The Brexit Thread.
Research just out, floating voters picked Leave because the were unhappy with Tory cuts and disastrous austerity economics plunging us ever further into debt.

Anybody who still says "it was the will of the people" needs stringing up by the short and curlies, it was never their will and if it was, why are they so scared of holding a second referendum now that everyone knows what a bunch of conmen Leave turned out to be.

Can you put up a link to where all cars are going to have to be self-parking, because I'm fecked if I can find it (Daily Mail, Express, etc, automatically disallowed on the grounds of talking bollocks 190% of the time). 

"Now, wasn’t it the EU only a few years ago changed manufacturers dealer networks support, in forcing them to allow independent garages to be able to compete with the main dealer networks....." in short, no, they stopped them from voiding warranties on new cars because they weren't dealer serviced, an action largely led by a concerted campaign over several years by our own Trading Standards.

Now they're all banging on about how we're going to have to drop CE Marking and adopt some home-brewed version, utter crap designed to stir up more anti-EU feeling, as it happens I'm currently compiling the Technical Files for a major British Government contract, nothing in the real world about having to recertify everything.

Decimalisation started in 1969, when I did Tech Drawing at school (left in '74) it was all in metric, only when I left school that I had to cope with American inch (they don't like to call it "Imperial" for some reason), BSP, BA, NPT, fractional and decimal inch.

Can't see a return to non-ISO units personally, still order bacon and chicken, etc, from the butcher's in lbs, even if he weighs it and charges in kg's Big Grin

Sooooo!!!!!! May and wanker are re-opening negotiations then. The Brussels mafia have come out and said. A no deal would be a catastrophic disaster for the UK and the EU. They are absolutely shitting themselves. 

Listened to May tonight and there was no mention of a no deal. What a bunch of Weaseling bunch of wankers. I think you’ll find, we’ll have a common sense, grown up negotiations that both sides benefit. Don’t you just love politics.
To the Regiment! I wish I was there.

May is trying to reopen negotiations, but has nothing to offer, the EU countries are pissing there selves laughing at the UK's feeble efforts, May won't talk to other parties and is determined to run down the clock so that it's her deal, or no deal, as soon as it's done and the real shit/ fan interface starts she'll call an election and leave it for someone else to sort out.

It's taken 2 1/2 years to get nowhere and the Tories are proving themselves more and more incompetent, Trump is like a vulture sat ready to strip the flesh off us and shit everywhere, how anybody can still think this was a good idea is totally beyond me.

It's been going on a couple of months now :

Food industry and supermarkets advise food shortages due to delays at Dover and import restrictions, May replies "we'll make fresh food produce a priority"

Pharma companies advise drug shortages due to delays at Dover and import restrictions, May replies "we'll make drugs and medicines a priority"

At this rate everything's going to be in a priority queue at Dover, I hope the HGV drivers don't get paid by the mile Confused
