That interesting.

A bloke once said to me years ago. “Never argue with an idiot, they will take you down to their level and eventually you will both look idiots”

They are very good at it, years of practice

A good post.

As construction goes - funny one really as I have been told that building at our current speed it will take us 40 years to catch up with current demand so we NEED European workers to help with that, however, if we never had freedom of movement in the first place we probably wouldn’t be so far behind as quite simply less people = less houses! Yet again, however - we needed more workers as we are all living longer and we need 5 x workers to 1 x pension so we were stuffed either way!
The whole thing is a mess. Let’s just hope for a deal.

Thanks for your respectful post.

Gav.

You can only make a judgement of me from the posts I write on this forum

True. As you clearly state that your name is Butterbean, and insist on signing each and every post 'BB', it only logical for readers to infer that your first name is Butter, and your surname is Bean.

I remember your post in this very thread about the secret Jewish plot to replace the white British with brown people from foreign countries. From this I infer, at my most charitable, that you might be a bit of a nutter.

No doubt you think I'm a remainer ****er though, what does it matter?

At the end of the day, it's a fishing forum where we should all just try to get along. Brexit may divide, but carping should unite.

Speaking of which.. do you use those short rods Nash sell, or have you got a roof rack on that Mini of yours?

Bradford - thanks for standing up and representing what is, I'm sure, the majority of normal leave voters.

I genuinely don't think the UK was on a slippery slope to being ruled by Europe. It could veto decisions, it had the best deal possible by keeping the pound and not being part of the Schengen area. The UK still drives on the left, orders beer in pints, and has electrical plugs unlike anyone else's. It seemed to me that no-one was particularly bothered by the EU until the Daily Mail etc decided to wind people up about it and start banging on about Eastern Europeans. The UK could have had much more stringent immigration rules, as do lots of other EU countries, but never bothered. Alignment for stuff like food standards, electrical goods, workers rights etc just seemed like common sense to me. Ask yourself the question 'What will I be able to do after Brexit that I can't do now, because of the EU?" I'd be interested to know the answer. It's this lack of advantages that gets me. Maybe there will be more work in the building trade if there are fewer EU workers - that could be good for you I hope, but I don't know.

I think the euro has done a lot to flatten out prices across Europe. As you say, it's difficult to find a bargain. But if you do, you'll be limited to what you can bring back with the new customs regulations!

Anyway, cheers Bradford.

You’re comparing Brexit to a poxy thread on the carp forum about who takes a gold plated cock. Wake up

Fair point.

Although I'm pretty sure calling someone a punisher of the month is abuse

Or sarcasm

Or slander

Or something



It's nearly as bad as accusing someone of arrogance based entirely on your reading of their posts on carp forum....

One thing I've soaked in is it's a waste of time trying to reason with people who think they know better than others.
Punishers of the month comes to mind.

Hi Mal,

How apt of you to confirm what I wrote in my previous post.
Sarcasm is a form of abuse, because it is meant to belittle and slander another person.
Your reference to Rowan Atkinson's comic character, Mr Bean as a comparison to me is obvious evidence of it.
You can only make a judgement of me from the posts I write on this forum, which are in concise prose and written with a respect for the recipient.
You have no grounds for comparing me to Atkinson's bumbling fool other than me disagreeing with you.
Rather than being clever or amusing, I see it as a form of arrogance.

BB.

Regular readers of my waffle on here will know that I'm sarcastic

Is that another way of saying full of ****?

Well tinhead, you may need to expand your reading matter to include more than the toilet walls...


You know there is far more information in the public domain now. There isn't 350 million per week for the NHS for example, the standpoint and acceptable deal from the EU, the issues over the Irish backstop... ALL of this is now known but wasn't at the time of the referendum and this is just the obvious.

Unless you're in that minority of people who haven't learned anything new about brexit in the last two years, but I do seriously doubt that. Even a gooner must have soaked some of it up

As a country we now have far more information to base this very important decision on.

And where I can I read this information Mal ?

Good evening Mr Bean ( how apt )

I take issue with your comment that I'm only sarcastic (I'm never abusive) to those who disagree with me. Regular readers of my waffle on here will know that I'm sarcastic to EVERYBODY regardless of them being in agreement with me.

I did vote remain because as so many of those politicians said to the lovely Scots, I believe we are 'better together'.

And of course I accept that a small majority voted for leave in the referendum. It's a fact. However we are now equipped with far more information to counter much of the misinformation bandied around at the time and I believe this warrants giving the nation a chance to either change or reaffirm their vote with a lot more knowledge. If you put an offer in on a house, only for the survey to reveal dry rot and damp, would you feel it was right to still pay that first amount? I doubt it.

As a country we now have far more information to base this very important decision on.

Peace and love man, peace and love
