There is no precipice Ken. One of the mantras of leave was "take back control of our borders". The swivel eyed loons ( David Cameron's words) have failed to deliver that. Same passport checks at all points of entry into the UK as we've had for years. With the same open land border with the EU we've had for years. Epic predictable fail. The same as was, who's getting in from Eire? No-one will know.
The perceived precipice in October is just a point of disagreement within the swivel eyed zealot brigade. Is it better to get a deal while leaving or is it better to get one when you're outside and keep your grandstanding do or die pledge. Pay your money make your choice on that one. Nov 1st you'll be presented with the same withdrawal deal. Either way a deal will be done.

This thread is very aptly titled. The precipice approaches!

“Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience”
But I’m not arguing with your mate about it, because you said it was years ago so he has the practice

Personally I can’t understand why they allowed the whole thing to happen.
We can’t even handle the fact some people are white and some are brown, which is beyond our control..
So they give us another fence to choose a side for a sit down and now people are throwing predictions and insults over at each other.
You won’t unite your own kingdom by dividing it more than it is.
People in general are thick as **** and it amazes me they had a vote on something the voters didn’t understand.
It might as well had had been unicorns vs dragons, then the racists needn’t have come out of their caves to vote but you’d obviously still have a moth eaten cardigan leading one side, Dianne Abbott’s abacus with the dead battery and the chimney sweep’s union, against a fat rich ***** and his mates from school

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.
