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.

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

I read this and have to say that Iím sorry for you and yours Jon. I voted out and still believe in it and would vote the same way again. I would however prefer a deal, would I leave without a deal just to get it done? Yes probably. Some will win and some will lose. I too work in construction and have seen a recession and itís not pretty but they are only temporary.
The thing you said about joining the ECC in the 70s, this is the thing really, we joined an economic area for trade and voted to do so. It turned us around and for that we should have thanks, however is that what we are now involved in? As to me we are in something so much bigger that I donít think we have much control over do we? Please these are serious questions not me telling you a fact. I say this as I truly believe that soon we will all just become one if we donít go. Maybe thatís a good thing, maybe not. We will prob never know. The thing that helped turn me was when Cameron went over their cap in hand and asked for concessions and got told to go home. That Iím afraid is more than a economic area.
I just think that far too many greedy fat cats have got their claws in us for it all to go completely pear shaped as before in the 70s we were on our knees but now being the economy we are we are never just going to fall off a cliff and become like an African state, we have come too far.
On another note..... remember going to the Canary Islands etc and filling your suitcase up with fags to sell to your mates back home! About £7 for 200 smokes over there it was, as well as all the other cheap eating and drinking out abroad, well what happened to all that? Was that the euro? Again this is a serious question as everywhere in Europe is just as bloody expensive as here now!
One day the whole world will go tits up and we will realise that chasing money was what lead us to it.

People are panicking, simple as that. It hasn't happened yet so that's all it can be! You are right it hasn't hit me yet, and being in the construction industry (historically one of the first industries hit by downturns), I'd imagine it would have done by now. Brexit is happening, that's a fact. Better people start getting ready for it, than trying to worry others that aren't in a state of paranoia about the situation.

You mean it COULD cause problems within the UK. People like yourself keep banging on as though they know what's going to happen. You don't. Nobody does.

It's started already. Open your eyes and have a look around. Big companies leaving the UK, manufacturers that rely on JIT supply chains cutting jobs. Lowest foreign investment in the UK in years. People getting less than one Euro for a quid at airport currency exchanges in recent weeks, etc. etc. Just because it hasn't hit you yet or you don't want to know about it doesn't mean it isn't happening.

It's like the weather forecast is crap, the sky is black, the wind's picked up and it's started raining, but you're still convinced you will have a lovely bbq in the sun if only people believed in good weather a bit more. All because you bought a big bag of sausages off a dodgy bloke called Nigel.
