  1. Brexit, New residence permits

    Fiktionsbescheinigun   After 3 phone calls over as many weeks (takes forever to get through), since I returned from the UK and got a stamp on my passport, today finally some progress. I have been pressing either for the permit or a Fiktionsbescheinigung, shortly after a the phone call today I received an email confirming I have an appointment next week and to bring my passport and a biometric photo, so looking like the permit, hoping so anyway.
  2. Brexit, New residence permits

    I would be very interested to know if you have ever tried leaving the country when a stamp is older than 90 days without a having proof you are a resident?
  3. BREXIT positives and negatives

      I don't disagree with you but unfortunately more that 50% of those who voted in the brexit referendum did. I have just tried to explain why they would have thought that way, basically  I believe they were looking for a change in the hope things would improve.
  4. BREXIT positives and negatives

    Then take a look at the UK stats on child poverty and life expectancy over the last 20 years. Anyway I was responding to a dismissal without evidence of my evidence!
  5. BREXIT positives and negatives

      Well maybe but if you won't believe anything on a graph that does not agree with your preconceptions try using the evidence of your eyes or those of friends still in the UK. Ask them how things have changed in the last 15 years for example the waiting times in A&E, the cost of renting/buying housing, the length of the lines waiting for food handouts, the cost of getting a university education, how much you would get on the dole then compare salaries but don't try and tell me " the UK was not doing badly in the EU".
  6. BREXIT positives and negatives

    And finally this, which I believe confirms my assertions that the UK was doing badly since the start of this century.    
  7. BREXIT positives and negatives

    But this is what the people in the street were seeing :-   https://www.statista.com/statistics/382695/uk-foodbank-users/   and this          
  8. BREXIT positives and negatives

    It does not require a counter argument because it is a completely invalid premise. Wealthy high wage economies across the world have seen jobs move to lower paid economies for years, it is not new even for the UK, and those wealthy countries are still wealthy! Furthermore nobody here has yet responded to explain why the UK was doing so badly while still in the EU,  only your one line opinion that post brexit things are the same shit=shit!
  9. BREXIT positives and negatives

      Oh come on get real, globalisation with industry moving to places where the labour was cheap has been going on for years, it has been a problem in the EU with jobs going to eastern Europe and Asia and incidently even to a lesser extent to the UK with its lenient employment laws and low wage economy.
  10.   Good advice but particularly through a dealer as that exonerates them of most if not all responsibility if anything goes wrong, so be very wary if that is the deal/scam!
  11. BREXIT positives and negatives

      Nothing like one of your one line responses to enlighten us all - NOT
  12. BREXIT positives and negatives

    If no one else wants the job what is the problem with using seasonal workers it has going on well before free movement. Pay them in line with demand and not a pittance because the supermarkets won't pay more for the produce because the customers can't afford prices that give farmers and workers in the supply chain a reasonable living, that cycle needs breaking!
  13. BREXIT positives and negatives

      The same seasonal  workers who have always done the fruit picking but who, following the major reduction in the GBP to Euro exchange rate post brexit vote and now a need for visas, have found it much less attractive to work in the UK. Up the wages and improve the conditions and they will return to benefit from the improved spending power that will give them at home, plus a greater cost of labour should encourage investment in mechanisation. Thanks to LeonG for that excellent explanation of inflation reducing debt. 
  14. Desktop PC

    Powerful, reliable Windows 10 desktop PC for sale. 8 core 3.8 Ghz AMD FX 8350 CPU with high end cooler Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 Mainboard High end PCIe AMD RX 460 Graphics Card 240 GB Solid State Disk 2TB Hard Disk DVD Player and extra output panel with  memory card reader, usb and Firewire sockets.   ONLY € 185,- ovno   I originally put this item up for sale towards the end of last year at a much higher price but then found a use for it during the winter lockdown but it is now no longer required and is getting in the way under my desk, hence the reduced price. Despite that it has been upgraded with the bigger 2 Terabyte disk and a 530W power supply and Windows 10 is fully updated (21H1) which boots up in less than 20 secs. Viewing is possible if you are 3G and have a mask. Please PM me for further info.

    Perhaps you should have asked why the same job paid less in the UK despite the fact it was in the EU till recently?
