Not as much of that filth as you old chap. Just a casual observer.

Sorry @Wulfrun, but you are wrong with the passport.  Here is the updated one.

You guys sure have a bee in your bonnet about passports. 

 

It's just a color!

 

No one cares apart from you!

 

Get over it!

What a stirring speech! 

 

I defy anyone to watch it and disagree! 

 

Brexit Party MEP Rupert Lowe delivers final speech.

I disagree. Although this modest old fellow very eloquently criticises the EU as part of a farewell speech, it merely amounts to "the EU is shite and I'm jumping ship", which is of no real value. Who said the EU intends to make an example of the UK for others contemplating leaving the block? Did he not listen to the recent speech given by the new president at the LSE?

The problem I see here is eloquence/charm over fact.

The devil is in the details and not in the headlines. That will determine the outcome of future trade details.

 

Too much diarrhoea in one post? ^_^

Hey, Dom, how's it going?  Did you nod off?  

 

It's good to see that your stance has changed and that you have moved away from the hysteria in which you were caught up!  I've had a cursory look through the good old days of this thread just to highlight my point.

"Bad Brexit" Could Starve Britain by Next August, Farmers Warn

This was discussed officially at a select committee meeting:

Queues to Dover could stretch back more than 100 miles after Brexit if technology fails

The "technology" will come into effect just 2 months beforehand...:unsure:

even HF will have to admit now that Brexit really isn't worth it! ;)

 

To name but a few. (It was actually quite funny reading some of the drivel that you and your cohorts posted.)

 

Yes, you and the others were duped by Project Fear and developed Chicken Little Syndrome. The sky was going to fall in, Johnny Foreigner would be sent to the Gulag, the UK would become the Hunger Games and we'd all get the clap. That can clearly be seen in the early days of this thread. Like I say, your stance has softened a little, what with your emboldened quote below.

I do, however, applaud this!

 

As I said earlier in this thread, in 5 years time you will be hard pressed to find anyone that admits being a remainer. As Mark Twain said, 

 

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

As I was browsing the drivel, I came across the post above.  I hope the post below cheers you up. 

 

UK Tech Sector Beats US & China, Leading Global Growth in 2019

 

Quote

In what was another record-breaking year, investments in the UK tech sector soared to £10.1bn ($13.2 billion) in 2019, according to latest industry figures, a £3.1bn increase on 2018’s very strong figures and the highest level in UK history. Research prepared for the Digital Economy Council by Tech Nation and Dealroom.co shows that between January and December,  UK companies secured a third of the £30.4bn raised during the year in Europe. In particular, UK-based tech firms received more VC investment than Germany (£5.4bn) and France (£3.4bn) combined.

 

Excitingly, post-Brexit, with trade deals with the likes of the USA and other nations, the UK economy has every chance to grow yet further, with many of the election myths around American food standards and a large collapse in the Pound proving all but unfounded.

 

The UK is poised to do very well once it is unshackled from the EU.

You don't want to comment on any of the points he mentioned about democracy, accountability or the UK and the EU forging a new partnership which is beneficial for everyone? 

 

It merely amounts to, "the EU is shite and I'm jumping ship."  What a sad person you are, Dom that your glass is always half empty and you look for negativity in everything! 

 

Regarding the EU punishing the UK for exercising their democratic right; where the fuck have you been, mate!  The rhetoric from the EU/ media couldn't have been more obvious, not to mention the terrible cunts on here who would actually like to see damage done to the UK so they can say, "Told you so."

 

How EU admitted it wanted to punish Britain – ‘We want to shoot!’

 

EU to have power to punish UK at will during transition

 

 

 

As for the speech given by EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen,

 

Ursula von der Leyen: 'The bonds between us will still be unbreakable'

 

Quote

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says the UK and the EU will remain "best of friends and partners" following the UK's departure of the EU on 31 January.

 

Yes, what a lovely speech. The UK and the EU will be best of friends!  I really hope they make it work for everyone. 

 

I'm actually thinking of forgiving you guys after Jan 31st, I wonder if we can be best of friends, too? 

 

 :lol:

Erm... yes, very good, Wulfrun. :lol:

 

Anyway, here's an interesting perspective.

 

Yes, it's and article written for the Mail by the editor at large for the Bild

 

Ja, we Germans are jealous of Brexit: ALEXANDER VON SCHOENBURG says his country fears Britain as they face the reality of a resurgent UK

 

Quote

In Germany, fears are growing that the ship of Europe is sailing troubled waters. Soon it could be dashed on the rocks.

 

For years, EU leaders have insisted that Brexit would be a disaster for Britain, leaving your country hopelessly isolated. According to the relentless propaganda of the pro-EU cause, Europe would forge ahead on the global stage, ever more united, while the UK would slide into insularity and decline.

 

But that narrative is starting to look like a delusion.

 

Headed by a strong government and sustained by a dynamic economy, it is Britain that can look forward to the future with confidence, while the EU and its member states remain trapped in bureaucratic sclerosis, obsessed with regulation and welfare when much of the rest of the world is embracing commercial freedom.

 

After all the long years of Parliamentary stalemate, Britain's withdrawal from the EU will become a reality next week. 

 

The alarmists of Project Fear predicted that this moment would be the cue for economic meltdown, yet just the opposite is happening. Britain seems ready to prosper.

 

Like I say, it's an interesting read and on the money if you ask me.

I just hope all the predictions are wrong, that the UK can survive and stand on its own two feet without needing the help of the US and the Chinese vultures. I also hope that he EU remains and continues to grow because we need a strong EU to counter again the Chines and the Americans. somehow I can't see it working out like that.
