Club Tropicana (CT remix '18)   Let me take you to the place Where membership's Britain's disgrace Blue flag with lots of stars. Where strangers take you by the hand And welcome you

"Class"   From the bloke that brushed off Trophyshy's redundancy with absolutely no compassion. Not to mention that your favourite hobby is logging on here to wind people up about the things

There is some deep schadenfreude amongst a lot of British expats I know who live hear (they have all opted for German citizenship).

I got French citizenship (you can have dual citizenship with France) a few months ago.

 
A British passport is all of a sudden going to a lot less useful. It will be blue though, so that will more than make up for the long queues at passport control.

Actually they're going to be black.

Honestly, these people are incapable of anything but self-owns, both big and small. It's incessant. How the fuck are they in charge? :lol:

 

 

 

There was some MP a while back going on about how several food items in a supermarket could be cheaper / tariff free once we left the EU and it was pointed out that for each one the EU already had a free trade deal with the country of origin.

The OBR forecast a no deal brexit will be an additional 2% loss in GDP. This is on top of the GDP loss.from leaving the EU, which is already between 3 and 6% I think (but much worse in the NE).

 

At the same time, we are cutting our overseas aid by 0.2%, a move that has disgusted even the likes of Cameron. So we are voluntarily losing 10 times our wealth over some ridiculous esoteric notions about sovereignty and fishing rights than it would cost to keep children in the third world starving to death.

 

This country is fucking sick.

Martin, we've been over this. Britain is stupid. British people are, on the whole, moronic.

All the right wing cunts on Twitter etc banging on about it are exactly the same. Whereby the consequences of Brexit, a totally avoidable, self inflicted national economic disaster can’t be questioned unless you’re a traitor.

Of course, buried away in there are some things we do need to address eventually - if we're serious about tackling climate change etc. then we need to get back to eating more of what's local to us, and as a relentlessly consumerist nation drowning in household debt, it'd serve us well to learn that sometimes there are things we just can't have - but I'd rather it didn't take wrecking the economy and chucking away a generation's future to get people eating mackerel again. 🤷‍♀️

All this talk of fish is a red herring. We're talking around 0.1% of UK GDP so it's clearly a distraction. Some policy wonk decided even the most braindead brexiteer understands what a fish is. The real issue is LPF. Fish might be sold as some kind of victory if we have to make more significant concessions elsewhere.

There something on BBC news the other week about this fishing bollocks. They were at Hull or Grimsby or some other shit hole and the gist of it was that it used to be a huge industry employing loads of people and it could be again (more or less the exact words used to end the piece). It’s absolutely fucking shameless bullshit falling into the realms of pro-government/Brexit propaganda. Huge trawlers can operate with small crews, it’s shit work most people wouldn’t want to do, if they breach the quotas and bring in huge hauls then the prices would crash even if the European markets would buy them (which they wouldn’t, in retaliation for doing that), the quotas are the only thing keeping the industry remotely sustainable and that’s just off the top of my head. It’s absolute madness.

I made that point recently about any gains being made being more than outweighed due to the amount of fish sold to other countries in the EU. 

 

You still on any of this? Some of the stuff I've seen/heard recently is bonkers
