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

I mean especially when a lot of this is seemingly being driven by the obscenely rich Elton John and his wanky ‘final’ tour.

I'm struggling a bit with that mind - my partner had to apply for pre-settled status or whatever it was called and did so last year. Process was confusing as fuck for sure, but it didn't actually take that long. Why have so many left it this late?

Yeah but I'm normally one of those people and yet I managed to get this sorted out back in October. Struggling to believe there are 300k people who procrastinate more than I do :lol:

As someone in the visa system for a different country the processing time for applications like my residency one was 14 months when I applied in January last year. Its now 25.

 

The processing time for the visa I have in the meantime has gone from about two weeks to 67 days since last July.

I mean, fair enough but the processing time for my partner was 6 weeks.

 

And all EU citizens have had 5 years.

 

It sounds as though a lot of people have literally started applying within the past couple of months - and I mean fair enough to an extent, they're still ahead of the deadline, but I do think there does actually have to be a deadline. As much as I disagree with every single reason about why we're doing this.

My limited knowledge is that all the banks and I'm guessing other financial services companies planned for the worst case scenario of no deal from the start and shifted operations to offices elsewhere. 

 

We moved all EU client services to Dublin but I assume others chose other cities as appropriate. 

 

Billions in assets were also moved. 

 

It's affected jobs obviously and also tax revenues will reduce - I'm sure thick cunt Brexiteers will ignore the lost revenue and expertise as they're too stupid to understand it (CT). 

 

On the bright side were all setup to become a tax evasion monster without US or EU oversight - almost as if that was a motivation for those in power.

Yeah, it's the last bit I'm wondering about. Forgetting the ethics for now, what will that mean practically for the country's finances and our international standing? Was this really the plan all along and the principal driver of Brexit?

The people who orchestrated it, even the ones in charge who understood all of this but went through with it anyway (we'll call them the Tory party for simplicity) don't care about the long term standing of the nation or its finances, IMO. They'll be dead by the time we really have to confront what we've lost - i.e. 15-20 years on from now.

Interesting thread by Henig about the Nissan. I had thought the same. Our alignment with the EU on automobile regulation "is predicated though on maintaining a functioning relationship with the EU". We can't diverge much because if we do the EU could kill Nissan overnight by levying tariffs on their cars. Has all sorts of implication for NI and other FTAs going forward.

The plebs should know their place. Don't strive to be a top doctor, scientist, artist, lawyer  ecinomist etc. Get yourself sat down on your fat arse and drive HGVs 60 hours a week for minimum pay, and be grateful.

I d wonder though if the Express now has settled to be a parody paper like the Sport used to be. A few days they go they had a "serious" article about secret EU plans to merge England and France. My neighbour is actually a nice bloke but gets this delivered every day. It's just odd.

My Dad has had about twenty five years of reading the mail and it shows. I've got to change the subject and this was never him. He actually said the words 'do-gooder lawyers', 'left wingers' and something about an immigrant knocking over some old lad and not getting deported. He doesn't do social media so it's only LBC radio and the daily mail where this shit comes from.

My mam's the exact same. I remember as a kid, her telling me to focus on languages at school because of potential opportunities from working in the EU. 

 

Fast forward to 2016 and she's a Brexit voting lunatic who hates the England team for taking the knee. She's read the Daily Mail daily since I was a teenager.
