    Brexit, WTF

    LeoV this discussion has taken place a 1000 times already, I'm quite happy to sit this one out as what ever I say or do, is going to make absolutely no difference at all to the outcome as equally the same for yourself. Back to hot rodding an Ebike then tonight, far more fun than to read the whining on these pages.

    Ummm I think the total traffic volume at a NI border point may be a tad smaller than a Rotterdam hub, never the less what you are saying is an electronic solution backed up with random checks is good enough for the Netherlands, so why not for Ireland ?

    Interesting article for you, make up your own mind when you consider that the original build up was to March 31st https://www.ft.com/content/8eeafb6a-5161-11e9-b401-8d9ef1626294

    You fail to take into account that the EU has a significant trade imbalance with the UK and also relies on the City of London for extensive financial services which are at present unavailable in the EU financial markets. Me thinks that you may read far to much into what was a pretty banal statement, bit like the Guardian newspaper articles of late, I would check with your psychologist on how sometimes people have normal conversations without any really hidden intent.

    So what you are saying is that the Irish border is a special case and all the containers coming into say Rotterdam that are electronically declared, are all genuinely fully legal and above board ?

    Depends on how much you want that champion helmsman on your club boat ?

    Jack we were using them in the late nineties as part of my business and they have been tested by the trillions throughout the world since, think how every runner in your local marathon is timed, they don’t exactly stop on the finish line and a tag scanned. Look up RFID tags, oh just had a thought, in the agri business you must be using them already. Cost is pennies per unit. Every unit has a unique code and can be read from a distance, that distance depends on type. You will immediately say but they are in a metal shipping container, yep it’s not ideal, but open the door and voila you have every code in a flash. If the customs were suspicious then random checks on RFID matching documented goods with the inference that goods without a tag are smuggled and sir, a very large fine will apply. if the EU / UK really actually wanted a free border at NI / Ireland then RFID detection would have been discussed already for sure. But this is all academic as in a grown up world without the political willy waving, we would have finalised the FreeTrade agreement that should have already been implemented and RFID tags wouldn’t be even be part of this discussion.

    As you know well the EU doesn’t always act in a reasonable and pragmatic way as far as agriculture goes, Foot & Mouth disease can only be passed from live animals, the EU at the time banned all animals from the U.K. whether they were dead and processed even they were healthy animals or alive. That simple move by the EU insured penury for almost all livestock farmers in the U.K. and had great effect on many businesses outside of the compensated few such as tourism. My own business went into virtual hiatus in the U.K. for nearly 18 months through a bizarre spin off association with the F&M causing my market to virtually close. It was only our exports to Aus NZ and in particular the States that meant my survival but I had to lay off my staff which halted an incredible development lead we had in a certain field of electronics and once we got going again, sadly the opposition had caught us up. One of those stories that just show how circumstances outside of your control can effect your wealth, Jacko made a fortune, I lost a fortune because a few Welsh hill farmers drove infected sheep over to neighbouring properties to be double counted. Life sucks sometimes.

    Stated that the border would end up in the Irish Sea months and months ago on this thread as being the only real solution to an age old problem. Fully acknowledge that it was bought up early in the negotiations but the shit really had to hit rock bottom before it was going to be really considered by either side. Alas I suspect we still have a wee way to go yet before it’s confirmed and that may well be after the U.K. is either timed out or kicked out of the Union, such is the shenanigans by our leading mumpties which are still not done and dusted. Perhaps Boris and the EU will indeed wimp it and bring back a BRINO deal after all, that however will just prolong the agony for both parties for years to come. Hey i’ve really really been bored by the content of late on the thread, always somewhat “construed” and predictable such is the froth and pithy style of most of writers, a few of you need to get jobs out among the populice at large and not among the upper earners that most seem to be from, to really get a feel for what the population of England thinks of this debacle. Reading an article the other day in the Telegraph ( yes I do read other daily’s on the other side of the fence as well ) there was a brilliant summation of the sate of play in forums such as these. I’ll put it up in part here for you to have a wee looksee. The Brexit crisis, of course, has provided irresistible opportunities for pomposity and unkindness. And these failings are no longer judged as harshly as they once were; indeed, they are barely even recognised as failings. Social media, which has replaced all other media as the way to get noticed, rewards qualities from which we once recoiled: attention-seeking, literal-mindedness, self-importance, lack of imagination and delusions of moral virtue. If Mr Pooter were alive today, he would inspire not pitying laughter but a hashtag campaign: #Justice4Nobodies. The people you might want to share a desk with in real life – the thoughtful fence-sitters, the hesitant dreamers, the peace-makers and compromisers – cannot make themselves heard above the din. Increasingly, they don’t bother trying.

    One Deal on the table is not actually a Leave Deal, it has no timeline to actually leave.

    Only for the likes of you Jack who has made an absolute fortune out of your family’s good luck in living in the wealth and job creation factory of London, then abondons ship at the first sign of business pressure to then mock and denigrate everything that bought them that wealth and fortune. One thing this little bump in the road has shown is, that mercenary companies like yours are just that mercenary companies.

    Not quite, there’s a big difference between U.K. wide and Northern Ireland only. https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/explainers/northern-ireland-backstop

    Not at all, the French are just being pragmatic about something that should have been resolved 2 years ago. The French are also just playing good cop, bad cop games to put pressure on for the muppets leading the pack to fold like the idiots they are to get the maximum advantage they can. Still on for the border to be down the Irish Sea which is something I raised oh months ago and you lot all ignored it, Tssk get with it boys. Boris has now nothing to loose by throwing Arlene under the bus, there was talk last night of her not standing in the next election, was that wishful thinking or was it fact, not sure as it was a late night radio discussion ?

    Not a chance, they are a basket case financially even more so than some of the old Eastern Bloc countries, would the EU really want to take up that debt ?. The only thing in their favour is they hate the Sassenachs even more than the French.

    Umm on a majority of only 346 and one of the more outspoken Remainers, she openly admits that she is having to look at other than her existing constituency for a job, talk about cutting and running whilst she can cause as much trouble as she can. Would she be elected as an independent, not a chance.
