European Union - In Or Out?

The UK should have regulatory alignment with its main market which would have allowed a far simpler and much better trade and services arrangement than the current abomination that businesses are now stuck with.

Regulatory alignment means being in the SM and the horrors that come with it. Get over yourself. Now is the time for a global UK , not hanging on the the protectionist coat tails of Brussels. Of course , the eu could always align with our rules , it might even prosper , but with a failed German defence minister running the show i doubt it very much :D

You're clearly living in a fantasy land down in Dumnonia. Trade and services have been significantly if not massively disrupted and is already impacting the economy at a time it can least afford it.

The Brexit fundamentalists would seemingly rather destroy the economy in pursuit of their fantasies rather than economic realities. But the rest of the population will learn a hard lesson and we'll soon see the UK moving back in line with the rest of Europe; just without any say in the matter now... :rolleyes:

That’s an excellent example of remoaner logic:

“yes, anyone can freely access our country as long as we can sell you our daffodils.”

Doh.  :D

Short term workers from the EU not coming over to pick daffs would be nothing to do with the ban on international travel and everything to do with leaving the EU then?

It's 'interesting' that no matter how many doom and gloom predictions made by remainers are proven wrong that they keep on insisting they know best.

When exactly did we change the regulations on anything in the past few weeks that moved us out of line with EU regulatory standards?

That's hardly the point. 

Boris and Co insisted the UK should be able to diverge from EU standards - no doubt from 1 January 2021, so the EU now needs to ensure that all products imported from the UK meet those standards. Which part of that did you miss, and what parts of the news about all the fish rotting on the docks have you missed?

Whenever you think you're highlighting a post-Brexit success, you just highlight another area where Brexit has been detrimental to the UK. 

The UK is/was a world leader in satellite technology, had contracts to build many of the existing Galileo satellites, and would have undoubtedly build many if not most of the future ones. The UK space industry has lost billions and throws its future into doubt...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-55665537

One UK company alone was involved in building 34 satellites for one programme in 15 years. 

How many satellites has Australia launched in its entire history,? Erm... the grand total of 20... :rolleyes:

You swallow the propaganda every time...

If you can highlight where i stated this was a 'post brexit' success that would be great. I didnt , and you've made yourself look a bit daft. It a common theme with you these days noted by many on here . I'll attribute it to Brexit Derangement Syndrome :D

You're right it's not the point. You stated that we would soon be "moving back in line with Europe" so I asked what regulations that we had changed that had moved us out of line.

Reasonable question that had nothing to do with rotting fish. Fish which have a lot more to do with bloody mindedness than regulation anyway.
