    European Union - In Or Out?

    FT today: British voters have “limited enthusiasm” for the post-Brexit agreement Boris Johnson’s government negotiated with the EU last year, with only one in five describing it as a “good” deal, a survey has found.

    THE point is even our Secretary for Int Trade didn’t think it was a great idea five years ago and it certainly hasn’t got any better! Funny how Tories will do complete u-turns to get into cabinet!!

    Liz Truss on 21 Jun 2016: Leave cannot name one country we would get a better trade deal with if we left the EU. #BBCDebate

    Some chance that this government will listen to the British steel industry, they never have.............
  6. My son is a BA pilot and he says it is fake news. “4 pilots have died in the last 3 months, but not linked and different causes.”
  7. Who is Andrew Turek? This is not accurate Blu.

    So it’s not cheap foreign labour keeping the wages down then?

    I wasn’t reading anything from Owen Jones, don’t even k ow who he is. I was listening to people who work at the local Wetherspoons where I live. Why are you so agressive?

    Best have a chat with Tim (Brexit) Martin to ask him if he plans to increase the pitiful wages of the employees that work in his pubs that are also in great shortage. Funny how it all pans out.....,

    If it is that easy how are we able to control immigration and our borders as promised in the Leave campaign? The 2M EU citizens that came to the UK over the last 10 years all took jobs in industries that needed their skills and hard work. We now can’t even find people to fill the jobs in the hospitality and entertainment sectors. Seems like it has all gone a bit wrong to me!!

    Depends what goods you are talking about. I still can’t get raw materials such as high tensile steels and certain aluminium grades for my engineering businesses and it is getting worse not better. One of our bigger customers (Tyco) has moved production to France because they can get the raw materials there without any issues and this means they won’t be using UK suppliers for machining!

    The farmers certainly don’t!!
  16. I have been an interested follower of this thread since it started, adding the odd post and comment here and there mainly to challenge DC2! ;-) I have been very sceptical of the views of Blupanther and Wolfsbane with their ‘extreme’ views on the subject. However, the more this ridiculous farce goes on I think the comments of Blu and Wolf are bang on the nail! Something sinister has to be at play for the shenanigans going on in government. I just feel pretty ashamed it has took me this long....... https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9687355/Scientists-warn-hundreds-Covid-deaths-day-delay-Freedom-Day.html?ito=native_share_channel-home-preview
  17. You make the assumption that everyone is travelling abroad for holiday. Some have businesses and properties abroad and therefore have responsibilities. What is the risk to the UK anyway if you have had both vaccinations, tests in Portugal and then after returning? Very minimal risk!!
  18. The only nimbats are the British Government ministers!
  19. And is that the reason they moved Portugal onto the amber list?!!

    Moto Gp, 2 And 3

    I agree the machinery he is on is capable of being able to produce the results but not the way he rides the bike, in my opinion. The younger riders have a different style and the bikes are suited to that style and I believe (and I think he knows) that he is unable ride the Yamaha to its full capability. Yamaha are not going to change the characteristics for Vale when they currently have 3 riders that have the capability to get on the podium every race. Sad to say this.....

    European Union - In Or Out?

    In a way, this proves the success of Brexit, because one of the main cases for Brexit was the madness of EU regulations. And one of their craziest regulations was that when flowers or vegetables were grown, they were picked and used. Now at last we’ve left the EU, so we’re free to make up our own rules, such as growing stuff and then leaving it to be eaten by maggots. The extra problem for the daffodil industry, apparently, is that our new sensible rules state that farmers are allowed to bring in seasonal workers but only for “edible crops”. So the easy way round this, if we want the flowers picked, is we all have to start eating daffodils. The problem for daffodils is they haven’t managed to get the same PR as fish. People who had never given a thought to fish have spent much of the past year screaming: “The bloody Austrians are stealing our whitebait.” So if the daffodil people could get the right campaign behind them, politicians would soon be yelling about the historic glory of our daffodils and the criminal neglect of seeing OUR daffodils unpicked. Then we’d have to send gunboats to attack the French and kidnap them to come and pick our daffodils, as is their historic duty.

    Britain is the worst-performing economy in the G7, and in the week that the prime minister hosts G7 leaders to launch his government's vision of Global Britain. Will our illustrious PM be able to keep a straight face?!!
  23. Over 90 per cent of people in England above the age of 70 have already been vaccinated with both doses, but less than half of those aged between 50 and 59 have, according to NHS data.
  24. The government is considering making coronavirus jabs compulsory for NHS staff, according to the vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi. He confirmed it was “something that we are absolutely thinking about” amid reports the current consultation on requiring people working in care homes to be vaccinated will report back this week. But Labour said "threatening" NHS staff to have the jab before being able to work was not a good idea.

    British exports worth billions of pounds have faced tariffs on trade with the EU since Brexit, according to an analysis of official EU statistics. Despite the tariff-free deal agreed with the EU, a study by the University of Sussex found up to £3.5bn of British exports had taxes applied. That accounts for about 10% of British goods exports to the EU. Some firms paid due to the complexity of claiming zero tariffs, or said they planned to reclaim the fees later. For exporters, maintaining zero tariffs under the post-Brexit deal is not automatic: it needs to be claimed on customs declarations that from January have had to accompany every export to the European Union. An analysis for the BBC, by the University of Sussex's Trade Policy Observatory, used European customs data from these declarations. The figures indicated that between £2.5bn and £3.5bn of British exports faced a tariff in the first three months of 2021. "What this analysis shows is that in the first quarter, around 27% of trade that could have entered tariff-free did not do so. "In some sectors and for some firms, this will no doubt improve, but it reflects the reality that leaving the EU has imposed real costs on firms, with long-term implications for trade and production."
