“Brexit is a shambles. I keep saying that. We could get to the end of the process and we’ll fall off a precipice. I don’t know if that will happen.

“I was talking six months ago about food shortages and everybody laughed at me. But now the supermarkets have come out with the same story.

“People need to start thinking. If we have no deal there could easily be an impact that some people don’t see, can’t see, or won’t see.”

 

Cllr John Hart (Conservative) – Leader Devon County Council

I wouldn't believe that man if it meant costing me my life as to what he warned me against.

Nobody knows what will happen when we leave it is all a guessing game.

You can get all the form you like on a horse race, but you would still not get a winner even with a one horse race, there are hundreds of variables that can affect the result.

Leaving the EU is no different. There are plenty to say what MIGHT happen and there are plenty to say what WON'T happen, but nobody will know what is GOING to happen until it has happed.

I am looking forward to the day when we are out and then there will be plenty who say, "I TOLD YOU SO". Not long now.

But it isn't only that man who is saying it. Those who know all about supply chains are saying exactly the same about the consequences of a No Deal Brexit.

@Lynne, But all those others you are talking about (whoever they are) are only doing what everyone else is and that is GUESSING. They may have a crystal ball which I don't know about, but I doubt it. I have a 22c gold chain, I think is is worth a lot. but I will not know it's worth until I sell it. Look at flogit, some tiimes they guess right, sometimes they are close and then other times they are miles away eitherway. So I will leave you to go on guessing what the outcome will be.

No, they are not guessing! If we leave without a deal then customs checks and tariffs WILL come into operation re EU imports/exports . That means hold ups (shortages) and price increases. 

 

Why do you think all the stockpiling has been going on?

That is what they are saying Lynne, but you will not know until it happens. I have heard it all before. This will happen, that might happen, this could happen and then when it happens, it is business as usual.

And do you know why they are saying it? Because that is what will happen. Look up WTO and No Deal Brexit.

Lots of info on the 'net about it all.

 

If you choose not to believe it that is up to you.

I cannot be ***** to argue with you any more.

 

(and anyway I must go now - got to go out and stock up some more on supplies. You know...........just in case........)

The papers ,media, and goverment are all controlled by remainers who cant accept that 17 million voters decided to vote leave, this handfull of people will stop at nothing to stop us leaving. Now is it that they know better than those who voted to leave or is it they have more to lose because i believe a little short term pain will give us long term gain. There will not be a no deal Brexit the reason there are over 400 MP's who voted remain and they will vote against a no deal Brexit and probably extend article 50 and on and on it will go.

The Daily Mail?, The Telegraph?, The Sun? The Daily Express? - controlled by Remainers?

Really?

You can't have looked at the Mail recently, that is now an anti-Brexit rag, or at least supports Treason May's Remain deal.

They promised us unicorns. They gave us a lame donkey with an ice cream cone on its head.

Brexit was never a good idea but don't let that stop the diminishing "majority" stop this Countries self harm sad

Why did you put the word majorty in quote marks?  The majority who participated in the referendum clearly voted to leave.

@Scapegoat - love the unicorn/lame donkey comparison.  They say a picture paints a thousand words and the imagery conjured up by that comparison says it all. Brilliant. Love it. Perhaps it should be put on the side of a coach that then tours the country.......... 

BTW - I see our hard Brexit supporting MP is still peddling hard Brexit mythology - this time about Article 24 of GATT.

Before the referendum the terms hard and soft Brexit did not exist, it was just Brexit.  They are an invention by Remoaners to try to dilute Brexit into a state of Remain.  Personally, I prefer the term Sovereign Brexit.

Language is such a dynamic thing. For example, I wonder how long the word Remoaner has been in existence? And who invented it?

F*ck off is dynamic aswell, it is universal. there are many people in this world that do not speak English, but you tell them to feck off, they know exactly what you mean.

My mother always told me "Stick and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me".

 "Stick and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me".   Which is utter bollocks because constant bullying via words have driven many people to suicide. Yeah, you can have freedom of speach but freedom doesn't mean without consequence!

Never in the history of the U.K. has so much been messed up by so few. wait for the next G.E.

Millions more voted OUT at the referendum than voted for the conservatives at the last G.E.

Reap what you sow comes to mind.
