Parliament  Should of been Disolved and all this rabble thrown out.

This undemocratic lot who have thrown out the will of the people will I hope regret there 

stance, for we will not forget or forgive you.

Unless we get a no deal brexit, which is what we voted for, I'm voting Brexit Party. Everyone I know is doing the same.

The UK Parliament have sided with the EU against the British people. UK Parliament is as hated as the EU.

We will never forget this and will never forgive these traitors.

I don't remember no deal Brexit being on the ballot paper? There were no options as to what any deal would look like. How can you say it is the will of the people for no deal? I agree the result of a non-binding referendum was promised to be upheld by the PM who then ran away was won by leave but it say leave with a deal.

27 Mar 2019 09:08

There was no mention of a deal. Exactly as you say.

Question - "Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?"

Answer - "Leave"

Rig up trade deals, yeah that's great.

But what is this current deal bargaining about?

It is all about staying in the EU. All a fabrication.

Jacob R-M apparently now saying that he will back May's deal provided the DUP agree to do the same.


27 Mar 2019 09:33

There was no indication of how we were going to leave. If we had started discussions with the EU straightaway rather than waste time then come up with a plan that we had no idea if the EU would agree to it was extremely arrogant. The side I voted for lost and that I accepted, awful decision, but accepted.

The shambles since, businesses moving operations, businesses closing due to uncertainty (although I think so of the businesses used Brexit as an excuse), everyone coming with their own version of Brexit, certain MPs promising a utopia where the world needs us and everyone benefits, etc.

May should have been camped in Brussels from day one getting a deal not faff for 2 years then panic and try and push through a deal through parliament but threatening and bribing MPs to vote for a deal that has been rejected twice.


Leaving was always bad for the country and the inept Government as made sure we all know it still is.

Banks and insurance companies have already moved billions of pounds worth of assets out of the UK. Aviva moved assets to Ireland, as did Barclays. Bank of America is moving to Paris from London. Ford said no deal would cost them over 600 million and would consider moving operations. Lloyds of London who has been in London for 330 years is moving part of it's business to the EU. Moneygram moved to Brussels. Nissan relocated some of it's manufacturing to Japan as a trade deal will soon mean exports from Japan to the EU will be tariff-free. Panasonic moved to Amsterdam. P&O is operating certain routes under the Cypriot flag to keep the tax in the EU. Philips moved to the Netherlands although they said it wasn't to do with Brexit they had said previously said it would move if there wasn't a suitable deal. Schaeffler moved out of the UK citing uncertainty.


I could go on. Although some of these things may have happened anyway it is hard to not think these are in some part due to Brexit.


A good indication is always what the financial institutions are doing. They are moving out of the UK.


Leaving the EU was always a lot more complicated and nuanced than Brexiteers would lead the general public to believe.

Who cares where insurance companies regisiter their 'assets'. They are still obliged to pay out their claims and will still be providing insurance to the UK.

Just like who cares where banks register their dodgy assets, i.e. collateralized debt and loan obligations that will probably never be paid back and loans on inflated house prices.

JRM is as bad as the rest of them.  A deal that was bad last week is still a bad deal this week, nothing has changed.  At least the DUP stick to their principles.

Moving assets = moving money out of the country. This includes moving jobs. But who cares? The people losing their jobs? The economy?

It is clear the PM is going around bullying and making promises to various people to get her deal through as nothing as changed on it. I think that worries me more than the poor deal she wants to push through. What is she promising and who is being bullied by her?

27 Mar 2019 13:19

Banks 'assets' are loans they've made. Money deposits are banks liabilities.

Also, the UK has the highest employment in europe. It's all project fear.


Yep PM's tactics are disgraceful.

Bank assets are also their cash/reserves

27 Mar 2019 15:14

Banks only hold minimum amount of cash reserves, and have to do so by law.

27 Mar 2019 19:12

May quits so we'll get a new PM who we won't have a say in who it is. Is that democracy?
