Anyway, you can't have an LMO regime even if you wanted one. The UK is in a single trading zone with the rest of the EU, and that means free movement of goods, capital and labour across the union.

Canada, on the other hand, is in NAFTA, which doesn't permit free movement of goods (all those customs people at the border ready to pounce with GST and PST demands on people who got their cars repaired in the US) and doesn't permit free movement of labour.

I am just telling the facts of what has happened in my area, it could be different where you live and maybe you are not affected.

You seem to have misunderstood alot of what I have said. We are all entitled to our opinions, you have yours I have mine. And I would rather base mine on real life and what is happening all around me rather than what Politicians
and other people say.

Fact = Immigrates for what ever reason do get cheques to pay for cars.
Fact = They even get FREE driving lessons.

This is fact not hearsay. Why do I know this, I`m a Driving Instructor.

I'm sorry to be rude but you obviously aren't well educated (you can't even spell basic English words like "immigrant") and probably aren't very intelligent. I expect you simply misunderstood the situation.

Evidently mis-spelling a word is a sign of lack of intelligence. Why do you always have to be so obnoxious when someone has a point of view other than your own?

Oh don't be so silly. Save your sympathy for the immigrants who daily have to put up with the consequences of the lies peddled by these idiots.

You see? Angela has caused us to argue. Even the spelling's going downhill.

She really is a witch. Burn her!

I agree here. This thread is interesting. No point being petty here picking on spelling errors.

I would rather be a bad speller than a rude person any day of the week.

But thank you for your opinion.

No, we are just liars. The facts were that: where I used to live two guys worked at a PCB assembly plant employing hundreds, and over a 3 year period immigrant worked were hired almost exclusively, employment conditions deteriorated etc. The two guys both posted their cars for sale on the employee notice board and same as your example happened. I saw photocopies of the cheques myself. But of course, we're just liars aren't we ?

I'd rather be a realist than a puffed up inflated chintzy old ladies ballgown full of brain anaesthesia.

Well, I would rather be rude to a bigot than make and peddle false stories to make life miserable for immigrants.

I'm betting that you don't know why the cheque was cut, and I'm betting that "for a free car because you're an immigrant" is not the real story. Giro cheques get written for all sorts. I knew a waster years ago got a cheque for £1000 for new bedding for his 7 kids. They didn't get new bedding, but he did get a new TV. And a lot of booze. So the truth was "Government gives wastrels free money for TVs and booze"?

But, as we know, the lie travels round the world before the truth gets its boots on.

Sorry, got to bite and if this is what turns you on then, enjoy…

Bigot
A person who is utterly intolerant of any differing creed, belief, or opinion.

Now does this remind you of some one?

If the only thing you can fall out with me is my spelling, on the subject, then who has WON.

Not once did I make any derogatory statement about you, I was pointing out facts that I know to be true, and if this upsets you maybe you should get out into the real world and open your eyes to what is going on around you.

I am certainly NOT a Bigot.
