I just had one vote! Unfortunately I cannot change the result of the referendum for you.
I can indicate that the majority of the countries of the world are not members of the EU trading group and that they are not all built on sand.

If Brexit negotiations (both sides) are sensible and fair, neither the EU or UK should 'struggle' because of the decision.

Did anyone ask you to change the result of the referendum?

One would think that the amount of fun had at EMR's expense by the Leavers here would mean they could take the moral high ground when it comes to reading comprehension, especially as their comprehension of the bus slogan was different to how the media portrayed it, and many Leavers and remainers saw it as pre-referendum vote.

No-shit Sherlock!

I can indicate that the sun will rise in the east tomorrow morning too, and that's about as useful.

When the UK government wants to start being fair, hopefully the Daily Mail, Express and the Sun will inform their readers of this.

People struggling cannot blame Brexit because it hasn’t happened yet. They can only blame EU membership.

And here is some very good news from today, especially for all those who thought/think the UK financial sector is about to disintegrate and move abroad.

Boost in City hiring lifts profits at Robert Walters, says the news. (Links can be found across the internet so choose your own source.)

Fears that City firms would cease hiring while the UK negotiates its exit from the European Union have not materialised, the chief executive of recruitment firm Robert Walters said, as more financial services jobs pushed up its profits.

"It may be a trend or not, but the thing it does show is there certainly isn't a mass exodus of banks going on."

There had been fears that recruitment, particularly among banks and financial services companies, would be put on hold while the UK negotiates its exit from the European Union.

However, concerns about trade policies and so-called “passporting” - whereby UK-based companies sell services to other EU countries - seem to be easing.

Investment banks in London have been hiring more staff for specialised finance roles, recruiter Robert Walters said on Tuesday, in comments likely to ease concerns over the impact of Brexit on a mainstay of the British economy.

Walters said talk of banks moving jobs out of London due to concerns about their ability to trade across the bloc had died down.

Language barriers, a shortage of housing and challenging labour laws in other European capitals are barriers to moving.

"We're not hearing any talk that anybody is going to move. We haven't had any requests for hiring in any of our centres," said Walters, whose firm operates in cities such as Paris, Frankfurt, Dublin, Amsterdam and New York.

As far as I know the Daily Mail is the only newspaper that has crusaded so vigorously on the real issues of the day: the Lawrence case, Sergeant Blackman, plastic bags, MPs’ expenses etc. etc. Can anyone tell me any other newspaper that has been so active in campaigns that matter so much? If not, your constant digs at this newspaper seem hollow.

Read the ful ONS analysis , released today, almost every sector of the economy is concerned that brexit will result is labour shortages not just skilled.
Over 3.4 million immigrants EU and non EU are employed in the UK.
Some sectors of the economy rely on over 20% of immigrant labour.
This is good news for those wanting to move to the UK and bad news for those wanting to restrict immigration.
If the banks and financial sector need new qualified personel where will they come from ?

Today's Daily Mail would not go near the Lawrence Case.
It was a different paper in those far off days.

Today it would probably claim that those accused being good white British boys could not possibly have attacked a black teenager, probably up to no good.

Blackman was still found guilty.

It's just been humiliated again by having to pay damages after suggesting that Mrs Trump was more than a model.

I wish all these Brexiteers would wake up and look around and become a bit realistic ... but I am afraid that is not going to happen. There head is too far in the sand
:amen:

Too many Brussels heads in the sand unfortunately.
Probably get more sense out of Brussels Sprouts, than that bunch of unelected clowns who haven't got the faintest clue what to do or which way to turn to next.

As the Eu continues to crumble and fall apart, I wonder if it will even exist in five years time ?

Fortunately the U.K. is taking a positive approach and moving on to much bigger things, lots of them already in the pipeline.

Meanwhile the corrupt, dictatorial Eu desperately tries to stumble on from one self inflicted crisis to the next, with possibly its only hope of surviving a little while longer, being its extortionate ransom demand of the Uk.

:cool:

Jesus wept. You're suggesting that because the Daily Mail campaigned against plastic bags that it exonerates it from all of it's hateful shit stirring and blatant lies?

You're not just angry all the time, you've lost the plot too.

Good to know that an EU Directive is A OK as long as it's backed by the DM, though ;)

Oh good - we've got an estimate at last.

I'll let you know, if you're still around by then. :cool:

Either brexit won't happen or nothing good will come of this.

Nearly a year on and it is going from bad to worse. It'll be the average person and in particular the poorest who'll feel it the most. Sad.

Make no mistake this is not a smart grass roots ground up people power revolution, this is rich bank rolled elites using modern misinformation to basically do a massive con job.

The EU isn't the cause of UK issues, therefore leaving it fixes nothing.

However it will cause a massive set of new issues, for all sorts of things we happily took for granted until now.

Fun times ahead. Who likes an easy path anyway, it's fun to make life harder? 🤔

😂 The daily mail isn't worth the paper it is printed in. Basically a xenophobic hate rag.

Suggestion, try some other sources because that one is so biased it's not even funny. No wonder people are scared and hate fuelled, they've been pumping out that trash drivel for decades.
