An interesting article:

Liam Fox is right: we need to talk about Britain’s trade problem | Coffee House

One way of helping that process along is for Britain to manufacture and grow more. To help achieve that there should be a sustained drive to buy British.

Well, it appears that Mr. Fox has finally been briefed about what brexit means, and that you can have as many trade deals as you want, but unless you have something to sell, it'll all be one-sided in favour of the other party.

He's probably also been briefed about losing the UK's best cash cow; Global trade with Europe. I reckon the prospect of becoming an export economy again is suddenly rather important. Will take a couple decades and a trillion or so to ramp up, not to mention a labour force that doesn't require cushy benefits, high salaries, and long holidays, so it can compete with Asia.

Surprise! Brexit is brexit!

"Donald Tusk urges help for Bulgaria’s borders
Council president says EU can ‘never again’ allow its borders being ‘overrun by migration.’
By CYNTHIA KROET 9/9/16, 5:00 PM CET Updated 9/11/16, 7:07 AM CET
European Council President Donald Tusk on Friday said that he will call upon EU member countries at the informal summit in Bratislava to help Bulgaria protect its border with Turkey from the migrant surge.

Speaking in Tallinn, after meeting Estonian Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas, Tusk said he will ask the countries “to send concrete, operational support to Bulgaria to protect its border with Turkey, in the form of border guards and equipment.”
“We need to show that we are aware, determined and capable of handling the biggest concerns,” Tusk said.




Bloody Foreigners.
Let's build a Concrete wall and keep them out.
What say you Ami ?

You still haven't got the hang of the differences between external EU borders, external Schengen zone borders and internal EU and Schengen zone borders, have you Dicky?

It's really pretty simple stuff if you put your mind to it and spend a couple of minutes with a map of the EU and a list of EU, Schengen and non Schengen countries.

Interesting article about referenda in general and this one in particular. Nicely and simply presented.

I won't quote anything from it as it has to be read from beginning to end to understand it (it's not long).

In essence it is saying that for a referendum to be meaningful, each result must be deliverable.

Brexit: Japan warns firms may move European HQ across channel if single market access is lost - BBC News


Japanese firms employ an estimated 140,000 workers in the UK, with Nomura bank, manufacturing giant Hitachi and carmakers Honda, Nissan and Toyota all having major bases in the country.

The letter warns: "Japanese businesses with their European headquarters in the UK may decide to transfer their head-office function to Continental Europe if EU laws cease to be applicable in the UK after its withdrawal."
EU Companies to Move Away From U.K. Banks on Brexit, Survey Says | Bloomberg


Twenty-eight percent of companies on the continent are planning to move away from British banks, with 20 percent shifting business to global lenders, the financial services consulting firm said Tuesday, citing responses from 63 European and U.K. corporations. About 8 percent of U.K. companies will increase the amount of commerce they conduct with domestic lenders, according to the survey.

The key concern for companies is whether banks operating out of the City of London will be able to continue selling goods and services freely around the EU after Britain formally exits from the trading bloc. More than half of the European companies think banks in the U.K. will lose their so-called passporting rights, compared with 37 percent of British corporations, Greenwich said, citing 128 responses.
Amsterdam ‘best placed’ to pick up global firms quitting London in wake of Brexit


Several international companies have started making plans to move their European headquarters from London to Amsterdam following the UK’s vote to leave the EU, the capital’s top economic official has claimed.

Consultant René Buck told the paper that similar sentiments were in play in the United States: ‘Companies want to make plans now, they can’t sit and wait for two years while the European Union and the United Kingdom arrange their divorce.’ He said one in three of US companies with their European base in London was considering moving out of the British capital and one in eight thought it was ‘probable’, based on interviews with firms in his network. He added that Amsterdam’s proximity, business climate and infrastructure made it the front runner to pick up firms moving out of London.

I'm also European, in the same way as Koreans, Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese (plus many others) are generically identified as Asian.

It has nothing to do with passports or the EU.

It's blasphemous to claim Britain is European. That would make us all foreigners!

Brexit is brexit. Get with the programme.

It is indeed simple stuff Eric,
but obviously your map is different to everyone else's.

I suggest you check the border between Hungary Eu and Serbia Non Eu where some of the problems were last year, until Hungary decided to protect itself much to the wrath of the Eu who have now, shock horror, done a u turn and decided to follow suit and do likewise themselves.

On second thoughts it could well appear at first sight that the EU are now following the lead of Donald Trump, as they are so bereft of bright ideas themselves. :cool:

Dear oh dear,

I see you are trying to resurrect the failed and much ridiculed fearmongering campaign from Cameron and his cronies, now just a sad and pathetic piece of history.

Well best of luck with that, as you obviously have nothing new to offer, but don't be surprised if it is equally ridiculed. :rofl:

Which is exactly what I'm saying, Britain needs to revive its manufacturing base. To do that it needs to change its mindset and rekindle Britain's entrepreneurial spirit that was severely damaged by global corporatism. It's time you stopped slagging off our country, cease selling it down the river to finance your selfish creature comforts. :thumbdown: Get off your workshy arse and put something back in for a change.

Oh my god Paulry.. where have you been since the 80's? Oh yes i see hanging upside down in the Antipodes..

The BRITISH were to blame for destroying their own Manufacturing base.. They allowed dear Maggie to do it.. The 'fear mongering' was rife then.. only it was directed at the North and the Midlands.. 'those disgusting places full of people who couldn't talk proper and 'made things' for god's sake.. Worse. they wouldn't do as they were told.. They organised against unfair practices by their southern boss's. She had to put a stop to it.... She did.. No more manufacturing...:eek: Clever eh...
