Metoo. I also hope, that all EU citizens will cancel the assignments of British service providers and will assign EU providers instead.😄🤑🤑

None of that nasty protection from dumping , lower quality and standards that UK companies and employees currently enjoy.
The cheaper the imports the better, its what brexiters voted for.

Ah, ok. Moving on, rather than moving back to their homelands. Good to know that there's easily available work elsewhere in the EU - you and your pal were making it sound as though the UK were somehow going beyond the call of duty in providing jobs for all.

Could we have a status update on the Brexodus? You're saying half a million (of an estimated 3 million?) are leaving but the other Brexiters are saying they're still flooding in at a faster mass-uncontrolled rate.

It also found that 72% of those who voted leave thought that £615m a week would be too high a price to pay for the bespoke deal; while 78% felt it was worse than they had hoped for when casting their vote in the EU referendum.

When forced to choose between the four scenarios described, more than half of all those polled – 51%– opted for the Norway-style deal, which has the least impact on public finances and trade, as well as the fewest additional controls of immigration. Leave voters also narrowly preferred this option – 37% compared with 36% who backed a bespoke deal.

Portes said: “If we are to decide what sort of Brexit we want, the least we need is a menu, with prices. The one we have prepared represents the government’s current best estimates. It’s up to us to decide which of these prices is worth paying.”


Perhaps these Leave voters would like a chance to rethink? You know, change their minds, in a very democratic sort of way?

Below graphic is also from the article.

We had the same economic project fear before the referendum.

Unemployment would rocket. Tumbleweed would billow through deserted high streets. Share prices would crash. The government would struggle to find buyers for UK bonds. Financial markets would be in meltdown. Britain would be plunged instantly into another deep recession.

It hasn’t worked out that way. The 1.4% jump in retail sales in July showed that consumers have not stopped spending, and seem to be more influenced by the weather than they are by fear of the consequences of what happened on 23 June. Retailers are licking their lips in anticipation of an Olympics feelgood factor.

The financial markets are serene. Share prices are close to a record high, and fears that companies would find it difficult and expensive to borrow have proved wide of the mark. Far from dumping UK government gilts, pension funds and insurance companies have been keen to hold on to them.

City economists had predicted an immediate rise in the claimant count measure of unemployment in July. That hasn’t happened either. This week’s figures show that instead of a 9,000 rise, there was an 8,600 drop.

But it is obvious that the sky has not fallen in as a result of the referendum, and those who said it would look a bit silly. By now, Britain was supposed to be reeling from the emergency budget George Osborne said would be necessary to fill a £30bn black hole in the public finances caused by a plunging economy. The emergency budget is history, as is Osborne.
https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...y-project-fear

Things have continued to show no massive inflation, no emergency budget required, no increase of 800,000 unemployed, no rapid house price collapse etc - these were all meant to be immediate issues straight after the vote.

Global Future is a pro mass-migration "think tank" sponsored by UK elites - do you think any "research" it publishes won't push a remain agenda?

If UKIP produced a "study" of the opposite you might query the assumptions etc, but a remainer "think tank" and you lap it up.

What remainers can't seem to learn is that you don't win by fear, you win by showing hope and positives.

I am sure we should take any report from those who refer to peasants, lower orders,migrants from bongo bongo land seriously.

What has the Brexit government continually delayed its report on the effects and contribution of immigration to the UK.
The last thing it wants is for the brexit claims to be proved to be the rubbish we know they were.

Oh, stop acting like Flange and his band of wankers wouldn't have been jizzing their pants for a second referendum if remain had won with anything less than 75% of the vote.

**** you and your double standards.
