There has been plenty of discussion about this and May has refused to pronounce on the matter thus far.

Here's a sample :

No 10 sources said May was still intending to honour the essence of what people voted for by bringing in a system that would be more effective at curbing immigration than the Vote Leave and Ukip idea. Theoretically, this could include a work permit or visa system, restrictions on entry to those with job offers, a quota system or an emergency brake.


However, the prime minister has given no details about how this might be done and has not answered the crucial question of whether the government could give preferential access to EU citizens over those from the rest of the world.

The dilemma for May is that a number of EU states have indicated that the UK will not get preferential terms for trading without accepting at least a degree of free movement for EU citizens.

It all depends on the type of Brexit that is eventually decided on.

Spain's failure to honour that treaty is the main reason I voted to leave the EU

There is a longstanding pattern of this "hypocrisy" (for lack of a better term) in the entire brexit mantra.

In this case, offering something blatantly racist (or at the very least, "white supremacist"), then claiming there's nothing racist about it - or even claiming those who feel it's racist are racist themselves.

It's been a pretty consistent narrative from brexiters to make statements that are obviously blatantly untrue or grossly misrepresented, then claim those who call it out to be "liars" or "delusional".

A good example of that is the label "project fear", applied to anyone who disagreed with the blatantly obvious fear campaign of the leave camp (fear of Europe, fear of foreigners, fear of immigration, fear of terrorism, et al).

It's one of those things that brexiteers think they voted for.

They'll convince themselves fairly soon that their referendum campaign contained pledges which mustn't be broken ;)

Looks like May will be making an announcement about the 'Great Repeal Bill' later today. :)

She will announce it at the Tory party conference , it is to satisfy them not the general public.
EU laws will become UK law.
BBC news suggests that that will be put to Parliament in the spring, then the fun starts.
The Tories are divided and only have a majority of 12.
The Bill will not become law unil we actually leave when ever that is.

To be honest ,your comment above could be actionable under UK Law !
So please be very careful in the future OK

I left UK back in the 80's because I was offered the opportunity of a lifetime.

History seems to have taught very little.

Time to come down from your ivory tower Ami and face up to the fact that you are never going to rule Europe, never mind the world, as you watch the whole Eu crock of shite disintegrate and collapse around your lugs.

"Existential Crisis" comes to mind.

:cool:

You're comparing the EU to Hitler's plans?

Just want to check that's actually what you're getting at...

Another example of the common "brexiteer hypocrisy".

Dick refers to "the German empire" (which is demonstrably nonexistent), yet Brexit is the result of a (naive) dream to recapture Britain's past empirical glory.

Then the "ivory tower". Yet that's a common stereotype of British culture and politics.

Then the "existential crisis", in no small part instigated by Britain's European paranoia, and greatly aggravated by its delusional uber-nationalist campaign to leave.

What's hypocritical about that?

You may laugh , but one off the reasons was to get away from my fellow English people who where so racist & inward looking that they could not see the great work & social life opportunities the EU offered.

Sadly it's now obvious ,that some off theses idiots have relocated out off UK , but still cling on to there in'bread UK mentality & even sadder is, they seem to infest the ExPat WS defending there stance.
Not open minded enough, they all should return to UK & help them sort off the bloody mess the have caused !
But that won't happen will it , because they all "key board warriors" & won't back up there convictions :amen:
This is why I use the word "tosses" to describe them !
