It even happens here.

You know, perfectly normal Brits paying a fortune for their holidays abroad, and then you get there, the place is full of foreigners, and they're too lazy to learn or speak proper English.

Good job we left that mess. Maybe by next year's hols, all those foreigners will have gone home.

The Poles looking to leave the UK after Brexit - BBC News


Look, this is how Brexit was promoted. It shouldn't come as a shock. Leave won, remember?

Bad news for all those benefit scroungers who will no longer have the excuse that EU migrants are taking their jobs.
What will be their next excuse.

Gosh no really, thanks for enlightening us. Do you have a link? :unsure:

Funny the current weak pound is because of Brexit. But good economic news, well that is only because Brexit hasn't happened yet.

I think Remoaners are just praying for recession and doom and gloom at whatever cost simply for the satisfaction of saying "told you so".

Can't be true of course.

Our resident remoaner experts know much better than that. :cool:

Well for once you are right Dick .They will stay in Sunderland..Only because the UK Government (who I actually thought was a Tory one lol:starsmile:) Is going to SUBSIDISE them to the tune of well.. however much that say they will lose by not being in Europe.:starsmile: That's your tax money Dick... Oh dear sorry .. No it's not is it.:o

Well, actually, the UK is still enjoying the same trade and benefits of the single market. But that's going to come to an end in a few years.

The fall in the pound and the decrease in foreign investment is only in anticipation of that. When it actually happens, then reality will strike.

But until then, there's the expectation that nothing will happen and all is going to be fine. It's like if you bought a house, then a couple years later, suddenly losing your job and not being able to pay the mortgage anymore. Nobody expected that... (Or did they?)

Meanwhile...

For those who have the capacity to read more than a paragraph at a time, here's what the Economist thinks about it:

I will jump through hoops with delight if UK manufacturing jobs return from those low cost countries we are clamouring to do deals with.
I will jump through hoops of delight if those at the bottom in terms of income, employment potential etc find their lives improving.
Is there one brexiter who actually believes that any of the above will happen.

You would - but that's because, in common with most of your Leaver friends, you don't read what is posted.

In fact, the only people who are definitely hell-bent on destruction are those who are saying that immigration must be brought down at any cost - in other words, that they are prepared if necessary to scarifice anything and everything to achieve that. And unfortunately, that at the moment includes the PM.

Check your facts.

The Govt has made no such promise to subsidise or hand taxpayers money to Nissan.

Indeed it still remains to be seen if Nissan will need any future assistance of any sort.

Project fear again.

Lord Bamford, the chairman of JCB has dismissed claims made in recent weeks that UK businesses need the country to remain a member of the single market after the UK leaves the EU.

Speaking in light of a number of revelations yesterday showing the economy has remained resilient since the vote for Brexit, Lord Bamford insisted that any trade tariffs imposed after Brexit would be a “price worth paying” and that UK businesses will take it “in their stride”.

He added that the cost of European Union red tape and regulations “proves that this single market has not created a level playing field”.

Brexit: Britain ranked ahead of France and Germany as place to do business by World Bank | UK | News | Daily Express

"Why leave? Tax crazy France and meddling Germany BURIED by Britain in top business survey

FRANCE and Germany’s hopes of luring companies away from the UK after Brexit were dealt a hammer blow today after the two countries were blown out of the water by pro-business Britain."


Yes, shoot the messenger by all means.

It still doesn't alter the result of the WOrld bank survey.

Why the sudden interest in facts, Dick?

In terms of EU immigration and the single market, there seems to be no appetite for compromise.

I suggest that the majority of people who voted leave are not racist or even anti EU per se. But because they dare support the concept of controlled immigration, they are branded as such. Certainly on here it is not possible to advocate controlled immigration without lighting the racist fuse. There are probably even remainers (admittedly not from the left) who also regret the single market being synonymous with free movement.

I also suggest that those of us who reject the idea of closer EU integration, see free movement as one of the two big supporting pillars of a Federal Europe (along with a single currency which we've so far avoided). This was the overriding issue that influenced the referendum result.

From previous link....

"The UK is rated as far more open to entrepreneurs and less riven with needless red tape and bureaucracy than its two economic rivals in a landmark survey by the World Bank.

Its results will allay fears that companies are looking to flee these shores post-Brexit, showing that the grass is far from greener on the other side of the Channel. "


"Companies looking to relocate to France would face huge levels of stifling bureaucracy and sky-high taxes eating into their profits, not to mention a socialist, anti-business establishment.

And Germany is not much better, with Angela Merkel’s country ranked as one of the worst places in the world to start a new business. "
