All immigrants to the UK are issued with an ID card or certificate. ID cards for all those residing in the UK (whether Brit or migrant) just levels the playing field.

That explains why he gets on with Trump, like minds.

Would you change your mind about the wisdom of leaving?

No.

I was answering the post of Assanah who referred to me personally as wanting more Indian immigrants. My answer was that rules of ENTRY should be the same for ALL imigrants. Not a comment on what happens when they get here.

BRITISH food and drink companies have rung up their best ever overseas sales as they cash in on the plunging Pound.

Brexit-backers hailed industry figures yesterday which revealed exports of everything from chocolate to salmon totalled a record £3.4 billion between July and September – up 12.1 per cent on a year ago.

You will have to explain the maths to tga, you will also need to demonstrate the costs now incurred by the same companies on any thing they import.

Nothing like a bit of currency conversion to make things sound worse than they are.

UK wealth down by S$2.1 trillion after pound falls post-Brexit: Credit Suisse, Economy News & Top Stories - The Straits Times

But the Credit Suisse report showed that in pound sterling terms, wealth per adult was 6% higher year-on-year as at the end of June and is a third higher than it was before the financial crisis struck.

So all must be good.

Terry's chocolate Oranges weren't any cheaper this year. But then again they are made in Poland, not the UK.

You know they'll just go out and buy more Range Rovers. Segments of the UK have done very well for years, despite the jackboots of the EU, etc. Which we are still in.

We shall see how those on the losing end of the economic scale do after we leave. Will they all be able to get thousand-quid armchairs, I wonder?

You have just applauded a post that confirms just how well the UK is doing as a full member of the EU with free access and all the benefits it brings.
