Well, we're all sitting around waiting for Brexit to happen - might as well pass the time, eh?

But I wouldn't, though, Unless you brought it up.

Some interesting bedtime reading for you Remoaners while you're waiting of your Brexit.

http://archive.openeurope.org.uk/Con...op100waste.pdf

A mere 100 of the known examples of Eu fraud and waste up until 2008.

What the full list would be like up to date if it could be calculated doesn't even bear thinking about, though Lord knows that lot is bad enough.

Campaign's over Dick. You won, you've got your way, Brexit means Brexit.

Time for the moaning to stop.

WTF has it got to do with Brexit ?
I suggest you look at your calender.
Its Dec 2016 not early June.

Blimey - are you still trying to justify your position to yourself? I should give up if I were you.

Was there ever a more typical example of the hypocrisy and failure of a Socialist Regime than the EU itself ?

The rich get richer than ever before and the poor get poorer.
The North South divide continues to increase.

The unelected Fat Cats and Crooks in Brussels have just awarded themselves yet another pay rise for Christmas, while the poor sods at the other end of the scale, especially in S.Eu are worse off than ever before, with an unemployment rate of up to 50% amongst the lost generation of youth.

At least the majority of Remoaners don't even try to justify the shocking shambolic mess the EU has become anymore.

Their main defence or should I say diversion, centres almost totally around personal attacks and insulting the messengers.

That in itself tells us all we need to know.

:cool:

Wishful thinking. Dick still hopes it all collapses into a pile of rubble. Doesn't make much sense, because he'd be amongst those who'd suffer the most. But when you believe in nonsense, I think you could expect a senseless outcome... And that rather describes Brexit in a nutshell.

The forces that gave Brexit and Trump momentum coalesced around grievance rather than vision. There was no agenda, no genuinely thought-out project that the winners could soberly set about executing, just resentment. And the grievance narrative must be continued even in success because that is pretty much the whole energising principle.

UK companies still growing steadily despite Brexit fears - CBI

British companies continued to grow modestly in the three months to November and are expected to keep up that pace into 2017, a survey showed on Sunday, chiming with a resilient picture for the British economy so far since June's EU referendum vote.

The survey by the Confederation of British Industry's (CBI)showed private sector growth gathered a little bit of speed compared with the three months to October.

Retailers and consumer-facing firms said sale volumes edged higher, reflecting how many British households have continued to spend after the Brexit vote in June.

But for manufacturers, growth slowed and the outlook remained sluggish as cost pressures linked to the post-referendum fall in the value of sterling caused many companies to worry about inflation.

"It's encouraging to see that growth in the private sector continues to perk up, and that steady growth is expected as we head into 2017," Rain Newton-Smith, the CBI's chief economist, said in a statement.

"The high street has had a good month, even before we see the impact of Black Friday and Christmas shopping, whilst our manufacturers and services sector are seeing subdued growth."

Investment intentions for the year ahead stabilised after falling sharply after the referendum but remained below their levels before the June referendum, the CBI said
