That's amazing.

I was outside my local a while ago, 3 or 4 Indian guys, my sort of age chatting. I heard 'banchod' (however it's spelt) and 'Gandu' (spelling again).

I chuckled. They all looked at me horrified. I thought it was hilarious, some really, really good phrases in Hindi.

This is a very good reason for leaving the EU.

We should never be in a position where another country can veto a deal between the UK and any other country

Well---that place which the xenophobic EU referendum 'remainers' are allowed to discuss--but only in a negative way, has 22 major languages so good scope.
Bhokan bot to you Scamp (but only in a friendly way!):lol:

It won't be a deal between the UK and any other country though, will it? It'll be a deal between the UK and the EU. And it's not in the interests of any EU member state to allow the UK to become a fiscal paradise at its expense, so either the UK agrees to sign up not to or there's no deal. Sounds perfectly reasonable to me and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other member states say the same (and actually it's a bit rich coming from the Dutch ;) but that's another matter))

What about 'Babycham' I think the name was one of the ECJ cases many years ago?

There will be many problems stretched across most of the 27 remnants of the EU

But the question is do you accept being BLACKMAILED or would you prefer Chamberlain's style, APPEASEMENT

The case was about correct product desription.
Babycham being one example.
Champagne can only be sold as such if produced in a certain area in a prescribed way.
Babycham was produced in Somerset and is not even made from grapes.
its the same legislation that gives product protection to Stilton cheese and many others regional foodstuffs
Not interference but product protection.

Neithet commercial reality,the economic health and growth of the UK.
The current and future jobs of the working population now and those to come., Not the retired or better off.

I like it. It shall be added to my repertoire.

I think you'd find people more interested in and positive about India if you didn't ram it down their throats incessantly....just a thought.

I found it on a Konkani site--I am sure there are a lot more!:lol::lol:

I only answer posts.
Apart from links regarding trade I never initiate the subject, just correct inaccuracy, (however when the posts above were excusing/belittling the historic suffering and akin to Holocaust denial I admit I had too little self- discipline and inexcusably prolonged the discussion).

This is an expat Forum as I mentioned above those living in USA, Canada, Australia frequently discuss their countries on this and similar threads --what is the difference?

When the UK enters into trade negotiations with the EU, it will be at liberty not to agree to any given set of terms. Agreed?

And when the EU presents the proposed terms to its member states for approval, any of those member states can do the same.

Why is one blackmail and the other not?

Is this blackmail? Hammond suggests UK without single market could become tax haven

I know---I just remembered it as a much exampled case when I was studying EU Law (should be on the Old Codgers' thread!!).

No, why the hell would it be a tax haven? Why is this a surprise? I would be deeply shocked if we still remained a member of the shite single market... This is why I voted to leave the EU. I voted to regain our sovereignty, make our own laws and control our own borders. We cannot do any of this inside the single market,

Remember *any part of eu* that lingers to us.... means we haven't left at all.

OUT IS OUT. (and i'm sure tax will be a nightmare to the poor/rich once we are fully out) - Tax haven? seriously doubt it. more like a tax nightmare.

You will be in for a shock then, expect 90% of the current EU directives that affect the UK to be incorporated into UK law.

But it'll be OK then because the mysterious banana-must-be-perfectly-this-shape law can be signed off by Britain and that's different because it means WE'RE TAKING BACK CONTROL.

etc.
