Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

Recommended Posts

International (non-EU) students pay about £14k per year in tuition fees. As a civil servant pal of mine said a few years ago - they pay for the free tuition of Scottish students. 
The utterly stupid, crazy thing is that we should be doing more to get these folk here. But they changed all the immigration and language criteria a few years back (thanks to Home Secretary Theresa May) and the numbers fell drastically. 

Completely agree, we should be offering degrees taught in Mandarin etc anything to encourage more students from abroad to come here not discourage it, our universities are an asset that will long outlive oil should we run them properly!

Read what he actually says. He 's clearly an absolute fuckwit.

Yeah, even if he is correct (and that’s very debatable) anyone who classes this as good news is also a fuckwit.

Report in the Independent that the government has already agreed a Norway Style transition period, the leak comes from a "key member" of the EU negotiating team - we're really showing them we're not going to be messed with.

Good.

There must be some Tories who still genuinely think that we have the upper hand in negotiations and a stronger bargaining position than rEU.  It is bizarre that these folks have the intelligence to tie their shoelaces and feed themselves.

Pay the same amount of money for a worse deal sounds the most Tory thing imaginable.

Worse deal for the general public, money making machine for the tories and their relations, their school chums and corporate mates.

Stop worrying folks.  We’re going to have an all new super fantastic trade relation with the US following Brexit according to Trump.

Will he have any opportunity to deliver this from his federal prison cell?

Tory MP Owen Patterson has hit out at Phillip Hammond's suggestion that we should remain in as close alignment as possible  with the Single Market and currency union.

Brexiteer MP Owen Paterson's tweet is sure to draw criticism from Brexiteer MP Owen Paterson, who has also said on the record that "Only a madman would actually leave the Single Market."

We're run by a band of incompetent hypocrites.

Heres my point and its been my point from the start of all this and its suddenly coming true.
Leave set out that they would seek single market membership but leave the EU as we ‘need to take back control’. Remain said well given we actually have a veto we have control and you’ll never get into the Single market without keeping the EU regs and laws you rail against.

So whats happened... well leave politicians are now saying ‘we’ll accept EU regulations, rule of ECHR/ECJ, allow free movement of people, continue to give you money and in return we’ll get single market membership and all we’ve had to give up is the control that the leave camp said we’d be taking back. We’ve gone from having an equal say in the EU to having all the perceived ‘negatives’ and none of the actual positives like say in the shaping of regulations, laws and representation in the ECJ. Win for us eh?

Some good news that our GDP figures today are exceeding forecasts.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42831655

And for a comparison of our GDP growth compared to the whole of the EU. It doesn't stack up too badly but who knows what will happen in the future?

Bit surprising that we're only just above the EU average when you have all the countries like Greece, Romania, Baltic countries etc bringing the average down.
