Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

You clearly don't realise many countries outside the euro are tied to the ECB, similar to the ERM. Other outside countries are also constantly called upon to assist in bailouts.

For example, the UK was called upon to bail out Ireland to the tune of 7 billion in 2010 alongside the ECB, who have, incidentally allowed another property bubble to develope over there.

Like I said, do some research.

You're apparently the expert. You called the Euro a "ponzi scheme". My limited knowledge of this term is something like the Farepack debacle. 

If you don't know how a "ponzi scheme" works then don't use the term.

It makes you look ignorant particularly when you're discussing intricate political and constitutional affairs. Just saying.

That's the garage in Cairneyhill run out of Diesel. Farmfoods are out of slabs of various fizzy pop with the manager admitting that further supplies "are unlikely".

 

 

I filled up there today ( I live there, and I was needing it as it was 3 or 4 weeks since I last filled up), and it was definitely busier than normal.

Dawson Park Boy would allow you to vote on the SIMD/own a car criteria! You're winning at life!

I've just described it very clearly to you, I'm not sure how I can make you understand if you still don't get it. 

You don't understand how a "ponzi scheme" works. You described the Euro as a "ponzi scheme".

To run a ponzi scheme you require new investors regularly to pay for those already involved. If this isn't the case the whole thing collapses. I fail to see how Croatia joining 8 years ago, but not using the Euro maintains a "ponzi scheme". 

If you don't understand this very simple fundamental, you can't possibly understand more difficult stuff.

In reality, the EU tell the national govts (especially the small countries) who to appoint, and it's invariably globalist patsys.

If Scotland were to become independent and then join the EU they would be one of the smallest member states, this would meant the EU would dictate everything, from commission appointments to national budgets. Scotland would likely be corralled into joining the biggest Ponzi scheme in the world, the euro as well.

There's f**k all difference between the EU and the Nazis. They're certainly both run by the Germans.

 

What is the basis for the highlighted parts?

The last two sentences should see you banned for your own good. They'd be unacceptable at the best of times, and they certainly are in the context of this discussion.

I note you didn't rebut my previous replies to your retarded comments about the shortages. The fact is you have no answer to anything which goes against your narrow echo-chamber view. Feel free to f**k off to Brussels when we get independence.

Retarded comments? That's poor.

Best you give your keyboard a rest tonight mate.

Christ you're thick. I explained that outside countries are also tied to the ECB via an ERM and as such are called upon to keep the project afloat. Sorry if you can't get your head around that.

It doesn't explain how yer "ponzi scheme" hasn't collapsed yet, Euro member/ERM or whatever. 

Post some sources. Academic ones preferably.

To get back on track though- shortages in fuel. Nae HGV drivers. Gaps in ordinary goods on shelves. Medicines (including MS stuff for myself and Calpol for small children) unavailable. Limited storage for gas, particularly compared to our European "partners" (and prices MUCH higher too). 
Things are great, no?
Sounds like banana republic.

That’s him punted now, I think. All his posts are gone at any rate.

Massive thanks to whichever mod it was. 

Yikes.  That is less than 24 hours after he joined.

Take note.

Bound to be a question in some P&B trivia quiz in the future.

I'm pretty sure these "come over for 3 months but then gtf visas " will have lorry drivers queueing to come back 

It’s a crazy decision from the Tories.

Some Leavers will be furious at this perceived climb down.  Other Leavers will recognise that maybe there’s a big downside to leaving.

Remainers will rightly be saying “we told you so” and all for a gesture that is likely to have near zero impact.

From a political perspective it’s a bizarre decision for Johnson.  You hate love to see it.

Wait until the strike action starts at our ports (and it's imminent) not to mention the financial and social impact when inflation really sets in, coupled with the removal of furlough and the additional UC £20 top up.

As someone who's just returned from mainland Spain this week, I can confirm that the supermarkets and shops are fully stocked, the Bars, Restaurants and Hotels are fully staffed and there's no fuel shortages or queues anywhere. In fact the only queue I encountered was the "Non EU" passport holders at Malaga Airport which is yet another direct impact of Brexit and just another inconvenience to add to the list of serious repercussions.

As you say, great decision !!!

I see that the official UK government line is that the driver shortage is a good thing, because 'British workers' will automatically get paid more. 

Is this true ? Is there any sign that those sectors that pay low wages....hospitality, care, transport etc....have suddenly had an epiphany simply because we've hounded many of their foreign workers out of the country ? 

That's not the impression I get.
