    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I don't think this is aimed at Theresa May personally, she knows the position she's in and so does Tusk. They get on very well. It's a message to the UK and it's citizens in denial, telling them to wake up. It's especially a message to this bunch of failed, sacked politicians who've lied to the people and produced nothing in two years. Duncan Smith, Fox, Davis, Johnson. No marks who've been run out of jobs previously, some of them more than once, and who are leaving increasingly desperate Brexiteers with egg on their faces. No idea, no brains, no plan. None of this is a surprise, they have proven to be useless and a threat to the UK. As Macron said "“Those who explain that we can easily live without Europe, that everything is going to be all right, and that it’s going to bring a lot of money home are liars,” he said. “It’s even more true since they left the day after so as not to have to deal with it.”

    This is pretty much as it stands. We have dog whistle politics as the vulnerable masses have been lied to, and arguably they're going to find their own rights and entitlements a lot more vulnerable in future because they're unwittingly leading themselves into a much less secure future. And they voted for it.

    A debunking of the propaganda trade report that was issued yesterday, with serial shagger Johnson and failed leader Duncan Smith promoting. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1039508952877170690.html And another one, concerning Rees Mogg. https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/brexit-jacob-reesmogg-steve-baker-economists-for-free-trade-a8533021.html

    He has recommended investing money outside of the UK to cushion the impact of Brexit. Is that fake news as well?

    But you cannot define equally, that is your problem. Do you think we should be treated as equally as Canada, or Norway...or as equally as the USA, Indonesia, Japan or China? Because they're different. So take your choice? We could be treated as equally as Germany and France, but we have rejected their rules of equality ? Do you think that some are more equal than others?

    Why are Britsh people so lazy ?

    yes I can, but don't take my word for it. If you were in the industry here you should not need to ask such silly questions. Do your research on google, easily found.

    How far is too far?

    very different. People go out for Sunday lunch here and will drive 90 minutes each way without a second thought. That's like going from Birmingham to Manchester for lunch, it just would not happen. Take a drive up to Sydney and people just jump in the car and go...3 hour trip. If i drove from Brum to Glasgow it would take a week to plan and you'd plan out the service station stops in advance. It's a decent trip to do. In Australia some people wouldn't even bother putting a pair of shoes on before they went, so much more relaxed.

    Exactly, there is little incentive so why bother. The problems in the UK are structural and self-created. When the Brexit happens and the situation becomes worse, only then will some people realise they were aiming at the wrong target. They voted for a low tax society and get the personal benefits of that. That isn't enough to make for a great country and has seen standards continually fall since Thatcher, except for an investment rise under Bliar that was pretty much vaporised by George Osborne. Mervyn King had it right yesterday. They don't save enough to buy nice things, they don't save for their retirement, they don't save for their healthcare, they complain about everything, they blame others, and they expect somebody to come and save them by the use of magic. It is a needy society wanting to be "looked after". It will take another generation to make the British as responsible and self-accountable as Australians by teaching them to stand on their own two feet and manage their own affairs with more gumption. This will need a major political change to remove the class system, major societal changes to give people incentive, major investment in productivity improvement mechanism, and a good period of self-reflection and devaluation to teach them their true worth in comparison to other countries and workers. Only then can they target improvements, because at the moment they are just wallowing.

    I wouldn't disagree with this, because the systems used in construction in Oz are not as efficient as those in the UK and jobs rarely finish on time. Their sites are not as safe, and the adoption of management systems is pretty poor....they are lax in comparison to the UK, and construction standards are poor compared to Europe in general. However, Aussie workers get paid a much better rate and are richer. You drive up the coast north of Sydney and see the houses owned by the average tradie, it blows your socks off. I don't think they're that bothered about working long hours because they get paid extremely well for their time.

    The obvious joke is that somebody thinks that Austria means Australia, or "Ausralia". Maybe they've never heard of Austria, and this is the decrepid level of understanding that some of these people employ, who nevertheless think they should be listened to.
