    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    https://news.sky.com/story/general-election-farage-claims-no-10-offered-brexit-party-candidates-jobs-to-stand-down-11861383 This is a real toughie. How can you tell who is lying in an argument between two liars? Does it really matter, when they are arguing over a lie, and the people voting for them seem to take masochistic pleasure in being lied to anyway? Is this even newsworthy?

    I'm glad you like that as well Simmo! Maybe you're developing some useful maturity at long last, still time to redeem yourself

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I'm surprised you agree with that, you're normally a serial complainer. Ironic isn't it......an EU Parliament blocking a candidate by voting, perfectly democratic. When the UK Parliament does it some of their citizens call the politicians traitors. Which one is falling apart at the seams?

    https://www.bbc.com/news/business-50419130 I guess this is one for Bunbury to carry on his shoulders, as he promised.

    Undecided about moving back to Oz after 5 years in the UK

    I know a few Brits around your age who've moved from Canberra and Sydney to new northern Gold Coast suburbs, where they're building a lot of new communities at more reasonable prices (4 bed - $700k?). Some of these areas have social problems with hoons, but not on the scale of the UK. Just a case of picking the right part of town. At your age, you're probably able to choose a different environment than some of the younger families who need to be right next to everything....maybe far enough away so you don't see them, maybe even a townhouse nearer to the GC beaches and then you get the easier traffic flow both morning and afternoon ? As a teacher at 52, you could probably expect a longer career than in the UK with better comparative pay and conditions? My dad was a teacher they started trying to force him out at 54 and he'd reached the top of the pay grade in the UK. Not that sort of pressure in Australia yet.

    British Steel to be sold to China

    The irony is that China has been dumping cheap steel for years driving UK companies out of business, now they're picking up the pieces for next to nothing. The double irony is that when the EU tried to put an anti-dumping tariff on Chinese steel to stop them flooding Europe with cheap steel at below cost price.......guess which country blocked it? Yup.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    This is just confused garbage. You cannot answer any of your own questions, you're having a rant. You have a British government that has spent 10 years creaming in money and putting it offshore. You often quote that we are "the worlds 5th largest economy"? So where is the money going? You tell us where it is? Can you blame that on Labour...what kind of mind? The money has gone to shareholders, of which you probably don't have enough money to be one. This is the politics you like. You answer your own question....where has it gone? Why do you think Bishop Auckland, in your opinion, looks like Beirut? Why do you think we have no industry, based on what people like you expect to earn but are not productive enough to earn? Which political party smashed people like you forever, and is now hoping you vote for them based on a bribe after kicking you for 10 years? Are you silly enough to fall for this? 8 billion is nothing, you have American trying to spend over 20 trillion on healthcare for the poorest. You need to actually open your eyes and stop being influenced by this nationalist propaganda that will make you look eternally silly. You are just angry, jealous, and wrong. Be a bit more righteous and less self-righteous.

    And that is why you will always be poor and uninformed. How many times can you be fooled? Ten, a hundred, a thousand? You have a Government in power for 10 years who have deliberately caused the issues you are complaining about, because they are ideologically opposed to the very things you say you want for yourself. You vote for tax cuts, you get the absolute garbage that you currently have. But you prefer to blame a party that isn't in power, and stick with the current ones? Cloud cuckoo land, you're a gift from heaven for the upper class. A turkey that will always vote for Christmas. The evidence is in front of your eyes and you will never, ever see it.

    Elon Musk cites Brexit as a reason for basing his new factory in Germany. Does this now count as German car industry? https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/tesla/108395/tesla-gigafactory-europe-to-be-built-in-germany-not-uk-as-elon-musk-blames-brexit

    Thanks for your answer. So that's you and Simmo we can put down as a "can't answer" the question of "“What opportunities might you be planning to capitalise on from Brexit?” Simmo = X Kungustu = X Just Rallyman and Bunbury to go.

    What ! Him? Never. Are you saying he has that particular moderator on speed dial when he can't fight the battles he starts, and will do anything to avoid a debate and then complain? I can see why they put him on pre-mod if that's the case. Anyway, football has kicked off. Gnight

    That's better.. Pledge is one syllable, but you've gone off topic with your subject. Put the correct subject back and you're making progress. Then put them both together. Does that help a little?

    We're just trying to help you mate, anybody can see that from the amount of times you've asked us to help you. We're not saying it's your fault you can't understand a video. How can we help you, you explain what you need?

    It is to him, way over his head. I'm struggling to think of a way to help. You've used words, there is a video explaining it....and he just can't grasp it. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be?
