    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    The BBC had an interview with a Tory MP who was pro-Mrs May's deal which he then described as "the least worst option". How utterly depressing.

    This is starting to become a bit like me asking Jennifer Lopez out on a date. No means No.

    Bring Back Abbott ?

    To be fair, it's hard to work out which is more embarrassing, British politics or Australian. It's close, I'd probably still say Australian regardless of Brexit., close though.
  4. Sounds like a good idea.

    Raab supports the deal now. Tells you all you need to know about these people you think are putting the country first. Charlatans. He quit because of that deal!!!!

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    So, seeing as some of those alternate suggestions have attracted more votes than Mrs May's plan, are they not the ones to pursue? Why is her less popular plan back as option 1? Should add, disgrace to see Tories backing her deal now that she's resigning. Talk about 'up the party/stuff the country'. They're a disgrace.

    PRs who never bother to take out citizenship

    To be fair, I couldn't be arsed, the form is too big. Plus, what do I get out of it? The chance to vote for a new PM every 6 weeks? Whoopee.

    So, you're getting all this stuff from YouTube? Sounds about right. Are you on flat Earth websites as well? I'm not a doctor but, if I was, I'd prescribe a nice lie down in a darkened room. For a couple of years or so.

    Gets funnier by the day this. Mrs May is history now, MPs take control. Get your 2nd referendum pen handy!!

    Total and utter humiliation. Still, at least she's used to it.

    Property Downturn- has it affected you?

    My brother-in-law was looking at one in Shorehaven Alkimos and building on that site has ground to a halt. It's a big, coastal estate, I expect it will be a building site for decades. Our estate agent tells us that buyer numbers are very low now and people aren't looking to live in the extremities any more. I'm sure he told me that 5 years ago 1400 families a month were moving to Perth from the UK and it is now less than 100 per month.

    Property Downturn- has it affected you?

    Not sure. We have just sold for less than we bought for in 2010 and the estate agent tells me, by and large and especially for our area, values are at pre-2008.
  14. I've encountered the resistance you mention. It is understandable though, look at it from their perspective; it costs a fortune to get here, it costs a fortune when you get here, you're staying with rellies so it doesn't feel like a holiday anyway, after a couple of times it's all very samey and you could have about 4 European holidays for the same cost. Hard to blame anyone not being that keen after a couple of trips. Or at least thinking twice.

    Property Downturn- has it affected you?

    We've just sold in Perth northern suburbs and taken probably 15% less than we could have got at peak. They are trying to talk the slump around on the news but it's just bluff, it's definitely on-going. I'd expect house prices to keep falling for another couple of years at least. And, if that's the only economic downturn in that time, I'll be surprised.
