Yes well of course we are all the naive ones who don't know 'jack s..t' about how we are being exploited by all thes illegals swamping our countries, of course we are just being used, the bleeding hearts just being used by people wanting an easy life and to take our jobs off us

You wonder why we only shut the last of our five freeports in 2012 ?  Did you even know that we had them SImmo?  This is just another fairy story aimed at you.

Perhaps this will explain why, from the people who should actually benefit from this but don't think they will.

You really need to listen more.  A Freeport under EU controls are not really "Free" ports.

I know it's difficult but do try to keep up.😂

Stop trying to be patronising, you haven't got the brains. 

Instead of copying and pasting then, why not tell us what benefits you intend to see from a "freeport", in your own words?  Just because i don't think you really read what you post.

Typical personal insults when put on the spot. Do you actually know the difference between the proposed freeports and you "free" ports YOU referred to.

I'll wait politely. 😘

I'll list the realities

Less taxation collected by the treasurer 

Established Businesses move to freeports to pay less tax so creating unemployment in the areas they leave

Freeports require giant inputs from the taxpayer for infrastructure, roads, rail etc which all has to be paid for by the taxpayer which the freeport users make little or no contribution to.

Still seem like a good idea???

you are getting desperate, you have bigger issues back in ROI , plans to increase your carbon tax to achieve nothing except put people into poverty. How much more will ROI have to cough up to eu to keep the project going ?

And so it came to pass

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/feb/14/uk-holds-preliminary-discussions-with-china-over-building-hs2

I pointed out that the UK didn't have the industrial capacity and lo.

They should have brought China in from day one. Would have saved a fortune.

They can build the Celtic bridge too.

Boris strategy seems to be aimed at courting China. He chose China over the USA and the EU. 

I'm guessing he is looking at some sort of services for goods type trade agreement. Which sort of makes sense.

Brexit presents opportunity to ban supertrawlers from UK waters, environmental groups say

 

‘Our government likes to boast about its credentials as a global oceans champion, but what about protecting our seas here at home?’ ask campaigners

I don’t think they bother with coastal waters, they fish in international waters depleting stocks where there are no controls.

These are the modern day whaler equivalents, floating factory ships employing cheap labour, freezing fish at sea, moving to where ever migrating fish move and owned behind opaque shell companies

Just wondered if any of those " remainers" on this message are still confident for the future of the e.u ?

Italy was financially on the brink , billions in debt ,before the lockdown 

Spain wasn't much better 

Two of my favourite countries are on the brink .

This could start the financial contagion within the eurozone 

And once it starts to fall , it will so , very quickly .

Now , if they had kept the borders , a looser arrangement ,and stopped this rush to financial integration , the e.u may have rode out the storm .

I love europe ,but it's not going to end well

You do realise 1000's are going to die across Europe and because of the incompetence of our nationalist govt who cannot concieve that the UK will be  impacted by this virus there will be 1000's of deaths here.

This is going to go on for months and at the end of it the world as we have known it will be changed beyond all recognition.

Boris asking JCB to start manufacturing ventilators is a joke.

What a clown.

Do you realize that more people die of TB around the world in one hour than have died from this virus yet no one cares or thinks of these people because TB is old news and does not affect first world countries, we get a virus that can effect first world countries and us and we panic. No one cares about the millions dying every year from TB
