  1. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/brexit-economy-sterling-currency-investment-cost-impact-business-financial-banks-insurance-retail-a7695486.html Just to be getting on with.
  2. I don't think anyone thinks the EU is the perfect union. Some of us just think that on balance we are better off in than out. If anything it's brexiteers who seem to think we're headed for utopia despite all the evidence to the contrary.
  3. As mentioned the weak pound helps exports and we haven't actually left the EU yet so our trading conditions have not been affected.
  4. So do you think farmers will get more or less after 2020? Reporting concerns about what could happen post Brexit is not nessesarily scaremongering, it's just not what brexiteers want to hear.
  5. Farm subsidies equate to about £3 billion a year. I very much doubt Saudi princes are receiving the bulk of that. I'm sure the system needs reform but if Micheal Gove has anything to do with it I'll bet the average farmer will end up losing out. EU farmers will still be getting their subsidies of course which will make it a little harder for UK farmers to compete.
  6. Idle should be 950rpm. Check TPS if it's high.
  7. Having the wattage of my kettle limited just doesn't bother me that much, as long as it still boils water what's the problem? EU regulations seem to be fairly sensible on the whole and we agreed to the implementation of the vast majority of them as far as I can tell. It looks like we will still have to comply with them post Brexit as well if we want to buy or sell anything from/to the EU. I really don't get why they are held up as a reason we have to leave.
  8. So will EU drivers drop their loads at the border and then uk trucks will distribute the goods?
  9. Do you think that will all change once we are out then? Genuine question as I don't know how it all works with goods coming from Europe.
  10. It's hideous. No wonder there are only 2 of them.
  11. Remainers see Brexit as a total disaster, you can't expect them to back it. .
  12. Nothing in my inbox.
  13. If you want to sell the one you've got then please PM me as I've been looking for one for a while.
  14. My point was that people talk about the EU as if we weren't part of it. I understand why people want to leave and of course they are all perfectly entitled to their opinion. I believe, despite its failings - of which there are many, that we would still be better off in than out, I understand that that is a (just) minority view.
  15. I don't really understand the concept of the EU being some distant evil body trying to ruin us. The EU is basically us the French and the Germans working for mutual self interest (there are a few others obviously but we three are the main players). We have been at the heart of all the decisions made over the last 40 years and are, in effect a large part of the EU.
