    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas to all
  2. Not saying, the car hasn't been converted to a 6-speed gearbox In several articles and an unofficial ALPINA book. The B10 3.3 has been misreported as having 6 forward gears and not 5. The term dealer copy and paste from an article comes to mind
  3. I think kayser540 has confirmed my earlier point That's borderline patronising (as you said it twice consecutively) The more you say something doesn't mean it is true. Likewise when I have said several times the benefits will take some time to appear
  4. So you are unaware of this then. This is also a remain newspaper Brexit has given competitive edge on car battery tariffs, says Nissan chief | Nissan | The Guardian
  5. Just pointing out a manufacturing benefit. As you asked several times
  6. The post office has publicly admitted there is a backlog due to the pandemic. clearly lost, please explain that assumption? So trucks were not delayed due to the pandemic throughout Christmas week?
  7. I disagree. Nissan are embracing Brexit
  8. It's basic Economics. It's called surplus of labour. I would think that every example of a surplus of labour in non-pandemic/peacetime, will show wages do drop when there is a surplus of labour. Could be one of the few things Economist will agree on
  9. Yes correct but a lot of the block trusted the EU for them to do the deal. I don't know the answer to this, but did Germany knew the block was making a mess of it, hence thought we will be better and use the emergency powers/approval instead? Again don't know the answer to this. Would the EU have been in a better position to lie about AstraZeneca, stop further use of the vaccine, after the emergency approval was removed? The Government was criticised a lot for not working collectively with an EU vaccine deal. As we have a few James O'Brien's fans (video and quotes) on here. Even he admitted last week, that he was wrong on this one
  10. Yes agree. If we assume the boots were ordered on 26 December 2020. Then 2 days to arrive, they would have been delivered on or before 31 December 2020. I'm waiting for an eBay parcel that was posted at a post office, less than 10 miles from where I live, since 21 January 2021. The tracker yesterday was showing, it is still at the post office (today it will not give me any information, hopefully it will arrive today). Is this due to Brexit?
  11. The major benefit is covid vaccine. The issue AstraZeneca which Macron and Ursula von der Leyen are referring to is a misprint of a German newspaper article. I cannot remember the precise details. It was something like 8 people who were tested above 65 had the vaccine in a test (there was no negativity with that test) As Macron cannot provide enough vaccines he lied about AstraZeneca with Ursula von der Leyen last night. When they both said yesterday it is not effective for above 65 years old people. As they pushed the big red button last week with trade. The EU admitted that AstraZeneca contract is fair and they made a big mistake. To me this shows that the EU are just bullies. I have always said it will take some time for the benefits to appear and for the disruptions to stop. It has only just been over a month.
  12. At the time when that was written. The boots would have been ordered around 24 December 2020. We were still in the EU. The delay unlikely to have been caused by Brexit
  13. At the end of last year or at the start of this year. A bill was passed so the Brexit UK negotiation department or team didn't need explain themselves in public. Therefore nothing new will be said until October I guess. We are just going through the motions of transition. However you made the goal to be wide open, in my opinion, for the thread to turn nasty by unnecessary linking the two No. One member insults everyone with a different view to them. The other defends their opinion and others, and then uses the same tone as them. It is a subtle difference, but it is a difference! This is why on the forum which I administer. I have a general section but it is for the forum subject which doesn't fit into any other heading.
  14. You started this rot of a thread Duncan. Since when has it been a forum rule to contribute elsewhere on the forum? People do agree with Karl. I don't have the time or the energy to go over dead ground. Who else will put our side of the argument on here? However when we do all what we get is constant contemptuous and mocking Why can't someone who voted Brexit be annoyed with this Government? There are parallels but you interlinked them. As a moderator and a member of 15 years. You knew where this thread will lead to. A serious lack of judgment. This forum has gone backwards to 2016 and the 2017 General election. This topic is two separate threads With regards to some of the NHS comments: I know for a fact the NHS management were told during the Brexit vote to tell staff to remain. A friend of mine who is an accountant moans all the time about the waste in the NHS. I therefore don't expect a NHS manager to think any differently about Brexit. I am too busy doing charity work to care if someone replies to my post with spiteful and snide comments, to force me to reply.
