Another day, another Brexit scare. It seems that a ‘group of MPs’ – Remainers perhaps? – have produced a study that says hundreds of jobs will be lost in the UK car industry if we leave the single market and customs union.
Let’s examine the possible scenarios in depth, shall we?
(1) We leave with no deal and WTO tariffs come into effect. Because of the drop in the sterling exchange rate we’ve already seen, foreign imported cars are more expensive. Similarly, exported UK cars are cheaper to buy abroad. The tariffs apply equally in both directions.
(2) All car imports and exports stop happening altogether. Really? No, but let’s assume so. As a result UK buyers are stuck with UK produced cars.
In either of these scenarios, UK car production increases, so naturally there will be job losses in the UK motor industry won’t there? Well, obviously not…
Can anyone take this seriously? Is there anyone out there who seriously thinks that VW/Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Renault, Citroen, Dacia, Skoda and all the other Euro car manufacturers are going to tolerate the Brussels bureaucracy killing access to one of their biggest markets?
Of course not. It’s just another Brexit scare to frighten stupid people like you and me…
On this Valentine’s Day, this day of love, this day of harmony and accord, we naturally turn our thoughts towards those amongst us who would seek to deny the basic right of democracy to the people of this country.
It’s the week when we explore, according to the Prime Minister, the ‘Road to Brexit’ and set our vision for the future; a future that many of our elected representatives want to deny us because they know better than us common or garden scum.
So as we’ve had one vote already, it seems only right that we should have another.
Click this link and take part in a poll to tell us who you think is the 2018 answer to Lord Haw Haw. The poll has been open for nominations since the beginning of the month and today is open for a vote on the seven who got the most nominations.
So many traitors, so little democracy – so let’s try and restore a little…
I’m indebted to my friends over at ISAC for running a series of daily Brexit scare stories to frighten all us ill informed people who are so thick we didn’t know what we were voting for and will believe any old bullshit that Project Fear II puts our way.
Here’s a summary of the last few days :
Ex-pat pensioners could return to the UK for free NHS treatment after Brexit and, according to a report by the Nuffield Trust, this could cost the NHS an extra £1billion per year. This figure does rather assume there isn’t a corresponding saving in no longer treating EU nationals in the UK for free and there is no mention of some of the report’s other conclusions, including that Brexit may make another £5billion per year available to the NHS, or the potential benefits in adopting more flexible working practices.
BBC devoted prime news time to the chaos that will ensue if we leave Europol. Now we were in Interpol for fucking years without being in the EU but now it is Europol and leaving the EU will expose us to terror and chaos.
Why the fuck this should be was not explained although I suspect layer upon layer of bureaucracy has taken over rather than coppers etc pooling info.
The remoaner interviewed was of course a Brit employed by Europol. He didn’t mention terrorists crossing borders with impunity but that was no surprise.
So, Brexit scare of the day – uncontrolled crime and terrorism.
We won’t be able to staff the NHS. So called BBC News at 6.
I wonder how non EU countries manage to attract and employ skilled workers? Could it be that they have a points system and priority occupations?
Of course this could never work for Remoaning Britain. Better to admit every fucker from the EU – and of course far beyond thanks to Frau Merkel – without control or checks.
First minister of some tin pot principality called Wales, Carwyn Jones, tells the BBC news website ‘Trade deals with the US etc cannot replace EU trade deals.’
No reason why they should. The deficit is in the EU’s favour so any tariffs will hit them harder than us. Trade will continue in both parties interests.
Fact 1. Wales voted Leave.
Fact 2. This gravy train riding cunt knows better that his constituents.
Fact 3. The Welsh assembly is the biggest collection of tossers and misfits outside of Brussels.
Yes, Project Fear has risen from the grave and boy, does it stink…
Probably not – but there are some hopeful sign that cracks are beginning to appear in the solidarity of the Fourth Reich.
Last week, a report was leaked saying that attempts to punish Britain for having the audacity to want to be an independent nation could backfire on individual EU nations and cause them ‘economic difficulties’ as our contributions fill a dirty great hole in their budget that would have to – surprise, surprise! – be made good by raiding the coffers of the remaining 27.
Poland is concerned about reduced exports ‘especially agricultural and agri-food products’ not to mention the employment prospect for their builders, electricians, plumbers and fruit pickers who frequent the UK market place.
Holland’s fishing sector is very worried about the prospect of losing access to UK waters, with the provinces of Flevoland and Overijssel predicting a potential drop of 60 per cent in fishing business. Ditto the Spanish trawler operators. Hull’s fishermen are understandable quite happy at the prospect of rebuilding their ailing businesses…
In the French region of Hauts-de-France – the birthplace of President Emmanuel Macron – they’re worried a punishment Brexit deal would harm their car manufacturing sector. VW and Mercedes in Germany are equally worried given the large percentage of their sales that are made in the UK.
And while all this is going on, the Germans can’t form a government leaving the poor old Great Germanian project floundering around like a headless chicken.
Indeed, it seems to be dawning on the EU that the failure to strike a deal with Britain is going to hurt them a lot more than it’s going to hurt us. The mystery is why it has taken so long for the penny to drop. We’ve all known for some time that we have a huge trade surplus with the EU and that the imposition of WTO tariffs after Brexit would bring in billions in extra tax revenues. We’ve all known that we are a huge contributor to the EU budget.
So they need a deal. The reality is that frankly we could do quite nicely without one…
Much is said of the fantasies or the leavers, but what about the fantasies of the remainers?
May I remind them that Herr Schultz last year called for a United States of Europe by 2025 – the final realisation of Greater Germania that our fathers and grandfathers fought and died to prevent.
People who believe that the UK cannot prevail as an independent nation are deluded and have no understanding of this nation’s great history and place in the world. They should leave now and go live in the EU if this is what they believe…
