[quote="Heisenberg"]It took you until now
to realise this?
Brexit is what happens when a wholly unprincipled prime minister offers a referendum he has no intention of holding as a tactic in an election he doesn't really want to win, and it accidentally works too well. How anyone ever thought the Conservatives were "on their side" regarding the EU is absolutely beyond me.
CAMERON urged the Czech leader, Vaclav Klaus, through a letter(pre-Lisbon Treaty), NOT to sign the Treaty, thus upsetting Merkel & Sarkozy.
That's why we had the Referendum, it backfired(the letter) & everything follows from that.
Being for ' Brexit ' , but not 'anti-European', I believe he was right\correct to do what he did.
That's because what followed with the surge in migration proved the point, that most European countries, with their peoples, are 'Nimby's ' , in someone else's backyard, just not mine attitude.
That attitude is correct, because, no country's in the EU have the resources, or inclination(with hindsight) to cope with such changes, which are political constructs anyway.
To prove that point, the EU absolutely neglected it's borders in pursuit of 'one-world' fantasies rife in the 1960's, of, 'living-in-peace-&-harmony'(terrorist imports included)NONSENSE.
The massive over-population will haunt us for a hundred years, have you ever thought about how welfare benefits cost will be found to pay for all these migrants when an economic downturn happens, through no relevance of BREXIT?
The IDIOTS that want absolute freedom to go here or there, with no controls whatsoever, are complete head-cases, let them enjoy the imported terrorist, we now have a choice we never have had since the Maastricht Treaty, of either kicking the terrorist out or keeping them out, including their apologist.
Some people think that BREXIT is the cause of the falling £ Pound, 'IT IS NOT', that is a 'LIE', a 'TORY' LIE.
Anyone with a little knowledge of economics will tell you that the TORIES have mis-managed the economy, that the National Debt has TRIPLED under their stewardship of the economy & is costing £1.2 BILLION a week to cover the INTEREST PAYMENTS, CURRENTLY AT HISTORIC LOW LEVELS & THE BANK OF ENGLAND ARE STEALING YOUR MONEY BY NOT RAISING THOSE RATES TO QUELL INFLATION....UNDERSTAND???
NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW LABOUR 'MANAGED' THE ECONOMY WHEN IN POWER, WHICH WAS BETTER THAT TORY HANDLING,BECAUSE WHEN THE MONE RAN OUT, THEY WERE EXPOSED...NOT LIKE THE TORIES...BORROWING £1.4 TRILLION, PAYING INTEREST ON THAT, WHICH COST THE SAME AS THE INCREASED AMOUNT(BORROWED)BEING SPENT EACH WEEK WITH THAT 'BORROWED' MONEY...THE ECONOMICS OF THE NUT-HOUSE.
MAX OUT THE NATION'S 'CREDIT CARD', PRINT MORE MONEY(QE),REDUCE 'REAL' INTEREST RATES,SO THAT THE 'REAL' COST OF BORROWING MONEY WE CANNOT AFFORD TO BORROW,CAN BE BORROWED(SOMEONE'S GOT TO PAY THE MIGRANT BENEFITS)& MAKE OUR CHILDREN,GRAND-CHILDREN PAY FOR IT WITH NO FUTURE STATE PENSION, NHS PRIVATISED BY 'STEALTH'.
In war, those 'running' this country, would(deservedly)be taken out into the yard & shot.
WAKE UP & SMELL THE COFFEE...OH, WAIT A MINUTE...IT'S FAR TOO LATE BRO!!
