    Default Brexit - again

    Morning all . It never ceases to amaze me the number of posts on FB decrying Brexit - Leeds for Europe , rejoin the EU etc,etc.

    The latest from these appalling people in Brussels and unfortunatly supported by our own coalition government in Den Haag is a law
    thought up in Brussels and about to be passed into law by our own people is the adjustment of the Dutch pension system.
    Sounds great but what it actually means is that our pensions will be reduced so that the extra money can be distributed to those European countries
    having a weak pension system - mostly the southern lands.

    A very sad state of affairs and the UK should be very glad of Brexit.

    Ah, the old hand out again, with all the catches that go with it. Best thing we ever did to get out.

    There is a very small chance of that happening if we had remained. There is an even larger chance of us once again giving more into the coffers of the EEC than we got back. It is irrelevant anyway as we are out of the whole mess and long may it stay that way.

    The only reason Brexit is not a raving success, is due to the remainer fatcats and their political tools doing everything possible to thwart it. The multinationals are the ones causing any import/export problems simply because they can and will, until they can get Brexit reversed.
    "The beatings will continue until morale improves". The EU is their baby and they will decide who's in or out of it.

    It always amazes me how everything is blamed on Brexit.
    It also amazes how many of the remainders quote the six years since we left has been a total failure.
    They fail to mention we voted leave in 2016 and left in 2019.

    One of the promises of Brexit was to take back control of our borders. That seems to be working out well.
    One think you cannot blame Brexit on is this debacale.

    Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng's mini-budget cost Britain an eye-watering 74billion, the head of the UK's debt management office has said. Robert Stheeman, who is in charge of overseeing the UK's 2.1trillion Government bond market, echoed recent comments from the Bank of England that his office was not fully briefed before the former PM and the ex-Chancellor's economic blueprint was unveiled last month sparking chaos with its unfunded tax cuts.
    Must be true as it is a quote from the Daily Express.

    They also forget that remainers from all parties spent the next few years trying to make sure it did not work.

    I think once the vote was over, all MP's whether for or against, should have been made to make the best of it.

    The Liberal Democrats stated that they would overturn the decision if they were in power. I don't call that democratic.

    They were coming over from France when we were in the EU,and we still could not send them back, so that had nothing to do with Brexit. I would just love to hear how the labour party intend protecting our borders, never heard any of them with an idea, but just keep banging the old fog gong. The truth is that all the time the Frogs sit back and let it happen we are powerless, why, because we still have to abide by the European court of human rights. We should ditch that part of the agreement, and then we can cure the problem.
