BREXIT Hard Or Soft

November 22, 2016

I was taught many years ago by a grisselly old soldier if you ever want to take a position always go in "Hard" !!! That way you take less damage or casualties and you then can go forward at your terms , the mamby pamby euro files love this uncertainty stirring the pot through the left wing media ,basically cutting their own throats . You have seen what is coming out of France and other EU member states that the old guard are being rejected by the voters as the Trump result and Brexit here . People now want to have more of a say in their future ,less control from Brussels as no matter we are all different countries with our heritages ,one lump doesn't doesn't cure all . The surprising question coming to my mind is over the last 2 decades the UK has applied devolution to the Scots,Welsh and Northern Ireland ,here's my question "Why oh Why "  do these countries want to stay in an organisation that is ruled by non elected elite left wing mamby pamby commission ?????  They have control over most of the day to day business of running a country , but if they stayed well anything could happen , I would sooner stay in a country ( the Best ) and then they could always " blame the English". Further to the question "hard or soft" ,media and government have reporting foreign investment from multinational companies the oposit to the remainders blurbs of gloom and doom ,I mean what could happen inflation,unemployment business going tits up ,banks going bust or even the odd country going bust ( Ireland,Spain,Portugal ,Italy Greece) and that was as a member of this club , GO HARD get it done .

Get out completely and instantly, and if they do not like that tough titty to the lot of the continental maniacs, who could not run an egg hunt,never mind telling US what we can do. What REALLY stops the UK from leaving tomorrow, in truth ???? A bit of tatty toilet paper as far as I can see, cos the EU are corrupt and cowardly....

They ,that's the non elected EU leaders ,are at it again with threats , now the threat is for British citizens living/working in the EU will have to buy/pay for EU citizenship and it will be expensive . So trying to get my head around this latest threat , there are a million or so Brits living in the sun in France/Spain ,and over 3 million EU passport holders living/working in the UK . Now if I do the sums ,and what goes around comes around ? ,"am I worried "  No should I be No ,will this threat come to fruition No ,just shows how desperate the  Commission is getting closer to the elections in France /Germany next year .

Their (EU) reactions are typical of people caught up in the tangle, and worse, of having headless chickens running the coop. Their problem is that they do not know what to do for the best, but the news about Turkey and Spain throwing their weight into the mix, the EU must now be terrified that both these countries want to get what they are asking for, namely freedom for Turkey, and separation for Spain into 2 autonomous regions. I feel a bit of "told them so" coming from UK!!! Fireworks soon, and it is passed Bonfire Night!!!!! All it needs now is A.N.Other country to toss its hat into the ring for EXIT, then the EU is in Mire Strasse!!!! European War No 3 on the horizon??? As Santa says "HO HO HO" Christmas coming early??? Yippeeeeee.

I see these peasants in Brussels turned their backs on our PM. Disgusting behaviour. They'll regret this especially with their elections coming up next year. I believe we should trigger article 50 on Christmas Eve and hope they have a good Christmas (I hope not). My views are that the future of the EU is now very much in doubt. In Germany, the right wing party (ARD) is making progress and will cause concerns for the current Chancellor who's future may be in doubt due to the influx of migrants. Of course I'm a Brexiteer and to the lovies and liberals in this country I'm a racist. Mind you they wouldn't say this to my face unless they had a load of money for the legal action. I always thought that we'd all pull together but many of these people we hear on the Biased Broadcasting Corporation telling us we're wrong to vote for leaving the EU and who live in Kensington and Chelsea don't have a bunch of migrants creeping about their streets at night.

Alfie, I think with what has transpired in Berlin, Turkey, and Zurich  within the last 24 hours  that Chancellor, Putin, and Erdogan are all trying to play down what is happening in Europe and Turkey.  Brexit for me cannot come soon enough, I believe that Mrs May should have triggered a general election soon after taking office, that at least would have given her a stronger hand, now however she needs to up her game, I know that Corbyn  is a waste of time and is leading the labour party down road the of self destruction, helped along by his terrorist loving mate McDonnell, assisted by racist ex lover Diane Abbot, who by the way is going to be on the privy council, the mind boggles, There  needs to be a credible opposition to government for it to succeed and quite patently neither is happening here. It should be recognised that the EU will continue to play hardball, we should let them and not show our hand before Brexit, unlike the SNP, Labour so called leaders, Lib Dems Greens etc at least this Government is try to keep some cards up its sleeve. I would love to play poker against those who advocate showing their hand. I think the outcome  of the elections in Europe next year will see a ring of changes. Meanwhile back here on the  news all channels I see that Ms Krankie is at it again on the Scotland will stay in the EU market even if the of UK leaves, and guess what the ever mentioned rider is, Yep, it is another referendum threat, I think she needs to get another bean counter up there. Eng/Sco border to remain the same, freedom of movements to continue also had a Scottish firm making Tartans, saying they would be happy to train up migrants to do the job ( am I missing something here reference unemployment figures in Scotland already). I am a firm believer that charity begins at home, so lets make some large cuts to the foreign aid budget.I don't know where you are living Alfie but when you have some dogs nobody creeps round your immediate area. keep smiling.

Bob, we've got two dogs who are very alert. In addition to this, I have an MG42, MG34, MP40, 2 Mauser K38 and a Panzerfaust. Unfortunately all de-activated. They're hanging on my vehicles. All German army 2nd world war.

One word describes the whole EU and its leaders. That word is JEALOUSY. THEY have not got the guts to stick a stamp on a postcard, never mind being involved in a long drawn out negotiation, especially one which can only end with us, in the UK, winning the argument and getting out of the E U. I still can not see what the crippled EU can do to stop us pulling out NOW. They have not got the guts for battle, so let us now say FINISH and leave tomorrow. THEY need us, but we do not need them, and we would also benefit from the fact that whatever THEY say, we will be free from an object of pity, AKA the EUROPEAN non entity. Play the OUT card now, and send them to total destruction, then we can watch THEM squirm for a change. They dislike us, so tell them now to disappear up a chimney,or better still parachute down an old mineshaft to escape the explosion called EU .....GOODNIGHT....

According to to-days Daily Mail (a true blue paper) it seems that Theresa is starting to toughen her stance a little as she is saying "I'm willing to quit the EU WITHOUT a deal" Good for her I say. It's time we stopped pussy footing around these pompous prats who are trying to rule the roost from Brussels & start telling them how it really is.

Ted, This is what I have been saying we should do for months, and it takes Theresa M to actually propose it to those morons in the EU, she has done the deed and I congratulate her. We have never been at peace with our EU others and I just hope she completes the deed ASAP. WE do not need the EU but Europe need our sense of control, which is sadly lacking in the mob rule that is the EU. Good for TM, a real leader, not a weakling like our previous so called leaders. TM should now start talking to our commonwealth partners, to encourage more contact and contracts with them rather than the moronic mob called the EUand leave the decrepit EU to its own path to oblivion. I think the name EU should really mean "Ever Useless", which would describe them precisely.....Well Done TM.

Ted, Tom, I agree with everything that both of you have said. In fact, that character with the funny hair style from Belgium who seems to be the chief negotiator is so arrogant with the statements that he's making. Let's have a look at Belgium, apart from chocolate and the FN weapons factory, anybody got any idea what they manufacture that we in the Uk need? it's a country made up of two states, the Flemish and the Walloonis (spelling). They hate each other. Another point here. When the 1st Gulf war was taking place, our Royal Artillery were firing off nearly all their 155mm ammo. We asked the Belgiums to lend or sell their stocks to replenish our stocks. (the gun used is a standard 155mm NATO gun which they're equipped with) They refused! We had to replen our stocks from the US army. Mind you, the Belgiums didn't take part in that war or any other. I think these EU countries should remember that we stood alone in 1940 when their armies were throwing away their weapons. My view is go for a hard exit and stuff Blair and all his lovey cronies who want to remain.
