Ridiculous to the sublime threa

November 18, 2017

Whats got Riley on his soap box now ,well I'll tell you . Brexit ,Brexit,Brexit!!!!! . Europe has never had it so good ,why ??? Well we all being ex-serving  members of our Armed Forces ,we've seen first hand either in person or reading our history of the last century. We as a country honour OUR FALLEN defending not only OUR country but WORLD ( including Europe) against despot dictatorship who would grind us into the ground. Now this Europe wants us ,no demands that we pay them a ransom so we can become a SOVEREIGN NATION again ,before they'll allow us to talk ,let alone trade with them . Now just after REMEMBERING as a nation FALLEN of not ONE but TWO WARS stopping EUROPE ( and the world) from a HOLOCAUST . Why as they say in Germany bring up the WAR ( not one but feckin two)  ,we have payed the bill over and over again ,either with our citizens and our monies. We also spent half a century sitting in B.A.O.R keeping them safe from the Comunist threat of Russia,places like Detmold,Herford,Munster,Osnabruck and Hohne or sitting in/on the Fulda Gap ,Soltau in training. So now after 40 years the British people have decided to be a  SOVEREIGN NATION again doing our OWN thing ,remember that in the past without us doing that, that EUROPE let alone the WORLD would living under dictatorships . So now these EUROPEANS want us to PAY for the privilege for buying German cars,French wine/ food/ cars ,Italian cars/wine or Spanish holidays,and believe it or not British civil planes from flying over to their cities,and that's on top of having 3/4 million of their citizens living in the United Kingdom. As you have read I'm NOT happy with the way these so called European negotiators are treating us ,no matter what May/Davis offers they're not accepting it ,they just want MONEY,that's before they talk . Well EUROPE enough is enough!!! March 2019 we are gone from your club and any British Government that pays you anything will be voted out very quickly. I might be babbling,but after last weekend talking to old friends who like me voted for the EEC back in 1974 for trade ,not for EU monopoly of un- elected politicians who are being paid millions instead of our citizens schools,hospitals,infrastructure etc etc, No ,if they don't want us to play ,we will take our money and trade to the rest of the world ,NO DEAL is so much better than a BAD DEAL,putting it succinctly FECK OFF

Totally agree Bob - Tusker & Barnier whinge about lack of progress, yet seem hell bent on putting obstacles in the way of realistic negotiations. They seem to want to dictate over the Irish border outcome - who are they to tell us how to secure OUR border ? Ireland voted to join ( & remain) in the EU, voted to use the Euro as their currency & so in my opinion have no rights to expect preferential treatment from the UK. If that border isn't controlled it will surely become an open gateway for immigrants from other countries to continue their path onto the mainland, the very problem our exit from the EU is meant to prevent. Maybe Ireland should also exit the EU, the problem could be sorted then !?! I reckon the intransigence of the EU will create a No Deal situation, something I'm not averse to - the money saved by not kowtowing to the EU's ridiculous financial demands will tide us over admirably until we get our own trade deals in place, & despite the doom n gloom merchants, France and Germany will still want desperately to sell us their cars, knowing that punitive trade tariffs will stifle their sales dramatically. Japan & South Korea will steal their sales if they do, with the excellent quality of their cars these days meaning British buyers would be lost forever to both the Germans and French, something they'll know and will want to avoid at all costs. So EU , bring it on, we'll prove the British bulldog spirit is alive & kicking, ready to take you on, and WIN, again ! John (JKW)
