Could never work out the farmers mentality on this. This was always an inevitable consequence of Brexit. Also the farmers asking the day after what about our EU grants and what about our EU seasonal workforce. Don’t vote to leave the EU then. Chlorinated Turkey’s voting for Xmas.
Cornwall too, the very day after the result was announced wanting assurance from Government that it will have the same amount of money it gets from the EU ring fenced by UK Gov’t.

I wish I could tell them to f**k off! They weighed up the pros and cons, they decided to go along with ‘sovereignty’ (which is an absolute joke now that we currently find ourselves in a time when so many are not liking the UK Government enacting laws by itself with regards to Covid) and blue passports, and somehow thought that the likes of Farage and J R-M actually cared about them!

Not to mention maggots in orange juice.

Farmers did vote for this though (53%), and the ERG’s own expert Patrick Minford, who JR-M lauds, did state that leaving the EU would result in the end of farming and manufacturing in this country.

Farming down, manufacturing to go...
Yeah but fishing mate, we've saved fishing and it's miniscule contribution to GDP

Thought those monobrowed roasters wanted independence?

Sources close to No.10 say Boris is about to throw the towel in on the easiest deal in the history of the world.

Hate to say I told you so but I did. Can’t believe anyone took anything any of the chancers campaigning for Brexit said seriously. You’ve all been well and truly duped. French cheese and German cars my arse.

Fuck. Reading things like that just bring me back to how unfathomably stupid this entire endeavour is, and how still to this day not one person has stood up a sensible argument for it.

So many people are going to lose their job over the next six months. And we have a Fucking clown and a Thatcherite in charge. Hold onto your hats folks.

It’s probably the most crucial period for the country that we’ll see in our lifetime and look who’s in charge...

The Torys new trick is to talk about an Australian type deal. Australia dont have a deal with the EU, it just sounds better than no deal and they hope people won't notice.

This annoys me. The scam here is clear as day, they’re stirring up the no deal shite so any old crap they pull out is seen as a win. I wish the media wouldn’t fall for it every single time. The rumours I’ve seen of what a “slightly less than no deal deal” are are fucking terrifying and I can already see opposition and media going mental over no deal before this weak sauce is heralded as a great success.

The first two or three times they pull this fair enough, but to still be falling for it now is ridiculous.

Some of us stated on this thread years ago that this was the stance of the German BDI but we were talking bollocks apparently and the German car manufacturers were going to save us.
I'd like t think it'd puncture our balloon, shake iur hubris but... they'll just blame Covid and it'll be lapped up!

Queuing at passport control? Project fear init.
Although the Sun quick to blame the EU. WE KNOW WHAT WE VOTED FOR! OUT MEANS OUT! Etc.
Want tighter immigration controls, which invariably means longer queues for foreigners visiting here. But how dare those foreigners have the temerity to impose similar controls on us! It's an outrage! A British passport isn't there to be shown to some Johnny Foreigner - it's to bat him out the way if he dare try and find out why we're visiting whatever God-forsaken hole they live in.

Some reports around tonight that Boris is waiting on the result of the US election before deciding deal or no deal Brexit. #takingbackcontrol
Trump is going to see us up like a kipper if he gets back in and with Boris’ blessing.

Saw a realy interesting article about the US election and how the outcome will shape what happens in UK going forward.
