Ah, yes. The "won't someone think of the children?" approach. If only we'd cared as much about the sectoral, societal and constitutional damage our membership has inflicted over the years.

1. If the EU wish to further politicise trade by making the point of preventing export of goods to the UK (not even sure how they could do that), then there's not a lot we can do other than... let's see: seek alternative suppliers that are not bound to the political whims of a supposed "trade union" with delusions of superstatehood. I don't see any signals from the UK that they will block imports from the EU.

2. If a business has not been working on contingencies for this eventuality since the 2016 referendum vote, and will be "f*cked overnight", I would suggest they aren't particularly robust as a business, and a competitor capable of acting on non-glacial timescales would be rightly better off in competition against them.

3. I would rather not put a price on the ability of the UK to conduct our own affairs without econding into law the interference, legal oversight and malicious agenda from an economic competitor.

This is all entirely academic though. Depressingly, it's just a ruse. You'll have your beloved deal, and we'll be subject to all manner of EU control mechanisms that the Canadians, South Koreans or Japanese would never even dream of accepting.

The difference being that none of those countries have a border with the EU, or a tunnel running under the sea connecting them to the EU, or thousands of lorries which make the journey across from the EU every day carrying goods and supplies.

From an outsider perspective (I didn't vote in the referendum), seeing the Tories so brazenly disregard the CBI is incredible. I know many crazy things are happening right now, but never in my lifetime did I imagine that the party of business would act so evidently against the interests of businesses.

40% of our laws are going to disappear overnight. The opportunities for exploitation and corruption are going to be extraordinary. I think the most comparable example would be post-Soviet Russia, and I don't think it's beyond the realms to imagine that the next few years will be similar to that in this country.

 


If punk ever happened I'd be preaching the law, instead of listenin to Lydon lecture BBC4

If you didnt vote then why are you bothered.
You didnt care back then but now you do.
Strange as apathy is probably why you are on here telling brexiteers how wrong they are/were.
An extra half a million like you actually voting might well have swung the result the way you wanted it to go. Never mind though I'm sure you will vote in three years.

Maybe I'm not. I mean I'm a communist really so the idea you'd piss off the CBI is a good thing to me. I'm just surprised so many of you have become so radical really.

Wanting to have a bit more self control over national matters is radical. How is the planet zog?

Wasnít the CBI one of the Organizations that warned that, if we voted to leave, the sky would immediately fall in, along with that idiot Carney

Is anyone going to take seriously the opinions of someone, whose judgement is such, that he says, 'I'm a communist really'?

Be glad when this is all over.

Iím a working class lad, Brexit voter. The Mrs is from the muddle classes and remainer.

Have had many an argument over this. All her middle class w@nker friends are remainers too. Iíve actually banned one couple from coming round the house.

f***ing Champaign socialists. All my mates are grafters who have had to compete for years with continued supply of non stop cheap labour forcing down their earnings. Middle classes donít see this as they have not been affected in such a way.

Itís the working classes who have been f@cked up the ass by an open door immigration policy

I keep sayings lets import mass numbers of politicians, teachers, actors and anyone in the public services and drop their salaries of course. Then we'll see how many Remainers there are.
