I think leaving the EU was part of the Russian plans to de-stabilize Europe, Nato and such. I woudl suspect the EU needs revisions but come on. It is sure not going to help the Ruby and Football Unions.

UR_Fantazee replies on 1/24/2019 9:56 am:
No, it was down to the Tory party and misguided / ignorant / idiotic *(delete as applicable) English who voted to stick two fingers up to the rest of Europe and voted to LEAVE without thinking through the ramifications of such a suicidal action.

Unfortunately, even though Scotland as a whole overwhelmingly voted to REMAIN, we are having to suffer the consequences of the fuckwits in charge in Westminster.

Einstein said that if you can't explain something simply you don't know it well enough. In my opinion no one knows time or Brexit well enough to explain it. Well done for trying though !

I've been to Dunstable. I remember the motel... Slightly...

I have twigs in my house but it isn't full... yet.

I would like more of that other thing I like.

I've been to Paradise, but I've never been to Dunstable..... the twigs will be handy to light fires when the lights go out and I never refuse more of the other...…. xx

Far be it from me to tell Britains whats best for them but in my opinion the UK would be better served if it stops coddling the EU and allows it citizens to regain economc and political sovernitrie without being paralyzed by ridiculous immgration and politically correct nonsense that places foreigners above its tax paying populace.

UR_Fantazee replies on 1/24/2019 10:18 am:
Well if Scotland was an independent nation...…… but that's another argument.

We Scots quite like free movement of people and labour across our borders from other EU nations. Our NHS would grind to a halt if all the "foreign" doctors, nurses, ancillary staff were forced to leave.

The "politically correct" issue is yet another argument again - but doesn't really have its roots based with pleasing other Europeans.

The "if you don't like our culture, fuck off back to your own country" argument is usually directed to people from much warmer countries and more radical religions.

I have to admit, at Christmas time, I'll always wish someone "Happy Christmas" rather than "Happy Holidays". They're in our country, any offence taken is their problem, not mine.

No boarders has damaged European cultures with uncontrolled immigration from middle eastern countries. These people in large measure do not intend to adopt the historic cultures that attract for example US tourists. Go England to say enough is enough and we will not be ruled by the policies that come out of Belgium.

UR_Fantazee replies on 1/24/2019 10:26 am:
Yeah - it's ENGLAND'S voters who decided to leave. SCOTLAND didn't. We want to stay!

I don't give a damn about my reputation
I never said I wanted to improve my station
And I'm always feeling good when I'm having fun
And I don't have to please no one
And I don't give a damn about my bad reputation
Oh no
Not me
Whoa no
Not me

You can't escape the wrath of my heart...

So crawl back to the EU with your tail between your legs, or walk tall and proud into oblivion. Brexit is like putting a smashed atom back together again. Now the Brits look like Looney Tunes. Nuts! That Boris Johnson strikes me as being nuts. The Scots are the sane ones. They just ooze commonsense. They're oozing Scotsmen and Women ! I meet Poms in pubs here. They say lovely country but I don't think much of Aussies though. I say you just came out here to escape Brexit. Your absolutely right mate , they reply and sulk into their beer. It's like a tide of depressed Poms arriving here.

It’s been an eye opener to move from a London borough where 75% voted to remain to Brexit heartland 😳. It’s been interesting to hear some of their views here.

It was all to gain control... Don’t you get it? (I’m not sure I do )

UR_Fantazee replies on 1/26/2019 10:48 am:
Come to Scotland where the whole country voted to remain. I just watch the news - everyone getting out. This week alone, Sony have said they're moving their European HQ out of the UK, Dyson are moving to Singapore and even the BBC are having to move their International HQ to the continent because they'll lose their European Broadcasting Licence if they're not based in an EU country.

We'll have nothing left to control.

Shona from where I sit observing, I see an EU that has got out of hand and where other countries have as much or even more say over the UK than the relevant coutries own citizens. I saw this coming 30 odd years ago, and I have been watching it ever since erode what was once great about the UK. Your farmers are at a disadvantage, your laws and immigration are directed by others outside your boarders, and your currency is valued by others, NOT your own Federal Bank. The initial idea of the EU, or EEC as it first started out if my memory is right, have gone way past what was first thought a good thing, but even back then, the French got better farming considerations that UK farmers.

Now you couple all of that with what has happened over the last 3 years with the flood of people seeking a better life from shithole countries further south, NO even further south that Spain, then THEY will be able to walk in to the UK and become squatters and in no time take over the whole of the British Isles, and there will be fuck all that can be done, EXCEPT have a civil war, and those bastards just walked out of their own country because of one, that and famine.

Now all of this is just as I see it from a distance, not living within it, but IMHO if I was a resident of the UK, I would have been voting to leave. I am happy to discuss this further, and more than happy to be proven wrong, if you have a legitimate arguement.

UR_Fantazee replies on 1/26/2019 11:05 am:
It was just meant to be a light-hearted post with no political or economic intent. I'm not going to get into an argument or try and persuade anyone to change their views.

From my perspective it comes down the fact that if Scotland was an independent country, we wouldn't have had a referendum in the first place. Scotland wants to stay in the EU.

We're being dragged out on the back of Westminster's idiocy. They only agreed to a referendum because they were so sure that the outcome would be Remain.

They didn't expect or prepare for the xenophobic backlash from the majority of England and Wales who voted Leave. They had no plan B and have been trying to save face ever since.

The only other thing I'll say on the matter is the latest research presents a stark picture of the economic shock a bad deal/no deal will have on Scotland – warning it will leave every Scot worse off by £2,300 a year, wipe out 80,000 jobs, and damage growth and business opportunities for decades.

If Donald want's to build a wall somewhere, he can come here and rebuild Hadrian's for us as far as I'm concerned.

I'm done.

Juts a very quick note Shona to say that I as a 65 year-old English bloke am totally ashamed that many of my 'peer' group (and I use the term lightly) chose to vote leave because they fell for the hype, bullshit and downright lies of those who aligned themselves to the Fascist Farage brigade. Even today with all that we now know of the catastrophe that a no-deal Brexit will bring as detailed by the Bank of England, BAE, and others, notwithstanding twat Dyson who support Brexit and then fucks right off to Singapore! Some people seem to think we were better off in the 70's before teh common market. We were not! There was 10% unemployment, The National Front fascists on the street, massive industrial strife and dispute, and of course terrorism on the street of all the UK nations which dwarfed anything more recently jihady! Joining Europe was a breath of fresh air to the UK, and has contributed to a successful economy ever since. I get incandescent with rage at the Rees-Mogs and Boris' of this world who live in some alternative universe where they think teh British Empire was something to be proud and want to be returned. The UK is a small island nation on the edge of Europe which will be far worse off on its own than with the culture, security, peace, support and economic stability that comes from being part of a group of 28. There are many things wrong with the EU but change from within is the only option. Leaving and aligning with the Trumps, Erdogans and Dutertes of this world will make those who died in WW2 fighting fascism turn in their graves. Anyway, enough of doom and gloom - I feel like spanking my sun now! Stay happy all, and don't believe the Russian bots!

UR_Fantazee replies on 1/29/2019 11:45 am:
Hey. It's really good to find someone on here who, not only agrees with me that we shouldn't leave, but puts their point of view so completely and forcefully. I was beginning to feel a little isolated here!

Along with the supply, financial, customs & border issues (to name but a few) the govermnent is saying today that the reciprocal medical arrangements between the UK and EU will cease on March 29th - so the couple of hundred thousand or so "ex-pats" in Spain etc will have to pay for their medical treatment. Given that most of them are OAP age, that's a lot of cash their going to have to find too if they fall ill.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. xx

Indeed Shona - just another unintended outcome of a referendum which should never have been called. Fucking tories! Don't get me started.190,000 pensioners. Glad you used quotes there. I hate the term 'ex-pat', preferring to call them what they are; they're economic migrants (left for a better life and a one euro pint in Benidorm) from the UK to the EU. And if there is no agreement and a 'hard' twatting Brexit, may all choose to return to 'blighty' to be treated. That won't be a strain on the NHS then! lol. Hopefully even a majority of the English electorate must now see the flaws in every type of Brexit. Touching my wood there! It really is now time that we had a second referendum. Better together!

UR_Fantazee replies on 2/2/2019 4:04 am:
Best not go down the "Better Together" route. That was the slogan that accompanied the lies and propaganda used by the government to head off the Scottish Independence referendum - and there are an awful lot of Scots who now realise the mistake they made by believing them.

There was someone on the radio the other day who compared Brexit to being continually "flashed" in the park by a stranger when she went out for a run.

She'd reached the point where she didn't care anymore if it was hard or soft - she just wished it would go away...………….

It is a bit perplexing. What is at the bottom or heart of all this? Is it about national identity? In the United States we are essentially mongrels for lack of a better term. People here like to identify with their roots. "Oh my mom's French and my dad is German and part Italian" and that has been a way of thinking for many years. So many of us look at Europe as the seat our ancestral home.

One interesting note is that many people here think that Northern Ireland is a northern region of the Republic of Ireland. Back in the 70s and 80s they thought the IRA was trying to kick the English out of the Republic. In effect there are two "Irelands." Every person I ever asked about it was dumbfounded to hear that. So when they talk about the common market, the Euro or Brexit, it's Greek to many of us.

UR_Fantazee replies on 2/3/2019 4:31 am:
Don't worry about it - most of the people in the UK gave up trying to understand the US political and electoral systems a long time ago so it works both ways. If people are interested enough, they'll look it up - if it doesn't affect them directly, they probably won't.

Since you brought up the subject, it's amazing now to see how much stress the US puts on "Homeland Security" now that they've actually experienced terrorism on a grand scale on their own shores when back then, there were so many Americans openly supporting the IRA's terrorist campaign, they were OK with them sending cash and weapons to aid the IRA in their trail of murder and destruction against "the Brits" and even worse, their own people.
