good grief, thought this was about saving money??

oh and the sovereignty, of course

Its for our fee for the remaining years while we are still part of the EU.

We paid this last year, and all the years before. Did you not know that?

FenceSitter01 Thu 21-Sep-17 22:10:12

Look on the bright side - we got our country back.

If anyone could tell me where it went because I never noticed it missing in the first place

Shhhh.

Don't you know "every time a Remainer moans about Brexit, a unicorn dies"

so Garden, it's fine to keep on paying it but without any of the benefits?

anyone else?

ssd Thu 21-Sep-17 22:35:50

oh yes, we got our country back.....sure we did.....

I'm the scheme of things £10b isn't all that much.

Just shows what crooks the EU is made up of. IMHO. It's not better than a criminal extortion and protection gang. Shameful!

It's just rich people benefiting instead of other rich people.

Anyone thinks you will be worse off and putting less money into whatever economy is a moron.

It's like racism feminism and all the other shite. Just something the folk can argue about while getting ripped off.

More upset at 50 billion for a high speed railway. Most of the cost will go on consultations and planning and overpaid professionals. It will go over budget because despite being paid a fortune they are as crap as everyone else.

Hey guys. Don't worry. £350b is getting pumped into the NHS. It's fine.

No more unskilled immigrants.

The spitfires will be flying over our skies and Dambusters will be playi.g.

It's. All. Fine.

Yay!!!!

The whole ethos in my school is about getting children to cope with change and developing resilience. Yet the liberal elite are completely unable to cope with any major change at all.

Talk Leaving down if you want. It's only natural. Then grow up and deal with it.

liberal elite

Yes! imagine expecting people to pay for things they promised to pay for, for the length of time they voluntarily signed up to? Shocking behavior altogether!

hmm

The liberal elite are very representative of the UK as a whole.

Huzzah the liberal elite

ssd Thu 21-Sep-17 23:02:31

liberal elite, aye right gosh, I'll tell the jokes

What keep our promises???

I actually did think that that was the British way...i thought that was our country...backbone, responsibility etc

Sad to see that for whole swathes of the country that its the opposite

Originalfoogirl Thu 21-Sep-17 23:05:56

Oh don't, it will hurt their brains. They've only just got their heads round getting our sovereignty back, which means Government can make decisions like triggering article 50 without a vote and vote to push through any legislation they want and no-one can do anything about it.

More upset at 50 billion for a high speed railway.. Which will definitely cost more now we don't have reasonably priced labour from the immigrants who fuel the construction industry, and no longer have the benefit of OJEU.

Yours,
One of the "overpaid professionals" 😄

yup its a shit show - the UK economy is behind Italy and well behind most other EU countries according to the latest OECD metrics.

The pound is at an all time low - I've found it so expensive to travel to Europe recently - I remember the days when it used to be cheap to travel to France for example.

Food prices are noticeably higher.

How can anyone deny Brexit won't be a disaster for this country??

What does that MEAN?

You do understand how the single market works and the opportunities the UK currently has in this trade agreement? What a strange blanket statement. You sound very ignorant

Urmmm.... ?? WTF are you talking about? We haven't left the EU yet.... Why would food prices being noticeably higher (higher than when??) You do realise food prices are hiked every year?? I cannot ever remember when it was cheap to travel to France....

I have travelled to other European countries this year. The travel prices have been on par with what I paid this time last year.

Are you a spin doctor for Corbyn by any chance??
