One of the slimiest Tories about, a closet gay and a pathological liar. Just vile.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said the fact that the trade deal with Japan will not be rolled over in time for Brexit day underlined the dangers of a no-deal break.
"One of the great myths of Brexit was that we could instantly sign new trade deals whilst seamlessly rolling over the existing deals we already have with over 70 countries as a member of the EU," he said.

"This is damaging myth which has proven to be false. Should no-deal materialise, this will cause serious problems for our economy."

It's frightening how many people think agreeing a deal is a simple nod of the head and sign here.
Huge discussions have to take place for many most of these deals. Like okay America we'll agree to let you have the NHS import shit food into our nation but you can't have the biscuits. If America demand the biscuits too then negotiations have to take place.

In a time of peace and plenty we as a country are planning on rationing everything and not even able to get the chemicals needed to clean our water supply.
It's quite alarming.
The medicines supply is so alarming that I phoned the doc yesterday and said I need off these class A drugs as soon as possible.
I have told him I will probably go illegal for my medication from that point on.
He's going to phone me tomorrow.

Government urged to reassure people that Brexit will not impact insulin supplies
Two leading diabetes charities have called for the government to clarify that insulin availability will be secure in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Diabetes UK and JDRF have joined forces to request ministers detail how they will ensure that people with diabetes are not affected, and not left without vital medication.

The UK is currently set to leave the European Union at the end of March and there is still no trade deal in place.

Price hikes or bust farmers? Another miserable Brexit choice
by Nick Kent | 19.02.2019
Tomorrow a cabinet committee will tackle an especially thorny Brexit problem: deciding the duties to be levied on imports if we crash out of the EU without a deal.

Two pro-Brexit ministers are at loggerheads on how to proceed. Liam Fox, our not very successful trade secretary, apparently wants zero tariffs on as many imported goods as possible. But Michael Gove has promised farmers “specific and robust protections for farming” when the tariffs are announced.

Neither option is good. If we slash import duties farmers will go bust, but if we keep them at current rates food prices could rocket. It’s another miserable decision forced on us by Brexit.

If we crash out without a deal on March 29, the UK will have to trade with the EU on World Trade Organisation (WTO) terms. The UK will have to charge the same level of duty on imports from the EU as we charge those from other WTO countries. This “most favoured nation” rule also requires the UK to set and publish its list of duties (the tariff), which is what ministers plan to agree it at a meeting tomorrow.
It all sounds very technical, like so much to do with Brexit. But buried within the mysteries of trade lie some painful truths. Average EU tariffs on food are high: 40% on meat and dairy, 30% on chocolate and 11% on fish. Roughly 70% of the UK’s food and drink imports come from the EU. Adding tariffs at current rates to those imports could increase their collective cost by £6 billion.

The solution seems obvious – cut the import tariffs on food and drink to keep prices down in the UK. But that would encourage producers all over the world to flood the UK market with cheap food – at prices our farmers couldn’t match. Those imports might be cheap but they wouldn’t have been produced to equivalent standards, whether in terms of food safety or animal welfare.

It gets worse for farmers who export pr>>>>>>>>>>> https://infacts.org/price-hikes-or-bust ... gjN4S5S8Os

A country is a mass of people who need leading protecting educating not being seen and used as mere economic units.
Government needs to be made up of small businessmen self employed people scientists doctors social workers designers engineers planners judges a military man or two and so on. Let businessmen take care of business.
The odd corporation man and banker is okay too.

bullshit

What you're asking for Tom is Fascism.


whooooa Jack...I am calling for someone with a logical mind.Someone who has actually accomplished things in the real world.a problem solver.
Look at Eisenhower.He ran a fricking world war. When you categorize peoples empathy by what they do for a living you are making a huge mistake.
Just because someone is a businessman doesn't mean at all they they view people only as economic units. Ad just because people are Genrals or in the military in any way does it mean that they are war mongers.
So--to tie that in with eisenhower....Eisenhower presided over a peaceful time. And eisenhower warned strongly against the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. This coming from one of the top commanders in WW2.
peaceful AND the kind of guy who accomplished significant tasks. same can go for business people. Successful creating jobs and solving problems and negotiations...and as compassionate and fair minded as any other person.

Thoughts on Brexit from an Anarchist Perspective



Bit too long to go through it at the moment but I agree with this:

Firstly, I personally believe that we should refrain from campaigning either in opposition to, or in favour of, Brexit. Campaigning in favour of Brexit must be avoided as a result of the problems that I have discussed in this article. and the fact that doing so would further legitimise the far-right. Campaigning in opposition to Brexit is unadvisable as we should refrain from showing support for the European Union, or for the British Government, as both are oppressive state organisations that unjustly concentrate power to a minority, exploiting people in order to do so. It should also be considered that campaigning in opposition to Brexit may unintentionally undermine the political influence of the power; the British public directly voted in favour of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union, and we must be careful not to set a precedent for governments to ignore or overrule the directly democratic decisions of the people

Major banks on the Continent will be able to carry on using London for £60 trillion of crucial trading activity even if there is a No Deal Brexit.

Large lenders inside the European Union have been given permission by Brussels to continue accessing so-called clearing houses in the City for a year after we leave.

These clearing houses allow banks to trade complicated derivatives which underpin vital lending to households and businesses.

Car production is also being forced more and more in the direction of electric. In Aerica there should by now be a shift to natural gas engines too seeing as they have such a glut of the stuff they don't know what to do with it.
On top of that there is a massive global recession just starting so not many want to make massive investments in production at the moment.
The recession isn't of course being mentioned much in the MSM because the people might be able to prepare themselves a little better but I would not be surprised to see civil unrest on a massive scale across Europe this year.

So even if we remained in the EU they would have gone.

Car production worldwide is in the shit. Over production and falling demand worldwide, not just in diesels, are a real problem. Then there is:

Underwater Car Loans Are Bigger Than Ever

In light of declining sales, car dealers have become more loose about exactly to whom they will sell cars. We're not just talking about the sketchy "buy here, pay here" dealers, either. Mainstream dealers are playing loose and fast with car loans as well.
