No we don't.


Still doesn't answer the question why NATO would do it.

What the more civilised Western states would do depends on how rogue we become post-Brexit.

Yes.

You tell me why NATO would 'ship' our nuclear deterrent to France, when leaving the EU has little to do with being a NATO member?

Just answer the question instead of being facetious.

iF bRITAIN WERE TO BECOME A FAILED STATE WE WOULDN'T HAVE THE MONEY OR MANPOWER TO RETAIN THE NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN A SAFE MANNER.
The rest of the western world would demand those weapons be removed.
Who else could do it other than NATO?
oBVIOUSLY WE HOPE IT DOESN'T COME TO LIVING IN A FAILED STATE.

British nationals who have retired to EU countries including Spain and France will no longer have their healthcare covered by the NHS in the event of no Brexit deal, the government has said.

The confirmation will come as a blow to around 190,000 British citizens retired in the EU in places such as the Spanish Costas, Provence in France and Tuscany in Italy.

It could also add to the burden on the NHS if pensioners believe they have no option but to return to the UK for treatment. The government has previously admitted it is cheaper to pay Spain and France to look after Britons than have them fly home.

Currently pensioners can get treatment reimbursed by the NHS under an EU-wide set of reciprocal arrangements.


Imagine the heaviest NHS users, 190,000 of them, turning up and demanding a place with their local GPs, and what that will do for appointments and A+E wait times.

Parliament debate:

Dominic Raab - Clever chap

Dominic Grieve - Slippery snake

Yvette Cooper - Rumbled.

What about zombies, any of those?

None of that is going to happen, and when it doesn't you'll all say "we never said that it would".

I'm better at this prediction business than you lot.


I follow a chap called Jason Hunter on the Twitter, he's an ex international trade negotiator and until recently, worked for National Grid. Jason gave up his NG job because he could see the obvious harm that leaving will do (despite leaving increasing his salary) and focused instead on trying to educate people about the horrible shit that's going to happen. He's all over YouTube and is one of the 'Three Men in a Pub' debate podcasts and has indeed confirmed that we will get powercuts and gas shortages.

TL;DR: High up exec in the National Grid says the leccy will go off.

Because we would be a desperate and compromised country.

If Somalia had nukes when it was stable would you support taking them out in the situation that that country is now in?

"Dominic Raab - Clever chap" ???

This is the MP who, as Brexit Secretary, visited Dover.

In comments reported by the Politico website, he said: “I hadn’t quite understood the full extent of this, but if you look at the UK and look at how we trade in goods, we are particularly reliant on the Dover-Calais crossing."

Seriously clever chap - who knew that before he pointed it out?

Does UKRAINE still have nukes? If so, the question of us retaining them is clearly answered.
