    Brexit, for once some facts.

    there are so many versions of 'no deal' brexit that nobody knows what their supporters want. Is it: - no divorce payment, no more talking? - a deal on WTO tariff? - a deal like Canada+? They offer very different destinations.

    totally. WTO means that they will have little choice than moving out of the UK.

    £2 billions for what? it's not likely that no deal is going to last long. this money would be better spent somewhere else.

    As education equalises the opportunities for industrial progress to a lot of second tier countries, UK and France have little left to hold on to. Armement is one of those.

    Bafang problem

    intermittent faults are difficult to fix. I came across a case sometime ago that if the bolts that secure the motor casing were tightened beyond a certain number of turns, they put stress on the controller board and stopped the motor. I replaced the controller.

    she's got to show that she fights for brexit before losing.

    that means she is about to perform a U-turn.

    Question 2 will give a small margin. YouGov did a poll on it, it's 52 / 48 to remain.

    JC knows that and he holds the trump card at the moment. If he goes for second referendum, we are likely to remain. If he goes for no deal (basically do nothing, just wait for no deal brexit to damage the tories), he will more likely get a fresh election, hung parliament and TM's deal more...

    there is a possibility that come 29th March, we leave with no deal, then a second referendum to either confirm no deal, ratify TM's deal or rejoin.

    Hunt is an idiot. How long does he think we can hold the 'no deal' position? I reckon 6 months. because when we give up the 'no deal' position, we will have to ratify the withdrawal treaty, pay the divorce bill and sort out NI border.

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    net annual EU immigration was 174,000 before the referendum, 74,000 last 12 months, down 100,000 because their take home in Euros is 15% less. If we have a no deal brexit, the Pound will drop to parity with the Euro, we'll probably stop EU immigration altogether. That may be what you want but...

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    we will continue to trade with the EU like before. What will affect us if we leave the EU's single market and customs union is the outflow of assets. Banks will move their assets to the EU, Japanese car makers, pharmaceuticals will also reduce their capacity, the balance of payments will be hit...

    yes, the bill is in Euros. The £39 billions is the current estimate. It will probably go higher because we are likely going to need a longer transition if we leave the single market and customs union.
