Yes we get it, but it does show that arguments from whatever side are now being ignored by the other and indicates that a second referendum/peoples vote will be a complete waste of time. Most peoples opinion is set the result stands, lets get on with it.

You seem to have lost any ability to say anything rational.

The long bullsugar propaganda article was literally on an anti-BREXIT campaign website with propaganda written largely without proper sourcing or references to respected independent sources.

You cannot credibly say that The Times or City AM are anything other than quality respected journalists who publish well-researched articles based on facts.

As for Ruth Lea, she was simply referring to the facts shown in the City AM article.

Dismiss this as bullsugar propaganda if you will but it is from the gov.uk website. So fairly credible IMO

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/trading-with-the-eu-if-theres-no-brexit-deal/trading-with-the-eu-if-theres-no-brexit-deal

I accept that we will leave the EU and another referendum would be stupid. I do argue though  against leaving under a 'no deal' scenario that a lot of Brexiteers want to do. A 'no deal' exit will in my opinion harm this country as well as other countries we currently trade with. Read the article without dismissing it as bullsugar and you will understand why.

Thats the thing with The Times. If you read it daily you'll find it allows opposing views in opposing articles, in order to try and give both sides. In yesterday's paper (not read todays yet) I can pull two articles, one saying Brexit=great and one saying Brexit=sugar.
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.

Brexiteer Dyson and his move to Asia.
« Reply #192 on: February 11, 2019, 13:26:27 PM »
Dyson's doing what he always does and that is look after number one.

He is keeping his research and development in the UK because he knows, and we all know, the best engineers, innovators, designers and inventors in the world are British. We are the best at manufacturing as well but with quality comes price which is why he has moved his manufacturing to Malasia - cheap labour. Look for Dyson quality to drop. He knows that which is why he is saying his future markets are in Asia where they are used to poor quality products.

Him moving his HQ to Singapore is nothing to do with Brexit. It's in line with most big company bosses ,purely selfish.

I have been proved right. Dyson wont care though as his market is now outside Europe and now in Asia.

in response to Baldy and who he looks to as inspiration, i would have to say that having to deal with M r Dyson and his massive land acquisition in the uk, he is sees, profit and takes it wherever it may laie
My two Big Guys that I give credit to to

Mr  Joseph bamford, owner of JCB. remains loyal to the uk and
Mr Frank Williams of formula 1 , based in wattage, just been there today and although Mercedes build the engine he was resolute the Williams is a UK affair.the factory is so worthy of a visit, and if you wanted a day out.... do it
I am sure there are many others, but Baldy had his few, i thought these needed to be added

Brexit: Ford 'steps up preparations to move production abroad'

I expect The Brexiteers will say they were already planning it.

13000 employed by Ford in the UK.
