Brexit Wars 3 GreyCarpet: The one that controls what the others post is very dangerous indeed That’s right Threadbare, be afraid… though for you I have the Shake n’ Vac ready for when the time is right.
Brexit Wars 3 jackdawsson: Thanks. But Sri Lanka are the only cricketing nation of note I’ve overlooked simply from lack of familiarity with the sport. The rest: mostly also-rans & no-hopers to make up the numbers. They play against each other in order to qualify and get a chance at the ‘big boys’. Some of them have players earning millions of dollars per season in the Indian premier league. I can’t see why everyone is so hostile to it. If we don’t start valuing some new things in our society we’re going to have a lot of people with no jobs and no future down the line in our on-coming technically automated economies.
Brexit Wars 3 GreyCarpet: The one that controls what the others post is very dangerous indeed, try and avoid direct conversation or it will result in limited access and a ban as can be witnessed today on another thread. Project paranoia is off again.
Everyday J_Westlock: Or just England and Wales? The England team is England and Wales.
Brexit Wars 3 Eadwig: Sri Lanka are a very fine team and have won it once before and lost two other finals. I think you do them a disservice. Also Ireland and Afghanistan are full members of the ICC and USA, Holland, Canada and Scotland have qualified to play in the world cup itself in previous years, unless memory fails me. Other associate members include Jersey, UAE, Israel, Singapore, Denmark, Bermuda, East and West Africa and Papua New Guinea. Hi Eadwig, Thanks. But Sri Lanka are the only cricketing nation of note I’ve overlooked simply from lack of familiarity with the sport. The rest: mostly also-rans & no-hopers to make up the numbers. - Regards.
Brexit Wars 3 fynne: Waste of time with these EU groupies … The one that controls what the others post is very dangerous indeed, try and avoid direct conversation or it will result in limited access and a ban as can be witnessed today on another thread.
Brexit Wars 3 petethenovice: Those applying for the scheme, which will pay around 30,000 pounds a year, do not need to have any qualifications. The department expects most candidates will either be 18-year-old school-leavers or people wanting to switch careers. I’ve always said that the big danger is we do this on the ‘cheap’ (not that there will be anything cheap about their 33% on costs with full benefits and pensions) when the countries we will be negotiating with will be paying top dollar to get the best deal per sector. This is the future of the country, you don’t poach trainee managers from MacDonalds to negotiate for you. Don’t say you weren’t warned, you Brexiteers. This is what you voted for. If we don’t pay at least a couple of billion recruiting and on-going costs of at least a billion per year we’re not even in the same division. Either that or we do it one country at a time, which will mean you lot will all be long dead before you realise by just how much your Brexit dreams have failed.
Brexit Wars 3 jackdawsson: Australia, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, South Africa & West Indies are the only real contenders. Nations like Bangladesh & Zimbabwe can put up a spirited show to some degree, but no-one else really figures. Sri Lanka are a very fine team and have won it once before and lost two other finals. I think you do them a disservice. Also Ireland and Afghanistan are full members of the ICC and USA, Holland, Canada and Scotland have qualified to play in the world cup itself in previous years, unless memory fails me. Other associate members include Jersey, UAE, Israel, Singapore, Denmark, Bermuda, East and West Africa and Papua New Guinea. Other countries are also affiliated including Nepal, Italy, France and Switzerland among others.
Brexit Wars 3 Interesting that Fynne doesn’t like the wiki links we post that have the facts rather than made up ramlings. Of course he doesn’t read any of the wiki or media links we post because he knows his “facts” don’t stand up to scrutiny. And neither does he post any evidence of his own. I guess there isn’t much. Nothing to worry about with Fynne. Cheers, Frog in a tree
Brexit Wars 3 fynne: Waste of time with these EU groupies … doing their usual by distorting the original thread and obviously all answers need to be covered with links to Wikipedia! I’m actually looking forward to the day we leave the eu … just to piss this bunch of morons off ! Did you find any answer to this question and the FTAs we will be doing?? Could you explain with these trade deals you say we can negotiate what will we Export to countries that we do deals with given that our main economy is finance and banking wont it be that any work in that area will be in other countries with Tax paid offshore… ?
Brexit Wars 3 J_Westlock: there isn’t a proper free market in the EU for services What did you mean by that @Eadwig ? Not all aspects of services have yet been agreed as part of the free market. In fact its almost impossible to anticipate all scenarios in advance, which is one reason no comprehensive agreement has yet been reached in about 30 years of negotiation, despite it being one of the ‘four freedoms’. This also highlights the ridiculous claims by Brexiteers that the main export of the UK, services, will be settled in no time as part of a trade agreement with new countries post Brexit. Services are very much more complex than a free market for goods. Discrepancies occur in several areas to do with law (and who can practice it where), health services and insurance standards and some areas of local law which, for example, prohibit cold-calling in sales in some countries and not others. This also depends on who is selling what from country to country and the rights of consumers varying in different countries. E.g. Its illegal to sell anything with a swastika on it in some countries and not others. As a some-time dealer in medals and books this has caused me problems in the past when it comes to advertising, as just the act of advertising an image for sale in the wrong country can violate that country’s law. Online advertising sometimes cannot be restricted that easily, so the rule tends to be no image at all can be shown of the item for sale. Online gambling services are another very contentious area, legal in some countries but not in others. Sometimes laws are invoked to block the provision of services which were never meant to be used for that purpose. (E.g. Money laundering, no matter how well regulated and audited a company is). Which immediately reminds me of different accountancy standards - as we all know with investments these are slowly being brought into line it has been a long process and I doubt its finished with yet. I think I’m right in saying that I can’t ring around insurance companies throughout the EU to insure my car for road use in the UK. I might be wrong on that but I’ve never heard of it being done - not without a company at the very least having to move a ‘branch’ into the country. That isn’t a free market. Many cases have to be decided in court all the time . Here is one example: A “laserdrome” business was banned by Bonn council. A UK firm wanted to to set up this service, but residents protested against “playing at killing” as entertainment. The Court of Justice held that the German constitutional value of human dignity, which underpinned the ban, did count as a justified restriction on freedom to provide services. There are many, many more examples. I think the above highlight the difficulties where services are involved as opposed to goods, which basically just need to conform to a common set of relatively simple standards and then can be sent off from one single country to any of the other 27 with no problem, so far as the physical good itself goes. Even that tends to take years to agree standards, but compared to services its a walk in the park.
Brexit Wars 3 Thanks for Posting as said before Brexit All risk No Reward
Brexit Wars 3 fynne: I’m actually looking forward to the day we leave the eu … just to piss this bunch of morons off ! Ha Ha… good joke Fynne. Would that be on 31st October by any chance? Ha Ha. Get ready for #BrexitRef2 next year.
Brexit Wars 3 HuwJarse: Take a look at this in tonight’s Standard. If a leaver mentions the war these guys lose their s**t completely. This moron thinks we’re going back to rationing. Waste of time with these EU groupies … doing their usual by distorting the original thread and obviously all answers need to be covered with links to Wikipedia! I’m actually looking forward to the day we leave the eu … just to piss this bunch of morons off !
Everyday Is that just England? Or just England and Wales? Or both? And what about Scotland? And Ireland (seeing as it’s an All Ireland team)?
