    Article 50 specifies 2 years for negotiating leave terms. The default position has always been a 'Hard Brexit' unless other terms are negotiated.
    The Government and Opposition were both totally unprepared for a Leave vote, wasting the opportunity (rather, obligation) to prepare contingency plans and policies well before the Referendum.
    After election as party leader May then jumped the gun by invoking Article 50 prematurely without any clear plan about what we wanted after leaving. (The idiot Cоrbyn actually wanted to invoke article 50 immediately after the Referendum, without preparation or a plan which was even more stupid - so Leaving under Cоrbyn would actually have been worse still.)
    She then weakened her position in the UK by calling a General Election and fucking that up.

    May totally failed to prepare for the default Hard Brexit, which was criminally negligent and also fatally weakened the UK's negotiating position.
    We were under no obligation to make settlement payments to the EU. The EU sells more to us than we sell to them. They need our trade more than we need theirs. The EU has more vulnerable nationals in the UK than the UK has in the EU (?).
    May then threw away our strong negotiating hand and allowed the EU to dictate the whole negotiating process.
    We are 'led' by morons.

    If she was a Christian, she would have some humility, accept she is not liked or wanted and go.
    Instead she disrespects the will of the people, conservative members and a growing number of MP's.
    Being a liar and a bully is not very Christian.
     
    Instead she has the dictatorial air of another religion.
    Planted, bought and paid for like Barry and Brennan?
    Loves headscarves and met her husband through a friendship with Benazir back in the day at Oxford....
     
    She has the safest Tory seat in the country with a now 64% majority which she was she walked into after leaving her position at the Bank of England in 1997.
    What are the chances of getting that leg up at your first try?
     
    JRM had to try a number of times before even winning a seat

    I'm in Germany at the moment (and wary of what's going on here, may have to move again in five years or so), after nine years in New Zealand. No country is perfect but being a stranger in a strange land has its advantages, giving you a different perspective to the locals which allows you to see opportunities they often miss. As an old friend once told me, once the umbilical cord to your 'own' country has been cut, moving on as and when necessary becomes much easier. Your self-reliance goes through the roof, too. No country is home for me now, and I love the freedom that gives me.
    Just replied about this in other post.

    Bkkandrew reacted to billfunk in John McDonnell (Labour Shadow Chancellor) calling for collective ownership of land...   
    We don't need collective ownership of land, we just need to tax it properly.
    We do need collective ownership of the currency.
    Typical illogical so-called lefties getting it all wrong again again again. Again. When will they ever learn?
    Currency = Socialism (State owns it)
    Land = Liberalism/Georgism (State taxes it)
    Labour/Production = Capitalism (State leaves it alone)
    Twas ever thus. When will people learn?

    I am just going to put this here 
    "And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

    Neither do I. This is your major problem Funn3r. You make assumptions, both on what people think or what may or may not happen. My actual opinion on brexit is I think nothing will really change. What we see is merely a pantomime. Everything is already predetermined imo. We may get a crash, whether that be the currency, oil, housing, the wider financial market(s). But it will have nothing to do with Brexit, more the vampire squid. For any problems and issues Brexit fixes there will be many more problems and hurdles it creates. I'm a pragmatic person. At the end of the day though, I would rather it go tits up completely and we be punished as a nation if it means we stand on our two feet.
    I agree with Null, fair play for posting. The only thing I would ask of you is try and take a step back and challenge your thinking. Perhaps you have already, I don't know. But I see some real inconsistancies with your view points. Likewise I will challenge myself, Half the reason I post in the financial section is to get individuals to reply and get me and them thinking.

    I promised @Carl Fimble a proper post about the situation in Myanmar and being a man true to my word, I will give one.
    It is not the full story, I need to take a few more days chatting to some people close to the situation up there to do that, so I will just start with a few thoughts at this stage.
    The starting point in this part of the world for Governments is, despite often strained relationships, that sometimes even spill over into military conflict, an element of mutual reliance has been the realpolitik since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Examples include all regional Governments instantly welcoming and recognising the recent Cambodian election, despite threats and bluster from the West. This is because Cambodia can then be called on to quid pro quo when the busybodies turn their attention to, say, Thailand.
    The other factor is that this geographical area has been the front line of wider international conflict for many centuries. The meeting point of the British and French empires. The extent of the Japanese advance in WW2. The active battleground that provided the hot show in the Cold War, before becoming the ‘Domino that cannot fall’ in the 80’s.
    In a sense, the Thais, Khmers, Laoations, Vietnamese and the Burmese are inured to being the center of other peoples’ battles, have themselves historically been in constant war with each other, yet have each other’s backs when it comes to outside interference in the way we are here and the way we do things here.
    The rise of Islamism in the past 3-4 decades is no exception to this. The Islamists have been given no quarter here and are pushed back North with violence in Myanmar and South with violence in Thailand. Internally, Islam is tolerated, but not allowed to dominate or influence.
    What seems to be happening now is that, boyed by Islamic successes in Europe and, to a lesser extent, the islands of the South China Sea, those that fly the flag for Islam are intent on troublemaking here. As some have noted, the UN seems to have taken sides. Why? I don’t know. Saudi money or the Jewish Cabal? 
    If one accepts that Thailand is the regional superpower here, I do know that neither the Saudis (after the Blue Diamond Affair), nor Jews, whom Thais regard with the same disdain as Nigerians, are likely welcome in any part of this region to gain influence on the ground.
    So, it seems that the meddling is from international organisations, such as the UN and MSM groups. As such and as has been shown for many generations now, on the ground it will not matter one jot.

    Collective ownership of land might be better than the current situation where the crown owns everything and we just get a freehold at best.  Have a read of "Who owns Britain" if you are interested.
    I'd rather like my house to be my house.   I'd rather not have a Marxist in charge of housing policy where you eventually end up with him and his mates owning everyone else's house with a thin veil of pretence that it's in all our interests for him to be looking after us peasants.

    Bkkandrew reacted to The Idiocrat in Deluded Old Scrapper Birds On Dating Sites   
    It's his site, he can decide what he wants, and if he's anti-semitic then he can say so. However, I always thought of his site as mainly focused on red pill with a bit of pro-Trump, which is where it's good quality, and I (personally) find the anti-semitic side very unpleasant and it really detracts from his site. All IMO of course.
    That's my point, his red pill stuff is of stellar quality, but it's hard to swallow (!!) when there are so many anti-semitic comments which detract from the quality posts. I'm not suggesting any censorship, he can do what the fuck he likes, but to me it makes no sense from either a business perspective (ie. him generating site traffic) or from a rational perspective of blaming jews for circumstances that are perfectly within our control (IMO). It just stops me enjoying that site and frankly I hesitate to visit it sometimes as I don't want to trawl through shit to find the gems, and it seems to be getting worse. Shame.
    Broken woman. A real shame.
