The Positive Brexit Thread

Recommended Posts

Another area of concern for you is the effect of Brexit on the science community. Do you see any cause for optimism there?


"Not really. There are three major science blocs in the world, which are North America, China and the far east and Europe. Britain is actually good at science and had a lot of influence in European science. And so we have lost power and influence. That’s a political thing. The psychological thing is that I meet scientific colleagues around the world and they just think that the UK has turned away from collaborative science by looking back on an imperial history that no longer exists. It’s just very sentimental. And we’ve taken a leap several decades into the past."

Sir Paul Nurse.

I'm just reporting what's in the news 

Except it isn’t news is it? 

It’s an opinion piece, and ignored the fact the FTA negotiations just got stalled until at least Spring 2021. And so cute that he thinks that speaking English would lead to a natural trade alliance - like nobody has exploited that already - like for the past 70 odd years since WWII?  Did you even know that the UK is the largest investor in America? And the point of a new trade deal is to increase the trade we already have not substitute one for another?

This was a newspaper as well.

Told you the following at least three times previously: Lefty, Gary Jones, has been editor of the Express for a couple of years now...

Right-wing commenters have been leaving in droves and sales have dropped significantly.

it did, in German

unfortunately among Herman's many powers, one is not the ability to change names used in history

and for the record it does not have a website - but I am sure you are signed up to plenty that express the same thoughts

If he read the thing then he'd realise it hasn't changed a bit. In fact it's got worse somehow.

I know you're not the sharpest tool in the box but would you prefer this more recent comment (Business Standard) ? 

By the way - most companies don't say things when they are in talks with govt. about bail-outs that offend. Don't bite the hand that feeds you (actually a good motto for most Brexiters)

Tata may sell stake in JLR, UK steel plant as talks with British govt fail

if asset stripping can be called investing'

wreck the economy then help yourself

(see Germany in the early 1920s)

but you are too stupid to even understand that

I am well aware, as are most, that if brexit was to happen then the value of UK assets would decrease - anyone buying them would be getting them at a lower price

that also applies to the labour force, once wage levels and conditions have been reduced

and if all of that can be set aside

then a far lower pound in itself will enable foreign 'investment' to help themselves
