  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    We nick Shauble's idea of the EU paying for the dole (while finessing the Germany supervises part to something like the EU parliament supervises) add also part pays for primary and secondary education with a mandatory civics and Euro language...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Well that source takes its figure from an excel spread sheet which is available on This site which says it is it "HMRC Tax Receipts and National Insurance Contributions for the UK" which I just downloaded and cross checked against...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Well! according to This source 53% or so of UK tax revenue comes form income (32%) and NIC(22%) now I do not know how National Insurance breaks down between employees and their employers but VAT and Corporation Tax only account...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The foreign exchange is the biggie all right, particularly with the UK's current balance of payments. As I recall this brought down more than one UK government in the past. That said the taxes and income of the 300k or...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    There is nothing in the article linked, to suggest that it is anything other than the authors opinion masquerading as news. Yes the French in particular may have been pushing for EU military integration but nothing in the article suggest...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    I am very strongly against legislation via referenda but would be very strongly in favour of referenda to stop/delay or force reconsideration of stupid and/or deeply unpopular governmental decisions (at national or EU level) the rest I have no problem...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    A note on the Scottish situation, would not any negotiation with the EU be considered interference in the internal affairs of the UK? Would that not be illegal under international law. So it would seem to me that the Scots...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Seem to me though that there will be no political stability in the UK unless Brexit is tried. It will only get stronger if it denied by the political class and that may get violent....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The Unionist are not ready to agree to a United Ireland, it would need a prolonged economic downturn that was not affecting Ireland or some serious political betrayal from Westminster. Otherwise they would resist violently and the Irish government or...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Long term no, the UK is too big a player in European term to ignore in the long run. It simply cannot be trusted or taken at is word though as long as UK and the Brexit wing of the...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    The banks probably cannot wait for the politicians to get their act together. Anyone know how long to get regulation compliant and Euro-passport ready in France or Germany?...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    That is actually not a bad idea. The austerity bit can and will be changed when enough voters get sick of it and a viable alternative that they believe presented to them. Or in Europe's case enough countries reject austerity...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    LOL It does looks a bit like that doesn't it. I still cannot get over the notion held by some that the UK gov. can ignore the vote and say ha ha lad it was all a joke, we're sober...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    I think you are right the EU cannot afford the UK, much less the England tail to wag the EU dog. So Scotland vetos the leaving of Europe, Westminster does what? or will the SNP push UDI anyway? I think...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    For those that think that the UK Government can delay exit as long as they want I have a question: Is this politically viable? Presumably most of the Tory pro Brexit backbenchers believe in it and why will they stand...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Farage has already withdrawn the promise of 350 mil a week for the NHS. That was quick....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    So Britain shuts down immigration and the economy remains poor, with poor prospects then What? How long before people wake up to the real source of the problem?...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Oh! I know it is a long way from ordinary Goths which is why I read the article....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Yeah, I was somewhat aware of the nature of Scandinavian racism, a couple of years ago, for reasons I cannot remember I stared googling something on Goth subculture and found myself reading some fascinating stull on feuds between Norwegian Death...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I do not follow. First off I fail to see any advantage of being in Schengen and out of the EU. I understand why Norway and Switzerland are there, I just do not see any advantage in the position, Secondly...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Not any more as far as I remember, he left once it was no longer tax efficient for him to stay. I think he is now living in a proper tax haven, not sure which one....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Thanks, Stevie, its been illuminating...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    This goes to the heart of what I suppose I have been trying to tease out. It has been my impression that the GOP in the US are not fundamentally interested in addressing the illegal immigration issue because they want...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    So are we talking the 400k or so mentioned here or the several millions of Irish decent since the mid nineteenth century? The former we could cope with the latter would destabilise more than Ireland. I suppose you are also...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    That last line should have been: Irish born, living in the UK......
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Apology accepted, not a bother anyway. I just though you had me confused with a pro brexiter, couldn't have that now. I agree that Ireland is in a tricky position and I am well aware of the history of UK...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Ok, as far as I know, EU law is agreed to by the Council (essentially the governments of Europe) and can be amended by the EU parliament (in limited circumstances the Parliament has I believe a veto). Anything passed at...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Gerry Adams is now a mainstream politician in the Irish republic. TD for Louth, Leader of the 3rd largest party in the Dail...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I do care in the sense your are saying but it is an event entirely outside my control and I think Stevie was mistaking me for a brexiter. The people that I know that have a vote are all pro...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Good answer, better than mine but you will never get less bureaucracy from the EU it is the lowest common denominator of 28 National bureaucracies and legal systems, arrived at by committee. It is never going to be less than...
