A handy guide to the post brexit world

http://ichef.bbci.co.uk/news/624/cpsprodpb/1819E/production/_90081789_eu_ref_results_map_promo976.png

What 'Brexit' really means for the political parties.

Conservative - Abandon any EU political regulation. Abandon EU immigration.  Ignore ECHR Judicial rulings. Have no intent to ever join the Euro.  Be ambivalent about remaining in the single market unless that prevents trade with the wider world. Refuse to pay any EU membership fees. Vaguely mention possibly rejoining the single market and the EU  'at some future point in time,' but without enthusiasm or any real intention to do so.

 Labour - Embrace some socialist EU political regulation. Embrace EU immigration. Encourage and respect ECHR Judicial rulings. Consider joining the Euro. Stay outside of the single market and discourage trade with the wider world, except with a soon to be formed Comecon of nations.
Willingly pay EU membership fees but do not take up membership.
Often mention possibly consider rejoining the single market and the EU 'at some future point in time,' with much enthusiasm but without any real intention to do so.

Liberal Democrats - Embrace all EU political regulation. Embrace EU immigration. Encourage and respect ECHR Judicial rulings. Demand UK joins the Euro. Sign up to the single market and ban trade with the wider world.
Willingly pay triple usual EU membership fees and fully take up membership.
Never mention possibly leaving the single market and the EU ' at some future point in time,' and never have any intention to do so

UKIP -  Abandon all EU political regulation. Ban EU immigration.  Ignore ECHR Judicial rulings. Have no intent to ever join the Euro.  Leave the single market and trade with the wider world. Refuse to pay any EU membership fees. Never mention possibly rejoining the single market and the EU  'at some future point in time,' and never have any intention to do so.

SNP -  - Embrace all EU political regulation. Embrace EU immigration. Encourage and respect ECHR Judicial rulings. Demand Scotland joins the Euro. Sign up to the single market and ban trade with the wider world, especially England.
Willingly pay quadruple the usual EU membership fees and fully take up the membership, whilst leaving the UK.
Never mention possibly considering leaving the single market and the EU 'at some future point in time,'  and never have any intention to do so.

The Greens - Embrace all EU political and environmental regulation. Embrace EU immigration. Encourage and respect ECHR Judicial rulings. Demand the UK joins the Euro. Ban all trade.
Willingly pay octuple the usual EU membership fees and fully take up the membership, but impose 100% import tariffs anyway.
Ban any mention of possibly considering leaving the single market and the EU  'at some future point in time,' and never have any intention to do so.

Very good.

I would merely add that in 2019 the Scottish Parliament will move to n a new building in Brussels, to be built with a special allocation from British taxes. Forecast cost, £30 billion.

Until work is finished, SNP MPs will stay at the Hotel Amigo, expenses to be paid by a special allocation from British taxes. Parliament business will take place using a rota of select restaurants with at least one Michelin star, bills to be settled from a special allocation from British taxes.

The move will be made to ensure that SNP MPs will not have to risk contagion from the pox-boweled English and will not have to face angry questions from partisan Scots demanding why they are still in the Union and not in the EU. To fuerther facilitate this, English people will be forbidden to set foot off their pox-boweled little island and Scots will be tested using angrymeters at all points of European ingress. Any angry Scots will be deemed English for purposes of later execution.

Interesting comment about Passporting. Is it true?

"Contrary to some recent reports, the EU’s passporting regime has been a key factor in enabling the UK to grow as the financial capital of Europe. It underpins billions of pounds of overseas income and tax revenue, as well as thousands of jobs, by enabling UK-based banks to serve customers across the single market efficiently, without duplication and at low cost. The importance of passporting is shown by the scale of it: the Financial Conduct Authority recently disclosed that 5,476 UK based firms hold 336,421 passports"

How will any change from left to right and back, sort the hole in the Financial Services sector?

You forgot to mention...

What does Brexit *really* mean to The People ?

Because all of the political sides you mention had their say and then the people voted afterwards on a very simply written piece of paper:

"Remain or Leave ?"

We voted to Leave. And in view of what all sides said - especially Leave and the President of the USA with their Mandelsonian Project Fear - we voted to leave the whole fucking shebang.

'Hard' Brexit if you will.

Bill Quango MP said...

EK - there is no 'soft brexit'. there never was.
it was always as you suggest - in or out,

Its only the loser parties who sincerely believe that if they can just convince one million or so people to vote IN, then Brexit will never happen.

part of the strategy is to delay and delay - hoping that a number of 80 year olds will have died and a number of kids will have received the vote.

If Mrs M really wants out, she needs to sign the damn 50, and that sets the actual exit date.

Plus EVERY cabinet minister must from that moment use the 'there is no going back now - we have already left" line anytime a refuser pipes up with another last minute attempt to subvert.

I saw a story in one of the weekend papers that the EU will insist that Brexit negotiations be conducted in French. If that really is true (I'm sceptical) I think we should insist on conducting them in Welsh. I mean, who could object to that without outing themselves as a hate-filled, racist, cultural imperialists?

On a slightly more sane note, do the problems with the CETA deal mean that the Canadians now have a bunch of trade negotiators looking for something to do?

I can't help suspecting that the Canadian treaty holdup is just a bit of theatre implemented as part of the latest project a la 'project fear 'i.e. project demoralise

Electro-Kevin said...

Like Canada and Germany don't trade with each other already.

Does the Canadian free trade agreement mean that Canada has access to the single market and if so does that mean there has to be free movement of people between Canada and EU?
All I ever hear is that we can't have access to the single market without the free movement of people, but do these trade agreements (should they ever get signed) not prove this to be a complete lie?

"Banning trade"? "BANNING TRADE"? Brexiters are morons.

Bill Quango MP said...

Someone is a moron - Not sure that it's Brexiters though.
Especially if you thought it was a real post and old man Jez only wants trade with a Warsaw Pact, Comecon of Communist nations.

he probably would love that, but its no more official Labour policy is than is UKIP's ending trade with the EU.
