    Being a member of the eu we had to follow their rules. We couldn't deport eu nationals who had commited crimes like * or murder cos the eu said it affected their human rights. When we wanted to change certain laws within the eu they laughed in our face. Cameron said he managed to change things but with strings attached. Now we leaving we can control our laws and finally control immigration.

    Just say it straight like it is, mate. The foreigners. no EU has ever laughed in your face. Members have a high form sovereignty. Especially the UK. You were able to make a lot of your own laws. But, as with all unions, you had to take some of our laws into consideration as well. Such a tragedy, right?

    But that's what you have been doing for years. Taking the advantages but crying and protesting every time you actually had to give something back.
    Cameron wanted to make changes and they wouldn't budge. Then he managed to get somethings he wanted but with strings attached. So basically that was laughing in his face.


    No, that is not laughing in his face. That is giving him something that isn't normally possible. All the other EU members weren't able to do it. So why should the UK? But, then again, UK managed to get what they want as usual with their special status. Be it with a couple of "strings attached" or basic negotiation as we could call it.

    But what happens? Brits start shouting again how it is an outrage that they got what they wanted while all the other EU members did not. What an outrage! They followed along in our thinking and did their best to give our government what they needed while other members aren't allowed to do it! Disgrace!

    That's your logic, right there for ya, mate.
    Other eu members did get what they want without strings attached. Anyway why is it bothering you that we voted to leave? Your country wants to leave and am not going to be saying oh no you can't leave. This and that would be bad and that will happen. Tbh I couldn't care about other countries but our own. People are saying we won't cope. That's nonsense we trade freely with other countries without problems and will continue to do so.

    But we get cheap prices BECAUSEwe're in the EU. It's not that we won't cope, but prices will shoot right up. For example I just looked at all the fruit and veg in my fridge and even frozen veg in the freezer, and 90% comes from other EU countries. Even things we can grow here like broccoli were imported from Italy because it's actually cheaper to do that. I earn sod all so I literally can't afford for food to go up, let alone energy prices and everything else.
    We can still get cheap prices we can negotiate our deals with other countries. Nothing will happen right away we still there granted for 2 years and in that time we can perpare ourselves for the future. At the moment it will look bad but no one can predict the future they are only guessing. Of course the pound dropped it drops on big things but always bounces back.

    Edit cos I missed out something.

    This was all just scaremongering us to vote remain. Not one person on the remain trail mentioned thee risks of staying. And I have no clue of them.

    As I said it's a big world we get veggies from Kenya, South Africa and other African states, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, America, and so on. Plus I don't think a lot of eu countries will take much notice of the ban

    I haven't found fruit or veg much more expensive from these countries. If we are going to deal more with other countries we can negotiate a better price because we will be wanting higher quantities.

    On a lighter note maybe the money we save from being out of the eu perhaps we could give our farmers better subsidies.

    I'm now twice as terrified about our elections. What a ****-up.

    @Juliet: I am so sorry. On the bright side, you'll get more American tourists. :(

    You just got to get rid of trump by not voting for him. At least you haven't got Boris Johnson in the running.

    I wish it were that easy. I'm beginning to think the sane people are in the minority, at least on my side of the pond.

    As far as the UK goes: Enoch Powell would be proud.

    Isn't it funny how he gave the rivers of blood speech all the way back then, and yet during this referendum the same argument was being used like immigration was a problem that had hit Britain in recent years, and was why we needed to get out?

    :lol:

    Don't worry Lynn, Britain voted to "Make Britain great again"... Wait - isn't that Trump's line for America too? :-o :shock:

    Sad day for England today. Sorry for all the sensible people who voted to stay. Sorry for the world economy as well.

    Silver lining:

    Trump lands in Scotland acclaiming that the vote outcome is "a great thing" ... and that the people of the UK have "taken back their country."

    News Flash, Mr. Potato-Head:

    You're in freakin' SCOTLAND. Scots voted about two-thirds against leaving the EU, and are talking about breaking away from the UK. And America has a good relationship with the UK, but also, kind of like, you know, has a good relationship with the EU. You make it sound as though the UK was being held hostage by the EU. You ain't doing us Americans no favors.

    Donald, when GW first took office, there was a joke that he was busy that first week, sequestered in the Oval Office with his cabinet, while they showed him the globe and had to explain to him why the countries on the bottom don't fall off. Every time you open your mouth about international affairs, I have flashbacks. How about you go buy a nice golf-course in Crawford, Texas? The two of you belong together.



    (Good Lord help me)

    A sad day why? We now can set our laws without the meddling from the eu and don't have to abide by their laws. Sure things are looking gloomy at the moment but things will improve for us. Not forgetting we are still I the euro until the next prime minister pulls the trigger which maybe either the end of this year or early next year then we got 2 years to fully leave. In that time we will have negotiated new deals for ourselves. Oh and Scotland leaving us all I say is bye bye and don't come running for money when they run out or want to use our army.

    The remain camp were scare mongering too. The one thing that no one mentiond from the remain camp was the risks of remaning. Surely there must be risks. Am for one happy we got our country back.

    I love Europe and voted remain.

    Edgar Allen Poe seems quite appropriate-The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether to my mind.
