  1. Old thread locked so new one. Next Saturday there is going to be a protest march in London for the people vote. I personally find the idea of a 2nd referendum problematic to say the least. However I also feel that Brexit is going to cause much suffering and Many deaths. It will line the pockets of some very rich tax avoiding people cause massive de-regulation lowering safety, food and worker standards as well as tanking our economy and bringing an end to the NHS. Some people may say "project fear" Well I really really hope I'm wrong, but I genuinely believe this will be the result, and because of this I feel I have a moral and ethical obligation to do what I can to stop Brexit happening. So yeah I will be going on that march. So since you are all so much wittier than myself, what should I put on my protest sign? At the moment I'm thinking of a Big red bus with either Tax Mog and fund out NHS or Brexit = US style healthcare.
  2. dunno what you call Fish Sticks. but fish fingers are cod in breadcrumbs about finger sized.
  3. from my experience no-one really took the Y2K bug seriously. yeah there might be some issues but no-one believed planes would fall out of the sky. the hype was considered more of a joke. Unlike brexit, a lot of people are worried and really don't know what do to do about it. Its a slow build of an impending sense of doom. and yet we will also keep calm and carry on. I know a lot of people are buying extra tinned and dried food every shop, but no-one as far as I know has really embraced brexit prepping to last more than a couple of weeks. I am one of the people storing a little extra food. Not enough for a complete breakdown, but a bit to help ease things in the initial aftermath. we also have people who laugh and call you snowflake sissys cos its all gonna be great and a land of plenty after Brexit. No problems. so much so that in 20 years I'll be too embarrassed to admit i was worried. (according to them) Yes we do have some real Preppers for the end of the world like you do - (but no guns) nothing to the extent in the US. they are rare and I think mostly imported.
  4. well I justify a 2nd ref on the basis that the 1st one was so bloody close and we know leave broke some election rules and there was Russian interference. So I'm not sure you can truly call it the will of the people.
  5. I'll be at TitanMoot 2018.

    sorry No can do. I have a plane to catch and no longer able to do anything for 2.5 weeks.
  7. well someone I think it was the BBC, did manage to find one guy in a Make America Great Again hat who was unhappy with the protests and said they were a disgrace. this was about Lunchtime on the Friday. So there was at least one person protesting in favour of Trump for a few mins (maybe more)
  8. the protest worked then. He got the message.
  9. I'm trying to work our if Trump's Boris would make a better PM thing Hurts or Helps Boris's attempt at becoming PM in the future? I mean those of us that are pro Trump are probably already Pro Boris.
  10. I think we would be allowed to re-join. but it would be on the same terms as everyone else. So the Euro, no rebate or special rules just for us.
  11. And now Boris has Resigned. Guess he gave on on hoping May would sack him.

    Sorry, I'm not able to play pictionary till at least September. I might be able to do the odd round if needed.
  13. But at least its some kind of progress. At least our side has finally agreed something. even if its totally unacceptable to the EU
  14. The Dragon engine is built in Bridgend. Phase 1 is done. work was going to start on Phase 2 (basically a copy of Phase 1 so we can make twice as many engines.) Phase 2 was put on hold after the Brexit vote. Its now been said Phase 2 will not be coming to Bridgend. Job losses have allready happened. there are very credible rumours that plans are now in place to make the Dragon in Turkey, Its already being made in India, China, Russia, Brazil and Mexico. In Dagenham we were lucky, the Panther engine was mostly fully installed before the referendum. This has bought us time before we need any more new investment. Its also helpful we in Dagenham make some of the highest quality diesel engines in Europe. Fords want to carry on making engines in Dagenham so we might just be able to limp on though the transition. The Bridgend plant needs investment now. If it doesn't get any within the next 2 years you can bet it will be closed in 10. What could really hurt Dagenham is Trump. the majority of our Lion Engines get shipped to the US for the F150. extra Tariffs are likely to kill the Lion then we will only have the Panther Engine being made in Dagenham. (ok so we still have the Puma, but that is 20 years old and ending this year. we are about to start stripping out some of the machining lines for the Puma in a couple of weeks. The point of the above - a very big company is not making any new investments in the UK until they know what Brexit really means. The risks are just not worth it.
