As someone very new here you may not be aware that the moderators close down threads when they degenerate into personal slanging matches, and you may not be bothered if this one goes down that hole.

Those of us who have been discussing Brexit since long before the referendum and are now on the third consecutive thread would like to have the privilege of continuing.

To be fair the last two threads were in a time scale that there was a remote possibility that things might change. Now it doesn't matter what pish is spouted the outcome is out of ppruners control and influence.

The moderation has changed absolutely nothing. So no problems there.

Well the mods have already been busy deleting posts, i.e. the one where I was told that I was racist and should through myself off a cliff, and my reply where I quoted said post! Both now vanished from the thread.

Itís rather like the side of that bus that was entirely misinterpreted by masses of people who then defended their ignorance of English syntactical construction by blaming leavers for being uneducated country bumpkins.
Britain didnít vote for Brexit Out.
It voted for Brexit. Out.

Not really I realise you can say what you like and be unmoderated.

But what ever you spout on PPRuNe will have zero effect on the people that read the thread of for that matter what will happen on the 29th.

There has been zero shift in over 2 years from the posters on PPRuNe between remain and leave.

Interesting to see that NI comprises 48% Protestant 45% Catholic. Ignoring the others it would only take one Prod in thirty to switch sides to give a majority for a united Ireland.

They are breeding significantly more than the prod hence why in 10-15 years all the murdering people will be completely pointless. They will get what they want anyway. Even in 1972 when direct rule kicked in it was the same time period until a 60% Tim swing was obtained. So 50 years of people being slotted utterly pointless.

Right, but that isn't quite what you implied though. I'm not sure how big you think these threads are but swing a referendum? Okaaay.

AnA the idea I'm above moderation? No mate, that's another Tesco flight of fancy I'm afraid. Why not come over to the real world? It's alright, there's music and laughter give it a go sometime.

Exactly. I have read what it said on the side of that bus many times and I cannot see anything that says that "£350m" would be spent on the NHS.The 'uneducated country bumpkins'* are those who say that it did state that.

Elsewhere I have mentioned the advantages of learning Latin to learn to say exactly what you mean or read exactly what something says. You don't need to learn Latin to do that. You just need to learn to think. But then far too many people 'knee-jerk' and then convince themselves that their knee-jerk reaction was correct without thinking it through properly. And the ability to write or read accurately is getting worse and worse with ill-thought-out Twits on Twitter or Farces on Farcebook. Which means that the ability for intelligent discussion and genuine exchanges of ideas is becoming rare and people are becoming black-or-white with their 'thinking' while their thoughts and their ability to convey them are actually a murky grey. It's sad.

* Apologies to those real and pleasant country bumpkins!

Don't need too, things are progressing exactly as I predicted over two years ago now. And I am setup for the predicted outcome and the subsequent economic outfall in europe.

Nothing has changed apart from the the whinging volume has increased the closer we get to the leave date.

And there will be no more refs so it's a mute point anyway.

No major shift in opinion and the deal making exactly as predicted...ie cock all chance in hell in anything being agreed.

So far it would appear that everything remain have tried in their efforts to stop Brexit, everything the EU has done in the name of protecting the EU27 (which is the correct thing to do no matter what economic harm it will have on individual member countries) while claiming they do not want the UK to leave, and then Corbyn and whatever it is he thinks he is going to gain by his tricks (he certainly is not getting into No. 10 anytime soon), all in all what it would appear to have achieved is bringing the likelihood of an exit under WTO rules, or no deal just to keep the terminology correct, more likely, and I am pretty sure that that was not what they actually wanted, still they know best how to achieve their end game of staying in the EU after all.

Obviously. The likelihood of leaving with no deal is entirely down to the machinations of remainers and not at all a prime minister who set the clock ticking with no idea how to proceed, wasted two years arguing with itself, employed a brexit secretary who promised the row of the summer over the divorce bill then rolled over on day one, had a trade sectetary who promised 40 trade deals ready to go & has so far done something or other with the Faroe islands, then eventually came up with some deal the EU agreed only to have it thrown back in the worst defeat in history.

Yeah but remainers. So tragically deluded.

Makes zero difference to what's going to happen in the 29th, even if we did agree with you.

I was speaking to a Polish couple down the pub tonight. They informed me that Brexit is now a slang word in Poland. It means someone who says they're leaving and then hangs around annoying everybody. Perfect.

Just when it seemed every day of retirement could be filled on JB salvation for some is at hand !.......every cloud has a silver lining !....great news here then for those still living in the 30's / 40's /50's 0r indeed any decade other than the current one. Obviously, the vacancies in Defra may not appeal to those with a societal aversion to the farming community and indeed, the bit about being "unflappable " would also prove problematic as some do get quite emotive ......but other than that,

Oh, and don't forget the dress code chaps....this on the basis some time ago there was a truly surreal thread as to what one should wear in town.....Levi's , "T" shirts and soft footwear didn't seem to feature much....which negates my applying

Your country beckons !......

Seaborne Freight contract terminated according to Sky News.

https://www.itv.com/news/2019-02-09/...ps-terminated/

controversial no-deal Brexit ferry contract awarded to a firm with no ships has been cancelled by the Department for Transport. Transport Secretary Chris Grayling’s decision to award Seaborne Freight a contract worth £13.8 million had attracted widespread criticism.

The department said it had decided to terminate the contract after Irish company Arklow Shipping, which had backed Seaborne Freight, stepped away from the deal.

A DfT spokeswoman said: “Following the decision of Seaborne Freight’s backer, Arklow Shipping, to step back from the deal, it became clear Seaborne would not reach its contractual requirements with the Government. We have therefore decided to terminate our agreement. The Government is already in advanced talks with a number of companies to secure additional freight capacity – including through the port of Ramsgate – in the event of a no-deal Brexit.”.....
