Re: Brexit Phase 3: an enthusiastic jump from the cliff-edge

The problem is not if the UK negotiator is a leaver or a remainer, but rather if he is able to understand what is the EU, what are the written rules and so what he could get or crash out. Each time the UK comes with a "plan" that breaks the four freedoms the answer will be the same..... An...

Re: British passport holders can't add carry-over any months to their new passports

The non EU migration figures you refer to stem from over 50 years of migration from Commonwealth nations. The huge influx of EU migrants started in 2005. As we had that discussion on that forum many times before, I'll just post a quote that sums up things perfectly: Mr Drechsler also said it was ti...

Re: British passport holders can't add carry-over any months to their new passports

All that talk and thee problem is very simple.

The UK decided to leave the EU and become a third country for the EU.

All the whining is because the UK tries to escape the rules that apply to ALL third countries, and that it helped to create, just because you know, british exceptionalism....

I mean that is crap because some brexiter use it to make a point that will never work. Basically they think that if they try to make the most damages while the UK leaves, the EU will have to disintegrate to give the UK what it wants to somehow mitigate theses damages and that will never happen.
