      I see 17.7m adults have had their 1st vaccine dose against Covid-19, around 33% of adults, strange figure and statistic that, as 17.4m was shown to be the will of the people.

      UK Government Paying Daily Mail for misleading "News" articles.

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9294945/How-three-British-businesses-flourishing-forge-new-relationship-EU.html



      Actually says "*This article is part of a paid-for partnership with the UK Government"

      Plus the HYS which the Mails is so fond of "Sorry we are not currently accepting comments on this article."

      Yes it’s good to see how companies can do it if properly prepared. The article may have been sponsored by the government but the businesses are real.


      Lets look at these 3 companies shall we?
      RS Aqua: RS Aqua were founded in 1982, supplying high-specification marine instrumentation and submersible systems to scientists and engineers.
      They have multiple global partners, so I guess they are ok with finding business abroad.

      Aqua & Rock: High end fashion, where a tee shirt costs £38, and a table lamp, over £600. A British company, that as far as I can tell, only posts things abroad, but they do say, *Please note customs charges are not included.
      They used UK recycled items to make their clothes, and only export via the mail.


      Control Techniques: A Nidec brand, is the global drives specialist with a long entrepreneurial history. More recently, we have the support of a large international parent company, Nidec, and its other brands. We are a challenger with a big name in the drives industry.

      Control Techniques in Newtown, Powys, which employs 530 people, has enjoyed a boost to its business from the weaker pound which has made their products cheaper abroad, but any trade barriers would impact on their business.

      The company was bought by the Japanese corporation Nidec after the Brexit vote and manufactures variable speed drives, which are used on production lines. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-43543030

      So I guess not your average exporters/importers, no food producers, not relying on EU countries, 2 have global, non-EU owners/partners, one only exports via mail.

      I really don't see what your beef is? They are three businessses that are flourishing post Brexit, it doesn't matter how they run their business or who they partner up with etc... they are doing well.

      Flourishing? I don't think there is any actual evidence to that, except the that the word is in the headline of a government sponsored advertisement in the right wing paper, if it were an actual brexit boom, it would not need to be sponsored as it would actually be news, that the journalist, would be happy to have their name associated with the article.

      I do not see any finances/accounts to show any evidence of a flourishing business... after 2 months.

      The new editor of the daily mail is a remainer so not sure it’s a “right wing “ paper anymore? If it still is then obviously remainers will sell their soul to the devil.  ;D

      It's a right wing paper as it's Main endorsement is for the Conservative party. It is owned by Jonathan Harold Esmond Vere Harmsworth, 4th Viscount Rothermere.


      The new editor is Eton educated Geordie Greig Mr. Greig is no Middle Englander. An Eton and Oxford graduate from a family that runs in royal circles — his grandfather was, for a time, a close confidant of King George VI — he edited the society magazine Tatler for nearly a decade. Inheriting Mr. Dacre’s wood-toned office, he raised the low ceiling and installed artworks by old friends like David Hockney and Lucian Freud.https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/28/business/media/brexit-media-daily-mail.html

      He may be a remainer, but I suspect he still roots for the establishment.

      Why don’t we also talk about the left wing guardian where their head journalist for three decades has resigned after it has come out he is a supporter of the IRA. Be careful of glass houses and stones and all that jazz.

      Thought you'd gone!
      We're not talking about The Guardian are we? We were talking about government sponsored propaganda in the Mail.

      But as always, it's 'What-about-ery' with you.

      Not sure they have, but don’t play the emotional card, government announced financial support for them and it’s not only Brexit its covid. People lose their jobs all the time, I’ve been redundant four times in my lifetime, no one supported me back then. It’s called life and sometimes it’s sh*t.  Keep digging out the stories, you have some catching up to do, I think you got to about day 24?
      Problem is that it’s not news anymore.


      but don’t play the emotional card: F**k you! I don't play the emotional card Jesus H. Christ, these are peoples lives that have been ruined.

      it’s not only Brexit its covid: it is it's, not its. The fishing industry was sustainable for the whole of 2020, except for the last hour of 31st December, no issue with import/export, Covid did not impact, as soon as we left the EU, we became a 3rd party Country, then the issues started.

      I’ve been redundant four times in my lifetime: Not sure that there was a advisory referendum on leaving the biggest economic block next door to the UK or even 4 advisory referendums for that matter, that would have made you redundant. So you feel, as I've been made redundant, then so what if someone else is?

      Problem is that it’s not news anymore: It's news every day if you want it, import duties, export duties, Irish sea boarder issues, changing trade routes from mainland Europe to Ireland, they are happening every day, or having consequences everyday. Because I or others do not post it, it does not mean it is not happening.

      It’s always terrible if anyone loses their job. How many fishing companies have closed or how many jobs in the fishing industry have been lost through Brexit so far? Serious question.

      I don't believe it's a serious question at all, you know it, and I know it.

      As you will know, there are no figures out yet, but if you have the internet, you can search for yourself, as you know the official figures lag a few months after the event. All indications are showing that things will get worse.

      What do you mean by “there are no figures out yet “? I would have thought if a business had gone or individuals had lost their jobs the guardian or independent would have been all over it?
      You stated that livelihoods have been ruined, I’m trying to find out if what you say is true, I can’t find anything, seems a reasonable request.

      What I mean, when I say there are no figures out yet, is that there are no figures out yet. Capiche

      I have contacted for you, a member of Her Majesty's Government and I quote "Those stats are hard to find, the government has not published any recently but anecdotally we know of lots of businesses that are shedding jobs and closing."

      Fishing firms could go bust over Brexit, MPs told. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-56259855

      Good news that the US has dropped the 25% tariffs on scotch whisky, tariffs will also be lifted on UK cheese, cashmere and machinery, temporary measure for four months while a more permanent solution is sorted.

      https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/mar/04/us-to-drop-retaliatory-tariffs-on-uk-exports-including-whisky-brexit-boeing-airbus
      Whisky a go go: US suspends tariffs on UK exports including scotch
      The White House has agreed to suspend retaliatory US tariffs on UK exports including scotch whisky, raising hopes of improved relations as talks continue about a post-Brexit transatlantic trade deal......
      .....But the Department for International Trade (DIT) said on Thursday the Biden administration had suspended the tariff. The move followed the UK scrapping punitive measures against Boeing in January. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/dec/09/uk-drops-eu-tariffs-on-boeing-as-it-seeks-post-brexit-trade-deal-with-us-joe-biden

      The rapprochement, which was first reported by the Spectator, will also result in tariffs being lifted on a range of goods, including £11m of cashmere, £38m of pork products and £45m of cheese, the DIT said.

      Wow! Doesn't seem that great now that the UK droped Tarriffs 1st on Boeing, we get £93m, but The UK’s move puts it at odds with the EU, which imposed retaliatory tariffs on US imports worth $4bn (£3bn) after the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that the US had given illegal state aid to Boeing, its aerospace champion.

      One of my lads was due a passport renewal. 

      If people voted for these shitty black passports then they're going to be really disappointed when it lands on their doormat.  Absolute tat in comparison to the old red ones.

      Been a disaster so far at the parcel depot I work at. Exports down by two-thirds, 80,000+ parcels in limbo, just in the UK, more stuck in mainland Europe. So many people refusing to pay import duty, a lot of them get mad when you say it is because of Brexit.

      I've had to do a sh*t tonne of overtime clearing up some of this avoidable mess.

      Better for our farmers  :f_sorry:
      Better for our fisheries :f_sorry:
      £350m for the NHS :f_sorry:
      Control Our Borders :f_sorry:

      Brexit has been and always will be when this country shot itself in the foot.
