'All because English plumbers couldn't compete with Polish ones when the choice was 'Yes tomorrow' vs 'I'll try to fit in a visit early next week'...'

And there you have it! What happens to my cheap (L)abour?

Well, the capitalists will now have to start meaningful training courses, using young and not so young local Labour, rather than rely on cheap voluntary slaves to sort out their 1st world pamper sessions. And the double win situation is that these Polish people will be allowed a family life in their own hometowns rather than being packed like sardines in the worst housing in the UK.

A hard reboot is needed to flush the EU turd, then sights have to be turned on the fooking useless politicians.

Fair points. But what happens to the elderly who no longer have a Lithuanian to wipe their bottom and can't afford a nursing home that employs English workers. What happens to agriculture and it's workers when the farms go bust? What happens to the fishermen when they can't sell to the EU?

A hard reboot is needed, but a no deal Brexit harms the poor, the elderly and the regions the most. The wealthy south east and their service economy will ride it out.

There has to be a better way.

There has to, but it will require a couple of generations to change direction.

Bush, Blair etc waanked on about imposing a democracy in totalitarian countries but frankly they are the only ones that get anything done. It needs strength of leadership, but with half the country as much use as tits on a bloke the possibility of voting anyone of purpose in to government is bordering on nil.

It’s absolutely the right thing to leave the EU. How it happens is another thing.

Quite right, Cheats old bean. You don’t run a ship with a democracy.

I voted remain on condition that the EU would obligingly collapse within a decade. It still might happen, but it'd be nicer if the blame wasn't perceived to be ours. Perhaps the collapse is more likely if we leave. Either way, if there's another vote, I intend to make a teeny tiny stand for democracy and back the original verdict.

I would pay my bloke full rates, Polish or not, while you are waiting for your Englishman to get round to a possible visit "next Tuesday or Wednesday for a quote". Worth the wait, eh, because he "speaks the Queen's" when he finally gets here. And he might even clear up when he's finished?

I voted Remain because I thought having to make and sign trade deals all on our own would be beyond us. We're not very good now when it's all been done for us and I'm too near the end of my days to wish to become a hunter/gatherer again.

You are funny candw.

You sound like someone happy to be tucked up in a home being spoon fed each mealtime and having Gull's Lithuanian attending to your lavatorial needs.

Merry Christmas, all the same. 

Now then...

And Merry Christmas to you, comrade! And to all other Hullards and fellow travellers, whoever you may be.
