Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Here is a short list, and each can of course be discussed individually- of project fear which have turned out, very quickly, to be project reality

1. tariffs for trade with EU- we were promised none.

2. NI border and current very difficult situation in NI

3. Fishing rights

4. Financial Services

5. Security/terrorism cooperation

6. Striking so called New Trade Deals

7. UK / EU qualification equivalence

8. Huge staff shortages in the NHS and care, in the middle of a pandemic + staff in agriculture

9. Erasmus
1. There aren't any

2. What about it exactly?

3. Quite a bit returned now and returned in full after 5 years. So an advantage of Brexit. But doesn't actually matter as peanuts.

4. Non access would hurt EU more than vice versa. London is bigger than rEU combined. We have the power here. It also doesn't matter according to my numerous colleagues in finance. Quite possibly we don't want a deal, or only want a thin deal.

5. Not sure to be honest.

6. Yes, they are being done

7. Who cares? Its up the employer in the vast majority of cases to recognise your qualifications.

8. We can let in who we want. Leaving the EU doesn't prevent us from hiring workers from the EU. An advantage

9. We choose to get rid of that and replace it with a similar scheme. An advantage. Switzerland left it to, but you dont seem to mind that.

Ultimately, we now a full democracy and no longer subject to laws written by an unelected body. Which is a good thing.
