Because it's worth it

Post by pabenny » Fri Jul 17, 2020 2:50 pm

Additional customs documentation following the Brexit transition period is estimated to cost business £7bn a year and government £3bn a year.

Meanwhile, £700m is being spent on developing border facilities.

But it's a price worth paying to take back control.

Yeah.... but think about that extra £350m a week... and all for the NHS!!!

A reminder of my prediction.... the UK will pay more to get less

But, hey! At least it will be British less, eh?!!

Can Pakefield's Law actually apply to a thread about Brexit? :eh:

Really? That's your motivation? You just want to annoy people?
So long as half the country is pissed off, you're happy to keep throwing money at it?

Is it a 'prediction' though, when it's blindingly obvious?

It was a prediction back in 2016!

It was a prediction when people crowed about the "easy" deal with the EU

It was a prediction when "we hold all the cards"

It remains a prediction, soon to come true.

Just another pathetic person who hates anyone who does not agree them on Brexit. It is not worth cost for some whose essentials cost more due to brexit when they already go hungry to make sure their children have food.

Oh yes, I agree. I merely meant that it was so utterly obvious that this would be the outcome, that I am hesitant to call it a 'prediction'. It's not like you had to read tea leaves to divine an unsure future. It's more like predicting that a full glass of your favourite tipple will shortly be an empty glass. Anybody who applied a modicum of thought could see it wasn't going to work how the leave camp described.

tl;dr: I'm pedantically quibbling over the definition of 'prediction'. I have agreed with what you predicted all along.
