Exactly. I don't think the trade association had a lot to do with it.
You didn't ask a question. You made a statement.
And another smart avoiding move!
The question is whether this "£20bn boost" is actually a new money 'Brexit Dividend' or would have been given anyway.
You can either have 5 minutes or the full half hour!
This demonstrates the (I am trying not to insult) lack of appreciation of how the world works. If you want self interest to come out of foreign aid, or us spending money abroad, you only have to realise that most (all?) of the world's aggression between countries is caused by inequalities. The more we can help the rest of the world to be more equal, the safer our world we will be.
this is sadly becoming more common.......ugh!
The realisation that self interest is served by thinking of others? Or that aggression between cultures and countries is growing?
With the second, I think we had actually made progress within the EU. How many times over our history have we been at war with France, Germany, Spain, Italy and many others and when was the last time?
In answer to the thread title: taken away my voice and my say as a uk voter. And put politics where I do not wish it to be.
Didnt the Blair and Brown team do similar tricks and keep offering 'new ' money towards ideas but in fact recycled money as they never seemed to spend it? I rememeberBown offering 3 lots which was never actully 'used' if i rememeber the economic research on it/
do you not vote in EU elections then ?

I do not get to vote on every eu law change like Irish citizens do. Why do you?
Perhaps if the Remain campaign had concentrated on that, instead of trying to discredit the Leave campaign, more voters in Cornwall might have voted for Remain?
I assume then that you are in favour of a confirmatory vote on the withdrawal agreement, being in favour of a personal vote on such decisions.
Another vote yes to follow through with 'how' we leave - as we have already voted of course to leave. And that discussion has been had and won by winning voters- been there done that. So do you get to vote on changes in eu law or not?
Beat me to it.............i shan't hold my breath for anything other than deflection......kinda like they didn't answer what i actually said.....
I'm an Irish citizen. Since when did I get to vote on every single EU law?
Oh, you mean Lisbon? Well, you already know about why it was voted on twice, right? You definitely know about how we negotiated to get what we wanted, then allowed the people to vote again etc etc.
Seeing as, from experience, the English rarely have a clue about Irish history, I'd leave us out of this one. You're not going to come out looking very well.
Seeing as I was raised in Ireland and now live in the uk, I will give you clarity.. Irish citizens do hold a trump card when it comes to some big laws the eu. Its a 'special case'.
Absolutely wrong. The Irish have voted in around 10 referendums on EU constitutional changes since they joined in 1973. Surely you are not claiming that the EU has only had 10 law changes in the last 45 years?
If you look at my last post and keep up you will see this clarified further . Surely you read it? Or did it 'absolutely' pass you by? Indeed Ireland has been a 'special case' for some time.
