Not questioning your post, but is there a reputable source attributable to the 700,000 figure?

Would really appreciate a link

Percy will be a millionaire this time next year

I did read on here that Wetherspoon pub has many pages advertising jobs. Tim will be giving a hand in his pubs by pulling pints by the sound of it

It is a standing joke. Percy has been bull shitting that he and his family have been helping the farmers in picking potatoes and other veg when they were unable to recruit workers from Eastern Europe.

Those damn unions. Thank god their power was taken away and given to the Ripper Murdoch’s of this world. And who the hell wants a world where there was social housing available and a house could be purchased on a single blue collar income.

Now we have global corporate power twinned with financialisation - who in their right doesn’t want that.

Even if that was true, it's peanuts when compared to what we have lost.

I had no idea on the politics of the guy, I only looked at the numbers.

No intention to promote far right anything, but wonder if the numbers are right, or close to. I was hoping for someone better informed than me to comment on the actual numbers

That may turn out to be correct but how can that be quantified so soon after leaving?

The only positive from brexit so far is the vaccination program. There is no denying that is a remarkable achievement by the gov and possible because of brexit.

The rest has been a cluster**** so far. As most of us knew it probably would.

That's how I honestly see it without bias right now. Can't change it so we need to make the best of it.

Why is the vaccination program being linked with Brexit? We could have done that anyway. Lots of EU countries purchased their own as well. We could have simply said “we don’t want to wait for you” and rolled out anyway. Half the EU cluster**** on the vaccine has conveniently been blamed on shortages rather than incompetence. France for example had some stupid rules on who could give jabs

I cancelled my golf club membership and I would save almost 14000 pounds in 10 years time whilst Tim nice but Dim who is still in the club will be paying loads of dosh.

I can’t play golf and I will have to go on a day trip pay premium for the pleasure and need to fill in loads of forms whilst Tim nice but dim can roll up whatever time he wants and play when he wants etc

The vaccination program has nothing to do with brexit. Last time there was a pandemic and we were in the Eu the uk purchased vaccines alone and not as part of the Eu effort. It was allowed Under Eu rules then and it was allowed this time under Eu rules (we hadn’t left yet) as well.

I have posted this a few times but in short during our EU membership 100% of the time the uk went it alone with vaccines in pandemic situations each time within Eu rules.

We were in EU when the vaccination programme etc was agreed if I remember correctly.

A lot of truth has been stretched by the brexshitters here and looks like their spin is winning
