I fail to see the EU being able to enforce TV companies among its member states to reduce the amount of British TV content broadcast by (mostly) independent TV companies.

If it does then you have to ask serious questions about freedom of speech and the freedom of choice for people living in EU member states, it really does sounds like a communist or far right organisation if it wants to control what it's population views on TV. What next a ban on books written by British authors.

However I don't really think this is a serious proposal I would hope so anyway.
Then you are in for a big surprise. British production companies have benefitted enormously from this for years (built-in advantage over US producers on account of being european, and other european producers on account of being higher quality [because of the size of the export market for english language productions]).

Was it communism when it worked in the favour of UK workers?

25% of British public think Brexit is going well. Must be a mistake. 52% of them knew exactly what they were voting for…

What has EBU has got to do with the price of fish?

Do you want to read the link again and point out where it says EBU?

I wonder if you know the difference between a cowpat and a potato

DD's pre-brexit vote claim that there would be no downsides to brexit only upsides has been tracked.
Yorkshire bylines has listed those upsides (12) against the downsides (192)......so far

There are 12 upsides? feck me sideways, that I did not expect lol


Downside: Pay attention Percy...

182. Fruit pickers: Brexit has led ‘to a 90% drop’ in the number of foreign workers coming to the UK to work on farms in the summer. Stephen Taylor of Winterwood Farms ltd says, “95 per cent of all fruit and produce picked and packaged in this country is done by eastern Europeans. We are not talking about a few tens of thousands, we are talking hundreds of thousands of people less to work in the UK. That’s a massive hole.”

Number 12 of the upsides was 50 new jobs to make ketchup in Wigan,

The Aussie trade deal that adds .02% to our GDP in 15 years time must surely be celebrated although the downside forfeiture of not being in the £680 billion pa trade deal of the single market and CU dwarfs this 100 fold

One of the twelve benefits of Brexit is the EU can now label the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man as tax havens.

I am not sure how Brexiters see this as a benefit of Brexit unless they’re trying to argue the EU, with Malta, Ireland and Cyprus in it, are raving hypocrites.

Come come Adlers. Let's not be picking holes in Brexit wins, please. We have been exhorted by the likes of Tiny Nice But Dim to be more positive with regards to Brexit. Have some faith ffs.

This could be bollox because Brexit Central will go mad when they find out the government didn't red light India because they shipped in 40,000 Indian workers to pick fruit under the cover of darkness.

Why would they cover up the import of Commonwealth workers, though?

Incredible how Frost has got us in this boat, considering the not insubstantial amount of time he spent in Brussels and Paris on UK/EU bilateral relations.

Has he always been thick as mince or is is it politically expedient for him to behave as though he is a bit of spacker?
