Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

And I answered you. No you didn't! I still don't know what your opinion is! Yes, I did. I really did. Nope. Can't see it at all. :shrug: Care to repeat? We are not told their reason, so we do not know their reason. Which is why I asked you what you thought their reason might be. Ah! You want me to ...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

The survey didn't seem to have asked that question, so we don't know. All it seems to say is: I didn't ask what the survey thought, I asked you what you thought the reason might be. Well? And I answered you. No you didn't! I still don't know what your opinion is! We are not told their reason, so we...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

Oh, and having now seen the reference in more detail, it is, of course, nonsense to say that "we can trade with the world inside the customs union". FFS! The whole point of a customs union is that it restricts trade with outsiders! If it didn't, it would be a customs union, would it? Are they really...
