We're in some real pretty shit.

Our government are certainly acting like a bunch of fannies.

Your guide to a Full English Brexit: self-servings of thick gammon, scrambled brains, white pudding, sloppy has-beans, a hash of everything, Bojo mushrooms (big heads, short stalks, etc.), bubble and shriek, and not forgetting… TOAST!

I think it'll be fine.

thisonehasalittlehat - 08 Mar 2018 18:12:05 (#6 of 10198)

it isn't is it.

nemo75 - 08 Mar 2018 18:12:47 (#7 of 10198)

No

I had my boiler serviced the other day. The men were saying most parts (of Worcester boilers) now come from Germany since takeover/merger with Bosch some years ago. Order online and they arrive in a day or two. So I asked what happens after Brexit, as they'll have to clear customs. Both of them shook their heads, and said they tried not to think about it too much.

Yeah, I suppose it'll be ok: things will just slow down a lot. A less frantic world beckons, just like pre-internet days.

That Calais Port boss hasn't been told that there will be An App on each truck driver's phone, i bet.

They won't slow down. Companies will have to buffer their stocks. The same will happen to companies exporting.

thisonehasalittlehat - 08 Mar 2018 18:27:49 (#11 of 10198)

I wouldn't mind buffering some stock.

WibbleAgain - 08 Mar 2018 18:28:27 (#12 of 10198)

It'll be like being snowed in, all year round. Everything takes ages and ages to happen. Patience is a virtue and we'll all be acquiring it, for free.

There, at least one positive for Brexit.

thisonehasalittlehat - 08 Mar 2018 18:28:59 (#13 of 10198)

I wouldn't mind being snowed in.

levelgaze - 08 Mar 2018 18:33:45 (#14 of 10198)

Perhaps we will be a gentler, quieter country. A whole nation becoming part of the Slow Movement.

WibbleAgain - 08 Mar 2018 18:34:38 (#15 of 10198)

Slow TV will be normal TV. It's going to catch on, isn't it?

thisonehasalittlehat - 08 Mar 2018 18:34:59 (#16 of 10198)

I would mind being part of some slow movement.

breakfast - 08 Mar 2018 18:36:09 (#17 of 10198)

Snow or slow? Make your mind up.

ATtcha - 08 Mar 2018 18:39:32 (#18 of 10198)

For the EU the first issue now is solving the Irish border and the solution won't be technological.

I guess it was May trying to say a lot in short phrases when she said that life would be different.

HouseOfLametta - 08 Mar 2018 18:47:21 (#20 of 10198)

We could make our own fucking boilers of course.

They could cost £7000 and take your head off.
