The coronavirus crisis has exposed the truth about the EU: it's not a real union

If you read it on TheGuardian....

I know this is three weeks old, but really... it's news that the EU is not a real union?

EU countries can't bring themselves to agree on proper universal tax laws, so multinational corporations have it easy to shift money around and avoid delivering VAT to the states they made their revenue in. Which in turn allows them to offer products at dumping prices and drive smaller local businesses into bankruptcy, so it hurts EU citizens twice. A lot less money for countries to spend on infrastructure and everything else, less job security.

The EU certainly has its purposes and benefits, but it's a lot of patchwork with many things not being sorted out properly.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Extension deadline has passed now.

No Deal firmly back on the table.

Ironic that its Scottish waters/fishing rights that seem to be the sticking point given how the Scots allowed one of their only billion £ industries to wither under EU directives while everyone else in Europe wants a piece of it.

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

We are probably going for a no deal.
Cant wait to see how britain will become the worst country in the world, there will be no food, no medicine, planes wont be allowed to land and on top of all plagued by a gonohrreia outbreak (they seriously said that).

Tbf the predictions about supermarket shortages and the economy tanking came true.

Thats true, even spam was in shortage for a while. Which actually may be a good thing.

If you’re horny and you know it, and you really had to go it, if you’re horny and you know it, get the clap!



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Agree with him.... totally.

The fact that ~80% of the UK economy is financial and services, and a huge part of that, is the single market with the EU, and their just willing to piss a huge part of it away, is odd.

PS. dont judge him by his apparence, listen to what hes actually saying.

"Watch a youtuber, he'll tell you how the world works."

Give it up already. The UK knows what advantages it does and doesn't have as part of the EU.

The EU is little more than some bullshit woke empire that is gonna crash against reality like all empires do at some point.

I just hope they don't cause another World War when they realise they have to create value instead of stealing it and living off  England's legacy.

Edit - Without the UK, Europe hasn't done anything of value for ~500 years. If Europe doesn't start doing stuff soon, it's gonna be a Chinese world. Europe needs Germany to be the power it was destined to be without the guilt complex.

"The West" never needed Chinese capital before but now the whole game is reliant on it. Default/inflate the Chinese debt away and cripple China by not letting them steal our IP.

Pyro as Bill.

So just ignore facts and reality, and talk about the "greatness" of a once upon a time, GB?
(the past is the past, we re talking the next 25-50 years here instead)

80% of GDP for the UK is Financial & services, that they mainly get from Europe.
The not getting a free trade agrement with EU (ei. just hard crashing into WTO rules) will mean you risk loseing large quantities of that.

Remember the brexiteers used to call all this stuff "Project Fear"?
(ofc EU wouldn't risk UK leaveing without a deal, and some form of free trade agreement, EU needs UK, more than it needs them, they will bend over if push comes to shove)

Reality?
EU has been saying the same thing over and over, and the UK just ignores it.
UK is basically gambleing with its economy, hopeing the EU saves them from themselves (and it doesnt look like this will happend).
Its just driveing the car towards the cliff edge, and intending to go over it.


Reality :

(UK trade secretary leaked letter, in a panic of how things will turn out)
(border infrastructure wont be ready, until april/july of 2021. Smuggleing + legal trouoble with WTO to come from this. This comes from your own Trade secretary)

*also this is "disaster for firms tradeing within the EU" (by her words). Apparently this "half year" long gap without anything in place will hurt businesses.

Mark Francois writes a mocking letter to EU, to score points amoung brexit voters.
Michel Barnier replies in a very diplomatic way.

(incompetence and curruption)


UK decides it wont use EU satilites for military and such, to get its own.
Only issue? it bought the wrong type of satalites.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kui7R3MOhRY

We re Great Britain, we dont need the EU.
And i ll prove it, by getting our own nav satilites! Procedes to spend a ton of money, on something not able to do what it was supposed to do.
