If you really think that you've led a very, very sheltered internet life. I don't agree with a lot of what he posts but there is much, much worse out there. Hell, you only have to read the last page of the Brexit thread on here to see one particularly odious example in action.

Summer Holidays are already taking a hit in the average UK travellers pocket

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/04/28/brace-expensive-holiday-abroad-summer/

The impact on currency rates & less money in the pocket is obviously having an effect as it is boosting UK stay at home holidays.

It will be interesting how next Winter Season pans out.

@stanton, I found it cheaper to go to Bali for 2 weeks than where I wanted in Europe, you are aware of the rest of the world? Which is where people will go if Europe becomes as hateful as you. How much of your income this season was from British tips?

@Norrin Radd,

Bali ?

Thats not the rest of the world its just a trashy tourist island for fat belly bald westerners even 20 years ago last time i visited I couldnt get out quick enough & hop over to Lombok which was just starting to get ruined . Recommend Maluku to get far away from the Trailer Trash.

You are such a cunt, slagging off a whole island based on the touristy bit near the airport.

My point is it was cost effective to fly to Bali for two weeks, stay in a house in the middle of the island, miles from anyone , let alone tourists, than go to Greece. EU ?
I went to Lombok in 1986 and 1988, which is why I took my children to Bali, to get a feel for where I grew up.

You have no credibility so if you have read about Lombok that is great news but not for a second do I think you have been there.

It's nice to know you were a fat bald westerner 20 years ago , but how would a taxi driver have afforded it , Fuckback to your benefits hostel. Free wifi is such a plus for you.

@Norrin Radd, Bali it is all to easy for Westerners.
Its like folk who say they have travelled
It is all to easy. Get on plane in Europe and jump off in Australia,NZ,US;Singapore Bali etc it all looks & feels exactly the same ...no adventure there at all, boring.
May as well just take flight from London and get off in Manchester.

I hiked to the top Mount Rinjani but its to touristic comparedvto the other islands volcanos

Good for the pound - Yes if you manufacture goods in the UK (from Sterling derived raw material) which accounts for almost no one.
Probably a total disaster for anyone wanting to go skiing for the following reasons.
1. It seems quite possible that Sterling would hit parity with the US$ & the same for the Euro.
2. Expected to be taxed to the hilt, so you won't be able to afford to go.
My bet is a coalition government formed by Corben, Sturgeon and Farron would be a total and utter disaster, probably verging cataclysmic!

I can only assume that the Financial Sector are so worried about the potential damage caused by a Hard Brexit, or "No Deal is better than a Bad Deal", that they would rather have Labour's more conciliatory approach, where No Deal won't happen and "Jobs and the Economy" are given more priority.

Finance is not covered under the WTO, which is making them decidedly nervous....as Passporting and the ability to easily access talent from Europe, is essential to their industry.

How many times are we going to see the anti-Conservatives bang on about " you can't say 'no deal is better than a bad deal' ? FFS all of you: you may know that you want a deal, but you never Say you want a deal.

Think of the car show room.
Walk in and say: I'm leaving with a car, no matter what: so how much discount you going to give me? and the salesman will give you ... list price. And do their utmost to charge you for extras

Walk in and say - I like it, but I will walk out without a car unless you bring the price down... s/he'll bring the price down (within allowed scope). And chances are good that you'll walk out with a car.

And yet everyone chooses to take this as stick to beat TM with.

YOU know better, the Politicos know better, (and almost certainly the salesman, aka EU know this) but a good proportion of the great unwashed don't, and so are swayed by this BS - "she said it's hard brexit" it's the end of the world". No. it is a political stunt for party gain, and I for one am fed up with it.

Yes, TM has screwed up royally in the campaigning - I'm severely disappointed in their performance. But to walk into exit negotiations saying in effect "we must have this, we're not leaving without it, and to get it we'll pay whatever you ask" ?

You're all mad.

I particularly like Farrons "we'll have a referendum on the deal and if we don't like it we'll stay" 🙄 Might as well say "please give us the worst deal possible, then everything will go back the way it was".

@Arctic Roll, It depends on how bad you see "No Deal" being for the UK.

IMO. "If" both sides know that it would be disastrous, then the threat is meaningless....and yes I know that is about perspective.

I think it's better to concentrate on what the UK brings to the table and how it will benefit the EU, rather than issuing threats...but I'm probably wrong. Very Happy

You're not completely "fed up" with it, as you're posting here.

If you're a Brexiteer, then I suppose your car showroom analogy makes sense, because you think that walking away from the market is a credible concept.
Brexiteers think that the salesman doesn't know that if you don't have that car you're going to have to walk home, and it's a very long way.
They also think that the Trump showroom down the road will give them a good deal.

--
I don't think it matters either way, because there's simply no up side.
It's not going back the way it was.

On the plus side, maybe we can get Irish, Northern Irish, or Scottish passports.
And like Trump I'd like to see the end of British people "punching above their weight". Why should anyone have that right.

I don't think we're mad to think that the EU negotiators will fairly quickly see through the we're prepared to walk away with nothing gambit. She hasn't put up a shred of evidence to show what BE Day +1 looks like if we do hard Brexit - that would be more powerful in a negotation don't you think than a simple bluff? Now I surmise that is because it is truly too scary for the public to respond to in any way that looks good for her. There still seems to be a belief that we the British invented negotiation and that simply by saying she is good at it that's enough to qualify someone for the job. It's not even convincing BS and she looks shifty when she says it.

When she got the nod as PM I was actually quite pleased because she seemed to be waaay better than the alternatives. Now, even with my antipathy toward Gove, I wonder whether he wouldn't have been a smarter choice for the good of us all.

ROI could be badly hit by Brexit due to cross border trade.... particularly if there is no deal, as it needs co-operation over the border. NI could be hit worse though....I live on the border and already see companies setting up offices in ROI, or moving completely. The whole thing is a mess.

"No deal" simply equates to mutual default to trade upon WTO tariffs (with no provision for services). Since WTO terms would effectively form the starting point in a future trade deal negotiation, difficult to envisage anything inferior (i.e. some supposed "bad deal") being actually proposed by, let alone acceptable to either party, which makes that whole slogan look absurd.

....and it doesn't help that we have few, if any trade negotiators, as we haven't had to negotiate any trade deal since before 1973. The EU has all the expertise.

Hmm, not so good there, ROI likely less able to absorb trading disruption than the larger EU economies, even if short-run. If the stage of talks on a trade deal are actually reached, it'll be a small miracle in its own right, since that means the first phase issues i.e. citizens' rights, exit bill methodology and crucially, the Irish border issues, will all have been dealt with to the EU's satisfaction.
