Re: Brexit....or in.

And so your point is I've somehow been "Carole Cadwalladr'd" by not knowing that a story that you were referring to that I haven't read was written by her, because I don't have an FT subscription...? No. You were quick to dismiss the FT article as having an ulterior motive, even though you hadn't r...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Well it's nice to know that you have absolutely no idea what you're on about, in any case. :shrug: *adds RTT to ignore list* Oh, except you can't, because you can't add administrators to that. What a shame. :kiss: I'll take it you don't know the connection between Cadwalladr and the Byline story th...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Who knows cause I don't have an FT subscription. I can't imagine them being keen on publically broadcasting any pros or cons on shorting the pound in an environment of manipulation though..... Carole Cadwalladr'd. Is an investigative journalist that I don't particularly agree with? You do know what...

Re: Brexit....or in.

How have we gone from predictions of leaving causing mass economic failure to leaving helping the rich get richer? You don't need to go into the detail the FT went in to to realise it doesn't make a great deal of sense. I don't see how we've gone from one to the other, it's always been both. You se...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Don’t economic failures regularly benefit the wealthy if they’re prepared for them? They step in and hoover up depressed stocks. I wouldn't say so. A handful of opportunists may look to take advantage, but as a general rule, "the wealthy" will make more money from a growing economy than one that is...

Re: Brexit....or in.

But regardless I think it would be naive to think there isn't a vested interest in Brexit and a no deal version of it where capitalist gain is concerned. What I find most bizarre about this sort of argument is that the EU is a capitalist project. How have we gone from predictions of leaving causing...

Re: Brexit....or in.

For something written in 1997, some of this seems awfully close to the bone. The Foundations of Geopolitics Interesting. I guess the question is how much Russia has influenced and how much was going to happen anyway. Back in 97, Germany was already establishing de facto political dominance in Europ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Interesting. Though it amuses me that it’s not a verified account and could well be some bored 14 year old winding up all the genuine players. :D If it is a 14-year old, then a) they've gone to a lot of work to set it up , and b) they're going to be a prime target for the bullies at school... TBH, ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Which was why it was always stupid for the EU to keep saying May's deal was the only negotiated deal. This is clearly just paving the way for a softer exit with the UK remaining in the single market should Labour win a GE. Did you read the follow up posts (was going to put them up, but it seemed a ...
