What I don't understand  is that the EU has amassed millions of pounds of assets, helped paid for by us over the last 40 years. They have a million pound wine cellar, properties,  and a money pot. Why are we not asking for our share back in the negotiations, as you would in any divorce, probably then we would owe them nothing.

No Germany and France know they are the only counties who will have to make up the deficit when we LEAVE, so that is why they are making it so hard. Do you think if one of the members who pay nothing in, wanted to leave, they would be so b minded.

Think we have to stand our ground, don't know if T May can hack it.

 

I see that EU accounts have not been signed off since 1994. Not a very ethical organisation in my humble opinion!

Maybe The A-Z can be removed from the recent posts list somehow. This could allow other topics to remain recent for longer and may create more interest in participating.  I often pop in to see what's happening and maybe contribute but do get tired of seeing a stream of A-Z comments. I then pop right back out again rather than starting a thread which will be drowned in A-Z within a few hours.

 

Is it possible to leave a particular section out of the recent list? Namely A-Z , I am certain regular players would still be able to find it.

Good idea Tigger K, if it's possible.  Although I think that TT looked into it before and there was some reason why it wasn't available at that time.

I did mention it to Stuart in the beginning about mulitiple headings for the same thread being tiresome , one title per thread is usual on most other forums. I think Stuart looked into it but not possible on this sites current set up, I think was  the answer 🙂

Hi all, and welcome Tigger K,
I have asked the question again last week and there seems no way to actually filter recent posts, you can setup up notifications from other threads which would send you Daily Emails when a new post is made in any given thread. Unfortunately, i don't know the scripting language used in the back end of the forum otherwise would try myself.
I have however requested that a programmer do it privately at cost as i know how much of a nuisance it is..
I'll have another look today and have attached a picture of their response from my post to them a few days ago.
Regards
Stuart

Thanks Lis!

Regarding 'Brexit', I don't understand all the machinations, that seem to be going on!!

If someone wants to leave a club...................they leave!! They may have to give in their notice, or stay to the end of the year to get their money's worth, but they don't get fined!!

Come on Dave B, you usually have a comment on this sort of thing! (Much enjoyed, I must admit!!)

At the moment Maureen I tend to do a lot of head scratching, like you I find it very difficult to understand why it all seems to have got so complicated. As far as trade goes we keep being told by the nay sayers that we sell far more to the EU, 27 other countries, than they sell to us and always in percentage terms. But when you look at the actual figures in 2015 UK exports to the EU were valued at £223.3 billion, while UK imports from the EU stood at £291.1 billion. For countries outside the EU, UK exports that year were valued at £288.2 billion, while imports were worth £257.1 billion.

So not hard to see where our trade deficit is coming from.

Figures from Office of National Statistics

Well now it's contributions to pensions. 22, 000 retired EU mps cost 67.2 billion a year, over 30,000 each a year for very little work. It's nice work if you can get it.

I see we have been told we are not entitled to any rebate for all the assets we have paid for. Talk about one-sided. Think we must call their bluff and say we're off, sort yourselves out. We know they're desperate for as much money now as they won't get it from anyone  else once we LEAVE. 

Shows how feckless they are to say 20 billion is peanuts.

For anyone looking for local news worth talking about, you could probably do worse than check out In Your Area

This particular link will take you to a site that has aggregated news plus listings of local events, Notices, Property, Shop and Services Opening times and quite a bit more.

just clicked link thanks. This year they say 210, 000 people viewed the air show, but it still lost £35,000. What a disgrace, surly £1 per head in the buckets would not bankrupt any one. No this is " I want it for nothing generation " 

Time for a rethink. The air show is not free , it costs us the residents money from our council tax.

I'm still reeling from that flippant and obnoxious "Thanks for the war" comment.

Being but a simple soul, I always believed that Trade deals were supposed to be mutually beneficial. With the outrageous demands of the EU before they will even discuss a trade deal, I really do not understand why we are still actually talking to them.

Given previous comments by some of the EU's negotiators that 'The UK must be taught a lesson' for having the audacity to think of ditching them, an obvious blackmail tactic for all of the member states. I just do not understand why we continue to kowtow to an organisation that has more in common with the mafia than any sort of legal government.

Rose - Like you, I found the comments both gratuitous and offensive, but then when you spend most of your waking hours in a drunken haze, not really a surprise. There is something ironic about the comment when you put it against the rapid industrial rise of Germany after the war due in no small part to the UK and the USA.

The idea that the EU has kept peace in Europe since the last war is in itself a joke, given the various genocides and conflicts over the last few decades

This Youtube post makes interesting listening

I'm praying that the plan is for the UK to act the part of the underdog until the EU demands become so absurd that no-one in their right mind would accept them.  Or maybe the Government is waiting for Juncker's liver to pack up.
