Are you still trying to change the subject?, just to put a point across, the 1947 agreement was us upholding our end in an agreement that folk fighting and many dying, plus families in the second world war would be granted a British passport. Or am I wrong?

I don't mind being wrong, still want to know what this has to do with the yes/no vote?
Governments decide on immigration policy, although I remember being taught that Queen Victoria had said all peoples of the Empire were her children.

The two groups were (a) EU immigrants; (b) non EU immigrants

Below are two sites for comparison - neither of which is the one I saw (and now can't find) but the numbers look about the same

So far,

You tried to insult me.

Didn't work.

Now in desperation you try to insult my sex, why? I'm only one member of that gender and didn't call your gender, a sign of personal weakness on your behalf?

I think perhaps you should come back tomorrow when you can sort through the 'I should have said this', instead of digging a deeper hole.

please come back tomos just say something worthwhile.
lol - I hope you feel better now?

Won't that depend on whom and where we export/import things to/from?

Also any extra cost would be passed on to the buyer.

Exactly as it is now.

Governments can only control those from non EU countries. We have no control over those who want to move here from EU countries...So in effect the government does not have control of its borders.
Turkey are being fast tracked into the EU.....this allows all of their citizens to have free movement in the EU countries.....including the UK.

I would assume it to be negligible, as we've already been members since 75, all the relevant form filling & compliances have been achieved therefore the only additional guff would be due to eu spitefulness.

That said though, if they start jerking us about, as an independent, sovereign trading nation we could do the same to them & then some! As their need of us will be far greater than our need of them as we'll be opening trade agreements elsewhere & on our terms .......

Roll on "Out!", June 23rd.

Don't mention plums, we lost most of the natural growers of such back in '74 now we have MEP'S telling us how many we can grow and what shape they should be if we want to put them into production!

I suspect that if you put your mind to it, you could claim any plums you wanted, there wouldn't be a bloke brave enough to refuse you taking them as your own!

Less, I am pretty sure you are right...but I would do it in such a way as to have the bloke surrender them gracefully and with gratitude to me, for relieving him of them
After all, they are only a burden.

Congratulations you have been nominated for the AccyWeb 2016 most butch award.

Since you are being spurious…Let me pose an equally pointless question: How much extra paper and printing ink will be needed for this documentation? How many staples and paper clips? Will these items be produced in this country, and if so will this extra documentation create jobs?? Or will we need to create some kind of trade deal (see what I did there?)??? Will this paper be recycled? Will this increase the value of recycled paper and will this have a knock on effect in reducing my council tax because I recycle my paper?? Will the increased jobs create more tax and a richer country??.......etc….etc…etc…
Nonsensical questions are simple to create
