I'm not a huge fan of Dr. Steve Turley's style of presentation, but his observations and assessments viz a viz Brexit, Europe and the EU strike me as being pretty much spot on . . .

Good find, along the same lines as my #8922 (y)

"The comparison by Mr Soros is very apt. The EU is similar in structure to the USSR, is an ideological construction that cannot provide prosperity & jobs, destroys freedoms, & is increasingly unwanted by its citizens. It is consigning itself to oblivion."

Hey Att, where is all this growth in the EU that you promised us? I can't find it probably cos it doesn't exist and never did exist. Money printing to stimulate the economy is not growth. It is simply misappropriation of capital, which the taxpayer will have to pick up the bill.

All those bailouts that the Northern Europeans are on the hook for. All those Greek companies that the Germans obtained as part of the Greek bailout, lots of risk with little upside if any.

Can’t see it ending well and with Soros and his ideology in panic mode it’s starting to look like a perfect storm.

I’m not rejoicing because it will affect us all at some point but there is pain ahead for current and future leaders. Only 10 years from the crash and we are heading for another.

Go to cash

I'm not sure whether this has really anything to do with Brexit but an image has been coming to my mind on a regular basis for the last couple of years and that is the old joke/hoax "100% guaranteed fly-killer" small ad - as a minor digression, I remember my father telling me that this was current during his school days in the 1920s, so it's been around for a fair while - anyways, this 100% guaranteed fly-killer was a mail-order job and having sent off one's payment, one would receive by post a small package that contained two small wooden blocks and a very very small instruction note, which read: " Place fly you wish to kill on one block and then bring the other block smartly down on the first - kills flies stone dead, 100% guaranteed or your money back". It was good for a brief laugh.

I'm not sure who's been conned but in the current context it seems to me to be everybody.....just without the laugh.

I await reception of said small packet.

Can you point me to the post where I said it was?
By carefully crafting your post associating “how many times do we have to say.....oh look it was nothing to do with Brexit after all!’ with the scrapping of the A380 you certainly imply it.

Mind you, that’s just the sort of corkscrewing of the facts that I expect.

Well done, you spotted your deliberate mistake :ROFLMAO:

Appearing to implying something and stating something definitively are different, but hey, in the context of this thread I'll let you have some comfort that yes I was intending to imply what I implied but at least I have some reasoning for it:

When Airbus ARE in the thick of project fear AND are trying to offload excuses onto Brexit (like many other global corporations), I wonder who is really corkscrewing the facts? I have no doubt that they have known that their A380 orders were to be cancelled for weeks, if not months, it didn't just suddenly appear yesterday, that's not how business operates at this level, there would have been ongoing negotiations to try and save sales, alot of headless chickens amongst the directors. By carefully crafting a series of anti-Brexit releases leading up to this particular item of bad news is just tooooooo coincidental not to imply that they were probably hoping it could be buried under a load of project fear sentiment. The management couldn't find a way to spin the anti-Brexit angle any longer and had to just release the facts, egg on face methinks, fooling no-one methinks, narrative fail methinks.

Unlikely we'll uncover the facts of course, but it's always fun to speculate (y)
