Brexit studies not what you think – Davis

Brexit studies not what you think – Davis:

David Davis had a choice between either admitting to willing destroy the country,
or being seen as a lying incompetent fool. 

He choose the later.

Good call!

UK.gov: Snoop laws not ‘significant’ obstacle to EU data protection talks

UK.gov: Snoop laws not ‘significant’ obstacle to EU data protection talks:

First of all, even if the UK provides adequate safeguards, which is doubtful given the GCHQ revelations over the last years, it still wouldn’t be an automatic member of Privacy Shield. It would have to formally request membership by both the EU and US. Keeping in mind that the US has proven to be considerably less forthcoming of giving the UK ‘a good deal’

And Secondly, by the time the UK leaves the EU, it is questionable if Privacy Shield will still exit. It offers little in improvement over Safe Harbour agreement previously overturned by the EUCJ.

What that means is that it will be illegal for any company to store sensitive data of US or EU citizens on UK soil. All data must be stored and handled in facilities in countries part of the agreement.

So in words that Brexiteers might understand. Good bye to your IT industry, or around 8% of the UK’s entire GDP.

REVEALED: The scariest chart in the world when it comes to Brexit negotiations

REVEALED: The scariest chart in the world when it comes to Brexit negotiations:

The article refers to data provided by M&G Investments

Nothing new or surprising about this data, after all the EU has preferred trade deals with 2/3 of the plant. What is interesting is that this was published in the “Daily Express”, an extremely pro-Brexit tabloid. Mostly known for it’s extremely xenophobic views.

Wondering if this slow change of mind, might have something to do with this data?

The WTO Option and its application to Brexit

The WTO Option and its application to Brexit:

unknownpoliticalobject:

A very good white paper by the Leave Alliance (@LeaveHQ)


General application

[…]
For the UK to trade with  the EU relying on  the WTO Option would be unique for  a  developed  nation,  creating  an  unprecedented situation.There  is  nothing with which a comparison could be made. 
[…]

Conclusions 

[…]
This   has   considerable   implications   for   how   we   address   the   Article   50 negotiations. The adverse effects of dropping out of the EU Treaties without an alternative  agreement  in  place  are  so  serious  that this  is  not  something  any responsible person would want to consider. 

Since “Mr Davis told the Brexit select committee that publishing the analysis could undermine the national interest.” (Source http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-41749270 ) I thought I re-post this white paper originally published by LeaveHQ. you might want to keep a copy of it http://www.eureferendum.com/documents/BrexitMonograph002.pdf for when the time comes where they will inevitable scream that they didn’t know any better. And before you shout bias, remember this was done by the people who campaigned “for” Brexit

You can also read the one commissioned by the European Union around the same time: ISBN 978-92-79-54339-5 But it is much longer and full of numbers and facts, and I was told both are things that confuse Brexiteers.
