The EU saying the UK is being "disrespectful" actually means "Whahhh! They're not just giving in and agreeing to everything we demand!"

For four years Farkers have been telling me we can't have benefits of the EU without the obligations. Can't have benefits of the club if you're not in the club.

But now the EU is demanding it keeps EU membership benefits and powers over the UK even after the UK leaves.

So why is it suddenly okay for them to demand benefits without obligations?

Does this make sense in your head? The EU keeps EU membership benefits because it's the EU. The UK is not. I'm not sure why this isn't settling in with you.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Translation from Brexiter to English.

BoJo is unhappy because the EU won't cave into his demands to get to have full access to the EU market without following EU standards and accepting ECJ adjucation of trade disputes.


So why did the EU agree free trade deals with Canada, Japan and South Korea without demanding fishing rights, following EU standards and EU court and parliament jurisdiction?

/In trade, and free trade deals, you have to follow the other countries standards for the stuff you want to export to them. So Canada, for example, has to obey EU food laws for the beef it exports to the EU and isn't allowed to send chlorine washed beef because EU law doesn't allow that.
But Canada is still free to sell that chlorine washed beef within Canada. The law only applies to the actual goods they export to the EU.

What the EU is demanding from the UK is that the UK remains under EU law fully, including inside the UK. Not just the stuff it exports to the EU. They are demanding the UK remains under EU laws, including any new EU laws, within the UK, even for companies and people that don't do any business with any EU country.

So why has the EU given full access to the EU market to those countries without demanding those concessions? If the EU demanded Canada accepted the same deal Canada would be banned from selling chlorine washed beef within Canada.(Now with chlorine washed beef you might think that would be a good thing, and I'd probably agree. But it is the principle that a countries laws should be made by that countries government and that countries Parliament.)

This is not "accepting ECJ adjucation of trade disputes" as you claim. This is accepting EU court power and jurisdiction over the UK, over laws in the UK that every UK citizen and company have to obey.  You are minimising what the EU are demanding either through ignorance or in a deliberate attempt to portray the UK as the unreasonable one.  Laws like the way the EU ordered the UK to charge sales tax on tampons. Or to stop selling red diesel to boat owners. Women and boat owners in the UK have to pay more tax because the EU court ordered the UK to charge that tax. Where the hell did you get the idea that the EU only wanted their court to "adjudicate trade disputes"? They are demanding that the EU Parliament and Court gets to make laws that everyone in the UK will have to obey.

And again, why is the EU allowed to demand it keeps benefits of the club from the UK even after the UK has left the club? Why are they allowed to demand the benefits without the obligations? Why do those Farkers who have spent the last four years telling me you can't have the benefits without the obligations now say nothing when it is the EU demanding that exact thing?

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: But now the EU is demanding it keeps EU membership benefits and powers over the UK even after the UK leaves.

So why is it suddenly okay for them to demand benefits without obligations?

Does this make sense in your head? The EU keeps EU membership benefits because it's the EU. The UK is not. I'm not sure why this isn't settling in with you.


They are demanding they keep full access to UK fishing rights. They got those rights when the UK joined the EU. Shouldn't that mean they should lose them when the UK leaves?

The relevant part of my quote is "But now the EU is demanding it keeps EU membership benefits and powers over the UK even after the UK leaves"

You think it reasonable for the EU to demand fishing rights over a non-EU member country? Should they demand full access to US fishing waters? Would that be fair? The USA isn't in the EU. But neither is the UK now. So what's the difference? They are demanding membership rights over a country that is no longer a member. How is that reasonable? They're very quick to kick the UK out of things when it suits them, like Galileo, but then turn around and cherry pick things it wants to keep and demand we agree.

/And it isn't even "access" they are demanding. They are demanding control. They are demanding that they can carry on telling the UK how much fish we are allowed to catch. In our own waters.

Have you tried not being an illogical waste of blood and organs?


Have you tried actually discussing the facts?

Because every time someone resorts to nothing but personal attacks I have to conclude they know I'm right and can't think of any argument.

"Fishing in their waters"? WTF? We're talking about fishing in UK waters. That is the whole point.

And again, see my point about Canada and their beef exports above. You have to deal with a countries courts with the stuff you send them. The EU is demanding their parliament and courts carry on making and enforcing laws within the UK. Canada didn't agree to that. Japan didn't. South Korea didn't. You can bet the USA wouldn't have.

In fact, can you name any free trade deal anywhere where anyone has agreed to something like this?

You're a larf. You mean the same EU that was saying that they would deal on fish, but that would mean that the UK (since they want access to EU waters) would have to meet calculate fishing rights as if they were an EU member? You don't get to have your haddock and eat it too, and neither does Boris. All that the UK would have to do is completely drop any request for fishing rights to EU waters and then Boris' team could say fishing rights are off the table, as they aren't asking for any.

Granted that wouldn't end all of the foreign fishing rights, in particular the rights granted by the English crown in perpetuity to others, but it would take fishing rights off the table currently for Brexsh*t.

However this is all a moot point because we all know from the Daily Dogmatist that a no-deal, bowel, and bowl breaking, hard Brexsh*t will be the best Brexsh*t.

Economically or politically?

because everyone seems to be focussing on purely short term economic terms.

If you told me, with 100% guaranteed proof, that Brexit would mean the UK would have (say) GDP growth 1% lower for the next 100 years then I'd have still voted for it. It would be a price worth paying.

When Americans declared independence from England do you think anyone was saying "But think of the hit to our GDP!"?  (Yes, we're not a colony of the EU. But we're also not resorting to armed revolution either)

The point is this is about democracy, sovereignty.

Let Tony Benn explain it.


/And personally in the medium and long term I do think we'll be better off. The hysterical predictions of doom made by Remainers before the referendum have already been proved wrong. We were supposed to be in a full recession by the end of 2016 remember?

You need a new schtick, because it's not even convincing anymore.

The British can have their fishing rights, as soon as they relinquish all rights outside their territorial waters. They won't have anywhere to sell their mackerel, but them's the breaks. They'll lose access to the majority of waters around Eire, but them's the breaks. They'll no longer able to get scallops from the French waters, but them's the breaks. No more access to Icelandic cod waters, but them's the breaks. I mean they can exit the CFP, and then negotiate separately, but they'll have to lose access to everything first, and I doubt the British fishing industry will be in good shape by the time the Tories finally scratch out a deal.

Besides this is all moot.Brexsh*teers said the EU would be begging London for a deal. Begging, unable to resist, bowing before the might of little britain.

Carter Pewterschmidt: Flappyhead: Carter Pewterschmidt: .

And again, see my point about Canada and their beef exports above. You have to deal with a countries courts with the stuff you send them. The EU is demanding their parliament and courts carry on making and enforcing laws within the UK. Canada didn't agree to that. Japan didn't. South Korea didn't. You can bet the USA wouldn't have.

In fact, can you name any free trade deal anywhere where anyone has agreed to something like this?

It's called hardball, and the UK picked it as the game to play.  That means you don't get to cry when the other team starts pitching inside.

We don't have to. We can just walk away, and the EU won't get any of the things it is demanding. Those fishing rights revert back to us automatically. And we've been quietly building up our patrol boats....


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I love how you think that's a one way street.

Brokenseas: Almost 3 in the morning on Saturday in London and Von Ribbentrop is hammering away at the keyboard in the poli tab.

Pathetic.


You think he actually lives in London? People speak, and type, from the environment they grew up in as children. Von Ribbentrop, er Carter, talks of being born in Canada, raised in Switzerland, et al., but has none of the colloquialisms from any of those cultures. His diction, colloquialisms, are not of the continent nor of little britain. I pegged him as a graduate I'd US schools long ago. People who went to school in Switzerland, even an International school, would have a completely different structure to their language.

He's just a troll that needs a new schtick.

Carter Pewterschmidt: The EU saying the UK is being "disrespectful" actually means "Whahhh! They're not just giving in and agreeing to everything we demand!"

For four years Farkers have been telling me we can't have benefits of the EU without the obligations. Can't have benefits of the club if you're not in the club.

But now the EU is demanding it keeps EU membership benefits and powers over the UK even after the UK leaves.

So why is it suddenly okay for them to demand benefits without obligations?


You understand that in any negotiations there is give and take? Right?

Just saw you on Family Guy and was the opposite of star struck.
Maybe at least one of us should take you seriously?

I gave a clear answer, and backed it up with the views of a very senior ex minister who worked with and in the EU.

And your response?

BoJo's Brexit will benefit Britain.
True or false?
Single word answer.
Do try this time.


So you're still ignoring my answer?

Okay, lets do this one step at a time.

When you say "benefit" do you mean economically or politically? Short term or long term?

Or do you actually think it reasonable to reduce a hugely complex issue to a Yes or No answer? There will be lots of benefits and some negatives, as with any such issue. If I had to make a simple yes or no answer I'd say True. Happy?

And I once offered to speak to you on the phone but you rejected that claiming I "could easily fake a British accent".  So it's impossible to fake ones nationality in written comments but easy when speaking in person? That's a rather bizarre claim.

And if one side is making unreasonable demands the other side is free to walk away. There is no law saying both sides MUST make a deal.

Absolutely. And if the UK is happy to sacrifice financial passporting rights, for a few fishermen, so be it.

Really Carter just go look at the Brits pulling cod out of Icelandic waters, or scallops from French waters (to name just two) which they can because of the CFP. They want to lock everyone else out, they have to exit the CFP. This isn't rocket science, and is amongst your worst trolling attempts.

By the by, *I* can fake an accent from Manchester passably enough for people in London to be fooled by the inflections. However I can't fake the colloquialisms in my speech or the written word. Heck I can sound like a native born Finn, except my colloquialisms wouldn't match. Same for sounding like someone from Vlissingnen.

But they want to exit the CFP. That is the whole problem. The UK want to leave, but the EU are demanding they get to keep their control and their access to our waters after we leave.

I've asked twice now for you to back up your claim that the UK wants to keep access to EU waters.

Can you? Or are you going to admit you just made that up?

Because it looks like you are just so convinced that the EU is wonderful and reasonable that when faced with evidence of them making an unreasonable demand you just refuse to accept it. It can't be right! The EU is the reasonable one, so their demand must be reasonable! It can only be the UK being unreasonable!

So you then try to find or make up an explanation that proves the EU is being reasonable and come up with "The UK wants to keep access to EU waters".

You don't base your opinions on facts. You are basing your "facts" on your pre existing opinions. You're doing the exact same thing Trump supporters do when shown evidence Trump lied.

So I guess all those Hollywood movie stars paid millions to fake an accent, with the help of extensive voice coaching, working from a script and with the ability to do multiple takes, who still cock it up are just not as good as you are then?
Top 10 Worst Fake British Accents in Movies

Hell, even British actress Jane Leeves couldn't fake a different British accent in Frasier.  Sure, there are some who can, James Marsters in Buffy is a good one, but for you to claim it is something anyone can easily do is laughable.

And you clearly aren't as good as you think, because I have spent about three weeks total in the USA in my entire life. My guess is that since this is a mainly American site I will use Americanisms, saying vacation instead of holiday, for example, that you noticed that once and that is the entire basis for your false claims.

Plus of course, the main reason....

You claim I'm not who I say I am to distract from the fact that you aren't actually discussing the facts. You either hope everyone will be distracted and not notice you're changing the subject or you are suggesting that if I'm not who I say I am then my comments are invalid.

If you actually had facts and evidence on your side you'd be more than happy to stick to the topic. But since you haven't you're trying to use personal attacks as a distraction.

Carter it's easy enough, they just refuse to continue, and *BANG*, they're out. Of course the British fishing industry will die. Better get used to fish and chip prices going through the roof at chippies, maybe they can switch to mackerel. Why? When they leave CFP, they will only have coastal waters. As far as wanting access to EU (and Icelandic) waters, that's proven by the fact they just don't exit CFP. Nothing the EU (or Iceland) can do can make them stay in the CFP. They'd devolve to UN fishery status, which is 12 miles if I remember proper. You'd better ask the UK fishing industry if they'll give up the French coast and Icelandic cod waters. Keep in mind, before you try to bluster a response of bullshiat, the "Cod Wars" were real and existed before the EU or CFP.

As far as accents, jesuchristo you are a dense troll. Anyone who has studied multiple languages with native speakers can fake an accent. What you can't fake is the colloquialisms, the idiosyncrasies, of a local language. Using actors is lazy and inefficient. Let's take Brad Pitt whose accent in The Devil's Own was about as phoned in as you can get, he didn't give a shiat. Then take Hugh Laurie who actually fooled the director (Bryan Singer) for House, and he thought he was doing poorly.
