brokenbiscuits: Iwanted to move to the UK, and had designs on doing so, before Brexit. Friends there were upset that it passed but assured me things weren't going to go to shiat so I kept up working on finding a good job over there. But then... Something told me to put it on hold and see how it pans out.

I'm glad I did. I'm either going to start looking in the EU or wait a couple years and see if the UK unfarks itself, which I'm not holding my breath for.


What are your concerns as a foreigner coming into Britain? The biggest loss to the British people was "freedom of movement" which you wouldn't have been eligible for anyways. Thanks to the combination of Brexit and Covid, wage inflation is going nuts right now. One of the guys who was working for me in London just jumped from £80k to £120k and had multiple competing offers.

If you're happy being poor because you take anti-UK sentiment to heart on Fark, good for you, but typically I would suggest you try to separate your finances and life goals from your political persuasion...

nah he just pretends he can't see all the dozens of negative stories about brexit.

To be fair, he has commented on some negative stories, and acknowledges they're bad for England - he just tries to spin them as the EU being a "bully" and how evil we are for supporting them!

Like the EU requiring British passport holders to use the immigration/visitor queue for non-EU country, instead of the express queue for EU citizens.  In his mind, this is a retaliatory action against the British, rather than just applying the rules consistently.   It doesn't matter that it's something that everyone *knew* would happen (because *duh* Brits aren't members of the EU anymore) we're all evil for supporting the evil bully.


Strange, we have invoked all the right bait and someone still isn't responding.
1) Minimum wage abuse.
2) EU lorries.
3) Panama Papers conspiracy theory.
4) UK business model failures.
5) Empty supermarket shelves.
6) Even the passport queue.

Interestingly, I think he is the owner of a Manchester gay bar. Bar Pop (pop). It's on Canal Street, the big gay area in Manchester (so well known that the "C" of Canal Street is usually rubbed out on the street sign).

Murkanen: Barricaded Gunman: How does voting away your staff and suppliers equate with voting "as a businessman," exactly?

You haven't met a lot of business men I take it.

There's a reason why most businesses fold like a lawn chair before their 5th year.


If only he'd made the decision as a top level CEO, then he could have had a golden parachute to softly land him in another CEO position.

[Fark user image 653x367]

nah he just pretends he can't see all the dozens of negative stories about brexit.


To be fair, he has commented on some negative stories, and acknowledges they're bad for England - he just tries to spin them as the EU being a "bully" and how evil we are for supporting them!

Like the EU requiring British passport holders to use the immigration/visitor queue for non-EU country, instead of the express queue for EU citizens.  In his mind, this is a retaliatory action against the British, rather than just applying the rules consistently.   It doesn't matter that it's something that everyone *knew* would happen (because *duh* Brits aren't members of the EU anymore) we're all evil for supporting the evil bully.

Vacation Bible School: rosekolodny: wademh: thatguyoverthere70: He said he voted for brexit as a business man. serious question: what did he think was going to happen?

You see, when a businessman votes, he acts like an idiot and does stupid things that he thinks are smart because he imagines himself smart because he's a businessman. There's a special cloak you wear, you get them and Dunning and Kruger's department store. It's like a cloak of invisibility but the wearer wears it as a cloak of invulnerability bestowed upon them by the Sacred Royal Order of Businessmen.

My mother voted for trump because "he's a businessman."

There's no explaining to her that even if he were a good businessman - which he is not - I don't want my country run like a business.

Being a con artist is a kind of business.


None of you sound very "bootstrappy" to me.

DrD'isInfotainment: Change my mind.


Your mind doesn't need changing. Well, except that England changed a heck of a lot when they canceled the Atlantic slave trade, and were defeated later in the Boer War. The Pirate Nation was defeated by Gandhi's nonviolence and Kwame Nkrumah's Ghana. Maybe the Mau-Mau rebellion in Kenya is a high-water mark for England's upper class twits' attempt to use despicably exotic torture and slavery to maintain its pirate empire. It was also a high-water mark for decolonization when blood seeped out from the dirt beide the roadway that led to Kenya' slave-labour airport, ensuring that England would never be able to maintain any of their assets through piracy ever again (nobody will be their slave).

The "minimum wage" workers from the Continent probably never had the opportunity to read about England's decolonization horrors. However, many of them, like the Polish underclass, probably knew that England would treat them like migrant non-person, the same way they let the Nazis, then the Soviets, take over. But thoe Poles also knew the EU would offer them some protection, but the Polish diillusionment with the EU (and liberal democracy in general) could be connected to their failure to get England to treat Poles like real persons.

Shaggy_C: brokenbiscuits: Iwanted to move to the UK, and had designs on doing so, before Brexit. Friends there were upset that it passed but assured me things weren't going to go to shiat so I kept up working on finding a good job over there. But then... Something told me to put it on hold and see how it pans out.

I'm glad I did. I'm either going to start looking in the EU or wait a couple years and see if the UK unfarks itself, which I'm not holding my breath for.

What are your concerns as a foreigner coming into Britain? The biggest loss to the British people was "freedom of movement" which you wouldn't have been eligible for anyways. Thanks to the combination of Brexit and Covid, wage inflation is going nuts right now. One of the guys who was working for me in London just jumped from £80k to £120k and had multiple competing offers.

If you're happy being poor because you take anti-UK sentiment to heart on Fark, good for you, but typically I would suggest you try to separate your finances and life goals from your political persuasion...

I'd mock them without mercy, but as about a quarter of us voted for Trump, it's hard to claim a lot of moral high ground - our short-sighted, nationalistic idiots are dumber than their short-sighted, nationalistic idiots.

The only real difference is that we have the opportunity to reverse our idiocy every four years. They're screwed for rather a much longer time.

NIgel will propose that "EU venture capitalists" buy up all the pubs/hotels, including their holding companies so that the typical "European" will come to England instead of his dacha.

No, not the worst. Most of the businessmen in UK voted for Brexit. Most of them are still in denial about its reprocussions. This guy at least is started to recognize it was his own fault.
