    You cannot possibly be stupid enough to think you have a point there when you have been able to buy cricket powder protein for years in the U.K.

    I dunno, mealworms and crickets are really quite nice, like super crunchy crisps or something. More of an accompaniment than a main event though, prawns are just sea crickets at the end of the day, no?

    And that's before you even consider they're hyper-sustainable and a serious part of the solution to the climate crisis.

    I have never bought any, didn't fancy it.
    I prefer to get my protein from other mammals rather than crustaceans and insects and worms. I pity the Europeans many will be eating these bugs without knowing it as the cricket powder can now be added to flour.
    The Europeans are cruel and barbaric savages just think how many lives will be sacrificed to make just one loaf of bread will probably be in the 1000,s, they will have blood on their hands.
    I can't belive you are condoning such barbaric behaviour pinman.

    Bye bye tax revenue.
    Yes, London is no longer the financial capital of Europe

    This is by far your weakest attempt at gaslighting.

    Let's get back to actual Brexit benefits shall we?

    UK is forecast to be the only major economy to shink in 2023 (IMF), accountable to a sizeable gap in the required work force through lack of EU migration and early retirements.

    No-one else is suffering that.



    Bloomberg finds that Brexit is costing the uk 100 BILLION a year in lost growth. The pro-Brexit Telegraph is even reporting it

    Benefits please?

    Nah I'm kidding, there are none, we're 28 pages in, I'm just here for the banter.

    Seems chief Brexit negotiator David Frost has seen this thread, he posted up the benefits this morning on Twitter. He was that confident he was correct that he didnt allow any replies.



    By my reckoning 1,2, 3, 7, 8 and 10 could all have been done inside the EU. Shipping people off to Rwanda, pumping shit into rivers and destroying the fishing industry are not really benefits, Ive not seen any happy farmers and the net benefit of Free trade agreements is about as much as whats down the back of my sofa, we have lost 25bn in EU trade though.
    Im not sure about the 10bn a year (I am, its a false number) but the cost so far is estimated at -36Bn along with the 100bn a year in lost growth.

    Blue passports though eh?

    Never mind that half of them aren't rateble lol. How is an 'alcohol duty change' a benefit, in what way?

    Edit - and just a casual +/- 5 BILLION tolerance in his figures

    The alcohol duty means wine is going up. We are going to look to make lower alcohol versions to beat it.
