Ramsgate port dredged as no-deal Brexit preparations gather steam

  • Published on Jan 4, 2019
  • The DUP has declared again today that it won't vote for Theresa May's deal, so a disorderly Brexit is becoming a distinct possibility, triggering a frenzy of preparations more akin to times of conflict.
    (Subscribe: bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)
    University leaders warned today that such a Brexit would be catastrophic for research and funding.
    More than 1,000 English and Scottish police officers are being trained for extra duty in case of a hard border on the island of Ireland.
    And then there are the ports being prepped for an armada of emergency ferries.

    Revoking article 50 will cause half the British people to have no confidence in their parliament. MPs know what a vote of no confidence means. If they try to keep us in the EU, they had better prepare for the collapse of parliamentary democracy, and they had better think seriously about what will replace it.

    The fearmongering by pro EU forces around university funding is also prevailent in Switzerland. Both the UK and Switzerland however have leading universities *and* are net payers to the EU. Hence they both do not really need EU money to fund their own research. Also the leading universities willl be able to attract partnerships worldwide, not just in EU countries as they choose.

    The Tory MPs are at odds with the British public that voted to leave. It is said that the vast majority of Tory MPs, does not want to go for a no deal, which is what the country voted for. In that case the British public Must be told, the names of all those that voted against the referendum vote. These MPs have no respect for what the great British voting public voted for.It will soon be time to vote again, at a General Election, and the British public, should have the voting history of all those that put themselves up to serve the electorate, with honesty, and the trust that the people will place in them, because right now, they are about to betray the trust that we placed in them, THIS MUST NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. WE NEED TO KNOW HOW EACH OF THESE TRAITORS VOTED, IN ORDER TO MAKE A CLEAR JUDGMENT, ON JUST WHO TO TRUST ANYMORE.

    Cadbury moved factory to Poland 2011 with EU grant.
    Ford Transit moved to Turkey 2013 with EU grant.
    Jaguar Land Rover has built a new plant in Slovakia with EU grant, owned by Tata, the same company who have trashed our steel works and emptied the workers pension funds.
    Peugeot closed its Ryton (was Rootes Group) plant and moved production to Slovakia with EU grant.
    British Army's new Ajax fighting vehicles to be built in SPAIN using SWEDISH steel at the request of the EU to support jobs in Spain with EU grant, rather than Wales.
    Dyson gone to Malaysia, with an EU loan.
    Crown Closures, Bournemouth (Was METAL BOX), gone to Poland with EU grant, once employed 1,200.
    M&S manufacturing gone to far east with EU loan.
    Hornby models gone. In fact all toys and models now gone from UK along with the patents all with with EU grants.
    Gillette gone to Eastern Europe with EU grant.
    Texas Instruments Greenock gone to Germany with EU grant.
    Indesit at Bodelwyddan Wales gone with EU grant.
    Sekisui Alveo said production at its Merthyr Tydfil Industrial Park foam plant will relocate production to Roermond, with EU funding.
    Hoover Merthyr factory moved out of UK to Czech Republic and the Far East by Italian company Candy with EU backing.
    ICI integration into Holland’s AkzoNobel with EU bank loan and within days of the merger, several factories in the UK, were closed, eliminating 3,500 jobs
    Boots sold to Italians Stefano Pessina who have based their HQ in Switzerland to avoid tax to the tune of £80 million a year, using an EU loan for the purchase.
    JDS Uniphase run by two Dutch men, bought up companies in the UK with £20 million in EU 'regeneration' grants, created a pollution nightmare and just closed it all down leaving 1,200 out of work and an environmental clean-up paid for by the UK tax-payer. They also raided the pension fund and drained it dry.

      Chewits - Wikipedia
      Don't forget that all these major companies in the UK used to support a whole ecosystem of smaller companies. The small companies contained people who could do and make things, like engineers and mechanics. I strongly believe that Britain has been deskilled over the last 44 years.
      Britain should be a better place to manufacture goods than Europe due to our small size, a high population density, excellent road and rail networks, as well as canals as rivers. Every where in the UK is relatively speaking near the sea, compared to other countries for shipping purposes. Once were out we won't have to pay VAT anymore ( although I expect we will ).
      So I say bring on BREXIT. I think there will be some hardship in the short term as we adjust, but after that things are going to start flying along as Britain reboots.
      I am sure the people of Ramsgate are very happy at the prospect of their port reopening, I would be if I lived there.

    The Channel Tunnel is now majority owned by the French. In any case, the company should pay Kent CC demurrage for delays caused by its failure to ensure transit i.e. by pre-booking slots as in any other transit. Clearance is managed at the point of dispatch for export/import to non-EU destinations. The supply chain is a matter and a cost for the companies to resolve; 3/4PL companies are very good at doing so.
    The disused Kent airfield has been a subject for redeployment for many years. It should already have been handed over for housing and SME business facilities. Moreover, Kent taxpayers should not be paying for Channel Tunnel, as a private company, costs. Kent taxpayers should not have their county turned into an unnecessary lorry park.
    Look at Channel Tunnel Company accounts, they are not paying for the lorry-park mess caused by their activity ( or inactivity) and ineffective UK politicians.
    Grayling's actions to date in all his responsibilities show only a focus on his ego and lack of understanding or interest in resolving any matters.
    The "Deal" with Seaborne shows, at best, ignorance in chartering such facilities. More likely there is a real question why a no-operator has been awarded public funds.
    Logistics is not the issue. The companies need to align with the realities of international trade. As they do with non-EU export.
    And the Irish border is a non-issue as there is no intent on any side to build a hard-border. There is no need for such. Take a look at Swiss/EU border...there isn't one. Of course, there is border reporting for specific trade etc as there is across all country borders (inc in Ireland).
    This "Back-stop issue" is a sop that the EU will likely finally agree to enable Ms. May to get the shackle of the "EU Agreement" passed. This will make UK a vassal of the EU, totally uncompetitive and unable to break free.
    This Ms. May "Deal" will ensure the EU will secure the UK's £60bn + funds Germany so badly needs and will, they hope, prevent further discontent across the EU. Without, the EU is already on a route of failing. It needs to change. The UK needs to be in Europe and can best effect change in the EU by leaving on its own terms.

    Businesses don't need more time. From their point of view the WTO is far easier to deal with than the EU and it's mountain of barking mad legislation that is very expensive to implement. Most businesses do not export at all, let alone to the EU. Our Civil Service is fully prepared for a WTO exit, it's their job to ensure the Remaniacs so claimed 'cliff edge' does not take place. EU everything is no longer legally enforceable in the UK after the end of March, so what are they going to do?... arrest us all for not complying with non existent legislation? If businesses are ready now, why do they have to be kept back from taking advantage for the sake of those dragging their feet? We'll transition at our own pace with a deadline where full transition has to be completed. We'll do the job the hired help are refusing to do for them. We can't hold reruns without valid legal grounds. There are none, so that isn't going to happen. Also it would give licence to the likes of Sturgeon and the IRA to carry on holding leave the UK referendums till they get the result they want. It is not going to happen, they cannot afford the precedence. As for research funding, the EU does not have money tree farms, it's our money in the first place. Leaving means we can fund things that are important to the UK, like renewable energy, instead of the EU funding engineering courses in unwanted Fracking. If their intent is to not deliver democracy exactly as advertised and ordered, it will, guaranteed create a constitutional crisis where democracy needs to be restored. Another guarantee, the hired help will like the result of that, even less than losing their access to the EU's bottomless pit of unaccounted for public money. No is not an option.

    I full well realize that the Brits knowingly voted (not all of them, obviously) to give up a very advantageous position in the naive hope of getting an even better deal, and that they won't have anyone but themselves to blame if Britain is unprepared for this mess, but for the sake of future relations I hope that the EU members refrain from basking in schadenfreude. Britain is an essential part of Europe. For the most part, we share the same values and ideals, and the last thing we need is lasting resentment between the UK and the rest of Europe, especially in times like these.

    So she’s now prepared to spent 14 million of our money to frighten the MPs into voting for her terrible deal. She has seriously lost the plot. Rams gate should have been prepared 2 years ago if it would be ready to take ferries. Just another false load of rubbish from Mrs May. This man has a terrible history of ferry business. I think she is taking the mickey again and taking us for mugs

    So, Rob McKenzie, CEO of Policy and Public affairs says British businesses are not prepared for a no deal Brexit. Why not? The Brexit vote came in on 24th June 2016. Businesses have had two and a half years to prepare for every eventuality, including No Deal under WTO, which is what the people voted for. If businesses have not made any contingency plans for no deal, then there is something seriously lacking in the owners and managers of the businesses. Even though short termism is a disease that affects all our public life from politics to civil service and business, making no preparations for no deal is stupidity of the highest order. The kind of stupidity we have seen with our government who had no plans for Brexit because they fervently believed Remain would win the vote.
