Oh no the consequences of our actions, they're here again

No no no, that's not how conservative politics work. Anything bad that happens has nothing whatsoever to do with their actions but are the direct result of some political belief of the other side. Example, hurricanes are not caused by climate change, it's because God is angry at gay marriage.

Clearly it's because Brexit didn't go far enough. If it had been a full Brexit then we'd have had millions, dare I say billions for research funding.

(/s in case I wasn't clear)

TBF, I think they (conservatives) may be happy with this?

I’d say Brexit is going rather well, the benefits haven’t shown up yet, but we finally have control to screw ourselves over now

The US essentially has a trade bloc equivalent to Europe contained entirely within its borders. Thus, it doesn't necessarily need an economic union with other countries. The UK does not.

They were so tough that no one else could it.

As is the case with powerful nations, their downfall is from internal BS.

Ys, definitely better than lifting other people up, drag them down. Genius.

Another Brexit Benefit(tm). We're no longer squandering cash on advancement and development which could be better used to give tax breaks to bankers.

The whole situation would quite frankly be hilarious if I wasnt living on the same island as these idiots.


raistlin65 t1_j7dmgmr wrote

That's okay. We got a bunch of idiots over here in the US who don't want to raise our debt ceiling. Which would be at least as stupid as Brexit.

Once again those damn unintended consequences of Brexit come to bite not just the middle / lower class, it bites UP and is causes a brain drain of the top tier research academics - which will have a long term effect. There will be no role models for young students to admire and strive to model.

There will be role models. They just won’t be good ones

Can someone provide us non-Britons the pro-arguments of Brexit again???


Blofish1 t1_j7ars8c wrote

IIRC, Conservatives claimed that leaving the EU would save Britons millions of pounds a day which they claimed the UK was using to subsidize those lazy Europeans. Apparently their calculations were off (aka lying) which is shocking because they had full support from Fox News.

Britain is reaping the benefit of Brexit but unfortunately, not the way they expected.

The idiots who pushed it through are the ones surprised, everyone managed to figure out that it wouldn't be great

So closing the border caused goods and services to stop flowing, who would have guessed.


MansfromDaVinci t1_j79g980 wrote

This is more that there are pan European funding institutions for reasearch which were quite beneficial for the UK and leaving the EU cut them off. Various pro-leave politicians made promises to match the funding, which nobody in their right mind believed, hey ho. Academics and researchers generally did not vote leave and the ones who could have been quietly leaving the Uk since 2016.

As someone who's lived in Germany for the last 7 years & come to the UK this semester, please let me inform you that hell will freeze over before Germans want you back. They've moved on from what they now perceive to have been a toxic & unreliable relationship.

Sorry. Maybe they'll mellow in the 2030s. (◕‿◕✿)

And the requirements for re-entry would be... Unacceptable from the UK's perspective. Forget keeping your own independent currency, and most of the exceptions in trade and fishing they had before.

As they should. They sat on the head table with all privileges in the world, but still found that not enough.
