    Sorry @dbr10 but I clicked on 'Unwatch Thread' a good while ago. I'm with @zand on Brexit now, tired of the circular arguments.

    Newspapers have exaggerated problems with the EU for years. Much of this is because they are owned by non-doms trying to fiddle their taxes. The Daily Mail is registered in Bermuda to avoid tax. The Barclay brothers own the Telegraph and live in Monaco. The EU plans to introduce a crack down on tax avoidance in January. That's largely what this is all about - and people making money from collapsing the £ and economic chaos.

    The scaremongering is pure evil by the establishment. Nobody will die from lack of medication , the EU need us as much as we need the medicaions. There are other countries we can buy from there's a big world out there .
    The big phama companies won't miss our on their money .

    It's not rubbish. It's fact. But it's a bit unkind to put it so bluntly

    When I first came across it I was totally baffled. But I can see it now

    Remember Dunkirk. That wasn't self inflicted though.

    Brexit is a right wing coup by disaster capitalists. It will lead to deregulation; worse environmental, consumer and worker protections. Some of these crackpots actually talk about Singapore on Thames. The authoritarianism is already with us. The "will of the people" is straight from the 1930s.

    Well done. You voted to make your grandchildren poorer and to take away their freedom of movement to live, work, travel, study and make their homes in the EU. They are going to love you.

    Which is exactly why we need to leave asap , think about it , if the EU would be spiteful enough not to let the UK continue to buy life saving medications just because we chose to leave the bloc , then in my eyes that makes them unworthy of being any part of .
