In an ideal world I would agree but I don't see who is going to do those low skilled jobs now. The £ has taken a hit so it is already less desirable. I work with many EU workers. Hard job so many Brits don't want to do it.

But we allow more migrants in from outside the EU. Why are we so wound up about the EU if more migrants come in from outside? I assumed we would counterbalance accordingly but we do not.

That is fine but we have 150,000 businesses that trade only with the EU. They are going to have tariffs foisted upon them and that will leave them less able to compete. Also are you aware that migration from outside the EU has always been greater than from within?

I was not attempting to be obtuse. I just don't see why other countries would accept free movement if not in the single market.

None because you would need to be a member of the single market. They all are. Why would any other country be required to? UK and Ireland are outside Schengen.

WTO rules require that the integrity of the single market is maintained. They cannot pick and choose.

Are you aware that we have more immigrants from outside, than from inside, the EU each year?

Hello Des. Unfortunately they are indoctrinated into a certain way of managing the countryside. Traditions which will lead to continued reductions in biodiversity.

Where's our democracy? Did anyone vote for this?

This stuff makes me fume If you are deriving *any* benefit from hiring an “intern”, you pay them. Simple. Don’t pretend that offering 3 months’ unpaid work is doing them a favour. You’re just cutting off access to the legal profession for those who can’t afford to work for free.

I like this but I have never read any literature with the new towns in. Examples?

This suggests that the Tories are terrified of Labour changing their position. Wonder why?

Some farmers do that but many do not. Some are damn good guardians of the countryside. For monoculture see palm oil. You cannot force veganism on people but you can get them to change their habits over time. Less meat, higher quality.

Dear UK public, anyone who uses the NHS, Say goodbye to your NHS with Brexit. This is what your Brexiteer-Bannon-Trump friends in govt have had their eye on - a US-UK Brexit trade deal - opening up your NHS to American private healthcare companies...

Apparently Theresa May is planning ‘balanced & fair tax rises to pay for the NHS’ after Brexit. Uh? What happened to that £350mn love? Why do we need tax rises, unless the £350mn was a lie? And if it was a lie you don’t have a mandate now from those who voted leave for the NHS.
