  1. The Budget

    Only realistic with today's interest rates.
  2. The Budget

    The conservatives are starting to worry about is a bunch of would-be young southern Tory voters put off their homeowning capitalist ideology by the fact that they can't even buy a dingy flat in their local area - even after going to university, working hard and earning a relatively good salary.
  3. The Budget

    It's a complete joke the house prices.. borrowing is so bloody cheap. I have a 10% deposit but my salary ain't even close to be able to buy a flat in the south east.
  4. Brexit or Eurin?

    It's in the budget!
  5. Millennial Railcard

    would prefer 33% off my rent or house prices than my rail fares - but guess every little helps.
  6. Brexit or Eurin?

    FYI £1.5bn has been set aside in the budget for Brexit preparations.
  7. RamsTV

    think everyone incl bbc and rams tv needs to be a bit more positive tbh - we won the game, players performed when called upon.
  8. Brexit or Eurin?

    Simplest logistically, i imagine you meant... rather than politically or socially.
  9. Brexit or Eurin?

    Like I said, it is obviously a solution to a problem. But a solution that opens up more problems on fewer people. The fewer people who, on average, didn't vote for the original problem to begin with! Democracy in action.
  10. Brexit or Eurin?

    Im not saying that I disagree with the internal border solving the problem - I'm just pointing out that it's undesirable for the people who it effects the most, especially as the province voted to remain. I suppose as long as the English are happy, it doesn't matter what NI thinks? We took the democratic decision as one country so I guess they should suck it up without kicking up a fuss?
  11. Brexit or Eurin?

    Yes, but you could work indefinitely illegally without some sort of border control - as you could go in/out completely undetected as long as you travelled via NI. It doesn't seem like we would be taking back control of our borders without some sort of internal border. In my opinion, your option (although i don't buy that it is a 'soft border') is the only workable solution without causing maximum chaos in NI - I just think it divides the UK up.
  12. Brexit or Eurin?

    The fact is that DUP doesn't want this to happen. Arlene Foster has already said that this is a red line. The DUP have said that this is a red line (and i'm sure would be for many other MPs). I agree with you, it is probably the only workable solution but whether politically and ideologically - is it right that you essentially split your country in two? I don't think it is possible to have 'soft entry' - any border is a border? Or do you just mean separate lanes... It also doesn't solve the issue of people working illegally in Northern Ireland, essentially give away control of immigration policy there to Irish government.
  13. Brexit or Eurin?

    But what about people coming in from Ireland who won't be entitled to be in the UK? Specifically EU nationals? There would be nothing to stop EU nationals excercising their right to go to Ireland and then travelling to the UK and working in the black economy. Or even worse, human traffickers using this route. The only way to combat this is by introducing an internal border within the UK.
  14. Brexit or Eurin?

    Not just that, but immigration too. No chance DUP will want border formalities between NI and GB. And you then you still don't really solve the issue of subjecting EU nationals to immigration control in NI.
  15. Brexit or Eurin?

    The EU doesn't spend money in the same way as UK government - a lot of it is Capex and other project-based work. They don't fund things social security so there will just be less investment. All they will do when we stop contributing is reduce Capex in eastern european states in ERDF and Cohesion Fund.
