Redundancy and misery = Opportunity 

It just means no holidays for a few years or anything approaching a decent standard of living.

But why should the plastic chair dwellers of the Costas care about that?

They shouldn't, remember, it's everyman for himself these days  - there will be winners and losers, if you're a winner then that's great, if you're a loser then it's either tough shit or an opportunity to learn a new skill (depending on how you see it personally)

You're right Asda is shit, so fuck them, and anybody who works for them

Vauxhall has been teetering on the edge for years, they'll eventually shut the Luton facility down, there's no doubt about that, but i think that was always on the cards, not really anything to do with Brexit. Still, it's a fantastic opportunity for all the workers to go an get an apprenticeship elsewhere and learn new skills

Skills very readily transferable you would imagine, and with new initiatives to help with any necessary retraining, opportunities will be there.

No doubt there will be mass media doom and gloom, and several thousand people suddenly developing mental health issues because that's what they're told will happen. Lots of folk on social media will make tenuous links and silly jibes to no great effect.

Meanwhile, odd ball that he is, Elon Musk will continue his pioneering approach the the future of cars, and the more sustainable concept of keeping a vehicle for longer and just replacing its battery. Other visionary entrepreneurs will find novel approaches to the green future and the natural shift of jobs will continue as it always has.

Are the 2 stories connected? Esco will want to know.

Otherwise, it's all deflection and misplaced boombastics.

Yes......because Nippy is like you......obsessed with the EU, despises anything decent to come out of  Brexit or England, a whining ginger cunt and will never give credit for it......BOOM BOOM BOOM....The perfect twat trick

Pity the bbc ticker can't reflect the full story. Just reading that 3000 jobs are going.

Asda is shit anyway; fuck em.

Vauxhall is the one to watch for bad news. First PSA then a merger with fiat/chrysler.

Something likely to give somewhere. 

On the positive side there’s Shit loads of Jobs being created in the online departments at most other supermarkets including Asda

Aye, that's what I was getting at- the full article was balanced. The news channel just has a ticker of doom on it.

Anyway, what are you doing at the moment? Looking at a career change last time weren't you?

Obsessed you say.

Well, you (quite literally) started the thread. You are the top poster in this thread by over 700 posts and I'm not even in the top 5. Survey saaaaays: BOOM
 

I voted Brexit and am desperate for it to succeed since my livelihood and that of my children depend on it. Survey saaaaays: BOOM

 

I am a flaxen-haired, pure blood Anglo Saxon. Survey saaaaays: BOOM

 

I await your booms. But this time, make them count. A poor start to your evening - 2/10. Skill Level: English batsman.

Welcome them with open arms, just been on news about vaccine roll out there it’s non existent, perhaps we should send some to get them started and begin the process of allowing them to join the United Kingdom. We can’t change the flag though. 🇬🇧 

Wouldn’t need change, Ireland is already represented on that flag by virtue of the St Patrick’s cross and on the Royal standard by the harp . 
 

not that I see re joining the uk as a possibility in a million years like , more likely the north leaving than that I’d say , but, who knows how the demographics will change over the years , but, there’s ready made flags for both eventualities in any case and there are some who would want closer ties to uk as an equal rather than to the Eu, that’s true , but re joining the uk won’t happen

It was tongue in cheek, think there’s been to much trouble caused by U.K. in Ireland to allow it to ever happen.

Only if they want to be, of course!

I certainly wouldn’t vote them in. Mounts point before about the trouble the uk caused I thought was slightly lop sided also.

Thought we'd sorted this weeks ago with forced repatriation from Celtic Park, Klannfield and the Swamp on matchday?

Lop sided? How come? 
I think it was a good reason as to why what he was saying was right , too much history, and very complex history and relationship, but would be genuinely interested in why you don’t think that ?

I’d love to see anyone off here walk into a pub in Cork (when they open) and canvas opinion about a United UK & Ireland.

Now that would be a fun night.

Indeed , intrinsically linked for millennia , issues of politics, religion and subjugation only a relatively recent issue in the grand scheme of things.

Yep, looking at starting on a gas engineers course at the end of March. Last stint working away next week then a couple of weeks off before I start.

Looks like I’m going to have to start working for a living from now on.

Because I don’t perceive from history the Uk was responsible for all the trouble it’s as simple as that. Are we saying the IRA and their actions were the fault of the UK?

 

i agree it’s incredibly complex and incendiary as well and it’s a highly emotive subject over there. I love going over to Ireland both north and south of the border and have some very good friends particularly in the south. But it’s a topic we simply don’t talk about as it’s never going to happen and will just lead to argument. 
 

but I still believe to cite the UK as the root cause of all the trouble is an imbalanced view.

Be lovely if everyone could see it that way.

Unfortunately, sectarianism is a stronger force than any snowflakey view of arms across the Irish Sea.

There’s absolutely no way anything like this would get past the republicans.

You could offer to exhume Thatcher and have her corpse driven behind a truck up and down the Falls Road as part of a deal and the answer would still be no.

Fair enough, but I don’t think mounts did cite them for all the trouble, he said they’d caused too much , which is a fair assessment, from a perspectives of why the people wouldn’t want to re join the uk. 
 

there is a reason , in fact many different and complex reasons too why people wanted Ireland to be independent ( long before the IRA even was a thing) and it wasn’t because they felt they were being treated too well .
