Re: Yet another Remoaner circle-jerk on El Reg.
There is quite some disagreement over Brexit in thereg and their commentards.
But there can be little discussion about this particular issue: we (as in the UK) demanded that non EU countries had to be barred from providing the essential works for the project, and that is not illogical.
Now we leave, and as we are no longer part of the EU, of course we got out of the project. Quite obvious.
I think we should get reimboursed, at least partly reimbursed, but who knows if we would get that or not... we have almost no leverage on the EU, and they have a lot on us.
As for our negotiating team.. well, they warned us about this, but we chose not to listen to experts, we were tired of "so called experts". Now we blame them when we dont have leverage, exactly as predicted.
you see, we kept moaning about rules, and imposing plenty of rules on the EU "or we leave", and they kept accepting as it was in their best interest to have us in the EU. Now that we have left, well, the damage is going to happen, so they no longer care much about us.
What do we offer them? banking and insurance, and associated services. Hardly anything that they cannot replicate.. and they can take it away from us with things like Tolbin tax.
