I think he thinks that Reg is Paul Reg.
Ah makes sense, take so we are guessing people's identity based on the tone and factual quality of their posting and Hoey has reached a conclusion about Reg.

Not bollocks - the UK employment number is higher.

What isn't in dispute is that some jobs that used to be done in the UK will have gone to other lower cost nations. 


At least they will be going to India post 2019 (as the Indian government have made clear that barriers will have to come down even more of we want the fabled trade deal), we can then still pretend we have an empire.

Quite a compliment...


Indeed, if people had an even basic appreciation and understanding of history we probably would be in this position. The real eye opener of Brexit is how the education system seems to have failed in terms of basic history and economics....

Maybe because under education, education, education, basic history was disregarded and whitewashed over.

Not remotely.... It's just been scary how many people on either side have fuck all idea about basic history or how an economy actually works.

As an aside, they should really focus on improving the NMW; £7.83 is a complete and utter disgrace

I would suggest that getting out of the EU would make it more likely to go the other way.

Phew. Agree with you that both sides as bad as each other. Everyone has an agenda. Brexit is not all about the economy for some or even if the worst happens it's a price worth paying.

The single biggest problem, from an education side of things, was the failure to truly provide information on what joining the "Club" really meant.  The original Rome Treaty is worth reading, it is very clear where the path is headed for anyone wishing to join.  Maybe there has been some expansion, but it's always a logical path.  It's a path I think the UK should not have taken, not when it did anyway, as it was for the wrong reasons.  Eyes were not wide open, which means it became easy to pick fights and blame the EU in recent years, for simply delivering what is said on the tin.

As he is a “hidden user” with stats on fucking everything why not?
Because several people who've met both have repeatedly told you he isn't, maybe?
