    That whole Brexit story is a very interesting one.

    I heard the reason why it is happening is because Brussels is ridiculously bureaucratic and the UK can't even do anything because it is so slow and nothing can get done but maybe what I heard is not exactly true always nice to hear the other side of the coin / conversation.

    So what is the real reason(s) why the UK decided to exit the EU?

    One thing I think can cause possible problems straight away is the fact that that you can no longer travel visa free within the EU. That would really suck.

    Also what if the economic consequences are extreme and there could have been all kinds of positives if they had stayed in the EU?

    Wouldn't that be extremely detrimental to everyone?

    I also think it doesn't sound so good I have my doubts as well.

    For example my brother went to the UK for work purposes the company sent him over but because he has a master's in Computer Science the dodgey company here tried to make him sign all kinds of crap so that the company in England doesnt steal him hahaha that's stupid south Africa for you. There is no legal power to keep someone from moving to another company.

    But my brother really liked the UK he said Coventry was amazing and it takes a very short time to move from one place to another he is considering immigrating there.

    But because we are of English ancestry it will be an easy move no change in cultural differences.

    Also their police have no guns!!! Absolutely freaking awesome that is already an extremely positive sign it does sound like an amazing place already lol :)

    But I digress - is the whole Brexit thing a bad idea?

    What if it damages the economy?

    All I will say on Brexit, is that people seemed to vote on emotive issues. I don't think we were given all the facts, and some of the "facts" given were misleading or not true.
    I believe extricating the UK from the EU will be a nightmare, and putting up trade barriers isn't a good thing. I think ultimately the UK will be worse off, in all respects - financially, economically, politically.
    This magnitude of decision should never have been given to the general public in the first place.

    ...and saved yourself the excessive/exponential rape and crime brought in by the refugees that other countries are currently suffering. I'd say that was possibly a fair trade, I'd rather have a harder time with some things to save my family from a large portion of awful things those disturbed 'refugees' are doing to ppl. Protecting family comes first. Always. The media doesn't even cover the atrocities those ppl commit anymore. So yes, we are being controlled

    I totally agree!!

    If this is why Brexit came about I actually 110% concur - these so called "friendly" 3rd worlder immigrants and other disgusting cesspool 3rd worlders cause nothing but PAIN and misery to other hard working people that want nothing to do with their racist and insane cultural problems and their hatred of decent people

    I don't want any more ass holes like this living in the same space as me... I am sick of these scum bucket 3rd worlders and their never ending list of problems. They have destroyed south africa I hate them like the plague!



    Do you want a piece of extremely evil shit like this in your country!?

    Given the tone and content of this thread, it's better suited in the Political forum. Moving it there.

    But do you question the agenda of the people who tell you all of these things are happening on a big scale? Or do you believe what fits your worldview?

    (To give an example of the scale of BS that's broadcast, today I'm in a city that Fox reported was a muslim-only zone that white Europeans like me could not enter. And that's without going into the websites, where things get really nutty).

    What is your perspective of the city in which you speak, vs what is being televised?

    It's a perfectly normal city, as open and friendly as you'll find in any city of that size (the second-biggest in the UK), including its Muslim minority. It's a place I know well incidentally.

    In short, the Fox "expert" was talking nonsense. Indeed nonsense that would take 5 seconds to check and refute, and which anyone with a gramme of common sense would have been dubious about. Why Fox would present such a thing as a factual statement by an expert I'll leave you to speculate.

    (For the record, the main reaction in the UK was hilarity - most people who heard of it found it too stupid even to take offence at).

    One thing I must say about the illegal immigrants and what I feel about them...

    The developed countries are like the frog... Caring loving and have a good positive nature and attitude to all...

    However the illegal immigrants remind me of the scorpion... It's in their nature to be decietful and dishonest... To lie and deceive ... Murder and kill...

    The frog is caring and even though it decides to put it's best foot forward... the illegal immigrants on the other hand decide to take advantage of this kindness and kill the frog... Even though it will get them both killed



    Yes I also agree with him with Palestine and Israel and how they trusted Israel and then they got back stabbed every time by the Israelites sad but very very true.

    The brain washing in the world today is extremely scary :(

    Also I feel the brain washing goes into far more sinister areas like how "all cultures and all people should be instantly respected regardless of their cultural background..."

    I see this brainwashing a lot.

    There are television programs that try and numb and brainwash people into believing that we are all the same like communism but the truth is that none of us are the same and we are all unique and different but yes generally speaking people of the same / similar ethnic / cultural background will have a somewhat similar value / views.

    They brainwash people into thinking all kinds of crazy stuff that's why communist countries tried to fool people into thinking we are all the same.

    Just disgusting and sick.

    There was a TV programme I watched I don't know the name of it because I could only stomach it for like less than 5 minutes it was an American sitcom that was designed to try and brainwash Americans (this was definitely the main targeted audience for sure) into believing that Muslims are awesome and it really shocked me how something like that could even get the funds to be aired... It was permanently going on about the awesome Muslims and how they are such wonderful people.

    It's definitely a form of brain washing for sure.

    It was quite scary how something like this could get the funds to even be aired.

    I seriously don't know the name but it was filled with some really lame and mediocre content that I am very surprised it was even aired it was clearly a political heap of rubbish / trash.

    It was clearly just trying to brainwash people.

    It had no other motive other than political brainwashing.

    Very scary.

    Nope it wasn't that series but it was absolutely terrible I could feel my iq slowly slipping away into an empty abyss of nothingness.

    Haha lol thanks @PitCarver hehe yes it was hard to carry on! XD

    Lol what really amazed me was that somebody actually spent a small fortune on such scary garbage... How in the world could anyone that it was a good idea to make something that is clearly political brainwashing?

    And it wasn't even like embarrassed or ashamed really scary.

    I wonder how much money was set on fire making that show...

    It had that blonde women in it but I have seen her once or twice I am trying to think which movie she is really not too famous but yes I have no clue what the name was but it would be interesting to see if it even made it past season 1.

    Seems like the networks are pandering to the wrong type of groups. In the past they made shows that would appeal to the widest audience...now, they try to justify the views of a small minority.

    this is FUUUUUCKED UP



    on the face of it.. it sounds great.... look good...
    but it is from a source that is very bad.

    like the current POTUS and it's admin.
    what they warn you about.. is what they are ACTUALLY DOING!!!

    Sinclair .. is huge.. and wants to get bigger.
    they will control more than 70% of media.
    they will have control of the info Americans are hearing and seeing.
    they will be able to push & pull.. the minds of USA.
    NUDGE our perception a little bit each day in the direction they want!
    that is huge and powerful.

    what is even scarier... that many many AMERICANS... fall for this double talk.

    Sinclair is a very very very scary organization!!!
    i wish there was some boycott to kill this company. but they are too large.
    only Government action to cut them down to size....
    but.. with this GOV.. i wont hold my breath..
    the 2 are together.. or they are of the same group!!!!
