Just on day one: record number of EU staff have left the NHS in past few months, now confirmed, making the staffing crisis worse, and 4 city institutions are already confirming moves of between 10 and 25% of their staff abroad, taking up to 7 billion in tax paid last year with them. Experts from operation fear had no idea what they were talking about obviously, so I'm looking forward to Brexiters telling us what good news this is.

That's the confusing message from the left Hannibal. They bang on about detesting banks and multi nationals yet when it comes to the EU all they talk about is the single market. A single market which is heavily influenced by wait for it , Banks and multi nationals.
The left claim to love diversity, yet for the long term plan of one state,one parliament and of course one army to work all member states have to be conditioned to be the same , other wise it won't work, bang goes your diversity.
I am taken a back about the passion shown by remainers for this amazing EU project, if I felt as strong as this I would go and live in an EU country, you still can for 2 more years, go andlive the dream.

No matter what idiotic comments certain Brexiters like to repeat all the time, wanting to be part of the EU doesn't mean you hate your country. If you love your country, you want the best for it, and remaining in the EU would have been best for it.
Telling us to go and live in Germany if we love the EU so much, is no different to saying you should go and live in America if you hate the EU so much.....

Why did Theresa May's Article 50 letter give the impression that EU migrants are welcome to stay in the UK? The people voted to chuck them out.
Why persist with negotiations to retain the single market? The people voted to stand apart from such a thing.
Why are we importing all EU laws and regulations into UK law? The people voted to scrap laws made in Brussels.
When will the Brexiteers work out that May is betraying their dream of a stand-alone nation?

And what about the money?
£50 billion to be paid up front, before the EU will talk to us. How does this square with the promise that Brexit will make us all better off?
May will betray the people. She will either refuse to pay, in which case we lose the negotiations. Or she will agree to pay. In which case the people will feel that we have lost the negotiations. Either way, the same outcome.

Why assume I'm on the left? 4 out of 5 MPs, including May, are Remainers who are reluctantly - and they even say that - implementing something they fundamentally know is bad for the country. That's a lot of Tory people, a lot of whom run very successful businesses that employ a lot of people. Why do you think you don't find anyone telling you what actually good things are going to happen? It's all just hypothetical and hopeful. It's incredible so many trust their feelings and a few Daily Mail soundbites more than all these people with indepth knowledge and experience. They are so unpatriotic they didn't take the time to understand the issue properly before voting, or they are on the left and trying to bring the country down. There's no other explanation.

We need to be out of Europe, away from the beaurocrats. I voted out which means completely out and nothing in between. We need to make this country independent and strong again without the meddling of politicians from different countries. We need to be like the England football team growing stronger day by day. Today is a good day and it will only get better. Rejoice my fellow countrymen we have good times ahead, to victory!!!

Interesting analogy with the England football team. I believe however, that we would be better being like the English Premiership, i.e. Inclusive of foreign workers, and vastly improved by it.

@ Smithy If that's what you think then I'd suggest reading a bit more lefty media rather than relying on more right leaning media telling you what the left think.
Banks and multi nationals aren't inherently bad. It's the way they are allowed to operate and choose to. Like 'paying tax legally obliged to' which for facebook was £0. Stronger laws should come from the Conservative government to prevent this but doesn't. EU imposes tax on them (Apple) and the Irish government says it doesn't want it. £10 Billion. UK govt just sits there doing nothing while ALL of us on here pay more tax than FB.
I don't expect a company to volunteer to pay more tax than the law dictates just like I wouldn't expect an individual to. I expect my government to ensure the companies and people pay appropriate tax.
Bankers were paid huge sums for work that turns out wasn't profitable and caused a global crisis. Holding them accountable and coming up with new laws might do that but the Tories are weakening these types of law.
When the bankers leave though, lots of support jobs will go to. Cleaners, food outlets etc.

People, please get yourselves some reality pills before it's too late.
The idea that government wants tax from "companies" like Facebook,Google etc is a complete misunderstanding.
The river flows the other way. Power flows down from prime movers to minions (politicians.)
Politicians can't make it right. You have to do it yourself.

@Smithy, You heard it here first, the left don't hate banks and multi nationals it's just a right wing press and don't forget the Lewes forum thing.
