The bit about Brexit they haven't told anyone about,

The bit they are keeping quiet.....or they may not have thought about.

Is

If there is a watered down version of leaving No ones thought of the social unrest this will bring.

If a load of Frenchies can riot in Paris just because of a Fuel Tax Hike. Just think what will happen if the UK leavers think that their democratic vote (majority) to leave is being rejected.

Apart from potential riots and civil unrest. there will be a knock on effect about any EU rules. The black economy will grow lots of cash for jobs and goods. So there will be no VAT or records. Something else to think about.

Memor, speaking of social unrest, I am amazed that we have not already had trouble on the streets. Christmas is approaching and there is nothing quite like rioting to help with the Christmas shopping and keep the cost down.

Over the years, riots, 'blaggings', theft of lorry loads of spirits or tobacco, and ram-raids have all peaked at Christmas time. As a pointer: in my High Street in the last week, we have had two pubs raided in daylight, their one armed bandits up-ended and the cash stolen, a robbery at a bank and a stabbing in another pub. All the signs are there and the French kicking-up is sure to inspire our own lot. :shock:

Just seen a (repuatable) report about the riots in Paris and elsewhere. Apparently what OUR MEDIA are refusing to report is what is happening in the rest of France. Apparently Lorries and Tractors have paralysed the country by blocking the main roads. And the Police are not interfering they are standing with the demonstrators . Showing their support by having a Yellow Hi Viz vest in their car windscreen. The locals know all the farm tracks so they can get about but its brought France to a standstill. Our Media are frightened that we may do the same here.

True, Memor. Some - many even, 'remainers' don't want to see or hear anything negative about the EU. :)
