tteedd- it re-gains us our democracy and you cannot place a value on that.

Britain has never lost its democracy or political control over its own affairs.

Now you know that is B..........

Firstly at this moment we are in a situation where the biggest democratic decision ever taken by the electorate cannot be implemented!!!

Secondly a massive amount of legislation is produced which our parliament has no control over. Moreover this is produced by the commision, an appointed (unellected) body.

When all we get from you is your opinion.

That's the pot calling the kettle black. Are not forums a place for opinion. It would be a strange and dull tome to read if all that is posted were facts. I respect your opinion, I expect likewise. 

I cannot respect your opinion as you keep repeating it when it has been refuted.

Name one sovereign country that is not in the EU or a candidate for entry to the EU that has a full free trade agreement with the EU.

Depends what you mean by full trade policy. Japan and South Korea seem satisfied with their arrangements. Do you imagine the Uk will be able to negotiate anything superior to these? Do you believe Trump will hand the Uk an open door post-Brexit? I don't think so.

I said full free trade policy. You were trying to make it appear that we benefited from such with 39 countries through membership of the EU when it is not the case.

You just cannot make these statements without justification.

Minford's writings and statements are self evidently evangelical for free world trade.

Evangelists are normally taken to be people who spread religious beliefs. ie things that cannot be proven. It was ment to be a slur on that academic and I took it as such.

Patrick Minford as well as having a better track record than almost any other economic academic also comes across better in head to head argument.

Where is your justification for that statement.? Compare and contrast please his statements and other economists to support your claim.

Minford's writings and forecasts have been recommended on your previous BREXIT thread before. But if you wish to know more about him just type Minford into the 'YOU TUBE' search, You will be much elightened. I just did and got him giving a lesson in EU economics to a commons select comittee. There is lots more. Try it you may learn something but I suspect you don't really want to.

This is all an academic exercise now as very shortly the UK will crash out of the EU under a new Tory leader and the disaster will slowly come to pass. Most people now I am sure are simply resigned to the pain in order to see the thing over and done with. There is no gain from Brexit, absolute none.

Academic exercise? not really. You have already said it is all about opinion. The biggest gain from voting to leave and the whole shenanagins since the referendum may turn out to be that the electorate has woken up to how poor, self serving and undemocratic many of the representatives they have elected are. And I repeat, if we leave we regain our democracy.

The EU currently enjoys a free trade policy with 39 other nations.

Weasel word here is 'policy'.

Name one sovereign country that is not in the EU or a candidate for entry to the EU that has a full free trade agreement with the EU.

"Minford is a unilateral free trade blinded evangelist."

"Minford is not only plain wrong he is dangerously mistaken."

" the catastrophic referendum result "

Micky. You just cannot make these statements without justification. They are just your opinion. You were shown on your previous 'Brexit' Thread that Minford has been historically correct. Ads is doing a good and well suported job of arguing the current situation. When all we get from you is your opinion.

Patrick Minford as well as having a better track record than almost any other economic academic also comes across better in head to head argument.

Neither can you say that the referendum result is catastrophic. In economic terms the current situation shows this to be plain wrong. In political terms, if implemented, it re-gains us our democracy and you cannot place a value on that.
