Brexit question or how to hi jack a post

If we leave the EU. Who pays for: a new driving licence, number plates, passport and any other documents bearing the EU logo?
The EU could invalidate all documents thus stopping anyone travelling, the DVLA and Passport offices could not cope with the demand for new documents. Just a thought.

If it happens, it will be bad.
Maybe only a little bit bad, maybe very bad.
But bad.
There are millions of transactions, contracts, jobs, exports, imports....
Competition is tight, margins are razor thin. A 1% rise in price means losing a bid, a sale, a job.

It will be bad for the UK, bad for Europe, and bad for the economy of the planet.

It will be bad for UK expats.

Some will benefit though; those companies that make all the new number plates for instance...

Interesting.

The apparently pro-EU liveaboard concedes that some will benefit from Brexit but the apparently anti-EU graemechorley thinks no-one will. Confused

Neither, of course, has produced any facts but, then again, who can?

Hi Richard
To ask 28 countries to follow the same path is lunacy, would your share your finances
with 28 other households and someone out of your control to run the funding?

The center (brussels/strasburg) is totally corrupt just like House of Commons only worse with the accounts not signed off for 20 years. What idiot moves office every month?

If you travel round Europe which I have to a fair degree the locals all wish they had our chance to vote to leave and all have said their everyday costs have gone up out of all proportion- why?
The Euro will eventually fail (see Greece-we are all now paying to keep them afloat as the cannot repay what they borrowed) and it will cost all dearly in both money and peace.

With Turkey, Albania and others cuing to join it certainly will not be for our benefit.
The immigration cannot cope with the numbers and we cannot recruit from India, China etc for those people we would want to employ in higher skilled jobs.
On a purely selfish level I will be better off if we stay for a short time but the long term for everyone is to go to what was promised a trading agreement.

Graeme

the European Court of Auditors has signed off the EU accounts as accurate. What it has done, though, is point out that errors do occur, and that most of these are in the countries administering the money, eg the UK itself, as opposed to centrally.

Sorry, I forgot to add that it takes the agreement of all EU states to let another country join. Thus it is extremely unlikely that Turkey or Albania will do so. Greece will vote yes to Turkey joining, for example?
