What happens now?

If I go from France to UK via Chunnel, I have to show my passport and they process it, but cannot recall exactly what.

As I know the Nth Ireland border with Ireland is no border so no checks or controls and if you look at, basically impossible anyway.  Ireland is not part of Schegen so the UK Nth Ireleand is effectively under the Irish immigration protection/governance and VV for international flights to Belfast.

Currently now Nth Ireland to Mainland UK, I must have to show some form of photo ID, as a foreigner is a passport.

I think most Nth Irelanders would rather keep the border to Ireland open and free flowing over a border to UK.

That made me laugh too.

Unless of course he specifically meant the people living on Rathlin.

I'm hearing a Brexit deal has been done!! signed off by all the appropriate parties, it is yet to be ratified by the House of Commons however.
Good news, but have we got this far before?
RTT_Rules
Corban has stated he is not going to support the deal so it may not be ratified by the UK Parliament. Also the Irish border situation has not been resolved so its not a done deal. I hope the deal fails and it goes to another referendum anf this time some common sense is demonstrated.

The DUP has hinted that they will not support such a deal, which on paper looks inferior to the may deal.

Complete farce but that's what you get with minority parties holding the balance of power.

Boris Johnson looks like having a massive win in the U.K Election, an exit poll has suggested the margin will be 86 seats, now, time to get this mess of Brexit done and dusted!!  - https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/world/what-happens-to-brexit-now-jubilant-brexiteers-celebrate-as-exit-poll-confirms-huge-tory-majority/ar-AAK4EEV?ocid=spartanntp
  Carnot Chief Commissioner

It's looking like a landslide.  Labour have lost the traditional working class. Sounds very familiar.

@Carnot Turkeys voting for Christmas.

@Israilfan Voting for Brexit, to be worse off.

Michael
  Carnot Chief Commissioner

The Left need to remember that pursuing agendas that undermine traditional family values will kill them at the polls.

In appeasing the woke Twitterati, it puts them offside of both much of the working class and ethnic groups.
  mejhammers1 Chief Commissioner

@Carnot. We are talking about Boris here and he would not know family values if it kicked hin in the Gonads. Admit it Carnot, you have it in for the LGBT community. You do not have to agree with them but you should not discriminate against them.


Michael
  Carnot Chief Commissioner

Both Labour and the Lib Dems were falling over themselves to see how radical they could be with their identity politics. It was gay Atheists like Douglas Murray that could see how crazy it was getting and the electorate have said "No".

Boris (like Trump) has a problem with unfaithfulness, but most have voted against policy, not the person.
  mejhammers1 Chief Commissioner

@Carnot. Just as I thought. UK is going to the toilet through Tory austerity. More people are on food banks and people bang on about non existent identity politics whatever the hell that is, gender fluid toilets and vegan sausage rolls.

Yep turkeys voting for Christmas. I so wanted Jo Swinson to win.

The voting was purely based on Brexit, Boris's mantra was "we will get Brexit done", and it seems as though the people have duly responded to this, I am also reading that Corbyn will resign, but not yet....

It’s very early in the morning in Poland and I have been up all night watching the numbers. Before going to bed I asked my wife what she thought was going to happen, she reckoned it would be a strong Tory vote to leave. Even Polish grandma (the only person I know to have lived pre communism, through communism and post communism yet still believe communism was better - but she was a VERY privileged communist) thinks Britain will be better off for leaving.

That’s right, a person who would still support communism today, and speaks only ‘hello’ in English, gets her info from strongly pro Europe Polish TV is a supporter of Boris Johnson - or at least what he wants to do in regards to leaving Europe.

Aaron,
Staying up all night to watch an electronic election for another country? I think you need to find another hobby.Laughing


Anyway, really is this a surprise to anyone to see Boris win?

3 years of Brexit stagnation, no I don't agree with Brexit but enough is enough, its being going on too long and needs to be resolved and Corbyn was a road block to resolving it. Brexit is going to happen, so get it done.

Corbyn also failed to state his position in Brexit in what was clearly a Brexit election. So who do you vote for BJ's Brexit or who's Non-Brexit?

Also, some of the announced polices/ manifesto of Labour, seriously what decade do they think this is, 1930? Nationalisation and other anti-progressive policies.

From the little interest I gave this election and various FB posts by my UK friends, Labour led by Corbyn pi$$ed this one down the drain and handed it on a plate to BJ. Sounds very much like the Australian election 6mths ago.

@RTT_Rules I agree. Jeremy Corban was an MP when I was 19. He werent much chop then and he isnt now. However the gap between rich and poor is worsening under Tory austerity which is making the UK the most unequal country in Western Europe.

Lets hope Boris Will get he deal across which although isnt great is better than no deal.

From the Brit's I know and associate with they will tell you why the gap is increasing, immigration from lower income countries competing against each other to do the jobs the Brit's in general don't want to do and willing to lower their standard of living to get the work.

Think Australia, there was a time a migrant could come and and join the long list of labour intensive jobs that Aussies were becoming too good for and/or lack of available labour. Snowy Scheme being the classic example. I also remember as a kid the Italian track gangs in Sydney, not speaking English and the Pacific islanders building the tracks in NW WA, Qld coal mines and SG up to Alice. Again manual labour in hot remote locations. Then we have the usual council workers etc etc etc. Today, those jobs are gone. So they are competing for the reducing number of lower paid jobs that immigrants can do without good English and/or recognized education. Typically ending up as drivers these days.

The bulk of the Brexit argument is based stopping the flow of unskilled and low skilled migrants, mostly Polish, Romanian, Pakistani, Indian, various African nations and to be honest with this I totally agree with. Western countries like UK and Aust have almost no demand for migrants who cannot do middle white collar or higher skilled blue collar jobs. We don't need more taxi drivers, bus drivers, truck drivers etc and in a few years these jobs will start to evaporate as well thanks to autonomous driving and other technologies.

The UK also have very friendly migration policies vs Australia, for example children born in Australia are only entitled to Aussie Citizenship if one of their parents has a PR, Citizenship or after 10 years and even then it doesn't extend to the parents. I'm aware of Pakistani's in Dubai who flew or planned to fly to UK when their wife is heavily pregnant simply to get citizenship.

Also remember the UK was never equal and always had a legacy of Lord over servant, where as most of Western Europe dumped their Monachy's and associated feudal systems into obscurity decades ago and what remains is a tiny fraction of the what the UK has retained.

As for austerity, sooner or later you have to learn to live off your own income, something most of the EU is struggling to come to terms with. Can we repeat the words, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Ireland...........

 Personally couldn't give a rats. Seems more about 'Rule Britannia', unable to accept that ship sunk along time ago.
I do wish Scotland well though!
