Thread: Operation Yellowhammer

  1. #1

    Operation Yellowhammer

    Government has released documents relating to what it's now calling "HMG Reasonable Worst Case Planning Assumptions" but what was a month ago called "BASE SCENARIO"

    I'm 100% backing Boris but I'm not 100% backing his own government's analysis.....

    Sky news is reporting that it's the worst case scenario and not the base scenario.

    Sky news are reporting that it is titled worse case scenario, and not titled base scenario (which it appears to have been titled previously)

    I guess people will see what they want to see (and I include myself in that)

    If that's the worst case scenario, then it's no cause for panic IMO.

    Well I for one will sleep a lot better now that you've cast your eye over it and concluded it's OK.

    Riddle me this: if the SR consequences of a no deal exit are so negligible, why is a no deal exit held as such a bargaining chip with the EU by the leaver tools?

    Worst case scenario, base scenario? Whatever. None of it sounds like something anyone would want to vote for. Each to their own I suppose, but I wouldn't fancy it.

    Yet another panic merchant. Feared of the day youíve never seen.
    Just as the UK were pioneers in inventing the telephone, television etc, we will prove to be pioneers in escaping the clutches of a debt ridden, power hungry all consuming ďclub for the boysí, called the EU. Weíll be the 1st to leave, but we wonít be the last.

    Not sure if serious, but...

    You say "we", but you've mentioned just two people by way of example, and they are both dead. So those guys won't be around to invent us out of trouble.

    What's the worst case scenario when you get out of bed in the morning?

    Re: Operation Yellowhammer

    Government has to plan for worst case scenarios. It already has procedures in place for every natural disaster you could think of also.

    We're British, at worst we will form an orderly queue to get a single loaf of bread, no two for one deals for a while and maybe some organised pavement shuffling by remain and leave debating teams.

    Let project fear commence.

    The trouble is in your mind, and others like you.
    Nobody is saying itís gonna be smooth sailing. A big change is always gonna have teething problems, and some will suffer more than others while we get used to it, but thatís happened since time began.

    itís the blitz spirit lads!

    This is the base case, if youíre happy for people to die for the U.K. to be in a situation which so far has zero discernable benefits fair enough.

    This is what will happen if we get no deal. There is no panicking about it and itís why itís important that we get a deal.

    No one at the time voted for a no deal and anyone saying they did is a liar.

    But hey at least hedge funds directly related to boris johnson have placed £8.3bn on a no deal Brexit happening.

    What are the benefits that will offset this then?

    What will the country gain from a no deal Brexit?

    If no deal happens this isnít project fear this is reality mate.

    We are Britain and the actual case is people who rely on certain drugs will die because we canít get them.

    The U.K. imports 99.7% of its insulin. If you are happy for people who have something simple like diabetes to die fair enough.

    But I hope you can tell me something positive that will come from this to offset people literally dying?

    Itís facts mate. If you would prefer to believe the Tory party and their billionaire propagandists over doctors, economists, and business fair enough.

    I still donít get why people are so desperate for this yet have not one positive reason to leave and are happy to ignore all the facts of a no deal.

    During the referendum people were saying how important the single market was and now they donít mind people dying as long as we leave. Ive never seen brainwashing like it.

    Genghis Khan was shit hot too. Hows Mongolia shaping up nowadays?

    This does sum it up. People unable to accept the world has moved on and we're not a super power of the future.

    The people who are pushing it have successfully managed to get brexit and no deal to be seen as equal. They're nothing of the sort, which is why in the campaign everyone from Farage down said we'd get a deal (Norway, Canada, etc). NOT ONE of them was selling no deal, but now they are making out that we were always at war with Eurasia. It's incredible to see happening in real time.

    The knots Leavers are now having to tie themselves in to try to justify their original decision would be hilarious if it wasn't such a serious situation.

    Can anyone say that they had fully considered the fact that there may be shortages of crucial medicines for some patients as a result of us leaving the EU when they cast their vote Leave vote in 2016 - truthful answers would be appreciated as opposed to the usual "party line" stuff.

    People have been fully indoctrinated into the cult of Brexit. They donít know what they want they just know they want Brexit at all costs.

    Our pal William above said he voted leave because the EU were corrupt but doesnít seem to care that the leader of our country has gambled £8.3bn on a no deal Brexit happening.

    Re: Operation Yellowhammer

    How long before we hear that people knew that they were voting for food shortages and medicine shortages, rising cost of fuel and widespread public disorder? And that we should respect their wishes

    But why stick a pin in your eye when you don't have to?Nice of you to think of those who will suffer so that a minority of politicians can indulge in some ancient ideological notion of the Empire days when the ruling classes bowed to no one.Project fear is now becoming project reality and thanks to the law we may now know the full extent before we jump off the cliff.

    But at least you're happy for people to suffer. What benefit do they get for their suffering?
