    Why not ?
    Do you think UK citizens will be banned from spending pounds in EU countries after March 2019 ?
    They were keen to accept our pounds before we joined the Common Market as I remember.
    Or do you mean we will stop littering in 2019 ?
    In fact the Italians were so keen to get us Brits to go and spend in Italy that they gave us vouchers to buy petrol

    Not if you change them to local currency. I don't know where you can pay in pounds today. The card machines that offer the price in pounds or local currency are doing so to make extra profit. They apply their own exchange rate which is always worse than the card company will charge.

    It's plainly obvious to me that the OP was suggesting that if we proceed with the utter stupidity that is Brexit, then our economy will be be so badly affected that we probably won't be able to afford fresh fruit;) - and we certainly won't want to waste the peel by throwing it away.

    There... that should stoke the fire nicely. :)

    Have they worked out how much it's going to cost to paint out the star on all those EU number plates if we do go? :confused:

    Of course the pounds now need to be converted to the local currency which will continue from 2019.
    But you knew what I meant.

    When was that? Just out of interest.

    And who exactly was giving out the vouchers? The Italian government or some other body?

    Good try.
    No not really. Need to be ever so slightly subtle with windups.

    I wonder when we will get back to the halcyon days of the fifties, when travellers abroad were limited to what was it, £50 for the holiday?

    1963.
    Italian government. Can't remember whether it was from their embassy or indirectly via the RAC.
    I went on an Ariel 250cc two stroke bike. Got saddle sore.

    You tell me.
    It is years since I bothered to read it.
    I know of it only by reputation.
    I have not heard anyone say it's writing is subtle.
    The words "Daily Mail", seem to make Remoaners froth at the mouth - fun to watch.

    You obviously missed the subtlety in my reply.

    Strange how wannabee Brexshitters like to try to be offensive with their "Remoaners" comments.

    Indeed. Any tiny amount of humour that might have resided in that term when it was first coined, has long since dissipated.
    All that remains is the feeble echo of would-be-antagonistic Brexiteers trying to persuade themselves that the whole thing isn't just a monstrous f**k-up.

    Well well. Obviously offence taken and given.

    Oh dear.
    I was a reluctant remainer but have not become a remoaner.
    Remoaner is just shorthand for those people still not able to accept the referendum verdict.
    Sorry I am not able to grasp the subtleties of your arguments.

    To me, it is shorthand for "I don't believe in democracy".
