  1. Battle of the duffers next week then. Aberdeen managed to go around 80 minutes at HOME against that mob down to ten men without scoring
  2. I wasn't going to change anything. It's you that's got a bug up your arse about f**k all here. I just added acquis because the entirety of Eu legislation is commonly known as that. The part of it relating to the single market is contained in the EEA treaty. That's the single market acquis. If we left the EU and stayed in the single market then we are subject to around 20% of the current EU acquis. Although its not strictly EU as its EEA. But I'm sure most folk can work that bit out for themselves. Have you managed to admit that you're wrong about EFTA countries paying into the EU budget yet?
  3. The EEA treaty is part of EU law because it deals entirely with the single market. As there are countries in the single market but not part of the EU that treaty deals with all their requirements for single market membership as well as EU member states. You can be a member of the single market but not in a customs union with the EU. You can be in the single market and not be in the EU. The EEA treaty deals exclusively with matters relating to single market membership. Or the part of the EU acquis relating to the single market.
  4. The EEA treaty deals entirely with the part of the acquis communautaire relating to the single market. Was this too hard for you? Clearly it was. And then you decided yet again to get yourself totally bent out of shape about it. As you've been trying to shoot the messenger you better get down the range as you're a rotten shot. You keep mentioning intelligence. Is it because you are a bit chippy about the fact you're a half wit?
  5. Your frantic googling has left YOU looking a bit glaikit to be honest.
  6. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acquis_communautaire
  7. or acquis if you want to be accurate
  8. so which treaty deals entirely with the single market?
  9. Just as the UK wont be paying into the EU budget after March next year.But they'll still be coughing up their share for Erasmus, and the various other projects that non EU countries can be part of. And pay to be part of as they wish.
  10. No, they dont contribute to the EU budget. They contribute to whatever EU projects they want to participate in. EFTA countries contribute to the operational costs of EFTA. Not to operational costs of the EU
  11. Well if you reckon thats what makes someone a racist then thats you're problem. As for who I believed, you'll probably have some evidence to back that up so that you can DEFINITELY call me a racist. as for foolishness, I'll just leave your post there as a monument to yours.
  12. Do you understand how research is done? There are loads of folk doing that as requested.
  13. Already been covered. Try actually reading and also reading the links. If you can manage to do it without dry boaking. EU expenditure in areas like Erasmus etc as shown to you already. Are absolutely NOT to do with operational costs of the running of the EU. you seem to be struggling with this.
  14. Which was totally correct. If Scotland had left the UK it was also leaving the EU. Scotland isn't a member state of the EU, the UK currently is. And when the UK leaves so will Scotland as Scotland voted to remain part of the UK. You were lied to by salmond who claimed Scotland would remain in the EU with all the same conditions and opt outs the UK had negotiated during its time of membership. He was lying. Scotland would have become a third state to the EU. None of the EU treaties would then apply to the newly formed Scottish state. That position was made clear by the EU at the time. It was Salmond who lied, nobody else. As for the raaayciiists stuff. I'm pretty sure plenty of racists voted to leave. 400,000 folk that had voted SNP in the 2015 general election also voted to leave. Plenty of blood and soil racists among them too. As for me, I voted to leave the EU, we decided back in 2009 that we needed to look at HOW we go about this as the Lisbon Treaty altered everything and rendered the old tory eurosceptics from the Maastricht days, and the likes of UKIP redundant. What they were peddling was no longer valid. And the method of leaving (article 50) had been written into the treaty so it had to be used or total chaos ensues. As it is, it looks like it will take us longer to leave because doing it via EEa has been made toxic by people like slartibartfast puppeteers who don't understand what the single market is. But it WILL be an orderly leave of sorts and it WILL look a hell of a lot like EEA. Which is daft. But politics can be daft.
  15. When you've got over trying to shoot the messenger how about you attempt to deal with the actual fact that you were wrong?
  16. In the comment thread, one of his supporters responded, "anything east of dover, not to be trusted!" North then wrote: "There are a lot of Kermits to the west of Dover ... to say nothing of the Dagos and sundry others. These are to be trusted?" This failed to elicit a single critical comment on his thread – unless, that is, he deleted them. Must try harder. So last month he returned to this entertaining theme with the following observations: Jungle bunnies eh? I don't think I've heard that term since Alf Garnett was on the air. But still, nothing but adulation from his small but adoring fan base. Four pages of comments, and not a single complaint about this term. --- Doesn't exactly show him to be unbiased in his attitude to "foreigners" and therefore I think it would be advisable to take his opinions with a (rather large) dose of salt. No. His son None of which makes any of what was written here incorrect.
  17. I'm not claiming anything other than that you're demonstratively talking nonsense and are doing it from a position of ignorance. You've been given all you need to check on this yet you display willful ignorance as if its a badge of honour. Do you know how Iceland were able to stop capital from leaving their jurisdiction during their banking crisis? read article 112 of the EEA| treaty and find out.
  18. EFTA is a standalone organisation. IT is not a part of the EU. You've been shown that you're talking nonsense on this. As you managed to to use google, maybe you'd like to try article 112-113 of the EEA treaty now. This deals with your "four freedoms" Norway pay into the EFTA budget. NOT the EU budget. They are bound by the EEA treaty as thats how EFTA countries can be a part of the single market. The single market is not part of the EU. The EU is a whole different thing. Its a political union and a treaty organisation. Norway is not part of it and doesn't contribute to any of the costs of operating that. Maybe if you'd managed to actually read what I'd posted up instead of wallowing in your ignorance of the subject you'd get on a bit better.
  19. I'm just annoyed that people still spread pig ignorance about what EFTA countries contribute money towards. IT does get boring having to correct people constantly. And I do believe I was being ridiculed earlier by some poster. So, if I respond in kind, which I didn,t, then it could be understandable. Anyway. I've made my point, and its been backed up with some actual information that might help a few people understand the situation better.
  20. Those are by choice, for programmes like Erasmus and other things i detailed that they wish to participate in. All countries that wish to participate in them will contribute to the costs of operating them. They are separate from the EU budget. They contribute nothing to the operational costs of running the EU
  21. It was a response to Oliver Kamm who was writing similar nonsense about Norway and EFTA countries in The Times. It was written prior to the referendum. So its not been a new thing to see this sort of total misinformation being spread around by ignoramuses and liars. Its clear that it works on some people who still think people like Kamm are "experts"
  22. Wait a minute, your source is you? FFS! The sources are shown. If you'd managed to read through it then you'd have seen that all sources of information are linked to. You are trying to shoot the messenger rather than contributing anything worthwhile. You've been shown (with links) what Norway makes contributions to. Not a penny of that is to the EU budget. If you can prove otherwise then go for it. You've been sold a lie sadly.
  23. You can then admit you were wrong and we can all move on.
  24. OK then, what are your sources? Boris? SD? Read the post above your head and learn something.
  25. Your sources are wrong then. Plain and simple. Or deliberately misleading
