Brexit means cosmic apocalypse…

By David Vance On September 13th, 2018

As we edge closer to the UK leaving the EU, the hysteria coming from the Remain lobby (aka The British Government) gets greater but I think it MAY have reached a peak in this revelation!

THE European Union will stop warning the UK about potential fatal space debris plummeting towards Earth in the event of a no-deal Brexit, new Government papers have sensationally revealed despite claims the bloc and Britain will work closely together after the divor

So, I hope the 17.4m who voted to leave the EU are feeling totally ashamed of themselves and their reckless action in condemning the UK to possible  cosmic obliteration.

  1. NASA will continue to talk the Brits on this stuff.

    There should be full cooperation among all nations on such things.

  2. There’s Trump Derangement Symdrome, and there’s Brexit Derangement Syndrome. Watching those afflicted would be a full-time job

  3. Well I’m totally convinced that the people who would not warn the UK of impending danger are exactly the people who ought to govern us.

  4. Ouch

  5. The Brexiteers are like the socialists of Venezuela. Blindly committed to sustaining their ideological dreams regardless of the evidential destructiveness of their path to political purity.

  6. There’s Trump Derangement Symdrome, and there’s Brexit Derangement Syndrome.

    And let’s not forget Putin Derangement Syndrome. As in “Putin’s a great guy and the Saviour of Christian Europe”.

  7. So, I hope the 17.4m who voted to leave the EU are feeling totally ashamed of themselves and their reckless action in condemning the UK to possible cosmic obliteration.

    Fair point David and I remain pro-Brexit. But 16.8 million voted Remain and that seems to get overlooked quite a lot.

  8. Firstly I would imagine that if there was ever a situation where a reentry posed threat to life in the UK that the EU would inform the UK of that.

    However, in terms of the access to the data that the EU Space Surveillance and Tracking creates, it is worth remembering that the EUSST is an EU program for EU countries. And Brexit means Brexit.

  9. Not telling Britain would mean that they are not telling their own people either. We do have people who can read French and German who would notice the news in their papers!
    But then, I would rather rely on the Americans, I’m sure NASA would know what is happening long before the EU.

  10. If this is an example of what can be expected from ALT news it’s not a great sign.

    First of all, can you imagine a significant object hurtling towards the UK (specifically the UK! ) that wouldn’t be detected by multiple agencies.

    And, as Seamus said, if you’re not in, you’re not in, so stop moaning about not having access if you’ve left the club.

  11. Any junk falling from space can never match the sheer volume of junk flying out of Pete Moore’s pen.
    The usual hysterical lies from the Brexit crowd and the usual dupes being duped by it.

    Look, when you encounter a sensational headling in a source like the “Express”, the common sense the rest of us still have says that we must read a bit further past the eye-catcher, and see if there’s anything behind it, which there usually isn’t.

    Because after the padding, you get to the real news: a document (from the UK govt) has revealed the UK will no longer be able to contribute to EU research on detecting space junk.

    “(This British document) states that UK firms will not be able to contribute to providing services to the programme, take part in the scientific and technical groups to develop it further or be able to receive grant funding to pay for UK involvement.”

    And from that the Brexit lunatics like to imagine cosmic obliteration for the UK while the EU looks on laughing.

  12. The Brexiteers are like the socialists of Venezuela. Blindly committed to sustaining their ideological dreams regardless of the evidential destructiveness of their path to political purity.

    So what is wrong with wanting to be like all the other BILLIONS of people in hundreds of countries around the world ? ie Self governing.

    Out means OUT ! I knew what I voted for knowing full well that I might suffer in some way. But that is the price of wanting to be an independent country. I want to hold those responsible who make the decisions. You cannot do that whilst in the EU. That is what Remainers do not understand.

  13. “Out means OUT”

    So why is this blog post complaining about being out of the EUSST?

  14. Fair point David and I remain pro-Brexit. But 16.8 million voted Remain and that seems to get overlooked quite a lot.

    Not important Peter. Be quiet.

    Out means OUT

    Cherrio, ciao, adios. Don’t let thar falling space debris hit your arse on the way out.

    We should remain in the EU because it was and remains a great benefit for us. We were not suffering in the EU , we were not dictated to by them, we were a voluntary part of the EU cooperative. We have spent the last 50 years aligning our economy and governing structures with our European partners. Why unravel that now for no good purpose. The single market is the EUs greatest achievement and it has been extremely productive and prosperous for all participants. It was championed most earnestly by Mrs Thatcher who despite her political reservations about The EU hugely supported the economic free trade benefits of the market. Being in the EU worked very wel for Britain. If it ain’t broke, don’t break it.

    You might well be right Noel, but it’s not my post. As for The Express, maybe the WaPo is more up your street?

    LONDON — It turns out the consequences of Brexit may not be confined to Earth.

    The British government said Thursday that the U.K. may get less warning of falling space debris if the country leaves the bloc without a divorce agreement.
