Not outrageous, 'a mistake'.

It may still be proved to be a mistake. It may still be proved to be 'tragic'.

You may have come across it in the media and on the internet but there is a discussion, not about whether 'the people' should decide, but whether they were aware of all the implications of voting leave and whether the motivation for the majority vote was solely related to our relationship with the EU.


No one knows what the economic outcome will be, very likely little difference. There is no dispute on regaining our Sovereignty and Democracy, what price do you put on that Max?

A nice little reposte to the fat twat who used to be Director General of the CBI:


May.I.sm
@JeSuisSabotEUr

Attention Digby Jones

You voted for it. NOT US.

You’re useless clown @DavidDavisMP is negotiating it. NOT US.

You own it. NOT US.

You’re responsible for the #Brexit disaster you’ve created. NOT US.

The only people to blame here are you.

NOT US.

Lord Digby Jones
@Digbylj
Attention all Remoaners! Stop doing Barnier’s work for him! This undermining of our Country’s negotiating with the EU HAS to stop. We’ll end up with a lousy deal & you will be to blame. Will that make you feel better? Surely you agree we should not give in to bullies.

I said at the beginning of this thread that if and when it goes tits up the Brexiteers will blame those who wanted to remain.

Meanwhile BoJo gives a rambling speech and afterwards did a Q&A where he didn't A when asked a Q. I was watching this and had to LOL when this happened (as reported online)



Johnson is now taking questions. He is asked about “yet another speech” from a cabinet minister. Do people not have the right to ask: “where’s the clarity?”

He says the government has offered clarity in past speeches and must make the positive case for Brexit. Having apparently misheard the word ‘clarity’ as ‘carrots’, he segues on to farming.

Huzzah! No more crops a-rotting in the field because Johnny Foreigner has buggered off back home where the money is better now that the pound has devalued.

There'll be even more JFs packing up and going home as the pound plunges further against the mighty Euro

Pound to euro exchange rate: Sterling hits a new LOW thanks to Brexit uncertainty
THE POUND to euro exchange rate has hit a new low thanks to Brexit uncertainty, experts claim. GBP to EUR currently sits at €1.124. The Post Office is offering €1.0982 to the pound.

A remarkable article from the Daily Brexpress of all places. Maybe having been recently taken over by Trinity Mirror their rabid, unquestioning support for Brexit might soften.

The day before the Referendum the exchange rate was One Great British Pound = €1.30, now €1.09 at the Post Office, far less in the currency exchanges in airports or abroad.

That cheap two weeks of sun, sex and sangria in the Costa del Cheapo is now a long forgotten dream.

Good for UK exports, good for UK tourism.
Bad for EU exports, bad for EU tourism.

Brexit is win win as you say.

Trudat. Last year's weather in Pembrokeshire was poor yet, according to comments from those in the tourist trade locally, 2017 was a bumper year and it was put down to people holidaying in the UK.

Whether these people will come back this year after a dismal fortnight of cold and trench foot who can say?

I love Brexshit, it's tantamount to a fucking comedy show.

Interesting how the weasels who voted for the bollocks along with Farage were screaming for a second referendum when they thought the vote was not going to go their way but now don't want one.

Surprising how quiet they are these days too. It must be difficult.

Johnson - his speech went down like a lead balloon and is even more a target of ridicule than ever, the prick.

He coulda been a contender. He coulda been someone. Instead of the bum he now is.

However delusional Boris may have been, his speech must have been signed off by the prime minister. Bums together, down on the waterfront.

Who said the Krauts don't have a sense of humour and a gift for the understatement? Why, they could almost be British.

Merkel: "I'm not frustrated at all, I'm just curious how Britain envisages this future partnership."

Clutching at fake straws springs to mind <lol>

"The German chancellor said she hoped to establish "common ground" on future trade goals in the coming months and wanted a "close partnership" of equals."

Frau M has obviously told Barney to keep his gob shut <lol>

"EU diplomats have removed a so-called “punishment clause” from a draft text of the arrangement for the Brexit transition period, the BBC understands."

'They've not been impressed!' EU 27 growing frustrated with Barnier threats, says Mordaunt"

Well, when Mrs May gives details as to what common grounds she is prepared to accept rather than the ones that are verboten by some in her Cabinet then I'm sure Barniers would be delighted to hear them.

PS 'A close and special relationship' is a bit too wishy washy for the EU

PPS

A footnote published by the European Commission last week suggested that the UK would lose access to elements of the European single market if it broke EU rules during the transition period.

But officials have now promised new wording that makes reference to the EU's standard infringement procedures.


The EU are as adept as the Brexit team in reframing words that mean the same thing but sounds like a change in policy.
