Hi RP2SticksOfDynamite. I had no idea the thread had continued after the vote. I was thinking of starting a "The Rocky Road to Brexit" as an ongoing thread. I came back to find your username to run the idea past you. I thought you managed the Brexit thread really well.

It may end up being the longest ongoing thread on ATS ie minimum of 2 years and 4 months!
