So much for Brexit making the UK a 'small island sailing away into obscurity'

as was said by Barnier et al.


May is growing her back bone .... and this is her 'Falklands' moment.


Far from losing its place in the world she has spear headed the UK's place in

the world, by leading the world to put Russia in its place.


Lets hope this new confidence will give her the grit needed to give us the

people the Brexit we voted for.



Go May GO

The only people who are going to benefit from Brexit are the wealthy. The other 99% of us will suffer. Good job Brexiteers...

I'm not wealthy at all, in fact I would say I'm between poor and middle class (but nearer to poor).
Please give me a few examples how I will 'suffer'.

Farming and Fishing will be the first to suffer, the UK, along with everything else, can't afford to subsidise those industries to the same level they are from the EU. That means labour intensive jobs. That means higher food prices at the checkouts.

Lucky you being between poor and middle class, I'm probably the lower end of the poor spectrum, I live in hope it doesn't get back to food bank poor again...

We could subsidise those industries to the same extent that the EU does when we don't have to pay into the EU coffers anymore. That is one of the things I actually wanted to see kept the same but change the formula for giving out subsidies so it doesn't grossly benefit big land/farm owners like it does now.

So I don't think it will lead to higher prices. The only way our food prices will increase is if WE decide to put tariffs on imported food from the EU, otherwise, they should stay the same. Food prices could even decrease if WE decide not to put tariffs on food from Africa, which the EU currently does.

Could being the operative word. The NHS needs a massive cash injection to save it from privitisatiom and I have yet to see any evidence that the amount of money the UK is going to have to spend on implementing Brexit plus all the subsidies needing paid out is less or equal to the amount we'll save by leaving.

I'll be the first to say I was wrong if Brexit is good for the Nation...

The government have already said they will keep the farming subsidies when we leave the EU.
If you really care for our farmers (particularly small family run farms) then you will want us to leave the EU. Go check some of the farmers forums and from what I see many are for leaving the EU.

The Labour party started privatising the NHS and the Conservatives have carried on (while in the EU). Both parties also supported staying in the EU in the referendum. So don't tell me there will be more privitisation if we leave the EU. To stop privatisation of the NHS we need different parties and politicians in government.

Agree with your comments.

Ordinary people will be much better off after we have left the EU!!! It is the wealthy that will be impacted but that is not going to effect them enough to be a problem for them. They have enough already!

He just can't let it go, can he? Talk about a thick skin ..... doesn't he

realise how disliked he is? How little people care about his views.

The people had a referendum, the people voted Brexit ....

and still he pontificates....

A very recent article I came across....




Blair urges Germany to help foil Brexit

Tony Blair stepped up his battle to thwart Brexit yesterday by urging
Germany to do everything possible to stop it
The former PM urged German chancellor Angela Merkle to prevent the
UK from leavingthe EU.
With less than a year to go until the formal Brexit date, Mr Blair warned
"It would be a mistake of historic proportions ... Europe especially Germany
has a lot to lose.
It is in all our interests to maintain barrier free trade across the continent,
and to hold liberal democracies together at a time of authoritarian resurgence.

He added Germany should do what it can to keep the UK in the EU. The most
important thing is to leave the door wide open if the British people decide to
reverse their decision by a vote on the outcome of the negotiations.
He said Germany could play a key role in reversing the decision to quit if it
joined forces with France to push for european reforms that may appeal to
British voters.
Mr Blair said "I very much hope the new German and French governments will
take a leading role in spearheading reform of the EU.

Mrs Merkle has previously described Brexit as *deplorable* but admitted the
EU wanted a close partnership with Britain in the future.


Doesn't he realise he's yesterday's man. The British people don't care

WHAT HE THINKS.

We had a democratic vote and we are out in less than a year.

This says it all.................The sadness is theirs because there dream of a failed non-democratic project is at the beginning of its end. I don't know how it survived 44 years. The whole idea and model don't work for so many reasons highlighted previously in this thread! The question is who will be the next ?EXIT? ITEXIT? FREXIT? NEXIT? DEXIT?


Brexit is 'one of the saddest moments' in recent European history, president of European Council says
