armchair Brexiteer experts still proclaim it's easy and we should just walk away and everything will be awesome.
If it was easy, why haven't we just done that?
It's expensive and ugly and painful and is going to hurt this nation even more than it has already been hurt.

That thought also crossed my mind but the fact of the matter is that doing so would sink any PM and cabinet willing to play that game.
So what would be the point unless "they" are in it for the long game?
This is certainly gonna be interesting, I've never stepped into the unknown with my country before.

It baffles me that even when faced with the reality that leaving the EU is a massively complicated and expensive undertaking to which there is no good solution, armchair Brexiteer experts still proclaim it's easy and we should just walk away and everything will be awesome.
If it was easy, why haven't we just done that? Answer - it's not 'easy' like Farage and Boris promised us. It's not going to make us richer, it's just going to make us poorer.

What the EU fail to understand (and many in the UK) is that the EU is nothing without the UK.
What you have is a group of essentially 3rd world countries, I have traveled France and Italy and outside of any major city is peasantville, slightly more than mud huts with dubious sanitation hosting old school peasants, people in the UK could buy a project house there for less than a months wages!
The Brexit deal doesnt matter, we will be out. Anyone who tries to take us back in will suffer political suicide.
After the UK leave and the rest of the EU see how the self appointed bureaucrats in Brussels, France, Germany and Spain tried to ruin someone whose people voted to leave there will be repercussions. If/when the boot is on the other foot I look forward to seeing those fuel riots in france extending to frexit riots.
So lone EU, we are out....
