It feels like we are losing a seat at a feast


Sorry, no. Britain is/was the feast.

If other Eurozone nations cannot economically survive, it is not our job to bail them out for next to nowt. They need to get their national acts' together and find their own routes to prosperity.

Remember how basic all the ingredients were in the shops of pre EU Britain? Wine was a luxury and French cheese, pasta only for the rich.


Nonsense! 1960's pre EEC Britain, my mother bought all this produce in Waitrose! We also had stuff from all over the Commonwealth. Post EEC, everything went down hill. For example, we could no longer get New Zealand lamb and the quality of lamb imported from Europe was too low for our tastes. We no longer ate lamb, except for an Easter treat, when mum bought British lamb; Welsh if she could afford it.

Well it was metaphorical. One would not want to get arrested for inciting hate speech.

Ha ha ha really? Last time someone tried to punch me in the face I introduced their face to a wall. The fact you want to punch someone in the face for a political choice is truly, truly pathetic and speaks volumes about the kind of sad individual you are...

Looks like it's no deal.
Remainer amendments defeated in the house tonight, zero chance of the EU changing anything, so 29th March will be independence day.

That lure of being a free nation governed solely by our own people made me vote leave, even if it causes me hardship in the medium term, when we bounce back we will be the envy of Europe.

Oh gosh I haven't been reading up on the details and I don't have a TV in my living room just one for my boys in their room and their xbox so I don't really see the news. So you think no deal could happen?! It will be chaos, we all know it in our hearts, but only short term, children will not starve to death, some fudge fix will always happen and everything will calm down find equilibrium again. I am excited even if it causes me hardship I am so passionate about leaving the eu.

I am really feeling this. I have analyzed the situation and we are going to come off badly out of the EU.


Well, let's just wait and see. One thing will happen with Brexit though, is that sovereignty will be returned to the UK, and that has to be good.

On your analysing, it's good to note that that forecasters, economists and politicians have real problems predicting the future. Often the assumptions are weighted in favour of the answer you want. There's an industry of predictions coming from people who want to stay shackled to the EU. Says it all.

Anyway, Brexit is just like going outside in a high wind and not knowing if your wig will blow off, eh? It may, or it may not, and if it did then is it really that bad?

Honestly....the economic forecast says that france will temporarily pass the uk until 2020 when the Uk goes back on top. In the mean time Germany could be in a recession...and certainly will be if brits quit buying bmw's.

It just those selfish London types propogating fear. All they care about is their precious property prices making 20% a month. Londoners dont give a toss about anyone outside the M25....o wait except those communities in Norfolk where they push home prices up so locals cant afford them. Then services and local shops suffer cuz those same londoners only come up a couple times a year....and then only go to Starbucks cuz they are mindless douchebags.


Maybe that punch in the face isnt metaphorical.

Either May gets another vote for her deal, or we go no deal. Those are the only options left now.

I will take and face hardship for Brexit, my name actually is Sarah, and SarahConnor is my hero character lol, I'm a survivor, I believe in our country thriving in time and being the envy of other eu nations. I will take much hardship for that choice if I have to.

I'm beginning to have ever such slight thoughts that all this ballyhoo has been played perfectly so it will be a no-deal Brexit.........

Exciting times, I honestly won't be moaning if I suffer hardship after Brexit, I knew the risks, the Remain campaign spelled it out well. Anyone who didn't know the risks didn't or couldn't read.
