regardless i do think we are all better off going our separate ways now, the hostility from the EU feels like true colours stuff


Furthermore after this Brexit expression of ours, they don't want us back anyway. So the 'Peoples Vote' crew can take a hike.

What De Gaulle said in 1967 was nothing like what has been put in his mouth by others https://www.theguardian.com/world/1967/nov/28/eu.france

Leaving that aside the UK/England did in fact lose it's dependence on cheap food from the old Commonwealth and accepted the CAP = fund the f*cking French farmers.

But now we want back our money, control of our borders, laws and sovereignty. And to lose the yoke of over-paid snotty gobby unelected bureaucrats like Tusk, Junckers and Verhofstadt.

The behaviour and language of these jumped-up little Hitlers is completely at odds with the Pax EU they claim has permanently banished the Third Reich.

And I ain't so sure about that. The current Reich pays f*ck all to defend Europe and we are wide open to immigrants and the Russians.




(that should give our tame Bruges troll lots of ammo )

I think there needs to be a line drawn between politics and people. I get that people might be indifferent, a lot of us on both sides are and from this side, there's 48% of the original vote who are still in disbelief at how badly it has been handled and i suspect a growing percentage of the other 52% who wonder what they voted for.

We are on the ride no matter what so hey ho.

As for the EU Politicians, they can FRO with their threats. Nothing strengthens resolve like the current behaviour. Even if governments can't make it work, we will, even if it's just to prove a point.

Here, have my nose, my face didn't need it

"Cutting off the nose to spite the face" is an expression to describe a needlessly self-destructive over-reaction to a problem: "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face" is a warning against acting out of pique, or against pursuing revenge in a way that would damage oneself more than the object of one's anger.
