Well, we seem to have them on the back foot, now to build up momentum.
Careful or you'll be sacrificed on the altar of 'baseless optimism' for being unpatriotic/realistic/pessimistic.

One piece of good news - The pound rose by 0.6% against the euro by the time the prime minister had finished her address to Parliament. :D

Everyones favourite President of the European Commision was on German TV this morning going on about the € 60 thousand million that Britain allegedly owes. I admire his optimism.

One thing that's slightly concerning me... Even Christopher Booker in the Sunday Torygraph (a man who's spent the best part of the last thirty years spreading sacremongering half truths about Europe) thinks that the Government's apparent desire to break every single link with the EU possible is a bit OTT.

Given what the objective of the hard Brexiteers seems to be - "deregulation" (which mostly seems to be about removing employment rights like holidays and hours-limits from the plebs) I suspect a great many people are going to find that the broad sunlit uplands of freedom have a chilly wind blowing across them.

We could always send some of the EU countries a bill for the 2 bits of German unpleasantness, along with their allies as well, with interest added!

Got any evidence to support that?

No?
Thought not

I'm extraordinarily happy about it.
It's what I wanted and what I voted for. Getting what you want is a rare thing when government is concerned.

No price is to high for independence from europe as far as I am concerned

On the other hand, many of those intent on deregulation may find that with the excuse of "we're just following the Brussels guidelines and doing what everybody else is doing" gone the electorate will just take them to account properly and vote against them.

Considering it's all about bring everything back to the UK from the stifling 'eurocrats', then describing it as deregulation is a reasonable summing.

Mention deregulation to a politician or a captain of industry, and they assume you are either removing rights from employees or protections from the public.

Hence @Bladensburg's comment. Got any evidence he's wrong?

No?
Thought not.

The waste of space and all round oxygen thief, otherwise known as Lily Allen has just put all the nasty Brexiteers in their place again.
Lily Allen slammed for string of hysterical anti-Brexit tweets as Theresa May triggers Article 50

That'll learn 'em.:muhaha:
If she's going to blame anyone, she should blame all who didn't vote.

Never mind, Lily love, choke down another mouthful of those yummy ashes of defeat and wash it down with a glass of bitter Remainiac tears.
