Brexit Phase Two - Trade

Cameron made his position untenable by his hysterical pronouncements in favour of remain. There was no way he could stay in place after the majority of the electorate stuck two fingers up at him.

May (as is now apparent) hedged her bets by remaining near invisible during the campaign so that whatever side won, she’d be persona grata with them.

The Tories elected May because she was seen as a safe pair of hands able to unite the Tory party behind her and negotiate a reasonable Brexit agreement. She has failed disastrously at both.

The reasons far that failure are all to apparent: poor political instincts, over reliance on a cliche of advisors, a career of running away from tough decisions and a lack of vision.

I was initially impressed with her as it looked like she was following a policy of masterly inactivity in order to force the EU to show its hand.

Instead, it became apparent the inactivity was because she didn’t have a clue what to do.

I fancy she knows exactly what she is doing and you don't.
 
Well, fancy that. You are still asserting you knew what you were voting for and can defend your expended shoe leather, I trust?
I knew perfectly well what I was voting for - to leave the EU.

What I did not foresee was that a government lead by May would fail to follow the clearly expressed wishes of the majority of people that voted.

So are you admitting you are not getting what you knew you were voting for?

Has anyone come up with an positive, real life actual benefit of Brexit yet.

Something tangiable, something we can all hang our hats on and say good job that at least we achieved something.
There has to be more to it than we dislike foreigners more than we like our country.
