...still slightly confused as to what is going on.
Just as important - what will happen now?
All over Europe, regardless of their sentiments towards the EU, politicians must be sniggering at the absolute catastrophe we've made of this.
I had to stop watching. It's so depressing.
Bercow is brilliant
I'm seriously worried about what is going to happen. I have very little idea what's going on.
Why do they have to have that braying ar*ehole Farage on? He might have been one of the chief liars in the instigation, but he has no actual power. He was still lying to John Snow minutes ago.
I watched it on the Parliament Channel. Much better than seeing and listening to Farage or Andrew Neil.
As did I. At least the commentators seem to know something about what they're talking about.
And they explained stuff too. Without opinions, or digs or jibes ...
The outcome was no surprise. I don't think anyone from any party has a clear idea about what they want to do next. I agree that we must be a laughing stock across Europe.
I was at the EU recently and the attitude that I came across was very much sympathetic, but "Life is going on as normal for the rest of us, and it affects us very little".
Even the toilet attendant expressed sympathy
It's not just across Europe.
My Circuit has a new minister from Kenya, who came here in September. In one of our first conversations he said, "So what about Brexit?" He wasn't laughing at us, but clearly the mess is news in Kenya.
Oh, I'm sure the bewilderment is not limited to Europe - just that Europe is more directly involved.
The German press is using the term BrexitChaos.
We really have become a laughing stock.
I'm not sure we are: France is in chaos, Italy in recession and Germany on the brink of re ession. I think they're realising that making a bid for freedom is going to be harder than it looks. The whole EU project is going down like the Titanic.
Have you been keeping up with events in France?
Indeed. The EU is heading the way of the Roman Empire.
I had a message from an American friend last night, asking me to explain Brexit.
Could you get your own back by asking for an explanation of what value shutting down the USA government has?
Imagine spending 30 months negotiating and then coming up with a deal that both the leavers and the remainers hate! That really takes skill. You might almost think it was deliberate.
