Which Brexiter saw this one coming?

    Sorry, needabreak, you're talking out your arrse as much as those who voted for Brexit did so without thinking things through properly.

    If you want my advice, if I were you, I'd take that break you need and spend it somewhere relaxing so you had the opportunity to do nothing other than think. And leave your phone at home.

    Anyone interested in history, might find Henry VIII had only 3 mothers in law.

    I don't want your advice or personal comments about any orifice you think I may be communicating through thank you. I suspect you disagree with my views on this... *wonder if you can still see my signature.

    I cannot see your signature since I'm using that handheld device which precludes my seeing it. My view on debating every single trade deal stands.

    Since you have been so rude to me I shall take your advice, personal comments, referrals and often extended and irrelevant posts with a pinch of salt, I'd hoped posters could remain civil despite disagreements but this has clearly proved quite a challenge for you.

    Trade decision? Exactly what was the decision that was made? seems more of a dictat we had no choice about - because we've left the EU.

    ...and yes, you can be sure that decisions made by the government won't just be accepted and the blather of apologists taken as good enough.

    Can you add a note to your signature the time of the month it's best to avoid conversing with you in order to avert misunderstandings please?

    EU trade deals are a red herring. EU as a proportion of our trade has been diminishing, whilst our trade with the US, with whom we don’t have a trade deal, has been increasing.

    I am very familiar with cloud computing and I am astonished at this brazen move to rob us citizens of their data protection.

    What data protection have you been robbed of?

    I see Emmanuel Macron said yesterday that the EU doesn't need Britain to show our disunity, as EU budget talks failed over disagreement on how to replace the €75bn gap in EU finances following Brexit.

    Angela Merkel admitted that the talks had been broken off because "differences are too big", while Macron wants more money for French farmers and the "frugal four" (Austria, Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands) said they would not accept a budget of more than 1% of the bloc's GDP.

    And Ireland has been asked to become a net contributor, with increases in contributions required and reductions to Irish farmers and infrastructure. Some grattitude for Varadkar doing the EU's dirty work over Brexit.

    The trouble with Brexit is that people have been more interested in the EU failing, than thinking about what Brexit actually entails.

    Hence the mess. Already.

    Brexit will fail. It is failing. Grounded on lie after lie after lie.

    David Dimbleby's savage attack on 'liar' Boris Johnson and 'apeing Donald Trump'

    He added: "Nobody trusts Boris Johnson. Who could trust Boris Johnson?

    "He lies everywhere to everyone. He lies to his family. He just makes it up, you know."
