You were offered the chance to leave but it wasn't good enough for the extreme. Yet it sufficed to implement the referendum result. Why are you not railing agsinstbthem?

And the two main parties dominated the vote because each promised to respect the result of the referendum:

Right, but which one showed you their plan to exit? Very analogous to the effort to repeal the ACA over here. Politicians talk the talk and the masses buy it. You (and we) need to back the people with the plans written down. Super helpful to avoid these awkward years.

Three years ago we voted to leave the EU - our rulers haven't yet let us. James Delingpole summarises well the feelings of betrayed voters:

There is so much nonsense in that article that it would only convince the already-committed, which is more than likely the intention with which it was written.

You mean Brexit-in-name-only? No thanks.

I wonder how many more people would have bothered to vote if the referendum was binding?

Really leaving, rather than technically leaving:

Leaving with no deal.

OK, so at least we now know where you stand.

Parliament have effectively blocked that up until now, and will continue to do so. Both potential Tory leaders seem to accept that.

So. You're the best ASL player in this country. You explain the strategy on how that now happens. I truly am all ears, given that we are a Parliamentary Democracy.

1/11 - Lots of talk and focus on what will happen to the Border in the event of a ‘No Deal’ #brexit
Let me outline the impact on just one of these roads for Freight:

EU power people openly declare that Great Britain must be punished and be ruled by a Germany dominated EU even as an 'independant nation'. Before Germany even existed it was France that played the role of being the master with the whip.
The French invasion of Russia, known in Russia as the Patriotic War of 1812 and in France as the Russian Campaign, began on 24 June 1812 when Napoleon's Grande Armée crossed the Neman River in an attempt to engage and defeat the Russian army. Napoleon hoped to compel Tsar Alexander I of Russia to cease trading with British merchants through proxies in an effort to pressure the United Kingdom to sue for peace. The official political aim of the campaign was to liberate Poland from the threat of Russia. Napoleon named the campaign the Second Polish War to gain favor with the Poles and provide a political pretext for his actions.

What EU tries to achieve is dominans, the paid chills that oppose the Brexit are as corrupt and anti democratic as the EU project itself.

Today in 1812-#NapoleonBonaparte ordered his 500,000-strong #GrandeArmee-the largest European military force ever assembled-into #Russia to punish Czar Alexander I for refusing to conform to the Continental System,
the French emperor's plan for subduing the British economically............

As in another thread, not having heard the Lesser Finnish Tit 🐦 for a while, I was worried, but now his mating call can be heard, it must have been just a mild dose of Avian Flu that quitened him.

Too bad and sad you don't have a clue how to use the comma.

Do you have any of those rip off, copied modules, for sale? I want a cheap copy of that old overlay you knocked off.

Could you post one, or will you be attending a future UK tournament where you can hand one over to me and tell me all about how I'm a gulag wanker to my face ??

Martin, there are those on the right (or the left for that matter) here who can produce a half decent argument. The Lesser Finnish Tit 🐦 clearly is not one. Because of my new duties here, I had to purge my ignore list so I could see if things get really out of hand here (a really high bar to be sure). You are under no such obligation, "Ignore" is your friend. Responding to the Lesser Finnish Tit's 🐦 mating call only means he flies over and tries to hump your face.

There is no such thing as “no deal” there never was and there never will be. There will always be a a deal. The timing and arrangements may vary but there will always be a deal. If we ever leave...
