I'm a bit thick when it comes to Politics but i'm ok with that, but when this first started way back and someone asked me my views I said, "Look, I dont get it because there is not enough time in my life to worry about it, but I do know this, I'll make a prediction, we wont leave, and someone will have had millions and millions of pounds "out of it", there, I'm done.......interesting times now
not suggesting other options.

its the bit about "we are not prepared for a no deal brexit " what the **** have you been doing for the past two years ? or are you so confident that you will get your leave but not really deal excepted How can anybody think we will come out ? we have a government that i made up of remainers and the EU that don,t want to loose the money
The worst thing is, the leaders of these countries and the EU Commission are out of step with the people of Europe. The people in the EU accept it. They regret it but most of all they respect it, so why can't the EU commission ?
IF anybody follows it GBP is rising against USD, it's around 1.31 today, moving $0.06 in around 3 weeks. It'll keep going until theres an announcement one way or another, or we Leave, at which point they'll dump GBP and there will be a run on the pound where I reckon it'll drop to sub $1.10. If you're buying a car or parts, mid to end of Feb is the time to do it
Here's a true story for you. A company I worked for had a small back office function in the UK. They set up an entity in Bulgaria with the intention of outsourcing call handling and accounting. They flew 50 people in from Bulgaria weekly for ten weeks to train and handover. The people in the UK were being made redundant on statutory rates despite having considerable length of service and previous redundancies being at enhanced ex-gracia, ie a golden handshake. They were contractually obliged to train their replacement, who were recruited for 25% of the cost. Talking to them over this period, the level of education far exceeded the jobs they were doing. You had people with medical degrees taking phone calls, qualified management accounts doing data entry. Each week when they flew home, some of them genuinely feared that they're homes had be taken from them while gone, common practice apparently by the Russian mafia. Pretty much all of them had the same ambition, work this job, improve their English, get a reference from a UK company then come to the UK long term. Being in the EU facilitated this, the cost of relocation was supported through access to EU grants, British workers dumped on the taxpayer. The mix was mostly time served managers 5-8 year s off retirement and young school leavers. I worked in Procurement and was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement and lead a project to outsource Procurement there also. I refused and shortly after I resigned. This is the reality of being in the EU
Going back to the initial point i.e.continual doom and gloom from the media, in my opinion what has become clear since the referendum is what a load of absolute arsholes the MPs have revealed to be, 99% of them did not anticipate the result, and have seeked to undermine it in any way they could as long as they came out with their seat. Since the referendum there has been campaign to block it from day one, by the civil service, the Treasury, Mrs May, the BBC, channel 4 and ITV, THEY ARE ALL ONE.
Regardless of what way we leave -if ever, the damage has been done, nobody trusts anybody anymore and it will take a long time for people to have any confidence in the Media/Government.
Everyday you see Trump getting the same biased treatment from the BBC -always a negative story never a positive, regardless that the US economy is doing well, he is talking to all the world leaders including Kim Jong Un (something Obama never achieved) he increased the minimum wage, gave greater support to ex servicemen and many other good causes ... but what do we see on our media? -doom and gloom...Brexit doom and gloom.....Trump doom and gloom... The government are at risk of losing a lot more if they betray the British public and they know it, that's why they are dragging this on and on with as many twists and turns as possible- to cover their arses.

Trump getting in and brexit ****ed over the establishment. Good....it's about time the people were heard..
Good advice from wb54...I ordered from summit last Friday...should have waited really..

your not drunk enough if you can lie on the floor without holding on..
A lot of the lying MP's who have not honoured their constituent's wishes are going to be out of jobs come the next election. As has been said here already, they are spinning the wishes of the public to mean whatever they want it to mean. I've only voted twice in my lifetime. Once when UKIP got 4 million votes and caused the Tories to call a ref on the subject, and then 'Leave'. I don't vote for any of the lying scum in the Commons and never will. Judging by there attempts to screw the public over on Brexit, never voting's proven a wise decision...
Coming from good old working class stock I listened to my Dad and took an interest in politics as far as local and general elections went as that was the only method normal people had of having a say and possibly a hand into how their country was run.
I voted to leave the EU... the vote was democratically won.
I am as vulnerable as the next man (or woman) and do not want to see my families hard earned living standard reduced... but if it doesn't go through as voted for I
will never vote again at any level.
Who really gives a **** if I don't ever vote again? - no one really but there are many like me who will just stand aside and God help the country once democracy goes out the window.
