Well, to a public campaign hoping to scupper Brexit.

I now don't see any way you won't leave, really. And Brexit Lite doesn't look as though it can happen. The best chance is stringing-out the 'transition' for long enough for the nation to come to its senses, but will the EU agree to that?

Unanimous consent of 27 entities is never easy to get, even with plenty of negotiating time. And there are only 13 and a half months to negotiate a postponement, which the UK has not even asked for yet. I would bet that you all are out on 20 March 2019, dealing with the EU on the same terms that China (for example) does.

But while I don't know the formal status, the EU seems to proceeding on the assumption that there will be a transition. There is outrage among Brexiters that the UK will face sanctions if it breaks the rules during transition.

So they won't be totally out until the end of 2020.

It’s not much is it?

That might pay the making of a simple TV ad or a page or two in The Daily Express.

It’s a gesture.

Fuck.
What AP said.
Small change.

Maybe he's just winding up the Brexit brigade. Bit of a giggle to see their outrage.

He clearly thinks it’s a lost cause.

DC might be right - a wind up? Or to appease his own conscience? Or virtue-signaling.

They voted for it and should proceed to the exit without delay.

But they were dumb, poorly educated and low class and didn't have a clue what they were voting for. They were essentially voting against immigration since they were mostly racist l00sers.

Out of interest - how did you end up thinking that a measly 400k would keep the UK in the EU?

I didn't, but the fact remains, Argonfart Pouffe, that the UK will never leave the EU. And you are very low class.

The half of the country that’s closer to death voted to leave. The younger half, who will live with the consequences, voted to stay but got sold down the river.
Either way, it’s a fait accompli now, and £400k in 2018 won’t change a thing.

I always thought they were voting against an immigration policy subject to the whims of the 27 sub-leaders (Hi Angela), and without consultation.
