I certainly wouldn't demand a second election.


But you will get a chance every 4 years.

One woman's opinion...
When these people talk as if leaving the EU will mean all our trade with them will cease. Yeah. Right.
And I seriously doubt - sorry to a certain subset of Brexiteers - that leaving the EU will have any impact on immigration either. When I was at A&e recently, the people who saw me were immigrants from the Caribbean and South Asia. The Doctors who saw me in the fracture clinic were from Canada and Hong Kong. I know this is only one man's limited experience, but these weren't even EU immigrants.

Excellent piece..people can moan and state the negative view but I have as yet to see any excellent articles on the benefits of leaving. Where are they?

Did you actually read that article? It's an alarming and worrying state that Brexit will cause.

12% price hike by British gas, due to wholesale energy being traded in other currencies and sterling 20% down. Don't rule out that emergency budget yet.

Or due to:

Quote
The energy supply giant is the last of the so-called 'Big Six' suppliers to raise rates this year while blaming rising costs related to energy network upgrades and policy programmes.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/08/01/british-gas-hikes-electricity-prices-125pc/

or, quoted by the Grauniad:
Quote
The chief executive of Citizens Advice, Gillian Guy, said: “British Gas has in recent years been offering one of the less expensive standard variable tariffs from a larger firm, but today’s price rise will close this gap and hit longstanding customers hardest. This price rise has been issued despite costs for energy firms dropping in recent months.”

Or due to an effort to arrest falling profits

They can disagree by all means. I just wonder if they have thought it through.


No Open Skies agreement means no flights to and from UK from EU and US - only eight months left to get an interim agreement on that one! - hard border between NI and Eire so IRA comes back, 40% tax on food exports and loss of CAP rebate means UK farmers go out of business, loss of passporting means US banking houses up sticks and move to Dublin or Frankfurt so our City economic engine stalls.


Hard Brexit BAD. Let's do it slowly and carefully and safely.

There is no "hard Brexit", there is leaving the EU, and various degrees of staying in it against the wishes of the United Kingdom.

What I think people need to remember is that we aren't asking for favours from the EU - the Big Money on both sides needs a trade deal, the ability to travel to and from the EU, etc etc. The EU wants to send us its unemployed, sell us its cars, Prosecco and package holidays so we aren't in as weak a position as the remoaners would have us believe.
