Wonder if Russia had a hand in the Brexit election results?
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

Well Russia certainly benefits from a divided Europe, no surprise if they did as the outgoing PM claimed.

Another one for you...

"The EU helped keep the peace in Europe"

Farage and co: "No, it's NATO"

Trump trashes NATO as obsolete.

Not a peep out of Farage and co.

Keir Starmer. Silly name......silly man.
" No one voted to be poorer". Funny then how most of the Remain side's argument was based around that theory. Knob.

Yes, I heard some of Keir's comments yesterday. Both he and the mincing little turd Farron seem to think that the British people voted to leave the EU because we treasure its practices and institutions. Just ridiculous.

The President of the European Commission ( or as The Sun might say, that funny little man from Malta with the funny name)-

We want a fair deal for the United Kingdom. But that deal necessarily needs to be inferior to membership.

This should not come as a surprise to anyone. Indeed, thinking it can be otherwise would indicate a detachment from reality.

Yesterday's statement by my colleague and friend Prime Minister May helps clarify the priorities of the British government during the impending negotiations. Our understanding is that Prime Minister May is prioritising curbs to freedom of movement of people over membership of the single market and the customs union.

She added that she did not want for the UK to replicate something that exists, but the creation of something new.

I would like to confirm to this House today that at this point there is unequivocal unity within [the European] council. This stance does not arise from antagonism but from belief in the core principles of the European project, as stated by the 27 heads of government after the Brexit referendum result which we respect as a sovereign decision.

The freedom of movement of persons, goods, services and capital cannot be decoupled. Put simply, the four freedoms are indivisible.

Given the perilous state of the EU, that is a ridiculous statement. What the EU ideologues consider to be benefits, the majority of UK referendum participants consider undesirable.
'Malteaser'  :D

Stated with commendable clarity.

A bitter and petulant piece that if anything, underlines that we have the upper hand in these negotiations. Contrary to the opinion expressed by the author of this foolish piece, we're in a position of strength. Because we're able to extract the most important requirements - control of our borders, an end to EU influence over our policies and laws and so on - simply by taking them. I do understand (and enjoy) the resentment and frustration of the Little Europeans.

But everybody hates bankers anyway, GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!
If indeed it should come to pass.
Other banks may well employ more staff as the City explores new avenues. Who can say.

Just as long as Brexit has been concluded before the Euro tanks.
