Quote from: The Letter R on January 24, 2017, 12:20:35 pmTo be honest although I didn't vote to leave I just wish we could get on with it now as quickly as possible - the public voted for it so don't really see what more needs to be debated, we certainly don't want to be showing our negotiating hand in public and the quicker we can start the process the better. More time and money wasted now, just what we didn't want.
Quote"Just think for a moment what a prospect that is. A single market without barriers - visible or invisible - giving you direct and unhindered access to the purchasing power of over 300 million of the World's wealthiest and most prosperous people.Bigger than Japan. Bigger than the United States. On your doorstep. And with the Channel Tunnel to give you direct access to it.It's not a dream. It's not a vision. It's not some bureaucrat's plan. It's for real."

Quote from: döm on January 24, 2017, 15:09:51 pmPerhaps, but I think the UK was one of the main countries pushing for the expansion of the EU (until 2013 I believe)
Quote from: DavidL on January 24, 2017, 15:48:55 pmAnd for the expansion of the disastrous single currency, Schengen zone, common taxation policy or EU defence force?

Quote from: Nick on January 24, 2017, 08:05:31 amDon't forget many of these countries also exist in trade blocs, ie Mercosor, NAFTA, EFTA, Caricom, etc etc, there are many differing types but all assist with trade between members. Countries as large as China is almost a trade block by default. So there are very few Countries that exist outside of trade blocs.

Quote from: Matt2112 on January 24, 2017, 12:33:37 pmSums up my position.Voted Remain on balance, the country voted Leave, so fair play; let's expend our collective energy on moving forward with it .....
Quote from: Slim on January 25, 2017, 13:31:28 pmThere seems to be a prevailing view even among many who voted to remain that the opposition parties and judiciary are simply trying to frustrate the referendum result because they didn't like it.
