It works far better if you look at the actions of the big brexit supporters rather than listen to the uninformed sound bites that come from their mouths.

Rees-Mogg for example, moving his company out of the UK because he believes in Britain.

Farage Shorting the Pound pre-referendum, then ensuring his children are German citizens.

Raab..paying money to family members for a none existent ferry service and despite the contract being cancelled it still cost the tax payer money.

They definitely want to make this work for the country.

You guys are such ‘bad losers’ over this whole Brexit thing. Glad that wasn’t the prevailing attitude during WW2 or there’d be no Br to exit.

Breathe. It’ll all be fine (whether you like it or not). ;-)

Anyone who trades stocks, comodidites or currency using their own personal politics as a guide is a fool. Whatever you think of them, these folks are not fools.

I agree they aren't fools wholeheartedly, they've convinced half the country that their self interest is in the national interest with a mixture of nationalism, misdirection and just good old fashioned lying.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Hammond has spent the last three years saying how terrible Brexit will be. Not one of his predictions has happened. Hardly surprising when he simply shoves the worst case values into his economic model but its also useless for any sort of realistic planning.

The whole mess of this last three years has been the continuing uncertainty.

Leave - OK then get one with it
Remain - OK admit you screwed up on the referendum, Brexiteers would have got over it.

Instead we had a bunch of amateurs trying to go through the door without leaving the building. We now have a polarised situation between leavers and remainers and no useful agreement with the EU. Exit with no leaving arrangement is now the only option (because the deal on offer is so awful). No deal is a myth anyway as there are lots of side deals.

But the economy is still doing fine and will continue to do after we have left. All the hype about "crashing out", etc is from people with personal reasons to gain from the EU. It's hard to find any leavers who are giving up EU money to do it.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Brexiteers would get over it? Not a chance. Farage will go on and on whipping up a frenzy amongst the hard of thinking until people stopped giving him air time.

As for the economy doing fine... tell that to all those whose jobs have already gone or will be going as a direct result of us not having a suitable trade agreement with our largest trading partner.

And don’t be taken in by the employment figures, we aren’t a nation of unemployed people, we are a nation of under employed people. Zero hour and short contracts for people who want to work full time doesn’t paint a picture of economic success to me.

Either way, Brexit: it's happening

Will of the people. We're in a country where people are smart enough to do their own homework. Hold on to their own opinions and beliefs. Yours are by no means any more factual than those on the opposite side of the Brexit debate.

It still amazes me though, how loud and biased the media was against leaving the EU and yet... people still voted that way. Wow.

Re: What's made you smile today? (Part II)

Sadly, the opinions and beliefs are founded on the rantings of a near racist merchant banker (in every sense of the word) who has made a career out xenophobia and casual racism.

Then you have his co-conspirator - Boris and his "I love the EU, and it's fantastic that Turkey will be given the opportunity to join" documentary some years back, who is now going with Brexit because it gives him an opportunity to make money and become PM.

Unfortunately the utopian view that 'they need us more than we need them' hasn't been true since the 1950s and earlier. And, let's face it, we were a nation of nasty racist war-mongerers back then, so it's hardly something we should aspire to in the future.

I'm yet to meet a single Brexiteer who can actually give me a real example of how the EU makes their life worse. It's usually made up rollocks. But then you only have to look at the calibre of Brexit Party candidates - even they make it up as they go along and / or have beliefs that have absolutely no substance behind them. (Apparently the EU tell us what to teach in schools and have ruined our education system, ffs!)

Thing is, it's not WW2. The EU has presided over one of the longest periods of peace and prosperity across the continent in history.

Farage with his air raid sirens making it sound like we're under attack is perfect for his xenophobic and knuckle dragging followers. They love it.

Patriotic, innit.
