    This is almost certainly me just kidding myself, but I've got a feeling Brexit won't happen. I mean, it surely can't happen. Take away all the ultra horror stories, it is still an economic slow death. We need a successful vote of no-confidence and a successful general election to stop it. Then we have to convince the EU that we are serious about staying, because they could say 'hard luck, you've pissed us around too much so, too late'. BTW, I think they would accept us back [fingers crossed].

    Just thought - they may be legally bound to accept us back.

    Has anyone done one of those petitions to Government that says "I voted leave and I've changed my mind, I'm very sorry" you only need 100,000 signatures right?

    If we revoke Article 50 before the deadline there’s no question, we are still full members. If we leave, and like you I refuse to believe we actually will, it’s a completely different situation, and the terms of re-entry will be nowhere near as good as those we currently enjoy.

    I wish I had yours and TSS’ confidence that Brexit won’t happen.
    The likes of buffoon, Mogg and Gove have no scruples and will gladly screw the public over to make a few millions for themselves and their mates.
    Should they lose a no confidence vote yet try to force it through, it would be great if the EU blocked it as being undemocratic.

    It's not confidence St.B. I wish it was. It's me trying to stop my brain from exploding at the complete illogical lunacy of Brexit, by trying to calmly think through the moves towards remaining.

    I'm not normally superstitious, but I'm all out of logic. So fingers crossed, toes crossed, everything crossed.

    A racist, an adulterer, and a criminal walk into a bar... The bartender asks,


















    "What can I get you Mr. President?" :1980_boogie_down:

    Grow your own. If there are food shortages due to Brexit, watch garden plots up and down the country getting raided by gangs.

    Don't say that. I may have to vote leave now. I like a low carb diet.

    Is this Trump or Clinton? :emoticon-0127-lipss
    There is so much you can call Trump, yet I really do not get the racist thing. For 5 decades the black community were kissing his arse for endorsements and writing songs about him, mainstrem tv tripping over themselves to have him on thier shows, the likes of Joyce Beyhar gushing over him yet he decides to run against that dragon Clinton and suddenly he is a racist and white nationalist. I would be interested in seeing your no1 reason as to why he is a racist. Criminal also, for me a criminal is someone who has been convicted of a crime. Trump has never been convicted of anything, a few cases were paid off but nothing that others have not done, im sure he has done some seriously dodgy things, but as everyone thinks he is such a dumbass, he seems to cover his tracks pretty well
