"Have a nice life"

I mean, that's got to be sarcastic, right? Do grown ups on the interwebs say this? Is the next step saying that someone won't be invited to your party? Or that you aren't best friends?

I'm just not sure anything could be more serious than telling someone to "have a nice life".

I suspect there will be lots of rats with torn out toe nails as they desperately attempt to keep the UK attached to the EU
As opposed to jumping overboard

We haven't had a good flounce for ages. It's just like the good old days.

Careful you are setting yourself up for the argument of well if you did care about the UK that much then why are you living in a foreign country?
Same as Brits in Canada moaning about their pensions not being indexed. Which Govt to blame for not signing the reciprocal agreement whereas Brits in the USA have their UK pension indexed.
I chose to live in another country for whatever reason so really should we have a say in what the UK wants?

... This lot here know exactly what I think of the UK and why FL, so it's no bother to me.
Besides which Eric intended it as a poll thread.

However, and no criticism of Eric's great idea for a straw poll, I see there's no option for Gaelic or Welsh speakers .... (from a diverse society allegedly called the United Kingdom).

Maybe option 4 should be "Delayed (again)". In the absence of that option, I voted 3.

My preference at this time is no-deal.

Doesn't it just say ''Still in the EU'' ... which can mean either delayed or remain ?
