Nothing really unforeseen here, but apparently some folk were not aware.

Also, the Smogg.

"One person tweeted “Wow, the irony! Leave .EU actively seeking to stay in the EU”, while others pointed out that Jacob Rees-Mogg’s firm is also among those to have set up premises in Ireland to hedge against the “considerable uncertainty” that Brexit may bring."

You are probably right. My anti-troll filter was on the blink earlier.

It is disingenuous to say £350 million, fish etc was why people voted to leave. There were many things said but the bottom line was to gain independence. That was why vote leave won. Not the crap I keep reading from disaffected people with a grudge!
Yes, some, maybe many people voted as yourself, for for a sense of "independence" which is fair enough. Some voted to control the high levels of EU migration (which was something of an issue). But the swing voters in that momentous decision were swayed by false promises and years of false grooming by the Europhobic media. That is why some of us objected to referendum result.

The Moderna vaccine is expected to be approved for use in the UK within the next week but the UK will not receive any shipments until April - because the UK is not included in the EU bulk order. EU countries expect to receive their first deliveries of this vaccine (which has a higher effectiveness percentage than the Astra Zeneca one) next week.

No that can't possibly be right. The EU approving a vaccine before the UK did? Surely not.

You missed the point but I'm not going to labour it.

Thanks for the effort though.

Believing that Brexit would "give their country independence" was the false promise, the nonsense and the misrepresentation.
