It depends entirely on what the 'master' has promised. By that I mean Trump. He showed his hand, altho clumsily ,at the state visit. He immediately mentioned and 'backed' Bo Jo for PM, and Farage. for ?. His two 'puppets' ( as I have said before ) Boris thought it expediate to keep out of the limelight though, and not meet him( at least in public) Don't want to make it too obvious who is pulling his strings. If all goes to plan though Boris will become PM . If that happens he will receive a great deal of help from the US in making Brexit happen. Boris has already approved of Big Pharma moving in on the NHS. so I guess he stands to make some money there. Of course getting out of the EU suits Moggy and his company down to the ground.What pies the rest have fingers in ? who knows, who cares by now.

What about the "failure of ornithology"? It's roughly the same thing. And equally weird.

Globalism? A lot of people who voted for Brexit make quite a big deal of forging more links with the rest of the world. They say we're constrained by the EU and also (rather strangely) that we have a racist immigration policy imposed by our membership of it.

There are Eurosceptic organisations calling themselves Global Britain and Global Vision.

The pro Brexit Tories have adopted and pushed the whole "UK going global" thing.

Doesn't seem to bode too well for anyone who thinks globalism is a failure and leaving the EU is the solution

It's obvious that the vote to leave the EU had little to do with leaving the EU. The EU was just in the way.

That's what pisses of remoaners. We are doing completely the wrong thing for completely the wrong reason.

Have you cancelled yiur UKIP membership and joined the Brexit party 😂
Her red lines come from the analysis of voting intention undertaken straight after the referendum - the Lord Ashcroft analysis etc.

In the referendum run-up some erroneously thought that the EU would be sensible and not intransigent and that a logical membership of the SM would be available without FOM being required. The EU decided against that and hence any SM option was not available. People were not thinking of the WA lock-in prior to the referendum.

I'm not a member of any party, but have voted for all three of the old-skool main parties in the past.

The blue "flag" looks more like the EU's. Perhaps it's EU citizens leaving Calais trying to get into the UK in the future?

Seems logical, since England is the bestest place ever. Sunlit uplands and all that. And explains the 70 million turks now living and causing traffic jams in Manchester.

You use that every time as an excuse to belittle any brexit argument, or any argument that isn't entirely in favour of what you think should happen. Why anybody would take you at all seriously is a mystery .

No one does - Ami's juvenile trolling is an amusement that anyone can be so triggered, but that's it. Whenever approached with logic and fact she just crumbles back into the usual petulant anti-English diatribe - she's no different than those extreme wingnut brexiters before the referendum who thought everything wrong in the world was down to the EU.
