Indeed. Surely all the creativity has not been sucked from the British people, despite our Old Etonian overlords.

Has your sense of humour been surgically removed, or has the People's Court forbidden you to use it?

I've never heard of the People's Court. Care to explain?

No. You'll have to read back in a metric ton of threads about the EU. I think you know what a People's Court is in general, no? And you are aware of theme of "The People" throughout the brexit campaign and now "the People's Government" (Boris)? So put two and two together.

To be honest, that sounds like more of an American thing. "We the people" isn't that the expression? As you're in the USA, it's no wonder you're constantly confused and have no clue about contemporary Britain.

Celebrating that the UK will still be under EU law paying into the EU budget and have no say in EU matters and that for nearly a year ...
After that, NI will be under EU law and the ECJ and, to top it off, there will be a EU border within the UK that the UK will operate on behalf of the EU.
Well done Johnson, let's hope your trade talks will go as smoothly as your ''deal'' (= Mays deal +++) negotiation. EU will be grateful !

Be that as it may, it is your new PM's nomenclature.

Standards have fallen. What good is it having a Government that went to Eton if they can't manage basic grammar? Someone should be asking for their money back.

That I live in the Basque country is perhaps why I think it ironic that I will be celebrating leaving the E.U. not that the French Basques are particularly militant in that respect.

I shall be further helping the French economy by opening a bottle or two of Bordeaux’s finest and raising a glass to Boris Johnson for getting us out. Always assuming I will be still sober enough ; come 11.30 pm; I might even be able to give a roaring rendition of Rule Britannia!!

Anyway, I invite anyone with likewise feelings to also raise a glass with me, if not in person than in spirit, to the success of Britain in once again showing that democracy does exist and that the majority who voted to leave have, at last, gained their just victory.
Cheers!
You'll be celebrating early then! The UK is officially no longer a member of the EU at 11pm GMT, which will be midnight in France, Spain and the rest of the EU. But go ahead, enjoy your little victory while continuing to enjoy the benefits of EU membership.

Celebrating early? I've been celebrating since we won the referendum over three years ago. It was just a matter of time.

Oh, been "celebrating" for 3 years now? Is that why you guys can't seem to grasp that it's all been an imaginary "liberation"? The fog hasn't cleared yet? It will.
