And, btw, it is the economic growth of the EU (sic!!) China, and Japan that makes up for the sluggish economies of the US and the UK.

Good-bye UK, with your slowly growing economy you have nothing to add to the EU. We don't need "useless" economies in the EU and we don't need "useless" people such as retirees in the EU. Only rich and highly skilled will get visas and continue to have the freedom of movement. Just like in good old times!!

It will be, won't it?

What sort of UK citizens are going to have either the skills which are in demand but can't be found anywhere else in the EU or the pots of money which will be required over and above the current requirement to have sufficient means not to be a burden on the state?

Answer : Elite UK citizens. With a possible exception for UK spouses of EU citizens, if EU member states are nice enough not to reciprocate the UK's income requirements.

Politicians were lock-step behind Remain - all of the major parties were fully supporting remain (well, Corbyn wasn't, but he at least pretended-to).

There are only a handful of posters who "contribute" to the "discussion" and of that handful, most are really rather stupid.

Are you all addicted to utterly pointless bickering about something over which you have no informed opinion and certainly no control?

Those of you who think they know how this farce will evolve are all wrong.

Except me.
Wise words - prior to the referendum I would not have wasted my time arguing with extreme Brexiters - like the overtly religious their position is a matter of faith and not logic. Ditto with these extreme remainers who are just a facsimile.

Oh, I did, and still do, because their winning the vote hasn't altered anything. As you rightly point out, the Brexiteer's position is one of blind faith and no logic.

I pointed out that extreme Brexiters, like extreme remainers, had positions of faith and not logic.

I hope you mind me saying so but you sound exactly like an extreme Brexiter to me, what with all those trite phrases you trot out. A mega conversion.

As part of deal with the US Fox will have to agree to lifting the EU ban on chlorinated washed chicken imports from the US.
Bulk imports of US chicken chlorinated washed chicken expected to bring down price of chicken in the supermarkets.
Another reason to consider reducing my meat intake.
Not sure what UK poultry producers will think about that.

The first thing they'll do is start washing their own chickens in chlorine.

But don't worry - we won't need to buy British chicken. We'll have a tariff free, frictionless trade deal with the EU so we'll just buy our chickens from there instead.

Of course we won't be able to sell chickens to the EU but c'est la vie.
