The variation of a Slade song,
I wish it could be brexit any day.

There must be many more.

Juncker, the red-nosed zealot
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

Post Brexit any specific, individual, interim arrangements (yet to be made) can be changed if necessary later.

And foreigners, too! Lest we not forget what clinched the vote (to everyone's surprise).

Who cares about Brexit. It won't change a thing.

Davis says the government has not produced any impact assessments on Brexit on UK - Business Insider

I know. Everywhere you go, there's foreigners. I mean, all my neighbours are Spanish. A few Germans in the village too. We are probably the only "not foreigners" in the whole town!!! The whole world's going to hell.

No,your brexit may have been about the ECJ, 90% of those who voted to leave ( maybe an under estimate) had other reasons.

Can't wait to see the details of the agreement reached in the early hours.
EU concessions will be treated as victories by the extreme brexiters and those by May as betrayal of everything they voted for.
How much as the UK agreed to as the divorce bill?
What exactly is happening with the Irish border.
This is going to run and run.

Farage, this is not brexit, brexit has been kicked down the road for at least 8 years, when it comes to the ECJ , May is a liar.
Then a veiled threat, there will be a general election before the final terms are agreed.
The fun continues.

Sounds like another lot of fine words and no detail, change the name on the door, but not the contents - so the interesting thing will be what the penalties are for non-compliance.....

It feels like arguments have been internalised (wait for rows with Scotland and Wales regarding single market issues) and/or kicked down the road - everything stays as it is on Day 1 and every variation thereafter argued on specifics.

If this is the case, it seems to be the type of fudge that May & co had been driving at - but there must have been some very cast-iron guarantees to allow the EU to move on....

Juncker was positively gushing about May and her talents. It's almost as if he would like her to stay in power.
