But I did not use " brexit means brexit " because there is not one of the 65million plus who lives in the UK has any idea what that means..
Those extreme brexiters who do not live in the UK are even more clueless..

I think it's quite self explanatory.

"Brexit means Brexit" means Brexit means Brexit. I mean, come on ...

Quite right. So let's hope for a reasonable agreement & I reckon that'll happen especially as it's in everyone's interests........ But I think things such as fishery limits might be difficult to resolve.

Actually, that's probably quite simple to resolve.

UK fishing trawlers to stay inside the UK's 200-mile Economic Exclusion Zone except where this is within another country's EEZ, in which case both countries shall consider the midway point between the countries as the boundary.

All other nationality fishing vessels to remain outside the EEZ. Though the RN will need additional resources to patrol the waters.

That's the logical answer for sure but I'll bet some other countries will:

A) Not agree
&
B) Not comply

I reckon it'll be a bone of contention for years to come. :(

It's actually an international law of the sea.

A) isnt going to be an issue at all. There's nothing to agree to.

B) is no different than the Spanish fishing fleets did in the 80's. But the technology to catch them is much better these days.

Well today is Battle of Britain Day when we celebrate shooting Junkers down

Yup..... it is indeed but I still reckon it'll be an ongoing bone of contention but I guess time will tell. :(

Thats crazy talk :lol: Would that come with the freedom of movement? If it did then the vast majority would be moving north to the USA and Canada with very few moving south to exotic countries like El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Venezuela and Suriname. Freedom of movement would be blocked by the USA in a heartbeat.

Their willingness to sacrifice for the country knows no bounds, and I'm sure that will be of great consolation to the homeless.

I'm sure it would. The US is already a federal state, it already has freedom of movement. It wasn't always that way though. There was a time when many US states felt they were "sovereign" and didn't want to be part of a "federal republic". They had a war over it. Texas still harbours those sentiments to some extent. But now it's the most powerful nation on earth.

Britain isn't the USA. It also doesn't want to be part of anything else. Britain already had that option (opt out from all " closer unity" exercises) but it voted out anyway. So be it.

Nonetheless, Britain should also not expect to be outside, yet trade as if it's inside. Britain is just Britain now. Leave won. Suck it up.

:thumbsup:

Judging by her response to the crap he's churned out lately I get the impression that Merkel would enjoy doing the honours and happily put the drunken baffoon out of his misery.

On the other hand having caused chaos and widespread consternation in her own country it's looking quite likely that she will be shot down first by her own electorate.

:cool:
