A succinct definition of what "Brexit means Brexit" actually means, from one who should definitely know, Nige, outgoing leader of UKIP :

Ukip elects Diane James as new party leader | Politics | The Guardian

So there you have it, folks. Now let's get on with it.

Well at least the new leader supports democracy and freedom of speech.

"One of her first acts as leader was to tear up the conference agenda in order to remove her rival leadership candidates and Neil Hamilton, the leader of Ukip in the Welsh assembly, from speaking slots on the main stage"

Will we be building a wall at sea to keep our fish separate from European fish?

Did you see the date, proof again if needed brexiters are yesterdays men and women.
Just hint as your memory must be slipping.
UK banking crisis and global recession.
Remember them.

Is Angela Merkel's political capital running out? - BBC News


"Angela Merkel is in for a turbulent autumn.

Her approval ratings are at a five-year low, and she is smarting from a humiliating regional election result, in which her conservatives (CDU) were beaten into third place by the surging anti-Muslim party Alternative for Germany "

Is that an admission that things other than brexit can have repercussions on exchange rates ?

I did see the date hence the remark "Long prebrexit" or is that beyond your comprehension or just would not leave you the opportunity to make a snidey remark?

Another fact for you to knock, the pound fell to below €1.10 in September 2010 again I think you may possibly agree nothing to do with brexit

It was a the effect of a global crisis whereas today its self inflicted.
Like the difference between being hit by a runaway car or in the case of brexit jumping in front of a speeding truck with your eyes closed.

Bratislava Blues: What next for the bickering EU? - BBC News

"At EU summits, leaders traditionally pose for what's known as the "family photo".
But, as is the reality behind most family snaps, these 27 kids are variously bickering, sulking and winding each other up, while Jean Claude Juncker, the helicopter mum, and Donald Tusk, the more laissez-faire dad, fall out over parenting techniques.
Yet these are difficult times in the EU with its Brexit, migrant and monetary woes.
'Turbulent times'

"An existential crisis" said European Commission President Juncker this week.
"Turbulent times marked by crisis and conflict," said European Council President Tusk, the host of today's summit."


Pretty well sums up what a tragic goddam shambles the whole EU crock of shit has turned out to be.

Poll shows most Europeans sympathize with Syrian refugees | Reuters

Regarding AFD, it's easy to find articles saying they've made surprising gains, but hard to find actual poll numbers. I did find this though.

Germany election: Merkel challenged by anti-migrant AfD | BBC News



One voting intentions poll showed the centre-left Social Democrats first with 28%, while the AfD edged ahead of the CDU with 23% to 20%.
Yep. Big gains from the previous 5% and 10%, but these still aren't winning numbers folks. Far from it. Its not inevitable.

I was wondering about the effect the mobility of fish might have on our ability to keep them in UK waters but it did strike me that perhaps the fish will be able to sense that the waters around the UK, no longer being considered Community waters, would suddenly have some extra properties. Maybe one of the H molecules will turn into Hope and they'll suddenly feel much more energetic and lively and all deadened and lethargic if they stray out into EU territory. Like the difference between the bright new UK economy and the sluggish Eurozone.

Brexit is the effect of a European crisis, the failure of the EU to listen to it's members and it is going to have major knock on effects

But you can keep living in your dream world denying the truth
