That said, what's the modern version of a civil war?

If we could all just stop overreacting and behaving like the apocalypse is coming, and save our hyperbole for when Trump presses the big red nuke button....

Aaron, you are right. There was a time that the news reported news. Now it sensationalises what might happen. Endless pundits with their predictions. Whipping the public up into nervous edge of seat exhaustion.


I also think that diplomacy has gone out of the window. The way Trump and Macron have been behaving for example. 


the problem is that the Genie is out of the bottle never to go back in.

Esther McVey has now gone, with Gove tipped to be next.
Appeaser Mayhem could be gone before the weekend.  :)
It looks like Gove will be replacing Raab.

An untrustworthy little shit if ever there was one.

You've just got to admire Mays resilience. She's been batting at the crease for a good few hours now, and no one seems to have delivered a googlie.
She's deranged, of course, but determined.

Replacing Theresa May won't solve the Brexit problem merely create a new one.

The best option available seems to be some sort of watery submissive compromise. :-\

More little Britain than Great Britain. :-X

People need to calm to the $%& down.  This is just the separation, not the divorce.

Very true, there's more than a faint whiff of asbestos about the place. Can't complain too much though, I'm getting a stack of full metal shutter cabinets from the finance office to deck out my new garage  :y

A friend has been having a go today and told me BREXIT  should just be cancelled, forget the whole thing he said.  ::)

My reply that the EU would screw us even more if we try to backtrack, IE the rebate would go, they'd try and force us to take the Euro, and all the opt out's and vetoes would go as well, (all of which would have evenually happened anyway had we voted to remain,) clearly hadn't occurred to him.

I don't think it has to most remain minded people either.  :-X

I believe, when the boot was on the other foot, that kind of talk was labelled "Project Fear".  ;D

Nice try Jimmy!  ;D

Senior EU policitions have already told us that we can remain, but 'it will be a different Europe' for us if we do. So more like Project Reality.....  :P

Ahh but you're forgetting, no facts, evidence, expert opinion or counter argument trumps typing Project Fear, PROJECT Fear, PROJECT FEAR!!!!

Much like "You lost, get over it" - its the internet trump card of our times.  :-*

I contend that if we were to back out now, the EU would be so grateful to have us back in the fold that the rebate will grow, they'll allow us to control EU migration and there will be an EU supplied unicorn for every household.

For anyone to state otherwise or claim I am being unrealistic is just scare mongering Project Fear nastiness, and I shall have no truck with it.  :y
