I am seriously worried. I think we are going to suffer great financial hardship and heaven knows what else.I`m a afraid I was been taken in by the right wing press.We live and learn.

You were posting anti-Brexit posts before the referendum, so I don't believe a word you say.

I dunno... It's got the trademark Paul Newman lack of extra space after a punctuation point. As well as the French accent grave - the downward sloping one instead of apostrohies. Two mistakes that he makes in just about every post. I think that he's trying to hoodwink - such a crafty guy. Painting this touching picture of a despairing Brexiteer. He should be with MI5.

Pn also Baldrick in the last Brexit thread. Look at the punctuation. The same pattern. I've never seen anyone else ever make of using French accents as apostrophies.

Perhaps we should take a poll on that. I'm not bothered by what he says - everyone's entitled to their opinion - but I can't bear the space hogging. If he can't get his point across in a few simple sentences, he should give up.

Oh, really? What did you vote for then, half in and half out. Come on, we know you voted Remain but think this is a clever little ploy.

Stay calm old boy, we have to defend ourselves from European laws and European bureaucratics as well as fundamental terrorism. It's good we can be British again, an island nation. I feel like it's the Battle of Britain all over again, Onwards we march to victory! Tally ho !!! Bandits twelve o'clock.

It's good that we are out so we don't have to keep entering and coming last in the Eurovision Song Contest time and time again.

We will probably continue to enter the song contest, as it is not connected to membership of the EU. But once we are out we will no longer be a puppet on a string.

Yeah, we will still enter the Eurovision Song contest, and instead of finishing 3rd from last, we will finish last. Even if we resurrected The Beatles, we would probably only receive a token point from Ireland.

Of course doing badly in the Eurovision Song contest is highly entertaining anyway, so I don't think this is an undesirable consequence of Brexit.

I voted out to save our British pound. I didn't want it to be affected by the current Euro crisis. Greece last year and it could easily be another country this year.

I only voted OUT because of the promise to spend the money on the NHS. It now looks like that won't be happening.
What will Mrs May be spending it on?

So your vote was pointless then Sussex Lad, because we still had the pound, were never going to join the Euro, and have not been affected by the Euro crisis for some time now. We were/still are in the EU, not the EMU.

I voted without really knowing what anyone was talking about or whether anyone was telling the truth and without any idea of the impact on me and my family if we stayed or left. I think this is the same as most people whose minds were already made up. Look at this way, if it all goes pear shaped in the coming years there will be no where to hide. One only has to look at Mr Tony Blair to realise how quickly someone can move from Saint to Sinner or Mr David Cameron to how successful David Blaine's disappearing lessons can be. Now we have voted, Article 50 is inevitable and we must work to make this successful along with EU negotiations (unlikely as we can agree our end but 27 countries need to agree theirs) this may only be possible if Jeremy Corbyn disappears up his own Jam Pan. My greatest worry is knowing we have no leaders, with any intellect, understanding, imagination or steel.

My vote was out, as I believe parliament should make our laws up and not Europe. Trump is a strong man and we need someone like him on our side to negotiate to be completely out. We should walk away from Europe totally.

Yeah, lets buy everything from Canada and Australia, and ship it as cheaply as it comes in on lorries through the channel tunnel! Oh, hang on, that's impossible, what a stupid person I am!
As a matter of interest, how do Brexiteers think about dealing with French Canadians?

I agree we should trade with the commonwealth countries, back to our roots. French Canadians are good people I don't see them as problematic, I know a few, nice folks really. For me I did a protest vote against the conservative government.
