1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

As somebody who voted for Brexit, im relatively ok with this deal on paper. Its not the hard Brexit where we just walk away like some wanted, but that would have just been cutting our noses off. Then again, it depends on the reasons a person voted for Brexit.

We are aligned up until 2019 arent we, and after that we are on our own?

To be honest, as long as we arent part of this USofE, its job done in my eyes: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/dec/07/martin-schulz-united-states-of-eur


But 30-50 billion mun FFS! Would you have voted out if you were told 100% it would cost that much then have to pay more for deals we were already getting whilst in the EU, except this time we don't have any voice or influence. People will look back in 100 years and say "what a bunch of stupid, selfish coonts".

It's sheer madness..

There a certain amount of cognitive dissonance going on about this “deal”. Both hard brexiters and remainers/ soft brexiters are claiming it as a triumph for their point of view. In reality it’s nothing of the sort. It’s not even a deal as such, more of hodge potch of pockets of ambiguity. The crucial issue of the Irish border has been kicked firmly into the long grass for now because no one still has a clue how to deal with it. If they can’t decide the entire U.K. will stay in “regulatory alignment” with the single market meaning we’ll keep all the current rules and laws and adopt new and amended ones.

Still. Taking back control eh.

We would be paying in anyway. Its done in instalments, so no lump sums

Absolutely spot on Clasey.
I am frankly amazed the EU have allowed such a hotch potch to go live. Maybe they think life will be much easier for them with a weak PM, and a work shy lazy career politician running the show. The same almost certainly goes for the DUP.
That is the only reason I can see for them throwing her a very dodgy life line.
The devil is in the detail. Unfortunately there is no detail here. Just like Davis and his non existent preparatory work.
The plus for me is the Tories have been backed into a corner and we could end up with the softest of soft Brexits. Unless they walk of course then we are all Donald Ducked.
Polls are already showing that the majority would now remain in the EU given another choice.
In view of this shocking clusterfeck I think another vote should take place once the final picture is known and before we go into the transition period.
We can then put the referendum option in a box never to be opened again.

It's not what it has agreed though, it's what it's ruled out.

I can't imagine why anyone in favour of hard Brexit would be claiming it as a triumph, since that is now impossible.

Either a deal is agreed which (due to the constraints in place over Ireland and Northern Ireland) has to involve effectively remaining within a free trade and free movement arrangement, or there'll be no deal, in which case the same applies, albeit it's described as alignment.

Ha. Spose my choice of words could have been better there. The whole deal reeks of 'permanent alignment' anyway.

Well it's permanent unless we want to rip up the Good Friday agreement at some point in the future (which I suspect we don't)...

Whether we call it alignment, or agreement, or anything else, it amounts to the same thing.

I'm pleased that we are not going to get a hard Brexit, (I didn't want any Brexit), but the whole thing is a farce.

It's like me deciding I don't want my sky subscription anymore, paying them to take my sky box away, paying them the same amount a month as I do now (forever), but they can now decide what channels I watch as they have control of my box now rather than me.

Stop confusing Paul with all your fancy women words.

He was promised a red, white and blue Brexit and that what he wants. The fact that he doesn't really understand any of what is going on has nothing to do with it.

The people have spoken after all.

As I said, cognitive dissonance. Looks at yesterday’s Daily Mail (“REJOICE”) and Express (“HUGE BREXIT BOOST”.)

It doesn’t matter to those papers or their readers or the dumbass likes of Pikeypaul that this “deal” is utterly meaningless in every tangible way.

Both are quite worrying though.

Why have we changed the colour of our passports costing an enormous amount of money when we could have done this at any point when in the EU costing far less as they could have been made optional?
