How is Post Brexit Britain Doing so Far?

😂😂😂😂 as I have been saying since pre referendum vote in 2016 - a few bumps in the road - early , and then we move on to a new era .

The e.u knows that this govt means business , and a deal will be done .

All the scare tactics have suddenly subsided - surprise,  surprise 

My worry is for the long term future of the e.u as 27 

Britain will be fine .

There will be no scottish independence either 

In brexit day , there will be no singing or dancing - were british .

I will just raise a glass or a can to the sky ,and say thank god for that 😊

Quietly - there are many serious operators waiting to do business with an independent  u.k 

The commonwealth will grow closer again, which will be great

And it took a general election to sort it out .

Now move along - its yesterdays news , a bit like stories in the guardian .

Britain is moving forward

Apparently the unicorn poop cures cancer.

A guy I met hitch hiking told me so.

They are all going to be millionaires this time next year.

So, just to get this straight in my head.

When you quote the guardian it's good.

When others quote it it's bad?

Is that right?

I voted to remain, never bored anyone to death with it. Fully accepted the brexit vote, moved on and never doubted brexit would happen.  I never said the EU won’t back down although I’m not aware they suddenly have?  I never believed Corbyn would get a majority and I’m thankful he didn’t, I voted for Boris. I’m not sure what deal you are referring to when you say there won’t be a deal but again, I’m not aware that we suddenly have a deal with the EU. If we have that’s great news. I would never say what will happen after brexit as I, just like everyone else, doesn’t know what will happen. We know what we believe and hope will happen but we don’t know.  I hope our country blooms and it was the right decision.  I choice to vote remain would still be the same today.  I guess we can all only decide which way to go based on the homework we do on the subject.  Total respect for the winners, the vote was fair.

They haven't, and there is nothing from COmmonwealth countries either. 

Australia are playing a canny game with the UK, they know they hold all the cards.  So far all they've done is reject Johnson's rubbish about free movement between the two, because they envisage lots of British freeloaders in Sydney and Melbourne, and they're trying to sew up a deal with the EU first and foremost.  The UK will be looking for favourable media coverage to satisfy the likes of Bunbury, but I've read the Australian DFAT Brexit document and it is very clear that they expect to be able to make a deal majorly in their favour.  They also owe us a kicking from when we cut them out when we joined the EU in the 70's, causing them huge economic damage....showed them no loyalty.

There's at least another 2 years of this and the transition period won't change anything, it's only there to protect the UK.  The average EU trade deal takes 7 years, the UK now want to do it in less than one even though they were part of the crew that took 7 years.  It's not hard to see what's going to happen......come back in 12 months and see if anything is different and how we change behaviour when we're on the verge of crashing out.

It’s backwards, not forward.  The data doesn’t lie

The post was certainly not directed at you tulip , or the vast majority of people who voted remain 

Some of whom are good friends of mine 

It was directed at a handful of doughnuts who frequent this board .

They know who they are 😂

As long as these threads keep getting dredged up by the ‘winners’, there are going to be sour grapes.  Instead of grinding their/your boots in, maybe time to move on... Encourage the wounds to heal...

Just 25 days to go so thought I would park this here ready for B-Day.

Will we disappear over the so called "cliff edge" into fire and brimstone ?

Who things just carry on pretty much as normal?

Things will go on pretty much as normal. I think there will be major negative consequences, but like all economic matters, whether it turns out to be good or bad, it will take a long time for the full impact to work its way through.

I also predict a lot of people won't understand that, and will be banging on about how Brexit hasn't made a difference (whether that's for better or for worse).    It'll be the same idiots who elect a new government thinking they'll solve all their problems, then get upset when nothing's fixed a year later.   It takes a long time to turn the ship of state.

If I ever quote the guardian it is a statement to the sheep that "even the guardian says so". 

Can't you see that?

And that will be a handy excuse the remainers will be able to fall back on.

In 5 years time they can keep saying we haven't seen the negative effects yet.

You have stated that yourself. I thought you couldn't wait for your "brexit bonus" or have you swung the other way again?

Grow up simmo and stop the personal comments.

We are specifically speaking about the north of England.

The north of England won't get a Brexit bonus. Brexit may be positive for the south, but the north is screwed.

Post a link then telling us how the north will benefit from brexit then with some sound economic studies.

Boris may throw the north a bone of two. But brexit is pursuing free market economics, which is Thatcherism. Please explain how Thatcherism has benefited the north. The south did brilliantly out of Thatcherism, as it will out of brexit.

But the north is screwed.

So you quote the guardian when it agrees with you, but not when it doesn't. Says more about you than the guardian I'm afraid. Have a think about that. It is important.
