    I think that the EU should give the UK a 3 year extension so that they can agree on the wording of a new referendum. Then another 1 year to discuss the result. Then, if the result is to leave, a further 3 to 5 years to negotiate the new Brexit.
    By then Corbyn and May will be gone and, hopefully the blustering cowardly mop-headed windbag and snivelling character from the nightmare of a Victorian child will also be gone.
    Translation : I want a new referendum,because I lost the first referendum , and if I lose the second referendum, I will demand a third, a fourth,etc .

      If he wants a referendum, he should have one, or two, or a dozen.

      If not he'll be crying about Deep State trampling all over his rights

          I said the something a few months ago..................I think the idea is to milk this thing for a few more years then declare it was all a mistake and they (the Brits) didnt really mean it and it was all a joke..............Sad to see a so called democratic society become the laughing stock of Europe...glad I dumped my Brit Passport and no longer claim "Dual Citizenship"....guess my grand kids can apply ...assuming the UK is still in exsistance................

            • Dunno if you can get it abroad but BBC Radio 4 just broadcast in the The Long View series an interesting history comparison between Brexit and the relations between King Offa of Mercia and Charlemagne.

              "Jonathan Freedland explores parallels between Brexit and a major dispute between King Offa of Mercia and Charlemagne, King of the Franks in the 790s. In the 790s, King Offa of the English kingdom of Mercia found himself at loggerheads with Charlemagne, King of the Franks on the other side of the Channel. Jonathan and guests examine how the dispute was resolved and explore how the difficulties compare to Britain's relations with the EU in the postwar era. Jonathan is joined by historian Dr Rory Naismith of King's College London and Sir Stephen Wall, former Private Secretary to John Major and former Europe advisor to Tony Blair. Stephen Wall was also Britain's ambassador to the EU in the late 1990s and is the author of an official history of Britain's relations with the European Community 1963-75."

                  Interesting - is there a written version ?

                  I would like to read it, not listen to it...

                  I think we can conclude that Brexit is now history - someone move this from Current Events to Medieval History if you will

                          It's currently a logistic nightmare in the transportation corridor between the UK and Europe. The temporary ferry program was a joke and was shelved before it even began the service.

                            Was that where they gave the contract to a company with no ferries ?

                              Ah yes another coup for Failing Grayling. What appears to have been the case was that this company was acting as a front for an existing ferry company whose bid would have been politically embarrassing but was prepared to lease ferries and crew to the front company
                              Grayling's civil servants appear to have been quite happy to see their minister dropped in the deep doodoo

                                Brussels - London 204 Euro if you want leave now - be there in 2 hours.

                                That's hardly a logistic nightmare is it ?
