To the point:
It would be better to have no political party in full charge of BREXIT, as this politicises the matter based on a binary referendum question.

Choices should be:
*An independent commission
*An all-party working group

This would mean that, proportionally, all views within the UK are considered and negotiation can take place based on that. That sounds like a very British way of progressing. If Labour, coalition excluding Conservatives, or Conservatives win, I would maintain the above suggestion.

Leaving this negotiation process to a single political party, of any colour and creed, is a disaster waiting to happen - but we will not know the largesse of this mistake until looking back from the future. What say ye?

The Tories made the bed. It is an outrage anyone other than them should be asked to fix it. Were the tables turned the Tories would be screaming at Labour for the mess they've caused.

Do keep in mind, the Tories never expected the referendum to become a vote against the establishment.

It wasn't a vote against the establishment. It was a vote against the status quo. The establishment will do just fine out of Brexit.

Not so much "coming on", more "touting for business". You get the full works for 10 B&H and a Bacardi Breezer, allegedly. :smokin

Does sound like it. (We're all used to her saucy advances.)

Both campaigns were very badly run, but in very different ways.

Part of me thinks that they fully intended to leave the EU in order to benefit their contacts and donors. Causing a country to destabilise does, as investors know, benefit those investors if they place appropriate bets on the recovery.

In this way it would also seem plausible that they likely wanted Scotland to vote for independence, what with the future prospects of oil money progressively decreasing in future, leaving them without the semi-socialist thorn in the neck.
