Good job all the other signatories have so much experience surrendering they can help us through this new experience.

This is precisely the sort of experience the British badly need.

I am afraid that we British are not terribly adept at the whole "surrender" thingy, but no doubt there is a long established EU procedure that deals with such issues.
If not we could always ask the French......or the Germans.....or the Italians etc......

That is if all the EU movers and shakers are not too bogged down with trying to organise that big piss-up they were trumpeting the other day.

As we are surrendering then probably a nice soft french Brie would be the most appropriate.

There is first time for everything.

Britain is surrendering hundreds of years of European policy which was designed to ensure France never works closely with Germany, being in EU was continuation of that successful policy in the time when another continental war would have been suicidal.

All that surrendered.

Brexit will represent Britain's first major humiliation since losing the American war of independence.

Not sure leaving a project determined to achieve French & German European domination by stealth is actually a defeat.

Obviously our Bremoaners have made up their mind we have already lost, I suppose they are following through ........

The whole point of joining was to prevent such domination, withdrawing enables French and Germans achieve the goal!

It's not a defeat - it's a surrender.

Depends if you believe its Britain's job to keep fixing Europe?

EU humiliates the UK (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/eu-halt-brexit-talks-michel-barnier-brussels-david-davis-a7847641.html)


EU diplomats have hit out at Britain’s failure to agree it must pay a hefty financial settlement for Brexit, suggesting the controversy will “stall” the talks.

Most of the older generation, you know, those that the Grauniad tells you were the majority of those that voted LEAVE, actually did compulsory history at school.

Back in those day, you see, it was not considered sacrilegious to be taught about British history, warts and all.

Once it became trendy to study "Media" and "Humanities" and "Drama" instead, all semblance of pride in our national identity began to drift away.

That also might explain why so many of the millenials voted REMAIN. Blinkered philistine pig-ignorance of their country's past.

HTH

The citizenship test is ludicrous. We should be checking that people understand our major laws and believe in our core principles, not asking daft questions about who built the Tower of London etc.

One test for all makes no sense either. They should vary according to where people come from, focusing on any major differences of laws and cultures from our own.

Public sector pay squeeze will continue.
Combined with negative Brexit effects, that will mean Corbyn will get in.
History will judge that the Brexit vote set off the acceleration of the end of a once great county.

HTH, BIKIW

The test was indeed stupid - basically test of memory, small book to buy and all answers there.

A better test would be to serve 1 year in the British Army.
