    And they are the ones you, and people like you, have fallen for, hook, line and sinker.

    You will rightly point out that if the EU negotiators are self-serving and untrustworthy then it clearly important to be dealing with the UK's interests inside the EU rather than outside.

    However, don't beat yourself up too much over only just realising you voted the wrong way. It will cause damage. Hundreds of thousands of people will lose their jobs (in the EU as well as the UK) but when all is said and done it wasn't down to you - over 17 million other idiots made the same stupid mistake - so don't feel quite so bad as you obviously do right now after realising Boris is taking us off the cliff edge.

The EU guys are merely looking after their own citizens; they have no responsibility to do right for us, that's up to Bojo and his posh Tory chums.

    After all this time you still don't get it. You voted for this. You voted to leave the EU. You voted to 'take back control' so that our politicians make decisions on our behalf and the EU no longer do so. You won fella. get over it; if you don't like the way the negotiations are going have a word with your Tory MP.

    Or do what us remainers are doing, pull up a chair, crack open the and enjoy the fun.
    Can you point to the post where I said any of the UK politicians are any better?

    So now we are out of Europe and our politicians can no longer hide behind the EU and make excuses we can start to address the problems with UK politics.

    If we had stayed in the EU we would never have got this chance.

    Now does it make it clearer why a lot of people voted to leave the EU?

    It is not that the UK is so much better than the EU but that we would have absolutely no chance of bringing about real change and making the country better for everyone if we had stayed in the EU.

    Does that make sense to you? Are you starting to see the bigger picture now?

    Didn't say you did. That's what makes you a complete numpty .... you've voted to give our morally corrupt MPs even more control.

    You don't believe that. If you did you wouldn't be following their current rhetoric and blaming the EU for all our problems. 99% of the problems in this country lie at the doors of Westminster. The only change we will see, is in future this figure will be 100%

    It's always been crystal clear. The people who voted out are inherently racist, and believe the lies of the Tories. Any ideas when we'll get that £350m a week for the NHS, or when all those wonderful trade deals will be signed?

    Not true, although I see you do believe all the Tory lies. We had a seat at the EU table, we were one of the drivers of EU rules. We had a veto. We were not rule takers, we were rule makers. The problem is our fixed term parliament, and the short termism of Westminster. This won't change when we leave the EU.

    Oh yes. I see the picture. You're as delusional today as you always are. You swallow everything you read in the right wing press as gospel and you can't think for yourself. Thanks again for giving me some light entertainment before I start work this morning

    Workers have been on strike since early May, staging protests after Nissan only partially resumed production following a temporary shutdown due to the coronavirus.

    Believe that, if it makes you feel better.

    I can't believe you actually believe that. We don't have 'a veto' - those are now opt-outs, and we only had two of any significance; the Euro and Schengen.
    If you miss it that much, you could always apply to become an EU citizen. It must surely be better than being surrounded by a bunch of window-licking racists.

    Oh my sides

    Probably only useful thing we managed is Article 50.

    I suggest you watch EU voting some time.
