    Yes, Britain voted for Brexit, Britain needs to pay the price for it. Where is that throwing toys out of a pram?

    You want to buy a car, you have to pay for it. You want to pay less for it, you need to negotiate.
    You want to leave a club, leave it. You want to leave a club but then say the club is being nasty for saying "OK, go", then you're not very good at negotiating, you poor ickle snowflake.

    If I understood you are talking about a concern raised here.

    But the problem is not the toys coming from the UK. The problem you should raise is: This is a business and I'm (as a member) not going to buy your toys if I found cheapest toys from China (oh I'm sorry this was a mistake) I mean from France for example. But if you join the market as an external member offering cheaper toys than France, I could eventually buy yours.

    I decided to cancel my gym membership.

    But I can still use the gym and all its facilities in full - just on "less favourable" terms. I'm not stuck to a long term contract I can't get out of, for starters. I just pay to go when I want to - the other gym members aren't being hostile about it, the gym themselves are happy too. And if I want to use a different gym, no problem - much more flexibility for me.

    (Better totty at the other gym, but not all the equipment is as good).

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    You mean we are living with the results of the vote in the referendum, and some who voted to leave are now trying to shirk the responsibility for their actions by passing the blame on to others?

    You either have to accept the responsibility for your actions and learn to live with them, or be a snowflake. Which one is it?

    The "blame" for what exactly?

    The whole process is progressing in much the way I expected it to. And I suspect that is the view of most Brexiters.

    The only ones playing a "blame game" are those remainers that pigheadedly refuse to acknowledge and accept the result.

    Bunch of snowflakes the lot of them.
