    If cost was a concern she could of course just tweet it for free.

    Or post it on the UK's Facebook page. Would it get 16 million "likes"?

    The European parliament will veto any Brexit deal that prevents EU citizens who move to the UK during the next two years from having the same rights to live and work in Britain as those already in the country.

    The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, and MEPs are understood to be concerned by reports that the British government wants 29 March, when it officially notifies the EU of its intention to leave, to be the “cut-off date” for the free movement of people.

    It has been repeatedly reported that the British government believes that 29 March 2017 is the appropriate date after which EU nationals moving to the UK would have rights different from those already in the country, although government officials say publicly that that is a matter for the negotiations.

    Teresa May wet her knickers over this one. Especially this news came just after some of her hard Brexit MPs threw a hissy fit this morning.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Scottish Independence referendum

    OK we should start looking at new names for the post EEXIT/WEXIT country

    BREXIT doesn't seem an appropriate term any more.

    I'm alright Jack
