    Dirty streets, terrible roads, some of the most deprived areas anywhere.
    Outside London, the country isn't at all a global player, but looks like what it is: a has-been.
    The same would be true of Victorian Britain.

After all the prize is Unions marching up and down the county, uncollected bins etc. and Union leaders sitting in Downing street with glasses of beer. It isn't as if the Labour Brexiteers give much of a sh*t about Brexit, their manifesto is mere platitudes.

    A second referendum is now almost inevitable.

    be afraid, be very afraid.....
    Jolly good.

    I don't care whether it's a coalition of chaos or a unity of order, if a proposition can command a majority in Parliament, it's perfectly fair.

    What's far more likely is that, in 20 years time, when most of the old feckers are pushing daisies and the EU hasn't collapsed (hmmm ), there could be a substantial majority for returning. In the mean time, suck it up, shirley

The NHS is already running into an acute crisis because their EU staff are leaving in droves.

    If the non-British EU nationals on our team left there would be a lot of British managers left to manage... 1 British dev and 2 ops... Considering the fact how important our project is to the FS in this country I find it rather amusing to watch what's happening in the UK after the Brexit referendum.

    That's OK, there won't be much in the way of FS anyway.

    For more than 100 years, MPs from the Irish Republican party Sinn Fein including Gerry Adams have refused to take their seats in the House of Commons as they officially do no recognise the rule of Westminster. However, all of that could be about to change as it has been reported that their seven MPs are on their way to London to begin the formal process of taking a place in parliament.

    Don't believe that for a moment. Sound like fake news to me.

    It does seem unlikely, but we do seem to be in unprecedented times.

    But who was behind the false claim? The site’s information page said it was recently set up to inform users about developments on Brexit, but every one of the 10 or so stories it publishes daily is geared towards attacking remain supporters or backing leavers.

    Is it run by the Southend News Network which has a linked ad account. That spoof site has at times slipped into fake news. When it reported last year that the M25 was to close for a week so it could be used for an endurance race, the story was picked up in good faith and reported on LBC radio.

    SNN is run by Simon Harris, an Essex teacher who until now has tried to guard his anonymity. He has confirmed to the Guardian that he owns the domain to YourBrexit, but said Walter White was the pseudonym of a 19-year-old student in Southend “who is fed up with the liberal elite”.

    “I don’t have time to check all the stuff he writes so he tends to make more mistakes,” said Harris.

    The student, who spoke to the Guardian on condition of anonymity, publishes YourBrexit from his bedroom while also studying for exams, but that doesn’t stop his site generating significant traffic.

    He claims that a million people click on YourBrexit each month and he has a reach through Facebook of 3 million. It earns him several hundred pounds a month in ad revenue although he says he would do it for free. “I’m fed up with the constant anti-Brexit news stories and decided to do something about it,” he said.
