Which was only "advisory" n'est ce pas.

You do know what the word "advisory" means...?

The 2019 General Election became a defacto second referendum with the electorate underlining the wish to get out of the disgusting EC and see the return of our independence and sovereignty.

Mais oui.

Just like the 1975 referendum on whether the UK should remain in the EEC

Which was a horse of a very different color than the loathsome EC.

Hopefully this is the end of this nonsense but if there is a recurrence then surely the French disrupters should be called to account.

To use the consequences of the infantile behavior of the French border patrol as an argument for the Remain cause just does not hold water.

Everyone was queuing to cross the French Border.  As a sovereign nation it is up to the French to decide how best to staff that border crossing.  It's not their problem that this caused huge delays and queues in a third party country.

Can't and wouldn't argue with that.

You should be pleased that you got what you voted for.

While waiting for hours and hours in the queues to enter France all the Brexiteers could always get out their blue passports and admire them

There is an index of how "powerful" a passport is based on visas to enter that are required etc etc. I believe the expression is "without let or hindrance" which for UK folks post brexit has become something of an oxymoron.

The latest table:

Just remember, Mr Belfield, the Crown Court judge told you to be careful what you posted on line between your conviction and sentence.

Well of course they are free to not staff the border crossing adequately and piss off and inconvenience citizens of a third party country.

As is the right of anyone to assert that the disruption it causes is somehow an unavoidable consequence of Brexit

"Third Country Status" was always going to be a great deal less than full membership of the EU.

Absolutely amazed that your diligent brexit research failed to reveal this very obvious "difficulty" that comes with leaving the EU.

What's your excuse...?

I don’t need an excuse.

Sometimes in life you have to make choices. You can take the “easy” option or you  can do what’s right.

Continue with the status quo because you have no self belief and you are scared to let go. Or set yourself free to take the opportunities and face the challenges that that offers, both for yourself and for future generations.

The “easy” option is always cut and run.

The right option, with all that may have been wrong with the EU, was to stay, fight for change from the inside. That’s not the status quo. That’s facing the challenges.

Running is not setting yourself free. The exact opposite.

So what’s your excuse for cutting and running?

Third world STATE that the UK is entering into is due to awful and corrupt UK government.  Third world STATUS is simply the relationship with the corrupt EC.

How is the "EC" corrupt?

Please no speculative lies and nonsense from the Daily Mail, the Express, the Sun and the Telegraph. Actual arrests leading to convictions. Thanks.

The UK has been fighting for years ( decades) and facing the challenges. From opting out of the social chapter , to not adopting the Euro, to exemption from the principle of “ever closer union” in Cameron’s renegotiation package ( that worked for him didn’t it!)

It has become obvious over the years that the UK and the EU have different ambitions for the Union and that the UK view would never prevail. After all why should it as one country out of 28?

So it’s time to acknowledge the reality of the situation and for the UK to leave the EU and plough it’s own furrow, which is nothing like “ cutting and running”.

All these recriminations and bitterness from the Remainers is totally unnecessary. 

The decision has been made by the people of the UK and implemented by the Government.

Let it be as much an amicable parting as it can be and for each party to commit to working together, outside the confines of the EU, on matters of mutual interest.

As I said in a previous post once the new relationship has bedded in we will all be wondering what all the fuss was about.
