I suppose one question is why do others want more countries to leave and the EU to break up, especially given the real time evidence of the problems caused in the UK, and will continue to cause.

Sydney, how do you think we went on as a country before we joined the EU, or the Common Market as it was called then?

I'll tell you; life was f*cking great in the 60s.

What's your point Steve, you want to go back to the 60s?

Yeah I know, which is why I was wounding why you said “we’ll get nothing”.

That would be the decade when France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands all overtook our economic performance? That 1960s? The one where we were known as the Sick Man of Europe?

 Great generation though Billy, World Champions at football, won the ashes, and gave the world the best music ever.  And all those countries did it on the back of the Yanks  mainly and our generosity and investment while our armed forces protected them from the Russians.
   We have paid through the nose for them.

And a triumph in Indonesia in 65 I guess, I wonder how the theme song for that went?

Because they see it as the only way not to look stupid for their decision to vote leave.

Life doesn't feel really much different on the ground in the UK though does it?  The problems are massively overinflated eg the fuel crisis that frankly didn't exist until the media made it exist, then when the panicking stopped again...

Poland shouldn't leave they benefit infinitely more financially than the UK.  However, the EU should listen to the concerns of the polish government and consider them much more than they have.  Is the EU led by all of its members' concerns or more interested in it's central core objectives than the concerns of member states?

  Makes you wonder who is the most stupid Kato, is it those who can't get over being losers in a democratic vote  and have voted Labour as well since 2009. They haven't achieved anything of note apart from voting for a racial party that's going nowhere and getting more and more upset.

The Labour Party is a bit like humanity itself.
Self imploding. Eating itself from within.
And still taking the time to point the finger at the other side for not doing what they think is right .
Pitiful.

Yeah, and who gave us that tag? Some arrogant mouthy gobsh*te in Europe?

It wouldn't surprise me, there's plenty of them.

You mean that I look so young that I couldn't possibly have been there?

I guess that depends on how close to the breadline you are sailing pud? there is no denying the deaths caused by Austerity and the ongoing hardship combined with brexit have put many in trouble.

Brexit. Metaphorically and now literally a pile of shite.

Might not be much difference on the ground for you. Elsewhere, I've got three projects running 3-6 months late because of difficulties importing materials from Italy and Germany. Had a very big impact on our cashflow and we've had to dip into our overdraft for the first time since 2010.
