We are talking to our European friends and partners in the expectation that by the early part of next year you will see an Article 50 letter. We will invoke that. In that letter I am sure we will be setting out some parameters for how we propose to take this forward.I don't think we will actually necessarily need to spend a full two years but let's see how we go.

I can see Boris getting very tired of the work involved in Brexit. Nothing but EU this and EU that for him.

It can't come soon enough. Europe is so over the UK at this stage. FFS just leave. You made your choice.

If the courts don't force a parliamentary vote.

Enough to wreck a chap's head.....

It's a big comedown from hanging over London on zip wire and being praised and applauded for being such a brilliant cove and all-round great sport...

All the talk that May would "not be rushed" into triggering article 50 was just a negotiation tactic (and a bad one at that). The EU has not fallen for it, nor have they moved from their position of encouraging Britain to trigger A50 as soon as possible. At this point, the EU knows that May does not have the sufficient power or avenue to undo the EU exit poll, and that that they have nothing more to offer to keep Britain in and, and perhaps most importantly, Britain continuing to be half in and half out will only lead to more instability in the EU. I think they should go, as their people voted to do, and prevent any risk to the wider Union.

Well Britain has never been a mastermind when it comes to diplomacy and her constant mudslinging against the EU and its core values will not help when negotiations are begun. In reality, the EU does not have to accept any conditions and, once Article 50 is triggered, Britain will have to go. All the EU has to do is play a lot of stalling tactics while giving in to a handful of pointless concessions to keep them silent.


Two things are certainly OUT!

-1 Membership of the common market without free movement
-2 Wide access to free movement while Britain does not reciprocate

The Brexit result sent tremors through political Europe and financial Europe.

The process of exiting is only going to increase the level of turbulence now that a time has been fixed for the departure process.

While that is true, a slow and indecisive brexit will only lead to further trouble. The EU must be strong in these negotiations and show its member nations that it has some fight in it.
