Only 17.4 Million Voters Voted for Brexit. The most that have ever Voted for anything in Britain. After 3 and a half years later, the British people have not changed their mind.

Don’t worry guys. Get a hair cut, have a wash, win the Lotto and buy some new clothes then maybe just maybe ye can get a hooker ! !

Why? In a democratic society everyone has their say. And surely he is a contemptible racist who tears up agreements.
In fairness, Wayne didn't bring up immigration, not that he brought up much of anything.

That said, here's the thing regarding the racism and anti-immigration rhetoric within the Brexit movement regarding the 'browning' of the UK. Exactly how many EU nations are historically and predominantly brown, black and Oriental? Not from Judeo-Christian background? Now, how many from those other backgrounds were once part of the British Empire and, in the case of the Caribbean former colonies/present territories, even created through British slavery?

Wayne was about to bring up his kebab.

The British working class met the magnificent Poles.

Within minutes an idea formed in their heads.

That idea was 'They'll have to go'.

In Hitch hikers guide to the Galaxy theres an unconacted planet that has the same attitude to the universe, once they're made aware of it. I understand that this was the attitude of Japan as well, once 'contacted' in the 1600's.

I can really see the post-Brexit British working class working more for less in the kinds of jobs working class immigrants do. I can see it...like...over there...over the horizon somewhere.

Does this having a Slave Immigrant Class come as an Ideal from the Most Glorious Eu Empire ? ?

Probably dating back to Norman feudalism, to be honest. There is a reason why all sovereign debt and much of the world's corporate debt is written in 'English' law.

That is because in English or Norman law private property was given precedence over life and limb. In fact much of English law comes from one of the handful of versions of the Magna Carta.

One thing the UK has been most successful at is giving every Englishman and woman the impression that they are protected by Magna Carta. Only if their ancestor around at the time was a Baron.

And most people's ancestors weren't. Their ancestors were the property being discussed between the King and the Barons in much the same way as cattle would have featured.

Some say not much has really changed. It has been disguised a lot.

English/Norman law is always going to favour the robber-baron. It was written by robber-barons. FOR robber-barons. Mr Joe Blow from Acacia Gardens isn't a baron and neither was his ancestor.

So the Magna Carta only concerns him if his ancestor was the property of one of the barons. And most people were.

The land acts tore up the magna carta in this country and gave ownership of the land to ordinary Paddy/Joes.

Future not looking good for Brexit negotiations.

Headlines from the Daily Telegraph

'It's time to turn up the heat on the EU by accelerating our post-Brexit trade talks'

'Remainers dominated the language of Brexit, but now Boris Johnson is taking back control'

Never seen the Telegraph masturbate itself into such a frenzy since the Hitler Diaries.

Yes but the fapping noises when it turned out they were a hoax were all over at the Torygraph.

Dominated the language of Brexit?

Somebody should tell them what to expect from these trade negotiations in plain English.

It's the only language they understand.

Heading from the Daily Telegraph:

'As the panicked EU goes into Brexit meltdown, Britain finally has the upper hand'.

Brexit still to be dealt with after four years.

Interesting mood music from Kudlow.


The White House's economic adviser Larry Kudlow has said that because there is "some structure" to talks with the European Union, "reigniting that will be easier" than starting the whole process with the UK.

As a new team are in office at the European Commission officials have now agreed to reset relations between the US and EU, with both sides keen to avoid a transatlantic tariff battle.
Kudlow said both the UK and US are "in the preliminary stages of preliminary talks" for a trade deal.

He added: "We are all interested in doing something. But there's no structure to it yet".
The EU has no interest in a trade deal with Trump or even seriously discussing it. But they’re further ahead than Britain.

It’s a natural result of being in the EU for 4 decades, but between this, the bad Brexit deal and the inability to get deals done with existing EU partners: you can’t escape how bad the UK is at this.

"Most commentators assume the EU has the advantage because it is bigger. I disagree. The UK’s acceptance of trade friction has changed everything. "
That’s true to the extent he means it. Elements of Bojo’s cabinet (Bojo still isn’t). are accepting friction and the costs and losses that brings, essentially removing most of the promises of the campaign.

So that gives the the edge in the way that a 10 stone guy who’s not afraid to die has when negotiating on whether or not to fight with Dante Wilder. Eventually though the bell rings. And Dante might not want to hit you, but when he does, it’s going to hurt you a lot more.

Brexiteer fumes longer passport queues were 'not the Brexit' he voted for



The Leaver, who two weeks ago was asking "where are all the remoaning cyclists who were laughing at me a months ago?", managed to answer his own question with his latest Twitter posting.
In a tweet he wrote complaining about the "disgusting service" at an airport in Amsterdam.
Posting a photograph of an immigration queue, he complained he had been forced to wait 55 minutes at Schiphol airport.
Officials have warned previously that those travelling from the UK after Brexit could expect longer delays in Amsterdam.
It's impossible to overestimate the stupidity of many of the people who voted for this.

Get Brexit done, ho ho ho!
