And now the new multi-annual Euro crisis begins...Everyone will have a bad time, but the Brexicants will suffer most of all. We should prepare refugee camps on the Irish sea coast and double up on naval and coast guard units to fish the Brexicants out of the sea. If tacky right wing populism rises, be ready for FF to suggest building a wall from Derry to Wexford :lol:

FG and Labour naturally will say that the wall doesn't go far or high enough and that FF's wall is too little.

Article 50: Theresa May to trigger Brexit process next Wednesday - BBC News

Is there no turning back now? Do the Brexiteers have any real plan for what they want to do next?

I interviewed Peter Lilley to ask what their plans were... judge for yourself.

Here's How 53 - Conservative Peter Lilley MP on Brexit
Well, I for one am glad to see this particular train leave the station. Only another two years of listening to the that God-awful word being bandied about on TV and radio and plastered across newspaper headines. Brexit is, and has been, as big a con job as I've seen perpetrated on a population for many years, the only exception being Trump for President.

Those who voted to leave the EU have been sold a mirage in the desert. The overwhelming majority of immigrants in the UK are from former British colonies, are largely Muslim and will still be there after the country leaves the EU. Despite all the griping about refugees from sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East it's the ghettoisation of Britain's towns and cities by Asian Muslims that causes the most angst. Most of the more recent immigration from Eastern Europe comprises white Christians whose sense of identity is specifically European and closer to native Britons' values than those of the country's former colonies.

The penny has yet to drop with many Britons that exiting the world's most prosperous trading bloc might not be so smart. Too many still have a colonial mentality and see Britain as a world power on a par with the US and China. They constantly remind us that they have the wirld's fifth largest economy, neglecting to mention that it's no. 5 as an EU member, not as an outsider. That ranking is sure to move south post-Brexit and wistful notions of establishing a Singapore-like, low-tax, low-regulation island state are testament to how poorly thought-out going it alone has been. They're currently checking to see if they have a parachute on their backs having leapt from the plane.

Some of their criticism of EU institutions s justified, but then you see their Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, holding down five jobs (including editorship of the Evening Standard and as a consultant to the Blackstone Group) and you have to laugh at the irony.

Farage will have long since crawled back under the rock he came from when the reality starts to bite.

It's the end of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (and as the europhiles think the solution is more Europe, it will probably result in the break up of the EU as we know it).

I don't think the setting of a date is worthy of a thread. Shouldn't all this discussion just be in an exiting Brexit thread?

Michael Heseltine was just on the radio there. He said the process looks like it will begin but at the end of it, if they ever get there, there will/should be another referendum needed to ratify it.

The Brits will get a shíte deal. May is a clown. If it goes to another Referendum the whole thing will be thrown out. Just a waste of everyone's time.

I'm greatly afeared the Prime Minister is being rushed into announcing an Article 50 date without fully weighing up the pros and cons of this momentous decision. The consequences of such rash actions can never be underestimated.

No indication has been given as to whether vital issues concerning the preparation and delivery of this letter have been fully teased out. For example:

- Has the Downing Street fountain pen been recently serviced? It would cause great uncertainty in the markets were the letter to be abandoned in mid-withdrawal because of a blockage in the ink-delivery system.

- Is there an adequate supply of superior quality notepaper available that has been embossed with appropriate crests and logos proclaiming Britain's paramount position in world affairs? Writing the letter on socially inferior notepaper might give this excitable Johnny Tusk chap a mistaken impression that he can negotiate the terms Britain is dictating to him.

- Have the terms this Tusk cove should use in addressing his reply been fully thought out? There is a world of difference between "Yours humbly" and "I most humbly beg to remain forever your most obedient servant".

- Has a protocol been arrived at regarding how Her Most Gracious Majesty might be given sight of this letter? It certainly would not do to have it displayed in some foreign newspaper that isn't even written in English before Her Most Gracious Imperial British Majesty has seen it.

- Have the awards to be bestowed on those involved in the creation of this letter been agreed with due consideration been given to the seniority of such awards conforming to the ranking of the function performed and the social class of the awardees? Fallout from awarding a potential Companionship of the Royal Order of the Bidet to grammar school educated Higher Executive Officer who prepared the ink in precedence over an OBE to a Principal Officer Grade 2 with a Cambridge Third in Classics who selected the writing paper could take years to unravel.

- Has it been definitively decided not to affix a stamp to the envelope containing the letter? If this Johnny Tusk fellow is seeking this letter, then he should jolly well pay for it instead of loading another unnecessary expenditure on Britain's Exchequer.

The above are but a sample of the considerations which have yet to be decided to the satisfaction of the British people who told Johnny Tusk and his swarthy cabal they've had enough of his impertinent diktats. It would be in everybody's interests to hand the matter over to a Royal Tribunal of the House of Lords for their deliberation. Let Johnny Tusk wait for his letter until Britain is good and ready. He should be damned grateful that Britain has condescended to reply to him in the first place.

Saying he voted for Brexit to keep the muslims out ?

Bit of a head scratcher that - when was the last time you met a Polish Muslim
