....which is 8 times what we pay to the EU!
The Times has seen a govt document detailing this.
Funny, isn't it?
Prior to the referendum we wanted our "sovereignty" back?
Now the PM and govt are going to ignore parliament completely!
Why is it so easy for brexit Evers and the PM to ignore the 48% of us who DO NOT want this?
Why are we suddenly cast as "liberal sneerers"?
You know what?
I'm quite happy with that description as it means I did nit support trump supporter and rape apologist farage et al.
I am horrified by what is happening in my country.
Twitter showing page from the DM comments page - I refuse to link to the DM - I'm sure you can find it easily enough - the comments about the migrant who was killed on the roads in France are horrific 😳😞😡
What had become of us? Or were my countrymen and women always like this? I guess they now feel their racism and misogyny have a political mandate now 😞

It's just a complete mess. Brexiters still all have their heads in the sand. Although, I'm sure the daily mail comments section has always been utterly vile.

"Why are we suddenly cast as "liberal sneerers"?"

Because it seems that all threads here have to include sniping and personal attacks.

It was unedifying in the campaign and strikes an even worse note now.

It's the PM who is calling us that!

Yes you are probably right re the DM comments section....but I'm sure it's much much worse since the ref.
Ugh.

trojan in my case as a EU National I am cast as a "citizen of nowhere" and a bargaining chip to be put on a list. I think the only people who out of touch with reality are head-in-the-sand Leavers - and not all leavers are as we saw in the Commons yesterday.

Will this happen before or after world war three??

It's a complete and utter shit show isn't it.

The govt thing about employers having to compile lists of foreign workers last week!? Where the fuck are we heading? It is truly frightening, worrying and not the sort of country I want to live in.

I just wish Corbyn would fuck off and I would vote Labour for the first time in my life. If he doesn't go the Cons will be in for another two elections.

May's speech at the Tory conference consolidated her Daily Mail/Express/Telegraph support. Under FPTP this would be enough to win a GE. I don't see Daily Mail reading leave voters having a change of heart.

Ed Miliband went on the offensive against David Davis in the HoC yesterday and the former Labour leader has been shot down in the right wing press.

A new Labour leader is not going to ride in on a white horse and liberate us from Brexit hell.

Is this a sneer? Or maybe a snipe?

Well, followers of Putin and Trump also sneer at the warnings. Last night PJ O'Rourke placed this country alongside Russia and America as an example of the worrying populism that seems to be dominating world politics: Trump, Brexit, Putin. I am sure they have no worries either, nor would call themselves racists or xenophobes, but that is exactly what they are.

are you proud, Wendy?
