Bloody bastarding Brexit. Who thinks we were U and who thinks weren't being Y?

ComingUpTrumps Mon 16-Oct-17 00:27:12

*and who thinks we weren't being U?

I'm just so fucked off with all of the shit we've had to deal with following the Brexit vote.

ComingUpTrumps Mon 16-Oct-17 00:39:31

Bump. Anyone else think Brexit will be an utter fucking shitshow???

Idontevencareanymore Mon 16-Oct-17 00:41:12

Brexit scares me. We've voted for something we have next to no idea for our future. And seeming the person/s leading us don't either!

Looking forward to the billions Boris promised the NHS though...... (sarcasm)

I’m actually starting to think there’s a glimmer of hope and that it could hit the skids in quite a major way in the coming months.

There’s something about the Brexiteer members of the cabinet’s perma-grimaces and slightly glazed eyes that suggests they have the slightest inkling it might not be happening, too...

Yes without a doubt.

TheRealGussieFinkNottle Mon 16-Oct-17 00:43:49

I bloody hope we can stop Brexit in its tracks. It's just so so shit that none of the other countries in the EU are taking us seriously anymore. And that the people in government who are trying to drive Brexit through will all be absolutely fine and dandy if we end up with no deal. It's such a fuck up.

Oh totally. Problem is no-one can really define what they meant by Brexit when they wanted it, campaigned for it and voted for it.

17 million leavers. 17 million different versions of leave.

And the fact that people think no deal is better than a bad deal dont have a clue.

They are equating no deal with the status quo but out. Not realising a deal is needed for simple things really. Like keeping flights going or medical equipment stocked with isotopes or even stopping Kent become a permanent lorry park.

I was angry at the result. I am angrier at the cack handed attempts to implement the result.

TheRealGussieFinkNottle Mon 16-Oct-17 00:46:16

It's awful. I actually think they should've made David Cameron and finish what he started. Just to keep a sense of continuity, rather than bringing in TM as a new Prime Minister.

TheRealGussieFinkNottle Mon 16-Oct-17 00:47:57

It fucks me off that Brexit is giving the politicians and government less time and opportunity to focus on other really important issues. In the grand scheme of things, we would've been SO much better off staying in the EU angry now we might not even be able to work abroad. I mean wtf???

My argument against leaving was always ‘it’ll be a monumental waste of time and money’ - which it has been so far, and will continue to be.

I am hoping against hope that it doesn’t happen.

There needs to be decsiions made and for Brexit to be pushed through decisively. This " it's going to take two years" is unbelievable. The plaster needs ripping off rather than pulling each hair out slowly and individually.

TheRealGussieFinkNottle Mon 16-Oct-17 00:52:27

Hear hear Yoko

TheRealGussieFinkNottle Mon 16-Oct-17 00:53:28

I don't think it would be practical for Brexit to be done quickly though yorkshire. Even though I agree that doing it over two years (or more) is definitely not helping.

KC225 Mon 16-Oct-17 00:58:17

I think it's the most exciting thing to happen in politics for years.

YokoReturns Mon 16-Oct-17 01:02:03

yorkshire I keep hearing this from Leavers.

The EU is not a plaster and the UK is not some gaping wound so your metaphor doesn’t work.

If we’re talking ‘leaving’ metaphors, it’s more akin to untangling a skip-full of yarn, which has been home to successive generations of kittens over the past 45 years.

yorkshireyummymummy Mon 16-Oct-17 01:20:06

Sorry Yoko. Thanks for telling me my metaphor didn't work.

In that case then, the skip full of tangled yarn needs to have the kittens removed so more people can get in to untangle faster. I may not agree with the result of the vote but I agree with democracy and Brexit has to happen - and the politicians need to stop messing about arguing about it and just get it done.

YokoReturns Mon 16-Oct-17 01:26:34

Thing is yorkshire they’re trying to ‘get it done’ but it’s a total minefield (another metaphor, sorry grin) and can’t be done in a speedy manner.

I still don’t believe it will happen.

TheDowagerCuntess Mon 16-Oct-17 02:27:58

and the politicians need to stop messing about arguing about it and just get it done.

grin

Don't you think they would just get it done, if they had the first clue as to how to do it?

notangelinajolie Mon 16-Oct-17 02:35:22

Oh really? I'm looking forward to it. Sorry you have had to deal with some bad things though.

safariboot Mon 16-Oct-17 02:53:24

YABU posting another bloody Brexit thread grin.

But one thing. The UK probably cannot cancel Brexit by itself. The European Parliament's position is that revoking the Article 50 notification would need the unanimous agreement of all the other EU members.

TheRealGussieFinkNottle Mon 16-Oct-17 13:44:01

Oh really? I'm looking forward to it.

Why angelina? It looks like the process of leaving before we actually leave is going to be really drawn-out and painful.
