Wow what a week grin
I'm still walking on air & soooooo happy we're leaving, just want A50 triggered ASAP!

DeloresJaneUmbridge Fri 01-Jul-16 07:40:32

Article 50 will never be invoked.

Happy? Politics in absolute turmoil.

Nobody actually seems to have a clue what it all means, racist attacks on the increase, companies wobbling about jobs and investment, boris in/boris out, Corbin wobbling, bloody Farage strutting about like the winner in a belching competition...

What good has actually come out if this do far - and please, for the love of God, don't say 'we got out country back '.

I feel a weight is lifted, and I want the Tory leadership sorted out now. I want 50 triggered when we are ready and have a crack team to deal with it.

originalmavis Fri 01-Jul-16 07:48:16

To do what though? What are the numbers? What is the plan? There is nobody steering the ship.

BriteRainbowBright Fri 01-Jul-16 07:51:13

I'm very eager for Gove to take charge and lead the reforms eg invoke Article 50 etc

RosesareSublime Fri 01-Jul-16 07:52:39

someone did a great post somewhere Original, on all the momentous events in history.

what did you expect?

iisme Fri 01-Jul-16 07:55:21

have a crack team to deal with it.

Where the hell is this 'crack team' going to come from? We don't have the relevant experience in the UK - the EU holds all the cards legally and has all the skill and experience.

This is irony, right? No one feels anything but disgust for Michael Gove, surely?

TheNaze73 Fri 01-Jul-16 07:59:12

Delores so hope you're right but, on what basis don't you think article 50 will happen??

originalmavis Fri 01-Jul-16 08:00:05

A plan?

DeloresJaneUmbridge Fri 01-Jul-16 08:00:24

Dream on it aint ever hsppening. It's been a colossal waste of time and money.

All prospective leaders know this.

There are ample get out options and my only wonder is which one they will choose.

We are a laughing stock across the world.

Nigel Farage insulted the very people we have to negotiate with...many who've done more hours of "real work" than he has had hot dinners. Can't see that improving our chances of getting the deals we would like.

We lost more money this week than paying into the EU would cost for a number of years. Don't tell me it's nothing as before the referendum it was "a horrendous amount".

We now face spending cuts and tax rises. Spending cuts on the NHS, Education etc...whoops they appear to have lied about that £350m a week going to those public services.

Cuts in education won't affect those whose children do well but WILL affect those whose children have any type of SEN as they will suffer as a result.

But keep waving that flag OP and telling yourself how great it all is.

I think the leave vote was a selfish and misguided one. You have been gullible enough to accept the lies sold to you. We now ALL reap the effects of that...some of us more than others.

DeloresJaneUmbridge Fri 01-Jul-16 08:03:13

There are numerous ways the new Govt leader could avoid it. They haven't got unity for a start. Scotland and NI voted to stay in.
Triggering article 50 will begin the break up of the UK. That's one reason....go and have a look as there are plenty of others.

I know not a single person who is happy since Brexit - even those who voted to leave! From what I've seen if oust Brexit Britain it looks and feels totally alien with the bigots and racists taking the opportunity to have a go at immigrants across the country. The country's finances are testing on the edge of an abyss and jobs are already being list it put on hold, our country's credit ratio has plummeted, the opposition is in disarray, the government is in disarray, N Irish troubles may flare at the prospect of borders again and Scotland wants out of the U.K. So all you Brexiteers celebrating just have a look around and ask yourself if it was really worth it angry

Apologies for the shocking typos I blame the phone and my fat fingers confused

^Thirdly, push through a wave of deregulation. The Left will hate it, but Britain's economic future is now clear. We will be a free-wheeling offshore state that acts as a bridge between Europe and the rest of the world. Think Singapore, except bigger and with worse weather.

We should scrap EU-mandated labour market regulations and social protections as fast as possible. There is no reason why we should accept European limits on how many hours people do in the office - so long as we have a minimum wage in place, which we do, then it is up to every individual how long a shift he or she wants to put in. Issues such as parental leave can be freely agreed between companies and staff. Employers who want to hire lots of young women, the best educated, most skilled part of the workforce, will be generous; others less so. But business can decide for itself.^

Here you go - let's DO THIS THING! Yeah!

glitterbomb80 Fri 01-Jul-16 08:12:01

Elements - oh bloody bloody hell. A victory for the people.

This is what I suspected was driving the Leave campaign backers all along.

twofingerstoGideon Fri 01-Jul-16 08:15:31

OP: "How are we feeling?"

Goady as fuck it seems!

originalmavis Fri 01-Jul-16 08:16:25

Crack team? Like the ATeam or actually on crack (which is what I suspect the rest of the world this is we are smoking)?

FranHastings Fri 01-Jul-16 08:17:58

Here's how the parental leave thing will work without regulation, Theelementssong:

Boss: you're not having it. Take it and we will fire you.
< end scene >

Yes. Can't wait for all those pesky regulations to be eliminated. hmm

Also, we don't have anywhere near the number of expert trade negotiators we need. We just don't. Where are they coming from?

hmm You do realise that you are posting on a thread started by a happy Leaver?
I'm happy too. I know lots of happy Leavers.

dabofriojakitten Fri 01-Jul-16 08:20:14

Everything that elements outlined as "great news" sound terrifying.

twofingerstoGideon Fri 01-Jul-16 08:20:48

then it is up to every individual how long a shift he or she wants to put in.
...roughly translates as 'we will have more zero hours contracts and people will have to suck it up'
Yay! Go us!

purits Fri 01-Jul-16 08:21:37

Also, we don't have anywhere near the number of expert trade negotiators we need.

Because the EU has de-skilled us. Yay for the EU.

We just don't. Where are they coming from?

New Zealand and Australia, apparently. Nice to know we have some friends, as opposed to that lot over in EU-land who can't wait to shaft us.

Surferjet Fri 01-Jul-16 08:21:54

I can't see how this won't happen?
How can that be?
