You are all most welcome wine

OMFG, I can't believe you're actually deluded enough to think we can all 'agree to disagree' on this.

Unless you're planning on upping your game and actually entering into discussions it's going to be very quiet.

Even then this is going to end very badly.

What would you like to drink? smile

Bearbehind Sun 30-Oct-16 17:19:58

Whatever you're drinking because it's clearly good shit! grin

surferjet Sun 30-Oct-16 17:34:47

Hey Rufus, get comfy, WW & the others should hopefully turn up soon.

time4chocolate Sun 30-Oct-16 17:37:26

I've arrived, it's cold outside so make mine a large one and have one for yourself surfer grinwine

RufusTheSpartacusReindeer Sun 30-Oct-16 17:38:47


I like this idea of yours surfer

Hey there time

Boffered1 Sun 30-Oct-16 17:43:27

Large gin, a packet of dry roasted peanuts and a seat by the fire for me please.

noeuf Sun 30-Oct-16 17:45:49

Budge up, I'll stay til it all kicks off.

So, I voted out but I'm slightly horrified by May and her apparent closed door stance

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 30-Oct-16 17:47:53

much admiration OP wine wine . Cheers.

time4chocolate Sun 30-Oct-16 17:48:35

Hey Rufus - chin chin wine

Steady on Bofferedsmile!!

noeuf Sun 30-Oct-16 17:48:36

I'll have a bitter shandy please

surferjet Sun 30-Oct-16 17:51:18

Welcome welcome

Ok, there are no rules as such here, but I thought it nice if we just chilled out a bit and got to know each other a bit better. It's always the same people on these threads so let's try & get on with each other, ( I'm actually very lovely grin )
We can still have our heated debates, but without the silly digs, it's worth a try at least? & if it doesn't work at least we got pissed trying grin

It's refreshing to see a leave voter admit that it's not all unicorns after all.
Maybe after you've all had a few shandies, one of you will actually admit the tanking pound has a downside too.

Get your digs in early, surfer.

But seriously, if there was a pub called The Brexit Arms, I would avoid it like the plague. Round my way it would be full of retired golf club types in blazers, who live in bungalows with rows of begonias bordering their manicured lawns and turn up at the polling station in their big purple and yellow rosettes.

Don't mention that to the landlady noeuf, you'll be barred because that was the sole reason for her vote

noeuf Sun 30-Oct-16 18:18:40

Of course it's not all unicorns , it's really irritating to be talked to as if I'm some simpleton. For me, staying in Europe was a worse long term prospect than leaving. Neither was rosy. I'm happy to stay and chat but if the bloody 'you're all racist thickos' comments start up I'm off.

WinchesterWoman Sun 30-Oct-16 18:24:28

Hi surf: good showsmile marking my place with hope and confidence for the future! Cheers

WinchesterWoman Sun 30-Oct-16 18:26:30

Noeuf don't go! We could get it all out of the way at the start
Poor (apparently poor people can't think straight)

Did I miss any

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 30-Oct-16 18:27:34

What's wrong with bungalows twofingers?

WinchesterWoman Sun 30-Oct-16 18:29:05

So my question is, how many people are confident the EU will negotiAte normally and without a Luxembourg size chip on the shoulder?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 30-Oct-16 18:29:38

noeuf of course it's going to be "you're all racist thickos" !! What else from the MN 'debate'?

WinchesterWoman Sun 30-Oct-16 18:31:39

Ok I withdraw all my comments because they are in the wrong tone and I think the brexit arms if it has nothing else has Tone. So I'm sorry to any remainers I offended any remainers there. Cheers to you all too.

noeuf Sun 30-Oct-16 18:31:42

Oh well. I thought maybe it would be a different approach.

I have a demanding, intellectually rigorous job, a load of kids and a busy life. I come here for light relief and advice. So if this thread is going to be petty insults, I cba.
