Another day another comment on Brexit opened up for comment.

Has anyone's views changed from yesterday? I very much doubt it.

If only the BBC could monetise this click-bait they wouldn't need to punish the over 75s.

There is hope. But with the Clown Prince as pilot hope is about all we have remaining.

Grow up...no sensible people in this country want a catastrophic no deal Brexit. A very large number of us did not vote to leave and a significant number who did so, did because they were lied to and cynically manipulated by Bunter and his gang of lying anti European zealots.

I am already stockpiled with imported goods such as tea and loo rolls, in readiness for NY supply chain disruption.

I hope leavers run out of loo roll. How funny would that be ?

A blue passport that ensures t hat we stand in a longer que whilst the rest of the world looks on with dismay and tuts
so all the answers here are stupid as predicted. lose rights to live in 27 other countries in exchange for a blue passport and "sovereignty" whatever that means in real terms... freedom is being able to live and work where you want. Brexit doesn't give us as individuals any freedoms-- it just takes freedoms away. idiots Removed

And that, my friend, is the sneering, unfounded superiority of the remainer classes that brought about defeat in the referendum. Ironic huh! if only you had listened to the concerns of the majority over the last 20 years we'd still be in the EU.

So I guess its these that you so readily dismiss who will enjoy the last laugh.

Who Voted for Brexit? (European Journal of Political Economy
Volume 56, January 2019, Pages 132-150)

"We find that voting Leave is associated with older age, white ethnicity, low educational attainment, infrequent use of smartphones and the internet, receiving benefits, adverse health and low life satisfaction."

Or to put it more accurately, Terry, the delaying tactics and arrogance showed by the reman democracy denier camp in trying to derail the process has lead directly to some delays.

And still the remain camp are battling on and doing their best to destroy the country. Time to give it up Terry and to start working in the national interest. If you wouldn't mind.
I'm not sure if this is meant to be sarcastic or if you really are that stupid?

You do realise (and I assume you have an IQ more than a child of 3) that ALL these disatrous issues are as a result of leaving the EU through Brexit that YOU wanted?

If remainers had their way (which we didnt because 'YOU WON') then we would all be fine. BUT YOU wanted this - own the UK destruction you imbecile.

Therefore the remain camp should have accepted that and got behind it but, oh know, that did all they could to cause issues and delays. I hope that clears things up for you.

We’ve had over 4 and half years to sort out border problems, so there is no excuse that we’re not ready.

Instead worst-case scenario planning was largely avoided for fear of panic and backlashes, while when this was done we had Chris Grayling making a mess of ferry contracts.

“I want to make sure we’re going to fight like hell by investing in America first,” said Biden. “I’m not going to enter any new trade agreement with anybody until we have made major investments here at home and in our workers” and in education, he said

Nobody can disagree that Biden is in mental decline due to his age, quite apparent from his recent Presidential campaign. It would come as no surprise if he starts flip flopping over recent pledges.
