We all knew that it was a mistake. But Brexiteers will always try to spin these events as somehow being a "success" and if it evidently isn't then it is the "EU's fault".

Brexiteers are incapable of taking responsibility for their decisions and they should feel ashamed of themselves.
Glad to see the snide high horse tendency of eu luvvies is still pouring forth from the backsides. So easy to see all that's good over that cesspit.

#Chopper.."The Dutch confiscate a sandwich yet allow prostitution & drugs"...Prostitution & drugs are included in UK GDP,not legal in the UK but enough money generated from both to be included as part of the UK's GDP.
Basically the UK ignores the illegality because it helps with the GDP figures,perhaps the Dutch recognise that prostitution & drugs are a reality.

Nunan 15:59 - So many tragedies of Brexit. Our creative industries exported more in a month in terms of revenue to the exchequer than fish does in a year. We have lost thousands of City of London jobs & Trillions in assets. The ERG government don't mind because they have their tax havens. Why can't Brexiteers take responsibility for what they voted for?
Tragedy's the word, unjust, undemocratic. Our country has been hijacked for no gain at all. We got Johnson ffs, unbelievable, and all because of a protest vote and no chance of the very necessary and very democratic EU Ref2. The battles are only just beginning, 'Brexit' is not going to get away with it. Removed

“corruption in the EU ‘BREATHTAKING’”

The most embarrassing aspect of this desperate attempt to discredit the EU, apart from the article being seven years old, is that the corruption applies to national governments, including that of the UK and not the EU itself. Furthermore, UK citizens felt more affected by corruption than those of France or Germany.

TBF, some Remainers DID challenge the Ref for a number of reasons inc Russian interference (funny how this Government refused point blank to look into that) & the funding of Leave.EU & Vote.Leave. But whether those would have been enough to reverse the result is questionable. Seems more valid to ask whether what we ended up with bears any relationship to what was promised in 2016. It doesn't.
