    UK: We want a rebate on the fees
    EU: OK
    UK: We don't want to be in the Euro
    EU: OK
    UK: We don't want to be in Shengen
    EU: OK
    UK: We want a restriction on benefits until people have worked here for some time
    EU: OK
    UK: We want to stop child benefit being paid for children who aren't in the UK
    EU: OK
    UK: We want to kick out people who come here but don't work and can't afford to support themselves.
    EU: That's fine, you already can.
    UK: We want loads of preferential treatment that other countries don't get
    EU: Errr, can't really give that without everyone agreeing
    UK: Don't give us what we want and we'll leave
    EU: That's a bit of an over reaction, but your choice
    UK: OK we're leaving
    EU: Bye then
    UK: Now we're leaving, we want all the things we had before
    EU: Errr, no, it doesn't work like that
    UK: Don't give us what we want and we'll leave with nothing,
    EU: (Scratches head) OK, umm, well, yeah
    UK: We're serious, we'll walk away with nothing to teach you a lesson
    EU: Bye (again)
    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?

    Indeed. What difference does it may if it's triggered now or 11 days time? Everyone knows she agreed with herself to trigger A50 by the end of the month. So why delay until the end of the month? The bluff has been called, the stage set, the orchestra engaged and she's quaking it behind the curtains.

    Sell any sterling while you can.
    London : 'we're holding a referendum to leave the Eureopean union
    EU: 'OK'
    Scotland: 'we're holding a referendum to leave the UK union'
    London: ' Oh no you're not'.

    just as clever as saying its about time you bought a round to the third highest contributor to your 27 person rounds.
