    Going back to shillings sounds fun. Another chance to change all the coins.

    I think most people thought we had to use the mechanism that is A50. You are quite right. We have gone this route, I hope, in the spirit of making the best of a surprise result that not many politicians or "the establishment" thought would come to pass.

    It's always best to sit back and reflect rather than jumping in (or out in this case) with both feet. There were some very unhappy faces yesterday from what I saw on the "fake news". Or was it the real news? Hard to tell these days...

    Erm. Every time it came up? But originally, I have no idea. I may or may not have been interested enough in the EEC at the time.

    and to put that into context 36 years prior to 1979 was 1943 and all that that entailed.

    The point I guess is that was what correct 36 years ago may no longer be valid in todays world.
    Now I'm depressed. This year I will have been married to the same woman for 37 years....

    How much more useful it would have been to respond with a reasoned argument rather than a rather rubbish insult.
    Ah well. I suppose every forum has it's Sun readers.











    See what I did there?

    The EU, with very little to offer, may choose to resort to punishment instead. Beating with a stick rather than dangling the carrot. The EU shouldn't need to resort to that.
    Well, I seem to recall Cameron gave them the golden opportunity to do just that. Offer a sweetener. Instead they didn't take him seriously. Hence we are here, now.

    Experience would suggest otherwise.

    But on the plus side, she's still deliriously in love.
