    David Davis: Brexit 'as complicated as moon landing'

    "The minister in charge of the UK's exit from the EU says elements of his job make landing on the moon look simple.

    Brexit Secretary David Davis made the remark to business leaders as he discussed the interim arrangements that will be in place after the UK leaves.

    He suggested the UK would no longer be in the EU's customs union and single market during this period.

    And he said a "new international body" - not the European Court of Justice - would monitor new trade arrangements."

    So why wasn't it on the referendum choice list? Should have been really like:

    1) Stay in EU
    2) Crash and die horribly whilst attempting Moon landing complexity Brexit

    I wonder who that will be or if he is talking out of his arse? Actually it could be these guys: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intern...urt_of_Justice as it seems that the results they give out are non-binding apparently which would be nice for the Tories.

    Britain has in fact just lost a case there: https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-a-blow-for-uk



    (Might not be the ICJ as it tends to be based in Europe!)
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

      The process is turning out to be a lecture in understanding the actual benefits of EU membership rather than hyperbole offered by the Murdoch media.

        It's called democracy. Probably a site explaining it somewhere.

              Actually the Moon landing was not complicated at all, just physics and maths

              Brexit however is dealing with irrational idiots who think miracles will happen after Brexit

                The UK EU exit program reminds me more of the Soviet's moon landing effort than NASA's.

                  A wing and a prayer more like. Cameron played high stakes poker thinking he could emulate the big city boys and lost. The debt was bad enough without flushing the economy down the loo. Best we can now hope for is a good sewage treatment works.

                    So now we know it's going to cost hundreds of billions, take 10 years, and require the efforts of 400,000 people (and the lives of a few), the people should get to choose again.
