    Shaunbuoy is very useful to us. He is so vacuous he makes the perfect Brexit poster boy. He embodies all of the failings of Brexiteers in one convenient package. He does exactly what he says on the tin. We're really quite fortunate he doesn't go off in a huff.

    The Euro is a bad idea, always said so. Having said which these states don't seem to be in a hurry to leave.
    We had our cake and ate it - Maggie created the single market and negotiated a good deal, now you've ruined that.
    In 10-20 years I suspect we'll have to go back into the EU - on their terms, which will probably involve adopting the Euro.

    Bless. Like so many Bremainers you crave certainty in every aspect of your life. Presumably that will then allow you to get back to spending most of your waking hours gawping unintelligibly at your phone screens and not feeling that you may have to spend any time adapting to a new, and exciting future for your country.

    That is NOT how the world works I am afraid.

    People who voted Brexit were clear that certainty was the very last thing that would emerge, leaving aside the certainty that in future we would NOT be reliant on the whims and wishes of others. That is what we voted for, a complete change of direction from the one we were unsatisfied with.

    Yet Remainers now constantly carp on about being provided with hard and fast facts of a type which were never very likely to have emerged prior to negotiations being completed. That is the bit they don't get.

    Expect the final blueprint to go right down to the wire, because this departure of ours is likely to have long-standing effects upon the EU style of leadership, and that is why the Junckers, Barniers and Tusks are doing their best to make it as difficult as possible. THEY will be the big losers in all this.
    Not the British people or the normal hard-working people of the remainder of the EU.

    Trade flourished long before the EU morphed into this unaccountable bureaucracy and it will flourish long after it. And the reason for that is because it is in nobody's best interest either side of the Channel for it not to.

    And please don't serve up any more tripe about Brexiters only voting in their own best interests, it is tired nonsense and no more true of the Brexit community than it is of the Remain community. Although I do like to think that if the Remain camp had won, most Leave voters would have accepted the public choice and just got on with it.

    Maybe that is because far more Brexiteers have a bit more respect for democracy and are not such a shower of spoilt needy self-indulgent losers.

    Now you will just need to have a bit of faith and patience. Treat yourself to a new comfort blanket if needs be but try and refrain from spending your entire life in a panic.

    All will be well in the end, and if it is not yet all well, then it is clearly not yet the end.

    HTH

    At last, you acknowledge you have no idea what you voted for but you hope, at some point in the future (but feck knows when), things might get better again. But in the meantime all those who will be worse off because of the vote can just cry into a blanket as you take no responsibility for their loses as a direct result of the brexit vote.

    Nice! I bet you're well liked and respected in the real world and have lots of friends if that's the way you treat people.

    Once again you completely miss the point.

    I wasn't discussing the "new, and exciting future for your country". I wasn't discussing certainity. You've lost all those arguments by supplying absolutely zero evidence for your pipedreams.

    The point I was making is your position is vastly different to that held by rational people and we don't see it as some sort of throwaway topic for banter down the pub. We don't see any commonality with what pain you are bringing on our country and any normal person's recipes for national improvement. What you and other Brexiteers did was attack the future wellbeing of all our citizens, and you did it by voting when you quite clearly had inadequate knowledge and intellectual capacity.

    You are clearly guilty of that charge. You have more-or-less confessed. However we cannot take this lightly for the simple reason you have singularly failed to show the slightest hint of remorse.

    And in another 20 odd years time, the question will once again be asked, similar to:

    Why did Britain decide to join the European Union?

    The United Kingdom made its first application to join in 1961. It was quickly apparent that there was a danger of political isolation within Western Europe, Commonwealth states were rushing to do deals with the new bloc, and it had American support.
