      You mean just like some of us have done and are doing?

      It’s not the EU holding you back, it’s you.

        I worked in a few European countries and not speaking the local language was never an issue... I guess you are the brainwashed one...

          10 years of the backstop should make any surviving gammons see sense.

            You are so grossly out of touch with reality. You could easily class me as a selfish old fart but I am a remainer as are my friends who are also the selfish old farts and remainers (one who also died last year, he was ex-army and a strong remainer).

            I have worked in 14 EU countries all of which had either English as the working language or at least English as a second language. Even if a business is not international, they often choose to work in English to avoid local conflicts in multi-language countries. Eg, Belgium and Switzerland. Many other small businesses are quite happy to communicate English to their workers. The only country that excluded me from contracting with them due to not knowing the local language is Wales. A welsh council stipulated that the IT staff must be welsh speakers.

              Another country that excludes anyone that won't speak local language is all the UK

                  What’s established is that large Constitutional changes require more than simple majority, 2/3 is sensible norm

                      The only way to kill off Brexit once and for all is to let them have their hard crash out Brexit. Once the idiots who voted for it realise that we were better off inside the EU, we can beg to go back in (on equal terms with everyone else) and start to get on with our lives again. Canceling Brexit now will just give the likes of Farage a platform to spout their lies from forever more.
