I believe that most people have now understood (or at least those who do wish to understand) that the promises of easy trade deals (Liam fox) of massive financial benefits (Gove, Johnson) of major gains in sovereignty (farage, baker, raab, davis), reductions in immigration(Farage et al) have all proven to be illusory. People are now understanding that whilst we were experiencing some 63%( I believe that figure is correct) of inward investment into the EU being invested in the UK, this will now dwindle to massively less, plus the 15% loss of sterling's value .All the other losses to health, social, security, police, food safety, trade benefits are now at last coming to dawn on people that we will be worse off.

As Mark Twain said "it is far easier to deceive people, than to get people to accept that they have been deceived"

Mrs Strong and Stable blames everybody but her incompetence .

and then just to show his leadership credentials in the middle of a national crisis, the clown Corbyn walks out of a cross party discussion because he doesn't think one person should be there.

and Mrs May knows what the people want!!!

I'm happy that someone has put in so much effort to give the majority of the populace what they voted for, imagine if Herr Corbyn had been in charge, he'd have blamed the army or the Jews, we have been lucky to have had a conscientious leaders who has tried, sadly she has failed thus far

the problem is, that people voted to leave the EU. in that regard I do not argue too much (although the leave campaign broke the law, and also there was much open and deliberate deception. neither of these points are in dispute).



they did not vote to leave the other things , such as Customs Union and Single Market (as neither were on the ballot paper)

anybody who says they knew exactly what they were voting for, will surely be able to remind us how they knew about the problems relating to the Belfast Agreement

However to call it the "Will of the People" when only 37% of the electorate voted to make the most radical change to our constitution in almost 50 years, is clearly an overstatement of the case . So too is it, to refer to non-brexiteers as "traitors" or "enemies of the people"


yes she has tried hard, (clearly to her credit) but she is so limited in her thinking that she has hidebound her own negotiating position by laying down red lines which should have been kept in reserve.

that she now blames everybody but herself , shows she is deluded

to drive us over the cliff would be the worst act of national vandalism since Eden in 1956

I forgot that 63% of the population didn’t realise they were entitled to vote. How remiss of me

whilst brexit won the vote , it is not "the will of the people"

but such emotive phrases were used throughout the campaign, with very few people fully understanding the implications of Brexit

Not to mention the millions paid by British employers to their EU staff which finds its way back to their homeland economies at the expense of ours.

I notice that the p[etition was signed by over2million people who don't understand what Article 50 is, or don't like the idea of democracy any more, what is the point of democracy if you don't accept the vote when it is delivered
