    Brexit Means: Leaving Single Market, Customs Union European Court of Justice

    And it's not as if HMRC has a good track record on project management when it isn't being asked to do the impossible.

      There's a line in there about 30mile tailbacks out of Dover that caught the eye.

            Poorest Leave voters- from the most optimistic group to the least optimistic group in 8 months.

              Of course, lots of this group don't vote Labour, but isn't there a progressive argument for being much more hard hitting on Brexit right there?

              Brexit cuts, Brexit tax rises etc.

                Well done Wales! Who could have seen this coming?

                Maybe the 139 redundant people can work in reopened steelworks now the EU is off our backs.

                http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/education/university-announces-139-job-losses-12820580

                Universities Wales, which represents the sector, said universities face a number of challenges such as Brexit and competition for students.

                Announcing its job cuts, USW said it hoped most of the jobs would go through voluntary redundancy as it began a 45-day consultation with staff and unions.

                More than half of USW’s spend goes on pay and pensions and it is facing a 3% rise in costs.

                It said external influences, including the effect of Brexit on applications from EU students, are a long-term and not one-year phenomenon.
                Jobs going in Cardiff, Newport and Treforest.

                  Oh, fuck off BBC news. An entirely reasonable reminder by Tusk that this will be difficult is 'talking tough'. The more they accept the Brexit loons' framing that any outcome other than their wildest dreams is the result of a vindictive foreign conspiracy, the less likely it becomes that the lying bastards will ever be held to account for what they have done.

                    Wow, the swing for the North East is even more tremendous (+7.5 to -39.3 in that period.)

                      Why are the east midlands more optimistic?

                        Yeah, but think of the sovereignty.

                        Honestly, you moaning Minnies. If you keep talking Britain down then nothing good will happen.

                        Be positive and we won't be eating soil this time next year.

                            I see the stupid old farts are bringing their great powers of perspicuity to bear once more. Useless boomer wankers.

                              Just out of interest, does Spain's fixation on the sovereignty of enclaves extend to places like Cueta and Melilla, or does it only count if they are on their own border?

                                Money talks so I think Brexit loons will cop a backlash.

                                Then again I thought the Tories would get blamed for the early 90s blizzard of house repossessions. But apparently Jim Callaghan and Jack Jones caused it.

                                    Tubbs, in order for your scenario to play out, someone is going to have to take on Dacre, Murdoch and the Barclays, and I haven't seen any indication that this government has the stomach for that.

                                    Money may talk, but it also can move very quickly.

                                      I can't believe the EU is doing exactly what it said it would do. In detail. With accuracy. It's almost like they thought about it. Planned for shit. I'm glad we're leaving that behind.To the void!

                                        Now the revanchists are looking forward to going to war over Gibraltar. They're also bothered about the colour of passports.

                                          There's a lot of bellicose little Palmerstons out there alright. It'd be hilarious if I didn't think there was an outside chance this Govt would threaten a war with another NATO member over an online gambling bolthole.

                                              It all went too far when Inch High private Eye became 25.4mm High Private Eye and Harold Pinter was forced to call himself Harold Pointfivesixeightlitres.

                                                  I'm sure the younger generations will be delighted to start learning more non-decimal everyday calculations for the convenience of the elderly who have so royally fucked up their futures with the Brexit vote.

                                                  As for Gibraltar, it's just beyond a joke. The British government might as well just start strutting around shouting "Do you know who we are?" and ordering the colonies to be on stand by.
