What is their actual size?

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

From another thread but also appropriate here: I can't understand why people are not far more concerned with the really important issues around passports.

Up a smelly brown creek without a paddle.
As for May she won't be long in the job and a GE isn't far off IMHO.

I hope the scruffy yobs are back tomorrow!...
