The 'Nasty Party' has departed after sorting out Gordons socialist mess. The UK needs to come together to eliminate poverty, raise up those struggling and move forward.
Look. In a couple of weeks you're going to get tired of all this triumphalism and realise what you've done. Brexit has accelerated the break up of the UK by about 2 years. If freedom of movement isn't accepted wholesale by what's left of the UK, then market forces will see what's left of London finance and dealing 'volte face' across the channel to Paris, Madrid, Prague, wherever. As long as they can trade freely. Which will be impossible here.
So what does the rUK live on after that? No oil, no gas, no manufacturing that doesn't rely on highly tariffed imports, and no financial industry... Southern Ireland, at best
My wife's Scottish. I'll be over the border before they pull up the drawbridge.
If the past three weeks have taught the Brexiters anything it should be this:
Imagine the most bizarre scenario you can, imagine it might happen, because it will. Boris Johnson, Foreign Minister...
Anything can happen now, everything is up for grabs, and all the certainties you hold so dear are going to be assaulted in ways you never thought possible.
