    You’re talking to yourself.

      Actually this thread doesn't seem too bad. A distinct lack of name calling and belittling.

      Sure, but I wasn't saying it won't descend into the usual binfest, but Stat was saying it already has.

      What surprises me is that people are surprised at this mess. I have said a few times that I was leaning towards remain but willing to be convinced before the referendum. It was clear that it would never be an amicable split but wanted to see what the perceived benefits would be to weigh against the losses. All I got was lies and rhetoric from both sides and so stuck with my instinct that the benefits of remaining outweighed leaving. Did people really think that we could do the equivalent of a cheating husband who demands a divorce and wants to keep the pets, kids, car and house and still get sex from his ex whenever he wants? As well as alimony?

      A second referendum is highly unlikely and not sure what a GE would do to make matters better. But I do subscribe to the view that the 52-48 has long since gone after this debacle. Anyone convincing themselves that some leavers haven't change their mind are deluded. I live with one for starters. Like many, she had concerns about immigration but not "at all costs" like a few on here. We are now stuck with a government pulling itself apart, an opposition trying to make itself sound popular without actually saying or committing to anything. And I'm not sure where the Lib Dems are other than having a party conference at the local pub's back room. And all of them trying to put their own spin on what the 52% of people who answered a very basic question actually meant.
      Another contender for pinning to the top of the thread.

      This sums it up neatly. I voted to leave but I had what I thought were realistic expectations: the 'have our cake and eat it' policy was obviously completely bonkers but it's what's driven our whole approach to the negotiations. If we'd said,"we want to leave the SM/CU but will keep free movement" we may have got somewhere (I'm just using those examples as shorthand, I'm fully aware that it's more complex than that) but we made no attempt to negotiate.

      And the Irish issue was clearly a major problem and there seems to have been no attempt to really tackle it. The obvious solution to me was to keep NI in the customs union and have the border in the Irish Sea but May thought sucking up the DUP was more important than trying to solve a thorny Brexit issue.

      Whatever it is, it would have to be made into law, and then all other 27 EU country's would have to accept it
