    What now, Boris?

    So Boris Johnson is now calling on the government (mainly remainers) to explain to the nervous masses how leaving the EU is actually a blooming good idea. What's that all about then?

      The Government won't do that because they thought it was a bad idea in the first place and even though they lost they will continue to scare and bring out probably unnecessary measures in a we told you so way.
      I did not want us to leave but we have and the wrangling will go on, May will probably be PM and what will happen is it will be an extremely watered down Brexit which will really upset the Tory leavers and so it will go on and on like children rather than getting on and running the country.
      I wonder how much bad news has been swept under the carpet over the past few weeks, before the referendum it was bad news after bad news due to cuts and now you hear nothing.
      Sad state of affairs really.

      Theresa May "refusing to rule out" forcible repatriation of EU citizens currently in the UK.
      That'll go down well with the millions of Brits domiciled in the EU with the potential of tit for tat expulsions.
      We really have become a very nasty and somewhat grubby little nation.

      Yes, expect to see plenty of British OAP's Luzzing plastic chairs at the police on the Spanish Costas as they are rounded up and tear gassed before being deported back to Blighty.

      What else can she say given that the terms of the exit have yet to be started let alone concluded. It will be down to the EU and UK to resolve but if free movement of people is out, then the issue of visas, length of stay, criteria for emigrating all have to be resolved, and one option may be some form of repatriation.

      But isn't this what leavers voted for, and given the press reports they want immigrants to leave now.

      To do so now would declare open season on immigration discussions and I don't think Teresa May wants to go there right now. I am not sure of the efficacy of the information, but 2 million Brits living in the EU has been bandied around. Bringing this lot home after a fire sale of their properties, should help cut the NHS queues and calm everyone down. It would also generate a pretty sizeable protest vote alongside a huge sympathy vote from nieces, nephews, grandchildren and ex-neighbours. Still it will turn out all right in the end.

      This is probably in response to Leadsom's stronger tack, but another politician giving large then withdrawing when in office.

      1 in 3 of the Leave voters had immigration as the main reason they voted Leave (according to polls after the event). So about 5.6 million voters. A sizeable chunk certainly.

      i saw a report from Ebbw Vale this morning on CNN. They asked a woman why she voted leave, considering the amount of money that the EU had given the area. She replied... Immigration..probably.

      Odious individual. Hardly a statesman. Hardly a leader of men. Hopefully he'll be consigned to the back benches, or land a job as a compare at The London palladium.
