    The current leaders of our country disagree with you.

    But they are wrong!

    If you are in the market to buy a car and you decide, I want a blue one with 4 wheels and the garage says, "Sorry, not got one of those but I can sell you a red one with 3 wheels" - what will you do? You'll try the garage down the road selling cars with 4 wheels and in the colour you want.

    The UK now has its hands firmly on the steering wheel.

    The same principle applies the opposite way round.

    With the UK beginning trade negotiations with both the EU and the US this month, here is who Brits would prefer to have as the closer trading partner between the two:

    Tell me this is Fake News...

    Dept of Health wanted U.K. to pitch to remain part of EU pandemic ‘EWRS’ early warning system after #brexit - but Number Ten said “no” to preserve ‘red lines’.

    Our education system has a lot to answer for.

    At last I agree with you. The IQ of Brexiteers leaves a lot to be desired.

    Brexiteers are the only ones that are resistant to indoctrination despite the best efforts of leftwing educationalists/propagandists.

    One of the drivers about Brexit was that it would cut 'red tape' and cut costs.
    Now we discover that there'll be that much red tape at Dover that we will need 50,000 new customs officers.- now let's say they earm £30k a year; if my maths is correct that's £1.5bn a year.

    I don't remember that bus in June 2016

    EU migrants have more confidence in the UK than the Remainers have.



    EU migrants prefer the UK to the EU.

    How many of those that prefer the EU to their own country have left the UK?

    The fact that we want to remain in the EU doesn't mean we don't like the UK; I don't like the politics of the UK, but neither do I like Italy's or Poland's.
    You play the 'patriotic' card too often and it is not right to do so; Patriots do not make their country worse, Brexit is doing just that.

    I hope the truth is not making you feel too uncomfortable.

    If I posted a video, you would not watch it, but here is one anyway.



    Go on, list the tangible benefits of rejoining...

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.

    They will have to be outstanding to convince the UK population to vote for rejoining.

    1. Free medical care in EU
    2. Firms will stop leaving the UK
    3. My passport will give me free unfettered travel across the EU
    4. Trade deals done, tariff free
    5. Grants to poorest parts of UK

    They will have to be outstanding to convince the UK population to vote for rejoining.

    I await your response - as usual a REmainer answers the question; but Leavers change the system and duck the question.

    Can I remind you of the Brexit promises...

    Are all Leavers the same; you find great difficulty answering questions?

    The country answered the question in June 2016.
