    But you want more than WTO rules.

    Common market =/= WTO


    Liabilities and commitments to the EU the UK has made in the past.
    You signed it, you'll pay it.


    "What have the Romans ever done for us?"

    Have fun with the Americans once you left.


    Yeah the entire EU flew to the UK for medical treatment.

    Its real in my mind.

    This should be a good enough reason for leaving the EU and protecting our borders.

    As expected Corbyn has orders his mps to vote tonights bill down and contrary to labours manifesto.

    Fortunately there are some honest labour mps who are set to defy him,at least people can see what the labour party stands for,it's certainly not for the people.

    I've spent some time in Great Britain and continental Europe, just flew back from a trip yesterday actually, likewise I love both, people and all.

    But my impression is that there is still a distinct difference in culture between 'Europe' the mainland continent and ol' Blighty, without which, ol' Boney would have had us all eating snails and speaking some incomprehensible gibberish on both sides of the Atlantic by now :)

    Considering we've always been able to determine who settles in the UK but successive governments have chronically underfunded the Borders Agency, and considering leaving the EU won't in and of itself stop immigration to the UK from outside the EU which is where all these millions of rapists, terrorists etc are coming from, according to Condell, what's the point of Brexit again?

    As they say, a change is as good as a rest.

    We are more than overdue a change when comes to the EU.

    After Brexit, we will all be able to sing, Frank Sinatra’s famous song.

    If we balls up immigration then it will be our own fault.

    Have you forgotten what Merkel did?

    'Get lost!': Germany's 'enraged' hope to shout down Merkel

    Pat knows what he is talking about.

    "Island" as in just Britain? As in minus Northern Ireland?

    I'm getting stuff in my Facebook feed about Northern Ireland - as well as its industries that depend on an easy flow of goods across the border to feed their plants - experiencing a new push to leave the UK and join the Republic of Ireland.

    In your view (or that of anyone else here) how serious is that possibility?

    I would personally like that border open,as for northern Ireland that's a tough one,religious motivated politics and sectarian violence have dogged almost any peace deal or joining southern Ireland.

    You would? Didn't you vote against it?


    Well, maybe the economic gun the UK has put to Northern Ireland's head will be enough to outweigh the objections of the Orange Order and actually make unification happen this time.

    I'm fully aware. My point is that if the choice is antagonizing religious extremists and having huge numbers of people out of work, they might choose to poke the bear and keep their jobs.
