My grand plan was for the UK to stay in the EU and Corbyn to be PM. Then I'd have no choice but to flee the country permanently. For somewhere with a better climate. No hope of any of that now.

Poor thing! I would give you one of my passports only if we didn't look so different... Well, I hope you have some plan C.
it sounds as though Professa' Wilmott can have one or the other but not both

the other guy who wants to lead the socialists is saying he won't honor the results of the first referendum because he doesn't like the way the brits voted
Owen Smith says he will try to stop Theresa May formally triggering Brexit unless she promises a referendum on the final deal or calls a general election to approve it.

Who will get the Ulster Unionist vote?

I'm not a great fan of democracy but I'm surprised that someone who wants to be PM is so keen on defying the will of the people.

Anyway, there seem to have been virtually no ill effects of the Brexit vote, as was obviously going to be the case. By the time of any general election the EU could well be even further on the way to collapse so his position will look stupid. But I'm still hoping Jeremy "no reservations" Corbyn will remain Labour leader.

Early days yet, too early to declare victory. Seems UK will be in the EU until 2019, at least.

In 50 years time people will look back and think of this

I agree. We may never leave. There are many groups trying to overthrow or ignore the result of the vote. But it will become increasingly clear that the result was the right one so I'm hoping all these groups will fade away or be mocked out of existence.

It is an interesting experiment to brainstorm on future scenarios 5 years down the line..

S1: BRexit happens as 'envisaged'.

..

S10: BRExit won't be allowed to happen.
S11: short term memory ... what is BRExit?

Yes. One likely bad scenario is that all the Remoaners are such bad losers that they bring about all the doom that they warned about. Cutting off their noses to spite their faces. Carney obviously being the worst case, having the power to do a lot of harm and the arrogance to think he knows best with his Grand Experiment At The Expense Of The British People.

The Dutch: no business as usual, now there you are :)

Rutte also said any measures should focus on practical reform rather than grand designs for a united Europe. ‘The Netherlands will benefit not from visions of the future, but from stability and economic growth,’ he said.

Oh dear.

Had this discussion ...
first party : "UK has left EU and is thus technically not a part of EU anymore"

second party (yours truly): This is not true. It is voted _to leave_ which is not the same as _having left_. So, VAT must be paid.

LOL

That's like Ian Smith' UDI.

That's like Ian Smith' UDI.
Some writers and editors add only an apostrophe to all nouns ending in s.
Cuch has extended that to nouns that don't end in s.

You must admit it was a nice touch.

The purpose of an apostrophe is not to announce the imminent arrival of the letter S.

For some subliminal reason I was unable to append an 's' because that would imply and condone ownership. I do remember that infamous speech at the time.
