Nick Clegg has repeatedly told us there will be no EU army. Feel reassured?

He also said they won't increase tuition fees. If Nick Clegg says X won't happen, you betcha it will.

But: We have a deal!

Now it's the time for the MPs to put the country and democracy before their partisan and class interests.

Looks like the British will suffer so that the people of Europe will one day be free. Again. Quitaly, Grexit,...

Would be good to see another disturbingly accurate Wilmott forecast on this topic.

Using (Gordon) Brownian motion maybe, since "continuous" and "random behaviour over time" seem to be appropriate model descriptions!

My powers of prediction peaked a few years ago and have since collapsed! But I’d say a second referendum is coming up on the inside.

I doubt there will be one. It would tear the country apart.

I think May will strike a deal with Corbyn and push her version of Brexit through the parliament. I'll enjoy watching Lord Adonis gnash his teeth and sputter with venom.

Great job, Theresa May! (Time and entropy will heal the rest of the wounds inflicted by the Holy Roman Empire.)

That is probably the stupidest thing she could do. So she’ll probably do it then! What will that tell every Conservative voter in the country?

That she put the country and an orderly EU exit before party politics.

True, her brief was to the heavy lifting after Cameron hid himself in his garden shed ;-)

So, assuming that the outcome will be hard Brexit and Prime Minister Corbyn, will anybody question whether Cameron made the right call? Or should we hold off the hypotheticals until we have cold hard facts on the table?

I bet on 1-5 but a 6 was rolled. Did I make the right call?

Or more accurately, I bet on 1-5 and some posh blokes took away the dice, my money and hit me in the face. Did I make the right call?
