Britain Exit?   I have to say the politicians of all colours are making a complete hash of it. It is hard to know what any of them stand for anymore - except power for themselves.

Afraid to tell the truth more like.

Wrt to the leave campaigners I would paraphrase Stokely Carmichael .... "The punks were lying, period".
Unfortunately my generation, which should not have been allowed to vote on the topic anyway, screwed it up by swallowing a load of jingoistic cobblers hook line sinker and half way down the bleedin' rod.
You are never more than a dead dog away from a Country and Western song.
Similarly you are never more than a dog or an Amaral away on any thread here.

"In these circumstances, we must ask what we are achieving. William Hague once described the goal of Conservative policy as being "in Europe, but not run by Europe". The government's proposals will see us out of Europe, yet run by Europe, bound by rules which we will have lost a hand in shaping." - Jo Johnson.

I've never understood how leaving the EU was supposed to allow the UK to "get back control". Total mystery to me.

Mystery to me too.  I do suspect that others are cottoning on though.  In the unlikely event of someone having the balls to have a ‘let’s chevk the current mood of the meeting’ poll I think there may be a few disappointed Brexit enthusiasts. 

Some will be incandescent with rage (5%) some will think ‘quoi?’ And get on with life (30%) and the rest will breathe a huge collective sigh of relief. 

Final though have you noticed the more mouthy say ‘if we don’t get our Brexit, there will be riots’.  But never ‘I will riot’.
