    Should I stay or should I go now - U.K. in/out of the EU (contd.)

    Well at least they’ve learned something from the EU!

    Off topic but in my school they made me hand out glasses of lactose based drink whilst wearing a giant bull’s head. Yeah, I was the Milk Minotaur.

    WTAF reconciled himself to the fact that Brexit wasn't going to happen a long time ago so there'll be no accusations of back stabbing from me (except when talking about Gove of course!). The timeline has very much been Remainers were in charge, Remainers are in charge, Remainers will be in charge. I don't think that's overtly controversial (or far-rightest! )

    I must have missed when the person in charge of DexEU was actually responsible for the UK's negotiating position.

    The reason so few people are pushing for it is because in order for the Leave side to be able to come with their own plan they would need to be in a position to negotiate a deal on their terms with the EU, ie. in power. Otherwise, as is now, whatever is proposed is just met with a 'this is just not possible, the EU will never agree to that'. I would suggest the status quo suits the remain camp far more than the leave one. Whilst in agreement with the principle, a referendum with 5 options on the paper just isn't going to happen. It may seem simple to you but you have to remember we are talking about the British electorate here! Given the hoo-ha with regards to spending limits (and its perceived influence on outcome) in the last referendum, I doubt creating a system where Leave campaigns can legitimately outspend Remain by 4 to 1 would be the smartest move either.

    You might be on to something here. If Labour win the next general election maybe the tories can stay in power whilst launching a series of legal objections to the change of power. Then they can agree to handing over power after two years, so long as that is followed by a 2 year transition period whereby all the key decisions are made at Tory Party HQ. During this time of course, plenty of analysts and big businesses can come out with a series of stats and statements to inform people how Corbyn's economic policies would be bad for the economy as a whole. We would also learn that some of the promises made by Labour in their manifesto were undeliverable and that the electorate was misinformed. After all that is done, we can have a new General Election, Conservatives win by a big majority and everything is ok because people change their minds, new facts come to light and politicians lie.

    So in summary, we don't have the right players.

    And if anybody on the JLR management team is blaming Brexit for a 50% fall in Chinese sales, then they should be the first ones to be fired!

    Ross McCormack

    Interesting piece, wonder what his big secret is? Having said that, if Bruce was deliberately trying to change the perception of McCormack’s professionalism then it was his greatest achievement at Villa! Even when I was reading that article, I could hear myself thinking...Ross McCormack...

    Just out of interest, in which countries of the EU do Strawberries grow naturally in January and what percentage of pineapples and bananas sold in the UK are produced in the EU?

    I think a more useful gauge would be to see figures for age and education combined. I think it is fair to say that the number of graduates amongst the over 60s is simply fewer than in today's under 30's. I don't know many 70 year olds with a 2.2 in Media Studies from the University of East Anglia!

    I would have said it was an essential first step in beginning to tackle the real problem.
