    There are slow-moving trainwrecks, and then there's Brexit.

    Projects like these needs to maintain momentum with strong leadership, not constant backpedaling and second-guessing from everyone.

    The fact I can't tell if you support brexit or are mocking those that do says a lot.

    Exactly what I said. The main parties are clearly not going to allow a Brexit to happen. So do the voters turn someone that would? Brexit remains a very popular idea, and I know for a fact that there is dramatic growing discontent with the British establishment parties. I honestly have no idea how things will turn out but it is interesting.

    Actually both parties are committed to brexit, it just wasn't defined as to what it would actually involve so now the parties have to do something to please a largely ignorant group of the electorate, despite it not being in the best interest of the country as a whole.

    The idea that a leave vote somehow entails a hard brexit is as farcical as a a remain vote entailing adopting the euro, joining schengen and replacing all the road signs with metric distances.

    The remain advocates consistently said that leave was going to be chaos, with no defined goals and no plan in terms of delivering timely and tangible benefits. And surprise surprise, it's complete chaos. You all got what you voted for. To now complain is the height of stupidity.

    Interesting to see Raab emerge on the scene he's been touted as an eventual leadership candidate in some quarters , though it seems like May is reasonably safe from her own party at the moment Rees-Mogg isn't going to be able to get enough support force a leadership contest .
