    Really? This argument is done and dusted. Bexit's happened, we're now moving to a post EU world. Move on.

    Except Brexit is not done. The discussions go on and on, initiated by UK. It isn't the EU that keeps raising the issues over and over again.

    Brexit is done. We have left the EU. That is Brexit done. The changes to the way our country operates and interacts with the rest of the world are going to rumble on for years, but it undeniable that Brexit, which means the UK leaving the EU, has happened.

    "Foreign lorry drivers will be able to make an unlimited number of pick-ups and drop-offs in a fixed period in the UK under changes to rules proposed by the government to prevent shortages of products in the run-up to Christmas and into the new year."

    Brexiteers will be foaming at the mouth!

    The world is not post-EU

    UK has to adjust to a world where it has given up its votes and its power in the EU, which remains its largest trading partner.

    Indeed it has...

    Slowly but surely the predictions of what brexiteers called 'project fear' are coming true...

    And it's going to get far far worse!

    It's the post EU world folk are moaning about. It is ok to moan?
    Meanwhile The Express, Torygraph and The Wail continue to moan about the EU daily.

    Imo the way this brexit caper is panning out

    we could all end up with food ration books / coupons by the new year :eek:
    Due to this I
    also heard that plod may well be forming a new task force

    the alotmant task force ;)

    shortage of food plus ration books will mean that any one with an allotment will need to have increased security ;)

    UK has left the EU, you are correct, but Brexit as a concept is far more reaching than the simplicity (Ha, the irony) of UK leaving the EU.
    There is much yet to be sorted within the over-arching concept of Brexit.
    So, if you want, you can call Brexit done, in the simple case that UK has left the EU.
    But I see Brexit as a far wider concept, and I consider there is still much to be sorted.

    I do not see either of us being right nor wrong, we just have different ideas of what constitutes 'Brexit'.
    The very fact that the discussions rumble on and on, suggests to me, that Brexit is not 'done'.

    There isn’t any credible political party looking to rejoin the EU apart from the SNP if they get independence. So there doesn’t seem much point in going on about the stupidity of leaving the EU. The U.K. is in post EU period and the EU has lost some significant status having lost a major funder.

    Sinn Fein.
    There is every point in going on about the stupidity of UK leaving the EU. To ignore the stupidity of government's decisions would be to ignore whole swathes of history.
    EU has also lost a major thorn in its side. I would suggest the UK is by the bigger loser. Brexit always was a lose-lose situation.

    You claimed UK are not lowering standards.

    when I present the evidence they are, suddenly you don’t want discuss it.


    The argument will only be done and dusted when Brexit supporters start being honest.

    It is not about the stupidity of leaving the EU.

    this is about the continuing gaslighting by this Brexit govt.


    Your point about the EU losing a major founder is a blatant deflection and nothing to do with the UKs significant problems caused by Brexit.
