    They need to leave, staying is probably the worst thing now, like having a disrputpive hose guest
    if they stay then all we will hear is what a glorious existence they missed. the "I could have been a contender " speech from the washed up guy in the bar bringing everyone down. best for everyone in the long term if they head off for a while and see.

    from the borderirish Twitter account. a very funny one to follow. .....


    A border took a stroll through a deep, dark wood
    Liam Fox saw the border and the border looked good

    ‘Where are you going to little soft border?
    Come and play a role in my new world order’

    ‘It’s terribly kind of you, Fox, but no
    I’m going to have lunch with a EUffalo’

    ‘A EUffalo? What’s a EUffalo?’

    ‘A EUffalo? Why didn’t you know?
    It has Donald Tusk, and free trade laws,
    And the ECJ at the end its claws’

    ‘Where are you meeting it?’

    ‘Here by these rocks.
    And it’s favourite food is roasted Fox’

    A border took a stroll through a deep, dark wood
    A May saw the border and the border looked good

    ‘Where are you going to seamless frontier ?
    Can you be solved by the end of this year?’

    ‘It’s really not possible, May, you know
    I hear more sense from the EUffalo’

    ‘A EUffalo? What’s a EUffalo?’

    ‘A EUffalo? Why didn’t you know?
    It has a flag and a customs union.
    (It nearly had a constitution).

    ‘Where are you meeting it?’

    ‘Here by this hay.
    And its favourite food is pickled May’

    Another likely Brexit casualty
    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/13/b...-industry.html

    .....
    Much of the worry stems from a looming fight with American publishers over sales in Continental Europe. For decades, the British have had this market to themselves, selling English-language editions of books in France, Italy and every other country in the European Union.

    That helped turn Britain into the largest book exporter in the world, with total sales equivalent to $6.8 billion per year, according to the Publishers Association, a British trade group. Just over half of that revenue came from exports, and the biggest export market is Europe.

    I watched that interview with Patrick Stewart where he said that if the people voted against the deal that they would simply stay in the union. I don't know if he's correct. Would it not just mean that they would still leave the union, but under a "no deal" default setting?

    I suppose the vote would be 'reject the deal or revoke article fifty', with the referendum question being 'in the light of the deal negotiated, should the UK revoke article 50?'

    They could do it on a PR basis listing all the options in much the same way as French presidential elections, i.e. in two or more stages.
    It would be much fairer obviously, but fairness is the last thing in the minds of odious Brexiter bastards like Johnson, Gove, Fox, and Rees Mugg.
