we're fucked.
Forgive me, but I don't think so. What I see admittedly through rose coloured glasses is a situation similar to what we have here in Washington State; ie a very liberal and progressive London which embraces internationalism and the EU, vs the rest of the country that see's it as a none starter that's gone too far. The fact that Boris won with a considerable margin and the Tories picked up over 40 seats in parliament bears that out. Wailing, gnashing teeth and pointing at racist little Englanders doesn't change that.
As a comparison here, Seattle and King County are a liberal blob in an otherwise conservative state, however because of population densities they usually drive the agenda and go so far as to file lawsuits if the vote goes against them. You can extrapolate that to the entire country with Trump winning the Presidency by electoral votes over a majority popular vote going against him and the democrats engaging in one pathetic witch hunt after another trying to unseat him.

Tough shit for the party that lost in both cases, but if you're going to have a vote then you have to except the possibility that it'll go against your wishes and make whatever the outcome is work.
Best post in the whole thread. 
Thank you stevent.  :thumbsup:

Just curious.  Do you think it will be. a hard Brexit or more like a Norway style agreement keeping the single marketplace.  Considering Boris’ lack of veracity, it would not be unlike him to promise one thing and do another.

He no longer needs the ERG, a hard right anti-Europe group in the Tory party, because of his huge majority. so I suspect he may go for a softer Brexit. But who knows? The man is incapable of telling the truth or stringing a coherent sentence together.

Some English friends and I have a long running joke about this.  Whenever Brexit comes up, we offer to sponsor them for immigration, and whenever Trump comes up they offer to sponsor us for immigration.

We're in agreement on both of those topics.

I'm not sure I've ever been more excited about sitting back and watching how the cards fall.

None of it is going to affect me much, so I really don't get that excited about it.

Of course I enjoy stirring the pot a bit here and there.

We might be a long way behind China and the Us but we're still one of the world's biggest economies. Our economy isn't doing well. We are courting China and a somewhat out of control regime in another big country. We won't be tackling climate change very well. We'll harbour all sorts of criminals, their money, etc.

It'll affect you Clay. Don't worry.

Happy Brexmas, the vote is in.  Or should I say the vote yesterday is OUT by Jan 31.

It’s definitely much easier watching “politics as usual” when it’s happening in another country.
