Not very good news for Brexiteers... I read that Farage was furious.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Frightening, isn't it? I wonder how many candidates The Brexit Party Limited could put up at a GE?

The one thing no Brexiter will tell you is what price he/she is willing to pay for Brexit. Nor are they concerned about what cost others will have to pay for Brexit.

yes, what really pisses me off (well, one of the myriad thingies!) is that most of these people would not risk their own or their families' welfare by engaging in madcap schemes or activities on a personal level - eg pyramid selling schemes, gambling, etc - you get what I mean. Yet what else is Brexit but a madcap scheme, a leap into the dark for no discernible benefit? It is not just a question of vulgar economics versus the prospect of some greater national autonomy. They must know that Britain, post hard Brexit, will collapse, not really into economic ruin. but into a political chaos which will dwarf anything seen so far, and that we would end up being a satellite of Trump's America. But of course coffee and the rest do not realise this - coffee's main concern seems to be immigration, but how about a lot of (sorry!) coffee-coloured Indian migrants coming over as a result of a panic trade deal with Modi, who already demands more visas for Indians wanting to work in Britain. What would you feel about such an outcome, coffee?

This would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic.

So far the UK has agreed "continuity" deals with 10 countries and regions:

Andean countries (signed 15 May)
Norway and Iceland (2 April)
Caribbean countries (22 March)
Pacific Islands (14 March)
Israel (18 February)
Palestinian Authority (18 February)
Switzerland (11 February)
The Faroe Islands (1 February)
Eastern and Southern Africa (31 January)
Chile (30 January)

Meanwhile, the Brexiters want us to rip up a beneficial trade for over half of our economy with our nearest neighbours. Utter madness.
Absolutely nobody is talking about threatening our place in the Single Market
Daniel Hannan MEP, Vote Leave before referendum
Only a madman would actually leave the Market
Owen Paterson MP, Vote Leave before referendum
So be under no doubt: we can do deals with our trading partners, and we can do them quickly. I would expect that the negotiation phase of most of them to be concluded within between 12 and 24 months.
David Davis MP, Minister for Brexit

Wholesale liars and charlatans the lot of them.

BIG: Britain helping to lead the way with $1 billion tech unicorn companies.

72 now in the UK compared to 29 in Germany and 26 in India.

Remember when we were told we needed a new EU treaty making us a vassal state because of the Irish border? Turns out that was another big fat lie, with the EU already preparing technological solutions for a WTO Brexit. Project Fear busted!

I'm genuinely fascinated that you seem to be taken in by this guff, coffee. But when they have a solution that is practical, implementable, legal, actually works and doesn't breach the international treaty, please do tell us about it, coffee.

FORECAST: Brexit Party could win up to 252 MPs depending on next Tory Leader.

“Choosing Rory Stewart could push even more disaffected Conservatives to vote for the Brexit Party and might propel Nigel Farage toward Number 10.”
