    Well then, rest assured your government is functioning exactly the way all governments do.
    Distract, delay and scare the populace while ensuring the sick system stays on life support. Just tap your feet to the "beep, beep, beep".
    And, of course, the bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy.
    Opportunities abound! Land and titles available! Be bold! Enquire now!
    See Cazique Gregor MacGregor of details.

    We voted for a thing called prop 13 over here once. They told us not to but we did anyway, and the Sky fell and we all died. That was back in '78 I think. Can't remember cause we all died, right?
    Still no clue about brexit, though...

    Brexit has caused a serious rift in our family to the point sister never wants to be in the same room as bother again otherwise she will punch him on the nose.

    I am sick of Brexit. IT was a stupid referendum based on lies. If parliament can't agree it should go back to the people to have a voice. That would be true democracy.

    Not a good choice, a right wing, gung ho, Brexit style govt. would come down heavily on porn, you wuld have to emigrate to Holland and then you would be replaced by a sex robot.

    On Saturday Tiger Roll won the Grand National for the second year. The next day I turned on our music system as we were sitting down to our usual Sunday roast meal and from some 2500 tunes it randomly chose to play Land of Hope and Glory. In the afternoon we watched the Boat Race on TV, something that we have done since we were children. At that time Brexit seemed irrelevant. Evidently being British hasn't been affected by EU membership that much and it is unlikely that whether or how we leave will affect it much either. The European Union was someone else's dream and in many of the member countries it is now becoming harder to find them as disillusionment grows. The UK may appear to be dithering but other countries are too. We just do it with more confidence.
    'Sharing an experience creates a reality.' Create a new reality today.
    'There has to be some give and take.' If I can take my time I'm willing to give it.
    'The most difficult criticism that a writer has to comprehend is silence.' So speak up.

    what disillusionment is that? -

    that we have free trade with our largest trading partners, both imports and exports?
    that we are bound by European laws of human rights, that offers justice far beyond our own laws?
    that we have to pay our membership dues, which is far outstripped by free trade income?
    that we are free to travel, live and work in any member country without the hassle of visas and permits?
    that we are part of a financial power base independent of the whims of America, the middle and far east?
    that one's efficient, cheap and friendly plumber happens to come from Poland?

    as your post underlines, the British do not take very well to change - but that is what we voted for, hence the dithering.
    which, if anything, betrays a total lack of confidence.

    The EU could do with reform and this does feel a little like a missed opportunity for it. The frustrating thing about the UK in the EU is that we just seem to bitch about it but never constructively engage to change it for the better.
