    My Mum wouldn't complain either, as it would mean she actually gets to see me I take an annual visit at best these days. Her fault for living in the rear end of Aberdeenshire!

    I don't think anyone would've expected the EU to say anything other than what they did. Though I had "soft brexit" as joining the EEA, which is still an option but won't appease the immigrant hating brigade.

      You can have 'hard Brexit' or no Brexit at all, EU council president warns UK

      Britain has to choose between a "hard Brexit" or no Brexit at all, the president of the European Council has warned, dismissing one of the key claims of the Leave campaign that the UK could "have its cake and eat it".


      I know what does hard brexit even mean, well he then clarifies

      He said there could be "no compromises" on retaining benefits such as access to the single market and customs union, while rejecting the free movement of people. Mr Tusk will be the chair of all summits between EU leaders to discuss Brexit negotiations.

      NAIL IN COFFIN.
      From the first link:

      “This means a de facto will to radically loosen relations with the EU, something that goes by the name of hard Brexit," he said.

      • He did a comedy quote though..

        The leave campaign said something along the lines of we could eat the EU cake, and still have the EU cake too.

        His reply was this:

        “That was pure illusion, that one can have the EU cake and eat it too. To all who believe in it, I propose a simple experiment. Buy a cake, eat it, and see if it is still there on the plate.”

            Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake".

              Why does this need to be said? Didn't we vote to leave the EU?

              Does anyone expect to keep access to the single market, free movement etc? Isn't that what we've voted against? We don't want those things.

              Too much of the 'discussion' so far has been "well you wanted Brexit so have it" - it's up our elected government now to decide not what we do, but exactly how we do it.

              Just please get on with it. It's going to be difficult enough without spending months / years working out exactly what we've voted for. Just leave. Go. Take your stuff and go

                                But as an aside note, we already have multilingual signage in many places - i really don't see an issue with that.
