    Even if they withdraw A50 a lot of the damage has already be done, reading through that list i posted earlier gives you an idea of how the exodus has already started and the amount of money a jobs that have been lost.

    From outside the UK, it seems like the UK expects the EU to just sit around and wait for you guys to make up your bloody minds. "No brexit on the 29th of March" and all. Hilarious if not sad. Either Brexit or don't already.

    At least 48% of us don't think that.

    But yeah, as a nation we're acting like we just need to say the same thing over and over to our EU cousins, just shout it this time. :duh:

    QT. Why do I watch?

    Well played Leave campaign. Offer them a moon on a stick and milk and honey, 2 years later you have them cheering for a no deal Brexit.

    Well manipulated.

    QT has pretty much become the BBC's version of twitter as audience members are asked for their opinion and people on the panel aren't given the time or opportunity to refute what's been said.

    Take a claim made by one audience member that received rapturous applauds and cheering for example, the claim that we should withhold the £39 billion and Barnier and his cronies would soon come begging: Such a claim is for the birds as when you have roughly an £800 billion budget £39 billion is chump change.

    And that's ignoring how much worse it would make us look on the international stage if we shirked our previous commitments and the costs involved in trying to defend such a decision.

    I don't mean to sound like a dick, but..

    Good. London Pride tastes like old Pedigree after it's been through a few bladders..

    Maybe Asahi can make it taste less terrible.

    You know what I was well against the deal as I thought we could be stuck in it with no say and no seat at the table.

    The way our Parliament has shown its inability to do anything whatsoever I'm coming around to thinking that maybe we should go for it and become the EU's biatch, perhaps it would be better. :lol:

    Same reason SoftBank invested tumpty-tump billion in Arm: Sterling has taken a dump and made it cheaper. That £250m has cost Asahi significantly less in Yen than it would have done early 2016.

    The lower the value of the pound, the cheaper it becomes for foreign entities to buy up UK assets. The longer Brexit goes on, the lower the value of the pound. Thus, the longer Brexit goes on the cheaper it becomes for foreign entities to buy up UK assets. QED.

    Asahi Holdings in Europe is based in London, for now.

    Indeed. And the next step is to close shop in the UK and move operations to the EU or Japan. After all ARM was only bought for the licence.

    This passed me by, if Brexit wasn't mad enough.



    Dutch boy band. So @Nexxo which one are you? :)

    I've gone beyond anger, despair, i'm now in the land of hysteria.

    Is there anything sane going on around Brexit, from anyone? :confused:

    I'm the one in the red dress. Obv.

    The only development is that Leadsom is starting to prepare the population for a delay of Brexit, because (as the Mirror predicted), parliament won't be able to get all the necessary legislation through in time.
