The current situation with regard to Brexit is really becoming interesting as our political class wrestle with the consequences of the vote.
The Conservatives must know that unless they can induce a "large" turnout and get voters on their side they will be given a good thrashing at the next election. When all those who always participate in elections - about 40% of the population, express their serious view they will not forgive those who promised sunshine and Manna from heaven for The National Health Service to the tune of 350MLn a day or something like it.
Migrants were identified as being the problem when in fact they are essential to the running of our economy in so many areas and will remain so until such time as this country can raise a generation trained and educated to replace them. Even in the "Service Industries" such as hospitality, where early starts and hard work are required the current crop of youngsters do not cut the mustard in sufficient numbers to replace the migrants.
My own feeling is that a way will be found, because it has to be, to set aside the referendum vote and maintain our position in Europe. Perhaps somebody will goad our faithful adversary Putin to attempt an adventure in the Balkans which would require a response like the Garda of old to take all their bikes out of the shed. If another Crimea like event takes place anywhere, and we know how easily they can occur, that will probably be enough to ensure that the discussion of Brexit ends in the interest of European security.
Newsnight, this evening carried an item on migrants who have decided that their future is in this country, even if they have to sleep rough - they now face forcible removal for doing so if they are caught. What an extremely sad reflection on England.
Far removed from the 60's, when such people were welcomed because they were needed in all the plants around the country.
Doing a lot of decorating and so need my beauty sleep
Mosly agree with your post torquay however I think many realise it would not be good for UK plc to leave the EUA. If they can find a legitimate basis to avoid leaving they will use it. Seems to be a songle issue which made peoples blood boil. Very interesting watching developments in Germany, merkel got a hammering. She need to change policy rapidly or she will be out on her head. Change in EU migration policy could be the fig leaf to win over the brexit came. Torquay, UK is far from out if the EU yet. May is doing the right thing, waiting and watching and saying nothing...
The country hasn't left yet although I suspect that it will - the "Brexiteers" have taken on a new lease of life they say, can't imagine why since the country was never less prepared to stand on it's own.
Those days in the sixty's are gone and for good - the manufacturing base was destroyed with much of the machinery sold off to Asian country's as the coal fields were shut down.
Brexit is not going to create more new jobs and it is not going to restore the manufacturing traditions and production with new machinery being bought - who would lend the money, Europe probably has bigger fish to fry now.
Brexit does create fire in the belly I see, I respect the will of the people that's why I say leave now as the people have spoken, but I'd say eu might give uk a timeline to rejoin eu in same terms , I suppose you could say a chance to reflect on the garbage been fed to them by leavers ,they might cough it out in a few years and rejoin on same terms as they have today , after all uk is a democracy and should be allowed to rejoin if they feel fit .
