"How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?"


Rise, like lions after slumber 
In unvanquishable number! 
Shake your chains to earth like dew 
Which in sleep had fallen on you: 
Ye are many—they are few!

"Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms and looks which are
Weapons of unvanquished war."

Bright new day, literally - at least I've got a train and am not soaked - and looking forward.

Serious question. What do you think will happen next? Also, what will happen when a heck of a lot of the public realise that things will not change that much and the status quo remains?

As Professor Unwin would have said, "Deep joy and chortleymode".

That's all I can say for now.

@ anonymous, the public have been told it takes at least two years from Article 50 being presented. This gives our political leaders enough time to formulate policy for afterwards.
That they'll get it wrong and misjudge the public is more or less a given.

"Yes! Yes! YES!!!!!!"

There were a lot of 'When Harry Met Sally' moment in household all over Britain on Friday morning... :)

"Serious question. What do you think will happen next?"

Well, I wasn't expecting quite as much squealing and tantrums from the losers, or so many broadcasters losing their shit on live TV...but it was quite heart-warming! And I think things will indeed change.

"This gives our political leaders enough time to formulate policy for afterwards."

Sensible, forward-thinking politicians would have prepared plans for both eventualities. We'll see in the next few weeks if we have any.

"Sensible, forward-thinking politicians would have prepared plans for both eventualities. We'll see in the next few weeks if we have any". Stop, stop I'm laughing too much. I don't know about you but I thought the look on the faces of Johnson and Gove was 'Oh s**t! It wasn't meant to end like this'. I predict things will get a bit messy when some people realise there won't be £350 million per week for the NHS and immigration will continue as before. If I was a naughty Frenchman I would be thinking about removing border controls at Calais and allowing the open air medical school to come to the UK.
Interesting times ahead and I have little hope for a quick resolution.
