@PbaxterPeter @f_grovewhite Let’s think. 1) leavers haven’t come up with a plan. 2) we were told by the PM that we were “citizens of nowhere” and that our views didn’t count 3) a narrow victory was taken as a landslide 1/?
@PbaxterPeter @f_grovewhite 4) a one question advisory poll became a mandate for state control of migration, pulling out of the single market, euratom, open skies, europol, the customs union, and dozens more, adding thousands of bureaucrats to the state payroll 2/?
@PbaxterPeter @f_grovewhite 5) the government tried to assume absolute power to decide without parliament 6) parliament then supinely voted to avoid scrutiny of future trade bills 7) 3 million EU citizens were described as “bargaining chips” 3/?

Here follows a well crafted summary of the U.K. #Brexit position from the @guardian CIF section:
1. We are < 1% of global population (less without Scotland) To put things into perspective India produces more honours graduates than we produce kids.
2a. Without the economic muscle of the EU we do not have the means to get good trade agreements (Trade Agreements are staggeringly complex legal documents.
2b. Signing them is easy, getting a good one is the trick and that takes time, a team of knowledgeable and experienced negotiators and economic muscle, all which we don't have).

Will EU?
You drink your cafè 
I sip my tea, 
And MPs sitting here, playing so cool, 
Thinking, 'What will be, will be.' 
And it's getting kind of late now, 
Oh, I wonder if we'll stay now, 
Stay now, stay now, 
Or will EU just politely say 'Goodnight'? 
I move a little further from you, 
Not knowing quite what to do and I'm 
Feeling all fingers and thumbs, 
I spill my tea, oh silly me, 
It's getting kind of late now, 
I wonder if we'll stay now, 
Stay now, stay now, 
Or will EU just politely say Goodnight? 
And then we vote, much too much, 
This moment has been waiting for a long, long time, 
Makes me shiver, 
Makes me quiver, 
This moment I am so unsure, 
This moment I have waited for, 
Well is it something you've been waiting for, 
Waiting for too?
