of course they did, and, I have pointed out very clearly why; even so, you should not deny the efforts of politicians whom did make a genuine effort to fight during the referendum -- go listen to the comments of Benn and Powell at the time, there on y-tube. Powell even promised to fight on in the Commons until the country voted out at a future date. See his interview on the BBC if you wish to do so.

I see the bungling Trump as weighed in today to the UK election.

Dribbling on about trade deal not possible with Boris, jeez why doesn't he just give Corbyn a Million bucks to help him win, free kicks like that are brain dead.

Should keep his nose out.

Farage has announced he wont contest Tory seats as its risks delivering victory to Corbyn and Remain - Good move, he now needs to pull out of tory winnable labour seats, I think thats about a week or so away.

Brexit been given the green light by the EU. Officially starts on Saturday. A very happy day but Vinegar Tits (European Parliament Vice President) didn’t think so telling them to stop waiving their flags and leave. Lol. Go BoJo!!!

Brexit could be a trade bonanza for Australia and WA in particular according to The West. They reckon trade deals that were in place before the UK joined the EU were turned off and WA accounted for about half of Australia’s exports to Britain. So opening up trade agreements again will be great for our economy.

Also I recall reading that there was talk of having visaless travel arrangements between Australia and the UK though I can’t see Dutton agreeing to that in this day and age. That could be a free pass for terrorists.

Can't see much changing in short term mate, I have dual Aust/UK citizenship, and until I think December the rights of movement remain the same for UK Passoprt holders through the EU nations, but that will change UK passport wont get you the same movment or rights in the EU., Then again its almost certain they will neogtiate a Schengen Zone agreement.

Funnily enough I work in the international trade space and have done in one form or another for 40 years. In October of last year I was hit up by a UK recruiting company on LinkedIn to see if I was interested in moving to the UK and working for the government in Whitehall on a 2 year contract helping to formulate international trade policy. I'm good mates with EY's Global Brexit Partner in London who confirmed it was legit when I ran the correspondence by him so I said to the recruiter sure why not and had a telephone interview and quite a bit of email correspondence. As I understand it it's still progressing so will be interested to see what pans out in the short term when the UK actually departs the EU.
