Re: eh?

Not like the government is stock piling food or anything.

Ration books. Blitz spirit. That’s what they voted for.

@david 12

No, that’s Nigel Farage and Rees-Moggs you’ve got to thank for that. Brexit means leaving everything according to them, anything else is a betrayal of the will of the people etc.

"He is where he needs to be. He was frozen out of the brexit negotiations even after being the reason for a referendum and one of the few sources on the EU with a clue, so he is still the MEP, and will be until the democratic vote is honoured. No matter how much Junker may hate it."

He's still an MEP. And the democratically elected government is dealing with the exit - I'm not sure how you can say someone who isn't an elected member of the House of Commons (part of the democracy deficit argument) could possibly contribute? He isn't a member of the government, he's not a member of the House of Commons, he isn't qualified as an expert in economics or anything else - on what basis is that being frozen out?

We are exiting

I have 3 companies with enough turnover to make it worthwhile and we will be moving hq as a minimum to Ireland or Holland

You keep using that word "locking" - I'm not sure it means what you think it means. Maybe lookup Isolation?
