Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

You won't read that in the Guardian or on BBC online.

You won't for the simple reason that Brexit, on both sides of the divide, is actually primarily about identity rather than economics.

Now I never quite got how important being 'European' was to so many on the Remain side. For Leavers then issues of national sovereignty were primary but for Remainers, whilst they hid behind the entire project fear schtick, when push came to shove they actually truly valued the notion of wider shared European identity. Losing that, due to the votes of us ignorant, bigoted Gammons hurt them in a way that many of us have failed to comprehend. Making their tears even more delicious to savour.

Yes, we get bombarded with the negative sides of Brexit but to be fair, that is how the media works. The mantra, 'if it bleeds, it leads' is true across every subject and bad news gets the views.

'C'est la vie' as a European might say. Such is the way of the world. And we should all take comfort from the fact that both the BBC and the Guardian are dying institutions. Neither will exist in their current form in 10 years times with our departure from the EU probably speeding their mutual demise up.

As a wonderful lady once said...'Rejoice!'.

He who laughs last and all that jazz.

Amazing to read of 'dodging a EU bill', there is no bill at all.

The UK will save 14 billions in contributions less its gains from the other way now lost.

The EU states will benefit from the 750 billion re-generation loan, the UK will not.

Desperate clutching at straws.

Brexit is a financial disaster for the UK.

Look who wrote this though!

Clearly whilst a very well-read and knowledgeable man he is hardly the most enthusiastic EU advocate, is he?

Eurosceptics exist in all countries. Especially those who work in the UK and have ties to Eurosceptics here.

Looks to me as though he is highly ambitious and has political axes to grind. Most of which are in Berlin and not London. Worth watching him.

Tut, tut. Never confront a Brexiteer with facts that don't fit their narrative. They might start to wonder where all those £350 millions per week saved has been spent on the NHS.

Well, the £22 billion wasted on the track & trace is equivalent of nearly 15 months of £350 million weekly 'contributions'. That £22 billion is just the tip of the iceberg of wasted UK tax payers money that's ended up in the pockets of those close to senior government 'officials'. Why isn't there a bus with '£22 billion wasted' written on the side of it driving around the country?

You mean apart from the £60bn extra spending on the pandemic?

Why do you say this sort of stuff?

Itís just patronising and makes you sound like an idiot which Iím sure you are not.

Brexit is generally forecast to be more damaging than covid at 9.5% lost GDP.

But all these things are subjective.

With brexit, just look at all the damage around you.

Jobs, investment, the UK breaking up, dreadful EU trade deal, businesses re-locating abroad, you know it really.
