    Have you forgotten 'cast iron Dave and Clegg?'
    I would have thought you would be happy at this second chance, Labour can repeal the A50 legislation when the people sweep them back into power.

    I want us to leave the EU.

    I want us out of the Common Market.

    I want us out of the Customs Union.

    I don't want us joining the EEA.

    I want us to have complete control of our immigration policy.

    Calm down mate, calm down.
    Thanks for replying to my post to Swiss Tony.
    So from your answer I assume that if say as a price for getting a comprehensive ( ish ) free trade deal and the ability to have free trade deals outside the bloc ( which EU members cannot do), we agree to pay a large wedge to the EU each year , accept ECJ rulings on standards ,regulations, trade and commerce - which is necessary to trade with them - and agree favourable immigration terms for EU nationals ( whilst of course retaining control of our own borders), you would be happy with those compromises.

    What if we agree to pay an annual wedge to the EU?
    What if we agree some compromises on free movement ( i.e. not 'complete' control).
    What if we agree to accept ECJ rulings on trade to enable us to enter into a comprehensive trade deal?
    Happy with all of that?

    That isn't Brexit is it? In fact it sounds very similar to the arrangement we have now, which is what remainers are trying to sell as a soft Brexit.

    Nope. Wouldn't be happy with any of that. However, I've had my say on the EU in the referendum. I can't really affect what happens from here on in, except maybe voting for the party that I think have the best chance of delivering what I would like.

    If we don't get what I want I guess I'll just have to suck it up won't I?

    Interesting because all of those concessions have been given the nod by Government that they could apply in the transition phase and of course thereafter they don't seem unreasonable as the price the UK might have to pay to get a comprehensive free trade deal. In fact it's not really possible to get a COMPREHENSIVE EU trade deal without accepting ECJ trade rules and standards ( individual MRAs you don't need it, but they're limited deals). Also May has not ruled out payments ( not 'vast' sums in her words, yeah right she would say that wouldn't she). And Govt are already backtracking big style on immigration , so all these concessions are possible.
    So that could easily be Brexit couldn't it?

    You will.
    And I think you're going to be one very unhappy Brexiter.
    I on the other hand will be a delighted Remainer.
