Brexit will be Rock 'ard!

The Prime Minister Theresa May has broken all the doubts and speculations on Britain leaving the European Union in one fell swoop with a speech she gave this morning, see: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-38641208. Out means out. Not half-in-half-out, not "Brexit Lite", not "micro-Brexit", not "I Can't Believe It's Not Brexit"... Out. The United Kingdom will cease to be part of the European common market in any way. Instead we'll have to scrape along by doing what we used to do for centuries beforehand, including the period when we were the most prosperous and successful nation on earth; set up our own bilateral trade deals with individual states, absent some bureaucratic overarching third party regulator. The final deal will have to be passed by Parliament, but based on last year's little experiment this should not be a problem, see here for details: https://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/brexit-is-back.html. The Prime Minister's speech will dash the last hopes of the "Remoaners" and hopefully this means we will no longer have to endure their dictatorial whinging about "second referendums!" and "We're the 48%" and "people's challenges!" David Lammy and Gina Miller etc will have to find another hobby horse to occupy their very excessive free time. This speech means the path to Article 50 should now be a downhill run. Wouldn't it be great if it could be triggered before the 23rd of June, when we celebrate UK Independence Day for the first time?

I know you British are hard on each other, none more so than your politicians. But believe it or believe it not, your parliamentary system is the envy of the world and your politicians by far the least corrupt and most propitious...and you do not have to look far for proof. Here in the former land of Saints and scholars we have proven IRA murderers and liars as TDs, bankrupt tax evaders elected by landslides, primary school teachers in the cabinet (and as Taoiseach), not to mention a leprechaun for President!
