Thread Name: BS: Is this Brexit 4?
Subject: RE: BS: Is this Brexit 4?
It is not 'the will of the people's as we keep pointing out. It is the will of 17.4 million out of an electorate of 46 million. You cannot totally disregard the will of the rest and expect to get away with it. But all this is beside the point and has been discussed ad nauseam. The only way forward with this discussion is to focus on how to get the best deal for the entire nation. Surely that is what everyone, leave or remain, wants. To achieve that is a juggling act and, in my opinion, beyond the skill of the current administration.
Does anyone have any real and positive ideas of how this can be achieved? I have given my preference. Leave the EU; apply no tariffs to EU produce; remain in the customs union; allow movement of EU citizens but apply more stringent controls. I think that satisfies most requirements but realise it is over simplified. How about someone else coming up with a better compromise?
