    Sure, the U.K can use the Canadian free trade model, if they're willing to kill off their lucrative financial services sector.

    Free Trade is not a problem, and there are quite a few existing frameworks to choose from. The problem is NONE of them include the total access to the EU Single Market offered to their rules-abiding members.

    We actually have throughly discussed the pros and cons of the four viable Free Trade models back in v1, well before the Brexit vote. I highly recommend you (and everyone else who are new to this topic) to take a look:

    It may be too late for that. Frankfurt, Vienna, Dublin and Paris are already lobbying hard and the banks will have to take strategic decisions soon.

    No

    For a country that relies on internal investment (because we don't manufacture) we are starting to feel the results of what uncertainty looks like. And it's only going to get worse.

    Seriously, what the hell these MPs think they're doing? It's been MONTHS and they're still in denial of the referendum result or what?

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/201...y-brexit-with-commons-votes-are-subverting-w/

    The people have spoken, now these politicians need to work with each other more than ever to get the best Brexit deal, not undermining their own government's poker hand during the negotiation!

    Of course 62.5% of the electorate didn't actually vote to leave.

    The 'best deal' is the one they currently have: EU membership with UK rebate. It only goes downhill from here. Of course independence from the evil EU empire will offset all that.

    I don't think 'hard Brexit' is a bad option. It is the best on the table. The other is waiting and seeing how corporations flee due to uncertainty.

    It also turned out that 64% of the 18-24 age bracket did vote and not just 36% as originally reported. Among those folks - the one who actually have a future - 70% voted 'stay'.

    However, 90% of the 65+ age bracket went to the polls.

    The fact 12.9 million people couldn't take 2 seconds out of their day to tick a box on a piece of paper shows the apathy a large percentage of British people feel for politics in general.

    Honestly, how can you even get accurate data on who voted what. There was one question on an anonymous ballot. One day after the referendum, every news paper in the country had data on who voted what, but most of these polls had sample sizes barely in the hundreds. Basically, I don't believe a word they say, I can't blindly trust data gathered on 0.002% of the country.

    Well you have to go to the polling station, queue up, get a bit of paper, go to a booth, put a cross on the bit of paper, put it in a box.....

    The referendum should have had a 50% of the electorate threshold and voting should have been mandatory.
    The Brexit lot could then claim to have the support of the majority of the population and not just the majority who voted.
    The Electoral Commission should also have had the ability to veto the £350m to the NHS bus and the newspapers should have had to comply with the same reporting standards as the tv stations.
    The UK is usually governed by a party who gets 35-40% of the vote anyway so a lack of real democracy is noting new.

    Even with mandatory voting, I'd imagine a chunk of those 12.9 million would have just spoilt their ballots.

    The entire thing was a shambles. Leave side with ridiculous (downright lying) hyperbole about immigrants, the remain side doubling down on calling anyone who disagreed with them racist/xenophobic. There was no informed debate and no actual facts, just political football between toffs completely ignoring the fact that peoples livelihoods depended on the decision to leave.

    Add on top of that, NO contingency plan in the event of a Leave victory. You couldn't make it up, If this was an episode of 'The Thick of It', I'd have dismissed it as too ridiculous.
