How do you propose it continue with the ever increasing amount of debt ?
What happens when the interest on the debt is equal or greater than GDP and we can no longer service the debt ?
What happens when because we cannot service the debt nobody will lend us more money ?
What happens when they stop peoples pensions and benefits and try to raise taxes ?
What happens when the police and the doctors and the armed forces don't get paid ?

My gut feeling is Brexit may never happen as the economic consequences might be massive.

A mate went to order some block pavers the other day, only to find they are no longer made in the UK and the Austrian company who owned the British company had taken all production to Austria - with a 26 week wait for UK buyers!

I don't think its any coincidence ether how many large firms are making or planning to make UK staff redundant. M&S and Tesco have announced today they are cutting back with job losses.

The joke gets bigger by the day. By a bit of simple maths, the £8 billion we now pay to the EU will be swallowed up by the £20 billion HMRC says its will cost just to implement any new Customs system. :D :D Will that fit on the side of a double decker bus?

At some point someone in Government needs to have the balls to say enough is enough.

If only the greatest cost to the UK were simply the financial one. :(

If you cant find a solution - make something up. This isnt a solution, it's a fudge that means they cant fix it.

That is not a workable solution , we would be better off letting the clowns from chipperfields circus negotiate as opposed to the clowns we currently have .

It’s a case of the UK trying to have its cake and eat it.

Before we had the referendum the politicians should have sat down and worked out what was viable and then give the people the options on which to choose. As it is we have a complete mess with shit getting ready to hit the fan very hard and very soon.

The fundamental problem is that May can't keep both sides of her party happy whatever she does. The only reason she's still there is so far she's successfully managed to keep the peace by actually doing fcuk all. We are nine months from leaving and this cabinet of cretins haven't even agreed a BREXIT strategy. The closest we got to any detail was BREXIT means BREXIT.

She needs to pick a side (hard or soft) and get on with it, or ideally do us all a favour and fcuk off!

I can foresee the Tory party splitting into pieces from the fall out.
