Stop talking about Brexit and get on with it

Back on 23rd June the United Kingdom held a referendum on whether we should remain in the European Union. As everyone knows the vote was for us to leave the EU, which has caused a great deal of grumbling from the minority who voted to remain. Every time that I turn to the news channel there seems to be some discussion on the subject. Usually this amounts to our new Prime Minister Theresa May stating that “Brexit means Brexit” and adamantly insisting that it will go ahead as planned. The problem is that each week she is making the same statement, but absolutely no action is taken. Now the cabinet is discussing what strategy they should apply and what arrangements need to be made. Once Britain officially declares her intention to leave, the process could take up to 2 years. This makes a mockery of the idea of planning prior to starting the process because 2 years should be adequate time for us to sort out the details. Theresa May is making all the right political noises, but doing absolutely nothing to put the claims into action.

Patience is a virtue. She was in the home office prior to this cataclysmic damp squib of a result, so she's making sure the deportations can be tracked, I suspect... A lot of people in the UK will need to be repatriated, a lot of trying times ahead. Not to mention all those Brits that will need to move back "home" when 'free movement's rights are lost...

@JohnRoberts The financial concerns gave warnings that the economy would severely suffer. In light of those warnings many companies put expansion or modernisation on hold while awaiting to see the results. This creates a slight drop in the economy, so the financial concerns claimed that as proof. In reality it was a drop in expenditure that they had actually caused.

@Asylum Do you ever convert spreadsheets to images for yourself, and if so do you use the print screen function to do that? I've used it for years that way but it doesn't seem to be working correctly anymore and I'm at a loss what to do about it. (I wrote about it last night, but didn't want to tag you).

Like I always say. We can make anything work. It is just a matter if our leaders and society as a whole wants to make them work. Sure, somethings work better than others and that is why we try new things. People's egos get in the way and they tend to sabotage things just so they can prove they were right along.

She needs to get article 50 rolling asap...personally I'm thinking there may be fireworks ahead and the EU nations will try to negotiate us into staying. I hope not as that'll push even moderates like me into doing something...what that something would be I don't know
