    That was another of my issues - I read 300+ pages and not much happened! It was all setting the scene for the next book rather than a self-contained story with more to follow.

    Which would be sensible. Or make voting compulsory. But we knew we had none of these things going into the referendum, and that the result would be that the side with the majority of votes would win. It's the one thing they didn't lie about!

    There's a notion the whole country can get behind!

    I've seen numerous people say that 17.4 million people voting to leave the EU is not enough or representative or valid. The overall turnout was larger than most general elections!

    Both sides lied. Neither side took it seriously at all - except with regards to certain individuals boosting their public image. I totally get the need to stand by a referendum result. But the whole thing is, was and continues to be totally farcical.

    This needs to be an option on any future referendum.

    Aargh! Now I don't know if I should try and get through the trilogy!

    But not enough. Arguments still rage about the low turnout for the referendum - 5% won't persuade anyone.

    Impossible I would think for the moment. I don't want the UK to be part of the euro, but I think we could be more supportive. But there's little appetite for getting closer to the EU.

    We have been a bad fit - but we don't have to be. I would be interested to see what we and the EU could be if we committed to it.

    I'd have kicked us out way before now! We have the most concessions of all member states. We snipe and mutter and grumble and won't fully engage with the EU. Our press and most of our politicians are snarky and often downright insulting to the EU. Yet they have mostly been patient and understanding and accommodating. Brexit has taken up way too much of their time and resources. If the EU want to move forward to further integration I think they have to let the UK go.

    This is me too. She is resilient and stubborn - but it's a two-edged sword. She needs to be more flexible and open to other ideas.

    Ah - thanks. I thought Corbyn had done something - but that would mean he actually did something ... Edit: I do him a disservice: he did table a no-confidence motion but it got defeated https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-46899466 But he can table another one if he wants to!

    Didn't they try that already, and effectively protected her from any further such action when they failed?
