I've just watched Theresa May's Brexit speech. Quite good, I thought. What do you think?

I agree. Made a lot of sense to me. The EU politicians need to decide if they really want to cut off their collective noses to spite their faces regarding a trade deal. Their language suggests they do. Looking forward to Mutter explaining to a German car worker that he is losing his job for the sake of EU unity. Hopefully sense will prevail.

Well, the pound has gone up after her speech, so that's a good thing.
Will be interesting to see the Euro leaders and the Scots reactions.
She mentioned that there will have to be compromises along the way, I wonder what they will be.

Alfie thanks for posting Theresa May's speech - I listened to it throughout.

My thoughts :-
1. TM really is a good performer with a speech and I am pleasantly surprised with the amount of authority she projects .
2. Compared to our last Lady PM, TM can be strong without sounding affected, false and shrill.
3. The Govt. have taken all the hard and good decisions necessary IMO and this speech communicated the UK Govt's determination with dignity.
4. Other EU Members surely cannot miss the sense of the message about continuing with us as trading partners, friends and allies.

Pompui yes the £ had a little bounce - hopefully by the late summer we might get back to B48 or thereabouts. I am still 100% in favour of Brexit.

Well done Mrs May !

I too thought it was a well delivered speech which was firm yet conciliatory.

I think the UK holds a few "Trump" cards in the negotiations now. I did like Donald's comment about putting 35% tax on BMW imports to the States :D

I enjoyed seeing the PM Mrs May, sitting on the steps in the 'Lords' watching the progress of the Article 50 debate. And then Boris J did the same later apparently. It appears that the Govt. are going to stand firm against any 'Lords' resistance.

It is hard to know what the real progress is with Brexit - every connected comment from anywhere seems to get hyped up while the real work goes on in a few minds in Govt. and in the Ministries. IMO it will all come out OK as EU interests accept the inevitability and start to make the best of the future with the UK outside it.

Time will tell.

Hopefully the dreadful Tony Blair will crawl away before too long and leave the democratic process alone.

The "un-electeded "pm will drag you's all off the cliff. Your going to be overun with indians and aussies due to your brilliant free trade deals ...! Thank fuck for the S.N.P !! How ironic is your post Roger...ypu are  watching one un-elected fool, overlooking a house full of even more un-elected fools,
then watched over by a self confessed remaining fool ! All this for the sakes of taking back control of "Democracy" IMO you are well and truly screwed. !!
Real progress on Brexit???
The only real progress that i see is that the so called "U.K " is dead in the water and little England is a sinking ship thats trying to emulate 30's Germany !!
Im enjoying watch this unfold and im looking forward to the day that We consign yous fools to decades of Tory fools rule ,while we take control of our bright futures. !! Thank You Rodger .

That's probably the silliest prediction I have seen about Brexit.

little England is a sinking ship thats trying to emulate 30's Germany !!

Trying to emulate 1930s Germany? How so?

im looking forward to the day that We consign yous fools to decades of Tory fools rule ,

You mean they will get who they vote for?

while we take control of our bright futures. !!

Good luck!

But I suppose you'll have to ask the UK government for permission first, so speak nicely to Mrs May and the Tories.  :)

Im from Gods country Caller, however currently in Laos and beer Lao so cheap here ;)
Alfie , you realise all these so called "free trade deals" that the May Muppet is negotiating , will include more "immigrants" coming to England.
And in ref to 30s germany.. Hate crimes are up so much in England. The snoopers charter is reminiscent of the stazzi/gustapo. And May Muppet thinks shes the femme Adolf!! Welcoming racists like Trumpet with open Arms to meet the Queen "fellow german aristocracy"
We will claim our freedom without asking stupid tory fools!!

Just to move away from the rather inane direction this topic was beginning to take, this article in today's Indy should buck us up - if true!

The American  'Treasury' stated the same a couple of weeks back in some sort of advisory note. I am wary  of anything coming out of the EU in these pre-negotiation days.

Ah, you're Scottish! I think Anton & maybe others would request you start a new thread about a free Scotland, but as this is simpleton Sturgeons threat to the UK if Brexit happens, I'd say fine, go ahead, do your own thing. You're broke because of SNP policies and getting more in debt everyday. The level of debt in Scotland precludes membership of the EU by the EU's very own rules (although that doesn't mean much) and alone, you'll be in a worse state than Greece and as it is you're only surviving via Government subsidies, which in fairness applies to the whole of the UK. But the debt level is a lot lower south of the border.

Bon voyage!

I really don’t believe that will happen or be agreed to in any future trade deal

And in ref to 30s germany.. Hate crimes are up so much in England.

Police Scotland report an increase in hate crimes following the EU referendum
THERE was a rise in the number of crimes reported to police following the vote in June.

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/police-scotland-report-increase-hate-8688744

Number of hate crimes against Muslims in Scotland nearly double over past year
http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/number-hate-crimes-against-muslims-8901809

We will claim our freedom without asking stupid tory fools!!

If Scotland secedes unilaterally from the UK, the EU will refuse to accept Scotland as a member.
