I keep looking at this thread, thinking we should all move on, but am magnetically drawn to it, nevertheless!
Aaaah - all those poor young things who think the oldies and wrinklies have stolen their future! Yet less than a third of them managed to get out of bed and vote! And what seems to have escaped them is the fact that we voted on their behalf - using our experience of the past few decades.
MPs in tears? (Anna Soubry - sorry, love, no sympathy. The status quo is just not good enough).
The markets are picking up. It will still be a rocky road, but we are strong enough (and some would say bloody minded enough) to weather the storms.
One thing is bothering me: we have voted "out". But until we trigger article 50, we are still in. So who the devil does this Juncker chap think he is telling us we have no right to be there, debating the issues etc? And why did Dodgy Dave roll over and allow himself to be excluded? Repeat: we have, as a nation, shown our intention. It is not operational until (and unless) we trigger Article 50 and two years' worth of negotiation on terms is completed.
So we are still in. And surely we should demand a place at the table and a voice? Or am I missing something?
