    Wrong again. Those who thought it a foregone conclusion didn't think there were sufficient misguided people to jeopardise the kids future by taking us out of the EU.

    And a petition on Change.org is gaining traction. https://www.change.org/p/scottish-canals-save-the-falkirk-wheel-canal-link/u/19831343?utm_medium=email&utm_source=51489&utm_campaign=petition_update&sfmc_tk=ZDa1IHEVv7R1W3smjM%2bH3%2fOaXUVsnGGl3YbumomXkKT1vV1t88wulHYbZv9nwg2%2f

    I think that you need to be very careful what you wish for if you want security to be up for negotiation. Whilst a variety of Policing matters, including the European Arrest Warrant will be part of discussions, we would be shooting ourselves in the foot if we opted out of it. On that front I imagine that the other EU countries are supremely indifferent, if we want to fight cross border criminals on our own, so be it. If however we are talking about intelligence then that is a whole different ball game. If GCHQ received good intelligence that a bunch of returning Jihadis from Syria were going to carry out an attack in Berlin do you seriously think that it is in any way OK not to tell the Germans, just because we have negotiated a crap trade deal? I would go as far as saying that we would be breaching our NATO commitments if we chose to take that line, and once again Putin would be laughing his socks off. Not only would we be trying to damage the EU which already makes him happy, but undermining NATO, that's like Christmas to him. The other side of the coin would be our own border security. If we want to play hard ball over security the French may also play hard ball over the Calais refugees (they may still do so if Le Pen gets to be president). They could easily adopt the attitude,"You know all those Border Force staff you currently have in Calais preventing illegal immigrants getting to the UK? well they can all go home now and we are going to remove all of our security measures around Calais. You can deal with these illegal immigrants when they get to the UK rather than on French soil as it currently stands. We only need to stop people coming into France, are we bothered if they should want to leave?" . A rather selfish attitude I would agree but if we want to play it that way, why not? Security is a double edged sword which could harm us as much as we harm others if we withdraw co-operation.

    Happy Boxing Brexit Day! The name derives from a ritual dance in which we skip around a burning bus while punching ourselves in the face. copyright J.K.Rowling.

    There is a big difference between being trading partners and being subsumed into a European superstate

    I agree 100% it's up there with the National Trust, Ordnance Survey, and of course the canal system ie things the rest of the world are green with envy about. But I still think most of us use R4 as what psychologists call security or comfort zones eg I have no interest at all in gardening but I have to listen to GQT and get very upset if I miss it. Same with the Archers I haven't the faintest idea who anyone is even though I've been listening to it for over 30 years. I have latched onto the storyline about women and the cricket team but only because it is laughably ridiculous.

    No, it isn't. But there is no coherent policy, and nobody (least of all Johnson, Davies and Fox) has any idea what leaving the EU means in the real world. The Brexicides know this to be true, so all they can do is crow about "winning". We shall see.
