I think he voice a lot of the things that are wrong with the whole attitude of May.
You can't tell nearly half the population to shut up moaning and expect folk to accept statements like "No deal is better than a bad deal", she should be reassuring us that she'll do her best and keep going back until she gets a decent deal.
The Brexit deal, whatever it turns out to be won affect the wealthy, it will hit ordinary people, some of whom can't weather high prices and more austerity.
If we end up paying huge amounts to leave it will mean more cuts.
Apparently we have to pay for EU projects we're involved in and all sorts of things we aren't aware of.

Exactly TessA that is just what upsets me. The rich will find a way to make money out of this. It's those who are already struggling and vulnerable who will suffer. What upsets me is that the press continue to hide the details or news articles are buried under headline stories about someone reading the wrong thing at the oscar ceremony...

There definitely needed to be a cooling off period so people could re evaluate their vote.

I know many in Wales are now regretting their decision.

Tess the EU are already planning to get their funding back. You do not join a group and expect a return. Many billions of pounds worth of funding has been handed over in grants.
