A good majority of the British people voted for exit from the EU in the highest turnout on a political vote ever.

Hopefully, Mrs May will negotiate the UK good exit terms and stop the unregulated influx of EU and non-EU immigrants to the UK that is causing all sorts of problems with UK schooling and health service, and also cut down considerably the amount of money that we have to give the EU to waste.

The people have spoken. The doom mongering ‘remainers’ have been proved catastrophically wrong in their predictions of chaos and disaster since the IN/OUT vote.

Parliament has now voted with a vast majority of 461 in favour of triggering article 50 by March 31 with a paltry 89 against.

The UK is exiting the gravy train of the EU. So get over it and stop trying to set up anti-exit groups that will not only fail but will also waste even more taxpayer’s money than the High Court case and the Supreme Court challenge are already doing in a futile gesture for a Parliament vote that has already taken place.
