Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

If you are still interested in what anyone says about Brexit, Mrs May has made the speech in Florence, Italy,

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-41355642

EU negotiator Mr Barnier is expected to release a written statement on Mrs May's speech later.....
So TM rounds up some of her senior cabinet members (probably not a good idea to leave them home alone) and heads to Florence to give a speech to no one in particular, repeats most of the same stuff and this is going to make a difference.... if she wanted to be taken seriously she should have accepted the invitation to address the EU parliament and made her speech there, but of course it was for the home crowd in any case.

Well we'll see on Monday if they follow through on it, but they will still have to address the three issues set out in the exit agreement if progress is to be make. Although it does seem that a little bit of reality is starting to set in.

I must say there is a certain amount of irony in picking what at one stage used to be the center of finance and trade in Europe as a venue for this speech - hints of what is to come???
