Happy independence.

Brexit is a double edged blade, we still need to be very wary of the backswing as nobody yet knows what's in the box.

as nobody yet knows what's in the box.

Like Schrodinger's Cat - nobody knows if its alive or dead :0)

'nobody yet knows what's in the box.'

It's a bit like 'Take Your Pick'.

For the youngsters here, Take Your Pick was TV quiz show, where contestants would be offered the choice of whether to "take the money" or "open the box", which could contain good prizes such as a holiday or a washing machine. It could also contain booby prizes such as a mousetrap or a bag of sweets.

No guessing which box I believe we are being forced to open!

Good to see that the usual sense of optimism prevails here - nothing beats looking on the bright side, does it?

Hope for the best now. The transition period is easy; in a year’s time we will see if things work out after the future arrangements are known

Couldn't agree more. I'm sure we all follow that sentiment now that the die is cast.

"The transition period is easy"

Really - what makes you think that? It will be during the transition period that we have to have some very difficult negotiating sessions concerning our future relationship with the EU.

The transition period will be the exact opposite of easy.

What I meant was that in the transition period, little change will be obvious. Things like Customs Duties , border issues will be a big change at the year end. Of course the negotiations will be difficult but the “man in the street” won’t be affected by that.
