  1. There is only one song for Brexit. As originally sung by The Supremes, but perhaps most famous when covered by the gorgeous Bananarama:

    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye
    We’ll never love you, the way that you love you
    ‘Cause if we did, no no, we wouldn’t make you cry
    We might be thrillin’ baby but a-my love (my love, my love)
    So dog-gone willin’
    So kiss us (I wanna see you kiss us, wanna see you kiss us)
    Go on and kiss us goodbye

    Na na na na, hey hey-hey, goodbye
    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye
    Listen to me now
    We’re never near you to comfort and cheer you
    When all those sad tears are fallin’ baby from your eyes
    We might be thrillin’ baby but a-my love (my love, my love)
    So dog-gone willin’
    So kiss us (I wanna see you kiss us. I wanna see you kiss us)
    Go on and kiss us goodbye

    Na-na na-na-na na na na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye
    Hey hey-hey, goodbye
    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye
    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye
    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye

  2. Lunch? I suggest humble pie and sour grape gravy train, with bitternut squish, fresh garden piss and Brussels pouts. Juncker can do the booze.

  3. I can’t wait until Junker or that fat bearded slow German book seller is serenading May with something like this:

    It’s been seven hours and fifteen days
    Since you took your love away
    I go out every night and sleep all day
    Since you took your love away

    Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
    I can see whomever I choose
    I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
    But nothing
    I said nothing can take away these blues
    ‘Cause nothing compares
    Nothing compares to you

    It’s been so lonely without you here
    Like a bird without a song
    Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
    Tell me baby where did I go wrong

  4. A quick Google reveals Bananarama are still going……

    I hate to think what Bananarama gig would now look like.

  5. And for the Remainers, I say:

    Yes, I agree, there will be problems; economic, social and political, mostly caused by the intransigent desire to punish of Juncker, the bookseller and one or two others who fail to see that it is in the interests of all (not just the UK) to reach a good agreement. I also understand the underlying panic those same people feel as their project starts to fall apart. Making a good deal difficult might shore it up in the short-term, but I am sure other countries which do not want to punish and which have their own doubts regardingn their future membership will take VERY good notice.

    I am prepared to put up with those short and medium-term problems to be free of a moribund, politically perverse, socially malignant and economically incompetent supranacional entity (for want of a better word).

  6. Indeed.

    I was thinking that I should get a bottle of decent champagne today, but with a view to drinking it in 2 years time when we leave.

    Then I thought, but shouldn’t I get something else? Some NZ fizz, maybe something British.

    But, no. It should be vintage Champagne. Because it’s still the best IMO. Because this isn’t about us buying Champagne, or les Francais buying find shoes from Northampton or Germans and Spaniards trading BMWs and chorizo.

  7. Brotherhood of Man – Save Your Kisses for Me?

    More like Motorhead – Brotherhood of Man:

    ‘You cannot hide the truth from me I know what’s in your heart,
    Greed and jealousy each equal, all your days now dark.
    Mighty mountains fall in dust the world falls into hell,
    Faith in lying prophets, no one to lift the spell.’
