Queens speech was watered down due to Mays minority government, main priority was Brexut, which will likely no longer be hard brexit, due to possible backlash by many of the tories own backbenchers. So may be a soft boiled brexit after all.

Also no mention of the grammar school agenda, or the fast track fracking agenda (good, as i hate fracking) or hitting the pensioners (thank goodness).

One thing that really stands out about this recent election is that it has put constraints on the P.M. which is a good thing.

She must be kicking herself now for calling an election in the first place.

The five stages of brexit:

1. Wild, unfounded optimism
2. DENIAL (current stage)
3. Anger
4. Grief
5. Depression

I think the brexit campaign should adopt this as their theme tune

Like Brexit itself, no-one with a lick of sense thought it was a good idea. The only saving grace being it's put that pompous bint in her place.

I predict 18 months of stumbling about. Probably swapping leaders, possibly swapping parties but still with a small enough majority that all the EU has to do is stall and watch us fall apart.

Do not think it is in the interest for the UK or Europe to stall over this as we have major trading agreements and taxes to sort out, plus all the legalities and laws ASAP, especially those UK citizens who are working and/or living in Europe and vice versa.

It could be in the interest of hard line Brexiters to stall. We then fall out of the EU with no deal, out of customs union, trade area and freedom of movement. UK then has to slash taxes, and state spending (e.g. privatise the NHS), and turn us into the large tax haven just off the EU shores.

Happy anniversary. 
I wonder how many of the 52% are still happy?

Judging by question time last night the country is still broken and likely to be for some years.
Anyone know how you get a Dutch passport?

No, they aren't, but they made their decisions for the wrong reasons, and it's harder to admit you screwed up.

If your nerdy enough to be interested in a podcast on the subject I recommend Brexitcast from 5Live. 
It was running as Electioncast but was well received enough that it's now regenerated, Dr Who like, into it's new guise.
