London City votes for Hard Brexit



Last week the Prime Minister called for an early election in June in attempt to secure a mandate from the people to perform a quick exit from the EU.

We asked you if you preferred to go through the full negotiating period (a soft exit) with certain non-negotiable agreements in place, or you fancied taking your chances with a swift (hard) exit from the UK.

65% voted for a hard Brexit, whilst 17% voted for a soft Brexit and 17% were unsure.

Thanks for taking part.

Soft or Hard Brexit?



Decisions, decisions...

Theresa May has called a General Election in the UK for 8th June.  The third time in three years that the whole country has been to the polls.

It seems likely she will win and increase her majority in the Commons, and this gives her the mandate to push-on with a swift exit from the European Union instead of a long good bye.

The problem is this.  Do we hang around like an old scorned lover, in a broken down relationship trying to get the pots and pans in settlement, or do we just pack our things and sling our hook?

As things stand, a Soft Brexit means we keep paying in to the EU after we leave and continue to permit free movement of people in exchange for access to what used to be "the common market".

Or, do we just leave, stop paying the EU and regain control of our borders?  We would have to strike up our own trade deals and forge new friendships and renew acquaintances with the Commonwealth countries.   USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (who we are currently prohibited from trading with under EU law) have all indicated that they would like to strike up trade routes with the UK.

As always, this poll is just for fun.. So which option would you choose?
