Europe’s top two bureaucrats believe the UK could still yet change its mind on Brexit. Donald Tusk, the European Council president, said “our hearts are still open” to “our British friends” to remain in the bloc. And quoting the UK Brexit secretary, he added: “Wasn’t it David Davis himself who said ‘if a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy’? We here on the continent haven’t had a change of heart – our hearts are still open to you.” Read full article

    Sorry Brussels, we won't be changing our minds. Europhiles can forget it as well. We are on the brink of regaining our freedom. Change our mind when the EU is proposing to end all rebates, all opt-outs, all freedom to set our own fiscal policies, to become a unitary state where nationhood means nothing? You are out of your tiny minds. If you have any minds.

    I literarily jumped for joy when the EU referendum result was confirmed. Brexit means Brexit. And it Is happening.

    “our hearts are still open” to “our British friends” to remain in the bloc. ”

    After we have been punished they're still going to have to find a new member to make up for the money they are going to lose from the UK, which is what they really mean..

    “When the EU is proposing to end all rebates, all opt-outs, all freedom to set our own fiscal policies”

    Hardly an enticement for the UK to change its mind.

    They were told by Cameron the objections that the UK had to existing EU practices, they ignored them, saying you can take Europe or leave it, and surprise surprise, we voted to leave.

    Ironically, one of the EU's purposes is supposedly to prevent WW2 happening, forgetting that of all the European countries in the EU zone, it was the UK who did most to beat Hitler.
