Bringing Back Manufacturing Jobs Would Be Harder Than It Sounds
We will bring back manufacturing, but not manufacturing jobs. The jobs went overseas because labor was cheaper and often better or more responsive.

Not using Article 50 sounds like the worst of both worlds: take the economic hit in the markets and convince Brexiteers that there really is a democracy deficit.

Actuually, it will change people's opinions, especially if the entire Ummah condemns each and every vicious act done in the name of Islam - and calls for fatwahs against the perpetrators there of.

Donald Trump Wants To Be Called ‘Mr Brexit’ And No One Knows The Hell Why
Jack Sommers use of "the hell" certainly raised the intellectual level of this piece; from 3rd grade to 6th. How brave and sophisticated of him to use a swear word in place of an argument.
