This article has been floating around social media in the last couple of days, the fact that we'll now have to pay for travel visas within Europe.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but but surely when "We" voted for the abolition of free movement within Europe it was expected that free movement would be abolished?

Boris Johnson and David Davies have quit today. The Tories are about as divided over Brexit as the rest of the country.
Come on you Tigers.

They always were, as were the other parties.

The main problem is, and always has been, that the referendum was too broad - a simple yes or no vote on a subject which is far too nuanced. As a result, whatever ultimately happens, no-one will be happy.

Sorry to disappoint you, but we're on a nett loss in the EU, so the strain will be greater on member countries after we've gone.
