    When a referendum was taken for leave or stay in EU no mention was made by government that we could have a position where we could be involved in having a soft Brexit or a hard Brexit? I voted for Leave the EU? not to stay in a reduced EU where the EU still controls some of the terms?
    So Why have we paid them Billions of Pounds for a reduced Brexit?

    This country can be great again, all we have to do is believe in ourselves, that will never be accomplished while we continue to be little more vassal state to the EU.

    I and the majority of the United Kingdom voted to leave.
