@david 12 - You're on a loosing battle here, the Remain representation in the Forums is quite loud.
It's unfortunate that some people want to define Brexit as 'cutting all ties with the EU', and treat A50 like a declaration of war. Despite absolving themselves of any responsibility, they're setting the tone as much as any others. As it is, we're changing the terms under which we trade, share, work and play with the member nations of Europe. Apart from a few extremists, you'd be hard to find anyone who wants to 'pull up the drawbridge'. I've heard more from the Guardian about 'not welcoming foreigners' than I have from the Daily Mail lately.
But hey, apparently the world is completely black and white, and it's all the fault of those evil Brexiters. No collective responsibility at all.
