“Just A Minute” – Two Years To Talk About Brexit Without Hesitation, Repetition Or Deviation!

Reading Time: 4 minutes Brexit is so blank, just anybody can talk about it without hesitation, repetition or deviation, and still not know what the hell they’re going on about.   Rumours have it that Brexit day may be delayed for up to two years, which will give dear old Theresa May enough time to hold as many general […]
