We knew they would try and get out of it if the vote was the 'wrong' one and we don't believe for a minute they are genuinely going to pull Britain out of the E.E.C.
Parliament could meet today and repeal the European Communities act forthwith; thus removing us in a single stroke and ceasing financial contribution, immediately.
But they won't.
They won't even invoke this so called 'article 50' to even formally tell them we're off.
That's because they want to buy time to let the dust settle, forget and manipulate opinion towards a quasi-member, compromise deal.
No doubt it will turn out in a future news 'revelation' that we're still contributing to the European budget.
Well it's no revelation to some of us.
Mark my words.
