    I voted Remain. But the democratic referendum vote went the otherway - to Leave. What's done is done. We all need to get on with it now and make the very best of it as we can - together.

    So, let's now stop being negative people with negative views.

    I think that should extend to drones too.

    When I saw the thread title 'Today's droning' I thought it was going to be a rant about lawnmower noise, so I suspect some people started off on the wrong foot.

    I think, and hope, that if the thread was re-branded with the title 'Photography with a view', (or something similar), it would prompt members to view it favourably and post their own views and videos

    Word for word what you say. We can carry on blaming and talking ourselves into the mire, or move on, adapt and make a success in the long term.

    Obviously Iím bashing on, donít get me wrong and whatís done is done, but I will never forgive or forget the lies and complete disregard for the obvious problems that brexit would and has caused. And the fact that so many major issues were completely disregarded and the whole campaign rested on a false promise to the NHS and Turkey joining the EU. And Nigel Farage somehow bringing Syrian refugees into to the mix

    But just shutting your eyes and carrying on wonít necessarily help. A great deal of shit has yet to hit the fan on this. Northern Ireland troubles, more popularity for Welsh independence and the actuality of what might be real Scottish Independence, Iím looking at you

    It seems like the best thing to do would be to close this thread

    I can do that
    Not sure I should though. I find it entertaining seeing Brian still bleating on

    While I don't want this thread to keep going, it's ironic that pre-brexit, all the predictions about what would happen were just that: predictions.

    Whereas now, we are in a better position to say whether Brexit was good or bad because we can actually see the results (albeit only the short-term ones for now).

    Having said that, people will always argue "yes, but that would/wouldn't have happened anyway". So as with most politics, it's all still opinion.

    That's my final word on the subject. Hopefully this thread will drift into oblivion along with the CL's and TH's ongoing discussion debate about a balanced portfolio vs the price of gold. I wonder how that tracker is looking today.

    Surely now Bitcoin or Tesla shares?

    As for: "...whether Brexit was good or bad...we can actually see the results..."

    Not really. The UK departing from the EU has affected how the EU has behaved and now behaves. When we were a part we could counter-balance the inanities of idiots like Macron and with our departure he and Merkel et al are free to behave like idiots.

    I always thought our membership was one aspect of our assistance for developing countries.
