    After a YouGov poll revealed declining support for Brexit, James O'Brien ponders who are the people who actually think it's 'going well'. He concludes that it must just be the Editor of the Times, Daily Mail, Telegraph, because 'unless you've got your head up your backside', you'll be aware of the 'continuing problems' the UK is facing.

Greetings from germany. I recently had a conversation with a coworker (also german) who said that "it's great for britain that they left the EU!". When I asked him why he would say such a thing he listed all his gripes with the EU. I proceeded to educate him on how brexit has been going for you guys and asked him why all the other members have expressed no wishes to follow your example. He did not know anything about brexit and had no answer to my question. I have said before that history will remember brexit as the stunning application of the dunning-kruger-effect to an immense number of people and I stand by that statement.

I would just like to relate a case study of the damage of Brexit. My wife and I run a fine jewellery company, employing 7 makers in the UK. We have retail sales globally and have wholesale stockists in the UK, Asia, Singapore, Australia and our major market in the USA. Since Brexit we have been dropped by all of our European wholesale stockists due to the Brexit imposed import tariffs and costly bureaucracy and red tape they have to deal with to import our work. Since Brexit we now have zero retail trade in the EU from our website, due to the taxes our often longstanding private clients now have to pay when our jewellery is delivered to their doorstep. Brexit has directly damaged British business. We are a small international company- our once nearest and most profitable market is now lost to us, and Brexit is why. We may now have to lay off employees in the UK due to loss of trade due to Brexit. The damage of Brexit to UK business is real, and cuts across all sectors. Brexit is economic suicide.

They won't admit the glaring truth which is we imposed these restrictions on ourselves. We could have done a Norway and left the EU, but stayed inside the Single Market & Customs Union, but no, that wasn't enough for the hardliners, most of whome still think the reason it's failed is because it wasn't hard enough!🙈

James, you are missing a key element. It is not a UK decision to join the EU. The UK can only decide that it wants to apply, the individual EU member countries will make the actual decision. VDL is correct, in my opinion, but is playing a long game. Eventually the UK will join, it will take a decade (I think) before the debate and political parties in the UK are mature enough to apply and then a minimum of 5 to 10 more years to meet the criteria and agree/accept the terms that will be available. The UK will have to be grown up enough to fully commit to the euro, for a start, no special opt out etc. The lesson for the EU from Brexit is that, they can not allow any half in, half out members like the UK was, again

Little chance of the voting age being raised in the UK. There talking about lowering it to sixteen.The biggest problem with voting at any age (to my way of think)is nobody is taught history any more, well not properly at least and without knowing history we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of history.

American here. They can't unless they change the Constitution. The 26th amendment states, "the right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age.

Ms von de Leyden's comments and tone are probably the best thing to come from Brussels since 2016. As a Europhile Brit (and 20 year military veteran so poke your "you're not a patriot" BS) I've always felt that the EU didn't really try very hard to keep us as European citizens and ignored remainers choosing to see a stereotype football hooligan/Brits Abroad image as representative of the 48 million people who didn't vote for Brexit. The recognition and the very reconciliatory tone in her comments are most welcome even if I feel they are a bit overdue.

At least twenty years ... Because it took three attempts and nearly a decade to join the first time and that was without the animus generated by Brexit. So assuming that it takes a decade before the first attempt at a new referendum on the issue is conducted and won (pretty optimistic in my opinion), then the same amount of time to negotiate terms and be accepted by all 27 members like the first time, then we are already at about twenty years. Sadly in my opinion I think that rejoining as a full member is likely to take a lot longer than twenty years. Full membership is now contingent on adopting the Euro, something that I suspect is beyond the pale for most in the UK. This would be such powerful ammunition to use to torpedo any attempted ,"rejoin" referendum that I suspect Brexit is truely a one way street for the UK, many decisions are unfortunately 😢😢😢

Indeed. Adopting the Euro will most likely be the litmus test for rejoining.

I saw Robert Peston on tv this morning, and he says we should give Brexit until 2036 to see if it works. If we leave it 2036 the UK will not have the money to rejoin the EU.

Politics in the UK is all linked to business and that's why there is a conflict of interest and corruption. The system needs to change to get rid of the conflict of interest and work towards what's best for the country and its citizens and not the politicians wallets.

Reunion is certainly a more positive term. Unfortunately it requires all countries to agree and the situation in Europe is rather unstable. Mr. Barnier said it best when asked if he hoped the UK would rejoin the EU by responding how sad he was that they had left. Probably the best answer available for the foreseeable future.

Correct.After Cameron got it wrong (that is he thought the people would vote remain)he was nowhere to be seen for years. Now he thinks just enough time has passed for him to return in the post as Foreign secretary although what the consequences of his return to his political career are not clear to me.
