    Seen mobile versions on A roads too.
    Will they be turned off today or just rolled into the nearest ditch?

      Nah - they'll have some value, so the pickeys will get there first!

                The first line of that link made me laugh!

                "An MP demanded Boris Johnson is truthful with the public"

                Since when has 'Pants on Fire' Johnson been truthful about anything to do with Brexit?

                  I didn't see in the comment that the poster was a remainer supporter!

                    It's been in the general news for weeks that the govt is spending/wasting (depending on the news source!) on a "Get ready for Brexit" advertising campaign. The Magic Money Tree seems to provide an abundance of fruit for Brexit despite having been unable to provide extra money for the NHS and public services.

                        Not regarding the comment in question but from numerous other comments, one wouldn't have to be a genius to come to such a conclusion

                          Re: Motorway Brexit signs.

                          I seem to remember this has been said before but............ Surely any subject worthy of discussion by adults is going to attract opposing views and opinions. I agree about the comment regarding hostilities but, so far, personally have not seen anything hostile on this or other recent threads discussing Brexit. Any lively worthwhile debate is going to attract banter, tongue in cheek mischief and providing this does not turn into abusive personal comments then it should be acceptable. We have already had numerous threads closed by Admin over the last year and the resulting lack of activity in the Lounge could possibly be the result of this action.

                          Brexit is the most important development for the UK since the 2nd World War so it is only natural some feel it should be discussed in the Lounge which after all is a Board specifically for Non Photo topics. No member is forced or obliged to visit the Lounge and read or take part in the discussions, so those who feel offended by the comments only have themselves to blame.

                          On the other hand, those who can't express opinions without resorting to hostile comments should be dealt with by Admin on an individual basis.

                          If the above is not acceptable to the membership and Administration maybe it is time to simply remove the Lounge from the forum and restrict all discussions and posts to Photographic comments only.

                            I agree with all of that. Here's hoping it can all stay civilised then!
