    You do realise the EU isn't a sinking ship?
    Perhaps a skin 9 months ago might ve been wiser for you?

    After we leave, will I now have to register trademarks in both the UK and EU rather than the current sitation where there is just one form to fill in? In other words, is there more red tape?

    I have no idea what that's supposed to mean, but i have found a correction for your mataphor: we're leaving a brand-new and perfectly-functioning cruise ship in the middle of the north atlantic in a leaky wooden lifeboat during a storm.

    In case you haven't read the news, we're at the mercy of the EU, and i promise you that freedom of movement will continue to exist long after we have left.

    the express supported leave. and who cares what the telegraph and times think, when the OVERWHELMING amount of consumed media supported leave. don't kid yourself ,you weren't the underdogs.
    I'm going out on a limb here but maybe their readership cares what they think? And I was being sarcastic, all those papers supported leave(which I didn't vote for).

    just because they're popular doesn't mean they constitute all news. If I had 3 papers, one of which held 50% of all readership, and the other two 50% combined, then the two smaller ones ran a story that the larger one didn't, what story is supported more by 'the news'?

    considering the ability for people to consume news online, if a certain story is spammed everywhere it's going to be more prevalent than a single article on a popular newspaper

    Oh yes, brexit will basically mean status quo but there's more red tape. There isn't a country on this planet that would agree to a trade deal with the UK without freedom of movement as a given. Leave voters are living in la la land
    No other country in the world requires free movement for trade...

    It's not traitorous to support remain, it's traitorous to run headlines which support ridiculous assertions made by random eu officials such that they are granted legitimacy and in doing so undermine the negotiating position of this country. Betraying the country in favour of virtue signalling and stubbornness.

    What if you think that the deal in which this country/government is trying to negotiate would be to the detriment of the people living here? I would be in favour of undermining that power if it would favour an alternative, and better, deal.

    Neither individuals or headlines have a 'duty' to support the ambitions of the government.
