There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?

3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Barbara Windsor should have been given a gong years ago, for services to innuendo, so it's lovely to see that, at long last, someone has given her one. :D

Wasn't she best friends with the Kray twins and other assorted mobsters?
Still, given some of the other dubious characters HRH invites to tea it should come as no surprise (and I don't just mean J S)
