Re: Brexit Plan B?

Well, we have a six-month gap before approaching the cliff edge again, so some of the planning could be out of date by then, and obviously there would be no point in stocking-up on medicines and other perishable goods in the meantime.

Re: May Claims Asylum In Ecuadorian Embassy In London.

I like the cartoon which shows the Ecuadorian embassy sporting a Blue Plaque saying "Julian Assange stayed here for what seemed like 700 years"

Re: Brexit consequences

Well, I've run through various emotions during the Brexit process with sheer exasperation dominating, but for the first time I am feeling shocked and angry. Not by anything May has done (for once) but by the reaction to her belated attempt to cross party lines to find a solution (a bloody obvious mo...

Earlier today, I saw the word "Brextinction". Now, I DO like that!
Hmmm, not too sure about that - if Brexit means "British exit" then Brextinction means "British..."? :???:

Re: Brexit consequences

Some of the MPs do help in simplifying the whole process. F'rinstance, if Mark Francois says he's against something, then I'm for it - no further thought required. :thumb

Re: Brexit Plan B?

In a wild flight of fancy I considered what would happen if we applied some sort of voter political literacy test to a second referendum. I actually dread to think what the result would be if our MPs were tested on their knowledge of Brexit. A couple of days ago I was watching a Commons Brexit deba...

Re: Brexit Plan B?

So, May has allegedly dropped the ball into Corbyn's court - an interesting development, and one which creates much pleasure in observing the reaction of the ERG. However, can May and Corbyn really overcome their bone-deep political convictions to co-operate? Chances are that they will fail. I gathe...

Re: Brexit Plan B?

What is really striking about the voting patterns shown on the BBC website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47783127 is that nearly all of the Tories voted against everything, while nearly all of Labour MPs who voted, supported everything. By rights, that ought to cost the Tories dear if ther...

it's hard to believe that enough Tories are that stupid.
Quite a few of them seem to be getting on the TV in an effort to demonstrate you're mistaken... :roll:
