The Brexit Party

Smug wankstain Farage launched his new party by encouraging his supporters to commit criminal offenses against MPs and then resigned as leader. But social media seem more interested in two of his fans: https://www.thepoke.co.uk/2019/04/15/frank-reactions-to-the-couple-who-flew-over-from-benidorm-to-...

Re: Brexit consequences

An interesting blog post, dated January 29, 2019, but still relevant to the current situation. "Brexit cannot break the Iron Triangle." https://heterocephalusgabler.wordpress.com/2019/01/28/brexit-cannot-break-the-iron-triangle/ This is very popular on social media at the moment. If it is helping l...

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I gather that the government has instructed the civil service to cease planning for 'no deal' forthwith. I don't know how significant that is. Preparing for the no deal exit scenario has cost the country £billions. One Govt Department alone has spent at least £4b, every penny of which is now wasted...

Re: Brexit consequences

17.4 million people knew what they were voting for! Which was, it seems, endless temporary extensions to our EU membership.

Re: Fog

We still get fog in London, but not much. My memory tells me that there used to be more and that it used to be worse. I'd like to see statistics.

Re: Brexit consequences

the fact that May and Corbyn have dared to meet to discuss this has apparently enraged substantial numbers of MPs and members on both sides, with shouts of "betrayal!". This has made it glaringly obvious that these people put party interest (or to be precise, the interest of their sects within each...

New buzz word. - "Flextension."😵
I just heard someone say "Flexit", meaning a flexible Brexit. I don't like that. It doesn't make sense to me because once you've removed the "Br" it's just a flexible exit.

Re: Brexit consequences

The gossip is that she wants a general election. But two-thirds of MPs would have to vote for it and it's hard to believe that enough Tories are that stupid.

Why would someone take homeopathic water instead of medicine for a treatable cancer? Why would someone pay £500 to have their house exorcised? Why would someone vote for Jacob Rees-Mogg?

Re: Brexit consequences

I do hope you are right. If May fails in her effort to force the DUP and ERG to choose her deal rather than tolerate a long delay, we're likely to get maybe another year or two to think about it. And May won't be in charge. If we end up with the Labour Party's first choice: Leaving the EU but stayi...

Re: Brexit consequences

I've got a feeling that her deal will be passed this time and we'll be out. I think that there's a better than 50% probability of that. Possible, you just can't tell what some of these insane MPs will do next. But I don't think so. My expectation for a long time now has been that we will not leave ...

Re: Brexit consequences

The no-deal amendment vote of 312 - 308 was interesting. It suggests that if/when May manages to cock things up to the point where the only way to prevent a crash out is to revoke Article 50, a majority will vote to revoke. The 312 were saying that there must not be a no-deal under any circumstances...

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I do wonder how much longer this feeble excuse of a Government can survive, especially with a PM who appears to be not only something of a fantasist, but challenged by both truth and reality. Did you see the bit where, after Corbyn re-suggested the Customs Union, she tried to mock him, saying that ...
