Re: Brexit consequences

Were you in Wetherspoons again? :D I haven't been in a Spoons for some time. Unfortunately I was at work. One colleague is an idiot (the one I was arguing with), another is an all-out UKIPper. Fortunately there are a whole bunch more who are OK. That's far more worrying. One assumes that strategies...

Re: Brexit consequences

I had an argument last week with someone who thinks that "no deal" will give us tariff free trade with the whole world. And is thus a very good thing. I suspect this sort of confusion is widespread. The media, including the BBC, are not helping to clarify these distortions of reality and generally ...

New Years Resolutions

Though there is an overlap between cynicism and skepticism, and I can provide no logical reason why people should make resolutions on New Years Eve, it is still the case that many people do. It is possible that in joining together in choosing and announcing these resolutions we might find them more ...

Re: Stupid ******

Frankly I don't care if he was calling Theresa May stupid or the whole party. They've all done something incredibly stupid and he supported them doing it. It's done, it's stupid. And that's far more important than whether there was a trace of misogyny in his hypocrisy.

OK - but that's not an error from her point of view then - although it might be what we want.

Allowing the bill to be defeated would have led to Nodexit or Ref 2 - neither of which she wants.
But she doesn't get to change the outcome, only the timing.

Re: A second referendum - or a general election?

Many are pointing out to Jacob Grease Smug the incongruity in claiming that 63% support is insufficient whilst also stating that 52% is the incontrovertible will of the people.

Re: Brexit consequences

Could have done with a prolonged Tory leadership contest where they all set out their plans for Europe and used that to get a mandate from the party instead of May become PM by default with no greater policy than "Brexit means Brexit" for nearly 2 years.
