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 the...

Re: Brexit consequences

May used some words yesterday in parliament that made me think.

"I fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this house."

Re: Brexit Plan B?

I suppose you have to look for something to smile at. "After nearly three years of hard work Parliament finally whittles Brexit options down to the best 16." Conservative backbench MP Simon Williams told us, “Think of how many possible versions of Brexit there were when we voted to Leave in 2016 – ...

Here's the vid. Serious question - why would someone buy one of these?

Useless gold coins

There's an ad on TV ATM (ch4 and 5 mostly) where some bearded chap (who is a lord of some sort I think) talks in sombre and respectful tones to try to persuade us to buy a coin of some sort. He describes in it some detail - its squarish and has got stuff on it like Britannia and national plants and ...

Re: Brexit consequences

I've got a feeling that her deal will be passed this time and we'll be out.

I'm probably wrong.

I believe another option is to revoke Article 50, which we can unilaterally.
Yes indeed. That's three then.

Re: Brexit consequences

...and presumably hope that the result is acceptable to the EU.

My view is that there are only two possible outcomes now and those are leave on the 29th with no deal, or extension and 2nd referendum with the only options being leave with no deal or remain.

I could of course be completely wrong.

Re: Brexit consequences

Confused. May came up with a deal some time ago which was universally slated by all as it was a crock. A part of the crapness was something called 'The Irish Backstop'. This was seized on as a stopper. All the rest of the crapitude was forgotten as the stopper was a ...errr... stopper so the rest of...

OOps! Just another problem that seems to have been missed. "No-deal Brexit panic after ministers realise the UK doesn't have the right pallets for exporting to the EU." LONDON — The UK government is due to hold emergency talks with industry leaders today after discovering that the country doesn't h...
