The (all new) Brexit Thread

Boris has no intention of getting a deal, he and his co conspirators will continue to blame the EU, he will continue to try to close Parliament and get no deal. Where that will leave the UK's democracy is anyone's guess.

I don't think Boris has a choice now. It's a bit late to the party for him. I think he had planned on no deal. But without a deal he will need to beg for an extension, or face a vote of no confidence. It's looking very much like Greece. They twisted and turned, and threatened to trash the euro, and in the end capitulated like sheep. We will do the same. It's very humbling, but that's just the way it is.

If the snide remarks are at the expense of the British, why do you presume that translates as a hatred of the English? Britain is not England, England is not Britain.

I'm sure there is enough (justifiable) anger to be shared between our nation's as my Scottish countrymen, sadly, played a prominent and willing role in the subjugation, colonisation and horrific treatment of the Irish people.

If we do not accept the full honesty of our history, we cannot learn from it and move on, together. A lesson Scotland is slowly learning and one that England will one day have to face

You're quote has got mixed up. Kungfustu actually said those words.

It may be humbling but better than the alternative, snuggling up the US and becoming their lapdog.

I don't agree.  I think he's realising very fast that his only chance of salvation and remaining PM to fulfill his lifelong power ambition, is to buck up and start taking the job seriously.  It won't be a problem for him, his principles waver by the day and his career has been built on ruthless betrayal   You can just tell by his eyes that he knows the score.

He hasn't got a chance, he has surrounded himself with a bunch of psychos who will refuse to let any deal be agreed, the only thing they want is no deal and they will pull the rug from under him if he dares to speak of a deal, he is right back where May was.

What you see in his eyes is panic and fear, he thought no one was going to stare him down and they have and now he's stuck, hanging onto the only bit of rock left as the tide rises.

I'm not sure.

Maybe letting the psychos be in charge was a good strategy?

Stating somebody is a drug user is personal, as usual you jump in can’t help yourself can you.

The men on this thread often say one or another poster is drugged up or drunk just because the don't agree with their opinion.  Hilarious.  😄

Emily thornberry ? Are you serious .

Under pressure she is as gaffe prone as dianne abbott .

She may look the part , with that stony face and her disposition , but under pressure , at the dispatch box , she would be shredded .

Listen to the bloke who didnt go to university 😂

After the labour membership realises that they are unelectable under jeremy corbyn , they will elect YVETTE COOPER as leader 

Get your money on her now .

She is combative and tough .

I am talking about Yvette Cooper......there are a load of Mp's that are going to be in for a shock come the next election.....especially those that have done everything within their power to block Brexit even though their constituencies voted to leave.

Interesting report...more gammon tendency ?

Quote

It was among the more surprising results of the EU referendum. But the Welsh vote to leave the EU was misleading — it was caused by retired English people who moved across the border, according to Oxford University research.

The majority in Wales for Brexit was apparently swung by migrants, including older people who moved to Wales for its lower property prices.

“If you look at the more genuinely Welsh areas, especially the Welsh-speaking ones, they did not want to leave the EU,” said Danny Dorling, professor of geography at Oxford. “Wales was made to look like a Brexit-supporting nation by its English settlers.”

According to the 2011 census, 21% of people living in Wales were born in England, with nearly a quarter aged over 65.
