- EU Referendum – are you in or out?
It’s not often I enjoy seeing Boris looking like a smug ****. In fact, it’s the first time.
Not sure how getting the SNP to walk out, especially after yesterdays ‘debate’, is going to play in Scotland. They should just come right out and tell us to sit down, shut up, and swallow what we’re given.Posted 8 months agoNorthwindSubscriber
“The only thing the Maybot is interested in is the survival of the Tory party”
TBH I don’t think she gives a shit about the party. She’ll give anything to stay PM for one more day but the longer she stays and the worse this gets the longer the more riven they’ll be, the more likely the fruitbats are to take over and the longer they’ll be in opposition.Posted 8 months agozippykonaSubscriber
One of our friends parents are typical gammons.
Even though they own a place in Greece they are total kippers.
Their favourite son, after many years has met a nice lady and they are in the throes of wedding planning and house hunting .
Mum and dad couldn’t be happier.
However he works at Jaguar.
She might not be buying a hat just yet.Posted 8 months ago

A majority of member states have turned against the UK and voted in favour of pushing forward on the next round of contracts for the £8bn project, despite requests for a delay to allow negotiations over British involvement to progress. UK firms are being blocked from bidding for contracts.mrmoMember
I wonder if there’s money to be earned for brits happy to take a job with a UK company relocating to the EU? Ideally being paid to live somewhere near the Alps?
Freedom of movement, still no clarity on residence rights after next march. Ignore the transition that isn’t agreed yet.
Wonder at what point the UK faces the possibility of a military coup? Starting to believe that anything is now possible and the UK may be needing UN peacekeepers in the near future to restore order.Posted 8 months ago
Who needs that crap when we launch our rival Gammoneo

Some really good jobs going at the EMA, would mean moving family to Holland when it leaves, which is lacking in elevation, but still very good jobs, I’m really considering it.

“Parliament will have a meaningful vote and to be clear there will be no hard Brexit, Anna Soubry says”
“Full details of the amendment to be tabled to the EU Withdrawal Bill will be published later, ahead of a 5pm deadline for debating it in the House of Lords on Monday.”Posted 8 months agocornholio98Member
The MPs in Westminster can have as many votes as they want if there is no credible plan and the negotiations fail then hard Brexit will be the default.
this is not something that is just a UK choice there are 27 other players and at the moment we have no plans, no direction and no hope…Posted 8 months ago
May won’t go for it but, as far as I understand it, if the government can’t sort out a deal then parliament steps in and I think that’s the most likely deal they’ll end up with.
Of course, you’d hope someone would say, ‘Maybe this is so stupid we should have another referendum just to make sure the country is still populated by idiots?’Posted 8 months ago
And it’s all fallen apart again.
Meanwhile back in the Lords…
Remember TJ that the government can falter but that the right of parliament to reject the deal and instruct any new government to ask for more time or retract A50 would still be there – if the amendment passes (and I believe the Lords have reintroduced it). How the rest of the EU would react is another (very interesting) question.Posted 8 months ago
To those saying Corbyn is useless on this – he is facing the same issues in some ways as May – his party is divided badly and attempts to hold it together are failing. He whipped “abstain” on one amendment, and got a a rebellion both ways with some rebelling to vote yes and some no. So no position he takes can unite the party and any movement away fromn a middle ground wil create more rebels on the side he moves away fromPosted 8 months ago
“a house divided against itself cannot stand” comes to mind for some reason 🙂Posted 8 months ago
Does anyone believe the commons would support no deal?
Does anyone believe the executive would be stupid enough to go for it without explicit commons support?
Then the rEU should simply refuse to negotiate in the full knowledge that either they will get everything they want or the UK will try to retract A50.
Brexit is lost either way.
And we should remember in this the Brexies who have tried to trash the UK. They are to blame and should be made to pay.Posted 8 months agoTurnerGuyMember

he’s not in the middle ground, he’s hard brexit but keeping as quiet as he can about it in the hope that as few people notice as possibe, but as time goes on everyone is starting to see his position, even though it was obvious from the start. His popularity is failing as people see how duplicitous he is.
He just says the same rubbish about keeping all the benefits of the customs union apart from the bits he doesn’t want, like free movement, as the tories said originally but not saying how he would magically be more successful in his negotiations than this lot, where it is likely that he would be worse.Posted 8 months ago
