tebee, have you got one of the sandwich boards

with 'The end of the world is nigh' written on it.

Honestly, you worry too much about doom and

gloom. Get out and have a bit of fun for the New

Year mate.

I had a burst pipe in my kitchen at 6pm new years eve - I'm still pulling out the wreaked units and putting new ones in !

 

It's at times like this I miss Thai concrete kitchens .....

  May i humbly suggest , you Google  the five  year forecast on  Gbp / Thb  exchange  rates , 

    predicted  to be as low as  36,  if we are  lucky .

     

   

Yeah the Thai economy is tough as old boots,

whereas the UK economy is run by loonies, it

cant even feed its population without importing

grub. When this Ponzi scheme starts to lean over,

the pound won't buy you a f,,, tong in the market.

You've done a great job of summarising the mess without offering any solutions.

Really the OP states  he was  a mechanic ,  a good quality  working class  man he would know where to start,

    SCRAP IT ,

Scrap what exactly? Care to elaborate?

 

As you are a self confessed "alien in LOS" who has "burned his bridges", I'd be interested in your solution. Sure it will have the UK's best interests at heart 😉

So get on with it, I say, and stop blaming everyone else.

For what? Securing our escape...? I can't see any of the people you believe you're just ridiculed getting the hump over that! 😑

come week of 14th January a solution may surface

unless TM changes  her mind again may-deal is up for voting

if it flies - thats the way then -

 

next step will be to ensure that the process following 29th March is meaningful

in my view that means getting rid of TM asap

but alas, if may-deal flies politicians will be inclined to stay with her

so she will be in good position to crap down after 29 March negotiations

 

 

may-deal voted down?

no-deal Brexit then me thinks

 

----

alternatively parliament gets rid of TM asap,

as soon as they are back after xmas,

take charge - debate the issue - synthesize what they want - and do it

including consulting with EU

A chalk and cheese argument.

 

You cannot compare life and death with politics.

 

 

What would you like - the best of 3 at every general election just because you couldn't trust (didn't like) the first result.

Are you really trying to tell people that general elections and leaving the EU are not chalk and cheese?

Leaving the EU will be a life changing event for many and only the emotionally paranoid would not recognise the need in the light of better understanding to reconfirm that change, but you probably think it would be better for students to take the exam before they do the course.

   Indeed  , our  democratically   elected Prime Minister , 

  will state , that  it is not in the best public  interests , that our democratically elected, incompetent Parliamentary members should be given the  vote on such  an important decision.

.

   Therefore , Mister  Speaker , i  am morally bound , in the best interests , of the people of Britain,

         to humbly  apply , for another  extension, on the previous  extensions ,  Merci, mon ami .
