Maybe it is the fault of the FPTP system in the UK, but when there is no willingness to reach compromises in politics you end up with a very divided society and all the conflict it brings.

Would not be my choice.

I agree, but how are you going to get the big two political parties agreeing to a PR voting system when FPTP favours both of them, with PR UKIP would have amassed about 60 seats in Parliament, can you imagine what a difference that would have made to brexit, that is assuming that the Tories would have formed a coalition with them of course.

Compared with the spivs and con(wo)men of the Monster Raving Tories, sounds fine to me.

Davis for me, but TBH the only person close to emulating Maggie (the sort of character desperately needed) is the one they (Parliamentarians) call Doris Karloff😊

Extend Article 50. Then send Johnson, Gove, Raab and Rees-Mogg over to Brussels to put up or shut up. When they return to the UK empty-handed, the sensible people can kick them to the curb once and for all and work from there.

Of course it won't happen, but how good it would be to see them unmasked as the charlatans they are.

I don't think extending article 50 is as simple as it seems, I believe all of the other 27 countries of the EU have to agree to the UKs request, and like another referendum, time is running out.

According to the recent ECJ ruling, it can be done unilaterally.

I think you are meaning cancelling art 50, to the best of my knowledge delaying it requires all 27 countries.

1. Cancel +

2. A50 again 

= Extension / Delaying

 

(And neither 1. nor 2. would require consent from the other 27.)
