Maybe TM will be seducing JC at number 10...

There is a parliamentary majority against Hard Brexit. If Hard Brexit passes it will hang around Corbyn's neck.

It is the EU legislation that specifies the date.

 

Their 2 year deadline from the notification.

 

You hit it on the head, it is up to the 27 nations (not the UK or even EU parliament) to grant an extension of Article 50 if TM asks for it, and I am unsure if she has the mandate to request it, and it requires all 27 countries to agree, every country will have demands, Spain wants Gibraltar, France wants unrestricted fishing rights in UK waters, Ireland no boarder,  Poland unrestricted travel/work in UK.

 

TM has more chance of Getting JC and all his MP's voting for her deal....

Since the Hard Brexiteers can muster less than 100, she doesn't need all of Labour's MPs. As we head for the end, expect the Hard Brexiteer crew here to increasingly freak out.

You are trying to play that broken record again.

 

17.4 of 66 million = 26.4%

 

As pointed out not everybody voted for the same reasons or for the same "Brexit", we are nearly 3 years down the line and it is clear that those who still want a brexit can not agree on what they want.

 

Vote Leave can not deliver on their promise of something for nothing, time to call it a day... 

Why would anyone want to use this figure of "17.4 of 66 million = 26.4%" when it also includes people like babies, young children and teenagers under the age of 18. There are about 20 million of the population that are illegible to vote. Would it not be less confusing if you just used the appropiate figures of the actual voters.

As most MP's are against Brexit they are likely to take control and do the sensible thing, revoke article 50, which does not need EU approval, then suggest they may in the next parliament after thinking it out properly put it to another referendum.

Brexiteer mind reader. 

You certainly think you are, given how often the word appears in your posts.

it is you Brexiteers that keep quoting 17.4, just like the misleading £350million on the side of a bus, even still I did include the disenfranchised and those who could not or did not vote, it is more correct than much of what Vote Leave said in the referendum campaign, even their election expenses were fraudulent.

It can only get better... unless we go for a Hard Brexit by choice or default.

17.4 million is not misleading, it is the actual voters that voted leave, whilst your figure is totally meaningless. It shows nothing, only what you want it to show.

Bring the bus out when you're desperate, do you believe everything you read on side of buses, I know I don't. We have had nothing but nearly 3 years of project fear, blatant lies from the remain side, so I wouldn't get too rightious or even blinkered.

I am not getting desperate...

 

I just pointing out misleading propaganda, why not quote 51.8% instead of 17.4million? not exactly an other whelming majority, why not just say to the 48.2% "go to hell, we won". because in reality that is what brexiteers are saying.

But there was misleading propaganda from both sides, surely you must at least agree with me on that, but be under no illusion most people knew what they were voting for, whether leaver or remainer.

I would also have no problem using 51.8% as opposed to 17.4 million, both figures show a true reflection on the result, also I would have no problem in saying 1.3 million more of the electorate voted to leave, they all are figures that people can relate to. I suppose if you think that 1.3 million is not an overall majority, that is up to you.
