Equally  you will have to admit there is no legal obstacle to us not leaving the EU  If the government rescind art 50 before 29/3 the will face no legal consequences, though there may be political ones..

 

If, however they leave without a deal, they will have broken the GFA which is legal obligation.

 

It will be interesting to see what they chose.

Started to reply, and then realised I couldn't be bothered with such nonsense.

 

But I do agree with the last para.  It will be v. interesting to see how our MPs' vote.

Of course there is no legal reason not to leave the EU, but many might say that it may be curtains for both political parties should they choose to go down that route.

But when we have remainer Kinnock being economical with the truth with D Raab it just proves who has the most savvy. Kinnock looked a fool.

Yet in a general election even a majority of 1 vote (after recounts) is a winning vote.

 

Would you whine about that too?

At this point in time both parties are going to take a hammering what ever they do now...

Bill, "whine" is beneath you. So is joining in the war of slogans - they are both as bad as each other.

'So where the bloody hell do we go next' is a far more important matter. How do we keep the UK intact? How do we disappoint the least number of people possible in a polarised society?

 

Mate, rise above it and let them fling their posters, banners and insults at one another. Neither side is listening to the other and all it does is spoil your day....

Sorry about that.

 

I have lost the bookmark for the good news pages.

 

Sadly they have been doing it for the last 2 1/2 years and show no signs of stopping yet. When Brexit goes through in whatever form I think that it will get a lot worse that it is now and that is saying something.

 

At this point I don't think that anybody has the faintest idea of what will happen after 30th March.

 

The PM has her plan, many Tory MPs have another plan, JC and the Labour party yet another, the Lib/Dems and other hopeless parties have their own plans, the SNP under Sturgeon are plotting liberation from the English, (if they get it they won't be able to do much with it), the EU commission have their own plans.

 

I have the feeling that Germany and one or two other countries will still want to trade with the UK despite the EU commissioners.

 

This is becoming the biggest c**k up since the Grand old Duke of York marched his men to the top of the hill and down again.

Negative politics again.

 

Last time we had Liberal Government we had an Empire, a hundred years of Tory and Labour Governments, and what are we left with?

A Disunited Kingdom.

Not sure the point you are making here, if you are saying that the reason the Liberals have not been in power for 1 hundred years is because they don't appeal to the public, I agree. 

And the Lib Dems were the party of remain dispite the majority of the country voting leave, on that basis alone why do you think they were not more popular than they were. The only conclusion I can see is that whilst the country voted to leave, the lib dems were touting to remain, British voters don't like the 'Mother knows best' approach.

A deliberate c**k up IMO.

what they chose?

 

seems to me that no-deal Brexit is a too tall call in parliament - a loser

revoking A50? also, a pretty tall call - me thinks

 

what is left? the may-deal in the Westminster litter repository - dust off - approve

 

this is what is available to and under control of the UK leadership

---

now and then water turns into wine,  not often though

 

EU could open the backstop issue

EU could agree to A50 prolongation if UK so requests

Apparently UKIP Mark 2, according to some of the Brexiteer nutters here.

European elections: Anti-EU populists set to win enough seats to gain influence and ‘paralyse’ bloc

The growth of anti-EU parties in the European Parliament elections in May could “paralyse” the bloc in a range of policy areas, a stark report seen by The Independent has warned.

Nationalist, eurosceptic, and far-right parties could bring about a “qualitative change” in the union after winning a third of seats, according to the European Council on Foreign Relations, a pro-EU think tank.
