The people of the UK voted to leave - that is done and dusted, there possibly be scope for how we leave

If it were ‘done and dusted’, this whole topic would not exist.

Have you read anywhere exactly how much is genuinely 'owed' to the eu?

 

From the beginning, it has been nothing other than 'made up' numbers!

Numbers that the British Government agreed to.

Which raises the question Brexit with no deal or no Brexit?

 

 

 

OK, not that interested in Brexit, but I've had a little think about it.  Possibly wrong but:

 

The EU will not budge.

 

For Parliament, "Deal" is out the door.

 

The public know that staying in means, in terms of "the pound in their pocket/food on the table/roof over their heads".........normal.

 

They have become inured to the idea that "No Deal" equals Doom.

 

So Parliament has the job, in the eyes of the public, of choosing between Catastrophe or Safe.

 

That shouldn't be too difficult.

I hope you are! What do you expect Junker/Tusk to do? Re-start the NI troubles? And what hope is there for a "smooth transition"? And since any form of brexit is bad for us why do we still persist with silly nonsense?

Ever succeeded in persuading a grumpy old git to change his mind about anything? You might get better odds in persuading one to move from a dumbphone to a smartphone than getting him to review Brexit.

No they haven’t. Only Theresa May has in her “my-deal-or-no-deal”. That agreement has been kicked out twice.

Theresa May heads the Government.

 

It’s Parliament she’s having trouble with (thanks to members of her own party).

 

I trust we don’t need to re-run the ‘Government for beginners’ course again.

Parliament has the job to deliver on the Withdrawal Act they have already passed into law.
Maybe they can improve our Exit with a deal but they must try harder than Theresa’s surrender to the EU.

Or they can envoke parliamentary sovereignty and do something else.

Can not even find the wording for the motion that was defeated, but as I understand it is not enforceable, certainly not a "meaningful" vote...

You need to re-run the actual situation to help yourself understand:
She’s a PM running her own duplicitous Remain agenda. Her ‘Government’ fortunately includes the ERG, CON rebels and DUP members, who don’t agree with her ‘deal’, hence her defeats.

Better write a new module for your ‘Government in Action Course’

They’ve tried but can’t get a majority to steam roller their own way through the Withdrawal Act, which they all previously voted on and passed by majority.

“Would you like a beer that’s the most delicious you’ll ever taste?”
“Yes please”
“Ok but it is £12 a pint”
“In that case I’ve changed my mind”
“Not possible sorry”
“But I didn’t know the cost”
“Too late now”
“And it looks horrible”
“Just hold your nose and drink it”
