How about we leave with the deal that the Brexit campaigners promised in the referendum.  Of course they cannot deliver that and so we are left with the utter shambles that we have.  I am yet to meet a Brexiteer that voted to leave with no deal because they were promised a deal and an easy to achieve one at that.

There was nothing on the ballet paper about a deal. It was Leave or Remain. Leave clearly meant leaving the single market and customs union. Leave won, so if the EU and UK can't reach a deal then No Deal it is.

 

The only deal the EU will agree to is so bad for the UK that Leavers and Remain are united in rejecting it.

Exactly my point.  Why did the leave campaigners promise us a deal that would have been good for the UK when they couldn't deliver it.  The EU haven't changed their position on Brexit, they have been consistent from day one.  The people voted leave because of what the Brexiteers told them.

you are getting confused, we haven't actually started to negotiate a trade deal yet, that comes next

 

The EU will stop at nothing to prevent us leaving - they do not want an independent UK competing against them because they no they will lose, and when others see how well the UK is doing they will want the same

 

The EU is sinking fast simply because they overstepped going from a trade block to a military and political empire - they are power mongers, it is the way Europe has been for centuries

 

we want out

You assume what leave "clearly" meant. To some it may have meant 350 mil a week to the NHS, to others it may have meant less imposed regulations. The leavers had a meeting last year and couldn't come up with a statement they all agreed with so gave no statement. However we leave, it will not only be remainers who are dissapointed with the result.

There wasn’t any deal promised by Brexit campaigners.
Possible post exit arrangement discussions gave the idea of a hard or soft Brexit. It was started by Remainers in autumn 2016 when they rallied after the shock of losing. Theresa’s Deal only appeared middle of last year, after she checked it with Merkel. A deal is a Remainer ploy to stay tied to the EU.

Could it be that TM is playing a smart game of poker  ?

 

1/ Why would the PM insist on such a lousy deal when all of her own party are urging her to rethink ? It could be that she made this deal knowing full well that it would be unacceptable .

 

2/ Why has she and her colleagues been seeking multiple future global trade deals ?

 

3/ " Running down the clock " to leave just 2 options on the table which will result in a No Deal EU exit and that is what I think she is planning .

 

4/ However , even if the " Back Stop " was resolved there are other issues that are unpalatable to the Brexiteers and would make the UK an EU colony .  

 

5/ Why are there so many MPs going against the wishes of their electors ? Could there be a conflict of interests ?

 

6/ When the referendum was made the choice was stay or leave .  No mention of leaving the EU with a host of provisos . In fact the 39 billion pounds savings by leaving the EU was never denied and the weekly 300 million pounds saving was projected to the much needy NHS .

You wouldn't think that three simple words on a ballot paper could leave so much open to interpretation would you?

There was no interpretation of those 3 words that was necessary for the referendum...................... it's the debacle that followed where interpretation caused the fork up.

Whether a person is for or against Brexit doesn't really matter at this point; crashing out of the EU without some agreement in place is irresponsible madness. It is the equivalent of moving out of one's flat without another place to live.

 

Never before have I seen a country so utterly determined to shoot itself in the crotch.

 

 

These MPs are a poor lot

 

About 1% worth the salary

 

Far far better standard of debate in The Lords.

 

The lower house is ripe for a major conflagration. Time for Sinn Fein?

"It was never their job to ‘help’ the UK out of the mess the UK got itself into"

 

Have you ever thought for one minute by not helping the UK, the EU are not helping themselves, is it a case of the EU cutting their nose off to spite their face. Make no mistake the EU desperately  wants a deal, it is getting to the stage of who blinks first, if Mrs May had won last night there was a good chance of a 'no deal' being taken off the table. A no deal is the only bargaining tool we have left, take that off the table we may all just lay down and get a good kicking. 

If MPs want the best for our country, they are certainly going the wrong way about it.

 

BS. No deal is a busted flush

 

The EU are not idiots

So you're saying that the EU does not want deal, of course they want a deal, Europe is collapsing around them, going into recession and they don't want a deal. Keep flying their flag grouse, you may need it to wipe the egg off your face.
