Sadly, I'm too lazy to crawl back through postings, but I was not alone in saying about the referendum result, that UK should immediately stop all payments to EU, revert to WTO and close the borders.  It would have been chaotic for a wee while, but no worse than the last 3 years of total shambles and uncertainty.

I don't like "I told you so..." but in this case, I did....

"Close the borders". Including the Northern Irish border presumably. "Chaotic for a wee while". .....And the Hard Brexiteers don't like their ideas being called stupid!

UK and Ireland rubbed along ok, from the trading point of view.  Peoples views of the Irish border are deeply coloured by the "troubles",  which are basically settled now.  We've had uncertainty and a lack of leadership for the last 2 years, but we now have a chance of a new start.  No-one likes to called "stupid" - you included  😉

The very idea that overthrowing the Good Friday Agreement with re-establishment of the N-Ireland-Ireland border, well, even most Hard Brexiteers are not so stupid as to push that one right now.

Of course no one "wants" that to happen as a stand alone decision , But , it may have to happen in the course of the UK leaving the E.U

Not much more she can other than to threaten Tory MP's with having the whip removed and being deselected and hope a few Labour MP's defy Corbyn and vote for her deal, that is if the Speaker allows he motion to be debated and voted on.

Today the Tory Parties Darkest Hour.

 

Quote

French journalist Bénédicte Paviot says "once again reality surpasses fiction".

"Are we witnessing the last days not just of the prime minister but also of the Conservative party?" she asks.

I am sure there will be a another referendum, and when it is overturned brexiteers will be saying it was not a true reflection of the peoples opinion because they did not recognize the referendum's legality so did not vote.😂

What if they voted out again?
