(Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May could indicate in a statement later that another defeat for her Brexit deal could mean a general election, Channel 4's political editor Gary Gibbon said on Wednesday.

 

"There's speculation that (May) could spell out that defeat for her deal next week could mean a general election," he said in a blog post. "Speculation too that Mrs May will, in an attempt to win Brexiteer votes, promise that she doesn't intend to hang around as leader of the Tories (Conservatives) and prime minister much longer."

Really. all the newspapers, news reports and the constant barrage from the media is all about Brexit. Same with social media. Just look at the threads in here over the last 3 years.

 

 

Again I disagree.

I suggest you get out more and speak to more diverse people.

 

I will stick by my claim that a GE is needed to break this stalemate.

 

Away with your suggestion I should speak to more diverse people.

 

I spoke face to face with hundreds of people, who just happened to be flesh and blood individuals with a vote to cast and skin in the game.

 

Your online experiences are, I am sure, a fulfilling part of your day.

 

However, if there is another election I shall take the opportunity to once again join the election campaign and speak face to face with even more voters.

 

Feel free to battle my face to face efforts by bashing the keyboard, you might have a message people wish to hear.

  I can't wait to hear what a 'true remainer' looks like. Is it this?

Close, but no cigar. My mouth isn't that big. Big mouths are the preserve of Brexiteers. Goes with the small brains.

The country's a week away from its most important decision since September 1939 and all posters are doing is engaging in childish personal vendettas. 

I don't see how an election will resolve Brexit. Let's have a debate broadcast on every TV channel for 5 days in a row between advocates and dissenters of Brexit. Advocates must have a clear cut plan that is open to debate. After that a referendum as to stay according to the Brexiteers' plan or call the whole thing off and imprison Cameron for life for wasting people's time.

I think you were likely correct in your findings during the last election. The problems discussed at doorstep level remain burning issues that to date remain unresolved. However , you comments were based upon the findings during the last election. The mood and voice on the doorstep may well include the same findings as brexit dates were set and moving forward. However since then Brexit has become a shambles that is paramount in the UK people and a key decision maker if unresolved, if another election is held. Campaigning at street level will be different. Trust has been lost by this government and the opposition. Unless resolved Brexit will  headline any campaigning at an election. As they say a week is a long time in politics. Perhaps we should change that to a day is a long time in brexit politics.

I agree people are absolutely concerned over the shambles Brexit has become

 

How anyone concludes that will result in more support for more Brexit is a mystery.

 

People are most concerned with what impacts them and their families.

 

Remainers and Leavers look at Brexit and see a seething pile of chaos.

 

More chaos is not a vote winner.

 

Not when you have skin in the game.
