Agreed. The Tories have now become the looney Tories and labour under Corbyn have remained looney labour had an opportunity to appeal to the majority by ditching Corbyn and supporting a second referendum. So far they have not taken that opportunity so the Brexit nutcases are running around like lemmings following Farage. No wonder the UK is now the laughing stock of the world .

What Churchill described as 'snatching defeat from the jaws of victory', though perhaps Corbyn fears the same sort of meltdown that is about to afflict the Tories- to side with one wing is to lose the other.  Brexit could be the undoing of both major parties.

It could indeed and that should be cause for concern for the nation. It could open up the window of opportunity for racists like Farage and/or others purely taking the opportunity with the main long term intent on wrecking the UK's competitiveness or attraction as a moderate and peaceful society.

Fair enough, but why? Parliament has already said that they will not countenance a 'No Deal', so how is the deadlock broken, then? In the real world, that is?

Her successor - whoever - won't be able to square the several circles any more than she could.

 

Shooting at feet will recommence 8 June. Following the Biblical injunction: Let she who is without shin cast the first bone.

If she had done what the majority of the country wanted and left on the 29th of March, as she said over a hundred times, with a WTO deal, she would still be in a job

MPs including her own party voted against it.

Not her fault.

What the country wants is not decided by Hard Brexiteer spin.

Only a hard-core right-wing rump in parliament and in the Conservative Party favour a no deal Brexit. It won't happen.

We all can only hope that you are correct.

The right wing extremists cannot prevail.

Since when is that her decision and what’s “a WTO deal” anyway?

Don't you think he will get the gig, then? If not, who is your money on?

It does seem that Boris is a shoe in for the job. But i have a question. If Boris is the self-serving, unprincipled man that he appears to be, why would he put himself up for the job now; given the stalemate there is in Parliament and with the EU not budging? Would a man with his ego let himself in for faffing around for 6 months, following a similar course to May, in all likelihood that nothing changes and he gets booted out as another failure PM? 

 

I suspect he (or more likely his advisers) have a dramatic change of plan in mind, otherwise I don't think he'd go for the top job right now.

Just listened to her crappy resignation speech and her desperate attempts to leave with her head held high.

Sorry, but no. Left or Right wing as one may be, pro-Brexit or Remainer. She was simply sh!te and an abject failure in any high office. She deserves to be kicked out like a dog in the night and good riddance.

That is what having the right to ones own opinion is .  You have yours and I and others have ours. No need for a singular implied reply. Unless it was intend as a baiting response ?

But you think it's fine to label those who oppose your view as nutcases, morons etc.?
