UK PM candidate Raab says suspending parliament remains a Brexit option

Recommended Posts

Bit ironic that the area most likely to significantly benefit from leaving the EU, voted to remain.

The deprived areas, other than NI, should be quite happy to be further deprived, after all they knew what they were voting for.

 

That would see Wales stripped of £2.3bn over the six years from 2021, with other big losses in the southwest (£1bn), the northeast (£480m), Northern Ireland (£230m) and the West Midlands (£225m).

 

In stark contrast, London would gain a staggering £19bn over six years, with the southeast (£1.2bn), Scotland (£795m) and the east of England (£583m) also set to benefit.

The figures are a consequence of the government withdrawing almost all domestic economic development funds for the regions since 2010 – while capital spending is earmarked towards the south.

Please show me where the evidence this red bus made people vote for Brexit. I would suggest that it is nonsense and just an excuse by remainers to feel justified that 'we are all wrong'.

When people voted to leave did they give any thought to the Belfast agreement or the peoples of Gibraltar and Scotland, of course not, and with 85% of the electorate in England, whatever England wanted  the UK would get.

More importantly when people voted to leave did they give any thought to where the money was going to come from, of course not, the state will provide.

The country was already in the grips of austerity and the vote to leave opened up a bottomless pit that money has just been thrown into. TM kicked it off with a extremely expensive and unnecessary court case, but she couldn't pay for the elderly, passed that over to local councils.

Do you really think it is "right" that money is thrown at brexit from all directions while virtually every essential service in the country is at crisis point?

Of course they did. As regards to the Belfast agreement and the border with the Irish republic. Please note, that NOW the Bureaucrats in Brussels are contemplating useing technology to facilitate the transport of goods from the Irish republic. Yet only a couple of months ago they were stating that no technology existed, when this was suggested by the Brexiteers.

 

Brexit means a hard border in Ireland, fact of international law, it has always been a question of how to disguise it. Brexiteers have always claimed they wanted to close the borders to the UK.

Note that you failed to comment

Not true. The pre-referendum call was to "Take back control of our borders." not close them.

 You are so wrong on many points. You state Briexit means a hard boarder, yet strangely after many months of denying it’s possibility, the Bureaucrats in Brussels are now admitting that the technology does in fact exist.

 And again Brexiteers have never championed the proposal to close the boarder,and neither did the government of the Irish republic, until they were lent on by The E.u. All you have to do,is look at the discussion in the Irish Parliament, regarding this point,it’s on YouTube 

And finally I do not agree that money should be thrown on trying to overturn the Democratic vote of the British people, in their decision to leave this so called u ion.

You can try and dress it up any way you want. When the Belfast agreement was signed both sides of the borders were citizens of the EU, post brexit those in the north with a UK passport will become foreign nationals as far as the south is concerned, hardly in the spirit of the Agreement. Of course to brexiteers, nothing more than an irritating technicality.

Little wonder there has been a surge in applications for Irish passports, resolution will come with the reunification.

Your response on the money highlights how little respect the brexiteers have for the essential services, brexit means brexit whatever the cost.

Selective memory. The UK has always had control of the borders, nothing to take back.

The rhetoric was always aimed at closing the borders to all immigrants, both Non EU and EU and then trying to argue the toss over who should be allowed in.

Post brexit, those from the ROI would effectively become EU immigrants, all part and parcel of the rhetoric.

  You will find that the vast majority of those in the north, who support the U.K remaining in the E.u. are already in possession of a Irish Passport. As they would prefer to be Irish citizens rather than British. So no change there.

Tragically what Brexit (and Trump) in the Us has highlighted is how easy large portions of the working class can be manipulated by simplistic tropes and sloganeerings all wrapped up in the flag to advance the interests of the ruling class. But it was ever thus - a hundred years ago they would be marching proudly to their slaughter to the killing fields of the Somme fighting a pointless war against their working-class German comrades when they should have united and turned their guns on the warring related European Royal families. As Oscar Wilde said patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel....

it seems britain is still at war,i cannot recall the name of the brexiteer on here a while back but he was stating the EU migrants were to blame for all the stabbings in his beloved london,what a liar,anyway another 2 within 15 minutes of each other to add to the list today.

Two London teens killed within 15 minutes of each other - BBC News.html
