No problem, throw out Johnson at the beginning of September with a vote of no confidence, install a new PM within 14 days and revoke Article 50.

 

 

Dream on...... calling an election would scupper that idea.

Not sure if he can once he's lost the vote of no confidence, under the present law other MPs are entitled to try to form a government within 14 days. The incumbent PM is not supposed to take any action committing his successor. Could be a case for the courts.

 

 

Indeed, it just gets messier and messier.

 

Doesn't bode well for the future with every minority seeking legal recourse to overturn decisions they don't like.

Its the uncertainty contributing to the sterling decline. When brexit is finally declared the uncertainty will end and the pound should start to rise again as sure as the Euro will decline.

The £ is now virtually on a par with the Euro, when I went to visit a friend in Amsterdam I got 1 for 1, is this the famous Boris Bounce?

We have finally joined the Euro, and I have to register my gratitude to all the Brexiteers here, congratulations lads, you finally did it.

 

I'm sure that's not the last of the plans you have to destroy the UK economy, how about a no deal Brexit that should do it. 

 

Whatever you do Donald want's you to promise that you keep tax avoidance for the rich and his big tech companies, no problem, the ordinary Brexiteer will be only too happy to oblige.

A majority who voted , voted to LEAVE the EU. The UK liberal elites have decided otherwise. They enjoy and admire the EU corruptocracy.  Mrs May was an inept and gutless  PM who was in fact a Remainer in Brexit clothing. Remainers have tried every trick before, during and since the Referendum to sabotage LEAVE. Hence the current situation.BUT now we have someone as PM determined to deliver the Referendum result. The EU is a failing economic model. The euro is built on sand as europhiles will discover post Brexit. Sure it is difficult currently but not as difficult as our liberal fascist media would have us believe.  In fact the UK is doing very well economically in terms of employment, wages and inward investment. France, Germany, Italy, Spain etc are not the elysium they pretend to be. 

 

So. Hold on to your hats folks. Charlemagne, Napoleon, Hitler and Stalin and now the EU have tried to suppress national identity. They failed and in turn the EU Politbureau will go the same way.

 

 

 

 

Great first post.

So a Ponzi is fair too? Somebody promises that everybody becomes super rich and at the end only few become rich because everything was a huge lie. But the people decided (democratic) that they give the money. Or the grandma who was cheated by a fake policeman. But she decided to give him her money from her free will. All could find in the internet that they will be cheated but everything sounds so real, so they believe everything. Same as the Brexiteers. 

Can you repeat in plain English? After three readings I still do not understand your point.

Sorry, I am a non native English speaker, can´t write it better. Try it a fourth time. Others understand it.

Yes, they promised - including a health system with a lot of money.

If I were a Remainer, I would probably be demanding a link to substantiate that fact. I'll just take it as your mistaken opinion. As far as the health system goes, we invented one seventy years ago. It has lots of money and the government donated about 130 Billion pounds last year.

The Brexit claim for Leaving was not that it would give us riches or a health system, but that some of the money we waste in contributions to the EU could be spent on our increasingly expensive NHS.

That's what we voted for 3 years ago.

The problem is, that the Brexiteers always use wrong numbers.
