I forget nothing - a lot of the Tory majority piles up uselessly in southern seats. SNP will probably take Scotland again and reverse the Tory gains there. Johnson's opportunism will mean there can be no deal with Farage and the Brexit Party will stymie any hopes of a Tory breakthrough in northern Leave seats. 

If Boris pushes a deal through ( essentially May's) then it would not benefit Farage one bit to oppose the Tories in a General Election.

The Brexit party has no hope of winning so would simply be a spoiler , that could let in a Corbyn government or a Remain coalition , Brexit would be no more.

Many seats in the HoC are won with less than 2% majority and that is acceptable by the public. Why should the referendum be any different?

A temporary seat in the HoC is of a complete different magnitude as a for a long time giving consequences, like a membership of an Union of States.  Same for a split of the UK in .. Mercia, Sussex, Northumbria, etc.

Well that's democracy Lib/Dem style for you.

 

Remember that all the MPs are give a pill after they are elected which makes them smarted and more clever than the whole population of the UK.

 

IMHO there should be a general election asap but who is stopping it? About 400 people in the HoC who fear, and quite rightly so, that their gravy train will fall of the tracks.

Thats one of the worst aspects of this whole sorry mess , the re emergence of the Lib Dems , pointless bunch of protest mongers.

I think that Boris will just make extravagant claims as to his popularity, successes, etc.  Just like Trump!  I am afraid that the conservatives will take a hell of a beating in the next election.

 

I do have one question.  How come there were multiple referendums on Brexit but once it was passed by a small majority there can not be any new referendum on the subject?

Because Brexit fundamentalists fear democracy. 

They managed to win the last one using lies and deceit but dont believe they can win the next one. Polls show they would lose.

3 most likely options are...

 

1. Challenge/test the law in the courts. Exit the EU while it's going through the process.

2. Let Britain veto it's own request for an extension. 

3. Convince one of the other member states to veto the request by threatening to become a menace in the European Parliament (veto everything, regularly demonstrate and ignore protocol etc.). The Brexit party can help with this.

 

Quite a few other options as well. This is far from over but the government are keeping quiet on which option they will take to avoid Parliament plotting against it. Good Luck Boris, together, the people and the government can overcome this colluding, traitorous Parliament,

 

So when he and his cronies were voting against the government they were being loyal

citizens. He and his gang of self serving con men brought down May and are now crying

like babies because they too cannot command a majority in parliament to pass their

proposals.

 

Johnson is an appropriate slang word for a male organ.

Do not forget that our FPTP voting system is very antiquated and out of date.

Off to the Supreme Court now...

Have to queue behind Gina Miller and John Major

Quote

Boris Johnson’s suspension of the UK Parliament is unlawful, Scotland’s highest civil court has ruled.

A panel of three judges at the Court of Session found in favour of a cross-party group of politicians who were challenging the prime minister's move.

The judges said the PM was attempting to prevent Parliament holding the government to account ahead of Brexit.
