What options are left for British PM Johnson on Brexit?

If a referendum is binding then it should only be if it has a clear majority, and 2% is no way a clear majority.

According to the rules of the referendum it was more than enough.

In my opinion, it is time to bring on the 'unmentionable'.

 

I know that a second referendum is tantamount to heresy for many people, but I believe that the British public at all levels of society are far better informed as to  the ramifications of Brexit now, than they where back in 2016.

 

Personally, I cannot see a single argument in favour of Brexit. I couldn't back then and I my opinion has been reinforced by the revelations since the referendum. And I'm sure there are many thousands of others are now also having second thoughts.

 

It's time that the British public had their say.

 

 

You are not alone in your thinking.

I blame Corbyn. He has not articulated ANY policy. If he would come out and SAY what his parties policy is (2nd Ref or whatever) but all he does is say for 2 years "we want an election" then "we don't want an election" when offered one.

I have to admit I like this option.

 

1. Send the first surrender letter that the cowards in Parliament forced us to send.

2. Immediately follow up with a second letter saying the first letter was just a friendly gag and is superseded by the second letter which states we do not want an extension, and therefore if they approve any extension then our MEP's will obstruct the functioning of the European Parliament in every way possible until we finally leave.

3. We can concurrently test this surrender bill in the courts whilst lobbying Poland, Hungary etc. to veto the extension, as well as instructing our own MEP's to veto the extension on Britain's behalf.

 

That should put the cat amongst the pigeons.

Nobody voted to Leave with a deal or without a deal.

 

There were only 2 options, Leave or Remain. Leaving with no deal is leaving, is it not? If it is not leaving, please tell me what it is.

It is financial suicide, that's what it is.

Emily Thornbury has made it very clear, they would go to Brussels to secure the best possible deal for the UK then return back to the UK and vote againgst it, how much clarity do you need.

I believe get out at any cost and start again, like a marriage too much fear of the unknown, the time has come to go

 

15 yrs ago, to get out of an eighteen month marriage, in an overseas country, I had to let go 90% of my world wide assets, a  very very substantial sum, many said madness, I even wondered, but today one of the best decisions of my life

 

The system is unfortunately wrong two thirds majority should be required for major constitutional changes then this mess would not happen

Yes, but the rules need to be set before the referendum, you cannot say 50/50 and then change to 2/3 after the result comes in at 52/48.

 

I'd certainly support a 2/3 majority for rejoining after we've left though.

MPs look to bring back May's Brexit deal with vote on referendum 
Cross-party majority moving closer as more current and ex-Tories open to idea, source says

 

more...

This is a far better compromise solution:

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/group-of-cross-party-mps-launch-bid-to-reach-compromise-brexit-deal/ar-AAH5g2g?li=BBoPWjQ&ocid=OIE9HP

 

See Rory Stewart quote:

“If we were to go for a no-deal Brexit, we would have about half the country very angry and alienated. They would feel about no-deal Brexit the way that many of the people I’ve seen recently in the north-east feel about Mrs Thatcher,” he said.

 

“On the other side, if we want for a full remain through a second referendum, you would have about half the country feeling incredibly alienated, angry and tricked.”

 

-----------------------------------------------------------

 

Brits have a 'long-standing and mature reputation' for reaching a consensus agreement and, as I hope Johnson told Arlene Foster, the DUP must be willing to accept a viable compromise regarding the Irish backstop.

Brino is a form of remain. There is only one form of leave.

 

"depart from, go away from, go from, withdraw from, retire from, take oneself off from, exit from, take one's leave of, pull out of, quit, be gone from, decamp from, disappear from, abandon, vacate, absent oneself from, evacuate"

 

Nowhere there does it say leave one foot in the door.

Nobody voted for no deal.

Farage, Gove Johnson were all at pains to claim we would be leaving with a deal.

It was only after the referendum that the Brexit fundamentalists started claiming everyone had voted for no deal.
