Oh for f- (sorry, mod).

We HAVE to leave. So now let us take our leave on the friendliest terms possible and take it from there.

Parliament - stop f- (sorry mods, again) squabbling and agree to SOMETHING! Just go with the bloody deal and stop messing about. Not only is this Brexit draining our economy, it is draining the life force from all of us.

Maybe you should arm yourself with a clove of garlic and a crucifix.

I wish to remain. But 'Leave' won the vote and are steadfast. Neither side can just urinate all over the other. We MUST seek a compromise.

The truth is no longer relevant in the post-fact world.  You are fighting the last war, relying on facts and logic.  In the Facebook era, that is like cavalry in the Somme.

I made sure my kids did their Duke of Edinburgh award, as well as their exams; I hope they can shoplift, and I am sorry neither took to boxing, as I am not sure which skills they will need post-Brexit.

But the sensible compromises - some sort of Norway + or - - were all thrown out with the bathwater in the early days after the referendum.

 

Indeed, some on the remain side thought TM was still a closet remainer and was deliberately pursuing a completely impractical form of leave so it would get thrown out eventually. But, no, she was just so stupid that she ran with it and then nothing but the hardest of brexit became acceptable.

 

Do you see any compromise that might be acceptable ?

More like a busted flush, IMO. What could happen is for johnson to get a deal worse than May's and  persuade parliament it's the best he can get, and if they want to leave, vote for it. And when the tories win the GE they'll have the power base on their side for future negotiations with the EU. 

 

IMO, parliament hasn't got the appetite to reject yet another deal, as they're probably as sick to the gills with brexit as I am.

Actually it is the no-deal Brexit tribe that want to trash any agreement.

Don't agree for the obvious reason that a deal could well be passed by parliament. Whether that's true or not is irrelevant, but it's nearer reality than the above statement.

One thing most of us can agree on this uncertainty is damaging to the UK and our economy.

 

An there is only one thing Boris can legally do that would not require him requesting another extension. 

 

And The EU Parliament, EU Member States, EU Bureaucrats, Westminster or any other UK legislative body including his cabinet or the Queen, can stop, refuse to accept or reverse.

 

That is to Revoke Article 50, Parliament could sake him but they are going to anyway.

Dust off May's deal and market it to the great unwashed as a radical new breakthrough. How many of them will have read it in the first place?

You could also ask how many of them read the Treaty of rome in the first place?
