UK PM Johnson agrees 'great' new Brexit deal with EU

Breaking Labour will vote this deal if there is a confirmatory referendum - this deal vs Remain on the ballot paper. 

Don't we all think, enough's enough? As the people have already demonstrated, they know sod all about what's best for Britain - and whatever their faults it's our sovereign parliament who are elected to decide that, not the population. 

 

Providing Labour MPs are granted a 'free' vote, IMO, the deal would pass through.

Well the UK exchange rate just went up......🥳

Strange then that Brexit had apparently nothing to do with the pound collapse 🤔

The difference is Boris gets to be PM first, then all of a sudden the deal is totally agreeable. 

Because he's a male might be a consideration, also. While the UK is supposed to be PC in regard to the sexes, I doubt parliament's old boys network abide by that. More so, because May tried to emulate Thatcher - which probably led to her demise.

Eton boys , strange handshakes and biscuit parties and burning 50 quid notes in front of homeless people for a larf. St Theresa wouldn't know or approve of any of that.

At long last. And tell the DUP to go and stuff themselves, if they freaking don't like it. IMO, enough Labour MPs and LD will support the deal for johnson to gain a majority. He's got Friday to gain their support possibly by stating it's just a first step to prosperity where everyone would benefit in the long run. A Unicorn world.

 

As for a 2nd referendum, forget it as the 'the people' have already demonstrated they know zilch about the cost of tea in China.  

Name one Liberal Democrat who would vote for this deal?

 

The deal will pass, subject to a second referendum ... otherwise it will not get through.

Correct and let's pass the photo-id legislation whilst were at it a significant portion of the Leave vote don't have driving licences or passports so we can disenfranchise them at a stroke.

Only fools and horses would want to see it. Just accept it and move on.  Why? because it's a compromise which is about as it's good as it's going to get even if brexit was prolonged for eternity. Forget ideology and stick to real life challenges - the ones that affect most of the population.. 

Revoke, remain and move on. Enough is enough.

Thankfully, quite a few of them have had a stroke ... so the confirmatory referendum attached to Boris's deal will be fun.

We'll see, won't we. You can bet your bottom dollar that the rise in the pound was not solely to do with expectation or speculation, but insider knowledge had a hand in it.

The realism is that it could never happen. Too much water has passed under the bridge to even hope for that.

Now parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment."

 

Dream on , parliament crossed the event horizon a ways back.
