Somewhat surprisingly, even though the Conservatives have owned the Brexit clusterfuck since day one, they would still win the biggest share of the vote in an election, by some 15%.

Shows how unpopular Labour are!

Polls before the 2017 General showed Theresa May's Conservatives winning 20% of the vote.

The polls were wrong.

But I think we're definitely in "A plague upon both..." territory here.

BREAKING: Boris has agreed a deal with the EU. All he needs to do now is get it through Parliament by Saturday. Easy!

Not if he has enough rebels from Labour or elsewhere. Seems unlikely.

I hear the vote he'll put forward for Saturday is his deal or leave without a deal. That's not going to wash.

It's going to be an interesting couple of days.

>*^*<


UPDATE: It doesn't sound like the EU would grant an extension if asked. The choice really could be deal or no deal on Saturday. Has Boris pulled a blinder?

Article 50 can be revoked by the UK Parliament with a simple request.

Leavers will be free to re-run a more persuasive and compelling Campaign; and Remainers can put forward the counter arguments.

Leaving the EU remains an option for as long as the UK is in the EU.

But once the UK is out, it's out. Remainers have to become "Returners".

Therefore the only logical course of action is to repeal Article 50, since it doesn't preclude Leavers leaving or Remainers remaining.

But let's face it:

If the Leavers could speak honestly, they would say that the reason they are determined to push through the 2015 Referendum result, is because they know there is *ZERO* chance of "Leave" winning a Second Referendum.

It's the duplicitousness that I find so dispiriting.

There's a special sitting of Parliament tomorrow for debate and votes on the deal. I feel like it should be being shown at pubs instead of sports.

LIVE UPDATE: They're arguing.

LIVE UPDATE: No vote on the deal as an amendment was passed compelling BoJo to pass all the legislation re: Brexit BEFORE the vote on the deal.

:((

This headline nearly sums up our retarded situation - our PM being forced by law to send a letter requesting an extension but simultaneously saying he doesn't want one.

Image





III/O


Quote:
Boris Johnson has written to the EU requesting a three-month delay to Brexit - despite telling them he doesn't want one and vowing to press on with taking the UK out of the bloc on 31 October.

The prime minister did not sign the letter to European Council President Donald Tusk requesting a further extension to the Article 50 negotiating period to 31 January 2020.

And Sky News understands he sent a separate letter explaining why EU leaders should not grant an extension.

He was forced to request a delay after MPs voted earlier on Saturday to withhold their approval for his Brexit deal unless and until he has passed all necessary legislation to implement the agreement.





III/O

There's a plan?

Although I see Rees Mogg has announced a 3 day timetable to get Brexit through, which is ambitious.

And then all we have to do is agree a trade deal before the transition agreement ends at the end of 2020. How exciting! \:D/

At this rate, I don't see how Britain will ever become great again.

At the very least, if this debacle ever ends, the UK should forfeit the right to ever prefix "Britain" with "Great" in any official documentation.

It's not like anyone is ever going to be able to use the two words together again.

"Little Britain" works on many levels.

I'm not sure why they can't just hold a referendum on whether or not to hold another referendum which will set a date to discuss terms of another referendum and where to discuss the details regarding an additional referendum, if required.

It's a countdown to when we Brexit unless the extension BoJo was forced to ask for is granted by the EU in which case the new Brexit date will be end of January. Obvs.
