Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

What I have realised now is that Brexit does not mean Brexit, whatever else it means. When is Brexit Brexit? When is a deal a deal? Does all this help the seaside resort of Deal?

Theresa May to urge MPs to give her more time to seek Brexit concessions/quote]What concessions? Unless May moves her red lines, the EU has concluded negotiations and has agreed a deal with the UK. And if she moves any of her red lines, she faces a huge Tory backlash. the Brextremists seem to rely ...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

Alan, maybe you can help me over this. If the May deal involves a backstop which involves remaining in a Customs Union with the EU for an indefinite time, AND if this is anathema to all the Labour MPs who voted against the deal, AND YET if Labour wants a permanent Customs Union, whatever is the diff...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

I take your point that May's deal may well be less worse than no deal - and I suspect she's hoping others will see that as well - but it's still a dereliction of duty by MPs. It is simply the lesser of two self-imposed harms. Some MPs have it in their tiny little minds that the advisory referendum ...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

Brexiters are finally being forced to face reality For at least three years – and in some cases much longer – Brexiters have peddled fantasies, half-truths and outright lies about what Brexit would mean and how it could be done. Ever since the 2016 referendum more and more of these have been expose...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

I think that Parliament will eventually accept the May deal, whatever its faults, since what is the alternative? I think they need to realise that would be a dereliction of their duty to their constituents. However, it was resoundingly defeated and many MPs knows it will be a disaster, so it's diff...

Re: Brexit News For Brexiteers, please see the link

So where to now? The EU have finished negotiations and have agreed a deal with the UK government and have said that's the best deal available. Parliament rejects that deal. No one other than a few right-wing extremists want a no-deal Brexit. Labour wants a 'jobs-first' Brexit that's made of the sam...
