    I think the last leader we had meeting those requirements was William the Conker, bit before your time.

    I don't see what the problem is, when even our resident Europhiles agree no deal is best.

    Don't you worry about we Brits, Thai immigration doesn't need Brexit to kill us off.

    Mogg says he went with the Merkel-May surrender Treaty as the least bad of a terrible bunch of options, and only because it gets us out of the EU politically; iow, the closest available to Brexit.

    Not sure I agree, while the surrender Treaty officially sees us politically out we open the treasury to them without a voice or a say, to stay at the mercy of a powerful though malignant outfit whose slimmest chance at survival is to ensure we are seen to fail.

    I haven't read the smallprint, but for total success at betrayal expect May has consented to some really rotten wording that's going to haunt us for generations. But that's a fair price for a seat at the trough, eh, squirrel?

    Probably will resign, makes more sense than being booted. That Bercrow rat is also on his way out, so hopefully we will soon have a Parliament that's worth not burning.

    Hitler to Germany led to consequences for Europe, good analogy. Change a face here and name there for German instinct rekindled, to dominate Europe by other means.

    I think the EU have a meeting, a few days before the 12 April deadline. I’m hoping they will say what most people are saying to themselves about now.
    This has gone on for far too long and I’m getting really bored with it. Let’s give the U.K. a hard Brexit on 12 April. It will be worth it even if it only puts an end to Seeking Asylum and his pointless, repetitive withering.

    A Downing Street spokesman highlighted the fact that May’s margin of defeat, 58, was smaller than the 149 majority she lost by earlier this month, and the crushing 230-strong defeat in the first meaningful vote in January. “We are at least going in the right direction,” the spokesman said.
    So, vote 4 coming up.

    What an utter farce. It's like something off 'Black Mirror'.

    Had a text chat with high flying stockbroker mate yesterday, says utilities are down on fears of a GE with Corbyn winning, I'm no stock expert by any means but advised him to dive in and take no prisoners, easy money; closest Corbyn ever gets to government is those few feet in the House.

    Hey fufu, have you twigged yet? Ok let's do it this way, leave it till after the GE with no doubt in the electorate mind that a Tory PM wilfully betrayed the country, the Tories in disarray and in the greatest crisis since the old Queen died, and Labour pimped 10 points ahead by the Grauniad and Independent dafties, and the Tories still winning. Then see if you twig that the greatest stumbling block to a Labour gov is its own leader.

    Meh!

    To give you some credit, you really did save everyone some difficult conversations by leaving school before the exams.

    It's probably time to form the Insurrectionary London Commune, and elect a present day Maximilien Robespierre. Political trials and summary executions should begin by years end, and Tommy Robinson shall be appointed the director of the Committee of Public Safety. The new Republic, did I mention the Republic, will become one-and-indivisible. A Constitution, to be written by Nigel Farage, will be presented to parliament no later than Independence Day, 2020 (March 29).

    Sorry Chitty but fair's fair and you got that wrong. Juncker was properly elected and under independent scrutiny.

    Stand by...hey doc, you're our flexinumber expert, how many names were on the ballot when Juncker was elected? No googling, pls.

    a) 1
    b) 1
    c) 1

    You mean the assguy will stop bombarding us with the same same crap if we have a hard Brexit? Deal me in, that's good enough reason to crash out.

    Interesting Robespierre trivia; he was such an entrancing orator that his executioners feared he could rouse the people against them in the couple of minutes from cell to guillotine; so they cut out his tongue the night before.

    The EU is not fond of democratic process, as their own ombudsman points out...

    Not an option, as explained many pages back. However, revoking A50 and coming up with a fully planned way forward to leave the EU, which should have been done in the first place might work. A pity Ken Clarke was booed so much when he put such a sensible idea to Parliament.

    Request a 5 year extension to cover the new EU parliament sitting and think about why the UK wants to leave the EU would be best. What were the reasons for leaving again?

    You thought??

    The EU will meet 10 April according to their statement.

    No doubt they'll agree to let the Brexit can be kicked down the road another year or two. That way they get another budget agreed with the UK paying...
