    Tories still seem to think they can just tweak the deal and all will be fine. It's a dead and buried, they need to understand this simple fact.

    No point trying to deliver what you ASSume the people want or voted for. You need to deliver what they actually want now. Do it before it's too late.

    Agreeing to a cross-party debate whilst trying to halt brexit solutions being debated in Parliament is piss poor politics, something the May government is getting a reputation for.

    I thought it was Sid or DrBob

    Whoever it is, they are doing a damn fine job winding up the inmates here.



    This parasite needs to fvck off!

    Labour MP Stephen Kinnock says he had "constructive talks" with cabinet ministers David Lidington and Michael Gove and the prime minister's chief of staff Gavin Barwell.
    He says he raised the need for the prime minister to take no deal off the table, as well as discussing his preferred option of a Norway-style agreement, which would see a close relationship with the European Union.
    He told BBC News: “It’s time for all parties to come together in the national interest."

    That's the BBC for you, to think we have to pay a licence fee by law in the UK to have this shite rammed down our necks

    David Cameron has no credibility and only saving grace is he gave his paymasters a vote they wanted.

    The UK doesn't pay engineers diddly squat, bugger all manufacturing so not much to design. They prefer profit to quality and will rush any crap onto the street to make a buck. I was earning 3 to 4 times in the USA and more than double in Europe.

    The witch has exiled many more and returning to the UK would force separation from the wife for several months and cost silly fooking money. That's even though I have enough savings and earn well over the threshold. Thai authorities are easier to deal with than the coonts in England.

    I would guess most have a personal/financial interest in the ongoing shenanigans.

    EU to lose £500bn and UK to gain £640bn in no-deal Brexit, economist claims

    A "no deal" outcome from the Brexit negotiations would lead to a £500 billion loss for the European Union, according to a new analysis.


    A study by Patrick Minford, a professor of economics at Cardiff University, states that while a failure to reach a deal would lead to "short term nuisance" for both sides, Brussels would face a "substantial economic loss", compared to a net gain for the UK.


    Prof Minford, who chairs the Eurosceptic Economists for Free Trade group, concludes: "It could not be more open and shut who least wants a breakdown". The analysis comes after David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, complained in a letter to the Prime Minister that Brussels was damaging British interests by talking...

    17.4 million voted leave. 16.1 million voted remain.

    Any more complex statistical analyses you need help with?

    I have a feeling the UK's arrogance and harking back to the days of Empire and going to cost it dearly. Why would any country choose to do business with an island with an isolationist mentality that decided to default its "divorce" payments when they could deal with one of the largest trading blocs on the country. With Brexit we will lose some 60 pre-existing WTO agreements as they are tied to EU membership. Never mind, we can spend decades renegotiating them,eh?

    The economy should always come before sovereignty and dimwitted nationalistic jingoism. A healthy bank balance matters more to me than preserving the British way of life. Time to let it die and embrace globalism

    Just a few Random thoughts.
    TM is right to retain the no deal option. It has some leverage.
    The move to extend A50 remains a possibility, perhaps as far as 23 May when EU elections take place.
    Playing devils advocate, is it likely that 23 May could equate to 29 March? In that case, does leave Remain the default position if any kind of deal is not reached by the new date?
    Surely that is sufficient incentive for both sides to do a deal?

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, the extension seems unlikely, TM is dragging her lack of negotiating skills ever closer to the default deadline. The EU really donít want to give the UK any realistic incentive to leave on terms other than of their choosing.
    Ergo both sides are heading slowly to a default position of no deal, with or without an extension?

    I have deliberately dismissed such detail as Bercow and the others trying to usurp tradition, procedures and precedence of the House. They simply donít deserve such recognition.
