Before the referendum I read everyrhing I could from both sides of the argument and absorbed everyrhing people posted. I listened to friends and family, I had loads of discussions in the pub, I watched many political programmes and I joined the leave camp. The majority of people I know also voted leave. Since then it's been a disgusting shambles and it's been handled terribly as we can see. Theresa may and her cabinet have been shocking and the EU have dry bummed us. I also think Corbyn is a Cunt and a dangerous one at that. He was firmly in the leave camp years ago, I watched an old interview with him the other day where he made it quite clear what he thought of the EU...now he's changed his tune. I'm all for brexit still and I want out. I'm happy with a no deal scenario and plenty are. I think we'll suffer in the short term and prosper in later years. I think the EU needs us a lot more than we need them. I'm sick of watching the biased news and biased BBC question time panels.. Thursday night's had four remainers and one leaver on the panel..  hardly reflects the vote does it? No one I know who voted leave has changed their mind, yet we're lead to believe the majority have changed their mind. I don't trust politicians and I don't trust the media. If they cancel article 50 or go for another vote I'm off down the capital to smash the place up.. the country is fucked already and there'll be some mightily pissed off people here.

It's inevitable there will be either a general election or another referendum.  This parliament isn't able to pass a deal or a no deal.  There is no mandate for no deal and there needs to be further debate.

Good luck with that

Re: The EU Hokey Cokey

I've found the last few days fascinating, things seem to be changing by the hour. Hats off to Bercow and his stop fucking about and make a decision attitude.

This seems not far off from Armando Iannuci

This Predictions for next week? I think:
May loses vote.
One Amendment permitted for Plan B.
Norway-Plus proposed and passed.
May resigns.
Hard Brexiteer becomes new PM, inheriting a Soft Brexit.
Calls election.
Election inconclusive.
Calls 2nd Referendum.

So..

If this came to fruition what would be the situation in relation to the £39bn exit fee?

It was a massive fuck up by the Tories agreeing the figure before any proper negotiation really started (putting the cart before the horse) but the EU won't want to forego such a large lump sum.

I don't think they had any choice did they? Thought this was laid down as a pre-requisite for talks to begin by Juncker, Tusk et al. I might be wrong.

If that was the situation then explains why the negotitiations have been such a fuck-up, if the UK was in such a weak position to start with.
Like going to a car sales garage and informing them that you have £5,000 to spend on a car and it MUST be spent with them, and "what have you got for me?".
You'll end up with the car they want to sell to you, not the car you want to buy.

I think there has to be a general election so that there can be a chance for a choice and a mandate for a way forward. 

I'm sorry to say it because he's transformed politics to an extent, well he's given us a left wing choice but my gut says they get a strong majority without him and Dianne Abbott.  I like him but I don't think he's a leader or at least what people want in a leader.  I kind of want someone who looks like they would punch a hole in a Labour club toilet wall.  I loved Bob Crow.

JC was/is never going to be PM as he's been smeared to fuck as an unhinged lefty. You're average Joe, wavering voter won't have it, as far as I can discern and nobody would trust any of those with a Blairite background.

Re: The EU Hokey Cokey

I like him so much I literally bought the t-shirt (nearly led to a punch up in Brighouse Tesco once but that's another story). Saying that, even I can see an argument for a change. I wouldn't vote for it myself but can see why people want it. I suppose the real question is whether the party can continue in the vein it has in terms of policy if he went? Not sure it could.

Starmer yes.  Lewis maybe.  Rayner maybe.  Gardiner yes.  Ummuna no.  Cooper no.  Despite them both making a lot of sense recently, their credentials are damaged due to past comments and allegiances.

I'm not usually ahead of the fashion but I did think he was an unhinged lefty before the smear campaign started - mostly because he was an unhinged lefty, and to be honest that's why I liked him.  It's only his post leadership wish to sell out to the political centre that upsets me.
