But in all likelihood, it will be too late.

The "will of the people" has been, and still is now, whatever happens to be politically expedient enough, for May to hold onto the PM job for another day.

People will eventually realise that...but the evidence is that history is never kind to those who make the wrong choices.

You’ll be waiting for a long time getting it from me, because 9845 wasn’t even addressed to me.

Thanks

May is held hostage by hardline Brexiters and the DUP

She has a choice but it will hurt the Tory party, and the party and not the country is her main priority.

He's said this since before the referendum. He will keep saying it, he is manoeuvring the EU to a closer integration (with my blessing by the way) and this is excellent ammunition for that cause.

To be honest and I'm a leaver. I would stay if Unification happened, taxes were the same benefits too, But hay that's a pipe dream, is it not?

The first half is all 'has the sky fallen in?' - doesn't say what's good about Brexit.
The second half is a load of cobblers. So be a love and try agin would you?

What's so good about Brexit?
Brexit has led to increased funding for the NHS, promised by both major parties.

Brexit has led to increased wages and less unemployment.

Brexit caused the departures of both Cameron and Osbourne.

Brexit is a peoples revolt against the establishment.

These things are what's great about Brexit.

What democracy means to a Remainer: The people have spoken, but it was unacceptable and so they must be forced to speak again and again until they can repeat what the establishment, big business and the bankers want them to say.

On a point of principle you should ask it again, to me this time if you want me to answer it.

Kind of a way of you making up for wrongfully accusing me of not answering a question you never asked me to begin with.

Youíll learn from it, I hope.

Brexit has given more power to right wing Tories - let the working class rejoice in the not the establishment of Johnson, Gove, Farage, Fox, Rees-Mogg...........
