Consequences of Brexit [part 7] Read first post before posting

 Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

If it was that simple then why has parliament not accepted it?

 

The backstop gives the EU control of that which by all accounts we, the UK cannot alter. If the deal is accepted then we will be liable to pay VAT to them. If it is accepted then many other bits of EU legislation will also apply. Saying we will have completely left and not under their umbrella is misleading. We may not legally be an active member but the EU will still have control over certain aspects.

Again, all completely irrelevant.

 

Parliament has not accepted May's deal because remainers won't vote for anything that weakens the UK economy and leavers all have their own particular views on what they think leave should mean over and above ceasing to be a member of the EU, and won't vote for anything that doesn't produce that.

 

It is not the remainers in Parliament preventing a deal being agreed, it is leavers who will only vote for their own interpretation of leave.

Why is Theresa May asking for the same extension period that the EU have already rejected? Is the Maybot malfunctioning?

Is For Britain the far right extremist group led by a former Labour Party member and parliamentary candidate?

 

 

Not sure.

 

I think it might be that crackpot Anne-Marie whatshername who ran for UKIP leadership.

Yup. That’s her. Her wiki page says she was a Labour parliamentary candidate at one time. Anne Marie Waters.

It's the full poll results that matter, not the spin newspapers with a particular bias put on the bits of it they selectively quote.

Krishnan Guru-Murthy terminated an interview with John Redwood on Channel Four News tonight for using this same poll to repeatedly claim that the majority of the population now support leaving the EU without a deal. Guru-Murthy kept telling him that this was simply not true and kept asking Redwood what poll he was referring to. Redwood refused to say and kept repeating his claim. In the end Guru-Murthy simply ended the interview mid stream.

 

 It is about time that more journalists drew a line in the sand when being lied to by politicians.

Merely to try to con her hard Brexit colleagues that she is trying her best to follow their wishes to some extent but in the certain knowledge that this deadline will not be agreed by the EU negotiators.

The main objective remains the unity of the Conservative party,but this seems to be ever diminishing.

It's about time politicians were properly reprimanded for lying both in and to the public.

And he must have known he was lying while he was doing it. People like him really are swine.

In the week, the news organisations reported that Theresa May had received a letter signed by 170 Tory MPs saying that they would prefer a no deal exit to a long delay.

 

Later in the week the Chancellor Phillip Hammond was asked about it in an interview and said that not only had he never heard of this letter but given that only between 30 and 50 Tory MPs it is unlikely that suddenly 170 MPs would be signing such a letter.

 

In these days of fake news, the supposedly respectable news organisations should know better than to facilitate the spread of it!

Not that confusing, the remainers want the one foot in one out deal, the leavers want both feet out.
