 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.

Do a little more research, apparently there are Labour MP's who will vote against " an election which is effectively a second referendum. " as some Labour MP's actually believe in democracy.

 

Angel1. 

Evidence of this please which is irrefutable and not subjective.

 

Angel1.

Yes, we know about the Kate Hoeys, John Manns etc. but they are more than offset by the number of Tory MPs who have already publicly stated that they are prepared to support a motion of no confidence. Dominic Grieve has also said that he knows 50-70 Tory MPs who will support a vote of no confidence when it come to the crunch and we are faced with no-deal.

 

As far as Leave supporters saying no deal will be damaging, I refer you to three Brexit extremists, Steve (shotgun) Baker,, Mark François and Jacob Rees-Mogg who have all said that a no-deal Brexit will do damage, but that we have to put up with it to get to the ‘sunny uplands’.

It's been reported that Owen Jones who campaigns against a no deal Brexit amongst other things was the subject of a vicious street assault by a gang of "right wing thugs", who kicked him in the head repeatedly:

Only today Dominic Grieve was speaking about the death threats he's been receiving....

Sunday Times have a huge scoop. 

Operation Yellowhammer, which is the Government's 'no deal' (or absence of a deal) has been leaked and revealed:

 

‘This is not Project Fear — it’s what we face after no-deal Brexit’. Codenamed Yellowhammer, it is the clandestine operation intended to prepare the UK for a no-deal Brexit. In one of his first acts as prime minister, Boris Johnson declared that he would “turbocharge” the UK’s preparation for no-deal on October 31, appointing Michael Gove to lead the cross- government efforts.

Which, amongst other impacts will, involve shortages of fuel, a 3 month meltdown at the UK's ports, a hard border in Ireland

 

I read earlier in the Independent that over 100 MPs have now written to Johnson to recall parliament early, because of the looming 'national emergency':

If there is a hard border with Ireland, you can kiss any trade deal with the US goodbye. Even if Trump says he wants one, he won’t get to sign one because the Democrats won’t let it through Congress.

 

Someone said that Labour MPs would would vote against a no confidence vote because it would lead to a general election are bonkers. No Labour MP would do that because they would be going against the possibility of being in government. No opposition MP would turn down the chance of being the governing party. If they did they would be deselected, in no time.

Not so sure about that. I think “if” it somehow went through Congress, the Senate is far less likely to stop it.

Anyway for those concerned about chlorinated chicken flooding the UK after Brexit, fear not. Ben Bradley, the gormless MP for Mansfield pointed out:

 

" Errmmm... We have chlorinated TAP WATER in this country. Worth thinking about before kicking off about chlorinated chicken."

If this is another leaked document what are we paying our security services for.

 

I'd be looking at the remoaners.

Pretty much destroys the idea that the UK won't install a hard border in NI too.... didn't see that coming :?

 

Worth noting that this isn't Operation Black Swan, which was about the possible worst case scenarios...

 

Operation Yellowhammer is what government thinks *will* happen!

I take it from that, you believe information like that should be kept hidden from the public?

The term you were looking for is “Reminders”, there to constantly remind the brexiteers of the damage their Brexit vote is doing to the country.
