If there is a general election before 31 Oct then the labour rebels (leaver supporting MPs) are screwed no matter what they do imo. They will all lose their seats to brexit party candidates, they're still labour no matter what they do and the pro-brexit majority in their constituencies (which I assu...

Just watching things after a time ignoring all things politics. Johnson doing everything right: staying true to himself, assembling a solid team, providing energy after stale May. True to himself? Nobody knows what he really stands for (apart from whatever's best for Boris!). That solid team... som...

Only if tory brexiters aren't as smart as you give them credit for. I'm sure they can see straight through Boris and his flim-flam whatever helps him the most positions.

As I understand it he's heavily invested in pretty illiquid AIM type companies that he can't easily get out of without giving the shares away, hence suspending redemptions.

I'd say that some voters who went for the brexit party in the EU elections will go back to their "traditional" party (same with libdems votes) for a general election. The question would be how many? Personally I'd say a quarter or less but enough to significantly reduce the expected MPs fo...

You do realise that this "parliamentary precedent" was just previous speakers making it up as they went along don't you? So, TM is gone, which political"heavyweight" (rofl) do we get next? I can see a brexiteer pm whistle until 31 Oct and let us drop out on the worst possible ter...

Why? Around 40 per cent of the public back it (enough for a majority) and if done well could lead to a economic boom. Because once brexit is over it'll not be an issue people vote on anymore. After 6 months the majority of people will just be relieved it's over one way or the other. I do believe th...

But they can reject them when asked to vote on them.

Boris isn't a hard brexiteer, he's a "become pm by any means possible" politician. Hardly someone to be trusted with the top job. LJ talks about politicians ignoring the people, the only reason Farage et al "listen" to certain parts of the public is because those parts are saying...

This is something Greer thinks is very possible (and yes, I do take him seriously given he forecast Trump victory in January 2016) - did you Cubes? I've no idea who Greer is tbh, I'm not the one who criticised him either. I stand by my view for 5 years after a hard/no deal brexit though. Only time ...

In case you hadn't noticed, they don't work anymore.
Plus f***ing one!

Cubes, your sneering rant was grotesque.
It'll also be true in 5 years time if we no-deal brexit.

5 years after brexit the arguments from the pro-brexit masses will be "why are there still immigrants?", "I've lost my job because of the brexit" and "why is the economy not as great as Farage/Rees-Mogg were promising us?".

Why would it collapse? Howeverr, if it does we'd likely be equally hard hit economically in or out.

My take, and the Tories ended up doing worse than when the above was written, is that both parties do have an interest in getting Brexit over the line, albeit a semi-soft version. A semi-soft brexit deal now will be a hard brexit deal under a new tory leader when they "fail" to negotiate ...
