    Has anyone read this short story called "The Great Democracy"? I think it explains everything Brexit, Whitehouse, Westminster and whatnot.

    When Boris was replying to questions yesterday to the backdrop of police officers I got a very uneasy feeling and after watching Question Time last night I'm thinking this is not going to end well

    Nah, last I heard he was taking tips off Trump on how to lie by using a.... Sharpie... Other than defacing weather charts, Trump's upped his drawing skills elsewhere. At least he finally managed to get his wall..... Here's what else Donal Trump would chang with a Sharpie.

    I've never hated and been terrified more by a political balls-up in my life. No one is fit to run this country at the momemt. The old guard need removing across all parties. The decisions over Brexit belong to the youth: they'll be the ones dealing with fallout for years to come.

    What terrifies me is that while they are all arguing about Brexit, there are more important issues to discuss... aka climate change and plastic pollution. If they don't take these issues seriously NOW our children and grandchildren won't have a future.

    I have tried to follow the various Brexit debates and I've lost the will to live. What happens to Ireland if there is a 'No Deal'?

    US lot go in heavy-handed with what's known as a 'hard border' with them: from remote cameras to guard posts to see what goods are crossing between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. And the prospect of that... hell no, God no....

    Edit: sorry. You ideally need to know the history over the Northern Ireland conflict v Brexit to understand the fears. Nobody wants to see this split again. At the moment you can move freely between the two, with goods checks going on at the borders, but around Ireland -- not right through it, splitting the two again. The UK only has a say in Northern Ireland, so we'll be effectively dividing Ireland into two, in a potentially more physical presence than ever seen before. I wouldn't be happy, I know that.

    The two party system has ran its course..why Labour still calls itself that I'm dumbfounded...Liberals,SNP...etc one would expect to find new ground while the YA in society must organise themselves and face the challenge with all they can...good luck

    For me the backstop is more of a psyhcological barrier as it may stop people thinking in unison and bring back the us and them mentality

    The decision by the electorate was to "Leave the European Union" which won by a majority of 1,269,501 votes (3.78%) over those who had voted in favour of "Remain a member of the European Union", with England and Wales voting to "Leave" while Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to "Remain"
    So if NI and Scotland voted to remain, I wonder how fair it is on them for the 'Will' of England and Wales to be inflicted on them? Maybe Brexit will break the United Kingdom. Ho hum

    It's not fair at all on either. Scotland won't face the potential conflict that Northern Ireland(potential non-EU member as forced by the UK) and the Republic of Ireland do (EU remainers no matter what the UK say). But they have good support from the EU with imported/exported goods and funding. They would face a lot of loss with no trade deals. So would the UK, so the questions is there -- why the f*** did ANYONE think leaving would be better for us? Why have politicians been caught lying and promoting anti-EU propaganda when they know all the issue we're going to face with a no-deal Brexit, or Brexit in general. What are they hiding? Well, I can guess what when it comes to EU laws on offshore accounts and stopping grubby UK hands flouncing the EU system.

    I honestly don't know if it's down to Brexit or not, but it's getting scray with how thin the supermarket shelves are looking. We have five main shopping chains around us: Asda, two with Tesco, Sainsbury's, Aldi, and Lidl. Yet each week I go, shelves look less and less stocked.

    It's just bad blood all around.
