As someone pointed out, there are three camps, there are the public who are split in two, just under half wanted to stay in, just over half wanted right out. Then there are the politicians who want to satisfy the bigger half by leaving in name and the smaller half by making a deal that keeps us in in everything but name, thereby pissing off everyone.

the relief that came with confirming
that the UK factions continued to exist
after midnight UT defies all words
i have been able to find.
i may have to build one myself.
:D
heeeeeeeeelllo UK-ites!!!!!
i really think the heritage cheese thing
is worth bringing up to members of parliament
and those other people with letters.

So following rejection of that deal for the third time Donald Tusk has called a meeting of the EU Council on the 10th April to discuss the situation. Given that the EU keeps telling us how bad it would be for Britain to leave without a deal (without clarifying that it would be equally bad for them) perhaps they ought to throw us out without a deal just to teach us a lesson. That would put them in a much stronger negotiating position, but only if they were right.

I reckon parliament is a true reflection of the people they represent an brexit has shown that...what does the future holds..possibly the far right getting mp's and Scotland going it's own way...as for NI..would Irish Republic even want that baggage around their neck..for me the future is a parting for all of the UK...worth a try

I don't understand why the SNP don't put up candidates in English constituencies? Anyone who was socialist would probably prefer them to Labour who can't make their mind up if they are Blairites or Corbynites. Add to that all the people who would like to get rid of Scotland and they could end up with a majority in the English parliament and vote themselves independence from England and back into the EU.

I have finally figured out, we are in Brexit hell. It doesn't matter which deal or no deal is arrived at this is not going to stop. Unless Article 50 is rescinded this is going to go on long past my death. A constant diet of Brexit news will dominate everything. No-one seems to have realised the EU will still be there after we have left and we will have to negotiate a new trade deal to replace the one we just junked. There is, quite literally, no end to this madness. The 'we want a hard Brexit now and then it will all be over' brigade are in for a nasty surprise.

If they are thick enough to think like that they must spend enough of their life being surprised they are used to it by now.

Big business doesn't need migrants so much as there is enough desperate Brits to replace them..so why can't the middle class agree to leave..I think it's a battle between the upper middle class and the lower middle class who have holiday homes abroad..one has wheels the other doesn't.

I predict a long delay, many hard negotiations, many long lunches, many business class journeys and many secondary expenses.

yes, but will they call out for chinese?

Brexit, like Guy Fauks Day, and many other pronouncements - minor and otherwise- of the English, in their english, remain inscrutable.
