gtr: correct -- it will be interesting to see how long parliament will block an election. What a fool Cameron was in passing that legislation with the liberals, whatever one's views on Brexit, it is, and will in the future, prevent the proper governance in the country

Its not a question of being humble, its just I can't see your logic here Ark.
before I start I should also state I would of voted to leave.
Anyway, on the Irish border you said initially you would get the EU to put up a hard border if it wants one, and then you say you support a hard border, so do you want it just on one side? Enforced on the Irish side but not the UK? that's some weird border! And all this when the people that actually live there don't want one and will have to put up with all the inconvenience of it which is fine for those that dont have to live with the implications.


As for WTO rules you do know under WTO rules dairy attracts a 36% Tariff barrier. NI is reliant on all its dairy from Ireland, how do you think that will work out down the local shop?
I take it you are referring to Mays DUP enforced second deal that would of left the whole UK in the EU for a 5 year period?? Of course hard line remainders would of voted it down just as hard line leavers did.
discussion of possible referendum is a long way from confirmation that there would be one, for a start Cameron need to win an election in between and noting was set in stone whatsoever. Even so ever poll had remain winning easy. Thinking of Negotiate a treaty with the EU, when a referendum hadn't even been set, nah don't think so. As for Rangers, ha, the highest Independence vote was in Glasgow! The lowest in Edinburgh..

Here's another stat. Scotland recorded a thumping 60% plus remain vote, and in some of the areas like Edinburgh that voted strongly against independence , voted the most strongly to remain 74%!

Bazza: I would have both sides enforce it, that is to say, the Irish border. This will break the GFA which is why I would grant a referendum

I don't think Brexit is worth doing unless it is done fully. Thinking on Mrs May's deal I would almost rather remain, than to be tied into the EU still with no voting rights. This is what Norway does and it is bloody stupid

Galsgow:

in some respects, you know Bazza, Glasgow and Belfast cost Cameron the referendum. He was relying on the Celts to vote 'remain' but, from memory turn out in those areas was around 60 per cent comaparred to low 70 per cents in some regions in England. Once again, they only have themselves to blame.

Do you think the PM will survive? I see Bercow has resigned.

You could replace the words Brexit and EU with WAFL and Peel and the discussion would almost mirror letting Peel in the comp and now just about impossible to get them out. Kind of like a reverse Brexit, Peel want to stay but we want them out. Lol

Never trust Polls after our last Federal élection.But remember Labour where always under 40% in there primary vote.So they where always relying on others to win.
Last night UK poll had Boris Tory party 12% ahead.So he has the support of the British people for his Brexit deal.Get it done Boris.

GTR

Labour know that if they can force a delay, get no deal off the table and then go to a GE, they take all of the ammo off Boris and the Tories, that could knock the polling for 6, add the Lib Dems who have now come out and confirmed that they will have an official 2nd Ref policy at the next GE which remainders will flock too , the result is far from certain.

gtr,bazza: If Labour were confident they would have had an election, won it, and be getting ready to send Jessa himself to get the silly extension. If the PM is true to his word, they -- parliament -- will have to remove him after the 17 October, otherwise they will be out on the 31 October -- it is the law in Europe.

Of course what they will try and do is replace Boris the Russian with a 'remainer' PM without going to a general election. This would need the support of the twenty tory traitors and would cause trouble on the streets.
