Fate has a habit in working in mysterious ways :hmmm:

The DUP so outraged at Mays deal could end up triggering a referendum on a united Ireland, not that I know the mechanics of how that trigger could be pulled tbh :dunno:

Crashing out on WTO rules means a hard border is unavoidable & its legitimate for the Ulster people to be asked what they want, remain with GB or a unified Ireland?

I'm leaning towards another referendum as the 1st was based on theory/ideology & a large dose of bull shit on both sides but now reality/facts are known. True it'll be a nasty divisive campaign but parliament dont seem capable of sorting it out.

My vote? I'd abstain.

One last thought:

It seems more than strange that the EU who insist on a back-stop to avoid a hard border are so intransigent that their making a hard border a certainty if we crash out & that's totally illogical Spock :biker:

South spuds can’t afford the north spuds.

They’re a mess up there. They can’t even agree to run the place and try and lecture other areas

Pretty sure he says ‘Stupid People’ but he should apologise anyway.

The fact that most of the media are focussing their attention on this rather than the almighty clusterfuck that this shambles of a government are making of Brexit speaks volumes. :dunno:

We'll agree to differ on what he 'uttered' not that I give fuck either way tbh.

I dont/wont disagree with yer description of this government either but I cant see anything coming from Labour that makes much sense. The sort of deal their claiming they could negotiate must of been inspired by Enid Blyton :hmmm:

Their freight forwarders, anyway, the main worry is the doubt that it'll be up & running in time according to this not that they dont actually own any ships.

I'm struggling to understand why some are claiming last nights vote = less chance of a no deal :dunno:

The tory's should be grateful that Corbyn is the Labour leader cos almost anyone else would be a certainty to be the next PM. As bad as this useless government is with a useless leader, incredibly the torys are still favourites to win the next election :shock:

My own humble opinion is that the tory's cant unite whatever the outcome of brexit happens to be :hmmm:

Postby Tim Bisley » Wed Jan 16, 2019 12:15 pm

Tories ;)

Extension of Article 50 is inevitable now.

Only the complete headbangers want no deal Brexit. There is no mandate for it so it’s negotiate a better deal, which she won’t get because of her ridiculous red lines, or Referendum mk2.

If the country votes to leave at all costs then we deserve what we get.

As an aside, on tv just now, a brexiteer has just suggested that John Redwood be installed as caretaker PM because ‘he’s a Sir so he must be good at something’. That, after blaming Gina Miller for the current mess. :shock:

As low opinion that I have of May, her red lines were in line with the minimum requirement's for leaving the EU. Like so many, you appear to blame her for trying to carry out the instruction's forced upon her by the referendum :dunno:

The danger of a 2nd 'peoples vote' is that people like you who have done nothing but insult & ridicule everyone on the opposite side harden there their views & the last opinion poll had no deal supporters at 37% which surprised me tbh, I didn't expect so many. :hmmm:

Dont blink, open yer eyes.

Instead of banking on those MP's that want no deal off the table getting their way they should focus more on the alternative no deal scenario. :hmmm:

The EU clearly put politics above their own economic interest, well, at the moment thats accurate enough. :biker: Italy in recession, Germany on the brink etc not to mention how a no deal would cripple the Irish economy.

May by not being prepared to compromise on the CU & single market could be, harshly in my view, be accused of splitting the tory party beyond repair. I said harshly because a compromise wouldn't be possible without freedom of movement imho. = We are still in the EU :doh:

whereas our lot are acting in the best interests of the country :OFFS:

the EU has been very clear about retaining the coherence and laws of the single market..... our lot haven't got a fking clue....

What is for sure is that there will be economic damage on both sides irrespective.... we will be both be up shit creek. Difference is we wont have a paddle - and the way we are going there may be no canoe either
