It's just a perpetual cycle of repetition. The same arguments we've had for the last 2 years will continue until we all die.

Quoted from codcheeky
Surely May will resign?


Everyone is happy for her to stay and be the fall guy. If anything her position is strengthened as the task before whoever is in charge is so unwinnable it's unimaginable anyone can turn it around from here. If I was Corbyn I'd not want to be anywhere near the negotiating table. Let the Tories make a mess of it and be unelectable for at least a decade.

One thing to point out is that EFTA members aren't likely to let us join their little club if that was the direction we tried to take. The freedom of movement thing means that no way will May ever try to join EFTA in any case.

The fact that the government is likely to survive the no confidence vote after today's catastrophic defeat shows just what sort of a corner the Tories have painted themselves into.

Not much different for Labour, for that matter. In the event of a general election, if they backed a second referendum, they would almost certainly win the popular vote by a decent amount but might well lose the election itself because so many Labour seats voted leave!

As i said before, May was thrown the hand grenade by Cameron, and none of the other grasping ar$eholes who want to be PM in the Tory party are going to throw their hat into the ring until all this dies down. Boris desperately wants to be P.M., but he's too smarmy an operator to make his move now, while the Tories are so weak and at risk of losing an election.

Have to say that when the chips have been down and the country desperately needs guidance and leadership, most politicians have been found wanting. They love it when it's smooth sailing and they can go about their business of self interest and self promotion, but this crisis has just shown that ultimately, the worst kind of unqualified people end up running the country. I don't know what's worse, what we have here, or Trump in America. Not much in it for me.

Still, it's all the fault of the immigrants.

The thing I love about this is how both leaders have lost control and how parliament is flexing its muscles aided and abetted by the irascible speaker. Long may it continue where like minded politicians band together and pursue an independent course of action. Corbyn and may are becoming increasingly irrelevant in this.its members of the cabinet, the speaker the committee chairs and the 'sensible heads' on the backbenchers who hopefully will take centre stage

No second referendum. No fooking People’s vote ffs . We already had it . If Europe and our shi.tearse politicians can’t find a deal then let’s just hard brexit. I don’t trust all these think tanks who predict what will happen on pivotal moments. How many have they actually got right ?!! The people have voted , let’s just get on with it now .

I voted remain in the referendum btw .

There speaks the voice of someone who won’t lose his job in a hard Brexit, unlike tens of thousands of others. Nice position to be in, not having to face any consequences. If only everyone was a lucky as you.

Then why would you make out you’re happy to see other people fuckked and potentially fuckk yourself? Makes no sense to me at all.

What solid evidence have you got that would happen?
