The sensible thing to have done following the referendum would have been consultations to decide what sort of exit we would be looking for. Not even most of the Brexiteers said anything about the customs union during the referendum campaign, for instance.

If parliament had spent some time working out exactly what they were going to try and negotiate before actually invoking Article 50, then there might have been a 'better' outcome. At least it wouldn't have been so chaotic with the clock running down in this manner.

Edit: I should add that it's not just the fault of the Tories in this regard as Labour were calling for Article 50 to be invoked straight away as well.

They all got it wrong.

I read this brexit analogy today.....

We've all been on a night out with a mate who says,"it's sh*t here, let's go somewhere else..".
Then, when you leave, you realise that he has no idea where to go, and the place you just left won't let you back in. The UK is standing in a kebab shop at 3am, arguing about who's fault it is.

Sort of analogy you hear from someone who has never been anywhere, seen anything or done anything in their sad remoaner life.

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

So it turns out Brexit wasn’t about sovereignty, taking control of laws and borders or being free from the tyranny of the EU and was in fact about certain Tory MPs personal gain. Who would have thought that would be the case?

I am yet to see a proposal that is better than the arrangement we have now. That's the fundamental problem the house has, I suspect.

The house is more positive about a customs union or a public vote on the deal than they are on the deal itself.

I don’t understand why MPs are so against a re-run of a referendum with facts attached. It’s win/win. If they’re so certain that the will of the people is to leave it’ll win at a canter even if it was May’s deal vs remain. If remain wins then they’ve misread the will of the people and are corrected. Either way they’ve absolved themselves of any blame and they can go on robbing a living from the taxpayer. Whatever democracy is in this country the last few months in the Commons absolutely has not been a democracy that anyone in this country voted for in 2017.
