PS May has finally done what should have happened in 2016, and that is consult the other parties. This change in policy (ie leaving the EU) is the biggest thing to happen for decades and whatever course we take should be a decision in the national interest.

I think what Parliament has been doing for the last couple of weeks, debating all the options is a good sign, and something our elected representatives should be doing.

Finally, finally, the PM is realising.

Quoted from grimsby pete
Corbyn  has been called a Marxist by at least 2 MP's today so there must be some truth in there somewhere.


Notice how this 'Corbyn is a Marxist' meme has suddenly appeared out of nowhere. It hasn't been heard (or at least I can't remember reading it anywhere) until the past few days and now we have Tory MPs left, right and centre calling him a Marxist every time they appear in the media. There has obviously been a memo sent out by Tory High Command.

The start of some electioneering, perhaps?

It's quite comical to see, in fact. Even those Tory Ministers supportive of May's deal are having a go at Corbyn whilst welcoming the 'discussions'! I suppose it's no different from their negotiating tactics with the EU which have worked out so well.

As a rule, it's not a good idea to slag off somebody publicly when you're reliant on their goodwill.

Even if he is a Marxist he is not actually asking for full-blown Marxism. He's more or less asking for something similar to what we have now. The revolutionaries are not him but the Brexiteers who want to scrap huge chunks of our economic system and rewrite 40 years of laws. They are the ones who want to play with our jobs and prosperity based upon pure theory (as the works of Marx were), not someone who is trying to hang on to as much of the status quo as he can.

May asking for an extension to the end of June. Presumably she would only need that much time if an election and / or referendum is going to be squeezed in?

What's the word they are using.... a flextension?  

It's unbelievable how long this process is taking and every day no matter what goes on in parliament with the politicians,  there's no real movement.

Brexit is becoming more and more like our new ground project

Ludicrous for all these Tory Breixteers to call Corbyn a Marxist. They're just as extreme in their own way.

And Brexiteers are always telling us everyone is entitled to their opinion. Translation, 'everyone is entitled to their opinion if they want the same sort of Brexit that I want. And if I don't get it now I'll sthcweam and sthcweam and sthcweam.'

They also said he was a Russian spy, and look where that ended - one MP having to pay a 5-figure sum in damages (donated to a food bank) and make a public apology for the baseless smear.

We actually be interested to hear a Marxist critique of Corbyn’s policies from some of these people throwing the term about. My guess is they know absolutely jaff all about Marxism and could do even less in applying it to Corbyn’s moderate social-democratic policies.
