This could be it. They've been kicking the can down the road for so long, we all knew this was coming.

Also M26 closure is happening. Lorry carparks? No one knows.

They are not wrong either, if Northern Ireland gets it, then why shouldn't Scotland? They voted Remain as well.

The Welsh can strawberry float off though, they voted to Leave just like England did. :lol:


Welsh people claim it's all the English people that tipped the vote towards leave.


They also claim you can have an entire language using only the letter “L”.

Don’t ever trust them.

Wales to me seem rather pointless, they might as well just call themselves English. The only Welshman of any note was St Patrick and even he couldn't stand it over there.

Only winding you up man, Wales is grand.


I wouldn't say that. But when you say notable people and you forget me I get sad.

It does feel like this has to finally be it. A decision has to be made and it'll probably bring down this government no matter which way it goes.

Theresa May has survived for so much longer than anybody expected that it almost now feels like she’ll be there for another 20 years.

May will cling on for as long as her party allows her to. I expect she'll be gone sometime around Brexit day.

Work has begun to turn a motorway in south east England into a “parking lot” for lorries as part of a plan to prevent traffic chaos in the event of a no-deal Brexit, a senior MP said Thursday.

The plan, which was not disclosed to local councillors or MPs until hours before work began on Wednesday, will see the M26 motorway closed overnight for more than a month in the run-up to Christmas while the roadworks take place.

I can't believe we are literally building a car park for lorries in Kent. Brexit is beyond strawberry floating stupid. Give it a few years and nobody will admit to having voted for this strawberry floating nonsense.

Police still not investigating Leave campaigns, citing ‘political sensitivities’
Exclusive: Months after Scotland Yard received ‘substantial’ evidence of potential criminality by pro-Leave groups, nothing has happened. Is the police probe destined for the political long-grass?

The Metropolitan Police has stalled the launch of any criminal investigation into three pro-Brexit campaigns – citing “political sensitivities”, openDemocracy can reveal today. Despite being handed their first dossier of evidence of potential crimes committed by pro-Leave groups over five months ago, the police force has made no progress nor logged a formal case into the activities of either Vote Leave, fronted by Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, or Leave.EU, the pro-Brexit campaign bankrolled by Arron Banks.

In May and July this year, the UK Electoral Commission reported that multiple breaches of electoral law, false declarations and covert campaign over-spending had taken place by pro-Leave groups during the 2016 EU referendum.

Substantial fines were levied, and the Electoral Commission’s reports and all related evidence were shared with Scotland Yard and the National Crime Agency. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) was then expected to investigate whether key individuals, including Leave.EU’s campaign chief, Liz Bilney; Vote Leave’s board official, David Halsall; and the founder of BeLeave, Darren Grimes, had committed related criminal offences.

Following inquiries by openDemocracy, the Met revealed it has yet to start any formal investigation, and has remained effectively stalled for months in “assessing evidence”. Pushed on why there has been no progress, or no formal case logged, a Scotland Yard spokesman admitted there were issues and “political sensitivities” that had to be taken into account. The Yard spokesman later added that the political issues related to “any allegation or referral relating to an election, and much else besides.”
