Brexit

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

Should the United Kingdom remain a member of the European Union or leave the European Union?

I disagree with that completely, there's a huge number of reasons which even a strong government would struggle to navigate successfully, and even if they did I just don't see how we could ever be in a stronger position than staying. It's just a bad idea from the start.

EU managed to do this:

Brexit Impact Studies

The European Parliament has commissioned dozens of impact assessments or studies on Brexit from experts, across a broad range of policy areas, which are publicly available online. This webpage will be regularly updated to include further relevant publications.

We're somehow incapable of doing the same, or maybe certain people just don't want to face the truth and make it public.

I saw the comments on a Telegraph article and everyone there seemed to be of the position that these studies are all wrong anyway and you can't predict the future. So this whole thing is an unimportant distraction.

I see this being dragged out to the point where the public no longer has an apatite for it, it's like watching a car crash in slow motion.

The problem is I don't think the government would recognise if public opinion has changed. I'm confident that a vote now would be majority remain but I don't see it happening.

Looks like the government was going to lose the vote on the amendment to protect the Good Friday Agreement:


Last minute save from further embarrassment.

Should've kept the vote, if only to see which MPs would basically vote against the GFA

Trying to find a David Davis comic posted itt recently where he is not paying attention to the EU guys. Can anyone help?

Fake edit it's not the one where he gets taken to the good place by a duck but is the same illustrator

Theresa May's banged the drum of "will of the people" for long enough now, and their scattergun approach (intentional or not) is showing that there's simply no workable solution without wrecking the country.

She should have asked him what he thought of JRM, as he wants them released and is a leaver.
