Brexit

Fed up talking videogames? Why?

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

May earlier on Brexit

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-43577208

She replied: "Of course when we leave the European Union, we'll no longer be spending vast sums of money, year in and year out, sending that money to the European Union, so there will be money available here in the UK to spend on our priorities like the NHS and schools."


Well she’s not lying, there will be money for the nhs and schools, but it just might be less than it is currently. Statements like this are just misleading and non committal. But some will take it that it validates their point that the uk will be better off with Brexit and have more money as we are not sending billions to kostas in Greece and luigi in Italy.

I respect those 12% who admit "I dunno" more than the 41% who are so grossly, embarrassingly ignorant that they think everything's going fine.

Those 11% must have some sort of brain injury. I really don't see how, even with red, white and blue tinted glasses, you could consider the last 18 months as improving our Brexit prospects.

strawberry floating fuckety strawberry float. We are so screwed.
It's interesting that more Labour voters want someone else to do Brexit instead of Corbyn. Though on the Tory side it seems there aren't that many thinking "neither because I want Mogg/Boris".

Further backs up my theory that only cold hard reality is going to make people realise what a terrible idea this has been.

Who knows, maybe being slapped out of their complacency will do the electorate some good.

The EU is obviously not going to change all it's rules just to keep the UK happy, it would mean every country they currently have any kind of agreement with would have to benefit from those changes as well as be compensated for being dealt with in bad faith previously.

This seems to Norway reminding the EU that they won't stay quiet if the rules aren't applied to the UK (i.e no exceptions are to be made).

The EU have given us until 18th April to come up with a solution to the Irish border or they're going to demand the backstop option of full regulatory alignment.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... ish-border

Pressure is on Britain to come up with a plan by the 18 April stocktake. Unless a solution acceptable to both sides is found, the EU will insist on the backstop option of full regulatory alignment north and south of the border, something May has said she will not tolerate.
