Financial times   pundit on PM just now reckons the Endgame will be flexibility from the EU on freedom of movement because that is what the vote was all about.  We will be in a customs union but it will be called a "variant" thus enabling us to tell the voters we are out of the EU and out of "The" customs union. This is precisely what Sir Keir Starmer ( The next labour leader) has been saying all along.

And there you have it. You can thank me later. Check it out in the White Paper that will be presented next Friday.

Plenty left to row about. And it will more than likely cost us money. And we will not have any say in the European parliament.

And it will take at least a decade to sign off on all the details.

A pig with lipstick. It's what the civil service want, business as usual. They have been tying to soften us up with blatant media bias over the past two years. Does May think the electorate won't notice? She would be opening the door again to UKIP and possibly much worse. It would also undermine any remaining trust in politicians and the failing democratic process.

I find it weird that I am more in agreement with you than almost anyone on here.

Yet we our standpoints are opposite.

Don't you see that its not up to me and thee what happens. You can  (as they say on youtube) "Destroy" me. But the powerful will do what they have decided to do. And they certainly know exactly what it is. Its far too late in the day to think they are not organised. The disorganised  clowns in parliament are the side show smoke screen.

The mind numbing boring pantomime that is repeating itself  has a function. Its to anaesthetize, repel and drug the public to sleep. Eventually they will have no idea what's going on and will not care. See Danny Dyer half a million hits in 2 days...…….

I think you will agree that the 2022 election will be hilarious and farcical. Will Farage get involved?

Of course I hope labour knows what its doing with its "Let the Tories hang themselves" game. It had better know when its going to make its move and it had better have a move to make and it had better be unified. I am not holding my breath.

Who-ever voted for Corbyn for "reasons of balance" or summat where nearly as mistaken as Cameron with his Brexit referendumm. But it sure as hll shook things up a lot. Corbyn and Mcdonell have no more chance of changing the world than any other politicians. Jez is dim but I have hoped that McDonnell understood the likes of Varoufakis and Paul Mason. Not so sure now.


I am a fan of Sir Keir Starmer for purely pragmatic reasons. He is the most competent leadership candidate in any of the parties.

We are not having a revolution Paul Mason states that clearly every chance he gets. The coming technological, digital and A.I changes  cannot be stopped and climate change is a threat to us all including the plutocrats. Nowt wrong with working together for everyone's benefit. Capitalism does not need small nation states. Note the UNITED STATES of America.Also Varoufakis, Mason and others like Steve Keen have an awareness of issues related to debt that few others show. Capitalism needs fixing and I do not see why everyone cannot work together on that. Sorting Europe out is good practice for uniting the world. A unified world is the only way Human kind can realise its potential. The alternative is stagnation and possible disaster or even reverse evolution into tin pot warring fascist nation states.

Three key things are essential for Brexit:

1. End of ECJ telling us what to do.
2. End of free movement of people from the EU.
3. Be able to do trade deals with whoever we like.

If the Tories up on those principals then Brexit was a waste of time because we will still be controlled by the unelected EU.

this is another example - ignoring the realities of unit size (65m UK market size versus 500m EU market size) our nationalist forumite makes his weak as pi55 argument using the idea that "our needs" (on a trade deal) are somehow radically different from those of France and Germany.  Accepting the economies of the three nations mentioned have certain differences in balance between various sectors, it's hard to see what's uniquely important about an agriculture/food import for the UK versus the requirements of people who live in France or Germany.

The Remain/Leave question is a judgement about risk/impact/disruption or even improvement.  Nobody made their judgement on this question based on facts because the future is unknown; people made their judgement based on which story or stories they attached themselves to (or actively disliked so much they voted against the other story).

Hugely disappointing but hardly surprising. May,most of the Cabinet and all the advisors are Remainers. They see Brexit as a problem to be managed rather than an opportunity to be grasped.

Remainers made the point before the Referendum that being outside the EU but bound by its rules was a bad position to be in. That was a perfectly valid point then and continues to be now. We voted , in the greatest democratic exercise this country has undertaken, to withdraw. Having done so the best Brexit surely has to be a clean Brexit.


To think that a Conservative Government has hitched itself to the rules of an organisation that believes in the"big" government model is baffling.


There are some suggestions tonight that Cabinet Brexiteers are relying on the EU rejecting the offer. That's pretty high stakes poker.


All in all a shameful day.

If they go through with this  and if there is also a fudge on immigration and free movement of people it is the greatest act of treason ever committed in Britain and parliament will have no legal or moral right to govern , or pass laws , or collect  tax etc over anyone living in Britain , the people in parliament will be criminals who should spend the rest of their lives in a British prison

Nicely put Kublai and First Timer. Isn't it refreshing to see that the truth is clear simple and fantasy free.

As David Davis resigns saying we have already given too much away.

As Gove admits that we are probably going to make more concessions.

As The Tories move ever closer to Sir Keir Starmers long held well thought out crystal clear plan.

As more and more leavers are saying; all the above plans leave us worse off than if we stay in the EU.


Isn't about time we had a referendum on the governments description of the Brexit that Brexit means. The binary choice..... accept the governments idea of Brexit or stay precisely where we are..... IN THE EU.

Closely followed by a general election with Sir Keir Starmer as Labours offering for PM.

What is the referendum choice?

A. Accept the Chequers deal after the EU water it down or:
B. Take full control of our laws, trade policy and immigration policy.

We already voted to leave the EU.

A new choice, if we have one, would have to be how we leave.

Now cometh the game changer. Now cometh the clown. or is he the trickster King ala Trump.

Now cometh the resignation of Boris. He has not quit just to blow raspberries from the back benches.

Its a leadership challenge innit.

Is there going to be a leadership contest?

Tony Blair seems to be pulling the strings in Labour again,fudge and delay with a stooge like Starmer,then another referendum to say Remain.I do suspect there is a lot going on in the background that Davis and Johnson may open up on now.
