    Dunt and DAG make the brexitshambles almost worthwhile.

    The problem with a referendum now is that the lies / manipulation / russian bots etc will be so much worse, having shown already how well it works. Even now there are MPs like McVey and Kawczynski spouting not just ill-considered arguments, but outright lies and false propaganda without a shred of shame or apology. The campaigns would be poisonous.
    Would be better if we could have a snap referendum - say next thursday.

    Sorry - not what I meant. Revoke would be absolutely my preference - above a referendum. The shitty part is that I can't see it happening. Even though no deal would be demonstrably worse for the country, 'the will of the people' would somehow trump it.

    Barnier confirms no extension will be granted without a good reason. There won't be anything that can be agreed - no-one will compromise.

    We're going to be left with no deal or revoke aren't we? This is so shitty.

    No deal seems pretty sure to be voted down.
    Extension will probably be passed.
    EU won't allow a short extension as that just leaves another cliff edge, but May will want exactly that to get her deal passed for a third time.

    So a longer extension for a GE or referendum. Or revoke. Or don't sort anything and leave with no deal by default by accident.
    Still looking grim.

    I'm interested to see if there is an election who would run on what platform. Presumably Corbyn would run on leave still... Which would let the tories in again. Unless they split as well. Strange times.

    Stubborn, intransigent and self-serving. The only reason she is in the job she has failed at more than any other PM is that no-one else wants it while it's so completely poisonous.
    She's done nothing constructive for the country and has purely focused on holding together her party and trying to stay in power while prevaricating over the most important political process in a generation.
    Every day she stays I hold her more in contempt.

    Looked like he got carted off by the rozzers, but not entirely clear what was going on with that one.

    Bunch of neanderthals. Jack rising above it - nice to see goals coming from him as well as everything else.

    Just got my new passport back and it's fucking RED. I am livid. What about the will of the people?? Now everyone will think I'm some sort of remoaner till 2029. Thanks you unelected EU faceless bureaucrats - where's my sovereignty?
