I have some sympathy for the right wing press who may either have to accept the demon Corbyn as a saviour, or say the Brexit he has helped negotiate is so bad you should vote remain in a deal/remain referendum.

Not a lot of sympathy, of course.

If she’d made BrexShit a cross-party project three years ago, we wouldn’t be in this disastrous dung-heap, and the laughing-stock of the rest of the world, that we are now.

But, of course, she had instructions from others - far wealthier, and thus, far more powerful than her - to obey, which meant she had to keep everyone else, including most of her own government, out of it.

"Mrs May further angered the Tory backbenchers by stating her intentions to work with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to “try to agree a plan". Mr Rees-Mogg slammed Mrs May’s strategy to work with ”a known Marxist” and insisted the public “did not vote for a Corbyn-May coalition Government”. European Research Group chairman also warned the Prime Minister history did not show success for political leaders who tried to get policy through the Commons "on the back of Opposition votes". The leading Brexiteer added this approach is “deeply unsatisfactory” and is “not in the interests of the country”.

Colluding with commie corbyn is going to end in tears for the tories.

The plot thickens. They are setting the stage where each can blame the other for the betrayal of brexit.

"The Prime Minister’s continental counterparts have given her just six days to make her Brexit strategy clear ahead of an emergency summit in Brussels next week. Amid fears of a no-deal Brexit, Europe has urged Mrs May to details on whether she will pursue a hard divorce or a long Article 50 extension. EU leaders’ intervention comes after another failed attempt by MPs in Westminster to build a majority for an alternative Brexit plan last night."

Britain allowed Farage and the now discredited Ukip to run riot a disgraced Party and a swaggering no-nothing

If legislation is forced through by an unaccountable body democracy has ceased and parliament no longer has legitimacy.

The poll above, if accurate, shows a wide divergence of the two camps compared to all other polls over the last two years.
I see we have three choices
crash out no deal
May's treaty trapping us within the EU with no representation
Have a long extension(getting more and more unlikely) and renegotiate with a brand new elected team after an inevitable election.

This is what the endless betrayal and prevarication of MPs has brought us to.

Heaping insults on brexiteers and calling them vermin just shows the total inadequacy of the remainers arguments as they continue to try to frustrate the clearly stated wishes of the majority.

When will all the whining finally stop I wonder?

It seems fairly inevitable from a statement from the EU that unless the marathon 5 hour Cabinet meeting (by a Cabinet that is incapable of finding its own arse with both hands) reaches a decision today, the two alternatives are to crash out or put Brexit on yet another long finger (the latter is very unlikely, the former would be devastating for Britain and its neighbours)
Brexit has drawn out venomous rats by their swarms now, Robinson, Farage and now THESE SCUM
Bastards like these thrive on instability of the kind that Britain is now heading for
We live in dangerous times, to avoid allowing the vermin feeding on a leadership incapable of leading and a people who are rapidly reaching the point of simply not caring, something has to be done - and quick

"Steve,
Don't agree with your take on a second vote
A survey has already indicated that the Remainers have a clear guarantee - if this is not enough, surely none of those who couldn't ae their minds up to vote the first time will not be stupid enough to stay at home after these years long displays of ineptitude..."

Well a survey I read about just yesterday (can't remember for the life of me where I read about it) suggested that remain/leave was at 54%/46% with a lot of undecideds (who weren't included in the totting up). That isn't comfortable at all, I don't think. Many remainers were reluctant remainers, and a good number would see another vote (incorrectly) as an affront to democracy. They might either abstain or even vote leave next time round. On the other hand, I should think that just about every leave voter, and more, would be indignant enough to turn out again next time round. And the leave campaign would be the joker in the pack. You can just see it now: democracy betrayed, the will of the people thwarted...all bollocks, but incredibly hard to counteract.

I wouldn't argue against another vote on these grounds just because I think the result would be the wrong one, but, let's face it, whatever the result it would be another close-run thing, and a narrow remain victory would foment huge trouble. On top of that, I can't bring myself ever to want any referendum about anything at all.

obviously all very depressing. at no point has any conservative politician ever had the courage to stand up to the nicotine-stained fascist man frog or his buddies in the more weird yet dangerous wing of the party. (and labour aren't much better)or the DUP - the idea that these tiny groups of very unpleasant and regressive people are driving the political agenda and causing immense division and conflict in our society is incredible. when farage and his thuggish supporters talk about 'betrayal' and 'treachery' they are deliberately intimidating our mps and all of us who dare to disagree or even attempt to put a bit of nuance into the debate. their like should be prosecuted for hate crimes - and murder in the case of Jo Cox. while in jail they could be forced to watch re-runs of the opening ceremony of the london olympics to remind them of the sort of country that the majority of us would prefer. and made aware that this is the country that raised them - not the grubby, wee bitter, little england with it's racism, greed,hunting and their sneering contempt of all who try to live in a happier, more positive, way.

A Civil Rights Group in Northern Ireland has now drawn attention to Northern Ireland born citizens living in the Republic and how Brexit's Brave New World will affect their rights and the progress of The Belfast agreement and the Peace Process

In a worse-case scenario - if the second vote was to leave, at least there would be no doubt of that fact
The lying excuse that a second vote would divide the country is hypocritical, undemocratic politicking - it would do just the opposite
May has suggested that the British people are incapable of accepting a Democratically arrived at decision with her insulting suggestion

My mistake, sorry.

You may well be right about a second referendum. The more it is seen as rerun of the first, rather than a different question, the more open it is to manipulation. That is one reason I have always thought this really needs to be resolved in Parliament, but they appear unwilling to do so. I doubt if a general election will help either. Labour have kept a good focus on things that really matter to people - jobs, education, the NHS - but as Larkin would say the toad Brexit squats on their manifesto too, and I see no good way round that.

An even more useless ploy would be a snap election. It would solve absolutely nothing.

I am coming to the point of view that an election is precisely what is required. The present nest of vipers in the commons need to be reminded forcefully that the electorate expects them to honour their promises.
The referendum result requires implementation, otherwise democracy is destroyed and the executive betrays the trust of the people.
   A reset is the only way forward.
Farage for PM and Rees Mogg as foreign secretary would make me very happy.

The war of Independance in America was fought on the basis of no taxation without representation. Therefore I would argue for as long as we make payments to the EU we maintain our seats in the EU parliament. To act in any other way smacks of reparations for a war we have not lost. Mays withdrawal treaty suffers from the same problem and must not stand.

I'm becoming more certain by the day that remain would lose another referendum. Too few people have changed their minds and there will be a backlash from indignant people who might be remain-minded but who would see another vote as being an insult to democracy. There would also be a lot of abstaining or just not bothering. And the leave campaign would be toxic. That worked last time and they would hold even more populist cards this time. An even more useless ploy would be a snap election. It would solve absolutely nothing.

Correction - the quote was from another rabid BrexShiteer, David Davis, not Liam Fox. But it's still just as ironic, bearing in mind that Right Wing Extremist BrexShiteers are apparently completely incapable of understanding such a simple concept.

"A democracy that cannot change its mind ceases to be a democracy"
Liam Fox, former Brexit Secretary, 2012.

Such a simple, easily understood concept (unless you happen to be a Right-Wing Extremist, apparently).

I>And they refuse the people a second vote !!!!!!!!

A rather silly remark. If the first vote of the people in the recent referendum is ignored, what notice would be taken of a second?

In a democracy the winner wins(or is supposed to) Why do leftards require that this very simple concept be explained to them repeatedly.

Does their socialist sense of entitlement make them think the majority csn be ignored and over ridden? Their constant whining is getting tiresome.

This is very similar to democrats trying to depose the President on all sorts of trumped up charges.

I guess that will be a rolling date in the algorithm. Pretty much like the date for brexit :-)

But there is something called 'common sense', which the vast majority of us here have

Yes indeed. And Excel's algorithm (for example), of treating 00-29 as 2000-2029 and 30-99 as 1930-1999 is an attempt to implement that common sense interpretation.

"Oh, I wasn't. I am afraid when someone has the choice of admitting they made a mistake and instead works hard to explain how it must be someone else in error however foolish it makes them look, it is obvious that any further discussion on the point is futile."

Yep, I completely agree. Sadly, some people's need to 'win' over-rides everything else, so they indulge in picking smaller and smaller nits, and thus making themselves appear increasingly ridiculous.

"No, I was interested in whether there actually are any international standards for interpreting two digit years. That was completely independent to discussing the specific example.   In short, there isn't. unless the contest is 100% clear. In a book talking about the Napoleonic Wars, for example, the century would be clearly understood in most cases."

But there is something called 'common sense', which the vast majority of us here have, with one or two notable, nit-picking exceptions.
