Juncker was wanting to Punish us, now he says the EU isn't hostile to us

They'll be paying us to leave next and giving us a good  deal :)

I must admit I've somewhat lost interest in the Brexit-pessimistic news stories, and indeed the Brexit-optimistic ones as well. For one thing they seem more or less to be balancing each other out and for another, the decision is taken now and like Douglas Carswell, I'm confident that the government is going to honour it properly.

...after another GE has been my long held view

Slim

As far as I can tell at the moment, the government has the necessary support to see it through already, though I don't doubt that it could increase it with a GE - especially given that it would only commit to one with a fair probability of increasing its majority. But I can't see a need for one in the next two years.

"Any deal must include a strong relationship with the EU and the exact same benefits the UK has from the single market, Sir Keir Starmer said."

Ridiculous, because he knows quite well that we won't get all of the single market's benefits without its obligations, and such a state of affairs would amount to a wholesale betrayal of the voters. Happily, Labour can't now obstruct or prevent Brexit. But they might be able to ensure we leave the EU without a deal in place.

I doubt the electors want to see the government's hands tied in these negotiations so if there were indeed to be an election, we might be able to clean out even more Labour seats.

Happy Days :D

Sorry - that's a hysterical, ridiculous piece from start to finish IMO. Pure remoaner panty-wetting in classic GraunIad style.

It's a moot point but that was actually an editorial from The Observer.


Excellent piece too, encapsulating all that's wrong with Brexit.  May is pandering to the Europhobes in her party and in the media at an enormous cost to the UK
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

She's fulfilling the instruction of the voters in full and proper spirit; nothing to do with Europhobes in her own party.

I don't agree, but we've been round those houses a few times already.

Make the most of today, it was good while it lasted.
Everybody's got to evalate from the norm.

Slim

I'll start making the most of it in two years' time. Very much looking forward to it.

Peter Bone on the BBC's lamentable pro-EU bias. We must fix this if their coercion-based funding model is to continue.
