Quote from: The Letter R on August 01, 2019, 09:17:46 amI'm no grand supporter of Boris but will give him a couple of months and see what he does with the mess we're in.If he can get a better deal out of the EU I will be very surprised - best I can think is a fudge on the TM deal over the backstop. Personally I can see us still being in the EU at Christmas......The main problem I have with him is that although he can at times talk a good game I never know if I can believe him or if indeed he believes himself at times......
Quote from: döm on August 01, 2019, 15:56:39 pmUnfortunately the backstop will be a problem. The Good Friday agreement which has maintained relative peace in Northern Ireland for the last couple of decades and which all parties have agreed will be maintained is dependent on no border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.Leaving without a deal and on WTO terms necessitates a border between the 2 countries. Boris Johnson will need to be a genius to square that circle. If he manages it kudos to him!
Quote from: Matt2112 on July 31, 2019, 09:15:50 amHilary Benn May be a remainer but as far as I can tell he accepts the result and I've only ever seen a pragmatic and dignified stance on his part. If in any way he intends to undermine the result then I think he is profoundly wrong to hold that position. But he doesn't strike me as having a Swinson-esque zeal to sabotage the vote come what may.Look at Hilary Benn in the round though and he's a genuinely progressive and liberal politician who serves his constituency extremely well. He's wasted in a party led by Corbyn.
