    The politics thread

    Interesting how Labour leadership and Tories have spun the vote for remain parties in the local elections as a "call to get on with Brexit". Nope. Not even fucking close.

    As a remain voter, Tory incompetence has been the only glimmer of hope since the vote in 2016.

    I'm not convinced by the argument that the EU has punished the UK. It is a rules based organization (we helped define those rules - we knew those rules) and EU simply sticks to them as it was always going to do - as we would have expected were it another nation deciding to leave. We knew this before people voted to leave.

    Many have flipped over to May's awful deal now though.

    Cars should have been speed limited for decades. About time. Motorists simply can't be trusted to drive safely so time to put them on the naughty step. Looks like UK has confirmed it will align to the same standard even after brexit.

    Farage stated on the night of the referendum that if remain had won, Vote Leave would be campaigning immediately for another referendum. We are the laughing stock right now. Half the planet already hates Britain and the British and now the other half is laughing at us in pity.

    So it seems Mogg really has jumped ship to Mays terrible deal - and you wonder if a lot more will follow. The worst possible deal for brexiters I think and very little to savour for remainers either. Jesus what a car crash.

    That deal was in the making for 20 years and really took about 10 once they really go into it - and it was scheduled to go live in 2019 regardless of Brexit. UK were absolutely key in the negotiations due to our close ties via the motor and tech industries. You don't just spin up a trade deal on the back of a fag packet. Leaving the customs union takes us out of the Japan deal as well (which now forms the planet's largest and most powerful trade bloc). Also if we leave the customs union we cannot get a better deal than the EU in terms of trade with Japan. And not just because we will be minnows in comparison to the EU, but because it is written into the trade deal itself. Leaving the customs union takes us out of trade deals with roughly half the nations on planet Earth. Just how big do you think our Civil Service is? Or how competent for that matter to deliver trade deals in a reasonable time frame? Answer - they are not. I suspect it would take 40 or 50 years. And what has the EU (which is us at the moment too) done that is so bad to you?

    It was an over simplified question because there was no clue about what leave actually meant. The illustration of this is that May's deal satisfies the referendum as we will have left the EU. So if that deal technically satisfies the terms, then it shows us what a shit show of a question it was.

    We now just have to wait to see what comes of the indicative votes process to test the waters to see if they can get any sort of consensus in Parliament about what to do next.

    Looks like Rees-Mogg is coming out for Mays awful awful deal - a deal which really just removes us from the decision making processes in Brussels but keeps almost everything else the same. The deal he said turns the UK into a slave state. Jesus he's a monumental bellend.

    The problem with the leave result is that no-one agrees what that means. Now a few people with their heads in the sand will just spout "leave means leave" and will be banging on about no-deal being the default. However, let's not pretend that we can expect Parliament to allow that. It would be a utter catastrophe for the UK and its people - particularly the most vulnerable. The rich will weather the storm, those less well off will not. I have now seen a good portion my own company's no-deal plans as they have been released from non-disclosure at my level as I need to be involved from an IT infrastructure point of view. It is utterly depressing. The job losses and money/business being moved to the EU is eye watering. The £39bn we will save by not paying the EU is small change, put it that way.
  13. We won't make the playoffs but we should give MON a lot more time.

    Apart from Cameron being a c*nt and starting this whole shambles to save his own skin, the mess here has been caused entirely by how the referendum was run. It was utter lunacy to take the most complex decision this nation has ever taken and reduce it down to some stupid 12 word question in the referendum. What should have happened is for Parliament to first AGREE on a potential exit plan for the EU and then put that exit plan alongside remain into a referendum. The referendum we had was little better than "hey guys shall we make everything utterly amazing, or not." An empty useless question and because the question was so useless rather than genuine debate we got horseshit promises and outright lies.

    She broke him gradually but yes he was weak to start with. She is a complete psychopath and probably picked him out because she thought he was exploitable. She is a vile excuse for a human. I fear for that man and his family when she gets out in a few years.
