    Brexit 2019

    He's got plenty of policies, but to name a few, cause embarrassment to both the major parties, create chaos in the eu parliament, ensure the Tories elect a leader who will pursue a proper Brexit, once rid of the useless May. I could go on but you get the picture.

    I must admit, I do have a little sympathy for the eu position, that was so eloquently made by Verhofstadt recently. Irrespective of whether you are for or against Brexit, the current situation is a little dire and needs sorting. Imagine the eu frustration, when having run out of time, the UK asks for more, and when it is reluctantly given, the first thing our useless MPs do, is use the time to go on holiday. Priceless.

    No and no. What we won't get is any of the benefits to Brexit unless we actually do Brexit. What we have ended up with is going to result in remainers ensuring that we are stuck in some middle of the road position, without the benefits of being in or out. Well done remainers.

    No, what you have been watching is parliamentary sovereignty, defying the public wish to return to national sovereignty. Quite convenient for remainers to confuse the two.

    Brexit 2019

    I know, it's comical really. Macron is a peacock, I just wish a brexiteer with access to the media would go on the news and ridicule his posturing, and dare him to use his veto. You never know, his hubris may have forced him to do it. Why is a customs union and the Withdrawal Treaty the best way forward. The former prevents us from having an independent trade policy, complying with rules we do not make, and the WT hands more power to the eu than they currently have. It's a rubbish idea on all levels.

    No we won't, because once we have left, if we ever do, we can ignore them.

    I don't really need to tell you anything, it is a simple statement of fact, that the DUP want to immediately return to Stormont, in order to debate and discuss issues relating to the governance of NI, but Sinn Fein are refusing to do so. An interesting point of view was made a few days ago, that Sinn Fein may well have an ulterior motive, for not wanting to return to Stormont. Sin Fein want to unite Ireland, but this may prove more difficult to achieve, if there is a functioning government in NI.

    Unless I am seriously mistaken, which for the avoidance of doubt, I'm not, it is Sinn Fein that are refusing to restart the devolved government. But I suspect you know that, it just doesn't fit with your, everything the UK does is wrong attitude.

    No, it would just show some members of the eu, that there is a price to pay for their mischief making. I stopped buying anything from Eire about a year ago. I haven't gone without, I have simply ensured my money has gone to producers in the U.K instead. Perhaps if a few more people did the same, that puffed up pillock Varadkar would get the message.

    Sadly after today's stunning announcement from our very own dear leader, Brexit ain't happening.

    Brexit 2019

    Yes, it's that place this country, together with some allies, has rescued at least three times in the past. Now it makes a rather nice holiday location, but if they make it too difficult once we leave the eu, there are other places to go.

    Brexit 2019

    You keep asking the same point, and it has been explained a number of times. The reason I suspect most brexiteers don't want another referendum is because if there were to be one, the question would be between the PMs deal or remain. In the eyes of brexiteers both these options amount to remain. Therefore another referendum is really just a smokescreen to thwart leaving the eu.

    Brexit 2019

    Not so, I have had plenty of input since the referendum, regularly lobbying my MP, who I'm very pleased to say, agrees with my take on the situation, and consequently has voted against this appalling deal cooked up by the PM, despite being whipped to do so. He even emailed me on one occasion to ask if I had a legal reference to a point I was making, and I duly provided it, which supported his position further. MPs are our representatives, and they can only do that if you let them know what your views are. Perhaps if more people got involved directly, rather than just putting a cross in a box every five years, things would be different.
