    Re: No Deal

    I heard mention today (on the radio show Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me) that the royal birth was received with such excitement because it was nice to see that at least one Brit was able to successfully exit something. That line was met with much laughter.

    Is this the calm before the storm expected 23 May?

    It has gone deathly silent over the last couple of weeks hasn't it. The only player who seems to be appearing in the media is Nasty Nigel (I slept through his Andrew Marr appearance but I gather it was pretty fraught).

    Re: No Deal

    Nothing is happening which is why its quiet, supposedly there are cross party talks going on but we all know they are a nonsense.

    As for 23rd MAY, even if as expected Nigel's Brexit party gets the most votes at the European election what does that Change exactly?

    We cant even use the Euro election to get a clear idea as to the numbers of who is voting for and against Brexit as Labour are sitting so hard on the fence you could put there votes in either or both columns.

    I feel like until something actually changes that matters i have kind of lost interest for the moment, it wont stop my voting but any conversation i have about Brexit just feels like a repeat of the previous.

    Ok just after i say that Something happened, looks like the Prime Minister once she loses her latest vote on the withdrawal agreement will set a timetable for her resignation, i expect she will be out now by the end of June!

    Nah, we'll have a referendum on it first. Then there'll be a bunch of Therexit delays. Eventually she'll be left living a granny-annex at no 10 with no say in who does the housekeeping or where she's allowed to do her food shopping.

    At some point it must all begin to resemble a meaningless drama carried out for the benefit of the masses while the real governing goes on in some small smoke-filled room in Zurich or Brussels.

    Your mistake is in assuming that real governing is going on at all.

    Yeah, call me an optimist. Reality might be even scarier.

    Ah but our Theresa is firmly against a referendum, she said so many times...... and she has never ever ever changed her mind, or not done what she said she would or repeated a meaningless slogan.

    Re: No Deal

    Hold the front page - stop the press! Labour have just announced that they have pulled out of Brexit x-party talks with the Tories - blaming the Tories as they wouldn't concede to labour demands (as if they ever would).

    Well, that was always likely to happen - no surprise there then.

    PS May has agreed her departure date (latest end of July) and a new Tory leader will be in place by the time of the Party Conference in the Autumn.

    PPS Boris has announced he is standing as a candidate for the new Tory Party leader - definitely no surprise there!

    Mrs May has now outlined, to great fanfare, her 10-point plan to rescue 'Brexit'...

    Re: No Deal

    Is there a plan? I haven't heard a word in a long time. Frankly, it either baffles or amazes me, and I can't decide which. The cynical view is that once the deadline got pushed back, the sense of urgency went away and nothing will happen until the deadline looms...again. It just seemed like SOMEBODY would realize that was a really useless way to do anything...and yet...crickets...

    It's looking like she's about to quit. Took a real hammering today.

    We seem to be under the impression that a) the EU will cave if they feel under pressure and b) that constantly doing nothing and panicking at the last minute is somehow putting the EU under pressure.

    So yeah, not entirely sure what the hell is going on really.

    No matter what those dude's say, we're fearing the reaper, man. Pass the doobie.

    Well, the knives are seriously out. The 1922 committee have taken a secret ballot on whether to change the rules and allow an immediate vote of no confidence but they haven't actually opened the votes - they're holding it as a threat if May refuses to resign. Thing is, it's not even clear whether the 1922 commission has the power to allow that anyway so potentially May could still stick on like a barnacle.
