So we all know by now that a few years ago we Brits went to the poles and by a margin of only 1.7% (just over a million votes) decided that it would be a good idea to divorce from our European cousins and go it alone. Two years down the line and we are walking with every increasing speed to our demise as a nation state and are now faced with the devastating consequences of that decision.

Just about every week we see some kind of new news about the devastation that Brexit will cause, we had the recent news about a predicted 8% reduction in economic growth plunging us into the deepest of the deep recessions. Some are even talking about economic collapse. Then there is the issue of the Irish boarder, we have the NHS stockpiling medication, there are doubts about security, there could be chaos at the border. The list really does go on and while some are a little optimistic it’s not looking good.

Our options out of this mess are limited, in two years the best May and her government can come up with is two resignations from Brexit ministers, one foreign ministers’ resignation and a massive backbench backlash against a deal that is in pretty much no one’s interests. Regardless if you voted leave or remain one thing is very clear the deal that May and her government have put together is awful, it’s never going to pass in parliament and that’s going to create some problems for us Brits.

If it fails to pass then there isn’t really any time left to strike up a new deal and the EU are basically saying “this is the best you’re going to get, take it or leave it”. The simple maths of parliament clearly demonstrates that May has about as much chance of getting this through parliament as the “Ban on Tea imports act of 2014”. So if it fails to pass parliament she can’t commit the UK into agreement with the EU’s plan and….well….that’s not good.

So a few options.

Let’s have a no-confidence vote and boot out May, put Boris in charge. Only that won’t fix anything because we still don’t have the time to renegotiate a new deal so all it would do is leave us with a baffoon of a PM leading the country into the worst crisis we have faced since WWII.

Okay then so what else, well we could have a general election but that creates the same problems as PM Broris taking over.

Right how about we get the public to decide, send them back to the ballot box and ask what they want. Well that takes time that we don’t have because we only have 120 days left to fix this mess.

Right then lets get extreme. Lets just acknowledge that the Breixt vote was only ever an advisory referendum and as such revoke article 50 or delay its implementation until we can get a better deal. Emmmm…that might not work either., its also going to create massive political upheaval in the UK, not to mention that the EU has not only said this is the best deal we will get but they have also been arguing that we can’t take it back. Basically, the EU courts have apparently been discussing this and in their view not only might there not be a legal avenue for this but it would also lead to lots of instability in the EU in the long run and therefore it wouldn’t be in their interests.

So what does that leave us with…..?

Me, I go for the full on economic and political collapse within the first year

Its strange to me that nobody seems to be talking much about this, the fact that if you boil this all down your government is on the verge of a total collapse. We seem to have found ourselves backed into this impossible corner, we are in the ultimate catch 22 with no way out and its all going to come to a head very soon

11/12/18 is the date.

How do you think its going to go down?

The devastation is not the cause of brexit itself, but the cause of you choosing to go that way. Punishment if you will.

Almost like this whole thing wasn't terribly well thought out.

Maybe British stock will be hot buys after this all transpires. Sit on it for a few years and you may be able to make some serious coin.

I can't imagine that whatever happens would be permanent. England has weathered adversity before, so I imagine it will again.

You all existed before the EU, so I can't imagine why you cant after.

Well aren't you all joy and light, although I'm not going to debate your point


Theresa May, no-one wanted her (apart from her own party obviously), no-one voted for her and yet she's in charge of the UK and the negotiations, and I doubt any of the parties will agree on the Brexit deal.

Of course, I don't care about this, in fact hope it happens, Scotland deserves independence

I am sure England will survive, the union might not, us Scots want out more than ever in the face of the Brexit vote, the issue of the boarder makes for a strong case for Irish unification.

Pretty sure England will still remain as it is.

I think the point is that the nations of the UK are going to be far worse off eccomincaoly and in terms of international prowess.

There were predictions of massive economic doom from the Trump tariffs as well. Fear is just how they manipulate you into not upsetting the apple cart. The EU is a massive protectionist bloc and a political machine.

A lot of powerful people and organizations have plenty to lose if Britain moves toward more autonomy and independence. They've been pushing the EU for decades. If the wealthier countries start to see they are able to leave by their own volition, the union potentially collapses. They need the stronger economies to prop up the weaker ones and the Euro. They need to make leaving difficult to keep Germany and France, etc from ever being tempted to walk away in a populist movement in the future. That's what all the additional fines proposed are about. They need the UK, or it becomes shakey.

Rees-mogg for PM.

"Polls" not "Poles"

Sorry, not normally a spelling nazi, but that was driving me up the wall.

"Poll" is when you vote, or give your opinion on how you vote.

"Pole" is something you either fish with, or run a flag up.

Just make sure if you all take that route you aim to become self reliant.

The EU essentially has parent states that carry the weight for the union. Italy and Greece never have to atone for their mistakes, just bail them out.

Even the US has a self reliance problem, although it is one of greed. We could source our own energy, but we wouldn't make money from doing that seeing as the MIC wouldn't get paid out.

Boris is no buffoon. His buffoon act is carefully constructed and maintained. It's all a bit Sun Tzu, 'let your enemies (rivals) think you are weak (foolish) when you are strong (conniving)'.

He has recently been sucking up to the Irish, they seem to have responded positively to him?

Even if he did, he's got no end game.

Their economy is smaller than Texas... What's he going to do now.

How do you think its going to go down?

I think May will lose the vote on the 11th and face a vote of No Confidence which she will also lose ... she will then be taken to the Tower of London to await execution on charges of Treason ( OK perhaps not the last part)

A leadership made up of Brexiteers is the only way forward for a real Brexit.

The same country that evicted the Roman Empire from the isles, crushed the Spanish Armada, routed the Napoleonic juggernaut, and stood tall against the onslaught of the Third Reich, will now go down in flaming defeat to trade deals.

If Great Britain has really become that weak, maybe it's time to elect someone to Make Britain Great Again.

We'll I get paid in dollars so I am hoping the pound goes even with the dollar. That will make my stupidly hyperinflated, 1000 sq ft shed....err...house waaaay cheaper.

Put Boris in charge? You are joking I take it? Boris ha ha ha. I would rather put that commie Corbyn in charge than Boris. I agree that the maybot should go, in fact we should sack the lot of them from all partys. Because none of them are for us the people. A load of millionaires running the govt not for every one, but for them selves and their rich friends.

The Romans left because of trouble at home not because of the Brits , their departure lead to our Dark Ages.

Fear not , we haven't become weak but like many countries we're let down by the mental pygmies that govern.
We do need a strong leader but I don't see one waiting in the wings .. which is concerning.

The problem was getting in. GB never needed the EU.
Should have never let go of your sovereignty in the first place.
You will have the greatest trading partner in the world so Im sure
the UK will find their way, they always have.
