No, it isn't. The alternative is to give in to the EU's unacceptable demands.

I have never liked Boris personally but you have to give the man credit for sticking to his guns about leaving and not being afraid to take flak for it.


No , working for government you only get credit for going beyond your duties , he has only done his job and nothing more , its his job to carry out these duties . So dont give him credit for doing his job.

Do you credit anyone else for simply showing up to work ?

For my "pay related bonus" I need to show exemplary behaviour and carry out tasks which are above and beyond my contracted role .
I work for gov.uk , that is their policy on work related bonus.

So naw , nae #in credit for boris for simply doing his job.



Well, I think he deserves more credit than May. I don't see what is so wrong for giving credit to a politician for sticking to his principles.

I learned today that suspending parliament in this way means that any legislation currently going through the process will likely just be cancelled and not finalise.
so being the cynical person I am, my first thought was 'I wonder what legislation is currently going through parliament that Boris and the Conservatives don't want to get finalised?'
I've done no research so don't know the answer to this, but it'd be interesting to find out, no?

I like Andrew Neil. He has absolutely skewered a good few politicos in his time.

The EU isn't going to give us a deal that gives us any advantage over continuing EU members or threatens the integrity of the EU. That isn't the EU punishing us as some keep suggesting, it simply the facts of our negotiating position.

With that in mind we care never going to get a 'good deal' from the EU as the impact of our no deal threat is less to them than the impact of giving us any more than they already have.

We can go, we can take the deal, or we can stay. It's not really a negotiations any more but a decision. Parliament is entirely right not to give Johnson or any PM a blank cheque on making that decision.

Something we agree on. He is probably the best interviewer on UK tv at moment.

What about the majority of people that voted to leave? You seem to keep on ignoring that little factoid.

No they will get nothing but austerity and financial worry

where as the people who planned brexit , will probably have things set up for personal windfall

No ignoring it at all.

My position is that, baring a second referendum we should leave.

Where I disagree with ardent brexiters is the idea that a second referendum is undemocratic.

You seem to think that the Tories want austerity and poverty. I thought they were better known for wanting prosperity? It make more money for them than austerity.

Seems a bit like "keep voting until you get the result you want" to me.

Whereas this lot started out meaning well, what with the NHS and stuff but then...oh dear, it all went a bit Pete Tong, didn't it?

en.wikipedia.org...(UK)

Don't get me wrong - I don't have any great love for the Tories, more anti lefty, really. The thought of Corbyn and McMao in power frankly terrifies the bejasus out of me.
