It is the Labour party, it represents the workers who will be fucked completely by Brexit, hopefully painfully enough that the country as a whole will vote for Corbyn, if you want to join a vehicle for Remain then you can join the Lib Dems.
    Fixed that for you

    Instead of relying on a nearly three year old article, why not choose something more up to date? Like... https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-a9024116.html

    This is like shooting fish in a barrel if the fish were drugged.
    Because reminding you that you won elections with a more centrist and less blinkered leader obviously means that the exact same person should return to lead Labour again

    I want to see him offer EU some tea at the deadline; see how that goes.

    In most cases a political party's chances improve with a generic non-specific candidate in polling. As soon as you give people a specific name then any benefit is reduced or turns negative. The newspapers know this: that's why they published it as part of their ongoing attempt to remove Corbyn.
    Where did I state anything of the sort? And in that case the most likely outcome is Labour will remain out of government.

    Yeah, of course it is!

    Some of it yes, the last part of the videos lays out he is indeed also ignorant not just by design about the trade deal, not fully knowing the whole thing and simply nitpicking paragraphs that work for him. One can argue it is merely setting the stage to continue blaming the EU for english incompetence but that was pretty much a given.

    All of the messaging from BoJo from day one of their internal elections has been about scapegoating the EU about everything that will happen.
    Hail Lilith and see you in Hell!

    You prefer having a lifetime in opposition while the worst Conservative governments in living memory run the country into the ground delivering Brexit, actively harming the people you claim to support, over the "shame" of a less ideologically pure party leader and Labour winning elections.

    I don't think there's any discussion needed about who has shat themselves logic wise

    Blocked by the US (HBO) you mean. It's blocked in the UK because it hasn't been aired there yet.
    Nice try though.

    Silly me thought there was free movement of goods and services throughout the EU. So someone in Belgium can watch it but someone in the UK, still in the EU for a few more days, cannot? Does that not break an EU rule somewhere?

    If the broken EU can't get free movement of electrons right it has no hope with people, goods and services.

    Another good reason to leave. Cheers!

    Very!

    With the ruling Conservative party stealing and implementing all the Brexit party policies they are just getting a manifesto together for a possible snap General Election. If the Lib Dems help to bring that snap GE by winning Brecon it's all good as Farage takes some time and decides what he wants Boris to do next...

    After the Boris bounce recently in the polls, Boris vs Corbyn is no contest and we all can see that Farage is the Boris puppetmaster...

    Happy days for Brexiteers indeed!

    UK and EU not ready for no-deal Brexit, business lobby CBI warns

    The CBI said: “The EU lags behind the UK in seeking to prevent the worst effects of a no-deal scenario.

    The CBI’s head of EU negotiations Nicole Sykes said “a lot needs to be done, by everyone”.

    Time really is ticking for both sides

    It isn't the EU blocking access to HBO content, but HBO that probably has a broadcasting deal for their content in the UK with some domestic provider that stipulates they aren't to provide earlier access to web content for UK users.

    Do not expect that situation to change just because of Brexit.

    Driving through the Brecon Beacons tonight. Was expecting a few by-election posters, but surprised to see what looked like a Brexit Party bus, crashed into a hedge. Got out to check all was ok. No one around, just an abandoned bus, doors open, side-on, blocking a lay-by...

    Yeah, I know. Just too fun sometimes to see what new bullshit he's going to conjure up in response.

    Might be an ingenious trap, prevent people from travelling past get them all angry enough in the process, and start making photo's of them from the top of the bus claiming there was a large angry group of pro-brexiteer protestors!
