    Have you moved yet?
    Corbyn won't be PM before 2022. By then No Deal will have happened and who knows what happens to the Brexit party (spoilers, the voters go back to being Tories).

    So - when there's a GE followed by a Tory / BXP coalition and the inevitable hard Brexit you're going to... what? Sing a little song?

    Fuck the Tories. Fuck Corbyn and his antipathy towards the EU.

    3) VONC called, government loses. Triggers a GE.

    in the scenario tory party elects a PM who tries soft brexit:
    1) parliamentary arithmetic against them: DUP/ERG always voting against government
    2) paralysis as we encounter 31st october
    3) this PM doesn't want no deal, will move towards GE/2nd referendum
    4) no majority in HOC for 2nd referendum at the moment
    5) final result is calling a GE

    genuinely, i can't see how this resolves without a GE or, at the very least, a second referendum. either result is fine for me. i'll vote remain in a second referendum, and in a GE we'll have corbyn as PM.

    Boris Johnson won't have a majority in parliament and will lose a vote of confidence - the government will fall.

    But not before October 31st and that beautiful no deal deadline.

    Tick Tock...
    Brexiteers are the new remainers. To remain outside of the EU.

    Why would the government lose the Vote of No Confidence? Why do you think DUP and Tory Remainers would vote against the government then, when they never have so far, only to lead to further uncertainty and them losing their seats? It would have made some sense for Tory Remainers if Change UK was a success and they could have a political career there but it is largely a failure. They have no reason to commit political suicide.

    dominic grieve (tory MP) last night on newsnight said in the event that the only way of stopping no deal was to vote against the government in a VONC, he would do so. he said there are 30 to 35 other MPs who feel the same way.

    Because some of them recognize higher priorities (like what is best for the country) above their own political survival.

    The DUP will also not back a Government pushing a no deal brexit that forces a hard border (and at some point it will become obvious even to them that one leads inevitably to the other).

    Hmm. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    I think this is hitting upon what would need to happen in order for the Govt to fall via VONC. The next PM being so toxic to "centrist" Conservatives that they up sticks and go to Change UK (or the Lib Dems). Unless that happens though, then this discussion is fantasy.

    I mean maybe I am just burned out because I grew up in a country with politicians that have no principles and only care for securing their seat. So this is what I expect. Someone who stands against his own party needs to have an exit plan. And right now, because of FPTP, no exit plan exists. There is no home for Tory Remainers that choose to leave the party. Change UK seems like a failure. I am unsure they would be welcome among Lib Dems. Also the results of a GE would probably be quite chaotic, with how FPTP would interact in a system when there will be now multiple parties with quite smaller margins than they used to have.

    I think their belief is that a GE would lead to a referendum were Revoke would win so they can Remain. Which WOULD be a solution. Labour will be forced into a coalition since while they likely will win, they will be far short of a majority and the price extracted for that coalition or supply of votes will be a referendum with remain as an option.

    We are already here tbh. The next Govt in all likelihood is going to be a coalition, we just have to hope that they set their price to include genuine electoral reform and not something like AV+. FPTP no longer works in British politics and most crucially it isn't really working for the 2 major ones either.

    I don't know man. I've adjusted my thinking. My current theory is that right now, whatever is the most stupid decision, the British as a collective will take that one. If they had the choice of running headfirst into a wall or through the open door, they would get naked, throw themselves into a pile of shit and jump out the window to run around on the street screaming HAHA! I GOT YOU WANKERS! at the top of their lung.

    And that's the sober version.

    I have no faith in that country left whatsoever.

    What did you expect, she was a remainer? If only she had been a true brexiteer...In other good news President Trump and future PM Farage can now dine with the Queen in a few days time unopposed.

    I'm gonna miss the ongoing saga of Theresa May's latest Brexit Schemes. She never failed in finding a way to make her fucking "deals" dumber and dumber. It was frankenstein's monster she started grafting animal parts on because she didn't know wtf else to do.

    Maybe they'll get the true dumbest Prime Minister ever, David Cameron, to come clean up the mess he made. Wouldn't that be something. Maybe he'll give the Scottish another referendum too.

    You folks decide to cut the almighty NHS to fund the 50% increase in defense spending you'll need post-Brexit to offset the loss of global influence/power?

    Pfft. The UK is a third rate ally to the United States. It's savaged it's military forces in the last decade. It's savaged the foreign office. It's entirely abandoned the front on crucial multilateral problems.

    But hell, you people want to turn Great Britain into Little England so bad... don't let us stop you. Cameron and May already illustrated how ready they were to prostitute the remnant of the Empire that the Sun Never Set On (until it did) out to China.

    I actually feel bad for the Queen. That she lived this long to see The UK so reduced.

    The EU was the last path to relevance for the UK. Damn shame.

    Hahaha the exact opposite in fact. One thing Theresa did do was promise an extra 384 million a week to the NHS, beating the battle bus slogan, by 2023. Again you can thank brexiteers for pushing her in that direction to begin with...Next we will move on defense spending as your linked article confirms...

    You know Trump coming to dinner with our Queen gives us all an idea of how the olde allies and its people must have felt as Americans rode to our rescue once before in the 1940's to help us deal with the European problem at that time.

    Fitting it coincides with the 75th D-Day commemorations, don't you think?

    I would say the UK/US alliance is as strong as ever and unbreakable at this moment, thanks to your leader and our Nigel.

    The Queen must be very proud of how loyal her colonials are in the 21st C at her country's time of need.

    References to WW2 check, references to the British Empire check, you went full retard. Little England is an absolute laughing stock atm and will get squeezed between the far more powerful US, EU and China. You'll be as insignificant in comparison as Turkey.
