    That’s a ba-aa-d joke.

    I knew a joke about Wales had to do with sheep at some point.

    Sorry, it's innevitable. Like entropy or finding an odd sock in the wash.

    I have to say though, with May out of the picture I just don't see any result other than a No Deal by default at Oct 31st. BoJo will not ever get people to vote on any deal after all. Hopefully there will at least be legislation brought forward to improve preparations for No Deal and that's it. I just don't see a scenario were DUP or Tory remainers will actually force a general election by a vote of no confidence in government.
    Hail Lilith and see you in Hell!

    So after a disaster for years and being told several times people would come to their senses, plus that it's not the majority of the UK wanting a brexit, yadda, yadda.
    We are now once again proven by polls that the UK is going to vote for the one person who bailed on the entire brexit process and is now coming back into play after he secured his income as charlatan for RT and other obscure news stations in addition to ensuring his double citizenship.

    Big surprise there that everyone with common sense who knew the extension was a bad move, is now being shown why it was a bad move, i mean i could add in worlds like gullible, sadomasochists, racists, bigots to describe this particular movement and at the end of the day they'll get their due.

    It's a shame that nobody, except a few willing to short on the pound and certain UK business or EU businesses with heavy UK reliance stand to gain from this. And that for the coming years we'll have more of loud, dumb and zero substance opposition in the EU while having to deal with a few critical issues. What local forum clowns like Dribbles don't get even if the party of the most punchable face since a decade wins big in the UK they will still be rather small on an EU level and the entire "anti-EU" movement is so splintered that they won't be able to pack a punch as they struggle to find consensus, reason why they aren't even all under one EU 'party'.



    I'm still hoping for a No Deal. I personally as i find the people put forward by my own party to be rather bland and my party still not having a clear desire of what they want from the EU, i'm going to vote for ALDE and thus Verhofstad. As in a world of extremes voting for the center is a waste vote. I'll be interesting to see what the Netherlands votes on although they have always been rather EU sceptic and with the rise of a new populist who uses fancy words to hide his bigotry i'm sure they'll score quite a few points.

    It’s as your party will shortly find out to its cost: the inability of hard Brexiteers to compromise will a) finally, fracture the Conservatives; b) create a political crisis; c) lead to economic instability and possibly physical conflict.

    You have been warned.
    Started milkshaking yet Nigel?

    Eurochums I have a question for you. Considering who benefits from this sort of thing do you think you are being stitched up? Was it a radicalised remainer? Or do you think it's a Brexit party conspiracy?

    Look at this poor army vet, served his country for decades facing hails of bullets, grenades and wotnot and now those extremist remainers are lobbing milkshakes at him. Or was it even a remainer at all? Perhaps it's just a Brexit party staged thing and all you remainers are being taken for mugs.

    Any other volunteers up for taking a milkshake for the Brexit party team? You'll get a medal...

    Gave my vote today. Felt kinda satisfying.

    - - - Updated - - -

    The absolute mess of overseas UK citizens ability to vote is kinda disgusting, honestly.

    Looks like the UK Government is doing election fraud by preventing European Citizens from voting in EU elections and losing votes by British Citizens living abroad.

    Is that image supposed to elicit some sort of feeling of sympathy or guilt?

    No-one gives a fuck.

    And how about:

    As I said: your refusal to compromise has led to this.

    It will get worse.

    No definately not.

    I was kinda hoping you had started already. The more you milkshake the more you enable us to categorise remainers as fanatics. I'm sure at some point a calculation will be done perhaps 1 milkshake = 1000 votes for the BXP.

    This is not about compromise. Accept you lost, accept democracy instead of trying to destroy it and move on, the nation will return to civility.

    For a "moderate", you sure sound like an extreme Brexiteer.

    Democracy would actually be a second referendum, now that all the lies have been exposed and people are more informed (most people at least).

    Is there some kind of "being informed" index you can check on that? Some poll perhaps querying people on if they know true information about Brexit and EU?

    It's quite easy to get caught in "everyone knows" thinking trap with something only you might know (or assume to be true).

    I would assume rise of Brexit Party wouldn't be quite as rapid if second referendum would have clear chance of reversing course.

    At the present state of democracy worldwide, the average voter "being informed" about what day of the week it is would be a giant leap for mankind.

    I was following news closely when Brexit started, but then fell out of the loop and am now slowly catching up on what happened in the last years, using this as a guide:

    And boy, did you manage to screw it all up. :-) Why the hell are you still in the EU, LOL?

    If only Jo Cox had a milkshake thrown at her.

    In short? Because Brexiteers don't want to Brexit. Turns out it's a really fucking stupid idea to trigger a countdown without a plan and without a majority to actually carry out that plan if you ever get round to having one.

    May decided that she wanted to try and carry this thing through Parliament using only the Conservatives and the DUP but neglected to actually count the votes, the ERG (hard Brexiteers) never supported her and neither did the DUP who she bribed with a billion quid to support her.

    She kept this up untill the 11th hour and by then it was too late because no other parties can actually work with her because she will be replaced soon and no leader can be bound by the actions of a previous leader, in other words there is no point making a deal with May to pass the WA because the next PM can just tear it up.

    Thus here we are.

    There's always going to be a hardcore 30% ish people in the UK that has WW2/Napoleonic mentality that anything and everything between the Channel and the Med are run by those who want to kill brits. The issue is that the other 70% are split. Labour (outside of Corbyn and a handful), LD, Green, Change are all against this, making up a good 55% of the likely vote today.

    Myself tactically voted for the Green party since it seems they were the better choice to limit the brexit party pull where I am. Farage is going to get all the plaudits because the people here have a FPTP mentality where somehow just because you're the one with more votes, that means you have the majority. Even if those who are opposed to you have more votes just split between them.
