    The worst thing about this is that May was told about this problem in advance, and she was told how to prevent it, but she actively choose not to.
    Thus we must conclude that denying EU citizens their right to vote was her express intention.

    Well, probably not the intent, but she certainly accepted the possibility. Enough to hold her liable for this disaster to democracy. Shame on them. Losing more respect with each episode in this circus show.

    She was warned well in advance that this would definitively happen and was presented with a solution, she chose not to implement it despite having the power and ability to do so.

    We all know your dictionary is broken dribbles, but do you have to prove it so often? How exactly can you prove the "fact" that 17m who voted at the last GE were pro-Brexit? Bearing in mind that it wasn't a vote on a single issue? Claivoyance on an industrial scale? Or just plain old making shit up and calling it a fact?

    A majority in anyones book.
    Why do you assume they all wanted a no-deal brexit?

    I was being kind to you. In fact 85% of the 32 million electorate at the last GE voted for supposedly pro Brexit, according to their manifesto, parties ie 27 million. A super majority if ever I saw one. The minute they got passed the election they both tore up those manifestos. Is it any wonder the BXP don't have one and don't need one?

    In other news Theresa is off on June 10th, or is she, but let the games begin! I wonder how PM Johnson will get on with the EU...

    Using FPTP to present some kind of trend is just as fucked up as the rest of your drivel. I thought it was worth pointing this out, everything else... hot air.

    Your main fallacy is that the form Brexit should take is universally agreed.
    Your vision of a hard brexit is definitely not shared by the majority, let alone a fraction of it.
    Congratulations, you got a majority of one trick ponies MEP's elected. They will not show up in EP sessions, and they will not bother to vote on anything. You'll just have Nigel ranting in plenaries now and then but not actually doing anything.
    Check his voting record over the years. He didn't oppose anything overall. He just didn't show up. If you are bothered by sending "vasts amount of monies to the EU", you should be outraged at the idea of giving this scarecrow more than 1000 pounds a year.
    Those guys might help achieve your goal in the commons, but they will just be drowned in the European parliament.

    Not only that, but remember how Brexiteer politicians were crying crocodile tears over how the EU has treated British fishermen (I mean, how DARE the EU make sure those fishermen have a job in 2019 when they would happily have removed every last fish from the Atlantic by the end of the 80s if the fishing quotas hadn't been established)?

    Guess who has been on the EU Fisheries Committee for the last decade and pretty much never showed his face at a meeting. I'll give you a clue, his first name is Nigel.

    Except that isn't what happens at all.

    People vote on party lines because there are only two parties with a chance at getting in government.
    What each one says they will do is irrelevant because the overwhelming majority of people vote to prevent the other side from getting into power.

    I'm not sure what's better. The Australians I talked to about this said that they had a huge problem with invalid ballots. Like, dick drawings on ballots would probably be PM if they ever found a dick shaped candidate. :P

    So it's looking like today is the day the Maybot, the Opportunity Rover of British politics, sets it's departure date. I've been a harsh critic, I've loathed every second of every speech she's ever made. Her plan to push the WA through Parliament pushed the envelope of acceptable Parliamentary procedure to the limit and was always, ultimately, doomed to fail. I despise her politics and how she has tried to solve Brexit by placing party over country at every turn and she will forever be a contender for the worst PM in our history.

    And even saying all this, she is still in all likelihood a more palatable PM than any of the human simulacra that will replace her next month. God help us all.

    Were two, now three serious main parties:-

    Westminster Voting Intention:

    LAB: 26% (-3)
    BXP: 25% (+1)
    CON: 22% (=)
    UKIP: 2% (=)
    Total 75% for Leave

    LDM: 12% (+1)
    GRN: 4% (+1)
    CHUK: 2% (-1)
    Total 18% for Remain

    https://twitter.com/ElectionMapsUK/s...09405127790594

    All set for a Brexit party + Conservative dream team of Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage coalition going forward...

    And thats all on remainers not respecting the original Brexit referendum, so thanks for that remain people.

    You don't get to claim Labour is a Leave party when your own opinion of Brexit is that anything short of WTO isn't Brexit, they want a CU which by your own logic makes them a Remain party.

    Well the Chukkas don't think Corbyn is an avid europhile, otherwise if Labour is for remain what's the point of them?

    Corbyn has put Labour in the privileged position of being no things to all men. To Remainers they are tacit endorsers of Leave and to Brexiteer "moderates" such as yourself they are traitors to the good ship Brexit.

    The point stands though. You don't get to call them Leavers unless you want to reassess your entire opinion on what is Brexit.
