1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Oh Britain, what have you done (part ∞+3)?

    The polling is basically telling us a combination of 1) people don't like to admit they were wrong and 2) People still think we can have the sunny uplands full of unicorns Brexit. A second referendum would be conducted with no practical way for Leave to hide all the obvious problems and Remain could just go on and on about how everyone will be worse off and there is no solution in Northern Ireland. Oh and we'd have to build our own satnav system.

    I don't think there will be a second referendum though. I think we will end up with EEA/EFTA getting narrowly passed and everyone will hate it and agree we just did a monumentally stupid thing to ourselves

    And I still have no idea what Labour's policy is. Taken at face value the six tests mean we cannot leave and they must vote against again possible deal.

    It strikes me that the majority of MPs of any political stripe, do not understand the consequences of leaving, beyond the slogans of ‘take back control, Leave means Leave, £850m a week for the NHS and the will of the people’.

    Does anyone remember Boris’s Trumpian brain fart?- calling for the building of a cross channel bridge to France. No doubt that would take the pressure off the motorway to Dover by providing lorry parking beyond the border. I suspect the feasibility study is still with Carillion.

    This is why the polls aren’t moving, in case you’re curious.

    Maybe. The UK is still in the EU, most of the wheels are still on the bus, and the whole thing is a pain in the neck. Why worry?
    Other possibilities:
    - polls are inaccurate (many of the latest polls show the Conservatives ahead of Labour in a GE, and a poll in April showed that 8 out of 10 LP members oppose the LP leadership and think there should be a second referendum. Those can't be right, can they?)
    - some polls indicate the opposite of what you state: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...um-vote-leave-remain-swing-poll-a8371451.html

    It appears that the Italian president has decided that the will of the people = the will of the stupid and therefore vetoed their plans accordingly. Unfortunately for the UK it seems that the Queen is a DM reader.

    Thanks for posting that. My old home town and sad to see. The have long abandoned any national development planning and are leaving large sections of the country to rot.

    Pritty Patel, the disgraced Overseas Development Minister, sacked for unilaterally conducting foreign policy without reference to the real Foreign Secretary, is calling for an investigation into Remain campaign spending. No doubt desperate to rehabilitate her tarnished reputation.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politic...investigation-remain-campaign-spending-brexit

    Best wishes to a Pritty on her long slow ascent of the greasy pole second time round. Hint- remember the Israeli Defence Force is not a legitimate destination for U.K. foreign aid. Foreign aid is usually designed to save lives.

    When many of them have been conned into thinking that leaving the EU is the answer, rather than placing blame where it belongs. I wouldn't hold your breath.

    These Brexiters really are a bunch of fcuking idiots.

    As you say, Switzerland has free movement of people and also is in EFTA, but in addition is part of Schengen, none of which would be acceptable to Hard Brexiters.

    in addition, the frictionless customs they refer to in the article is no such thing, you should see the queues of trucks at the border on the motorway going into Basel, often it tails back for many km. As someone who works in CH, I can assure everyone that it is a real ball-ache to get stuff imported from the EU and we are also screwed by distributors who slap a big mark-up on goods from the rest of the EU.

    They really do live in a fantasy land.

    Just for clarification the first referendum was in 1975, the second was in June 2016.

    I've no doubt there will be a third referendum at some point in the future, perhaps in another 41 years.
