    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    What was it the polls were saying before the EU referendum?

    Right. So the BBC (my link) isn't going to go full on it's because of Brexit because of 'frothy mouthed Brexit loons'? Get real! They jump at the chance to blame Brexit for anything! An MP can say what they like, they have their own political agenda. Quoting a company representative directly and doing so while also providing other facts such as the policy of closing half their WORLDwide plants is a lot more believable, as you would also say if the topic was something other than Brexit.

    Second episode of The Paras - Men of War was on tonight. Followed the final test, called P Company. Brutal.

    Crafty by the government. Forced into it by Dominic Grieve who I think believes he is the PM. (And indeed any other backbencher, given Bercow's behaviour last week)

    It was a very good speech but he stabbed BoJo in the back, leaving us with remainer May (and all the subsequent chaos she has caused), and he has been very dodgy on Brexit since returning to the cabinet. While some heads will be turned by a rousing speech, not mine.

    Not quite. In fact, in the article, the company has stated that Brexit is not a 'driving factor'. The site would have closed regardless. They are reducing their factories worldwide from 50 sites to 30.

    Really? So you don't think leavers want control over migration from the EU then? Honestly? You don't think that was an important issue?

    She would suffer at the ballot box if she did that though.

    The husband didn't do anything wrong at all. Why can't MPs treat him when he is seriously ill with cancer?

    The EU could concede elements of the Withdrawal Agreement and that would sort out much of the mess. But obviously, as you say, the EU can do FA about our current impasse.

    That's what the electorate wanted because they - we - voted for a minority government in 2017. Had the Tories increased their majority then it is highly unlikely there would be this impasse now. In addition, you have an opposition leader who only wants one thing regardless: another GE. He is as guilty of tunnel vision as May is albeit for different reasons.

    To the credit? You want Corbyn as PM then? The DUP will never walk away from the government in a confidence motion. Aside from the fact that they don't want the present version of the Labour party anywhere near power they will also know that the money they received which made them look good at home very much depends on them keeping this government in power. I am sure there are ways and means of clawing back that money if the DUP break the agreement.

    That's an excuse that will be brought out to delay Article 50 implementation although delaying it will harm the very groups MPs have been saying should be protected: business and EU nationals because it will continue the uncertainty. I doubt very much there will be a February break and it is possible for Parliament to sit on Fridays and weekends if necessary.

    Oh dear me. Her husband is seriously ill with cancer. The money is to give him a holiday. You shouldn't just accept whatever Sky says in its headline. Sky has become a left wing remain lobby group.

    If only it was that simple.
