    The all-new-ish Brexit Thread

    Well, that's why those of us who voted to leave, voted to leave! So this kind of thing would never happen once we have left, which we haven't yet. I'm still hoping we leave on 29 March, with or without a deal, I no longer care.

    Apparently, also, around 40,000 of the signatures are from foreign actors.

    If her Withdrawal Bill is rejected again then it will be 29 March that we leave, not 30 June as the EU has made passing the Withdrawal Bill a condition of getting the extension, and 29 March is still the legal default, with or without a deal.

    On the subject of cars and as a brief aside, Ford is to make 5000 redundant in Germany. I'm amazed people here aren't all over this as it must be Brexit's fault, yes?

    Actually, that isn't what the article was talking about at all. It referred to the French, for example, who are not happy the common agricultural policy will take a hit or the Eastern European nations who are not happy that their subsidies may be less than previously. The article isn't about us paying money owed but about what will happen to the finances once the money we pay into the coffers is gone, and how unhappy various countries are with the options.

    I think you need to stop with the personal insults. It is indeed my personal opinion that he may have overstretched himself. I'm fully entitled to that opinion. As I also said in that same post, whether or not that is the case will depend upon May's response. He could have triggered what as an avid self-confessed remainer he would least want to happen given that the legal default of leaving is less than two weeks away.

    Well according to this article (randomly chosen from a few coughed up by Google), quite a few countries were not feeling so chipper about not having British dosh.

    Really? When did I say I was an expert on 'parliamentary rules, laws, etc'? That's right: I didn't. Stop making up stuff. All I said about Bercow is that he's a tw*t and that he may have overstretched himself.

    Yeah, it's a pittance, which is why they had an internal scrap about how they were going to plug the financial gap left by our exit. And why, of course, they wouldn't begin negotiations without first talking about the money.

    No conclusion yet as to his motives. Seems to be either a family dispute or an act of terrorism.

    Bercow is a self-important tw*t. However, he may have overstretched himself on this occasion. It's less than two weeks to Brexit day. No deal is the legal default. All it would take is for the government to do nothing and we leave with no deal*. Sadly, May won't do nothing as she is very weak. She will go to the EU with a begging bowl and grovel cringingly. *Not that I ever wanted no deal. But I'll take it if the option is no Brexit or a big delay to Brexit.

    With no deal comes no money to EU coffers.

    She may well be likeable - I haven't met her and so I couldn't say - but as for the other attributes, I have no idea what those 30 plus per cent of people have been on lately but I wouldn't mind some!

    Er, they have formed a government, ergo they won! I won't deny the claim you make in your second sentence. That is undoubtedly the case!
