Title: brexit latest
Post by: hifimad on December 09, 2017, 11:18:05 AM
So now we have it, the latest news which states that even after we leave the EU we are going to be subject to the european court for eight years, forgive me but did the leave campaign not state that one of the reason we should leave was to make us independant from the european court. so we will leave the EU which will dissapoint remainers like myself while at the same time the leave camp will not get the independance from the EU courts that they voted for, and it is going to cost us 40 billion pounds to do so, for both sides THIS IS MADNESS.

Not sure if I heard this correctly on the news but a different Government can reverse it ? If that's correct it's been a load of wasted money.

It seems the vultures are circling above the almost lifeless corpse that is the P.M.

Can't wait for PMQ's at 12:00 on tv, If Corbyn misses this golden opportunity he doesn't deserve to be the leader of the opposition.

Watch this space........

Isn't he just the frontman, the spokesperson, not the final 'party decision' maker  ;)
He's Ms May's double. A nobody, just someone to shoulder the blame  (y)
The older I get, the less interested I get in politics. It's as if there's a being above us all making all the decisions lol.
It's probably Murdock and his ilks lol  C:-) >;  (y)

I don't think he has 'leader' potential - never have, although in fairness to him I do think he's improved a tad from first being appointed.
Still not PM material though.

Panorama tonight......Starring Theresa May in The Brexit {deal or no deal} hosted by the Tory loving Nick Robinson

A face saving, damage limitation, job securing publicity stunt to show the country how tirelessly May is working on the brexit "deal"

I hope one of the questions tonight is "Just what has the government been doing for the last 18 months?"

Nick Robinson. Can't stand the guy. Never have. I won't watch anything with him in.
He'll rip May apart. It's all for show though .  .  .  .  .  .  .  .

Totally agree Fly, he's a real crawler, anyone knows these things are totally staged managed and whether your anti Tory or right up their backsides THEY decide the questions and the responses, it will no doubt come across as really socking it to her {to the gullible}.

She should have been put in front of a live studio audience asking PROPER questions, anyway five minutes to go but am taping it as I always watch University Challenge
Theresa, starter for ten, no conferring.

I notice that Micheal {turncoat} Gove has "decided" to stay on, just shows money is more important to him than principles.

Well she won the no confidence vote.......

Did she win because they have faith in her, or did she win because they want her out but have no one willing to take up the position.
Either way she's on a hiding to nothing, I almost feel sorry for her.

I said almost!!

Watching this weeks question time {BBC 1} even though everyone is obviously fed up to the back teeth with Brexit I thought it was very thought provoking.

Firstly.. that audience member who "slapped" David Davis down, basically saying as Brexit secretary he did s*d all and was a total waste of space and how he has the nerve to go on that show telling people what to do.

Secondly.. when someone in the audience suggested a "peoples vote" and when asked why said since the referendum we now know a lot more. Plus many of those who voted then have probably died and young people who were too young to vote 2 years ago are now old enough too and as Brexit will literally define the rest of their lives they want a "say".

Thirdly.. Someone suggested instead of another referendum a few hundred people were to be selected from all over Britain from all walks of life to sit round a table {a bit like a jury in a trial} and decide for us, and the country accept the answer, this will not only make the FINAL  {peoples} decision but it would be a lot cheaper.

Fourthly.. No matter how the result is reached, this country is now a divided country and may never again be united. Whatever the "result" those that voted the other way will feel aggrieved, and it will be a rift that will possibly never heal.

hold the front page britain is now a divided country because of the stupidly named brexit, SHOCK HORROR, am i missing something, has it not always been deeply divided between the political classes and the people, the rich and the poor, between the establishment who can get away with anything while ordinary folk are subject to the law, we have never and will never be a united country until some politician decides to do something truly revolutionary like institute true democracy, FAT CHANCE.

It's the "ordinary folk" that's keeping this archaic system of government in power.
I have remarked time and time again you can't wait for the politicians to make change, it's like turkeys voting for Christmas, yes they make all the right noises but that's just what it is.... noise and lots of it. Every 5 years or so, of constantly moaning about the state of the nation, when polling day comes round the "ordinary folk" pile into the voting booth's {lemming like} and only go and vote in another 5 years of the same and then complain for the next five years that things aren't fair.

Why don't we take a leaf out of the french's book, they take to the streets in protest, o.k. overboard it may be but their way gets results, remember a few years ago when they burned British lamb. It makes me laugh to see those stood opposite Parliament shouting through a megaphone and waving banners about whatever it is, the politicians inside don't care whether the demonstrators live or die they are totally uninterested.
You can see that some of the "younger" end of the politicians do genuinely crave change, but I'm afraid they are pi**ing against the wind. Parliament is STILL an exclusive club and I'm afraid the voices of the people wanting change are constantly drowned out. 
We need revolution in this country, but I have a feeling I will be long gone when that happens until then the general public reap what they sow.
