    • Why were some Tory MP's and so many members of the public so shocked and surprised when the British Attorney General stated the obvious in his legal advice to the British government in relation to the Backstop agreement concerning the land border between the UK and the EU? Are they thick? Did they not read anything that was written about it months ago? Do they not understand simple concepts written in simple language?
      The agreement was that no arrangement would be put in place which resulted in a hard border between Northern Ireland and Ireland in order to comply with the Good Friday Agreement. That insurance policy holds until a full agreement between the EU and the UK is in place. Once that agreement is in place the Backstop disappears. The EU and the UK, amongst others, have signed an international agreement relating to Northern Ireland. The EU is seeking to honour the commitments it make when it signed that agreement.

      The only way the Backstop becomes a problem for the UK is if it is seeking to renege on that agreement. The only way it puts Northern Ireland on a different footing to Great Britain in trade and legal terms is if the UK chooses to do so by cutting one of the parts of the UK which is almost British off from the rest of the country. In short if the UK behaves in an honourable manner, something it has rarely done in relation to anything in Ireland before, then the Backstop is not an issue. That's why Ireland came up with the idea in the first place and that’s why the EU is holding the UK to their word. It’s also why the little-englanders are going nuts; they never had to keep their word to the Paddies or the Darkies or the Slopes before so like spoiled children who are told No for the first time (and by Jonny Foreigner no less!) their tantrum, while unedifying, is not unexpected.

          • Mrs May has won the vote. She is going nowhere. The looney Brexiteers have fallen flat on their arses again!

            • What do you expect when most Tory MP's are pro-remain? Even if May had lost and resigned, they would have gone for another remainer leader like Amber Rudd. That's why Brexit MPs will always lose. They are outnumbered 3 to 2 by those pigs with their collective noses in the EU money trough.

                  117 MPs is enough to ensure that a Brexiter will be in the final two when May does eventually resign. A Brexiter will always win if it goes to the membership.

                        It will inaugurate a situation roughly similar to that of Switzerland. I.e. the UK will be engaged in continuous processes of negotiation with the EU about this that and the other thing for the indefinite future.

                            I'll be too busy enjoying visits to as many military museums of the world. Other than that, I'll meet you on Waterloo bridge at 10:00hrs December 18th 2028....

                            Other than that, the scab will off!

                              Why play the rejected suitor ?
                              Why choose to repudiate your dual (British) citizenship merely because some politicians display a lack of effective leadership and that you disagree with some of the British electorate ? It must happen all the time.

                              Surely ,citizenship of a particular nation should run deeper than these passing events.
