  • May day, may day - sinking fast

    First D day on 6th June and then May day on the 7th. Theresa May finally forced to walk the plank. So then we have all the fun fun fun of a Conservative leadership election and which ever new set of fat buttocks ends up sitting on the front bench we will still face the same deadlock and unresolved problems.

      So what now ? As I understand-the opposite side of the World from the action- Theresa May was trying to cut the best deal she could for the UK: who could do it better ?

            That won't do it alone if your party is split down the middle

              Isn't your entire country split down the middle on this issue ?

              At least that's what the referendum vote suggests...

                She tried and she failed, therefore she had to go.

                Even after that disastrous first vote on her withdrawal agreement - biggest ever Government defeat in the Commons - she carried on with the same old negotiators and the same old plan

                Olly Robbins was May's chief negotiator

                  Even if the EU were willing or able to reopen the negotiations is there any point if the agreement they reach will then be rejected by the House of Commons?
                  The British Government would first have to put someone forward to negotiate who had a real mandate to negotiate.

                  As I see it now the most likely outcome will be a hard Brexit with a hard border between the EU and the UK. I have regarded that as the most likely outcome from day one. Any alternative will involve years upon years of self flagellation by the British government, the Tory Party (whether they are in government or not) and the British People in general.

                  I hope I am wrong.

                      Good riddance to bad rubbish. It's just a pity her successor will be even worse.

                            Why do you hope you are wrong ?

                              Oh no, mate. That's just too much. I'm asking for a verification on that one.
