Labour's call for a second referendum on a new Brexit deal under its veteran socialist leader Jeremy Corbyn

That's not Brexit.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Coud end up with much the same as there was before the election.

According to the polls from the UK's right-wing tabloids and MSM, it's going to be bumbling Johnson's triumph over the "unfit-to-be-prime-minister" Corbyn. If these polls are proven wrong, it will be because of the MSM's blatant championing of "the few" and, in their ignorance, their arrogant disdain for "the many". The Right's patent determination to discount the energy and enthusiasm of young people and that "unknown quantity", the formidable power of democracy's secret weapon, social media could upset expectations and give to Corbyn his "Atlee" moment in history.

I’m naturally pessimistic and pretty much resigned to a Tory majority.

I get the feeling the undecideds won’t choose Labour in enough numbers.

If it rains the undecides will stay at home.

That's not Brexit.

Brexit is simply the UK (including Northern Ireland) leaving the EU. It's a neutral term and doesn't need redefining by a Trump cultist.

Serrano was promoting Nigel Farage as PM, but Farage decided not to run for a seat because he keeps losing and his party is now polling at about 3%.

Oh my.

Why would a majority of UK voters vote for the Tories, anyway?

A Brexit deal is not Brexit. No deal / clean break Brexit is Brexit.

So Trump supporters are cultists, are they? Deplorable too, right?

A Brexit deal is not Brexit. No deal / clean break Brexit is Brexit.

According to whom? Farage? Tucker Carlson? Judge Jippy? A hysterical lunatic in a basement?

If you check what Brexit meant before the referendum, you’ll find a lot of different versions of what Brexit meant from the leading proponents of Brexit. After the referendum, you’ll find a lot of the same people changed their views.

In addition, if anyone wants to talk about CNN, echo chambers, globalists and stuff like that, I can provide a list of the mixed messages from the pro-Brexit people if required.

You know, just saying things doesn't make them real.

It's not rocket science. Brexit means leave. Period. meaning the U.K. can strike trade deals with other countries on its own, like it did for centuries before the EU. Oh, but no, not with a deal Brexit, all that now has to be approved by Brussels.

How the mighty have fallen.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

A Brexit deal is not Brexit. No deal / clean break Brexit is Brexit.

An entirely spurious claim. Not one national newspaper or broadcaster uses the word according to your cooked-up definition. It always was, and continues to be, used to refer to Britain leaving the EU. Nothing more, nothing less, and no special conditions applied.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

The"Brexit referendum" was to leave with or without a deal but more people want to leave with deal than not. I would also think that people on both sides have changed their choices.
