No deal is better than bad deal.

No deal or deal, Mr anti-semitic remoaner is always going to say 'no'. He's on the payroll of the EU for sure.

-5 ( +4 / -9 )

Brexit was divisive.

Crashing out of the EU without an agreement is even more divisive and dangerous.

Suspending parliament is autocratic and destructive.

Boris Johnson is not only a far-right wing autocrat. He is coward for not facing his opposition.

They should push for a second referendum, one for all ! Good luck mr.Corbyn!

Comment like this don't help. Johnson is centrist, or centre-right at best.

Could you please elaborate how he is far-right? Because he isn't. He is one of the most liberal Tory members. He believes in amnesty for 500,000 to 1 million illegal migrants.

But was 'decisive', the people want out, Corbyn is just a doctor 'No', no matter what is presented he will say no, because he is a remoaner sore looser.

He be saying no to the cheques from the EU and instead should be serving his constituents, the workers. It doesn't take a genius to add two and two together to realise a Croatian architect will be willing to work less in the UK than what a UK architect demand in pay. At the same time no UK architect is going to accept Croatian architect's pay.

The whole system whilst intended to bring peace and prosperity to Europe instead just exploits workers to enrich the Davos crowd.

A quick update:

Confirmed: No10 has decided Philip Hammond, David Gauke, Dominic Grieve and co will have the Conservative whip withdrawn if they do not vote with the government on Tuesday

Seems that Boris is going to force an election by removing Tory MPs from the party. This election will take place after October 31.

And then a third one if the second one also votes to leave!

Suspending parliament is a tactic borrowed from the archives of a quasi-democracy or banana republic. 

For that matter, Britain, Europe, and the United States will all lose if Britain leaves the EU. Leaving the European Union makes Britain weaker, makes Europe weaker, and, by making key allies of the United States weaker, makes America weaker.

@CrazyJoe

I am not sure if you are familiar with the British parliamentary system or not, but suspending parliament (or proroguing as it is usually known) is supposed to happen every year or so.

Thank you for your input, but I am addressing the following comment:

Correction, the people were split almost exactly in half: 4% is well within the margin of error, according to Mr Brexit.

"In a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way. If the Remain campaign win two-thirds to one-third that ends it." - Nigel Farage, 17 May 2016, before the non-binding referendum

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Hold a proper, binding referendum, with all the necessary safeguards in place, drastic irreversible changes to take place if and only if there is a two-thirds to one-third split.

The next few days will show us who really is prepared to do "everything necessary" to stop a no-deal Brexit, and who is a posturing windbag. It's time to put up, or shut up.

Good job that David Cameron who was Prime Minister and the person who called the referendum said this in response to Farage's comments before the referendum took place then:

UK PM Cameron Say No Second Referendum If Result Is Close

“I am absolutely clear a referendum is a referendum, it’s a once in a generation, once in a lifetime opportunity and the result determines the outcome ... You can’t have neverendums, you have referendums.”

Tangerine2000 - Then Cameron shudda made sure it was a proper, legally-binding referendum, shouldn't he? Instead, sure Remain was going to win, he made all sorts of promises; "Whatever your decision, I will do my best to deliver it" - and his best, once the votes were in, was to throw in the towel and run away.

From the start, he had no intention of ever delivering any kind of Brexit; obviously anything Cameron said about the non-binding referendum is null and void.

He got it wrong.

Could you please elaborate how he is far-right?

Yes: he's a racist who has no problems with journalists being physically attacked and has suspending democracy in the UK in order to ram through a far-right Brexit that nobody voted for.

I hoped that helped.

@sneezy

How is this far-right? People on the far-left also do this. It isn't partisan

in order to ram through a far-right Brexit that nobody voted for

Can you explain how Brexit is far-right without resorting to "it's far-right because it is"?

@cleo

Then Cameron shudda made sure it was a proper, legally-binding referendum, shouldn't he?

The referendum wasn't legally binding, but Article 50, which was the result of the referendum, is.

The British parliament has passed the referendum into statue law.

That's not true, actually.

Can you explain how Brexit is far-right without resorting to "it's far-right because it is"?

Brexit, in and of itself, isn't far-right. A no deal Brexit which will open up the UK to vulture US corporations, take food away from the poorest, reduce taxes on the wealthiest and attack workers' right, which is what Boris wants, is far-right.

Again, I hope you have found this informative.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

That's not true, actually.

How so? Can you give examples? Have far-left activists never attacked reporters? Have far-left politicians never endorsed attacks on people?

Also, when has Boris endorsed such physical attacks? Which reporter?

Again, I hope you have found this informative

I think you believe you are being informative.

Can I give examples of things that haven't happened? No.

Have far-left activists never attacked reporters? Have far-left politicians never endorsed attacks on people?

Not in the UK.

Also, when has Boris endorsed such physical attacks? Which reporter?

I think you believe you are being informative.

I do believe that, because I am.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

On the taped call, Guppy tells Johnson he wants to scare Collier by getting heavies to give him “a couple of black eyes” and a “cracked rib”. Appearing to indicate he is happy to help supply Collier’s address, Johnson is heard saying at the end of the call: “OK, Darry, I said I’ll do it. I’ll do it, don’t worry.”

Oh dear.

I like that you didn't contest that Johnson is a racist, though, thanks for conceding that one.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Oh dear :(

....he could have possibly been in league with Darius Guppy in a plot to get me beat up.

Fortunately it never happened....

Please try to do better than insinuation next time.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Woah! That would be a killer blow... if I had said that he actually had the journalist beaten up. But I didn't. I said he was fine with it. Which he manifestly is. Cute effort though, kiddo!

Which journalist got beaten up?

I mean no offence, but you sound like the type of person who thinks they're witty and sassy, but are just bellends.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

No journalist was beaten up. I never said they were. But Johnson was okay with it if they were. That was my point.

I mean no offence, but you sound like the type of person who thinks they're witty and sassy, but are just bellends.

Scathing stuff from Mr. “Thanks For Playing”.

Paragraph 3 of Article 50, (Lisbon Treaty) states clearly why in reality their isn't a scenario of no deal.

The Treaties shall cease to apply to the State in question from the date of entry into force of the withdrawal agreement or, failing that, two years after the notification referred to in paragraph 2, unless the European Council, in agreement with the Member State concerned, unanimously decides to extend this period. *

https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/brexit/brexit-brief-article-50

The interpretation of any withdrawal agreement, depends on finding consensus for a future relationship. The UK is either a member state or not.

Jeremy Corbyn has never supported UK membership of the European Union.

Jeremy Corbyn handling of Brexit in opposition has been frankly an appalling lesson of incompetence. Vague and ambiguous is an understatement. Fake weasel words followed by a failure to fulling state his parties polices and strategy for negotiating what the form, any future settlement would take.

Politicly Jeremy Corbyn allowed Boris Johnson to put the rug from right underneath him.
