These idiots are deathly afraid of leaving the EU aren't they? They are doing EVERYTHING they can to remain!

I reckon, come the 29th, if we don't have a surrender document agreed to then we just leave...suck it up...and get on with our lives.

Does anyone here believe the Germans would purposely destroy their car industry by cutting the UK off in a little over 5 weeks time? Does anyone believe Das Reich can find another market to take the near 900k cars a year they send to the UK that also drives on the left? Does anyone believe the French, Italians, Spanish etc would be happy with their markets being flooded by cheap german luxury cars that can't be sold in the UK??

Same for Dutch flowers or French asylum seekers...does anyone in their right mind believe that these individual countries within the EU would purposely sabotage their own economies just to stick it to the Limeys because the EU dictatorship told them to??

"What is this telling the EU about "Perfidious Albian"?

I think it is telling the EU that elected Labour and Conservatives MPs find numerous different reasons to disagree with the EU's unDemocratic process of dictatorship.

@ST who says that yesterday's vote was significant

Gosh, I wake to find that different factions of the Tory Party cannot even agree on how important yesterday's government defeat was - everything down to a "hiccup". What is this telling the EU about "Perfidious Albian"?

"Steve Baker, the deputy chairman of the European Research Group of Brexit-backing Tory MPs, Steve Baker, has downplayed the significance of Thursday’s vote, PA reports.

Speaking to the Today programme, he said: “This whole mess is a storm in a teacup. What we needed to achieve here was to send a signal that we are not going to be associated with taking no-deal off the table.”

He rejected suggestions that the ERG had undermined May’s efforts to secure concessions from the EU by raising doubts in Brussels over whether she can deliver a Commons majority for a deal.

“We cannot get ourselves into a position where we are associated with rejecting the UK leaving the EU without a Withdrawal Agreement,” he said. “It’s a catastrophic and foolish negotiating error and we cannot be associated with it.”

Baker said ERG members objected to May “reinterpreting” last month’s vote to replace the withdrawal agreement’s backstop with alternative arrangements for keeping the Irish border open.

He said: “We put an enormous amount of effort into uniting the party around the Malthouse Compromise, and then within a couple of days the prime minister was reinterpreting our vote.

“I’m afraid people didn’t want to be treated like that twice.”

Baker said: “I really do rather object to being called ‘hardline’ when what we are doing is trying to deliver an exit with a deal which works for everybody, with a transition period. We are making enormous compromises to work across the party.” 

Baker said that a deal which left the UK in a customs union with the EU would amount to “repudiating” the result of the 2016 referendum.

On the issue of whether a majority of MPs oppose no-deal, he told Today: “Parliamentarians need to wake up to the reality of what they legislated for. Are they really saying to us now that they didn’t understand Article 50 when they voted for the notification of withdrawal?”

Baker added: “Were this deal to pass through Parliament with this backstop on Labour votes, the Government would subsequently collapse because the DUP would not be able to maintain confidence and supply.

“I’m absolutely convinced our position is eminently reasonable and right.” "

Looking at my old notes, Feb 4th Little Emily actually wrote this in the Times
\\ carbon dioxide, a *harmful* greenhouse gas that causes global warming,//

I guess that phrase "harmful greenhouse gas" is a PR phrase that is drilled into people
===================
I think I already mentioned that oil company is drilling off the Isle of Wight

The best news in the World for under developed countries. They will be allowed to develop. Cheap reliable power will be top of their lists, potable water, sanitation, health care etc will follow, along with a fall in the birth rate and infant mortality.

Climate Science religious fanatics will be issuing a fatwa shortly.
