He's pretty much pro-Brexit.

I have to say there is a complete lack of leadership or common sense being shown in Parliament. Those MPs who are against Brexit do not have a voice and are shouted down every time they raise a point.

Ultimately businesses will do what is right for their shareholders. They have no loyalty to Britain as very few are British companies and those that are British in origin are nearly all foreign owned.

If the Govt leaves with no deal there will be a run on the pound which the Bank of England will have to fight by increasing interest rates, probably by full percentage points.

You think he's Pro-Remain and pro-EU?

I must have missed the bits when he's done all he can to stop it.

And I'm pretty sure Labour said they were going to back the referendum vote in the last general election.

He’s was pro remain before the vote on the basis that the UK would be better of in it and changing it than out.

And now he’s accepted the result of the vote, because that’s how democracy works.

His exact words were “I’m 7.5 in 2.5 out” but still managed to campaign harder and make many more appearances for remain than the actual official Labour remain organiser (Alan cuffing useless Johnson)

And for the record many many more times than May, who basically disappeared.

AAV - To get an idea of how utterly farcical the Tory Brexit shambles is turning out to be, consider the fact that Theresa May has gathered her ministers today to an emergency summit to decide what they actually want from the Brexit negotiations.

This Brexit strategy summit is happening 15 months AFTER they triggered the Article 50 process, and just six weeks or so before the final deal needs to be completed to allow ratification in the parliaments of all of the member states.

Surely anyone with even the remotest degree of competence would have actually have decided what they wanted out of the Brexit negotiations BEFORE they began the time-limited negotiation process?

Then there's the fact that even if Theresa May's ludicrous emergency Brexit summit isn't completely blown up by the members of Jacob Rees-Mogg's fanatically right-wing ERG Brextremist faction who are embedded within her government, nothing is actually decided because we know that Arlene Forster and the bigoted DUP sectarians blagged themselves a veto on Britain's Brexit position (alongside the £1 billion bung) to prop up Theresa May's government after her vanity election backfired so spectacularly last year.

The vast majority of British people (including the majority of Brexit voters) think that Brexit is going badly, but still, despite the ridiculously shambolic mess she's overseeing, somehow there are people out there who think Theresa May is a good leader, and that she's doing a good job of handling the Brexit process!

I'm afraid we no longer have much say in anything.

I guarantee that those who have broken the law in the Grenfell fire tragedy will walk away scot-free. There seems to have been a media led-campaign to heap responsibility on the man in charge of the fire fighters on the night of the fire, this last week or so. Obviously to deflect blame from politicians, company directors and those who renovated the building.

At some point in the next few years, i can see riots on the streets again.

Government introduced anti money laundering laws a few years ago that made the penalty to defraud the Govt from money in anyway or in any amount as a massive punishment.

However 'invest' your money in some offshore tax-haven and you would be seen as being clever and astute.

Tories falling to pieces.

Apparently the City is gearing up for an October election.

It seems worrying to me that may just wants to plough on regardless of what her own MP's are saying, purely based on "its what the people want"

Was the meeting a chequers just a "fall in to line or get out" kind of meeting?

I wonder, especially after kwacky's post, which way a referendum vote would swing now?
