If it's one of your links I'd be surprised if there's more than three syllables.

Frankly, I’m impressed you can spell syllables x

I watched the PMs statement today. Half the torys were not there and everybody shouted her down.

She's had it.

A general election would get the brexit party elected

I don't think anyone would have a majority. The next Govt will certainly be a coalition.

If the Brexit party did win lots of seats it would mean the Tory party truly is finished.

And the country. WTO trading, no NHS, weak deals with the US, the end of worker rights and increased tax havens.

Probably true as they are the only party in my mind with a clear objective. All the others are either messy or not getting their message across.

Just imagine... ;(

The Country is already in danger of collapse, IMHO.

The infrastructure that keeps it going has been wound down to be so minimal, it would take very little to see the country stop functioning.

Case in point, I see the Govt has been warned this morning that the legal system is in danger of no longer providing justice. That means anarchy is the next step. Yet that news barely gets a mention on our media system. Only 8% of crimes are now prosecuted.

What is May up to? Has she resigned herself to the fact she's on her way out?

Problem is the Party cannot remove her from office. She can only resign. By putting things off, then the Tories cannot replace her by 31 October.

Doesn’t a leadership election take 7 weeks in her Party? Add in the summer recess and I bet it’s already getting close to 31 October on that timescale.

She is determined not to let Johnson have any say in it I would imagine.

I'd be quite happy to not let Bojo the **** clown have a say in it.

When you consider that UKIP has infested the local Tory party, the very people that will get to vote for a new leader you've got to figure it's only going to get worse.

Looking at the results of the UK's vote in the EU elections, I wouldn't be surprised if Europe kicked us out now before our elected representatives could wreak havoc for the rest of the European Union.
Who could blame them, frankly I reckon any of us would take that stance if we were similarly threatened ?

So anyway. - If conservatives choose a new fall guy as a replacement for May, Labour will doubtless clamour for an Election ( eh Monty ?? )

Then if they are successful, there is a very real risk that they will have played into the hands of Prime Minister Farage.

I bet Putin is a good chess player.

UKIP did very well in the 2014 MEP elections. That did not translate to votes in the following general elections. The Brexit Party is simply UKIP rebranded. But by calling it the Brexit Party they've managed to convince people that they're the party who will enforce the will of the people.

It's very effective advertising. Even the logo is an arrow telling their voters where to put the X on the ballot paper. Just in case they were unsure. They also told them to use a pen in case those pesky EU sorts interfered with the ballot papers.

What was it Churchill said again about your average voter?

On the Brexit front there seems to be some confusion about a No Deal Brexit and whether or not we're legal bound not to have one. No Deal is the default position and I can't see any change from that.

Why anyone would want a no deal is beyond me. That's not a final position, it's the start. Unless people think we don't need to interact in any way, shape or form with the EU ever again?

It's all just taking too long with no direction.

Someone needs to decide what we're doing and get on with it.

We should have been prepped and ready for a No Deal scenario within weeks of the referendum , and for May not to immediately take it off the table , then we might have stood a chance of negotiating a reasonable deal , Mays deal is awful and will not go through ever , with the EU saying there will be no further negotiations it would seem that a no deal exit would be the only remaining option . That said I imagine it would only be a matter of weeks after withdrawing with no deal before trade deals etc were announced .

If you read the French/EU literature on what would happen with a No Deal, they would effectively have the option to cut the UK off from trade of fresh produce.

Their default is that if the UK wishes to be difficult, then the EU reserves the right to do the same. France would certainly remove the UK border on French soil.

It would be a stupid position to be in and i have no doubt that a stalemate would end up with demonstrations and probably riots on UK streets.

Trade wars only ever benefit the wealthiest...and look who is championing the No deal stance in the UK? Oh yes the very wealthiest.

Boris summoned to court over accusations of public misconduct. Apparently the £350 million a week campaign slogan was misleading.

Excellent news.

Best news of all is the maximum sentence is life imprisonment if found guilty.
