politics, labour cause its a tory plan, Scotland cause all they are interested in is Scotland, lib/dems have said for awhile that they will vote against any deal, dup cause they don't understand politics, if it is a desent-ish deal and it doesn't get passed God help them all in the next general election... its a firm fact the only good man to enter parliament was Guy Fawkes.

Eh up Dave, not too sure Guido Fawkes was a good man, but like many of the current lot in Westminster failed to deliver.

Hopefully,after recent events,the accusations about Boris not wanting a deal can be ignored?

Hmm, maybe, maybe not FUA.

'Hello voters, just got back from Brussels with a deal to tickle your belly buttons (to self: I know it will fail the test in Parliament). I truly want this deal for you (to self: personally I couldn't a toss because I know it will fall at the first hurdle - leaving me the good guy). No need to thank me - just your vote next time will suffice.'

You old cynic... are you suggesting  that politicians are motivated by self-interest rather than acting for honorable or unselfish reasons? 

I'm shocked Barry :doh:

'Hello voters"

I think everything a politician says should be pefaced with those two words.... especially now

Scotland's highest civil court is set to consider a legal bid to stop the UK government from passing its proposed EU withdrawal agreement.

If Parliament is sitting tomorrow they'll need to get a move on.

Do you support the deal? Isn’t it being reported that the deal is the same as mays, but with a tweaked backstop? I thought mays deal was terrible? 

It's not a backstop any more - it's a front stop.

One that creates a customs border between mainland Britain and NI, when Alexander de Pfeffel himself said (to the DUP conference in 2018)

"No British Conservative government could or should sign up" to regulatory checks and customs controls on the Irish Sea, adding that to do so would be “damaging [to] the fabric of the Union.” : 

https://www.newsletter.co.uk/news/politics/watch-boris-johnson-tell-the-dup-in-2018-he-would-never-put-border-in-the-irish-sea-today-he-put-a-border-in-the-irish-sea-1-9110754

 

But it's what people wanted, right? It's a 'fair, balanced deal' according to the dear leader... It's what they voted for, which they knew was what they voted for. It's democracy.

Your talking party politics to a national crisis.

It was never a good idea to have the referendum..... it was irresponsible to have it without knowing the actual mechanics of the process..... and stating the decision to honour the result without knowing was reckless.

The whole of parliament is responsible for the mess we are in not the people who voted on the question asked.

Brexit should never have been a party political issue..... the Tories screwed that from the beginning, everyone else jumped on the bandwagon sadly..... they dug a whole and seem to keep on digging.

Geo, I'm not talking party politics, that's a framework that you are attaching because that's the way people try to make sense of what is happening. From what's occurred with splits, defections, etc in Parliament, that's not necessarily useful, it's only part of the picture.

It's clear that the referendum was a farce. It's clearer still that since then, things have become increasingly more farcical. That's like saying the sky is blue.

My point is that the system is working exactly as intended - providing forum for debate, for opposition, for nuance as there should be, yet there are hypocrites who claim, nay justify, leaving the EU on the basis that it prevents the UK from being "independent", from being able to do exactly what it is currently doing. Based on the last 3 years, do you think Britain will thrive as an 'independent' (lol) country? Have our leaders demonstrated themselves to be pantheons of wisdom, innovation, strategy? Have people reached out to understand beyond their own narrow worldviews, or tried to increase their knowledge of how things work? This thread is a microcosm of the entire tawdry spectacle.

Any crisis is not the cause of politicians inaction, but the symptom of a truly dreadful idea in the first place. You only have to look at the people that champion it to think - is this really a good idea? Jacob Rees-Mogg, Mark Francois, Andrea Jenkyns, Ian Duncan Smith, John Redwood, Steve Baker, Owen Paterson, Andrew Bridgen, Kate Hoey, Julie Hartley Brewer, Nigel Farage, Arron Banks, Timothy Martin. Shall I go on? Do these sound like the kind of people that the UK should be thinking - do you know what, those guys know what's best for us?

You talk about liars,the biggest liars are the EU who stated that the would never open the withdrawal agreement.

Isn’t the main change (the Irish border solution) something the eu originally suggested but boris said he would never accept?

Lol at the fools thinking this proves Johnson wants a deal.

He had negotiated a deal he doesnt think has a chance, he will <ovf censored> himself if this gets passed through Parliment tomorrow.

 

Quite literally he and the usual suspects on here, point scoring with everyone's future...  sad and pathetic individuals.

All because people have decided leaving the EU is the most important issue in the world ever, even though NONE of you gave it a second thought prior to the referendum being called.

You could have added jezza to the list.

Boris wants to win an election. Championing brexit will win him votes. If it gets through parliament, which I doubt, he will be the people's champion, if it falls the blame will be deflected onto any suitable candidates.

Being stuck in limbo is the most important thing to the people it affects, leavers and remainers.

Yes,he's playing a blinder here Barry.

When all the Remainers vote it down tomorrow in parliament they will all be branded the naughty guys,who never wanted a deal.

It will trigger a general election and the jobs a good 'un.

Talk now that DUP will vote against it not just abstain, thus throwing the DUP under the bus part of a dastardly plan?
