Brexit Bounces too

Post by kevinchess1 » Tue Jul 02 2019 2:28pm

So,
The cross party talks collapsed without agreement...there's a surprise
TM gonna have ANOTHER go at getting her 'Deal' through..that wont happen. so what next?
The Tories will have the leadership contest and will PROBABLY elect someone Pro Brexit.
And it wont make any difference
Parliament wont allow a No deal. there isn't enough support for it they could try and go back to Brussel to renegotiate (Good luck with that( so they will have to ask for ANOTHER extension
If the EU had the sense/bottle they would refuse another extension(I mean what really is the point) and force parliament to choose between No deal or canceling Brexit. Honestly that could go either way
I diu that Brussel will do that
I suspect they would push us towards a General election, our 3rd in 4 years
I was worry about having a 5 year fixed term parliament Guess i didn't need to be
After a General Election unless there is a Landslide, the incoming government will be in exactly the same position as the current one
I'll be dead before this is resolved
Makes me yearn for the time when we worried about Nuclear war
As always this is 'Just-my-opinion.'

Good to see our new MEPs and representatives of the United Kingdom are contributing in a constructive manner to our pending withdrawal.

Given that no deal would be the worst case scenario, and we won't accept the existing deal, we need to renegotiate something. So we're going to start that by pissing off the other negotiators. Anyone would think they haven't thought this through.

The one who turned their backs are from the Brexit party. They want to leave with no deal. Coiuld not care less what others think of them. My question is. Do they realy expect to be taken seriously when they act childishly? But maybe it just reflects the general state of the political scene in the UK.

I don't suppose the Brexit party MEPs will be turning their back when salaries and expenses are being paid.

They could look to the example set by Sinn Fein MPs who don't receive a salary or pension and only claim expenses to cover the work they do locally for their constituents. But perhaps they're more likely to follow their leader and rake as much as possible despite having almost the worst attendance and voting records in the entire parliament...

Mmmm considering 29 new members of the new Brexit Party all attended the opening day of the new session of the EU Parliament I would say that's 100% attendance...!?! :wtf:

Besides, all UK MEP's are only going to be there until the end of October anyway and the way the EU works nothing will be decided of any significance in that chamber by then!

Would you?
It's hypocritical of them to take up seats in a Parliament they believe our country should not be part of, and even more so to take the money. I hope I have more integrity.

And besides that, it's unnecessarily rude.

So what would you do if this was your job and only source of income?
