I am still hoping against hope that the people will be given a proper choice including a "stay in the EU" on the ballet paper. A people's vote is the only way the public can say what they feel about Brexit.

The Labour Party is playing party politics in calling for a General Election. That is not a vote on Brexit as many of us will be voting for a candidate for all sorts of reasons. My vote if I choose Tory (current MP) or Labour would count as I live in a swing seat. Most, like macliam, can vote for anyone but the current MP but it will not affect the vote as they will win anyway.

My choice is like that of many, do I stick with my party which will not be in the top two when the votes are counted or do I vote Tory to keep Labour out or Labour to keep the Tories out.

May's £1m bribe bought the support of the DUP explicitly for Brexit. Looks like the DUP is no longer going to honour their side of the bargain.

I don't blame May for breaking any promises to that unholy bunch, doesn't say much for her judgment to bribe them in the first place. The DUP siding with Labour feels unnatural .

Theresa May, 14th November 2018 wrote:When you strip away the detail the choice before us is clear – this deal which delivers on the vote of the referendum, which brings back control of our money, laws and borders, ends free movement, protects jobs, security and our Union, or leave with no deal or no Brexit at all.
Yes, Theresa, many of us have been saying this for months - give us the choice between your deal (which Parliament won't approve), no deal (which would be catastrophic for the UK), or staying in the EU.


Given the savaging she's had today, she's almost the only one supporting her deal. Rees Mogg has already submitted his letter of no confidence. Which leaves a shit option and a safe option. Which way would you vote?

So, have you developed a system for removing the eggs from an omelette, or do you just presume someone else has? :eh:

Of course it would be quite legitimate to argue the case the other way. if this deal is worse than the one we have, then it could be better to stay in rather than "Just get us out".
