This is the place for reasoned comment or questions about Brexit …. Posts must stay respectful at all times even when we believe that other posters are wrong.

Will an extension be announced tomorrow? If so how long?October 24, 2019 at 8:13 pm #93244
Given everything that has happened recently , when will we leave , or will we stay?October 24, 2019 at 8:18 pm #93246
Pops – Will an extension be announced tomorrow? If so how long?
apparently Macron says 3 weeks, Others say 31/01/2020?
Any extension must be unanimously agreed by the 27 National Leaders ?October 24, 2019 at 10:39 pm #93262
I would expect a compromise, 20th December or possibly 10th January. If Macron digs his heels in perhaps sooner? I think patience is wearing thin in Paris and other capitals and, of course, with the public here. Any extension could gave conditions attached?October 24, 2019 at 10:51 pm #93264
My goodness I go away for a few hours and come back to my thread being pulled lol.
Pretty sure the EU will give the extension we have asked for.October 24, 2019 at 11:46 pm #93270
I think that if I was an EU negotiator, or EU head of state, I would have given up a long time ago. The UK “team” is a joke. They don’t know what they want, they don’t know when they want it, they don’t know how to get what they might want, and they don’t know what they will do with it if they get it, or not. Need to order in more popcorn.

I read a lot of his articles in The Guardian and Irish Times. A voice of sanity in an increasingly insane world. Unlike the UK press, he actually writes and doesn’t just recycle party press handouts.October 25, 2019 at 7:28 am #93303October 25, 2019 at 8:34 am #93311
I am confused.
Corbyn says ‘No Election until No Deal is off the table’
What does it mean?
There are only two ways to take No Deal off the table:
Pass the deal, or revoke Article 50.
Labour opposes both, favouring seemingly endless delay.October 25, 2019 at 8:39 am #93314
Pops my cinema thread has just started just to let the regulars know thankyou

As this is a new thread, I thought a little history on the subject of the vote for independence from the EU might be in order.

The Government have officially accepted we won’t be able to leave the EU on October 31st. In an interview with BBC Breakfast this morning, the Chancellor Sajid Javid said Parliament had blocked Brexit and that the EU looked like it would now offer a three-month delay.
I am shocked, I tell you. Shocked!October 25, 2019 at 9:20 am #93324

We shall find out the time of any extension, the PM has said if there is no election, parliament and the Government will basically only do whats essential. I don’t think we will get a 3 month extension, perhaps 3 weeks and we have to back to the EU or possibly a 10 week extension to just into the new year. I agree with others parliament is simply going round in circles, a bit like a spoilt person saying I dont want this, or that etc without saying what they actually want. As a side, I didn’t watch QT last night but ZERO Mp’s on the panel according to the TV guide, a 1st!October 25, 2019 at 10:25 am #93329

Boris said no ifs or buts we were leaving on October 31st

Contemplation within Brussels concerning possible extension with consideration appropriately given to conflicting characteristics and considerations sifting and weighing evidence prior to conclusions. Westminster must, of necessity similarly ascertain direction and decisions must be reached giving due and full consideration all factors issues and considerations notwithstanding decision of EU could make redundant any such decisions or conclusion reached. The public is watching closely and with eager anticipation so the referendum result is honoured and the country can commence focussing on Euro 2020 and other sporting matters. Parliament needs promptly to reach acceptable solution which is pleasing to the 17.4m.October 25, 2019 at 11:30 am #93342

Another Tory Mp standing down at the next election that makes about 24 if I am correct. Will they be filled with more extreme right wingers?
Be careful who you vote for guys it could come back to bite you in the bum lol.October 25, 2019 at 12:28 pm #93349
More extreme right wingers Brydo? Really? Aren’t you just being a little bit provocative?October 25, 2019 at 12:33 pm #93350
Not at all wigwam I don’t think I would be out of order to suggest this cabinet is the most right wing in years, the ERG are pretty right wing and can account for anything between 40 and 80 votes. The Conservative party is going only one way and I’m surprised you don’t see that.October 25, 2019 at 12:34 pm #93351
A bit too provocative for this new thread and we hear the EU has agreed an extension but not it’s length yet.October 25, 2019 at 12:36 pm #93352
I wish everyone happy debating but I am going to conclude with this post. For me there have been too many unsavoury and provocative posts and I no longer wish to contribute to this or be part of it.October 25, 2019 at 12:39 pm #93354
Brydo, you see things your way. I will be looking at the policies of the various parties as we approach the election that the Marxist cabal in the labour party is currently denying us. I will then not be at all surprised if the Conservative Party follows conservative principals. On the other hand I will be very surprised if the other parties follow their traditional principals.October 25, 2019 at 12:43 pm #93357
If there was an election I wouldn’t know who to vote for so I may not bother voting
