Countdown to the end of Democracy in the UK 23:28 - Nov 10 with 1137924 viewspikeypaul



And like a typical anti democracy remoaner he decided the will of the people should be ignored the minute the democratic result was in total fecking hypocrite πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Despite it being voted in to law by the commons the spineless two faced remoaner MPs have totally abandoned any morals and decided to ignore the will of the British people.

It will be remembered and no election or referendum will ever be the same again in this country.

The one thing that will come is a massive surge in the popularity of UKIP or a similar party in the future who stand for the 52%.

Happy Days.

Is there a more depressing indictment of British politics than having Matt Hancock followed by Barry Gardiner both being utterly destroyed one after another by Emily Maitlis,


Barry β€œMr Ineffectual” Gardiner stressing that the no confidence motion wasn’t a one-off event.
Presumably another way of avoiding backing a second referendum.

Disgraceful.

Brexit: Blame it on the banking crisis
By Nicholas Crafts, Professor of Economics and Economic History at the University of Warwick and CEPR

Voxeu, 15 January 2019

Brexit in 2019 and the banking crisis in 2007 to 2009 are usually seen as unrelated events. This column argues that they are in fact closely connected. The austerity policies embarked on in response to the fiscal damage resulting from the banking crisis triggered the protest votes of left-behind voters, which at the margin allowed Leave to win the referendum vote. The implication is that the economic costs of the banking crisis are much larger than is usually supposed.

So who won last nights vote? Remainers or no dealers?

No deal still seems like the path of least resistance.

Interesting/worrying to hear Steve Eisman (the character Steve Carrel plays in the Big Short) is now shorting 3 British banks which he'll cash in after the No Deal recession, and has a list of some 30 odd companies he'll short if Corbyn comes into power.

Interesting that, although a slightly misleading title. As surmised "None of these outcomes was by any means certain ex ante but they were the realised results of the policy response to the banking crisis". Or in other words, Blame it on the Tories. The overly-aggressive, unfair and punitive nature of austerity; the self-defence response to UKIP and threat of ERG on the back benches; the divisive, emotive campaigns (both sides); the clusterfeck since. I don't think anyone should be under any illusions that this isn't a Tory-made mess.

I wouldn’t be surprised if there was mileage in this. Stories in newspapers about the Uber rich and excesses of the City bankers whilst most of the country has struggled with no decent pay rises along with the increase in both EU and non EU migration. I genuinely believe immigration was a huge factor for lots of voters.

soft Brexit is probably the least worst option.

but as the emperor streaks through the city, someone will point out that its not as good an option as EU membership on our current terms.

A soft Brexit would have the added bonus of sending hardline Tory Brexiteers into the dustbin of history where they rightly belong.

I think we would all agree that Mrs May has had an impossible role to play.

That said, what unfolded last night represented on her part the biggest cluster fu ck in British political history.

Listening to Tory mp's in December, a common theme on the radio programme i was listening to was that in trying to work with her, they all claimed that she wouldn't listen.

I'm sure she has many strengths, however, she has been completley the wrong person, in the wrong place at the wrong time.
