Countdown to the end of Democracy in the UK 23:28 - Nov 10 with 1129200 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 😂😂😂😂😂😂

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.

It’s not all bad.

Duty free returns so we can all fill our boots on booze and fags. Staff shortages in the NHS means issues with treatment, reduction in population and that solves the pensions crisis.

We’re all winners!!!


Duty free had limits. The current situation doesn’t so it’s far better than the outdated duty free.

As if buying a couple bottles of plonk and a cheap pint in witherspoons (I know) will make Brexit worth it. Lol.

Well quite a lot of the food that we eat doesn’t come from the UK does it.

And even the food that does sometimes uses packaging or ingredients from elsewhere.

And even when that’s ok, to get it to the shops requires lorries (held up at Dover) and diesel (oops).

The food that isn’t affected just becomes more expensive. So that’s fine.

Are you suggesting btw that there has been a lot of work done in the last month and a bit to make things loads better but the government has chosen to issue a document that makes it looks worse than it is? For the sake of it? Lol.


Well it seems you obviously know more than anyone. After three years of lies on all sides, you actually know the outcome...of everything. I'll just bask in the glow of your knowledge.

Yellowhammer is the best guess of the experts in each different Government department. It may prove to be correct, it may prove to be totally wrong, but it's the considered opinion of the people that have spent their careers analysing such things.

I'm really not sure why anyone would ever look at such a document and totally dismiss it just because it doesn't play nice with their chosen political view. Why on earth would anyone choose to be so blind? It's utterly bonkers.

I certainly don't dismiss YellowHammer. My opinion and posts here point out that I would be horrified if we didn't have a worst case scenario plan. It would be totally incompetent and a damning indictment of any Govt if this document didn't exist.
I disagree however with people who say that the contents of YellowHammer are gospel, and that everything contained in it WILL happen. It most certainly will not. I am however in the minority on here it appears in having this belief.

Looking at the form of our various governments over the past few decades they’re due to get something right at some point surely? You have to take these things with a vat of salt due to the fact they’re almost always wrong with every prediction they ever make.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

Yellowhammer isn't worst case. It's base case. The most likely scenario.

Rosamund Urwin who secured a copy of the document last month is saying that the document she had was the Base Scenario which I take to be the very least we can expect, today’s publication is the Reasonable Planning Worst Case Scenario which is a big difference. Could it be things have dramatically improved in the last month, an optimist has taken over or someone is trying to pull the wool over our eyes?

https://mobile.twitter.com/RosamundUrwin/status/1171864228879372289

I can’t believe the sum total of the planning amounts to 5 pages, it’s radio rental. Someone’s taking the .....

Leadsom says the document should be kept secret so as not to concern people.

https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/brexit-news-andrea-leadsom-says-nodeal-

I suspect someone will eventually leak the full version, its just staggering how much contempt these politicians have for the law. I suspect the more that comes out the more people will turn against the government....and still the Brexiteers cry Project Fear.

Fair play, a 5 page modified summary is a pretty good effort considering they've been frantically deleting texts and scouring servers for any incriminating emails too.

Johnson denies lying. He says the high court in England agrees with him, but that is a lie.

The high court didn't rule on him lying, they ruled that prorogation was not a matter for the courts. As far as I'm aware the government lawyers made no attempt to back up the governments reason for prorogation.

It’s pointless. Yellowhammer, which was written as a base case, updated as a base case and is still thought of as a base case, has gone from being properly described as such, to described as ‘reasonable worst case’ (whatever form of bloody English that even is), to the right wing media today calling it ‘worst case on steroids’.

Meanwhile hedge funds are gambling on British companies failing (that’s jobs by the way for those who don’t understand) - that’s what they WANT to happen and those that haven’t accepted it for three years continue to not accept it while making teenager ‘ooh swotty know it all’ type comments on here towards those trying to point out the reality egged on by people who can’t admit they’ve been taken for mugs.

Umm, it was Monmouth who made the post about the IQ.

I was simply replying to him.

Have a look - I’ve answered every one of Luther’s many posts to me in a reasonable, measured, polite manner. Because he can’t find fault in the content he resorts to insulting me. As though it was school.

Lisa, for what it’s worth I think they want to be taken for ride. It’s better than the feeling of being ignored. It will only become a reality for them when it hits home. Egged on by Littlejohn in the press they lap it up!

Regarding the shorting of the pound, I had a discussion with a client this morning... he’s telling me that some of the guys working for him are loving a no deal and that some one is going to be making millions out a no deal on the pound by shorting it. So short sighted! Client has already (last year) made provisions and started to relocate to Holland. His employees are obviously not happy as some will loose their jobs. What he’s doing is protecting his business whereas those shorting the pound are speculating. I thought I might loose that business but I’m not, thankfully. Found a fantastic German firm with which we’ve partnered on this, but the business will be done in the Euro and not Pound.

Indeed. Johnson was interviewed earlier and stated several times that it was a worse case document. He was not pulled up on it. Just watched Politics Live on the Beeb and the same happened there and wasn't corrected. Very poor.

An interesting comment on Sky News though. Said that the argument of whether it's base case or not isn't the important thing. It's the things the document admits to, the lack of preparation, the sheer impossibility of preparation due to the interdependence of the supply chains, that are going to be constants of every estimate.

They won’t “lose” they will hedge but they won’t benefit as much

Where they will lose is stricter regulation on financial services and that is bad for them long term

Of course if we no deal “cutting red tape” will be the order of the day
