Countdown to the end of Democracy in the UK 23:28 - Nov 10 with 1246674 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.

Every weekday ten ‘til one playing catchphrase for the achingly woke.

I do listen in quite often as it’s pretty entertaining in between the prolonged bouts of virtue signalling. He’s not too bad at all if you can get past the fact that he’s sat there with his glasses on top of his head and wearing a scarf nonchalantly slung while indoors like some middle-aged tutor at the LSE desperately trying to look hip for his female students.


Can't stand the bloke despite him being on the 'right' side. If only he'd let people finish a sentence.


Anyhow, being reported that an Irish Sea customs border is being agreed in principle. The DUP are going to go apesh*t. Can't see this getting through parliament, but you never know I suppose.

Good, I'm glad you agree.

When I was teaching maths, I used to say "it's just as easy to get it right as get it wrong, so let's get it right, shall we?".

I only had to say that to the dull kids, mind.

Don't know the quote, Loh, haven't read the book, I think I was put off by the Hollywood film version which appeared to my young eyes to be an establishment arse-kissing exercise ("us miners are all out on strike starving to death but we're all going starry eyed and bendy kneed because the king/queen has ordered our choir to come and give a concert at Buck House! What an honour for Welsh toe rags like us, yer Majesty etc, etc").

However, I imagine the character in question is quoting a maths problem along the lines of "if a 10 gallon bathtub with holes in it is being filled up at 1 gallon a minute and meanwhile the water is leaking out blah, blah, blah".

Yes, good point. I tried to make lessons a tad more relevant to the real world. You know, "if Jacob Rees Mogg is salting 95% of his £3 million annual income away in tbe Cayman Islands in order to avoid tax etc etc...."

Media reporting Boris on the verge of agreeing a deal and getting a parliamentary majority for it by the simple expedient of re-naming the backstop. It is now called "this is absolutely not the backstop, no, no way not in any shape or form (OK, it is really)".

If only Teresa May had known how simple it was, eh?

No not in the slightest biased.
"For instance, of 4,275 guests talking about the EU on BBC Radio 4’s flagship Today programme between 2005 and 2015, only 132 (3.2 per cent) were supporters of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU."

All roads lead to Tufton Street don’t they... What a surprise a ‘housemate’ of ‘vote leave’ thinks the BBC is biased against leaving.

That’s is the most incredibly disingenuous statistic by the way.

Boris Johnson would be classed as pro EU for all that period. Just as one example.

It’s not even the May deal. It’s a deal May rejected as ‘not acceptable to any Conservative Prime Minister’.

Who’d have thought...

It's being reported as the 'Nothern Ireland only' backstop. Aka the one the EU proposed originally back in 2018. It's also being reported that a deal is still only a possibility, not guaranteed.

The Guardian have a story on it - https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/oct/15/boris-johnson-close-to-brexit-d

How acurate it is, who knows.

It’s gonna be hilarious watching everyone hail this agreement (if it transpires) as a triumph. Y’know, the same people who called it a betrayal when May negotiated it. And if the reports are right, this one is worse in NI terms.

I wonder who wrote in the Telegraph about a year ago that EU proposals to have a customs border in the Irish sea were "little short of an attempt to annex Northern Ireland".

Surely not...

Aye, and the brexiters that have previously described it as ‘far worse than staying in’ will support it.

At least remainers have a consistent argument. We want to remain.

I am sure that the staunch Remainers won’t like it, but those who are happy to leave with a tidy deal may well be. If it’s the same deal or almost identical to the deal that Parliament and the Brexiteers rejected when May proposed it would certainly say a lot about their integrity and values. This is about the unity of the Conservative Party.

I have always thought the only sensible solution was a border in the Irish Sea, but I am not from NI. If I were DUP voter, given all that’s happened I would be furious, if I were of the Sinn Fein persuasion I would probably be rather pleased.

Not trying to be funny or rude here, but what benefits does anything other than remaining bring the country?

We may disagree with globalism/capitalism but we are too intertwined in it to suddenly jump out.

If anyone can give me a genuine benefit, please step forward

You beat me to it. Is this deal better than the one we already have? I don’t think so but let the people decide. Why wouldn’t they allow the people to have the final say?

What the hell has what brexiters voted for got to do with any deal agreed by our crap Tory government?
I did not vote for a deal I voted for revoking our EU membership.
What deal or deals happened after that would be acceptable as long as it did not involve being tied to the EU.
