With David Davies gone and Boris Johnson gone, and openly going cap in hand to the Opposition to support her plans, Theresa May is going to have to dump the Chequers White Paper or one Minister will go after another...….I don't see any other option now?
…….and there was a 2nd Referendum, as the "Peoples Vote" brigade (oh the irony) want to have, how would you vote?
Hypothetically if the question was:
a) Accept the Current Deal (assuming it doesn't get watered down further) or b) Leave the EU with No Deal in place.
I'm appealing to people here, don't let this be hijacked, no insults and petty points. Just a statement of how you voted originally would vote now, and why?
So to kick off:
I voted Leave. I would vote to leave without a deal. I would do so because I believe that the only way of the UK getting the deal it wants is to negotiate from a position of full Sovereign Independence.
My view is that Remain leaning ministers will push for something as close as possible to the current customs arrangement, Brexit leaning ministers will reject this and a fudge will be reached. Brexit Ministers will think "lets just get Brexit over the line - and then iron out details of the Brexit we want at a later date".
But, and this for me is the key point. The EU still have to accept what the UK Government puts forward which we know they are not going to do. I'm becoming more and more convinced that the EU will reject any proposal, try to force a collapse of the UK Government and hope that the electorate returns a Government committed to overturning the Brexit referendum.
Really interesting case this. Whilst I don't agree with their views on Gay Marriage, I find myself sympathising with the bakers. I don't see why they should be legally forced to accept custom if it contravenes their religious views, especially as it is a Private business on their Private property.
Live and let live works both ways, is how I see it.
I hear a lot from pundits about how "special" the atmosphere is on European nights at Anfield. Having never been there, does it feel like a different stadium to the run of the mill? I've been to Celtic Park on a European night (I used to live in Scotland for almost a decade) and it was spine tingling.
Are we starting to see evidence for why it's better to redevelop your existing stadium, rather than move? Fans and pundits constantly bemoan the lack of atmosphere at new grounds and there is no doubt that extra 1% from the fans can help the players.
Random OP I know not very well thought through but it's been in my head on the way to work this morning! Discuss.
She has essentially said that the Russian Government is "highly likely" to have carried out a Chemical Attack on the United Kingdom, using a "military grade nerve agent" developed by the Russian Military and threatening hundreds of British Citizens. This is incredibly worrying.
On another note, Mr Corbyn in his response attempted to conflate donations from Russian Oligarchs to the Conservative Party with this act. Disgraceful.
