Re: Brexit....or in.

I suppose any percentage is technically a fraction, but you used it to imply less than a majority of remain voters wanted a referendum, which seems to be incorrect. Added to that is the fact that those polls show that a majority of remain and leave voters combined want a referendum over an election...

Re: Brexit....or in.

All Johnson has ever been interested in is himself. And it's exactly why he's the last person that should be in charge right now. As to why I think he had no intention of negotiating a deal that would pass is because it's an impossible task and results in political suicide one way or the other. He ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Yes, he was. It was one of the most astonishing interviews I've ever heard, with more of a focus on allowing Boris Johnson to hang himself than doing anything to resolve the situation, be it agree a deal, have a general election or a referendum or anything. The whole premise was they only want a re...

Re: Brexit....or in.

And I maintain that a second referendum is the only way to solve this, with two questions: 1. Do you still want to leave (yes/no). 2 If we leave, do you want to leave with Boris Johnson's deal (& if not revert to no deal in the case of leaving)? (Yes/no). If option 1 has 50% or more, revoke article...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I disagree. Personally, I think a general election needs to come after a final decision on Brexit; that way, actual manifestos on policy for the future can be put forward instead of the speculative bullshit that they would be otherwise. And, whilst I will argue that I believe many people who voted t...

Re: Brexit....or in.

How on Earth can Labour MPs seriously vote against an election now? Alright, the date can be moved, but not by a month and a half. Owen Smith's ludicrous comments on PM were amazing; he was happy to someone suggest it was in the nation's interests to continue to do nothing and try and extend again ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Yep, finally a bit of sense. The argument that "no deal" was "still on the table" because we might not agree a free trade deal at the end of the implementation period was obviously nuts.

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 26 Oct 2019, KO 15:00

I’m struggling to understand how Nyambe can be faulted for any of those goals.... :shrug: First goal is a complete fuck up by the keeper. Second is a combination of Williams and Bennett. There is a slight argument for the 3rd but you’ve just got to hold your hand up and say it’s a great strike. I d...

Re: Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers, Sat 26 Oct 2019, KO 15:00

We can rightly criticise Walton for that flap (although Raya was also well known for bring poor on crosses too) but look at Nyambe's positioning for every single goal conceded. It's appalling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clnUrz_8DcM Which is clearly why he's struggled to break in to the team de...

Re: Brexit....or in.

He petulantly refused to sign a letter he was obliged to do so by law. Are you 100% sure on that? The law said he had to send the letter as set out in the Act, didn't mention that he also had to personally sign it as far as I can see. It may be a petty reaction, but it was in respone to pettiness f...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Let's see. He repeatedly stated we would leave on the 31st October; we aren't going to. He petulantly refused to sign a letter he was obliged to do so by law. He was found guilty of breaking the law when he prorogued parliament. He threw members of his own party out for doing exactly what he did a v...

Johnson fails to take us out by the 31st October. Be interesting to see if he manages to squirm his way out of losing any more credibility by blaming everyone else for his failings.
