  2. I hear he's a reformed character now, and will be working to protect people from future egg based attacks - a sort of Poacher turned Gamekeeper.
  3. It's nice that they offer a choice, clear blue water, from Labour's policy of being institutionally Anti-semitic. It gives the floating racist a different option. Racists are very much an oppressed minority and it's nice that some positive discrimination is being enacted to give them the leg up they so badly need - apart from all the newspaper columns, TV guest slots, LBC radio shows they host, and their internet channels - well they're just ignored and suppressed and have nowhere to foam their hateful bile from. Bravo the tories, Bravo for the racisms. Bravo the Labours. Bravo for being nasty to foreigners. Up the Brexit!
  4. Indeed. The rest of the post - I don't see it like you do at all, but that's by the by.
  5. You've confused me (easily done). I don't follow all of the logic. If we revoke A50, then there is no longer any leave negotiation with the EU, no draft deal, it's all gone. There are no "available options", surely? We're just at where we were say 8 years ago - a member of the EU, only this time with a bunch of furious throbbers all pulsing away about betrayal. If we revoke A50, then by definition of ending the process to leave before we've left, then yes, we will stay in. Anyone wanting to Leave is not going to call for it to be revoked, so what you wrote is right, logically, there - but did you mean that, or did you mean anyone calling for a second ref wants to stay in? Because while that may be the case, it is unknowable and utterly of no consequence. They clearly do countenance the possibility of another option happening. A second ref would be (IMO) less divisive than revoking A50 (I'd revoke, 'cus **** the throbbers, it's less bad than any other deal or no deal). A ref on "you asked to leave, this is what leave looks like, do you still want it? " is far less of a divisive thing than "you asked to leave, but no". A ref has the advantage of being able to say "we're not trying to stop it, we're offering you a chance to confirm it". Like I said, if I was King of the Land I'd can it. too much lies etc. Sort out the rest after, but parliament has to be a bit more...edemocratic.
