Theresa May says we are leaving but clearly her deal is nothing of the sort. We couldn't really be in a worse mess than if that deal goes through.

Has she lost the plot?

No deal is better than a bad deal! Well old love you and your advisors who as civil servants should not be in the room

You bought us a bad deal. Now follow what little honesty you have left and go. You have done enough.

It seems Teresa May has a plan B which if she loses her deal in Parliament,  is to have after many 

statements not to, will propose a second referendum.

Surely if true someone had better send in the letters of no confidence in her and the  Conservative 

party.

If Teresa May   her advisors or Others  try to ignore the referendum result or  call for another vote. 

Dare I say it could end up in  total anarchy.

As indeed there could be total anarchy as a result of a No Deal food/medicine/plus lots of other things as well, shortage.

There will always be shortages of something. We had a shortage of Co2, farmers are now facing a shortage of hay/straw and I sometimes have a shortage of money, but it is nothing to do with brexit.

Be a bit difficult for people to live without life saving drugs........

 

And yes I expect people would, and already do say, we need more police, navy ships etc

But the way they are financed is by way of taxes. And to pay taxes people need to be in jobs. And a No Deal Brexit threatens lots of UK jobs.

 

And as for cars. Well, all those Mercedes, VWs and Fiats will be no prob for the EU. They can just export them to somewhere else instead. Japan perhaps?

I thought we were debating Deal or No Deal.

Is it over then? Has it been sorted? Has anyone told T. May?

 

I heard Boris Johnson on last week's Andrew Marr show say that he would take personal responsibility if people were to lose their jobs because of a No Deal brexit. He didn't define what he meant by that though. I wondered if he meant he would pay the mortgages and bills and suchlike of all those who would lose their jobs in this country as a consequence of a No Deal Brexit.

Or whether such a claim was just another load of b/s from him.

As far as I know they all do, but he got a man hanged on his lies. Remember he had weapons of mass destruction--- it was proved he  had none. And he gloried in it.

So reports from various sources of mass atrocities at the hands of Saddam is twadle (sic).  Really?

That allegations that he had weapons of mass destruction subsequently turned out to be questionable is a different matter. 

(Although of course the two issues are related).

How many people have been killed in the countries that he was in control of or  not in control of in the Middle East? Syria, Afgan, Iraq and the like. America will not release the figures, and that is not twadle.
