    That was probably the best deal they were going to get. It seems impossible to leave the EU without a hard border either in Ireland or in the Irish Sea. There is a small chance now that Brexit will be abandoned. Although the politicians argue that the referendum result must be delivered, it is also true that the public were not adequately briefed about the issues at stake when they voted.

    So, whatcha think's gonna happen? And whatcha think NEEDS to happen?

    This is what happens when politicians lie to get a desired result. Farage lied, Johnson lied, Gove etc. They all carry the blame for the situation in which Britain currently finds itself.

    Brexit failed again...
    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...ain/ar-BBUGSrw

    Prime Minister Theresa May's EU withdrawal deal has been rejected by MPs for a second time, throwing her Brexit strategy into further confusion.

    MPs voted down her deal by 391 to 242 - a smaller defeat than when they rejected it in January.

    The PM said MPs will now get a vote on whether the UK should leave without a deal on 29 March and, if that fails, on whether Brexit should be delayed.

    She said the EU would need to know what use any extension would be put to.

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the prime minister should now call a general election. She had earlier warned MPs that if they did not back her "improved deal" they risked "no Brexit at all".

    On Tuesday, there will be a full day debate followed by a final vote on Mayís deal. It is currently expected to be rejected, in which case votes on the following days will seek to clarify the way forwards.

    They should have hired Trump.

    So far, a total of 11 MPís from the Labour Party and the Conservative Party are standing together on the centre ground of politics, fed up with anti-semitism in the Labour Party, and no-deal Brexiteers in the Conservative Party. There is no new Party at this point. Some people are calling for By-Elections.

    The craziness is getting well out of hand.
    Interesting. It's been reported over here that they were forming a new party, with a platform and everything.

    I probably should do exactly that, but I am somewhat distracted by the worry that if break dancing became an Olympic sport it would loose a degree of authenticity.
