Re: The Will of the People

...I may be completely wrong, but I can't imagine for one second the EU saying an extension would be granted if the deal passed would be considered substantial changes *to the deal*. You may be correct. I have no idea. Personally I don''t think it is a substantial change but Bercow might, for a who...

Re: The Will of the People

The statement by the EU professor may be the opinion from the EU side, Phil, but as far as I am aware UK law applies in the UK. The UK Act states explicitly that the UK leaves on the 29 March. If an extension was granted and the UK then did not amend the Withdrawal Act, the ECJ might subsequently ru...

Re: The Will of the People

...1. That adds up to 100%. This isn't correct, because there's always some percentage who are undecided. What's up with that?... He is not quoting how people voted but how each constituency voted. In each constituency some voted leave, some voted remain and some didn't vote. Those that voted were ...

Re: The Will of the People

The EU always held all the cards. It doesn't matter what you propose the EU simply says, "Yes you can do that BUT these are the conditions". The conditions derive directly from the rules laid down in EU Treaties, Directives and Regulations so you know what the conditions are going to be be...

Re: The Will of the People

Leaving at 11:00 pm on 29 March 2019 is unconditional in the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 .* If no specific action is carried out to change that Act that is what will happen. What action could be taken is fairly limited. If the EU grant an extension, whether long or short, the date specified...

Re: The Will of the People

Mr Bercow has just thrown a spanner in the works. Under a rule that dates back to 1604, the government is not allowed to put the same motion before parliament more than once in the same parliamentary session. The current session ends in July. He stated that he allowed the second vote because the cla...

Re: The Will of the People

Hmm....I am not sure why Warwick attributed the comment re Eton and PPE to me?... I wasn't attributing any comment about Eton PPE to you Maud. My statement about Eton and PPE was in response to your comment: ...It alsways amazes me how politicians end up in jobs, (Health Secretary etc) when they ha...

Re: The Will of the People

... and now we know what Brexit will actually mean.....to both trade and every day living costs etc.......we cannot take in to consideration all the facts Keltz mentions in his final paragraph above and aim for a softer Brexit, or even a second referendum. I am not sure we do know now. We will part...

Re: The Will of the People

I am no lover of May and I am a remainer but I can also recognise that what May is trying to do is the closest thing to what leavers voted for in the referendum that is achievable given the constraints. People were told that we could stop paying into the budget, stop adopting EU laws, end jurisdicti...

Re: cremation in Greece

If anybody is contemplating repatriation to the UK for cremation I would advise them to get the person issuing the death certificate to include a precise medical cause of death not just "natural causes", which can be quite common. In the UK a local coroner can authorise a burial of a repat...

Re: EU joke(s)

1 Everybody has the right to whatever sexual activity they wish provided it is with the consent of the other person. So no, I do not believe it would be right to impose chemical castration on somebody else but yes, I should be able to impose it on myself if I so chose. 2 I don't think anybody thinks...

Re: EU joke(s)

I'll give you a simple example of regulation that works for the benefit of people, Toebs. When I was young hardly anybody had a television and hardly anybody had a car. Every time a car drove past a house with a television both the sound and the picture were wiped out. It was an irritation rather th...
