Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Well firstly a caretaker government could decide to hold a second referendum and then an election if that is what the people forming the caretaker government agree to. I have been thinking, and I had the impression from what I'd read, the care-taker Government being touted as going to do one thing ...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Possibly not what Johnson wants? If Corbyn is prepared to forego being PM, for the time being, it is possible that Labour, Lib Dems, SNP, Greens and the various rebels might all vote against the government in a confidence vote on condition that somebody other than Corbyn becomes the PM in an interi...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Well, I gotta say, I'm worried. I can entirely believe Johnson would abuse the law, as per tin-pot dictators world-wide, to introduce a fake State of Emergency to get his own way. This guy is a profound threat. Problem is, election now and Cons win. Labour is utterly beyond the pale - the Economist ...

Where does "Gove" come into it? I can't see his name mentioned anywhere.

In the House of Commons? :-) ;-)

I thought it was where the adults left their kids for the day while they go to work ;-)

(I'm kidding of course. The MP for where I lived in the UK is a very rational, sober and decent chap.)

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

People who agree with the court are aghast at the violations of democratic norms being pursued by the Conservative leadership. This issue is I fear being wholly or almost wholly overlooked by those wishing to leave the EU. I always cringe when someone puts up a strawman argument then suggest they k...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

There's a fairly hefty part of the country which is now unwittingly in favour of a profound increase in State power While I do enjoy your tales, do you have any evidence of this other than having a chat with your mates. I suspect it is not true and people are looking in horror at the actions of the...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

I had a brief chat with my example rich, old friend and he is of the view the judiciary went political and are now in the Remain camp. I suspect this may be a general view. There's a fairly hefty part of the country which is now unwittingly in favour of a profound increase in State power, so they ca...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Well, it's all very interesting and definitely a bit schadenfreude, but I wonder how much difference it will actually make.

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Interesting article from The Independent. https://news.yahoo.com/brexit-boris-johnson-accused-being-112100790.html Opponents of Brexit have accused Boris Johnson of being “out of his depth” after claims emerged of a “penny dropping moment” during his meeting with EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker earlier ...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Thankyou for that, Kilkis. I had rather lost the plot; I couldn't see what on earth Johnson was up to. It made no sense to me. I think it plausable and I can't see any alternatives. The Cons party has tried to solve Brexit on its own, and failed. Getting Labour on board is necessary. Ejecting the To...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

While a forum such as this debates (vigorously and interestingly) the finer points of Brexit, never forget this: hedge funds have bet over £8 billion on a fall in the £ arising from a No Deal Brexit. The U.K. is going to be subject to the most almighty financial scam. The question immediately comes...
