The officers scuttled the ship. Parliament is finished, the country is finished, the regime is finished.

Western Europe is collapsing, like Eastern Europe did.

In the little moment that remains to us between the crisis and the catastrophe we may as well drink a glass of champagne.

I'm not sure if the Mods defied the will of the people by shutting down the old thread, or just went flabbily along with it.

Well we weren’t given a vote!

Shadrack22 spoke, we jumped.

After May lost the meaningful vote by a majority of 230 in January, she promised to seek “legally binding changes” to the backstop. But while talks are expected to continue over the weekend, government insiders have become increasingly gloomy about the prospects for a last-minute shift.

One cabinet source said the mood was so bleak some ministers were speculating the majority could even be almost as large on Tuesday. “Feedback suggests that it’s in a similar place to where it was last time the vote was held,” the source said.

At least Arron Banks is enjoying himself, skiing in Italy as his fraudulent campaign drives us over the cliff.

Mancurse, you were fucking right; I posted a lengthy tome & pressed POST to a GRAILS ERROR because the thread had been closed.

And now I forgot what I had said.

To the lifeboats!

What lifeboats?

WibbleAgain - 08 Mar 2019 20:29:58 (#13 of 5757)

What a lot of nonsense.

Believe me, it's not a big deal. You'll hardly notice a difference. That's the bad news.

The good news is, Tories will be destroyed forever, and YouKnowWho will be PM. Britain will finally be free of the EU yoke to be the Socialist Utopia it's always destined to be.

Bubblies are for poncy metrosexuals, aka Remainers and metropolitan elites, and are exactly why the reason we wanted Brexit and Won It. In the Newly Great Again Britain, everyone will like home brew or larger, if they know what's good for them. British jobs for British people, with British wages, affordable housing and a robust NHS served by only properly British staff.

We'll get Our Country Back, get rid of recycle bins, wind farms, poncy little vacuum cleaners and LED light bulbs.

You will thank us for Brexit, and we will forgive you Remoaners for being rude and stupid if you are properly British. Those not properly British can fuck off back to where their parents and grand parents came from.

Never mind the lifeboats, who closed the duty free shop?

roguestate - 08 Mar 2019 20:32:36 (#15 of 5757)

Where would we be without insularity?

WibbleAgain - 08 Mar 2019 20:32:39 (#16 of 5757)

This is New Brexit Britain for you. Decisions are made at the top. Votes are bad. Get with the programme and stop moaning.

Just get on with it.

AlanII - 08 Mar 2019 20:36:42 (#17 of 5757)

Democracy has spoken once and for all, it would be totally undemocratic to vote ever again.

WibbleAgain - 08 Mar 2019 20:40:22 (#18 of 5757)

It is absolutely against democracy to ever question it. It's betrayal to ask questions about the last vote, never mind ask for another vote. Only traitors would do that.

Brussels ruined my brexit thread!!!!
