Thatís it? Should go well with their zero hour contracts and stinking working conditions. We will see what happens with workers rights that the EU maintains.

It appears that Bojo has little if any interest to explore alternate options for Brexit based on adjusted red lines so one assumes he will charge ahead unless stopped by Parliament.

Perhaps I am too pessimistic, and Bojo will request an extension by 19 October to reconsider the Brexit options and a new approach. Lets see.


He wants no deal. He stands to clean up if this happens. An absolute yank puppet.

The level of conversation on here has plummeted to child like levels in the past month or so. Itís occurred with the arrival of new posters, and the departure of old ones. Itís all so banal.

I think that when you look at the history of this thread, you can say that the discussion shifted from the economic side of Brexit (where the people who sought hard to find any pro argument basically left this site/thread) to the political side of. The latter being complete chaos as we can all see in the news, and the current state of the thread is therefore a projection of this? Fact remains that there are not so many people supporting Brexit anymore. Reality has sunk in. This by the way, has been stated already in the beginning of this thread
Dusty is probably enjoying Africa. Hopefully he reads a bit more on WO1 to come to a good understanding of the history of the 20th century.

Itís getting close to the edge now, so itís more towards the emotional than fiscal or political level.

I despise almost every one of our politicians. I believe they are generally self serving scum, and I believe thatís generally the case worldwide. Theyíre not politicians or leaders, theyíre shysters, snake oil salespeople and orators. Theyíre completely unfit for purpose and Parliament is nothing but an expensive pantomime.

If voting made a difference to how the country would be run, they would ban it. Democracy is an illusion. The entire political platform needs ripped apart and started from scratch, and instead of merely being run by economists, accountants and self serving parasites, heads of society and genuine chosen leaders should be appointed. Iíve had enough of the career politicians who have left university with the aims of becoming a politician, gaining a modicum of power, retiring on a parliamentary pension and disappearing into the sunset with a book to write and the imbeciles amongst us funding this, too.

I donít know if there are many fellow fans of the post-punk, Mod revivalist band The Jam, or The Style Council, but my God, their material written in the 70ís and 80ís is probably more relevant today than then!

Paul Weller wasnít just a musical genius, he was also a prophet!

All true.

Also, how many times one can repeat the same points? Discussion here goes in circles, gradually loosing participants.

I'm not going to convince Bowater that Brexit is stupid thing, he is not going to convince me that it is good idea. I can just as well end serious participation.

Cheeky remark from time to time is the maximum effort I'm willing to make. Life is too short to spend too much time in this thread.

Unless of course I get bored in winter and change my mind

No I'm not.......oh sh*t, I just did. Doh!!

Anyway, glad to see the conversation really hasn't moved on or improved in my absence (not that it was great when I was part of the conversation tbh). My advice to everyone is: move on. Get your lives back.

True Dusty. But you can also say that we sincerely want to fight the state of the world we are now in, and of which Brexit is a sad part. A part, in my view also driven by the oil (fossil fuel) corruption, and the people that back it because they profit from it: Russia, Trumps' USA and so on. Because: can you imagine a world in which their money assets are actually transformed? They fight hard to make us locked into their world, no matter what the cost.

These people should be trialed. We all see the devastating effects of climate heating, and there is a relation with Brexit, breaking the EU means breaking the resistance of possibly the last civilised world.
