Probably should be Stewart, a compromise for the Leave and Remain vote, accept the deal and leave the EU with the economy relatively intact, further changes to the departure to be negotiated in the future years by whomever wins GE.

Most likely will be Johnson, a complete laughing stock, UK will end up not leaving the EU (no deal not happening), end of the tory party, General election to Labour and Diane Abbott becoming the home secretary.

Labour won't win. The Northern Leaver Monkeys are now Nige's men and the Remainers hate Corbyn for facilitating Brexit.

There are no other items on the political agenda any more. There are more people in work than in the history of the universe, even though a good percentage still need Benefits to be able to live. Socialism for the employers! Nobody cares as long as we Brexit - or don't. It's as if we openly embraced being Ruritania. We've even had a bit of the Mouse that Roared, attacking China with an aircraftless aircraftcarrier.

How embarrassing!

Can't see another election coming until the Tories have elected a new leade, and even then I can't see one coming. Under the last tweak of the rules (2011), terms run for the full five years unless at least two-thirds of all MPs vote for one. That means 434 or more MPs, which is all but 216. As things stand, that means more than 102 (ish) Tories would have to vote for an election knowing full well that they're going to be wiped out. I can't see that happening.

I don't think there's an appetite for an election from the parties, the people or MPs. 

Now then...

So it's Johnson, with Farage as Roving Ambassador, or chlorine washed chicken and the privatisation of the NHS is off the menu?

There’ll be a feel good factor from a new PM and promises to sort Brexit blah-de-blah. It’d be further loss of faith in democracy if they refused to back a general election IMO. I also don’t think it would be a case of the Tories getting wiped out.

A Boris lead coalition of the Tories, Brexit Party and DUP is our best option as things stand.

Labour will regret not backing May's compromise.

Teddie, your dry sense of mischief is truly appreciated by Hullards and citizens of the wider world.

Or May's capitulation, as it ought to be called.

Her deal meant that in legal terms, the UK left the EU - exactly as 52% voted for. The vote was not to leave for a better or equable deal, just to leave.

True, but by all accounts May's deal only just scrapes into that definition. If someone like Trump had been negotiating the exit, it would have been far more convincing. The threat of a no deal exit should have been used during negotiations, even if there had been no intention of going through with it, or at least left hanging in the background. The endless dithering and the fact that the Commons is overwhelmingly on the remain side means that more and more now people favour the no deal/WTO option. The referendum voting slip could and should have carried more than just yes/no, but it's obvious retrospectively.

It seems to me we had this great idea to escape from the chains of Angela Hitler and go for independence and freedom. With Trump and his chlorinated chicken and sanctions on trading partners (and any other fuckers he feels like).

Go for WTO. They have no rules whatsoever. Do they?

There's a possibility that Farage will hand Jeremy Corbyn victory to enable him to become the next but one (unless Conservative MPs implode even further) Prime Minister.
