    The fact is the e.u will fragment and break up if and if we ever leave. The default position is to stay.if we had stood our ground with threat of no deal the eu would have definitely buckled and caved in.
    Sadly the people in parliament in opposition have denied us that opportunity. Fools every one of them.

    Whether you vote Conservative, Labour or otherwise....I think a lot of people will agree that the mother of all parliaments has become nothing more than a circus. These people who for the most part are acting not by representing their constituents but by their own personal opinion are making us a laughing stock. This kind of behaviour is just embarrassing, laughing, pointing, holding up little pieces of paper they have drawn up. Really??!
    People, atleast since 2016 often identify now as Leave or Remain. And whichever way you feel, i don’t see how anyone from any side can disagree that these people governing us or indeed opposing the current government are acting like spoilt school children.
    I will find it very hard to vote for any of them ever again.

    David always blamed EU for his failings the three people who run the entire press in the UK, ran a negative EU line so all the population voted with the wrong information, there was not a democratic process, I reject the first peoples vote completely, Cameron is a coward, Boris is a Royalist, A democracy only exist when the people have the knowledge to make a choice. A person who says we got to hold the view of the vote is misled and ignorant of what a democracy about. Try this question. Is, the truth first or the vote after the lie? what is your idea of Democracy? also the papers giving Politicians columns to write in for favours is also undemocratic, it is what Benito Mussolini did to become a populist, is this right Stephen Kinnock Labour MP for Aberavon, this is your column is it not in the Guardian! also Boris has a column too.

    They make all this fuss over closing down for 4 extra days? Yet theyve had over 1000 days to sort out brexit and all they have done is stall.
    Remainers funnily enough accept nothing but remain, leavers want to leave but now there are two leave methods and the numbers arent there to back any option. Remainers wont pull the trigger and remain as they know they will all suffer in a general election, the opposition know they wont win a general election yet have enough power to stop one from being called democracy in the UK is dead.

    The ones shouting shame on you and the ones with banners are the real traitors...the MAJORITY of the country voted to leave in 2016 and they are trying theyre best to make us stay

      @Joe morgan i dont think you know what your talking about...ill tell you what a referendum is :- its a general vote by the electorate on a single political question which has been referred to them for a direct everything your saying about them not having to follow through is not true...what they are doing is actually unlawful, Boris Johnson is actually following the law, he asked the queen to prorogue government and she holds more power than anyone in the country (which i think is right) he actually hasnt done anything wrong

    • Chris Coveney
      Chris Coveney 10 days ago

      @Joe morgan when you voted what did it say on the ballot paper???? It said stay or leave (it didnt say anything about a deal) and the MAJORITY of the country voted to leave so thats what should happen no matter what because we live in a democracy....we had a voye in 2016 and everyone had theyre chance to vote - the remainers and the leavers and the MAJORITY voted to leave just because the remainers lost they want another referendum

    • Joe morgan

      People voted leave not no deal. Also, the brexit vote was a definitive 'This is going to be acted' vote. It was a referendum to ask the public. The government could've not gone through with brexit and just got the result.

    Corbyn and Labour are cowards. He said he would vote for an election after that pointless Bill gained Royal assent...he lied! Still, a "no deal" Brexit won't be as damaging as a Corbyn Government would be.

    Divided as in Parliament V The People. The Mass Unwashed are now scrubbing until they bleed and taking note of what is taking place. As they always expected the majority of politicians are not for the people or democracy and only for representing themselves.
    I can see exciting times ahead and a new political system - OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW.
    I am not normally a rebellious person being an ex-solider, but watching what is going on. I see most in parliament as traitors.

    Why can’t they just carry out what the people voted for? Cameron said multiple times, it was an in-out referendum. People voted out. They can’t turn around and then ask for a deal. That’s not what we were told. They just can’t accept that the people don’t want to be ruled by an unelected elite.
