    @TLDR News Regarding the shop: Sadly it seems impossible to collect different items in one package in ordaaa to ship them in one go, could you make it available somehow? (Crewneck sweatshirt and T-shirt for example) Buying seperately seems kind of counter-intuitive and unnecessary

    When BoJo prorogued parliament, it should have been done with immediate effect; taking away Bercow and the other traitors opportunity to deny us Brexit.

    Now that Bercow is winding up his stint as parliamentary speaker, can we import him to run OUR "House?" AFAIK there is NO constitutional prohibition against it! In fact, the Constitution says the House can elect its speaker; no conditions on citizenship, etc. expressed or implied! Contrary to popular belief, the Speaker of the House doesn't even have to hold an elected SEAT in the House. No such person from outside Congress has ever been elected, but nothing says it can't be done. Bercow's got spunk; he's my man for the job!

    Bercow showing his true Fascist colours. He’s defiantly trashed the seat he’s held for too long, the question is has he facilitated the end of the political system & the two houses. I’d even go as far as to say he’s ended the Frauds. A second house accountable to the UK People not the land owners of old, multinationals & the EU.

    • mitch verr
      mitch verr 8 days ago

      @klemthegem But this isnt the brexit we voted for, I didnt vote for a retarded lets just fucking leave without any kind of protocols or prior planning like Boris is doing right now.

      Look up who is currently leading the no deal push and who gives that party money and check to see what else they are tied to, if you need a hint, it has to do with hedges, they stand as a group to make billions out of a quick and horrible no deal crash out.

      They are not your friends.

    • klemthegem

      mitch verr I’m not enamoured with this government, but it’s the party which has finally agreed to deliver the Brexit voted for in by The UK People, endorsed by a General Election, then article 50 was triggered by a vote in Parliament. The remainers have used every dirty trick they can to block Brexit, the will of The UK People. This deal fiasco is just the latest, I have a copy of the referendum, it just states leave the EU or Remain, no deal. Parliament has blocked the Brexit for too long, most of the constituencies of these Traitor MP voted leave, a fact not lost on these MPs. Hence their unwillingness to vote for a General Election. This last point should be enough to put the Fascist point to bed. They are usurping the powers the electorate lent to them when they stood on a pro- Brexit slip, then changed their minds stating for the good of the Country. You may think they know best but I doubt their votes do. Let’s wait & see in the next Gen Election. For Democracy to work the losers have to accept the result or Democracy falls.

    • mitch verr
      mitch verr 9 days ago

      Fascist by allowing people to challenge a government which is his job? Erm, I think you might want to relearn how fascism works, the closest thing to that currently is government, which wants to silence criticism and even removes members for doing it (not to forget hiding all information possible, lying to the queeen, etc)... That is much closer to it.

    This is what neoliberalism looks like; 3 years, 3 prime ministers, all ruined over a referendum to leave a trade agreement.
    A. Simple. Trade. Agreement.
    That is why parliament and the British are at war with themselves.
    Not over labor laws, wages, healthcare, national security, liberty, or tyranny.
    But over one, single, trade agreement.
    Europeans, Britains, answer me this. I thought Europe was a stable bastion of western democracy. Why is it, that one nation leaving a trade bloc, pushes your entire continent to the brink of chaos?
    If Brexit puts Britain and Europe to this brink, I’d hate to see what happens when another migrant crisis, or perhaps, a Russian invasion of Ukraine, occurs. How is Britain and the EU prepared for the challenges of the century. Chinese colonialism in Africa, Russian pressure in the Ukraine, Middle East and Caucasus; Right-Wing Nationalism and Populism.
    How the hell is this Neoliberal programme going to survive against these forces? I honestly doubt it will.

    • mitch verr
      mitch verr 9 days ago

      It isnt a simple trade agreement though, its a massive logistics change which will (yes, WILL) cripple parts of the UK heavily in the short term as shown by yellowhammer. The opposition has a right to also be heard.

      I voted leave, but what you said shows a clear ignorance of wtf is actually happening.

      @mitch verr
      Yeah sure... You voted for leave, wont the vote and now suddenly you think that corrupted career politicians should make the choice instead of the people who MADE DIRECT VOTE.
      "No deal was not the option"
      It always was an option, since it's negotiation tool. But since you have very low IQ you fail to comprehend how such thing can be used in negotiations.
      Hey, think for a second.. Oh wait you can't so let me paint the picture for you.
      EU REFUSES TO HAVE ANY DECENT DEAL. What is the other option than accepting bad deal that basically means you're still part of EU!? Man you remainers really lack mental capabilities.

    • mitch verr
      mitch verr 8 days ago

      @Tespri No, i voted to leave lol, Not a remainer. If anyone here is a fanatic, it seems to be you, given your heavy gatekeeping lol.

      No deal was not the option, even the damn leave campaign leadership said it wasnt the option.

    • Tespri

      @mitch verr
      Do you know where word democracy even comes from?
      It comes from word demos, meaning the COMMON people.
      People voted to leave, not only that but pretty much all party members from opposition and from conservatives had originally promised to deliver brexit. They all said that they will honor the referendum. Yet they didn't.
      parliament isn't democratic, the referendum was.
      "" like no deal brexiteers seem to think. FYI i voted to leave, but I believe democracy trumps this."
      Stop lying, obvious remainer who is EU fanatic. Having dreams of your future fascists superstate.
      No deal was the option when EU refuses to negotiate a fair deal. Which is the case. EU refuses to give a fair deal, instead it insists that UK has to stay part of EU as a vassal.

    • mitch verr
      mitch verr 8 days ago

      @Tespri I ignored nothing, we have a democracy, you cant just go "nah the opposition dont matter" like no deal brexiteers seem to think. FYI i voted to leave, but I believe democracy trumps this.

      He literally sold his country to the EU. Ensures that UK has to accept literally any deal that EU offers.
      "We are not a government dictatorship"
      That's funny... Because you just ignored people's will for sake of political elite's retirement funds.

    Great video. For me, It looks like Scottish and English courts are at odds. I think the Government has done right to the prorogation of parliament is necessary. The people voted to leave the EU. MPs agreed for the people to decide, and we did. we voted to
    leave. All trade deals can be decided after we leave.

    The EU must watch this nonsense on their iPads and laugh their socks off.
    Now we have established the complete lack of credibility in our current MP's, it's time to drain the elite swamp and REALLY return power to the British public by doing away with this 3/4/5 (this week?) Party system for good.

    406 constituencies voted to Leave compared to 242 that voted to remain. That's proportional perspective for you.

    • Neil Desperandum
      Neil Desperandum 9 days ago

      @Rembrandt Shadows Leave won the popular vote, as we all know. This constituency comparison is to show how proportionally it's even more poignant a win. Especially when 40% of Labour voters voted to Leave but 98% of their MPs want to remain.
      This sort of comparison, here with constituency wins, is similar to the Electoral College in the US, where the President is not elected by the popular vote but by a proportioned system. This is to prevent one side from packing urban areas and dictating the way the election goes, as almost happened with Brexit. The Electoral College exists for a very important reason.
      Further to this comparison, with a popular vote a few relatively small areas on the US East and West coast, jam packed with leftist voters, would effectively dictate the election for the entire country if the EC was not in place.
      Trump did not win the popular vote but he won the Electoral College. If you look at a map of America you will see a sea of red conservative. Similarly if you look at a referendum map of England you will see a sea of blue for Leave, and this is because of the vast difference between the number of Leave constituencies (406) and the number of remain constituencies (242).
      It's a useful and poignant comparison, one that is often not seen, even though of course it was the popular vote in this case that counts for Brexit's win.
