    WE SHOULD NOT HAVE VOTED TO LEAVE THE EUROPEAN UNION! Cameron should not have called that referendum. Why did Cameron have to pull out and hand over to poor Theresa May who is unfortunately getting a very hard time at the minute? The British Government made a very misjudged and poor appointment in Theresa May (not because of her, but because of the idiocy we encounter). Poor May did not even WANT Brexit and so she is very brave in this respect. The majority pro-Brexit Cabinet is making life difficult for her, and by voting to leave, the people have brought it on themselves. I come from Northern Ireland, a country which voted to remain - 56%. The DUP are of no use to Theresa May and are nearly disunited over her Brexit Policy. How she came to resort to the DUP, I will never know.

    So I'm an Indian and my knowledge of UK culture and ethics is not first hand, but I would point out that the interviewer's tone here is borderline disrespectful. You are talking to your Prime Minister, sir. Respect the office if not the person. In the coming days of conflict, division and anarchy, respect will be the only possible binding force 🙏

    My respect for Theresa May is dwindling.
    She was one of the government ministers that I respected more.
    Brexit is already a disaster.
    The actual leaning of the EU will be a tragedy.
    Let's not do that.
    We need a second Brexit referendum because the views of the people have changed, there are many polls to show this.

    Erase everything I type if I type something. I think Hemet is where Germans live in the East and French live in the West. The Germans are from Huntington Beach. The French are from Corona. There are Mexicans and Greeks from Perris. There are the communities. There are Chinese and Vietnamese in Royal Gardens, Iranians and Afghanistan people in Four Seasons, Arabs and Indians in Mountain townhomes and Spainards and Greeks in Seven Hills. I think the Congolese are leaving Seven Hills. I think good Congolese can live at Montego Bay gated community in Murrieta. Murrieta is in California. I think there should be boutiques and restaurants in down town Hemet. I think there should be a DressBarn in down town Hemet. I think there should be a Middle Eastern restaurant in down town Hemet.

    Can a Pom tell me why the vote was a 50% plus vote for approval
    Why didn't they make it 55% to 45% or similar for a more defined result.
    Is it law that the vote had to be 50% plus?

    PM May not good at contracts...where is the clause in the DUP £1,000,000,000 bribe that returns our tax payers money if they fail to support her crazy schemes? How did SHE approve this expenditure? Surely it would have to be approved by parliament? May not good at negotiation...The EU deal can only be a deal offered by the EU to ensure the UK is controlled for ever. No sane PM would have agreed to this insane offer!

    Prime Minister May knows very well that Brexit isn't good for Britons and the whole country. She knows Brexit means losses ,bankruptcy of many companies. Brexit means chaos ,enormous chaos everywhere and definetely much less money for many things. Brexit means problems and She knows it very, very ,very well....unfortunatelly some politicians don't think about country but only about their reputation and reputation of party. Stay in European Union and let's remain ... let's remain...!!

    I would just like to say that Theresa May was put in this position when David Cameron left so don’t go blaming her she’s been trying so hard to keep on going and get us the best idea possible and as she says no one else is putting forward any constructive criticism just mocking her and ridiculing her.

    She's not in favour of a second referendum, why might that be ?
    Her answer is, that it is not respectful to the will of the people...but,... is that true ?
    Well, there could definitely be another reason.
    How on Earth will any British politician ever explain, that the outcome of the referendum was based upon incomplete
    information or even (much more true:) wrongful information.
    Did you know, that the most google-ed question the day after the referendum was: "What is the EU?"...!!..
    Where does that leave your politicians...

      , or at least didn't do enough to decently inform the majority of the British people ?
      Admitting this means indirectly that your job as a politician is obsolete, and who will do that ?

    I have never been able to see her as Prime Minister. Everything that comes out of her mouth is scripted. There has been no reveal of her true personality and more importantly no inclination of any leadership qualities. She is simply a soundbite, a mouthpiece for the traitors behind the scenes pulling her strings. Our version of Barrack Obama.

    WALK AWAY. If we were to declare WAR against the EU we would not ask their permission if we could have their permission to do so. Likewise we don't need permission to leave the EU. They are the antithesis of what we Brits have decided is best for our futures and intend to leave. If there is any secret deals etc we will eventually actually go to war with the rest of the rump of the EU. Theresa May wants us to stay in the EU. We must get rid of her one way or another and all who support her.
    The House of Commons BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE. WE HAD a referendum and the MAJORITY of THE PEOPLE. Theresa May is there by the GRACE of the ELECTORATE only. We The PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN.

    Why can’t the vote have been more specific? Instead of simply “leave” or “remain”
    The options could be “remain”, “soft brexit” or “hard brexit”.
    However the two brexit plans could be grouped, so if say 45% of people vote to remain, 30% choose soft brexit and 25% choose hard brexit then there would be a soft brexit as there are more brexit supporters than remain supporters but a soft brexit is the most popular of that group.
    This is not a completely worked out suggestion but it would give us a view on the way the people want the uk to continue with more detail

    She refuses to accept that the wish of the people, is to have another vote. Why, she knows that now we have seen how the UK has suffered and lost strength and value, that all the promises about how the uk would be better off if we left. YOU CAN VOTE TO STAY.
    You have to vote to stay, to rebuild the UK to what it was befor and get stronger by intergrating fully into the European Union , something that was never done by the the first place. reverse the vote before it's too late. for petes sake don't let the shoddy offers on the table.
    MAY WON'T STAY IN OFFICE, she will walk away, with her own fortune intact and leave the next gov to sort out the mess. her argument that it's what the people wanted and would be an insult to have another vote !!!! RUBBISH not everyone got to vote in the first place.... I didn't get to vote as I live in n Francn even the British embassy has failed to reply to my requests for information on how i can vote.
    IT'S A SCAM, look at the damage done by less than the full population had they all been able to vote!!!! THAT'S WHY SHE IS SO SCARED.
    FOR A NEW VOTE. Now we all know the real effects of the threat of leaving, we can all make a new descision on the FACTS .
    The power to save the UK is in YOUR HANDS, it's you that will suffer if you let MAY destroy this country and run away. The pound has fallen and will continue for years to come.

    Uncle Sam, Mr. Putin and China simply cannot bear another powerful political-economic block to compete against, and therefore they are triggering all these internal quarrels amongst the European populations.

    May’s political future: hopefully, none. Her handling of the Brexit situation has degenerated into an unprecedented crisis. She could have chosen the EEA option, she could have chosen the WTO option, and whichever the choice, she could have executed it well. Instead, she negotiated an idiotic half baked half house that makes no sense and cannot execute on it.

    She's vile and she has no clue. In all walks of life we have imposters, blagging their way through their work and May is Britain's chief imposter. The Brits have embarrassed themselves (along with the Yanks and Trump) by ending up with May in office and their old fashioned views of the world re: Brexit. The Leave campaign was made up sinister forces who cheated their way to a slight win, and voters can't even own up to it. Soldier ahead off the cliff 'for Queen and country'. Idiots.

    If Universal credit is better than the current system then you wouldn't need to "learn as you go along" What the government is saying is that they will make it a better system no matter what the consequences. The whole point of a welfare system at all is to protect and support those who are at a financial hardship, Yet the roll-out of universal credit has only made things more difficult. Also why is there a need to punish people arbitrarily for being unemployed. There was recently a case where somebody was unable to attend a jobcentre appointment and her benefits stopped because she was attending her mothers funeral. The poor are always made to feel like they should be greatful and the government and media always like to highlight cases of benefit fraud, Yet very rarely do they highlight the extreme poverty that some people are living in. In some instances people are having to choose between feeding themselves or feeding their children. Only today I heard a story about a man who died from malnutrition because his benefit payments were cancelled due to being unable to attend just one appointment. There is a huge divide between the rich and poor in this country and if similar things were happening in Parts of Africa or Asia than all you would hear in the media is how outrageous it is and Britain must intervene. To be honest If I could revoke my British citizenship I would but unfortunately I have no other nationality. I'm ashamed to be British at the moment because of the way the Government and media treat people. Britain is literally the most corrupt country on the planet who refuse to help anyone in need or if they do make that person feel no self worth whatsoever. Yet at the same time are so concerned about politics and corruption in countries thousands of miles away.

    The central question is,,,what role can the Queen as Head of State play in the present situation Since the Government controls the Order of the House then the House as a whole cannot influence events,,,it is powerless, But 90 percent of the House is opposed to a No Deal Brexit, Here the Head of State has a role, But in the UK the situation is complicated,,for the dominant view is that the Queens power/prestige/popularity depends solely on her NEVER using her constitutional powers, First Royal Paradox,,,the Queen is powerful only if she is powerless Technically the Queen has divested almost all her reserve powers to the PM,,,but constitutionally under The Royal Prerogative she may still be able to exercise some of these divested powers,You think this an arcane question.It is not,,,it goes to the heart of democracy in the UK.The situation is less complicated in the 15 other Commonwealth Realm countries,The Queen is Head of State of 16 countries world wide,,,in 15 of those the Queens reserve powers are vested in The Governor General,,,and NOT in the PM, The Second Royal Paradox ,,,,in the 16 Commonwealth Realm countries the Queen has the LEAST power in the UK,The Queen should act only at a time of constitutional crisis,This could occur if Mays Deal is repeatedly rejected in the Commons and a No Deal is inevitable,, Constitutionally the Queen should have the same -powers as a Governor General,These powers are 1,withdraw the PMs commission and appoint someone else who has the support of a majority in the House, This may be a National Unity Government, 2 Withdraw the PMs commission and call a General Election Should the Queen withdraw the commission of a PM who commands a majority in the House, No,,,except at a time of constitutional crisis,Would the repeated rejection of Mays Bill be such a crisis, The Queen could consult her Privy Council or The Lord Chief Justice, But now we have the First Royal Paradox again, If the Queen tried to exercise her constitutional powers in the National Interest some would call out INTERFERENCE Britain is alone in the world in having a Head of State who is powerless,,even though she has constitutional powers,Would the Queen put the National Interest above the interests of the Monarchy, Should she, It was inevitable that one day the flaws in the English Constitution would appear,The First Royal Paradox is alas,,not a paradox,,, but a contradiction, A powerless Monarch is not powerful,,,but only powerless, God save democracy,

    What Brexit reals means: The Brits are the idiots of Europe. They have given up a top position in the EU and they are now the slaves of the EU and have to pay - with or without a deal but with no end! Indeed - the British Pound can´t survive this! And if Scotland and Nothern Ireland maybe Gibraltar will leave the UK then the End is near. What a disaster! And after the Brexit disaster, the Brits start a Re-Brexit disaster - what does this mean? A Re-Brexit means that the Brits are Idiots again and again in Europe with NO End. I ask me how much money the Brits would pay for a Re-Brexit?
    But nevertheless, don´t worry, be happy, take it easy!✌✌✌✌✌✌✌✌✌✌😁🤢😂🤣😢🤔
