    Second referendum vote didn’t go to well, the party that has it as a conference agreement seems to have forgotten to vote.

    Both the main parties are split on what the right outcome is.

    Sadly, when you work for the Home Office, the B word is on everyone's lips pretty much all the time. The media have whipped up a frenzy with respect to documentation post-Brexit, which caused HMPO's online application servers to crash last week due to the panic applications being made from the public who believe the crap in the Daily Heil.

    Every month we have a team brief on a given subject by our directors. Guess what it was this month....

    I started the brief (to 16 team members) by asking for a show of hands as to who voted in 2016. 15 hands went up. I then asked that would anyone vote differently now, if the referendum was re-run. No hands went up. I then said its therefore pointless spending the next hour arguing over this issue, so lets eat the pizzas we ordered in!

    The story so far.


    The Government of the day decides to give us a simple in/out referendum on EU membership, confident that we’ll vote to stay in.
    The British public decide otherwise and vote to leave.
    The man responsible for calling the referendum resigns.
    The Government sits down with the EU and spends two years trying to negotiate a deal that will at the very least keep most people happy.
    The man responsible for negotiating it resigns.
    His replacement carries on, then resigns.
    The deal is released, and everyone hates it; MPs vote it down by the largest percentage in Parliamentary history.
    So Parliament is given the task of voting for what comes next.
    In no short order, we see MPs vote to rule out leaving with no deal, but that vote isn't binding.
    We see the Withdrawal Bill, this time with added guarantees, voted down by Parliament.
    We see MPs from both parties split and form a small independent group with the express intention of reversing Brexit completely.
    We have the Opposition saying there should be a second referendum then changing its mind, saying now isn’t the time.
    That same Opposition called for a vote of no-confidence, lost that, then demanded a General Election. Which no one listened to.
    We have a vote that says we need to extend Article 50 – for a short time if everyone accepts the deal that was voted down twice already – but for a longer time if the deal is rejected yet again.
    Oh, and the idea of walking away with No Deal has been rejected by Parliament, even though the Brexit deadline is legally binding, and can't be extended without the agreement of all 27 other EU countries.




    Now if I could build a time machine, travel back to 2010 and come on the Goat and say “hey you lot – THIS is what the political landscape of our country will be like in 9 years hence”, how many of you would have believed me?

    And does anyone else find Barry Gardiner one of the most irritating people on the planet?

  5. This from Stephen Barclay brexit secretary


    Barclay said: "It is time for this House to act in the national interest, it's time to put forward an extension that is realistic."

    And then he voted against it.

    Like being asked if you want the lights on or off and then spending months bickering about who gets to turn the dimmer switch.

    All these records mean nothing here’s a couple of ones I’ve found;

    In Jun 2016, Jeremy Corbyn voted to say the UK needs to stay in the EU.

    However

    In Dec 2016, Jeremy Corbyn voted in favour of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union and in favour of starting the process by 31 March 2017.

    God knows what he’s saying now, is it general election or second referendum.

    We can all find stuff in the internet which politicians have said but the quite from barclay was before he went to vote last night.

    Glad to see you agree with my point that just about all politicians of all colours and all levels say or do one thing one moment and will then go and the opposite the next minute.

    The important point people are missing is that it's the Tories who are driving the Brexit talk. If May can't get her cabinet on side then what hope is there. Over half a dozen of her cabinet voted against her last night not forgetting her chief whip and a couple of other whips. It's not Corbyn who is involved in talks so whatever he's got to say is irrelevant.
