MUST happen and could propel May to massive majority on June 8

But it's bollocks because it implies that only the Conservatives are
committed to Brexit and Labour is fishing in a smaller pond of
Remainers. That's obviously not true, because Labour has made it
perfectly clear that it is committed to leaving the EU. Demanding
scrutiny over the exit terms is only "remaining" if you are an imbecile,
such as the author of that article.

Was the interviewer hoping that Corbyn would promise to take Britain out
of the EU even if the only available deal would plunge us into the
deepest ever recession with rampant inflation and huge job losses?

Is that what you'd like your Prime Minister to promise?

You're changing the point. What I wish for is not germane (except to ask
for clarity and honesty from politicians).

I was merely responding to the assertion that "...Labour has made it
perfectly clear..." -- showing it to be not exactly accurate.

'nuff said.

So you are arguing here that Labour are committed to leaving the EU
while elsewhere you have argued that Mrs May, once she has her huge
majority, will turn round and tell us we are not going to leave after
all.

And "demanding scrutiny" over the exit terms *is* remaining when your
yardstick for a good deal is that it must be exactly the same as what we
have now or the UK must negotiate in perpetuity, while remaining a

Labour are as committed to leaving the EU as Theresa May.

Her large majority after June will however enable her to reverse the
referendum decision without fear of any repercussions, if she decides to
do so.

Not at all. To expect a deal that gives us free movement would be really
foolish, and Corbyn has stated openly that Brexit means the end of free
movement.

You seem unduly suspicious that Corbyn would want to block Brexit. He
has been in favour of leaving the EU for many years.

The only repercussions would come from within her own party, as always
with the Tories as far as Europe is concerned, and at the next election
from the people.

So, no repercussions to bother her at all then.

As David Cameron recently pointed out, to her embarrassment, one purpose
of achieving a large majority would be to enable her to stand up to
those in her party who want an extreme Brexit. The only logical
interpretation of that is, she must be able to call off Brexit if the
only available deal is an "extreme" one which could damage Britain.

No, that's re-writing what you've quoted, which said it would enable her to:

"stand up to people who want an extreme Brexit, either here or in Brussels".

If it meant 'those in her party' as you maintain, she would need a large
majority over the rest of her party not, as the general election will
provide, over the opposition in Parliament.
Post by The Todal

That's obvious. She's involved in a negotiation, and if you knew
anything at all about negotiation you'd know and agree exactly with what
she's been saying all along that 'no deal is better than a bad deal'.
That's so fundamental and obvious, I'm surprised that nice Mr Corbyn
hasn't been explaining it to you and other Labourites who are hard of

Sorry, saying some things that are a teensy bit critical of certain EU

Votes in Parliament are not free votes. The opposition votes against
government motions as a matter of principle. It's the 'opposition'
after all.

What you need to go on is what he's said in the past when he was free to
speak his mind. But that's virtually nothing, and certainly does not
amount to being in favour of leaving. Indeed, if he had been he'd
surely have campaigned to leave, not campaigned to remain and got his
party to campaign to remain.

It's ludicrous to suggest he's always been in favour of leaving. He's
only in favour of leaving when he's not in favour of staying in, and
that we never know.

No, you've misunderstood. No deal might be better than a bad deal but it
would still cause the British economy to plunge into recession and
inflation. I think if you really want to catch up you need to watch the

You seem unduly suspicious that Corbyn would want to block Brexit. He
has been in favour of leaving the EU for many years.
That seems a good re-writing of history. How come none of us knew?
A question best directed to the editor of your favourite newspaper.
http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/04/14/ten-quotes-prove-corbyn-undoubtedly-eurosceptic/
Sorry, saying some things that are a teensy bit critical of certain EU
policies does not amount to having 'been in favour of leaving the EU for
many years'. That's therefore just a lie.
I suppose you'll be telling us soon that he's always been in favour of
Trident too.
You seem unable to understand the nuances of politics. You can only see
people who campaign for Britain to leave, and those who campaign for it
to stay.

Her large majority after June will however enable her to reverse the
referendum decision without fear of any repercussions, if she
decides to do so.
The only repercussions would come from within her own party, as always
with the Tories as far as Europe is concerned, and at the next election
from the people.
As David Cameron recently pointed out, to her embarrassment, one purpose
of achieving a large majority would be to enable her to stand up to
those in her party who want an extreme Brexit.
"stand up to people who want an extreme Brexit, either here or in Brussels".
If it meant 'those in her party' as you maintain, she would need a large
majority over the rest of her party not, as the general election will
provide, over the opposition in Parliament.
She knows her Eurosceptics are few in number but try to exercise undue
influence
Then we can add political history to the things you know nothing about.
There have always been huge rifts in the Tory Party over Europe, and
it's been the most divisive issue in it for decades. It was to put an
end to such divisions that Cameron decided on a referendum and embarked
on his fruitless tour of all the European capitals to seek reform.

There are many, many Eurosceptics in the Tory Party and they are still
there.

, and she wants a large number of tame Tory backbenchers to
Post by The Todal
back her against her own Eurosceptics.
You don't seem to understand. The general election won't achieve that
and isn't designed to. The number of Eurosceptic MPs may well increase
actually because they will support her policy on Brexit. She's no
longer batting against the Eurosceptics but for them.

The only logical
interpretation of that is, she must be able to call off Brexit if the
only available deal is an "extreme" one which could damage Britain.
That's obvious. She's involved in a negotiation, and if you knew
anything at all about negotiation you'd know and agree exactly with what
she's been saying all along that 'no deal is better than a bad deal'.
That's so fundamental and obvious, I'm surprised that nice Mr Corbyn
hasn't been explaining it to you and other Labourites who are hard of
learning.
No, you've misunderstood. No deal might be better than a bad deal but it
would still cause the British economy to plunge into recession and
inflation.
So you say. But they're not the only alternatives.

At the next election, the people will continue to vote Tory if they are
Tory voters.
Post by Norman Wells
So, no repercussions to bother her at all then.
None whatsoever.
Then not only do you not understand negotiation but you don't understand
politics either.
You're another dreamer who imagines thousands of voters on the streets
of Britain demanding a Brexit that will take away their jobs and public
services.
Well, we're having a general election in 4 weeks time, aren't we? We'll
see then what the voters on the streets of Britain want.

That's a remarkably daft observation. The voters on the streets of
Britain aren't choosing between Leave and Remain. In case you missed it,
the referendum was about a year ago.

Instead, the voters will be deciding which leader will achieve the best
Brexit deal and which will be the best guardian of the NHS, the
education system and workers rights.

Whatever the result of the general election it won't tell you whether
thousands (or millions) of voters prefer a Brexit with job losses and
inflation and recession to a change of mind and Britain remaining in the EU.

We won't know whether Brexit will involve job losses and inflation and

If the negotiations go badly, I am confident that Theresa May will be an

IMO that's exactly right. The EU will insist that the final deal is
worse than membership. We and they will be diminished to some degree.
There will be a race to build international trade.

Two things about that, though. First, do you, Ian, as a Remainer, see
that the EU is making its stipulation in order to protect its union, not
to do what's best for its people or their prosperity? Can you see that
it is behaving as it always has and putting politics above economics and
that it is, therefore, good in the long term for our prosperity that we
are leaving?

Second, say that it takes four years from now to build equivalent trade
to make up for any EU trade we lose. Can you see that we don't need to
stop there? In the years after we have "broken even" we will be able to
continue to build global trade and overtake where we would have been if
we had remained in the EU. In other words, do you agree that Brexit
should make us better off in the long term?

You're another dreamer who imagines thousands of voters on the streets
of Britain demanding a Brexit that will take away their jobs and public
services.
Well, we're having a general election in 4 weeks time, aren't we?
We'll
see then what the voters on the streets of Britain want.
That's a remarkably daft observation. The voters on the streets of
Britain aren't choosing between Leave and Remain. In case you missed it,
the referendum was about a year ago.
Instead, the voters will be deciding which leader will achieve the best
Brexit deal and which will be the best guardian of the NHS, the
education system and workers rights.
I'm glad you recognise that.

Whatever the result of the general election it won't tell you whether
thousands (or millions) of voters prefer a Brexit with job losses and
inflation and recession to a change of mind and Britain remaining in
the
EU.
If only there was some effective opposition, eh?
Again, I don't think you understand.
We won't know whether Brexit will involve job losses and inflation and
recession for a few years yet. We have to wait for the outcome of the
negotiations. There's little point in anyone pre-judging the outcome
of negotiations now.
Well, we DO know that whatever deal we get with the EU, it won't be as
good as the one we already have. All we can hope for is that the deal(s)
we get with the rest of the world more than make up for what we lose.
IMO that's exactly right. The EU will insist that the final deal is
worse than membership. We and they will be diminished to some degree.
There will be a race to build international trade.
Two things about that, though. First, do you, Ian, as a Remainer, see
that the EU is making its stipulation in order to protect its union,
not to do what's best for its people or their prosperity?
Don't the two go hand-in-hand?
Post by James Harris
Can you see that it is behaving as it always has and putting politics
above economics and that it is, therefore, good in the long term for
our prosperity that we are leaving?
It's arguable that the EU has indeed deviated from / expanded beyond its
original raison d'être. However, the UK's aim should have been directed
towards reforming the system and the goals - even though this was
apparently like hitting our head against a soft brick wall. A referendum
to give the government the mandate for us to leave if we continued to
get nowhere might have been more effective - and might even have got a
more convincing majority. We could have had a strong ally in President
Marcon, as I believe he also wants EU reform.
Post by James Harris
Second, say that it takes four years from now to build equivalent trade
to make up for any EU trade we lose. Can you see that we don't need to
stop there? In the years after we have "broken even" we will be able to
continue to build global trade and overtake where we would have been if
we had remained in the EU. In other words, do you agree that Brexit
should make us better off in the long term?
I certainly don't want us to end up WORSE off - but my crystal ball is

For as long as I can remember the EU has pushed one way and the UK the

the UK has yielded more and more. And the supposedly precious vetoes
were given away. Things the UK gave away were, once given, gone for good.

Are Macron's reforms the kind that the UK would like? Aren't EU reforms
always for more and more integration, more and more central control?

ISTM the mindset is: Things are worse since we last centralised powers
but if we took _more_ power we could fix it. Hence they suck more and

Moreover, a clear yes-no vote leaves no room for doubt. We're leaving.

Not any more. They were once the archetypal 'professionals', but that

I wonder what MM will make of this...
Rise of the 'Re-Leavers' who voted AGAINST Brexit but now believe it
MUST happen and could propel May to massive majority on June 8
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4506710/Rise-Leavers-voted-AGAINST-Brexit.html
I know some of you don't like the Mail, so here is the source survey...
https://yougov.co.uk/news/2017/05/12/forget-52-rise-re-leavers-mean-pro-brexit-electora/
But it's bollocks because it implies that only the Conservatives are
committed to Brexit and Labour is fishing in a smaller pond of
Remainers. That's obviously not true, because Labour has made it
perfectly clear that it is committed to leaving the EU. Demanding
scrutiny over the exit terms is only "remaining" if you are an imbecile,
such as the author of that article.
So you are arguing here that Labour are committed to leaving the EU

And "demanding scrutiny" over the exit terms *is* remaining when your
yardstick for a good deal is that it must be exactly the same as what we
have now or the UK must negotiate in perpetuity, while remaining a
member.
Not at all. To expect a deal that gives us free movement would be really
foolish, and Corbyn has stated openly that Brexit means the end of free

You seem unduly suspicious that Corbyn would want to block Brexit. He
has been in favour of leaving the EU for many years.
I am duly suspicious of all politicians.

I wonder what MM will make of this...
Rise of the 'Re-Leavers' who voted AGAINST Brexit but now believe it
MUST happen and could propel May to massive majority on June 8
Could it be that the turkeys who wisely voted against Christmas are now
agreeing to it - because they've been told it's actually going to be
great fun pulling the crackers?

The Mail has the largest circulation in the UK.

The Guardian is a lefty failure.
No wonder as it's filled with drivel.

Why do you break up url's?

Is it because wrapping is good usenet etiquette, for some reason? A bit like snipping?
