    I think I was wrong, I was being hasty. Think after the march and the petition, looking better.

    Just going back to:
    Here is a new article from a different author explaining the conundrum a bit more, specifically referring to the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018.

    And:

    It's complicated (who would have thought?). Apparently section 25(1) of the EU Withdrawal Act 2018 provides for continuation of North-South co-operation in Ireland and the prevention of new border arrangements. So any border infrastructure would be in violation of the UK's own Withdrawal Act. It also turns out that the repeal of the 1972 European Communities Act has to explicitly brought into force through a statutory instrument (section 25(4)).

    Political Myopia... everyone is/was so myopicly focussed on one element of brext, may's deal or whatever to the virtual exclusion of all else.

    Also anyone who even attempted to take a step back and examine the larger picture was shouted down or sacked.

    Is see May's doing the equivalent of sticking her fingers in her ears and shouting la, la, la, I'm not listening.

    There's not going to be a vote on her deal today, she's going to whip to reject indicative votes, and if she somehow losses that she's not going to take any notice anyway.

    It's more like she's offering around the hot potato that nobody wants.

    She is in full 'avoid answering the question' mode and misconstruing questions so that she can equivocate till the cows come home.

    To paraphrase twitter-

    Not sure who is more useless; May or those who've repeatedly failed to get rid of her.

    Citizens Advice: 'You automatically get a 14-day ‘cooling-off period’ when you buy something you haven’t seen in person'.

    Where's our Brexit cooling-off period now we've seen it in person and know what it would look like?

    Ironic that the government gets to keep trying a vote until enough people change their minds that they they get a result they like, whereas a certain other vote is completely irrevocable and the idea anyone could ever change their minds about it is incomprehensible.

    Given who these people are, the choice of name is unlikely to be an accident.

    Pretty sure, sadly, it's Grand Dragon for the KKK.

    I've taken something of a 'break' from Brexit since the extension, I feel like it's going to be the same meandering back and forth ******** that it's been for the last three-ish years.
