Thatís her ****. Itíll probably win through shear incompetence and apathy, as no-one will be able to come up with anything better. Itís this or remain and I think there will be one last hard push for a referundum or to call it off.

In all honesty itís a bit of a travesty how badly itís gone. But they were warned.  Virtually no one is standing up and saying this is a good thing. Weird times.

We really are terrible neighbours. Europe must be sick to death of us.

Been watching the news with interest these last couple of days.

Legal advice has now been published and the Tories are really in disgrace.  It's a very, very poor show to be held in contempt of parliament.

My interpretation is, still that you cannot have a hard Brexit without breaking up the UK because of NI.  If that happens Scotland will become independent in due course.  Is it worth it?

I still think the only solution if Brexit is to be implemented in an EEA/EFTA option like Norway.  There is simply no other way through.  The top brass don't want that as it's perceived to be the worst of both worlds
 (even though it isn't).  Are we ambitious and flexible enough for this compromise?

Some have been warning of this for some time...

Any thoughts?

Well the way I see it, the Meaningful Vote next Tuesday is not the end of it. It is not even the beginning of the end etc..

Labour want a General Election, SNP & Plaid Cymru want Independence, Green Party who knows, DUP want their cake and eat it, Lib Dems are currently irrelevant and there is schism in the Tory Party. We don't handle change very well.....

Common themyis of course that they are all politicians and oh interested in their own agendas, Brexit per we is almost irrelevant.

That's doubtful to say the least. Norway is sounding like they'd block that...

I get the distinct feeling that the public and the politicians are poles apart on this topic at the moment.

As I understand it, this could go several different ways. What is the point at which the EU cave in?
