    It sounds like the German dominated EU, is not much more tolerant of other peoples aspirations than the German dominated Nazis were.

    Britain has lost all sovereignty.

    I think the EU should have sanctions slapped on them for this.

    “John says we should be out already. He thinks we should have just told them we’re leaving and left and he doesn’t think we should give them any more of our money. He says we can compete with the best in the world. He says it used to be Made in England, didn’t it, not Made in Japan or Made in Germany. He says Theresa May is too weak to stand up to them, and I said, ‘It’s a hard job’, but John says if she’s not up to it she should let someone else in who is."

    Brexit was one of the issues discussed on this week's episode of Any Questions?



    Jonathan Dimbleby presents political debate from the Stoller Hall in Manchester with a panel including the historian and journalist Simon Heffer, the Chair of the Conservative Policy Forum George Freeman, the President of the National Union of Students Shakira Martin and the Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry. The panel discuss the issue of the Irish border post brexit, a further referendum on leaving the European Union, £2bn funding for social housing and the future of the railways.

    I fear Britain has missed the boat as far as the railways are concerned. Europe has invested heavily in rail transportation post war, over the years, as one can see from the efficient high speed trains in operation here.

    Even North Korea has electrified train lines, as I saw in a TV documentary last week.

    Emily Thornberry? No thanks!!

    Brits should be furious that their vote counts for nothing. At least you still have a queen....

    A very interesting discussion, well worth watching.

    Can and Should Brexit Be Stopped?

    Chatham House 6,794 views

    Published on Sep 17, 2018

    Andrew Adonis contends that, as the UK enters the end-game of Brexit, a false choice has been offered to British voters and to their politicians: a catastrophic ‘no deal’ Brexit or Prime Minister May’s likely ‘blind Brexit’ which takes Britain out of the EU and into a transition period with no guarantees about any future relationship with its closest neighbours and partners.

    He makes the case that such an outcome is profoundly undemocratic and antithetical to the interests and aspirations of the British people, explaining why, therefore, that he believes Brexit must be stopped and how this can happen.

    In a couple of weeks Labour members will vote for a second referendum. That will give remainer tories and the other remainer parties something to build on.

    May will then not have the votes to see through any shitty deal she has or even a no deal.

    She should then resign. But more likely is that she will be ousted and an election will be called.

    The final act will be a second referendm which will put this shitstorm to bed.

    And then we can get on with rebuilding the damage these idiots have caused.
