That'll do nicely, perhaps now they will do what they were told to do ln 2016 and the country can move forward at last.

According to some reports Boris intends to bring his deal back to Parliament next week. I wonder how many will oppose it this time around ? Labour to abstain or carry on a useless battle ?

I had to chuckle at the Green MP Caroline Lucas who apparently tweeted words to the effect of ""no Boris, you do not have a mandate for Brexit, more people voted for parties offering Ref#2".

I can't see this continual whinging about having another referendum going away, not until January 2020 anyway. And once we have left, then I'll have no problem at all with a political party setting themselves up with a manifesto to re-join the EU.

You mean Yorkshire isn't independent?

It's not the impression I get from people here.

Basically I think she is daft banging on about it now. Wait until Boris has made a mess of Brexit and it will be easy peasy. OTOH if UK does better than expected it might be dumb to jump ship now. Out of the EU and the UK - smart! Main industry Whiskey and wet tourists.

Which way do most of the lorries travel from Scotland to the continent? Think the Irish border is a bit tricky? How will the EU consider an English / Scottish border? Not too keen on break away states - Catalan etc. How does wee Kranky propose to pay the ?50 billion (?) for the Bank of Scotland? Or is she fine about the BoS being owner by the great satan - London. Etc Etc.

Simple way to ensure a positive IndRef2 vote would be to include England in it I would have thought! ( I may be a bit biased here as I have a Scottish cousin and have endure this constant whinging bleat for many decades.) Quite a few professional Scots near here, all mad keen little Bravehearts. 'Course they all live in Bucks or Surrey. :)

Biggest laugh from Election Day was a photo in the paper of Diane Abbott out and about doing electiony things wearing a different shoe on each foot. Can?t be trusted to put her own shoes sims it up!

Be fair, she can probably only see her feet in a mirror!

There's doubt been cast on that matter as messages have been posted that that odd-shoes photo has been modified, that there are other photos showing two normal shoes, but then further doubt has been cast saying that the doubting messages are themselves fakes and that the photo of her posing at the same location showing two normal shoes was taken after she had time to go change shoes.

Such is the mess of UK politics.

We also have had 'hordes' of Labour supporters doing a 'democratic' protest march outside Downing Street, protesting that the election result was wrong. :roll:

No. Alas, Dianne Abbott got re-elected with her own little landslide victory.
