A question to Labour voting Remainers out there who still back Jeremy Corbyn despite yesterday's abysmal showing and the gaslighting defence he gave. Why?...

The registertovote.eu site has been closed down at the request of the Electoral Commission.

The Electoral Commission said: “We urge EU citizens that want to vote in the European parliamentary elections in the UK to only apply to register to vote through their local council or official websites. We welcome efforts by campaigners to encourage eligible electors to register to vote. However, our advice to anyone not yet registered is to only apply directly at www.gov.uk/registertovote.”

The People's Vote campaign has published a list of parties that pass it's 'People's Vote Test', bizarrely this includes the Labour Party. Don't be fooled by this. Labour has just published it's European manifesto and it's first priority is to deliver a Brexit ''along the lines of our alternative plan''. Failing that it's next priority is a general election. And failing both, ''the option of a public vote''. Note the use of the words ''the option of'', they're there for a reason, a convenient get out clause. Also there is no confirmation that Remain must be on the ballot of a public vote.
As a lifelong Labour voter in general elections who's also a Remainer, I'm afraid there's no choice but to vote for a party that unequivocally wants to Remain, and that isn't Labour. Therefore a clear message needs to be sent to Corbyn and his Lexiteer henchmen...

I registered too.

I heard rumours (Peston) that Femi was lined up as the Peterborough remain candidate but pulled out.

Presumably a brext/boris supporter.

I don't really understand what people expect him to do. EU have already said they're not willing to negotiate a different deal (I suppose they might accept some small tweaks). Anybody with a modicum of sense knows that "no deal" would be disastrous, and that we cannot risk reverting to a hard border in Ireland. Brexit seems like an almost impossible conundrum, but Johnson doesn't seem to have suggested concrete solutions, it's all just noise... empty words and patriotism. I have literally no idea what he's planning.. if anything.

He almost had me believing a deal is there ... but it's not is it.

My German work colleagues tell me he is being reported totally differently there(and not in a good way)

In our happy united country currently

Arron is suing Carole
Richard is suing Femi

Pete North had an update on this on his blog

[peterjnorth.blogspot.com]

but I still remember with affection when he got sued

"I will not part with a single penny - not just because I don't have it and never will, but also because I do not yield to this kind of cynical performance and whatever they take from me they are going to have to take by force. Good luck with that! Presently this consists of a collection of Normandy era plastic model tanks and a collection of 90's death metal CDs. "

Reminds me that The Great Hack premiers on Netflix tonight. I think Banks has tried to stop it. And Pete North blocked me on twitter and I know not why.

Jeremy Corbyn has said ‘mandate’ *again* a few times in the PMs Q’s

he said. “Given her successor has no mandate from the people, no mandate to move into office, doesn’t she agree that the best thing the honourable member for Uxbridge (Johnson) should do is call an election and allow the people to decide their future?”

And...

“We have had three years of bungled negotiations and we now have the spectacle of a Prime Minister coming into office with no electoral mandate, looking for a Brexit deal that has been ruled out by the EU or in the case of a no-deal, ruled out by the majority in this House and by anyone that understands the dangers to the British economy of a no-deal."



Expect a lot more if this in the coming weeks
Actually, it’d be good to see a video of all the times he’s uttered this ‘word’ he so loves.

Although he's a sensible type of Brexit supporter (North not Banks) - He can get a bit tetchy so you probably caught him in that mood smiling smiley

Didn't realise that Cummings and a lot of the ERG hate each other. During the leadership contest when there were whispers he was involved in Johnson's campaign, these were denied as a smear by the Raab camp in order to keep the ERGers onside and not transfer their support to Raab. More fun and games ahead then from the party that continues to eat itself...

I don't think we should be worrying how the people of Germany should be viewing us.

And yes, to the previous posters who seem to have got themselves in a bit of a jumble, I did vote Leave.
