The irony of a Gov that has done nothing threatening to do nothing if it can't get it's own way...

We are currently in danger of exiting the EU next week. There is no reason for the EU to offer an extension.

The reason is that they don't want no deal. Remember that was BJ's bargaining tool and the Brexiteers cry that the the other members wanted a deal more than the UK did. Shame that Macron pushed for the tighter extension last time rather than a year. Will he push even harder this time?

If we'd had the whole year to sort of this bag of manure would it have made a difference?

True, but they're not going to be seen to being complicit in No Deal happening, they should just stick to the UK's request of 31st Jan even though everybody knows it's realistically not long enough, plus it keeps them out of the blame game...

Ww marched last week when I expect most of us thought that the game was up. It then felt like a false dawn when I watched the political programmes on Sunday rather than taking it easy with music on the radio. Particularly after hearing from Letwin on Sunday - his intervention being purely to move to a deal.

And here we are a week later no further on. What are the facts? One remains. Johnson is not to be trusted. Or should I say Johnson and his team are not to be trusted.

Jezza is pretty rubbish but has some integrity. Cameron had some integrity. May had some integrity. BJ is a smart cookie and I don't think that RM and DC are pulling his strings - RM I expect is means to an end.

I can't find a clip of Grieve last night on Newsnight saying about BJ being dishonest so this one will have to do www.theguardian.com/politics/video/2019/oct/02/dominic-grieve-accuses-dominic-cummings-of-lying-to-undermine-mps-video

Cummings has a major operation in early November apparently which is why his contract only ran to 31 October.

Am I right about any of this?

Now that we another extension to the end of January if we need it, we can come out before that date with a deal, have a general election before that date, revoke A50 (if LibDems win) and not come out at all, have a hung parliament if there's no majority, go 100% no deal if BJ and the Stormtroopers win hands down, fall into a Farage situation (is this at all possible?), have yet another extension if the current deal fails to be approved.

Is a GE going to solve anything regardless as to when it happens? The B-word isn't going away whether it's the current parliament or a new one, which will of course have most of the same MPs in it.

And lastly can a fresh referendum be forced. If so would it or should it be binary as was the last, or should it be 1 No deal, 2. Deal, 3. Remain. Suely Remain would win since the Leave vote is in itself split.

All that's possible in theory. Not sure why there's been this big thing about this latest 'flextension', as it's inherent in A50 that if we agree a deal before the extension end date we could leave early.
A referendum can't be forced though, just as Johnson has found out he couldn't force Brexit if there isn't a majority for it in Parliament. Legislation needs to passed before it can happen. As for what such a ref should ask, would've thought one of the deals the EU has agreed to v Remain...

ETA: If in an election the Brexit Party advocating No Deal won more votes then the Tories advocating Johnson's deal, then there's a good argument to say that No Deal should be on the ref ballot paper instead

Don't worry - those last ditch attempts to rig the election appear to be failing.

ditch lol smiling smiley - got to say Labour seem to be hitting the ground running this morning - seems like they were ready to go. Monday should be the new Speaker election - wouldn't be surprised if Harriet Harman has been canvassing quietly (saw an interview with her on Sky where she seemed very confident). Means my vote wouldn't matter if Peckham is uncontested.

He is - but I saw a Sky News interview with Harman and she gave me the impression it was done and dusted (maybe that's the impression she wanted to give).

Harriet Hartman really wants the Speaker role. She, however, was absent for the GE vote yesterday.

Where are all the riots?

messageRe: Brexit View
Posted by SpringTime 31 October, 2019 15:44

There haven't been any yet - maybe it was just a threat. Or maybe they've been Flextended till the end of January, like Brexit. Actually I do think threat was indeed an element to projected riots, but at the same time I can see disorder (probably limited to SW1) if we aren't out or rather "half out" after this extension. And if the LibDems win the bid and revoke A50 there will definitely be riots...

Brexit isnít happening. Been delayed several times. Farage says Johnson deal isnít Brexit. Whole thing collapses under its own weight as it was always going to

We've probably run out of things to say.

May's attempt to satisfy both camps, with a mixed cabinet and some alignment, to be stabbed in the back by ERG and BoJo.

BoJo dropping DUP without a second thought

Tories move to the right and exodus of the moderates

BoJo managing to make the country even more divided

A worse deal and a worse PM than under May yet much of the country swallows it

On the good side it's focused my view on what't to blame - an internecine conflict on the fields of Eton

Nothing new there but thanks for letting me get this off my chest Cat

Iím mostly glad we didnít actually win the Rugby World Cup

Not for the sporting prowess, itís been a brilliant tournament. But only for the fact that Bojo and Farage might have taken it and denigrated it as some kind of ĎEngeeeerlandí look how mighty we can be guff.

But of course it was Corbynís fault too, why not.

I was hoping to join the riots, but imagine my disappointment at the lack of Anarchy and chaos.

Still, I did make some nice toast, then went for a haircut.
