MP's won't budge, Brussels won't budge, May won't budge and the whole thing is looking like a collosal fuckup, honestly.

Now I'm not sure what the future holds but it seems ever more likely that a no-deal Brexit is on the horizon, and that's bad news as far as I can see.

What's the solutions now? It's hurting my head keeping up with it.

I guess now all the old smug wankfarts who possess the mentality that they're better than everyone based on no merits will come down to earth for a little while. The colonial era is long over and it's time they get that memo.

And to think the original Brexit vote was a coin toss. I have news for every MP. 49%-51% is not a majority vote. That literally is Theresa May flipping a coin. Tails is stay, and heads is leave. Oh look! Heads! Goodbye, EU!


That is not how voting works. If you want a decision, it needs to be by at least 2/3 majority vote.

I agree with Captain Ramius here.


With the Brexit it is weird that they don't try something different after it increasingly looks like the whole thing was not such a great idea. At least in the way it was implemented; there is always a chance that leaving the EU will actually be better for England in the long run if the EU keeps going down its self-destructive path.

But the next coupld of years will be tough for the UK as it currently stands.

If anything, Brexit will turn the Disunited Queendom into America, the land of no opportunity, and the land where only the top 1% are allowed to succeed. Anyone who is not in the 1% is left for dead, and then THEY are blamed for being left for dead.


As members of the European union, any EU citizen is allowed to live and work in any any EU nation. As long as the nation is a member of the EU, you can go nearly anywhere for nearly job. In addition, businesses get minimal import and export fees, if any at all, which reduces prices all across the EU. This means more availability to everything everywhere. This also means more money going to the individual businesses, more money going to the workers, and less money going to the governments. These both drive economies, and businesses in general. No matter where you live or work, you financially better off to stay in the EU.


If you want to leave the EU, you would be financially better off to shoot your pensioner Grandmother in the face. Have fun not having any opportunities, and no way to get somewhere where opportunities do exist.

Surely that must include language training?  If not, I think you'll have a tough time growing up in Spain and then finding work in Germany.

The best way to learn a language is to speak it, and Europe is one land mass, no real borders to speak of - you can just drive from one country to another. 

Part of me wonders how the UK would have done as part of the EU if it had been connected by land.

Potentially, yeah. The UK doesn't have a lot of social mobility and one wonders quite what the cause of that is. I mean it's easy to say that we're very class based, and that seems to be true, but why? - and why so much more so that other countries? Is it just that our education system is that bad?

Plans for a bridge across the Channel have existed since the late 1800s. Boris Johnson also fired a few shots at how a bridge needs to exist. Some years back, civil engineers gave Margaret Thatcher plans for a 21-mile bridge across the Dover Narrows. Yes, we do certainly have the technology to do it. We have bridges today which traverse a lot longer than 21 miles.


The problem with a bridge that long is the sheer amount of money required. Off the top of my head, I think the top 5 longest bridges in the world are all in China. As for how UK could come up with £3 BILLION is no easy thing to swallow. Even if France paid in half, £1.5 billion is still a nightmare to organise. Good luck getting Tories to organise it. Granted, a toll system would repay the entire amount in 5-6 years, but do you really want your money tied up for that long?
