I would be in favour of a close as possibly relationship with Cambridge and Oxford, who I would imagine would chose to leave the UK as well shortly after London leaves. We would be able to do comprehensive trade deals with them on day one. Negotiations would only take an afternoon. Given we send more students to both Universities than any other major conurbation they need us more than we need them. I would also consider setting up walls along the M11 and M40 and around both cities and including both in the Free State of London.

The problem for those proposing it is to get it on the agenda as a private members bill can be resisted by the government as they control the timetable. They will have to find a way to corner the government into doing it.

Given a second leave victory parliament will have to get on with it.
Theoretically last weekend was the tipping point for remain to win due to deaths of older voters, younger voters becoming franchised. Theoretically of course.

I also think that the voting rules will be changed to allow all those affected by it to vote, yes, you and others who want to leave will complain about it but the I suspect it will happen.

Yep. Good news.

BAE have been trying to get out of the armoured vehicle business for ages. This means some skills and capacity will be kept in the UK as opposed to being lost completely or moved (as BAE is doing in other areas) to the States.

Another poll from Sky news shows that 26% of people think no deal means we stay in the EU.

What a load of clap trap. The only sure fire way Corbyn has for ruining his chances is by ignoring members and by being the midwife to a Tory Brexit.

Mate, if we remain, & Tory policies remain, then your tears will still flow. If we leave, then you'll have twice as many reasons to grieve.

Fact is, those that voted Leave were mostly retired, have done very well thank you & have some immunity against a downturn as they own their own assets whose value has artificially inflated. So let's be honest about what you're supporting.
I always wonder which bit of the government's plan for Brexit, or the ERG version, is meant to help the poorest in the UK.

The ERG go on about lower prices, but that's a complete fallacy and ignores all the myriad downsides and difficulties of a policy of unilateral zero tariffs.

There is no way we have enough parliamentary time to leave on 29 March whatever we do.

edit: reports suggesting parliament considering sitting at weekends and through its recess to get it all done in time. I'd say this is the least they should be doing.

Tell you what. The EU are far more likely to extend A50 to allow a PV, as opposed to time limiting the backstop.

Yesterday Theresa May rejected any proposed suspension of Article 50, and insisted that we will leave the EU on March 29th. She also rejected the idea of a second referendum on the basis that it would sew discord, undermine democracy and destroy “social cohesion” in the country. Meanwhile the Tories have been systematically demolishing social cohesion in this country since coming to power in 2010 with their austerity-driven policies and the creation of ever-greater inequalities. In other words, the Tories have already created the perfect environment for social discontent.

Then UKIP and others saw the opportunity to exploit this environment to support their xenophobic agenda, blaming the dire state of the country on foreigners. Boris and others then cooked up a series of lies about how much better off the country would be out of Europe, spread malicious untruths through social media using illegally-culled data, and rubbished every expert view on the adverse consequences of leaving as “Project Fear”. The referendum of 2016 was carried out in this political climate. And we are being asked to uphold this major achievement of democracy as opposed to asking the country what it now believes, in the light of the information that has since emerged, whether it still wants to leave the EU.

It doesn't seem that there's any problem with Brexit so far and its only 66 days away. Record employment.

Yes, theoretically indeed, because what this theory tends to ignore is that as the old brexitters have shuffled off, those Remainers not quite so old and still alive have aged over the last two and a half years.

I was sane enough to vote Remain, but once we pass 60 we go all right wing and Brexitty.

One minute you're feeling quite normal, and then all of a sudden...oh, get over it, you lost, not the brexit I voted for, you're next, we brits didn't never not need no help from anyone, good old Boris, vassal state, Mike Gove for PM, blah, blah, blah, bloody Corbin, blah, remoaners, blah, we walk, blah, they need us blah, dribble.

I can't see the Representation of the People Act being changed for the sole purpose of including all possible remainers.

There is no justifiable reason for including long term emigrants, foreigners or children.

This is good news, however real wages still below what they were in 2008 for the median worker.

Let's see how employment fares once Brexit actually happens not beforehand. Currently companies can still trade freely with the EU and the 60 countries with which we have FTAs outside the EU. JIT supply chains still work. Companies are having to prep for no deal (any temps for this will be just that).

Does this apply to (advisory) referendums? I thought perhaps not?
