Anyway, far more interestingly, I've seen on Facebook that a former prominent BBSer (and ex-mod) has been asked about standing as an MEP...

When you say prominent, are you talking about ego?

Not at all. Of the many wonderful friends I have made through the BBS I would say this person was one of the least egotistical.

Erm no. While the "negotiaton" has clearly been at best very flawed, this hasn't been the primary problem. The main issue here has been that the leave campaign one on the basis of a number of claims that were (deliberately or not) simply untrue. First and foremost the last three years has conclusively demonstrated that those claims were not true

Unfortunately, rather than acknowledge that reality when faced with it, many leave supporters have instead looked for other reasons why the impossible promises they were sold cannot come true. The "remainer conspiracy" narrative unfortunately seems to have taken hold, despite being complete nonsense.

Careful. You'll push him towards voting for Tommy if you don't cave into his incredibly unrealistic expectations.

Why not? Explain how it should have been done including the major stumbling block in NI. (Preferably without inventing tech that hasn’t been and will never be invented*)

I would argue that the percentage of the 52% were already at extremism before the result of the referendum was announced in 2016. If you give them an inch they will take the proverbial mile. Pander to these extremists and they will only get worse as they think they have won a mandate. Whatever type of Brexit we do end up with, I hope it is not the one they wanted.

I'm sure that in-exile is thinking of the 12th century Anarchy or similar.

Can you become an MEP if you're a convicted fraudster?

If so we should probably help reform that after we remain in/return to the EU.

Regardless of the person involved I think that any criminal with a spent comviction should be able to stand for election to any parliament.
