@loggerheads would be a good, new, name for @Bravo_Bravo, for obvious reasonsWhatever I have no intention of falling down a patented BB rabbit hole the day is getting shorter than Bercow and we remain @ loggerheads.
But it was non binding.This one has been done to death. It was clearly stated that the results would be respected. Not only that but we had a GE where the Labour and Tory parties both stood on manifestos that stated they would honour the results. We also had a parliamentary vote on it which was passed.
Penis.Poor BB, here let me help.
Dickensianesque means in the style of Charles Dickens.
Extended metaphor means a metaphor that contains similar or allied themes throughout a long piece of writing, see page one of Hard Times for one of his finest.
Writing is universally agreed upon marks on, for example, a page, stone, wall, tree trunk, that conveys meaning to people who read.
Bravo Bravo means someone who gets a call up notification and does a blue funk runner: a bullsh1tter in green: a Walt with a MOD 90: a cowardly tw*t.
The game changer was BoJo coming back from the EU with a deal. That cut the ground under the Remain camp's feet - hitherto they'd been claiming they only wanted to block a do-deal Brexit. Now they have little option but to block BoJo's Brexit deal in a last desperate attempt to keep us in the EU.MPs have successfully managed to block any and every attempt at a deal, therefore we're at the default A50 state of leaving in 10 days time without one. Is that correct or have I missed something?
Largely agree, but as I noted to Scaley on t'other thread, it will still depend to an extent on whether Brussels is prepared to stop up the remaining rabbit hole...The game changer was BoJo coming back from the EU with a deal.

But the attempts to block Brexit are becoming increasingly blatant - and will not play well with BoJo's electorate; Tory party + TBP voters, together with lukewarm Remain supporters getting fed up with parliaments attempts to block Brexit. The Tory vote has recovered from the nadir of the European elections and is now consistently in the mid to high thirties; enough to win a GE providing Farage isn't stupid enough to put up a full slate of candidates in the GE and split the Tory vote.
BoJo looks happy to run the clock down. He'll either get his deal through at the last minute to prevent a no deal Brexit, leave with a no deal Brexit courtesy of the European Withdrawal Act, or force the opposition to amend the European Withdrawal Act - which is tantamount to Labour committing political suicide.
The status quo suits BoJo - because Brexit happens by default on the 31st, he'll be happy to see the opposition being forced into ever more blatant attempts to stop Brexit. That'll lead to a GE and a 'people v parliament' GE. Which BoJo is favourite to win.
