How can you expect that there will be a "Hard Brexit"? That won't happen. No way.

What will happen is this: there will be a second referendum . Which will result in a majority vote to "REMAIN".

All this has been obvious from the start. No-one is allowed to leave the EU. Get real.
You're funny. Did you go to the Baggie school of Dunces? :p
 
I agree.

Dont like the woman but believe she will win a majority.

Hopefully putting Labours little socialist experiment to bed forever.
It does seem preps are in hand. I expect it is an option should her WA (with added Brussels lip-stick) fail once more to get through Parliament this month. It could be along the lines of 'I have tried hard to get an acceptable deal. A No Deal option would be extremely damaging and so I am putting the future of the country back into the hands of the people in a GE).

She's not keen on another referendum, though that's another way of deflecting the blame. Another option is her skills in kicking the can down the road by extending Article 50 (and, obviously, the nuclear one of revoking Art 50).

Second referendum or revoking article 50 are both political suicide for the Tories. Never happen. Although l personally wouldnt mind another referendum as l think leave would win again.
She has to force Corbyn to support a second referendum then fight an election on a "Labour are trying to steal your Brexit" ticket.

Not if they were "forced" into it.

That's why another snap GE is a possibility.
 
A snap general election would need the Labour Party to agree to it to get round the fixed parliament act, and I'm not sure they really want that despite their posturing

They havent shut up about it since the last election. How could they not agree to it?
 
There isn't time for a GE afore EU leave date, even if the Parliament Act could be overturned and what if there was? Would it mean that the previous democratic referendum would be nil and void? Get out and rebuild the country and let the EU go feck themselves! :cool:

I concur.

However, those cowards in the HoP will never allow us a no deal brexit.

It would need an extension to Art 50 which the EU has indicated would be agreed to if there was a good reason for doing so.
 
A bit of a difficult sell given it’s hard to believe anything she says. Not a particularly trustworthy individual.
Still the Prime Minister. I'll be most impressed if she can get this abortion of a deal through Parliament.

I'd be more impressed if she acknowledged it's a dead duck and started LEADING us out with no deal.

It's not quite a dead duck yet. I also see No Deal as a non-starter, though that does depend on MPs doing the right thing on behalf of their constituents and in the national interest. Just 10 days until the next showdown.
 
He's changed his hair style since then and it's just an aspiration, it has no bearing on whether he would agree to a general election or not
He's changed his hairstyle since yesterday? Are you sure?
