Prepare for WTO

Given the recent events surrounding Brexit; whatever has happened in the past, regarding plans or anything else, is now irrelevant. I am writing because the sheer lunacy and ill-informed commentaries from your parliamentary colleagues and political journalists is just staggering. Whilst a number are well-meaning, it is high time they were honest with the British public in that WTO Brexit is now the only route left. How many actually know the law they have debated and voted upon? Do we actually elect politicians without a brain? People with no mind and easily manipulatable... party lemmings who just does as they are told. Sad.
Parliamentary time: -

Until Brexit day (at the time of writing) there is only 24 sitting days of parliament left, how can a deal not just be agreed but legislatedfor before the 29th March.
Statute
As you are aware only statute can override statute
In order to extend article 50 (for whatever reason) primary legislation has to be passed to change the EU withdrawal Act, overriding or delaying the repeal of the 1972 ECA
Is there time? I doubt it!
Even IF the Withdrawal Agreement did pass the initial vote, there isn't enough time to get it legislated for because the ratification process defined in the Withdrawal Act requires an Act of Parliament.
European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018
Customs Union

There has been a lot of talk in recent days about Jeremy Corbyn and the Customs Union. Under Section 18 of the EU Withdrawal Act, I think that plans for customs arrangements have to be tabled by a minister by 31st October 2018, therefore the deadline has passed for any new plans to be tabled?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018
Also, Section 31 of the Taxation [Cross-Border Trade] Act 2018. Would a Customs Union require a separate act of parliament.
Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018
And the backstop unlawful?
Taxation (Cross-border Trade) Act 2018
In light of the legislation a Customs Union now unlawful, and any deal cannot be ratified due to parliamentary time constraints. The main point, has the clock finished ticking and it is time parliamentarians were honest with themselves and the British public!!!

Another BREXIT thread, well done you.
 
Another BREXIT thread, well done you.
Why did you look? Why did you feel the need to make a pointless comment in a Brexit related thread in the Brexit forum?
 
What is this BREXIT?? Some new social trend?? Damn it hurts to be on Hoth and isolated from the galaxy.
It’s a democratic thing, you Americans wouldn’t understand.
 
Yipeeee another Brexit thread, we cant have enough... thank you @falcons1988. Chopper

Back in the 1860's, the Americans had a dispute between the individual states of the Union.

They resolved it by having a Civil War. This got a result, but killed over half a million citizens in the process.

Is that the way to go?

Really? Are you a history teacher?

The Brexit forum bit of this website surprisingly only has 48 separate threads on Brexit, despite the number of members that have posted "oh thank ****, another Brexit thread" in the last 2 years. At least this one was posted in the right bit.

Tbh when the 'Brexit Phase Two' thread runs to over 92,000 entries it becomes quite difficult to keep up with what's been said... at least this thread is semi-specific

There was similar even earlier when the situation more closely resembled your being subject to an unelected governmental body taxing you without representation as per the aborted Withdrawal Agreement.
 
Because I can.
I didn't realise that it was illegal.
Who mentioned anything about anything being 'illegal'? Apart from you of course.

I merely asked why you took issue with an appropriately located thread that you apparently have no interest in.
 
...at least this thread is semi-specific
btw.... I should have finished my post ...

. at least this thread is semi-specific even if the content from the OP is rambling nonsense.... (I don't know if anyone read it... all I saw was 'blah blah blah')
