Turds do take time to polish

I have sat on the Supreme Court Brexit decision for a day or so. Some things need time to ferment before it’s best to comment.

The result being:

And that is precisely why all opposition parties are required to now demand a plan from a government that got us into this mess. And to say there will be no progress, no Article 50 notice and no negotiations until we know what the plan is. This is not defying the will of the people. It’s upholding it.

We have always been at war with Eastasia, no?

  1. How about the EU setting out their plan? Taking note, of course, of Article 8, which says they have to be nice to their neighbours.

  2. No progress? No article 50? Pretty sure the government can push through with that regardless of what individuals want. Between Conservatives and Labour alone who say they will not oppose it then there will be enough to get stuff through.
    Whether what they get through has idiotic amendments is another matter.

    Amazing what he now knows about opposition parties being required to do. Its almost like he has an insight into their internal workings and significant influence. Almost.

  3. You can imagine the sigh of relief from the inspectors of Murphy’s stools who, having been deprived for a couple of days, now get the chance to pore over the Great Man’s leavings on this issue in microscopic detail.

  4. And he forgets that the leader of the biggest opposition party (JC) is a Brexiteer to his bootstraps – voted against in the 70s, voted against Maastricht and Lisbon. He wants out.

    His protests against May’s handling of this has been pretty limp, to suggest he is happy with the direction of travel.

  5. Adrian – “His protests against May’s handling of this has been pretty limp”

    How would that differ from his normal behaviour? When is he not limp?

    I wouldn’t know; ask the Shadow Health Secretary.

  7. The government that got us into this mess, eh? Not sure holding John Major et al to account at this stage will really help us.

  8. “I have sat on the Supreme Court Brexit decision for a day or so”.

    Non. The justices of the Supreme Court sat in judgment. You’ve been trying to work out what it means.

  9. “How would that differ from his normal behaviour? When is he not limp?”

    When he’s communing with some fascist hard nut terrorist type, being around people of violence gets the Hard Left off. It taps into their deep seated desires to control other people. In democracies they have to make do with the political process but what they really want is the power a gun brings.

  10. Corbyn has now issued a 3 line whip in favour of the Article 50 Bill. Though attempts at amendments may be made, I can’t see any prospect of “all opposition parties” achieving anything.

  11. How are Horrocks and the other hard-line faithful handling this display of statesman like judgement?

  12. “And to say there will be no progress, no Article 50 notice and no negotiations until we know what the plan is. This is not defying the will of the people. It’s upholding it.”

    That is a damned untruth. He knows it and everyone else shoutime ot knows ot as well. Britain votes voted for Brexit, pure and simple. Britain voted for Brexit despite hearing the dire warnings of experts, npw queuing up to admit their “Michael Fish” moment. Britain votes for Brexit despite being told it meant MOT being a part of the single market. Anyone now claiming this wasn’t clear is lying. The irony being he’s are he people accusing ÙS of lying.

    Oh, and Murphy is a liar, a libeller and a liar.

  13. I wasn’t told that voting to cease membership of the EU ( for that was the question on the ballot ) would mean leaving the Single Market.
    I was told by filth like Cameron, Osborne and many others that it was THEIR OPINION that a leave vote would mean leaving the SM, but they never went back to Parliament to get the question on the ballot changed. I was also told by Michael O’Leary that a leave vote meant leaving the Common Aviation Area, and that was his opinion too. Many others weighed in with similar opinions, often expressed as fact.
    Leaving the SM is of course still up for negotiation. So long as in 2019 we are not EU members I will be pleased, otherwise the Mall will get a visit from a mob with pitchforks.

  14. Delightful:—-

    So, botzarelli, are you saying that our host, a Professor of Political Economy doesn’t know what he’s talking about?

    It’s happened before
    It will happen again

    Wouldn’t it be better to ask the Shadow Home Secretary?

  16. When the leaders of the Remain and the Leave campaigns were stating the same opinion: that leaving the EU means leaving the single market, then how the hell can this be something we didn’t know was going to happen?

  17. Corbyn has now issued a 3 line whip in favour of the Article 50 Bill.

    Excellent. And uncustomarily smart of Jezza.

    Events have been kind to us recently: if Jez wasn’t in place as Labour leader, it’s possible we might have lost the referendum and likely we’d be at far greater risk of losing the post-referendum politicking.

    If Trump hadn’t been elected, we’d be facing a United States government hostile to Brexit and doing everything within its power to keep us shackled to the beast.

    Mrs May wasn’t my preferred choice as PM, but she’s been gifted an incredible opportunity to become our greatest postwar leader since Thatcher. If she plays this right, she’ll be prime minister well into the 2020’s.

  18. Both sides thought stating that opinion would help them win. It was still opinion being deceitfully presented as fact.
    Still, you never know how things will go from here – you might see your view tested in court: that leaving the EU but staying in the SM for now is a forbidden option because of what was spouted by a few big cheeses on tv in 2016 ( but which wasn’t on the ballot paper or in the Referendum Act ). What fun the judges.

    Whoops, I must have missed a reshuffle.

    But good Lord, is she really? Labour are in an even worse mess than I thought.
