  1. Brexit, supposedly, is going to happen as that is what we voted for. Any referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal should be along the lines of: do you support the terms of the Brexit deal agreed to by the UK and EU? In the event of a no vote, the options would be renegotiation, if the EU was amenable and time permitted, or Brexit with no deal. What cannot be an option would be an end to the Brexit process.

  2. I soooo look forward to the Milibands lecturing us on Europe. Both of them.

    The only thing that could improve on that is the Kinnocks joining them on a platform.

    Remember that David Miliband’s closest friends and colleagues preferred the present f**k-ups running the Labour Party to him.

  3. Having ivory-tower policitians telling the proles “this is in your best interests, vote for it” worked oh so well in the AV referendum and the Brexit referendum Part 1, didn’t it?

  4. Christina Patterson and Jonathan Haslam were on the SkyNews press panel last night. Not so much a review as a pro-remain rant and put down of Jacob Rees-Mogg. Patterson is a real piece of work. “I don’t want to be patronising but I will anyway”. Apparently large numbers of us thought we were voting to leave the UN.

  5. DocBud – “Apparently large numbers of us thought we were voting to leave the UN.”

    If only!

  6. The 17,000 people working for the IRC also needed to know, he said, that he was focused “on doing my job today for them”.

    Hubris much. Don’t suppose even one of those 17,000 has lost an iota of sleep fretting about how focused the Militwat is.

  7. So, a $750,000,000 orgasnisation with 17,000 staff – that’s $44,000 per head per year. I’m sort of surprised it’s so cheap. Still, there can’t be much left over for buying kit, and supplies.

  8. DocBud – “The 17,000 people working for the IRC also needed to know, he said, that he was focused “on doing my job today for them”.”

    I have no idea what the IRC is or what the object of their pity is – children, refugees, whatever – but I would think that the man in charge ought to be focused on doing his job for the Gay Whales and not for the employees. After all, the purpose of a charity is charity. Not an employment scheme for the thinker members of the Upper Middle Class.

    NDReader – “So, a $750,000,000 orgasnisation with 17,000 staff – that’s $44,000 per head per year. I’m sort of surprised it’s so cheap.”

    They must be keeping the Confidential Settlements with their prettier female interns off the books.

    Heh! Woken up from a twenty year coma, have we?

  10. With the arrival of Millislug the scene is set for the biggest mass arrest for T&S since Guy Fawkes and the lads were taken into custody.

    Would pay a £100 to be a fly on the wall when they are all dragged in. New Scotland would do as a rendezvous point but remand in the Tower via Traitor’s Gate.

  11. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t it true that even if we vote on the deal we will still not know if it is accepted by the enemy as they have to agree it with 27 other nations each of which has a different agenda of concerns and yes, let’s say it, pure bolshieness.

  12. Something the media seems to gloss over Rhoda, as if it’s a given that a united Europe will all vote in harmony

  13. Indeed. There are numerous conti nations that are fairly pro-Brit. See us as the one big-hitter on their side. If only we appreciated that fact.

    According to the english-language version of their local press the province of Valencia is lobbying for there to be no tariffs on its exports to the UK.
    It is not immediately obvious whether they think that M Barnier can dictate to us the list of goods that shall be tariff-free in the UK under WTO rules post-Brexit or whether they want him to make a deal that favours our imports from Valencia.
    I am quite happy for oranges to be tariff-free while we impose massive tariffs on milk-products and reinstate the hill-farm subsidy enabling the UK to be self-sufficient in milk butter and cheese (and “Wensleydale” should have the same Apellation protection as Champagne or Chateauneuf-du-Pape).

  15. Those called not for a referendum on the deal are seriously deliberately deluded if they think that the EU will accept an extension of negotiations while we try again to get a deal that suits them. The EU will rightly point out that means neverendums.

    Which leaves:

    1. No deal exit which they claim is the worst of all worlds or

    2. Remaining.

    If they think remaining is a viable option then they really don’t understand the British people or the EU.

  16. Anyone wanting to be self-sufficient in milk and butter can express their view when picking up produce at the market. If you want deny other people choice and to impose your view on others using the coercive power of the State, please go and live in Scotland where your views on foreign food will be welcome.

  17. Bongo – “please go and live in Scotland where your views on foreign food will be welcome.”

    I can’t wait for Scotland to try to impose a local food requirement. That would be kippers, potatoes and turnips for nine months a year then.

  18. Nobody is saying, Dave C, that Millipuke is a CSMFSOS Marxist treasonous puke–because it is self-evident that he is.

    Dave C.

  19. Mr Ecks – “Nobody is saying, Dave C, that Millipuke is a CSMFSOS Marxist treasonous puke–because it is self-evident that he is.”

    He is also proof that you can give a foreigner a passport but that does not make him British. The Milibands lack any real connection to Britain. He is just one generation and a lot of expensive education removed from the people trying to con money out of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
