As Polly says

The solution to Brexit is not to do Brexit.

Sigh.

That’s not quite what was voted for, is it?

  1. Polly says: “What do you mean you’re arresting me for Treason and Sedition? Who are you people? What…oooffff””

    The “oooffff” is a result of a large and nasty copper getting sick of listening to Pol’s crap.

    I suppose quite a lot of “bbbrrrrzzzztttt” -type noises should then follow to represent a mass tasering.

  2. I particularly liked this piece:

    ‘Instead we shall seek to stay in the EEA, alongside Switzerland and Norway, who are thriving.’

    So I presume we can see her advocating Canton level democracy with greater us of plebiscites? Significant private sector involvement in welfare provision. Compulsory health insurance to replace the NHS? Serious restrictions on immigration with people breaching the regulations deported despite ‘bleeding heart’ campaigns on Social media? Retention of the Monarchy?

    This is a ‘volte face’ of epic proportions – Great work, Polly!

  3. I fear that whatever deal the worthless authoritarian hag May negotiates will be worse than either staying in or leaving without a deal.

    She has to go. Now.

    I tend to agree with that characterisation but what is the alternative? – a Leadership election might presage a General Election which Corbyn wins. If that happens that’s it – the UK as we know it is done. Though they have elections in North Korea governmental changes are few and far between (net 0 changes in 70 plus years) and Legions of taxpayer funded Momentum brainwashers will be augmented by Money printing, with a brief to create an endless supply of Corbynites from the ‘education’ system.. I would not change Leader now. It could be the end of everything. Best fudge the issue for now and rely on the DUP where necessary, before implementing Franchise reform and other measures specifically designed to target Socialism along the lines Mr Ecks has suggested.

  5. “‘Instead we shall seek to stay in the EEA, alongside Switzerland and Norway, who are thriving.’”

    Erm, Switzerland is not in the EEA. It has bilaterals with EEA-like effect, but member it is not. Is there any beginning to her knowledge?

    “That’s not quite what was voted for, is it?”

    But it’s what Our Poll and her mates voted for, and that’s all that counts in Graunland.

  6. Damn it, we all knew before the referendum that it was a one-time, all-or-nothing deal. Both sides said we’d be out of the common market and the customs union. That’s what we voted on and we said, “Fine. Let’s be out, then.”

    Seriously, the more of this Remoaner crap I hear the more I want to say to Ecks, “Have at it, lad. Do us proud.”

  7. Instead we shall seek to stay in the EEA, alongside Switzerland and Norway, who are thriving.

    Norway is hardly thriving. It’s budget has been wrecked by the oil price crash, and the only thing propping up their giant welfare state is a small, homogenous population willing to pull together and their having sensibly managed the oil wealth they reaped during the boom. This is about as applicable to Britain as Toyota’s manufacturing was to British Leyland’s.

    The same thing can probably be said of the Swiss, too. They’re booming because they are Swiss, not because they have an arrangement with the EU.

  8. The same thing can probably be said of the Swiss, too. They’re booming because they are Swiss, not because they have an arrangement with the EU

    Quite. They boomed before they had an arrangement with the EU.

  9. Seriously, the more of this Remoaner crap I hear the more I want to say to Ecks, “Have at it, lad. Do us proud.”

    Or “just get on with it”. If only…

  10. There’s nothing wrong with copying the actions of the intelligent countries like SWI. Copying is how children learn from adults.

    Plenty of those who campaigned for Brexit used ‘Switzerland’ as their best one word answer to win an argument. Examples include Johnson, Hannan, Leadsom, Davis ( as a temporary measure ) and even Nigel frigging Farage, alongside the usual liberal suspects like the ASI, Niemietz at the IEA, Roland Smith, and the makers of Brexit- The Movie.
    So if we end up keeping freedom of movement, the proper hard brexiteers who never once used the Swiss putdown can hardly claim they were in a majority.
