For discussion of EU, Brexit and such. Posts that provoke my wrath will get spiked.

*edit* think I lost a few posts trying to move them in here. Apologies.

So on the latest developments, dear god. Completely undemocratic. Remind everyone: The Leave campaign promised a deal. This is not what anyone voted for and anyone using it as such is a charlatan.

Another referendum is undemocratic but this isn't?

This is genuinely quite upsetting news.

The British spirit will get us through though, I guess...

I can’t see anything other than an election after Boris has framed it as him vs parliament and the EU. Short term gain for him at the cost of long term damage to our democracy

Tweet from BBC's Nick Robinsin. "Hearing that the Queen could be asked to agree to prorogue parliament as early as today. She’s in Balmoral. Would be done by Order in Council. Only one source. Not confirmed. Watch this space"


Seems like Boris wants to do it before any court action stops him. wink.gif

Too late then. Coz court action is already underway in Scotland.


And yes the Scottish court could stop it. It’s a UK court so it has jurisdiction over UK law

This is what happens people when you vote for far right parties! We warned y'all back in 17 that the Tories were looking increasingly autocratic.

Hopefully this will finish off the Tories for good when it all hits the fan. I can see temain winning by over 60% when all's said and done. We'll have to adopt the euro and Scotland will leave, but the pound is already nearly on parity anyway. It won't be so different.

Boris is the expert of political games

It’s actually disgusting to see it unfold and all go his way

Well, the Fuhrer has now sought permission to prorogue parliament. Whatever you think on matters EU, this is an outrageous move and sets a dangerous precedent. It is an extreme example of a PM failing to apply the "that lot over there test". Before granting themselves new powers or using existing powers in a new way, a government should always ask themselves whether they are prepared to see the opposition (that lot over there) use the same powers. If they cannot answer with an unequivocal "Yes", they shouldn't go ahead themselves.

No, he can do what he eants as he is like Trump - a bumbling idiot. Mad May couldn't get away with following Cummings' disgusting plans, but Bojo can.

I’m fairly sure this happened in part (they may have been planning it anyway) because of the announcement yesterday that leaders among the opposition had agreed to go the legislation route to block no deal, and this completely nixes that.

Which is of course trampling on Parliamentary sovereignty and I expect to see massive outrage from the Brexiters because of it... oh wait.
