So have the people.

The truth is coming out now. The British people have been betrayed by their government. We will never be free of the EU. NO DELAY! NO DEAL NOW!
Karen Evans
Someone wrote on a wall near us 'Brexit is a crime scene'. Do not want to be governed by unelected criminals - MP's are bad enough.

The BSC Consulting proposals are now been looked at again.

Give the proposals to each party in the uk and eu.

Tell them they have a red pen and cross off upto 150 words they dont agree with and return it within 24 hours. The highest frequency of words crossed out will be left out of the final proposals.The documents residual text will be put to parliment for a vote on each side of the channel. Then thats the end of that set of proposals if nothing is agreed.

The irish boarder the eu will have to grant southern ireland as a free trade zone and comply with GFA . All regularty managaement concerning trade decided by the two irish assembles.This is already set out in the GFA international peace treaty which s binding on the EU.

Failure for either part to agree.The UK leaves on march 31st and enters into a two year article 24 WTO in which time a canada plus and several other swiss deals already offered by the EU will be signed up to.

Forward The queeen has been asked to invoke her constitutional responsibilities and write changes to the consitution to modernise our parlimentry system.These will be....

All

The Lords will become a technical chamber elected by trade professional services and the church of england bodies existing on 1st jan 2000 with over 30 k membership for one 7 year term.

Membership of each chamber is mutuall exclusive.

The mps in the commons will be elected by proporional representation for two election terms only.

Election allacation will provide for four party state with no more that 44% of votes allowed for the leading party.


This reform is needed urgently...

It's all bollocks.... Corbyn the silly cunt just wants to get in power. As long as I get a good exchange rate for my holiday I couldn't give a fuck.

IF MPs DELAY BREXIT BEYOND END OF MARCH - THEY GIVE AWAY OUR ONLY NEGOTIATING TOOL - FURTHER NEGOTIATIONS WILL BE A FRUITLESS WASTE OF TIME - THAT WILL MEAN THEY WANT TO BETRAY DEMOCRACY BY OVERTURNING THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE - NEGOTIATING WITH THE EU WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A F*****G WASTE OF TIME - WE SHOULD BE TELLING THEM WE ARE LEAVING NOT BEGGING THEM AND WE SHOULD LEAVE END OF MARCH.

I've been proven correct, again, when I stated leavers are moaning even louder than the remainers (remoaners).
Malcolm Carrick
These are supposed to be intelligent people who have no idea what they want!!!!

It is a fact that all banksters and crporate parasites support the fourth reich, which is in itself reason enough to leave

This (Marxist, probably) ideologue neglects to mention there is more than one way to avoid No-Deal Brexit.
(they're all Bullsh***ers !) especially this one.


Cancel Brexit (it can be done, lawfully and unilaterally)

You're not allowed to leave the EUSSR
'Relax' said the Juncker man,
'We are programmed to receive.
You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave!'
Paul Gibbons
Clearly the treasonous cxxts will do anything except leave the European Union. What will happen now is more delay, frustration and time wasting.

Britain is bound to turn into Venezuela in 10 years. Remember this comment. Only rich people will be able to survive what is coming. Everyone else that is not rich but voted to leave basically shot themselves in the foot. You can’t just attack global traders and disrupt their business without any consequences. The next generation will pay for our intolerance to immigrants. Nobody will win this race war.

Theresa May is a remainer colluding with the EU to stop Brexit. Brexit is good for Britain but terrible for the EU. We don’t sell anything to the EU. They need us far more than we need them. The only reason this has got to this stage is because the political class is working with the EU to stop Brexit from happening and simply kicking the can down the road and making it look like somethings happening. Making it look like we’ve tried to negotiate. Brexit is never going to happen.
