Brexit What Happens Next Thread ---multiple merged threads.

The Irish border question seems to have gone a bit quieter of late, and not sure how the last bout ended, but i thought this was mildly relevant from one of my youtube subscriptions.

 

oh, it doesn't seem to have embedded at the time stamp. The border gets mentioned at 6:41 and then is actually crossed at 8:01. He also mentions having crossed the border (which I assume is the bridge) at  about 10:30 and 14:10. - I appreciate these are pedestrian/cycle ways.

He crosses a road border at 24:50. It seems like cars entering Switzerland have paused, while the ones entering Germany just slow down a bit.

 

Obviously it's a fairly quiet road, and no doubt there are major routes that commercial traffic is expected/required to use. But I assume 90% of the apparently thousands of irish border crossings are quiet roads. This by the way, is by Basel (Switzerland's 3rd city).

It's called being neutral, same as those Swiss you admire

Eitherway has nothing to do with EU and your imagined EU army, from our point of view over here there is a European army, it's called NATO and UK is still a member.

The Swiss have a magnificent Army and Airforce.

If NATO is the European Army why does the EU also want one?

That Lord Heseltine was on the box last night. He said it bringing it again, plus threats, was 'contemptible'.

But that's not all. Some other Spad typer on Sky said that if Mrs May could not get it through the house she should really go to the public. I nit you shot.

So, it may just come around a 4th time . . . 

Money talks.

If May pays DUP for 10 votes 1bn, How much does she needs to pay ERG for about 80 votes?

No they have not ended.

They are due to end by 2020 for existing companies.

And your claim about irish growth was misleading, it was tax schemes in the main.

Let's see if the Irish try another one.

Lidington insists cabinet united despite some voting against Brexit delay

David Lidington has insisted Theresa May’s cabinet will continue to work together “very constructively”, despite eight senior ministers, including the Brexit secretary, voting against an extension to article 50.

The European Union is poised to tell Theresa May that she must hold a second referendum or soften Brexit in return for them granting a lengthy delay to Britain’s departure date.

The Times understands that the prime minister has been told by senior EU officials and other European leaders that conditions for an extension to the Article 50 exit process would include the option of a second vote on EU membership.

Mrs May is expected to ask a summit of EU leaders next week for a delay to Brexit. Unless the House of Commons has ratified the withdrawal agreement by then momentum is growing across the EU for a lengthy postponement to give Britain a “long reflection period”.

How close was the no deal vote?

Maybe best to run that one again.

Everyone seems quite nonchalant about us paying £50 to £60 billion a year to bankers/bondholders to fund the interest on our national debt.

Yet Northern Ireland - the most deprived part of the UK - getting an extra £1 billion causes outrage. None of the money goes to DUP coffers - of the last £1bn - £400 million was spent on infrastructure, £150  million on rolling out superfast broadband, £200 million was allocated to the NHS in Ulster with the balance to address deprivation and to tackle mental health.

Of course some people would be happy to carry on paying £10 billion plus a year towards funding infrastructure and health care in Slovakia, Greece, Poland and Bulgaria - than in the UK! 

Perhaps its just a shame our GB politicians aren't as good as Arlene Foster at negotiating good deals!

Plus the Tories who abstained.

The vote was a lot closer than Mays deal.

 

The majority of Tory MPs  (190) voted against the article 50 extension - including of course the Brexit secretary who closed the debate and commended the Government's motion to the House!  Only 113 backed Mrs May and the extension. The Chief Whip - who is supposed to cajole MPs into backing the Government's plans - abstained.

So most Tory MPs are opposed to an article 50 extension - and May only got it through on Labour votes.

Yes it does. You’re talking ****.

It works for Norway, and Switzerland.

Iceland seem happy having cancelled their application to join the EUSSR.

Norway and Switzerland both have variations of rule taking deals with the EU.

"UK Spoof News and Satire" it says on the top left of the webpage you linked. Not sure what are you trying to say with this?

As far as that subject. Here's a video discussing it (with a Remainer implying racism as usual)...

I can imagine that going down like a lead balloon. It is clear any extension would be used to strengthen the EU's position, rather than help to make the split more amicable.

It's time to just leave with what dignity we have left, then start rebuilding again on a fresh footing... preferable starting with a general election to wash this rotten lot out.

I see. A political angle as Spoof News and Satire, so basically by its own nature they can exaggerate the facts. This Remainer uses the medium of going naked, narrated by a Romanian (who I tend to agree with)...

I look forward to "Remainer - The Musical".

It turns out that story is rubbish.  This is the EU's draft decision on an extension:
