Cameron rushed into it. We should have had a strategy before triggering A50 and a debate on how we’d set about it. This is bigger than any political party.

Hindsight eh

I actually shocked, May is trying to blackmail MPs to vote her deal through.
It shows she has no morals, it failed but instead of seeing what she can do shes just run the clock down.

We are a joke at the moment, its no wonder the EU wont budge.
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

Nearly 3 years and we are no further along with addressing the 2 key issues that were highlighted on day 1 of the vote.

1. How do you reconcile the political will not to have a hard border between NI/ROI with the economic necessity of Brexit.

2. Why would the EU give a more favourable trading position to the UK with the risk of other members wanting their own A la carte version of Brexit and therefore the EU as we know it "breaking up".

That said I am not at all impressed with the Republic of Ireland's attitude during these talks. They are acting like they have an equal say in things. Their GDP is 10% of ours. Frankly to try and put pressure on us is laughable.

Looks like the EU wants mays deal to go through.. i wonder why 😑.

Its a disgraces that a twice rejected deal can be shoved through for a third vote with no actual changes and on the back of the PM using a political idea right out of hitlers book. (The UK against MPs) she is an absoloute disgrace and the only reason she still around is because Labour is being led by JC

Of what significance is the size of the ROI’s economy? How does it make any difference to the issue of the border?

In any case the ROI economy is part of the EU economy which is much bigger than ours. If economic clout has any significance the ROI has it in spades by being part of the EU.

Simply Ireland leaves the EU: problem solved no hard border. Corbyn quits. Get a leader who represents “people like us” not southern city centre students and we kinda get Labour back of sorts

I'd say we should put a border in the north sea and when DUP complain they are being treated differently to the rest of the UK we should let Scotland stay in too and put a border there too. Problem solved.

Also London can stay in too and put a border at the M25. And Manchester (border at M60).

That would go a long way to ending division in the country. Everyone gets what they want.

Oh it also ends the country too, but that's a small price to pay for keeping out foreigners and people who "are not like us".

Problems solved.

Give Northern Ireland back to Ireland where it belongs. All Ireland is then part of the EU.
Job done.
