Lol. Vote for a 2nd referendum only got 84 votes. Yes Labour were told to abstain but 334 MPs voted against a 2nd ref. - a majority of the House. Corbyn playing a blinder!

Factual statements are devoid of emotions, the people voted for brexit, fact, their parliament is working against it, fact, that represents a betrayal, fact.

But have fun projecting some more of your ideas onto others, happily I have a busy day and weekend ahead and will be blissfully unaware of it anyway.
*pats on head*

Using words like "betrayal" is classed as emotive language.

So 3 votes in one week and twice the political class have betrayed their electorate.

Ironically, only the dissenters in the EU can save them now.
You get what you vote for apparently. The 'political class' was voted into power by the electorate, remember. If what you say is true then an election must be held immediately so this political class can be removed from power.

This whole thing is a mess. How does the UK push a vote to never have "no deal"? What if EU decides "no deal" and just lets the clock tick down?

Apparantly this is a unique moment in British politics, or even in the world. Parliament, the government and the people are all in perfect sync: Nobody knows wtf is going on :)

No, no. The actual Parliament that was voted in after the referendum is supposedly inferior to a non-binding, ambiguous referendum.

Nobody outside of Parliament, the British media, mybb, gives a toss anymore. Bored to tears with the whole thing. Even comedians have lost interest.
The thought of another 2 years of fecking around with Brexit is a bit irritating, it must be said.

Nige is desperate to stay relevant, unfortunately for him his clique of racist/xenophobic hangers on seems to be dwindling away.
