Bozo just lost his sixth vote, He won't get an election before Brexit day. So No Deal Brexit is off the table. It's weird. I'm sat here watching an unelected* Prime Minister scream at our elected Parliament for refusing to let him force through a version of Brexit which he swore to the British people would never happen.

The leavers' problem is that there is no single form of Brexit that a majority can agree on, and that's just among Brexiters, let alone the country. Hard, soft, left, right, none of them can convince their detractors to compromise. For three years now Parliament has tried in vain to implement the advice of the electorate. All of the options available damage the country, and offer fewer benefits than we gain from membership. It is now time to revoke our announcement of intention to leave under Article 50, and try to repair the colossal damage already cause.,

Corbyn is now reportedly saying he can make Brexit work. If the majority no longer support Brexit how can he win?

Corbyn: Labour would offer 'credible Leave option'

Corbyn has this left-wing fantasy "Lexit" where labour selects the "good bits" like single customs union and worker protections, but leaves out freedom of movement, and the more "capitalistic" aspects of the EU. It's nonsense, and his own party policy is more remainey than he is. He's still capable of fucking up a walkover win against the most unpopular and incompetent Conservative government in decades.

Anyone with half a brain knew that the promises made by the Brexiteers were nothing but cons. As with our version of Boris, the con worked well enough to get these boobs elected but fell apart upon further review. The UK has too much to lose and nothing to gain from leaving the union. Sooner or later those in charge of the country will admit it publicly and refuse to implement the referendum. It was non-binding anyway was it not?

Problem is there are parts of both sides that support Brexit. That makes it harder.
