    The legal default was leaving on 29th March, deal or not. That was passed into legislature, was it updated?

    So if her deal passes, that means that she's achieved her objective, so she must quit If it doesn't pass, she's failed as prime minister, so she stays on. Is just insanity

    Yeah, but why do you want out? How will leaving the EU improve your life?

    "I'm resigning because I'm useless and my deal is crap. But if you pass my deal, then I'll go, which will be good, because I'm crap" Brilliant logic

    Let's see what happens! A leap in the dark in other words. Clue :the EU represents a much bigger market than the UK. That makes it more valuable as a trading partner so it will obtain better terms. The UK on its own would get screwed to the wall as the is would know its desperate. We'd have US healthcare companies running the NHS. If we left the EU and signed a trade deal with India, we'd get nailed by them as well. They'd know we were desperate, and as a condition of a trade deal, they'd demand better via access. What did that do to your concerns about immigration? There's no scenario that's as good as staying in the EU

    Bercow most definitely needs to stay as speaker. All these brexit people who have a hard on for the word "sovereignty", but they don't like it when parliament goes the opposite way to the i he they want

    "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.  Who honestly didn’t see something like this coming?" That's what he said. What other interpretation could you put on it?

    What was it that you said then? The only thing you've exposed is your own ignorance

    Completely misrepresenting things yet again. That's about your level, isn't it? It's not a decision, it was the result of a non-binding indicative referendum. The ruling class did get their way, the whole thing is a disaster capitalist coup, which mogg's father wrote the manual on. May's quite happy to push it through, because she knows, as a tory, that it's the vulnerable people of this country that will pay the price. Yes, a majority of voters h voted for it three years ago, on a lower winning threshold than you'd see in a golf club election. I'm not shitting any bricks, I just don't want to see this country commit an act of economic self-harm for the personal enrichment of a group of tories who've never done a day's work i n their lives. I'd tell you to open your eyes, but as someone who recently expressed the thought that the Muslims in nz somehow had it coming, I think the effort is wasted on you. Haven't you also previously said that the moon landings didn't happen?

    "we didn't like the vote" Strawman, and you know it. Brexit is so badly - conceived, it can't be executed without causing this country harm. Having another vote isn't anti democratic, it's pro-democratic. If brexit were six a great idea, why are you worried? It'll be another win for leave, surely? Your just worried your treasured little brexit won't survive first contract with reality

    Voting is never anti-democratic. Its the essence of democracy. A lot has changed in three years. Most reasonable people should now have realised that any form of brexit will leave us diminished. So a vote, given the current deadlock, is entirely reasonable. Compare and contrast, if you will, with Theresa may going back to parliament again and again with the same vote when nothing has changed. Presumably, you think that is anti democratic as well?

    Voting is anti - democratic now, is it?

    Well that's another thing you're wrong on, because farage said if it was 52-48 to remain, it would be game on. So you're happy to give up the many benefits of being in the EU, because they're not important, and we must enact the result of an indicative referendum which saw electoral law broken? Presumably democracy for you is a one time hit. Absolutely nothing you say makes any sense at all.

    Yes, you see that type of troll on Facebook. They think it's subtle. We did have someone on here before, like that, you're right. Can't think of the name, though

    Nothing will change? The only way nothing will change is if we stay in single market or customs union. In the event of no deal, our gdp will go down ten percent. Maybe you've got a nice pension to live on, but the outlook will be bleak for the youth and the poor. But that's not important? Wow. The vote wasn't legally binding, parliament is the executive and it's doing its job. Strange arguments from someone who says they voted remain. I don't believe you at all

    Cancel brexit, you mean? I can barely believe she'll do that

    There's a few people quoted two years ago now, Spanish expats, so g that they wanted the UK to come out. Mindless. They're no hope of me finding the quotes now, sorry

    I'll forgive Bercow anything now. May is utterly despicable. Pathetic. It's got to be a second ref now

    Damien Johnson would be an interesting one. Quite honestly, why not? We've had so many no - hopers, let's have Damien.
