I can't get over the fact that she represents one of the most Remain leaning constituencies in the country.
May said eArlier in the week there would be indicative votes? Or did they just change their mind after the no deal vote? Fucking cunts
What's a "Remain leaning constituency"?
Yep, it's sickening that the Tories have managed to divert so much of the nation's attention away from the literal death they are causing through benefit cuts and freezes. Unless we miraculously don't leave then there's a fair chance that we won't see any meaningful (good) change on that front for a decade or more.Brexit is all consuming so I'm not surprised the Spring statement has basically gone right under the rug, but:
Benefits freeze hits 10 million poor families, but top 0.1%'s wealth swells
Tory economics at it again.
£152m funding from EU to help Stoke and surrounding area. Good luck getting that from the government
Better do it now than later when it drops real bad. It's at 1.31 against the USD right now iirc, was at 1.33 yesterday.
I would imagine it's the latter - I've a feeling she wants MV3 first..
She is the weakest PM in my living memory. Just awful.
So this week the plan was for Mv2 to appeal to remainders worried about the prospect of no deal
EU can’t tell us what to do, but they can explain they need a clear reason for a long extension, and that the current deal is not a good reason - basically saying ‘Ref or GE or GTFO’ without actually saying itJust imagine the reaction from the Daily Mail commentariat lol.
I don't think the EU would dare use a 2nd referendum or GE as a condition for an extension because it would be viewed by Brexiters and the media as the EU directly interfering their country's own affairs, and it would only enforce the perception that the UK needs "take back control" from the big, bad EU. And if a 2nd referendum did happen on those terms, the Leave campaign would use it as fuel to drive more conspiracy theories and anti-EU sentiment amongst the public. I do think the UK's hand needs to be forced on a 2nd referendum, but I don't see the EU doing it at all.
I have no clue how the UK plans to get out of this, and it seems like the only winners in this (highly likely) no deal scenario are a few assholes in parliament and the disaster capitalists who will swoop down like vultures as everything goes to shit.
I’m flying mid-April so I’m as cautious. Fortunately it is a short trip so don’t need a lot of cash. Unfortunately I am going to Poland which is a largely card-free place so need some physical cash otherwise I would use my fee free credit card.Ha, I'm supposed to be flying to Disney Paris at the end of the month. Been thinking that I need to get some currency exchanged sooner rather than later in case there's serious tankage, but I'm also at the edge of my seat waiting to see how things like flights are gonna go too.
Right, but since they don't have to give the UK an extension they can say 'we'll only give you an extension if you X, Y or Z'.
Honestly, everything this week has gone as I predicted, although I did get nervous for a minute there last night when the tories started whipping people to vote for no deal.
It's always the same pattern: One day of hope followed by a day where the Tories swiftly fall back in line again and, to cap it all off, followed by some random Corbyn-fuckery to remind us that the opposition is in a dire state as well.
Better of getting some bitcoin, at least bitcoin will eventually balloon again, pound might freefall forever with this government.
