It's not even 24hurs yet!

And another half a million less than 7 hours after my previous post - past the 1.25 million mark now. Despite the frequent crashes & "down for maintenance" messages.

What seems to be going on is unbelievable. E.g. undemocratic for the electorate to be asked a 2nd time (despite 3 years and a lot changed) but “completely democratic” for MPs to be asked a 3rd time agter just a few days when nothing has changed (beyond a lot of bullying) - talk about hypocrisy.

Welcome back. Please direct your fire at Whitehall (the executive) rather than Westminster (the MPs), though. This Brexishambles is mostly down to Chairman May's refusal to listen, compromise or build consensus. I can quite understand why the EU are unwilling to renegotiate with May: she negotiated with them in bad faith, basically, by suggesting she could get her deal approved when she was comically far from that.

I accept your comments (I’m coming to this without the history, just a snapshot). But, I get the impression (maybe incorrectly) that in addition to May, the two parties called the “Conservatives” are in part to blame. I can’t believe MPs like Ress-Mogg (et. al.) are helping smooth anything along.

It's Reece Moggie and other far rightwingers in the Tory party who caused the referendum in the first place,then May(who should be renamed Mayhem the stupid )who then determined that it would be Mayday(sorry) and now looks as if it will actually be Mayday 21st going of the news as that's all that the EU are willing to extend A50 to :?

Maybe - but Brexit hasn't happened yet. It could yet be that Brexiters won the first battle but lose the war - to put it into the we won you lost context that leavers seem to like.

Bit of a playground jab?

Speaking only for myself, I never saw it as a win without cost. I regretted that others felt upset by it. I still do.
