I don't think so. It's generally the poorest in society that riot, and the poorest in society will probably be the worst affected by Brexit.......given that, there may be rioting if they force a crash exit.

There's definitely going to be a backstop, whether brexiters like it or loathe it

Its to stop the US  using us to put in their crap via a no backstop border

Since Ireland is in the EU they can't come through there to get to us.

I think you need to look again at what the backstop is for Ritchie

It's to keep the free trade zone active between the Republic of Ireland (which is in the EU) and Northern Ireland (which could be dragged out of the EU).
It has nothing to do with the USA or anywhere else and has everything to do with the Good Friday Agreement.

It is utterly ridiculous that they can't actually tell us what the effects will be. We are being made aware it is coming, but it is still little more defined than it was when they were telling their fairy tales in the referendum. How can anyone take the country seriously anymore?

I the run up to the Indy Ref the SNP had a paper available, 670 pages of it, detailing all aspects of Independence.
Westminster has barely managed a pamphlet of the effects of Brexit, the useless cunts. And that's after the fact.

They’ve come up with deal, but has to be accepted by both Parliament and the EU

Doesn't look like Parliament will except it either!
Even though i voted to remain i am getting increasingly annoyed with politicians who seem to completely ignore their constituents (albeit only 52% of them) and seem determined to drag this out longer and longer, its not them who are suffering with this to be honest they should just get it over with now its been years since the referendum!

It wasn’t voted on a constituent basis, if it had, May’s version would have been accepted and we would have been out by now

Tbh, I’m sick of the whole affair

That's what they're hoping for, people to just say 'fuck it, no deal it is'.

Tomorrow it begins, or doesn't.
Can you imagine what it's going to be like if they pass the proposal to begin the actual Brexit negotiations?

It'll have taken three years just to decide whether you will or not.

Seen this from the Bangkok Post? https://www.reddit.com/r/europe/comments/dj6c7e/bangkok_posts_take_on_brexit   :cheesy:

The Laundromat on Netflix aims squarely at the USA, but it's also a Brexit movie.

We already know that London doesn't want its tax affair scrutinised under the new EU laws. (That's the only bit of 'taking back our laws' they're interested in. )
They don't want to among those who get caught out with their snouts in the troughs of world wide corruption.

I've always resented how our media have been representing General Elections as if they're Presidential Elections (presenting it as a vote for a figurehead) in the last 20 odd years, it's an entirely different political system.

Interestingly..

If Boris doesn't comply with the Benn Act to call for a Brexit extension tonight, then the Scottish Court can send a letter, which carries the same legal weight as the PM sending it himself, to the EU asking for one.
So he's backed into a corner, but he can rightfully claim that he never asked for an extension himself.

If that's the case we can probably expect to see some anti Scotland rhetoric in the coming weeks, which will play into the hands of the Scottish Independence movement.
(Some 'little englander' MP's have a tendency to forget that the UK is made up of four nations and throw a hairy fit when it suddenly confronts them)

They have disproportionately loud voices in the media though.

So he sent an unsigned photocopy of an extension request to the EU

Smells like contempt of court. (Not something they take lightly)

There's no such thing as a 'no deal' Brexit.
If you crashed out, you'd have to adopt WTO regulations on the same level as some of the worst dirtbox countries on the planet, and immediately have to start trade negotiations with the EU and the rest of the world from the worst position imaginable.

Lets face it, you've already shat in your own bed.

I see the latest Boris tactic is to hit parliament with a particularly fat AUP they hoped no-one would read.
...then moan when MP's said they'd like to read it and send out his gobshites to say it's 'pretty much' the same as the ones they've seen in the last three years.

So he's gone for a policy of not much information to a flood, that needs to get through in a rush, in a diversionary tactic that wouldn't fool a five year old.
