Anyone else feel that these Leavers' accusations of bullying being committed by the EU are a tad pathetic?

Not when the EU is openly threatening the Belfast Agreement, no. I'd say it's on the money.

Why? Because the EU are doing exactly what the Remain camp said and the Leave side are starting to realise they have little to no power in these negotiations and cant actually have their cake and eat it?

It is a bit pathetic, yeah.

49. The United Kingdom remains committed to protecting North-South cooperation and to its guarantee of avoiding a hard border. Any future arrangements must be compatible with these overarching requirements. The United Kingdom's intention is to achieve these objectives through the overall EU-UK relationship. Should this not be possible, the United Kingdom will propose specific solutions to address the unique circumstances of the island of Ireland. In the absence of agreed solutions, the United Kingdom will maintain full alignment with those rules of the Internal Market and the Customs Union which, now or in the future, support North-South cooperation, the allisland economy and the protection of the 1998 Agreement. 50. In the absence of agreed solutions, as set out in the previous paragraph, the United Kingdom will ensure that no new regulatory barriers develop between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom, unless, consistent with the 1998 Agreement, the Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly agree that distinct arrangements are appropriate for Northern Ireland. In all circumstances, the United Kingdom will continue to ensure the same unfettered access for Northern Ireland's businesses to the whole of the United Kingdom internal m


That was what the UK agreed to in the joint report.


Article 15 chapter 5 page 105

Should a subsequent agreement between the Union and the United Kingdom which allows addressing the unique circumstances on the island of Ireland, avoiding a hard border and protecting the 1998 Agreement in all its dimensions, become applicable after the entry into force of the Withdrawal Agreement, this Protocol shall not apply or shall cease to apply, as the case may be, in whole or in part, from the date of entry into force of such subsequent agreement and in accordance with that agreement.”

So if the UK sorts out the problem this won't apply. The UK didn't even bother putting out a proposal. For the sake of f*ck. Google it. How dare the EU legalise what we agreed to in December. It's like they're holding us to our word or something.

Indeed. The backstop for the whole of the UK to align. Agreed at December. All OK so far.

See that stuff this week about NI staying in the Customs territory of the EU as a backstop, no mention of GB? THAT'S the issue. And that was not agreed by the UK. It had not been a mere restatement of December, it is the EU overreaching to try and say NI stays in, if GB goes. And the PM rightly slapped them down. And they'll have to done it down now. An Irish Sea Border is a breach of the Belfast Agreement.

The UK have put out proposals on the border. Indeed, we already have a currency border, a tax border. Head of HMRC says firms could declare customs like they do tax. I want the UK and the EU(RoI), to sit down and sort it out. But NI is being used a wedge issue to keep all of the UK in a customs union. Barnier, Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney are playing with fire to ensure that happens IMO.

You complete nutter. Whether the whole of the UK and NI align is a matter for UK and NI. The reason it's not in the treaty is because that's between the NI and UK. Do you yearn for sovereignty without even knowing what it is? Why the f*ck would the EU put an internal UK matter in a treaty between the EU and the UK. If the UK chooses to align between UK and NI that's of no consequence to the EU. Infact it would be good for all concerned but it's not the EU who decides that.

Of course the EU will care. Trump only cares about himself (and/or Putin), so you're probably correct with him. You're right that we'll do FA though - a few harsh words will put Putin in his place Rolling Eyes.

When Litvinenko was poisoned and killed, Theresa May was Home Sec. and promised action. Fast forward 12 years, May is PM now and has received donations of £820,000 from Russian Oligarchs.

Not all is as it seems though. Im not one for tin foil hat theories but something about this doesnt quite sit right.

Yes, some utter f-wit released a Russian military WMD in Salisbury.

I'm not keen on May, but if your suggestion (on the back of no actual evidence) is that 'nothing' was done re. Litvinenko so the Tories/May could receive dodgy Russian cash, then you've clearly lost it.

Probably. Time will tell of course. May appears to be sticking to her guns with the expulsion of the Russian diplomats.

She wasnt, but she was Home Sec. when the inquest began. Should have said "..May became Home Sec...' Not my best worded post.

Good to see Farage throwing fish in the Thames in protest of the EU. Instead of, you know, doing his job and attending more than ONE meeting out of 42 of the EU Fisheries Committee.

He doesnt give a dusty tuppenny Frak about you or me or anyone. He's only ever been in it for himself. An odious, toad faced Frak whos teeth I wouldnt piss on if he was on fire.

If you still believe his cowpat then you are stupid beyond comprehension.

As it quickly found out when it went for a swim.  Unfortunately Fast'n'Furious Farrage was long gone to his next appointment so no lifebuoy for the poor UKIP voting fish.

But one less UKIP voter so the masses will be pleased.

Either be another leadership election or a split to a new Centrist party which will fail because Blair will be linked to it and he is toxic.

Have a feeling with Smith getting it....That the left are hoping they will leave..

Not sure they have the Bollox though...

Chuku is full of wind....As for Soubry she voted for a lot of Tory cuts including free school meals last week..

Might be the gift that keeps on giving if she joined a new party.

But you are right something will have to give.

If everyone keeps on repeating the message it must be true, like Labour being responsible for our economic position.

Having been a voter for 30 years the best PM by miles was Blair. Being honest yes he fecked up big time over one huge issue, but no other leader we have had in my lifetime has been as effective as he was in his first term. If you want to go in that direction then maybe it is an indication of the dire quality of our politicians in general, but there you have it.

The biggest issue is that despite the growing membership in the Labour party it does seem to be increasingly turning in on itself. It is getting less and less attractive for everyone else. Of course the Tories are simply dreadful, but relying on not being the tories can only get you so far.

I think Governments lose Elections....Rather than Oppositions winning them..

The fact Labour right wingers are turning on their leader is in my opinion because they see he has a good chance of winning...(I don't believe he will but he has a chance) and if he does they will be frozen out and rotting on the backbenches for years..

Very sobering for the Tories that after two weeks of Corbyn abuse wall to wall on every station..

The bad news for Corbyn, though, is his approval ratings are plummeting once again.

On how well/badly Jeremy Corbyn is doing as Labour Party leader:

Well: 31% (-14)
Badly: 56% (+19)

Brexit has several ways it will play out in my opinion and it is all bad for the PM however it goes.

If she gets her way and cobbles together some sort of a customs partnership deal with the EU to appease the DUP and those wishing to remain in Europe I am certain the hardline Tory Brexiteers will rise up against her and oust her as PM.

If there is a hard Brexit with no customs union/partnership deal then it is a hard border for Northern Ireland, loss of DUP support and EU supporters rounding against her at every turn and I think her position will be untenable.

She's failed to show leadership in any way, really. What she needs to do is come down hard on the hard Brexit rebels, particularly those in the cabinet.

Fact of the matter is that while the public voted to leave the EU, they did not vote for a hard Brexit, no matter what JRM or Disgraced Former Defence Secretary Liam Fox say.

That is the massive flaw in the whole vote though. What is/was Brexit? What would it mean? A hard Brexit or not. It was never clarified in my eyes and there should have been added description or clarification of what voting for Brexit meant. As in complete and utter cutting of all customs ties with Europe. And then those who did not want that have an option of Yes but remaining in a customs union.

I say this because even now the bickering still goes on.

Agreed.  It's like a country being asked to vote for independence without knowing what currency it would be using or if it would be a member of the EU.

Definitely. About time she called their bluff and sacked them at the next reshuffle. If they want to then precipitate a load of stupid naval gazing and open war in the Tory party while the country has to get on with one of the most important issues for decades, more fool them. It's not even like Fox, Davies, Johnson et al have really shown that their 'talent' would be missed in the Cabinet. This whole mess has been about Tory infighting over Europe, probably since 1975. Useless.

Absolutely agreed. But since when has May put country before party?

You mean the SNP who said that Scotland would be admitted to the EU on a "fast-track" basis we all knew that would never happen?

Quite honestly, I support Scots independence as I feel that England and Scotland are becoming less compatible as time goes on. But the SNP were woefully unprepared for the referendum and it showed in the votes.

Do you know what? I agree with most of that. I am not so sure they were 'woefully' unprepared though but unprepared in some areas. Another area where they fought a woefully uphill battle was on the media front. TV coverage was notably biased in favour of the No campaign so that helps in the persuasion of how people vote. And despite all of those handicaps it was still such a close run race.
