peter bone, hardcore brexiteer, says PM may must consider her position as 63.1% confidens in her by tory mp vote is not enough of a mandate for her to stay
in same breath peter bone also says that brexit must go ahed as the people have clearly spoken with a mandate of 52%

am i mising something?

Surely you should wait and hear what Peter bones wife thinks?

Before anyone thinks that is sexism, worth looking up Peter bone and his house of commons speeches and questions

On a serious note, may winning today plays to us remainers. She will lose next meaningful Vote still and then it's no Deal exit or people's referendum mark 2 is my take. Her losing today would have led to a harder brexit and no Deal I suspect. Much as I dislike her, for now thar result works best for remain supporters

Looking at the betting odds, since I last looked a little while ago they have certainly got fairly tight regarding a 2nd referendum with no 2nd referendum just the slight favourite.

Don't know what effect May retaining the leadership had on these odds. A hard Brexit would surely have no chance of being agreed by the EU and passed through the Commons. So that would have been no deal and whether then to a 2nd referendum?

May must have more chance than any harder Brexit successor, however slight many may feel, of finally getting some sort of Brexit agreed.

Getting bored of Brexit now.
Let's get some concessions on the backstop, get the amended bill through and then get some non political news in the headlines.

But Brexit is going to go on for years because trade deals take years. So either buckle in or get behind a second vote

Yes. For all those who voted for Brexit, sorry but you can't bail now.

 Brexit will be over in 3 months when we leave the EU.

The consequences of Brexit may take a while to resolve and develop.

According to the transition period, Brexit will not be over until Dec. 2020. Until then, many of the existing EU rules apply so Brexit is not 'over'.

Of course, if the deal falls through then, yes, there is a March date in three months.

As to, "The consequences of Brexit may take a while to resolve and develop," all I've got is 'sad smile' face.......

Brexit has taught us all many things I believe. About people and about how we surround ourselves with our own point of view.

I respectfully ask and "leave" voter to watch the last one minute of the speech below. THIS is what I heard and THIS is what I voted for but it is not what has happened. I fully accept that any "leave" voter can come back with videos of their own they illustrate an opposing view but my point is that whichever way this ends, an awful lot of people are going to be disillusioned with politics to an extent we haven't seen before. Democracy has taken a real kicking through this process. Its all rather sad whatever your viewpoint is.

Pretty much It's not just the Europeans who think we've gone crazy - I've been to a Spanish conversation group a couple of times while over here in the US for a few weeks (a mix of native speakers from Latin America and Americans, many of whom seem to work partly in Spanish and/or visit Latin America a lot) and as soon as any of them find out I'm British, I get a barrage of questions about why my country has gone crazy and how the Brexit mess is finally going to turn out (impossible to answer that bit but they seem to expect me to know) ... and this is from people in a country that elected Trump ffs!   

Admittedly, it's not a standard cross-section of the US population by a long way - I'd be surprised if any of them actually voted for Brexit's main US cheerleader, for obvious reasons, but still, the UK's delusional self-inflicted disaster certainly hasn't escaped the notice of those on the other side of the Atlantic

Amazing tweet from the Home Office the other day - mobile.twitter.com/ukhomeoffice/status/1078206349148708865

Not only does does it give two seperate dates in the tweet and in the link, and still hasn't been corrected two days later (I find this frankly astounding) but making people pay to find if they can stay in the country and give a message of so little detail is a disgrace.

What happened to EU citizens having the right to stay here no matter what?

I do agree that it is a disgrace and people wonder why I am still concerned about my own right to stay in Spain.  However, where the two dates are concerned, I see one as being the date from when you CAN apply and the other is the date by which you must have completed your application.

It is a nerve wracking period however and I am sure there are millions of others out there who share my concerns.
