It's good, but it's not the right answer - all he's done is confirm that metropolitan scum should take a massive dip in the ocean.

"All Freight On The Canals!!!"

and a stockpile of benzodiazepines

and the next BBC General Election coverage to feature Henry Rollins as in-house band, throatily yacking out the Survation polls, under the pseudonym of, you guessed it, Henry Pollins Band.

Chris Grayling to take up specially created post as Shadow Minister for Timetabling Near Earth Objects - it's surely impossible to fuck that one up

I didn't quite gather what you think should be done although Grayling as asteroid scheduler appeals - that should keep us safe by millions of miles.

As in a solution? I'm struggling to come up with anything. Though now I'm considerably less hungover than last week, the thought of a massive EU-themed firework display actually makes me chuckle, and does not in anyway trigger an apoplectic rage at the imagining of all of the Europe being absorbed by the London fatberg post March.

Was the London firework display EU themed - didn't really notice.

Stewart Lee invariably makes me smile, if not laugh out loud though I did neither for his latest offering https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jan/06/its-the-thought-that-counts-with-brexit-gifts
"Dear Auntie Eva. I don’t know if I agree with you that ‘Hitler had some good ideas, he just put them into practice badly’ ..
Parodying anyone who voted to leave the EU as elderly Hitler loving racists is not especially helpful, any more than calling Anna Soubry a Nazi is. What is going on in this country, it is so very sad. It is true I want my country back ... from the various extremist factions that are currently tearing it apart for their own political agendas.

Me too, but I see it as a (now) majority who don't want their Europe torn away from them by people with their own political agendas and those they are misleading.

A large, possibly a majority, percentage would vote to Remain as they did before. Another large percentage would feel betrayed and further disenfranchised, perceiving they were ridden roughshod over by the urban middle classes. Another percentage, we don't know how large, probably wouldn't vote at all, feeling sickened by the whole ultimately disempowering process. I would probably place myself in the last category.

Surely, surely, the only way forward now is to work in partnership and co-operation with Europe on trade, human rights etc. whilst retaining some autonomy on border control, fishing rights ect. I understand Theresa May's deal does more or less meet these criteria. What on earth is the Labour Party playing at shouting from the side-lines generally advocating chaos so they can be seen to be picking up the pieces - when they should have been working in coalition with the sensible members the Govt (there are a few) to find a solution. I cancelled my Labour Party membership yesterday as have lost faith pretty much in the entire political system that currently 'governs' this country.

For me I want my country back from the political idiots and extremists in westminster (I'm in Wales). I hear you about cancelling your labour membership, I cancelled mine after the last leadership election and corbyns 10 stupid pledges. I saw a link to Emily Thornberry the other day shouting something about people calling for a second ref are just doing it to criticise Corbyn? With nonsense like that it's hardly surprising that people are leaving, it really shows they've lost the plot.

Then there's this today on Scottish Labour

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/ecc9bbb8-136d-11e9-8239-c0a124428b01

As with Welsh Labour they're not serving any real purpose. Welsh Labour even voted along with the tories to give back devolved powers, which the people of Wales voted to increase!! Come the next elections I have no idea who I'd vote for!

If there is a second ref then I'm hopeful people will have taken in the mess of the past 2 years and vote with their heads, not unrealistic propaganda and lies.
