Re: How can Corbyn not react?

I don't think any new party would be able to stop A50 but could be a way forward for many of the disenfranchised in those parties, assuming they overcome their political differences and put workable policies forward that is.

I'm always amazed when they go on about a snap GE assuming they're going to win. In pretty much all polls they're trailing the tories, which speaks volumes in itself.

Living in Wales since losing my job due to the EU ref I've had a lot of time to think about things, one of the things I have found very interesting is the independence movements in Scotland and Wales. One thing the quitters didn't plan for was the potential break up of the uk. Scotland will get another ref if we leave the EU and next time the uk govt can't use the excuse that we're "stronger together" within the EU to entice Scottish voters to stay. In Wales the movement is growing rapidly, with the Yes group having almost 10,000 members, plus other groups and supporters not in groups all rooting for it, but a long way to go in Wales though.

I was having an argument with the leader of a local party here who rampantly supports leaving the EU, but for some reason supports Westminster rule and keeping the uk, claiming he's a "unionist". I've never actually figured out the logic of that as he voted leave so this country (he lives in Wales too, and is a country in its own right) won't have another country making it's laws (which the EU doesn't, but he doesn't want to accept that) for us. England is another country telling Wales its laws and how to run its country.

The mind still boggles!
