We're in a limbo.

At this stage it would seem pretty reasonable for one of the 27 countries to make it a condition for their approval of the extension request that the U.K. hold a general election sooner rather than later.

No. Spain will ask for Gibraltar.

These are not mutually exclusive.

I remember Clippy! Not as much fun as the flight simulator in Excel, but a nice touch. For about ten minutes...

And fishing rights, and Northern Ireland. And May will hand them all over! 

As soon as she tries to sell her house I'm in there.

I think it would be fantastic to get rid of Northern Ireland.

So, it is evidently terribly undemocratic to allow the public another vote after circumstances have, if not changed, at least been greatly clarified. But trying to ram the same bill through the same session of the House of Commons multiple times in a few weeks with nothing having changed is just like good Tory government.

Idiots are in power in the UK, France, Spain and Italy. Germany still standing but how long more?

All that has been clarified is that if your team captain kicks the ball into his (or her) own goal then you will lose. 

We have learned that most of our MPs are liars (see manifestos). And that the EU bureaucrats are even more unpleasant and antidemocratic than we imagined. 

I still have no idea what leaving the EU could be like. And I have no idea how much extra the NHS might get. (Apologies to all those people, and there seem to be very many of them, who have crystal balls and do have this knowledge. Why didn't you make a killing at Cheltenham though?)

Cheltenham is steeplechase ... flat racing is more predictable. It's all about 'form'. I once bet on Mtoto at the Prix :lArc but lost because he had a cold.It did not put me off at Ascot Gold Cup. 

BTW Is there a BREXIT' Beechers Brook or Canal Turn to negotiate yet?
