It's not changing the deal itself though.

You don't know what 17.4 million people want though.

Re: Brexit

Did some of you have a memory lapse within the space of a day?

I have just removed several silly posts.

Should you not learn after 3 timeouts, a fourth time will see you banned from Cable Forum.

I don't understand this comment.

You regularly say that the 17.4 million knew what they voted for but none of them were told "vote Leave and we will hurt the U.K. at least in the short term and also probably the medium term as well"?

So this scenario is definitely off the agenda then. We can only leave with No Deal if it fulfils the pledges of the Leave campaign. That is, after all, what you voted for, right?

At the end of the day, May has a little more than she did last year. Whether it's enough to sway the vote, time will tell, but she can say she's tried. Junker can also face up to his stakeholders in the event of a no-deal Brexit and say he went the extra kilometre to try and prevent it happening.

Re: Brexit

In view of the warnings about a hard brexit who is stockpiling and what are you stockpiling?

I'm not sure whether to do so as lack of space will be my issue. I just hope that the medication I'm prescribed will still be available.I'm already having trouble with one product..

I always stockpile tinned/preserved and dried food at this time of year ready to stock up the food cupboards on my boat so if we have shortages i'll be semi prepared,and there's
always rabbits /pigeons etc to shoot.

i think i have most of the country's supply of lamb chops in the freezer

Erm yes it was said there could be issues, it was still worth the risk because I wanted to leave the totally corrupted EU. 90% of the World Future Trade growth, sounds a lot better than a declining 10% economic bubble, that will be the EU.

However, Pierre has repeatedly stated he voted Remain. But unlike you, respects the Democratic result.

Article 50 will need extended even if Theresa May wins the vote.
