Still, my point is that it is ironic that someone like you, considering this litany of lies from various Leavers before the referendum, now has the audacity to cry about economists warning about the outcome of a hard Brexit and referring to this as "Project Fear". "Project Fear" was claiming that after a Brexit you would have 350m more to put into the NHS, "Project Fear" was to state that he would rather be poorer than have more immigrants coming into the UK (Farage), "Project Fear" was to imply that if you don't leave the EU the UK wouldn't be weakened and Scotland more likely to want out (Gove), "Project Fear" was to say that Brexit wouldn't affect your participation in the single market (Hannan), and so on ad nauseum.

You are oversimplifying Project Fear. Project Fear is much broader than that and encompasses everything from food and pharmaceutical shortages, to jammed ports with meat rotten in container ships. 

PS

Plus ''Turkey Twizzlers'' returning to school menus haha.

Alternative Irish Border arrangements, trusted-trader scheme, satellite navigation and Mobile inspection, discussed here,

The EU then are speaking utter bollocks when they state the British none proposal of ''realistic alternatives'' (Tusk).

So... Boris is going to ask the Queen to suspend Parliament.

I guess this is going to be her answer :lol:

Corbyn has now almost completed his trans-operation from arch-Brexiteer (before the term was invented) to arch-remainer, borrowing their vernacular about ''cliff edges'' and so forth. He has even adopted the remaniacs prevalence for thorough mendacity,

Clue, the ''bankers'' all support(ed) remain!!

Prorogue, and she has to act in accordance with the advice of her government. Prorogation is actually standard, determining the end of a parliamentary session and the state opening of a new one.

The Queen will just do whatever the government tells her to. Boris will suspend parliament and that’s it. 

Fucking pointless even asking her. 

De jure it is only the royal prerogative which can prorogue parliament. By convention however the royal prerogative is excised at the behest of the government.

Asking the Queen is a technicality/tradition. But it is the way it must be done. No PM can just suspend Parliament because he feels like it. Besides there is such riot now among political parties and members of Parlirment. Who knowns what's gonna happen

Agreed. He is playing a blinder. It is hilarious watching remainers flap.

What is going to happen is the Queen will prorogue parliament circa 9th September, until new state opening on 14th October, acting on advice of her government.

 By October 14th there won't be enough time to stop hard brexit. You could say "so what"? Well the markets and business in general are going to hell. Not only in the UK but also around the world. It could creat a big economic crisis everywhere. And also Boris or any other PM for that matter shouldn't be able to manipulate Parliament as they wish.

We'll see who is right on the economic.

Boris can because it is perfectly constitutional. It is deft - I agree - but perfectly legal. John Major did something similar in 1997 during the cash-for-questions debacle.

The UK is not right on the economy. Otherwise nobody in the world would be concerned about the consequences of Brexit

The Speaker and MP are saying it is NOT "perfectly constitutional"

It's not Churchill he's emulating.

Anyway not a surprise. Only hope ever was a general election and with Labour remainers backing Lib Dems, Labour can't win meaning it's a lost cause.

Vote Lib Dem, get Brexit.

It is perfectly constitutional: every time a parliamentary session ends, parliament is prorogued. Bercow is an ardent remainer.

Remainers continue to demonstrate they are utterly thick when discussing the British constitution,

Just to give your some idea of how frequent prorogation is, it always proceeds the annual state opening of parliament which has occurred since the 14th century!!

PS

Just to clarify,

- remainers don't understand how parliamentary sessions and prorogation works

- they don't understand how prime ministers are chosen in the United Kingdom (''Boris doesn't have a democratic mandate'').

- they don't understand ''yes/no'' referenda, by which the highest percentage wins and that is what is subsequently enacted (''we want to rerun the referendum, only with people's stuck upfront'').

It is supposed to be leavers who are uneducated!!

Take a bow, son!

p.s. Hopefully the Remainers cry themselves a river so vast, it carries them out to sea, where they can live out their days hand in hand with their European friends under their beloved EU overlords. Wankers.

I have always thought the Brits would come to their senses and avoid a Brexit. But now it doesn't only look highly likely, it also looks like they will leave, three years after the referendum, without an agreement. What an absolute clusterfuck :lol:

If the backstop was removed and replaced with alternative arrangements which have been set forth by the United Kingdom, it is fair to say they'd be a deal - even at this late stage - so it is ultimately the EU's fault in nailing the banner so stridently to a dead withdrawal agreement which has been thrown out of Parliament thrice.
