So a dedicated remainer suggests an emergency government to be led by two staunch remainers.

Anyone care to hazard a guess what they might do re Brexit?

I would imagine they would call for a referendum to test the latest situation versus remain, as polls show there is a 55% in favour of Remaining.

Those saying that is anti democratic should watch what is happening in Scotland.

Perhaps give the people a vote, again, as so much more is now known about outcomes than what we were told in 2016. Things like possible shortages of insulin were never talked about back then.

I only got to "...A French port official has utterly embarrassed Emanuel Macron..." before giving up. Could we maybe find a man at Dover to say something to embarrass Boris? I'm sure that's a possibility.

Maybe we should sell ourselves to the USA who after being rebuffed by the Greenland takeover bid, they might like to make us an offer we can't refuse...

The US has a history of buying territory. Eg Alaska was bought for $7.2 million , Louisiana was $15 million, and other southern states like California , Utah etc cost $15 million. With our National Debt at £1.8 trillion, we could probably be picked up quite cheaply

I think that this thread has quickly evolved into the silly season thread!

Silly season thread and silly season politics.

It is a bit like the Gunpowder plot without the Gunpowder.

When will it end, October the 31st maybe. Before or after is my guess.

Will it end peacefully, If Hong Kong is anything to go by maybe maybe not.

I can see trouble ahead whoever wins.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
