What an idiot she is.

Did she not question why Johnson moved it from the WA, as it was in May's deal and also on what planet can a political opponent trust the bullshitting ****?

Of course she voted for the bills timetable.

She is a prime candidate for deselection.

I think Remainers are going to have to vote tactically, assuming an election comes before a referendum. Itís not going to be easy - I think liberals and labour have highly antagonistic leaders; Swinson puts my teeth right on edge and the Libs on here donít seem awfully keen on St Jeremy - but needs must.

Talk about tactical voting will be critical this time.

Only have the print version.

The BBC picked it up and number 10 sent poor old Kwasi Kwarteng to defend the Government; a big fail. Coverage is better on the Guardian website than the BBC (no surprise there).

I am astonished how little censure labour MPs who supported a Rees Mogg, Johnson, Patel, Raab, Javid driven Brexit.

A Brexit that comes with a cast iron guarantee to fvck the working class as hard as possible.

How can they possibly support such a vision of society?

They can never now criticise Trump - as it is they that have voted for his vision of racist, hate-filled, rights free, corporate-run society.

Do not be fooled by the vision of a Singapore style system toted by Brexiteers.

The government in Singapore invests massively in public transport, utilities (government owned) social housing (deliberately mixed in terms of ethnicity and class) and even more in education.

Johnson's and Rees Mogg's offshore model is Panama, not Singapore.

There are Singaporeans who own plenty of properties in London who live in government housing in Singapore...

Is exactly right they also ad 200% import duty on all cars and limit the number on the raid so you pay the same again for a certificate of entitlement plus the need to park off road. BUT you donít need a car due to the taxis and public transport. Canít see the Uk population accepting that

The Singapore model would be great for a UK with a population of 6 Million, as a model for a country with 60 Million it would be great for the richest 6 million, for the remaining 54 Million, well, start starving now.

The Singapore model of heavy state infrastructure investment, superb and affordable public transport, cheap efficient government owned services and utilities, plentiful well-designed and mixed social housing, plus a high achieving education system all or which underpins a regional trading and business hub would certainly work for an independent London inside the EU.

And people moan about Panama and Bermuda. The UK is the money laundering capital of the world due in no small part to inward investment in UK property. Stamping down on this would be a good start. But hey, to do stuff like this, we need a government.

I’m sure BJ will make some promises and it will all be fine, and Caroline Flint will vote for it.

But overall its mostly those that don't work that voted to leave, those leavers not going to care about those that do work....

A majority of those working full-time or part-time voted to remain in the EU; most of those not working voted to leave.

Totally bizarre....majority think referendum shouldn’t have been held in the first place, majority think its a bad deal that BJ has got, majority would vote Remain, but still the Tories stay in front and support goes up.....go figure!

Anyone interested.....

Devon-based extremist Katie Hopkins has previously tweeted that we will leave the EU on 31 October, or “I will drink a pot of tea naked in the Apprentice losers cafe with Farage’s face on each nipple.”
