    May is gone after the month of May ... fits! :-D

    Let's see if, by then or afterwards with new PM, the British Parliament will finally be able to tell the EU by a majority of the votes, whether they want to make Brext with the negotiated deal or with a "no deal".
    Slowly the madhouse in the UK Parliament is just annoying ... no matter who plays PM in Downing Street No. 10!

    She did not create Brexit! The British people created that "crud" of their own free will at the ballot-box.

    You are pissing up the wrong tree ... !

    Want another vote to confirm the fact that the British electorate wanted Brexit of their own free will? Go for it!

    I give you five years of less than illustrious economic growth along with a two-point increase in your long-term Unemployment Rate. Already two car manufacturers are signing contracts to shift production into the EU. (Poland has plenty of trained hands!)

    Check back in five-years and we'll see how you plural feel.

    "Britain Waives the Rules" ... !

    Ehm ... you know that I am a supporter of the EU ... even being told to be paid by the EU ... ROFL ... ;-)

    Anyway ...
    The point is that it is only up to the British themselves, as they want the Brexit. The EU is ready and waiting only for the British decision on this ... a decision of the British Parliament with a majority of the votes of the deputies of the Parliament!

    And there is the only problem and the only fault:

    Brexit with the negotiated deal ... No! No majority of votes!
    Breed with a no-deal ... No! No majority of votes!

    New elections, the only one in Parliament is agreed to reach a majority? ... no! Declined!
    A 2nd referendum on Brexit, so Brexit Yes or no Brexit? ... No ... rejected!
    A referendum on whether Brexit refused with deal or with no-deal ... No .... rejected!

    No new PM will change that! And that's exactly why all parties in parliament have got a kick in the butt in the EU parliamentary elections! The reigning Torries ranked 10th among 10% of votes !!!

    But of course that's the fault of the EU for the Brexeteers!

    *One
    Frankly, I could not agree more.

    I'm a Yank who lived/worked in Britain. I am grateful for the fact that I was able to learn proper-English. (Which we stopped teaching in the US a long, long time ago. TV killed the English language in the US.)

    But, I am also sadly surprised with the overwhelming disgust that Brexiteers feel towards membership in the EU. Just what the hell do they think will happen economically.

    That the remaining EU-countries are going to come running to GB's doors to boost exports? I doubt that result, quite frankly!

    What the hell did the EU do to Britain to have instigated that profound disgust for an historic economic-consolidation that has proven amply its ability to enhance More Net Income per person? Which is the sine-qua-non for judging any political system!

    I remain befuddled. I thought the Brits were more sensible as a nation ...

    *One factoid: The French government has said clearly that more Brits who have lived in France for a considerable period of time are requesting French nationality than any other time! (I wonder if THEY voted for Brexit! ;^)

    The same is given in Germany too ... thousands of Brits living here have asked to become German citizen or are still now ... and I know personally 3 of them!

    f you look at all the lies of the Brexit people with whom you justify Brexit .... all the ignorance about the EU, the institutions and bodies of the EU, what their work is and, in short, who in the EU is saying and what tasks has ... then it is already breathtaking!
    And it's really evil when British stubbornness sets in on them and they do not give a **** about people like Farage having them extremely docile because of the heightened hatred for the EU.
    Just take this idiotic red Brexit bus back then, where the slogan was that you pay £ 370 million to the EU each week, money that would be better spent on your own NHS. You remember? A total lie ....
    Fact: out of the 370 million, 66% = 231 million go back to London since the 1980's when Thatcher prevailed. And how much of those 231 million go into the NHS? Ehm ... on the part of Brexit people to this a "no comment", because then they ridicule themselves with the actual truth!
