Meanwhile the President of the US had to declare that he is not, in fact, a Russian agent.

... with the best part being that he waffled and never actually denied it.


Theresa May should just be out without needing a no confidence vote, imo.

he forgot to deny it when asked the question by Fox on Sunday. he issued a statement on monday that actually included a denial. better late than never? *snort*

The worst thing is she'll easily pass the no confidence motion. There's some severe cognitive dissonance going on to say "We completely reject the deal you've spent 2 years working on" and then "We are confident you'll fix this in 70 days"

There is a difference between saying the deal you have is not good enough (sounds like many different factions not happy for different reasons) but Tories wonít say, letís just help make Corbyn pm

*Mans the Dutch beaches to repel fleeing Britons*

It's a bloody shambles. tbh it really surprised me the Brits voted for Brexit. But there we are.

But this really like a 'Holy Fucking Shit...WTF do we fucking do now?'  Type of moment.

Yes. Very much this.

However, it is unlikely that the Government will lose the vote of no confidence. Which is hilarious, given there were 48 letters before Christmas from Tory MPs stating they had no confidence in May but, being in power matters more to the Tories than anything else.

As things stand, the UK is now stuck between two extremes of Remain and a No-Deal leave, both of which are actually shitty scenarios (although No Deal is clearly economically worse) and the political and social fall out will be extreme.

Whatever scenario we get, it remains fact that the actual sociopolitical causes of why people voted leave, will continue to be unaddressed. Because the causes of those problems never were the EU.

Maybe Britain should build a wall somewhere.  Idiots here think that will solve everything.

As for a wall I think it should be built in the middle of the channel.

Like watching a very slow train accident. Terrible, yet impossible to ignore.

John Oliver's comments on Brexit have been great. But skip the boyband. Please.

Video not available in my country. :(

Although soon, neither will the internet, food, medical supplies and we're already out of an informed electorate.

Yeah...he talked that you guys needed to have a different version because, I guess, there is a UK law that prohibits showing the parliament in a comedy show.

I am sure it contains nothing new to you but it was hysterical.

I read that May is now trying to get a three month extension.

She's not trying to get an extension yet but, MPs in her own party are putting pressure on her to rule out a no-deal Brexit.
