    Other than the Johnson being the British twin of Trump?
    Yeah, what could go wrong there?

    Today the Italian Government has fallen. Why?

    Today in the Senate

    Prime Minister Conte:
    I won't allow the League and Salvini to support his attempt to undo what we have been conqueing thoughout decades in Europe to return to sterile national identities and souverainisms.

    Salvini: I am loyal to Italy, the most beautiful country in the world and will never be loyal to the EU. You said the EU is a good fair master. I don't want a fair good master. I WANT NO MASTER


    To sum it up Salvini wants to get rid of this EU @Notanumber

    Steve is great....the truth is that the 5 stars fooled us saying they were an anti-EU force...but we have a traitor living in the Quirinal Palace who manipulates our politics to serve Brussels.

    At this point only Brexit can change things.

    Didn't know whether to post my new t-shirt here or on the Climate Change thread - I couldn't find the climate change thread, so here it is...it has taken over for this one that's over 3-years old.

    Now is as good a time as any to remind ourselves what we were told about Brexit...

    Paul Nuttal: "It will be so easy to negotiate a trade deal, and of course, it's in the European Union's interest, just as it is in ours"

    Gerard Batten "A trade deal with the EU could be sorted out in an afternoon over a cup of coffee"

    Douglas Carswell: "I think free trade would be relatively straightforward between the UK and America"

    David Davis: "You can be sure there will be a deal"

    Boris Johnson: "There is no plan for no deal because we are going to get a great deal"

    Liam Fox: "The free trade agreement that we will have to do with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history"

    Nigel Farage: "I'm reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum"


    Dominic Raab: I hadn't quite understood the full extent of this but... we are particularly reliant on the Dover-Calais crossing

    Jacob Rees-Mogg: "The UK will be a better destination for investors once we have left the EU "


    Matt Hancock said that proroguing parliament is against "everything that those men who waded onto those beaches fought and died for"

    You guys are so lucky you still have the Queen who defends the National Interest.
    We lost the king and his royal Palace was occupied by some shady carachter whom Brussels bought off.

    Once again it is the fault of those who said all along "This will happen"

    It is the fault of those who all along have tried their damnedest to make it happen instead of backing their country.

    Compare and contrast, both are the same day, one published in England, one in Scotland...

    This observer understands the mindset of the parliamentary Left and their obsession with the EU.

    Such a simple question,more people voted to leave but those who wanted to remain want moveable goalposts,I remember days playing football as a child like that but we all grow up (well not all of us obviously),it's embarrassing how our politicians are acting,they have forgotten who they serve.

    But, as you are well aware, the Leave that we were sold is nothing like the Leave we are likely to get.
    We were promised deals, trade agreements and £350m/week for NHS - all proved to be lies - it is not like a General Election when 5-years later you can kick the liars out.

    It was an attempt to reduce a complex problem to a simple question. People could only vote based on the information given - and the information given by the leave campaign was totally inaccurate when compared to the reality we are now facing.

    If you bought something from Amazon, and the product description was as inaccurate as the leave campaign, there would be no doubt that you would have the right to change your mind - despite the "buy now" button being a "simple question".

    Why should the citizens of the UK, making one of the most important choices in modern history, have less rights than somebody buying a shirt online?
