May to address the nation tonight.

This sh!t is better than Netflix.
Sky interviewed Vince Cable when he came out of a cross party meeting with the PM this evening. Apparently, Corbyn chose to walk oit of the meeting because The Independent Group were there. Pathetic!

Yep, I heard that earlier. We are being failed on all sides.. he needs to go and take T. May with him.

Dominic Grieve is the MP of the day. He nailed it earlier in the HOC.

And tonight May says.. nothing.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The guest speaker on CNN a little bit ago said May's little speech was misdirected, in that it didn't address anyone who can do anything (i.e. EU countries or MPs) and instead came across as saying to the British public "It's not my fault, it's those naughty kids in parliament!"

Right. May told everyone that it wasn't her fault, it's the fault of all those dithering MPs -- they're to blame...

... and she needs the support of those dithering MPs that she just crapped on to pass her bad deal (at the third attempt).

Well done, that PM. Or is she sticking relentlessly to her corner-painting strategy?

Is this an appropriate time to use the phrase "in for a penny, in for a pound"?

She might do it though. The pressure is immense. Many will crack.

Given the quality of most papers these days I can't even tell if you are sarcastic or not :P
Any sentence that combines the words English papers and trustworthy can only be sarcasm.

‘Quit while you’re behind’ - Crowdfunder launched to refund ‘cheated’ Brexit marchers.
Aim is to raise £2,000 to give each of the remaining 40 marchers their fifty quid back!

By all accounts the meeting was a complete waste of time, perhaps he’s psychic?
