Well yes, but I figured everyone is responding to everything so I might as well throw in my request for twitter-length posts at an opportune time.

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

What's wrong with the British that they can't get this together. Is it inbreeding?Its an island nation and they hate interracial marriage. So i'm thinking it must come from inbreeding. Are they seeing birth defects?

No we love other nations. We were built by a mixture of countries so we have no inbreeding like the british. Look at the queen and her inbred familie. They are all retarded

Unfortunately, you're just making yourself look as inbred as you claim the British to be with your error-strewn, offensive comments. I know you're trying REALLY hard to troll, but everyone else here (yes, even the British among us) is obviously a lot smarter than you and nobody is taking your bait. So to save you the mental strain of struggling to string a few words together in your next attempt to provoke, I've given you a couple of weeks to go out and breathe the fresh spring air. Or troll another forum. Enjoy your break.

1007 days later, the British still don’t know what they really want.

I don’t think anyone would want that, but the Brits probably come up with some arguments.

Maybe if the MPs voted on that, they could get to a majority of for or against?

Are they voting on anything today?

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

Ironically, Brexit has probably strengthened the EU. Remember how bad things initially looked for the EU following the result?

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

House of Commons Speaker John Bercow gave his approval to hold the third vote tomorrow after he had rejected a similar attempt last week, ruling then that May's text was essentially the same one that lawmakers had voted down.

Getting bored with popcorn, any alternative nibble foods?

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

I guess the change is that "the two previous votes were on the draft Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration on the Future Relationship; tomorrow’s vote will only be on the Withdrawal Agreement."
