Trouble is that Mrs May managed to get through the "vote of no confidence". Now she thinks it's her "duty" to lead the UK through Brexit. A new "deal" with the EU seems unrealistic, so what now?  :1f633:
Exit from Brexit? Anyone heard any practicable solutions?

...without a second referendum UK risk a civil war.

Sounds like pure speculation to me. Never heard this from anyone living in UK or any reliable source.  :1f62e:

The prime minister’s catalogue of errors led us to this point.
Now we face paralysis and humiliation
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/jan/15/defeat-may-errors
"This has been Britain’s European story, repeatedly seeing what was a project of peace, designed to end centuries of bloodshed, as a scam designed to swindle the Brits of their money...wherever you choose the starting point, the end point is clear enough. It ends like this, in the sight of a parliament paralysed by indecision, still unable to embrace Europe – but just as unable to break away. And in the spectacle of a country lost and adrift."

The German government is prepared for a No-deal scenario (Süddeutsche). Are you surprised?
I'm not, to be honest. Let's face the truth...everything has to come to an end.

No. I knew. Been talked about for weeks.
When I said "exit from Brexit?", I was wondering what the Brits will do...

Maybe they could try with a "shutdown"? Seems to work well for Trump.  :winking_tongue

Another thing to add to the pot- medication. Seems we are running low on some medications and as a result, people are not able to get their epilepsy/pain/anti depressant medications....

So not only are we going to be driven to despair by the political climate, we aren’t going to have access to medications to prevent it.

"We are in a situation now where many of our fellow-citizens living in Spain or France do not know in just over 40 days time whether they will have any health cover," Sarah Wollaston, the Conservative chair of the House of Commons health select committee told BBC News.

More doom and gloom. Feel immensely sorry and angry that people are living with this kind of uncertainty. Mays playing Russian roulette with our lives.

Delaying is what she's done well so far...  ;)

Theresa May has promised MPs a vote on ruling out a no-deal Brexit or delaying the UK's departure, if they reject her deal next month.

Theresa May is making a statement to MPs on Brexit, amid the threat of a revolt by Remain-supporting ministers.

The prime minister promised MPs a meaningful vote on her Brexit deal by 12 March.

If they reject her deal she will allow votes on delaying Brexit and ruling out no deal, she said.
