My impression is that the atmosphere for negotiating Brexit has been
poisoned over a lengthy period. TM has one of the hardest jobs in the
world. She is under constant crossfire, so it might be better to form a
special "task force" with the EU. A neutral and calm place is important.
Proper negotiating is about to begin, so why not...Switzerland? Just a thought.
And the parliament will regain its freedom of action.
Notre esprit ne supporte pas un degré trop
élevé de précision, et nous avons plus de joie
dans l'indéfini: de là, la puissance de l'amour et
de musique; de là, les mystagogies hallucinantes.

And that is well-deserved, because for 2 years she's basically done "nothing" and avoided finding any "consent" over Brexit with the opposition or even within her own party!  :pouting-face

Erm, you do know there is a "summit" in Brussels this week? Today, I think.
Also, May spoke to the "mother of all chancellors" yesterday (Merkel). ;)

Word from diplomatic circles has it that the EU will agree to a Brexit delay (for a few weeks at least).

Another extension until Oct 31st:
QuoteEuropean Union leaders have granted the UK a six-month extension to Brexit, after five hours of talks in Brussels.

The new deadline - 31 October - averts the prospect of the UK having to leave the EU without a deal on Friday, as MPs are still deadlocked over a deal.

European Council president Donald Tusk said his "message to British friends" was "please do not waste this time".

Theresa May, who had wanted a shorter delay, said the UK would still aim to leave the EU as soon as possible.

The UK must now hold European elections in May, or leave on 1 June without a deal.

From The Cure on Facebook:

QuoteTHE UPCOMING ELECTIONS TO THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT WILL HAPPEN IN FIVE WEEKS.

"X MILLION PEOPLE VOTED FOR PRO-EUROPEAN / PRO-REFERENDUM PARTIES... Y MILLION PEOPLE VOTED FOR PRO BREXIT / ANTI-REFERENDUM PARTIES" - THIS WILL BE THE STORY - AND IS WHY EVERY VOTE WILL COUNT.

THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION RECENTLY ANNOUNCED THAT 1 IN 3 18-34 YEAR OLDS IS STILL NOT REGISTERED TO VOTE.

WHETHER YOU WANT TO VOTE FOR A PARTY THAT SUPPORTS A CONFIRMATORY REFERENDUM GIVING THE BRITISH PEOPLE A DEMOCRATIC CHOICE BETWEEN ACCEPTING THE 'NEGOTIATED BREXIT DEAL' AND REMAINING IN THE EU, OR ONE THAT DOES NOT... YOU HAVE TO BE REGISTERED.

PLEASE REGISTER NOW. IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT...

AND PLEASE VOTE.

CHANGE THE FUTURE.

The end of May (the month) is near, near is also the end for PM May...

QuoteTheresa May has said she will quit as Conservative leader on 7 June, paving the way for a contest to decide a new prime minister.

In an emotional statement in Downing St, she said she had "done my best" to honour the 2016 EU referendum result.

It would remain a matter of "deep regret" that she had been unable to deliver Brexit, she added.

(If that was her best, I don't wanna ever know about her worst...)

This calls for a celebration, everyone raise a glass tonight because...the witch is no more.

It'll be interesting to sit back and watch who fights it out to replace her.

Let's hope there's a GE soon and Jezza gets the win.

If it'll be Boris J., things might get even worse... :1f629:
