Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

DUP saying that they will take time to review (no immediate dismissal of the ‘legally binding’ changes’) is that a positive sign!?

I suppose it depends which side of the deal you're on. The DUP usually consider these things before deciding on their course of action rather than jumping in with two feet.

Someone’s confident! 

Ha, I’m not really tbh. I haven’t been confident of any political prediction for years. These ‘changes’ may turn out to nonsense but what I do know is that the Brexiteers in Parliament are looking for anything that will bring about Brexit (Mays deal) and allow them to save some face.

It depends what you view as positive.

Nothing has changed; Liddington’s answer to Hillary Benn’s question about the final arbiter makes that clear.

This is an exercise in allowing the DUP and ERG to save face by pretending that they have what they want.  Cox will effectively lie to the HoC; that’s how desperate they are.

Cox will back this, DUP and brexiteers will come on board, 30-40 Labour MPs will either back or abstain. Deal will pass.
Aye right, extension then another referendum. Nap

So we don't join the Euro.

Planes will fall out of the sky etc.

Didn't happen.

Vote to leave the E.U. and planes etc.

No it didn't happen.

Vote to leave the E.U.

No planes etc.

What did happen though is the highest employment rate in History.

Wages on the increase.

Don't listen to M.S.M. 

When the Euro started you could get 1.6 of the suckers for a pound. You haven't been able to get more than 1.2 since the Brexit referendum and it's mostly been nearer parity.

I don't know about you, but if I could be 25% better off for all I care they could put Jimmy Saville on the notes.

Oh, and we haven't left yet. Nobody is paying tariffs. No products have come into the country from very cheap producers, undercutting domestic supply. We don't have a single trade deal with a single country in the world, including the EU, and we're about to negotiate them from a weaker position. You're celebrating before the match has even started.

Are these so called "legal assurances" on the backstop going to sway anyone to vote for TM's crap deal?

I decided it was a good night to get pished, did Theresa pull a rabbit out  her arse? Does gammon rule the waves? Did Scotland bin this nonsense yet?  Did the Express and Mail ask for the ghost of Churchill to take over?

Whilst other media sources are taking an understandably cautious approach, the BBC is once again acting as a publicity machine for May. Many folk will do no more than scan the headlines and whilst the body of the report has caveats the headlines present it as a fait accompli.

Will actually be interesting what the DUP say about the "new deal" as nothing has changed. Although you would think it has going by todays newspaper headlines

These so called legal guarantees do not eliminate the risk of the backstop being in place indefinitely. Which is why the ERG, DUP and others will vote it down.

I agree with the first part, not sure about the second part.

Even if it gets past it is a very bad deal and will cause ructions in the future.

If ever there was a time for politicians to put the country's interests before party allegiances then it is now.  A crazed Theresa May has almost driven the bus over the cliff and it's now time the adults took over.  Request an extension from the EU and put May's deal to the electorate along with No Deal and Remain options.  ( Yes I know the headbangers would go crazy, with the Leave vote risking a split, but these are effectively the three choices).

Every last MP would do well to consider that if they shove May's deal over the line then it might generate some positive headlines in the scarecrow press but it would be a truly dire outcome.

What I got from the Today programme this morning is that there's nothing new, just regurgitation of what's been said before, and Rees Mogg saying it sounds like a crock of shite but if the DUP cave the ERG probably will too, and if they don't, they won't. Hardly a publicity machine for May. Meanwhile in the other media..

My point, which I thought was clear, is that not everyone actually listens to the Today programme or reads the articles; most folk don’t.  

Many just glance at the headlines and the BBC website is bad at simplifying them in May’s favour.  

I am surprised by The Daily Express position; they are genuine Brexiteers who should realise that nothing has changed.  However they are apparently willing to support any deal however bad it is.  It will be interesting to see if the DUP/ERG follow suit.

If they do vote for it i'll give it about 5 minutes before JRM is declaring parliament is soveriegn and can leave the backstop any time it chooses and the DUP are writing to the the European Court of Human RIghts.

At this point it would be mad to vote it down if you are a Brexiteer. You don't get everything you want but you completely demolish the opposition.
