Loaded tends to mean leading or biased towards a particular outcome.

I'm not leading anyone to make a particular prediction by the choice of words in the options. There are only 3 possibilities for where we stand on 1st November. Make a prediction or don't - it's entirely up to you.

If you don't like the phrasing, use tippex on your screen and write in your own preferred option.

Hmmm can't work out whether that is denial or deflection, Eric. Definitely qualifies as disingenuous though.

Not really. You've said it's too difficult to say with any certainty....which is kind of why the question asks for a prediction. What do you think will happen?

Independent thought, can't possibly be wrong because none us are the CEO of Hindsight Ltd so there can't be any 'told you so' about what actually happens on a certain date.

I'm sure there will be, but it'd be a bit unfair just based on what happens in 8 weeks time when it's still really, really unclear. I thought the poll was just a bit of interest based on a range of opinions on what might happen.

I may well be really incorrect predicting 'no deal' but it's not the end of the world if I'm wrong.....is it?

Default Re: On the 1st of November, we will be....

Well seeing as the 1st of November is a Friday I suspect most of us will be getting up for work. I will be hoping there is no snow on the ground or it actually snowing that morning and hoping that my bus shows up on time.

Now as I am not in the UK and we are 6 hours behind as I am drinking my cup of tea before going to work I suspect I will be reading about riots, people starving as there shortages of food, drivers complaining of massive delays at ferry ports in France, Belgium and the Netherlands for those returning to the UK, massive line ups at Heathrow for incoming passengers and possibly confusion over UK residents only lines.

I suspect that on 1 November The UK will still be in the EU as more time is needed to decide if the UK will actually be leaving the EU.

As it's a Friday, it'll be our weekend, so hopefully I'll be waking up with a tinge of a hangover and be heading to the golf course to discuss all things Brexit during a lovely round. Maybe I'll play well, maybe I won't but as we'll then be 4 hours ahead, there'll be a few hours of peace in the morning before the chaos in the UK begins.

Perhaps one creative poster could come up with a song titled On the 1st day of Brexit my Government gave to me (fill in the blank).

Between us all we can manage I think. Here's a start, swap at will!

On the twelfth day of Brexit
My government gave to me....
12 immigrants swimming
Eleven Irish backstops
Ten withdrawal agreements
NEIN we won't negotiate(s)
Eight 'take back controls'
Seven-teen million leavers
Six straight bananas
Article Fiftyyyyy
Fourty billion bill
Three Pee Emm's
Two Farage parties
And a giant, lying red bus
