Not as desperate as you clinging on to the dream that the EU is going to come crashing down or that a bunch of fatcat fraudsters are going to do anything to cause that.
You really should get out more.

You can go anywhere on the internet nowadays. But it's not quite the same as actually being there. I realise you may find it "shocking" and cause you "fury and outrage" but the "rest of the world" isn't what it says on the daily express website. Sorry.

Ah, the loneliness getting to you is it?

Anyway, I thought your preferred terms were "no deal"? Perhaps you can elucidate.

It's a pity you don't understand the connection between the events of the first half of the 20th century & the shape of modern Europe.

Be careful - you can do yourself damage walking around with your eyes tightly shut.....although it's probably recommended for those with their heads tucked away where the sun don't shine.

No sure if this has been shared before, but found this snippet https://thepinprick.com/2019/04/26/t...festo-sort-of/

... .... In order to do any of that you must first have a functioning govt. !!! i.e. - one that can set a policy without changing it next week, grow a spine and tell a self-imposing bully he's not welcome in the UK, and actually keep secrets when its NSC meets ... Seen anything like that lately in the UK???????

Not the Brexit Party followers, apparently. They think UKIP's got its problems and they're all terribly troubled by them. They want nothing to do with Farage's UKIP xenophobia because he's not like that at all. He's a liberal. The Brexit Party's about a liberal Brexit, not the nasty, racist, divisive UKIP Brexit. Definitely something a bit rotten over there. Nige said so. Not even gonna take Banks' money this time - not that there was anything wrong with what he was falsely accused of (terrible, just terrible … shakes head in incredulous disbelief).

Anyway, our Nige is off in the States at the moment making some important announcements about Oldham. Apparently there are streets there where "literally on one side of the street everybody is white and on the other side of the street everybody is black. The twain never actually meet, there is no assimilation. Whole streets in Oldham of people who have lived in my country for over 30 years who don’t speak a word of the English language".

Literally

Not going your way is it, in Spain , yes a far right party has won seats, a nationalist, pro EU party, the pro EU centre left grouping will form the government.

Common logical fallacy.

Fascist are bad.

Fascists (well, some of them, others hate it) are pro-EU.

Therefore the EU is bad.

Just to continue the logical fallacy, the hard left are anti-EU - so what would you like to make of that?

Meaningless soundbites.

Hard Left, Hard Right, think of it as a circle rather that a straight line.

Some of it also comes across as a Religion, a good way of defending the illogical, a lot of this reminds me of Belief systems. Being of an atheistic tendency I often wondered of the decline in Religion has ever occurred, perhaps just a switch.

Literally
.... ... Do the black people annoy the white people by talkin' Pigeon while cookin' rice&peas everyday? Vice-versa, do the white people cause offence by rolling out of bed at 10 for the bookies and reading the daily mail?
Time for a wall; - A high thick one with lots of space for each side to paint messages on... Reminds me of bits of Los Angeles ... they don't speak English either.
. It'll be Great.... and Bigly
Do they still make car batteries there ?
