It'll be wasted as far as she's concerned if she can't keep her own MPs on board, which I reckon is going to become increasingly difficult over the coming few months.

Not only is Brexit pissing off the Europeans, but seemingly also the Japanese who've invested heavily in the UK as their unfettered gateway into the EU. A 'Hard' Brexit is certainly not going to go down very well in the land of the rising sun, Mrs May. Be warned.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has written the following open letter to the UK/EU...

http://www.mofa.go.jp/files/000185466.pdf

In light of the fact that a number of Japanese businesses, invited by
the Government in some cases, have invested actively to the UK, which was
seen to be a gateway to Europe, and have established value-chains across
Europe, we strongly request that the UK will consider this fact seriously and
respond in a responsible manner to minimise any harmful effects on these
businesses.

I'm pretty sure this was discussed in the lead up to the EU referendum. Much too sensible and fact based for the leavers to take any notice of.

Seems 'vince' is right .Headlines today in the Times says 'May pleads for support from rivals' . She desperately needs that cross party support now to stop the Brexit ship from sinking How the hardliners must hate her

Given her contempt over the past year, not only for those rivals but also for normal procedure, not to mention the Tories' contempt for their coalition partners in the previous government, how could anybody be expected to take that plea with any seriousness, let alone trust that party to honour any agreements struck?

Not a chance. Jez has been studiously avoiding being vilified for the Brexit catastrophe to come. He has (shock) figured out that the tories will self-destruct over the mess they created with their internecine back-stabbing and will simply wait for the demise until the next General Election in October.

When, at last, we'll have integrity in power.

And Corbyn told her that, if she was short of ideas on how to run the country, to read the labour manifesto !

Surly these remoaners are traitors, Brexit was voted for and is going ahead, so these people are acting to bring down the country, or at the very least damage it.

Don't we still have the death penalty for treason?

This was a referendum, not a bill passed by a one party government, where you can attempt to bring down the current government and get a new one. Something, incidentally you can't do with the EU and a good reason for leaving in the first place.

Plus there is no such thing as "hard and soft Brexit", out is out and we need to fight our opponents, the EU, with everything we have, including the UK media.

We should be talking up our country as all salesmen do when selling their goods, to a new and exciting market.

So this idiot thinks we should suffer the death penalty for voting remain.

I mean honestly. This thread has been funny at times but this post might be one of the best.

With no explanation apart from a load of swearing who is the idiot? "Scam" as in an 8 year old...

Come on explain yourself, what is wrong with my statement, are you able to string a coherent sentence together, or are you typical of remoaners? A short attention span, that you can only read and recite headlines?

I know. I should divorce my foreign wife and disown my foreign children to return to Blessed Blighty to bask in the sunshine of fish and chips and rivers of bitter and ........ Can't have my "foreign" family polluting the Great British Genepool now can we?
The thing is I would expect some people to think that is a proper and decent course of action.

This guy along with a few others are unbelievable. The problem is that I think a lot of people are like this though perhaps don't say it out loud.

What fad was popular only a year ago, but now it seems like something from a long bygone era. Like the bloke who will only play music from LP records and cassettes, because it's "better".
