    Journalism and the Sun rag, it can't be called a newspaper, parted ways many years ago. What they printed on their front page today, shows the depth they will sink to. Instead of telling their readers the real issues of the day. Like how our Prime Minister refused to attend a press conference with  the PM of Luxembourg, for fear of being shown up as a fraud and liar regarding how the leave negotiations are going.

    the fact we have reached a stage where it's perceived as "good" simply to have a functioning parliament, even if the stuff they are delivering is awful. At least they are delivering *something* - suggests that the article @maxjam posted is not at all wide of the mark. The scenario you describe would almost certainly be the most authoritarian right wing government we've ever seen, with people so sick of politics that we no longer even care.

    It’s just an example of what governments are capable of and what they are prepared to do and keep covered up. There are that many lies I don’t know what is true and what isn’t anymore. Some people come out with these theories are they true or not. Remain people say one thing Leave say another. What is the truth? Does anyone know or are they just theories?

    When I was younger I used to wonder why people like him hated the poor so much, now I realise its not hate, its fear.

    Watched a speech Dominic Cummings gave back in 2017. Don't ask for the link, I haven't got a clue how to do it.
    Cummings spoke about the strategies used by the leave campaign he head during the referendum. He stated  how they targeted voters with specific advertising that didn't have anything to do with the EU. That they targeted people who were feeling disenfranchised not just by the government but by anyone they deemed to have power over their lives. People who were unhappy with the long period of austerity and having to pay for the financial crash, while seeing the bankers who caused it, still living the good life.
    So the the leave campaign implied that if you voted leave, you were also getting one over the establishment.
    The funny thing is, is that the establishment, the billionaires the rich bankers, who these targeted leave voters thought they were voting against, were the very people who were bankrolling the leave campaign.
    As a lot of people are now realising, it's the billionaires and rich bankers who will be the only ones to benefit from brexit. 
     So much for, as the Americans would say, sticking it to the man.

    The irony of all the madness that our country is putting it self through. Cameron allowed a referendum to be held, so as to stop the conservative party fragmenting and tory MPs defecting to Farage's ukip party. 
    What have we now got after more than three years of this whole sorry mess? Farage and his recently formed brexit  party, the ukip party under a different name, offering to have a pact with the conservatives in the impending general election. The tories are refusing this offer at the moment but it will be interesting to see what they'll do nearer to an election if thing aren't going well for them.
    As for stopping the fragmentation of the tory party, that's gone well hasn't it.

    Labour can't really win either way, as I see it, and is why they still won't commit to Leave or Remain.
    1. "Brexit Labour" - Labour wins Leave votes back from Brexit Party but Tories win because remain Labour voters go to Lib Dems.
    2. "Remain Labour" - Leave voters go to Brexit Party and Remain vote split between Labour & Lib Dems. Tories win (on condition of a pact between them & Brexit Party)
    This is why I'd rather have a referendum before an election. I just don't like a single issue being the deciding factor in chossing the government for the next 5 years.
