    So a flexible extension - do any of us have any faith that the situation will change between now and the end of October? They will just keep playing the scenario out until the deadline.
    Now that No Deal is legally off the table, nobody wants May's deal  and the EU don't want to renegotiate -  the only meaningful option left on the table is to revoke, have an election where both parties put forward a new Brexit plan that has the support of enough MPs to actually pass - and let the public decide.
    Lib Dem - no Brexit
    Tories - Brexit that works for the well off but will shaft the poor
    Labour - Brexit that will protect workers rights and jobs

    I'd say DUP voters care deeply about their citizenship of the UK and the unity of the UK as a whole.   From my experience, Brexit voters in England are often more motivated by English nationalism/sovereignty than UK/British sovereignty. 
    National identity is a bound to be a complicating factor for a Union of countries (2 of which voted against Brexit and have large pro independence minorities) trying to extract themselves from another Union of Countries.

    Interestingly the Labour guidelines for how it would tackle tax avoidance look to be less about closing the loopholes and more about increasing transparency of who is exploiting then and by how much. Makes sense, as many have pointed out that closing loopholes is just whackamole.

    I didn’t feel it was good for the community, it’s usage became a bit petty, tit for tat, created questions of why it was left which should never be the case with reactions.

    Honestly I can't be bothered to discuss with you as its all opinions without facts, and you're prepared to ignore facts presented as fake news. Enjoy your elephant, when it comes. 
    May realises the choice is between political suicide and economic suicide, or her deal which is probably both. It'll be dragged out as long as possible, because nobody wants to be the PM who caused any of the above.

    Exactly so.....people have been sold the vision that society doesn’t need to provide as we can all afford to buy whatever we need or want from our vast personal wealth......if we were all just a little bit more like Jacob R-M.....
    which of course we can’t all be. But nobody says the last bit.....

    There lays the biggest problem, not enough people wanting to contribute their fair share of the money needed to run a caring society.  Wether it be in the form of individual or corporate taxes.

    I suppose you are right in one sense. The EU have more understanding of what's going on than the government. Might be better to let them make the decisions. 
    But how does that sit with the whole "sovereignty" issue?

    Fair point (once I realised what you'd added! it's annoying that the new Quote squisher makes FTFY jokes less obvious)
    It's always been the case that the best deal for both sides (in terms of trade at least) has been no Brexit. It always defied logic that we could somehow easily get a better deal than EU membership brings. If that were do-able then every country would leave.
