It's funny Jim, feels like the end-game is close at hand, but so little news is coming out at the moment. Could go either way. I just can't call it. i'd hope that TM and the cabinet wouldn't be so stupid as to allow a Hard Brexit, but TM is nothing if not stubborn. I deliberately use the word stubborn as opposed to resolute. We should know in the next week or two.

Food for thought and from the Daily Mail no less.

No smoke without fire Hudswell and it wasn't from one of those leftie socialist, communist type rags either.
I see they've just arrested the guy who produced the "Brexit the Movie" for fraud; he's another offshore hedge fund manager.

Ironically Jim, farmers were one of the most pro-Brexit groups at the time of the referendum. Sounds like they might be seeing the light of day at last - albeit late in the day.

Meanwhile, business activity in the UK ain't doing too good either, mainly as a consequence of Brexit: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-brit ... SKCN1NA0Z3

Wales voted Brexit, despite receiving huge EU funding - in all areas. As did the North of England - same. Regrets, I have a few .....

The latest (large) poll completed for Channel 4 for last nights programme, shows 55%/45% in favour of remain. This is massive for a poll of this kind.

I, as a fervent remainer, still cannot understand it even being that close. It is too close, at present, to have a second referendum - but I think when it moves to 60/40 - as I think it will - then we will see a Peoples Vote on any deal.

In the asme polls, a slight majority now favour Independence in Scotland and most people in the UK don't care if NI rejoins the republic.
