And what are the lesbians thinking? Will there still be easy scissoring in Lesbos?
Well gay Brexiteers, is it all still fucked? But not in a good way? Part 2

Why does a tread on Brexit have an intro about lesbians?

Thread title is “gays”?
An invitation to hysteria?

My bet is that Brexit won’t actually happen. The wealthy and powerful British governing class doesn’t want it, and neither does the EU. The parliament is just going through the motions to appease the 54% of the electorate that voted to leave the EU—but even the ‘Leave’ supporters continue to vote down any and every “deal”, because they really don’t want to leave.
The EU doesn’t want Britain the leave either because it’s the second largest economy within the bloc, but more importantly, because if the EU did provide favorable exit terms to Britain, it would destabilize the EU’s control over its member nations, and possibly set off a nationalist domino effect that could see other prosperous nations, like France, also vote on exit referendums.
May herself doesn’t want to leave EU. If her third (and final) attempt at getting enough parliamentary votes for a divorce from the EU fails again (which it will), then there will be an indefinite extension. Which will then likely lead to another Leave or Remain referendum, this time with the result that the governing elite actually wanted—to remain within the EU.
So much for democracy. But then again, leaving the EU would be devastating to the UK’s long term economic and geopolitical prospects. Already, more than $1 trillion worth of jobs and services have left London, never to return again. Brexit has been a huge embarrassment to Britain, and this whole debacle serves as a warning to any other countries who might be contemplating invoking Article 50.

You couldn't be more wrong on this if you tried. Newsflash: the governing elite wants to exit the EU without a deal so they can thoroughly dismantle the remaining social safety net, repeal any and all kind of regulation governing the environment and workers' rights, and sell off the NHS. That's exactly why they're begging Italy or Poland to block the extension so they crash out with no deal.
Also, the UK has gone through so much trouble at this point that the anti-EU sentiment has been dying out across the EU, from France to Italy. Ain't nobody leaving after this circus.

Even if Brexit does not take place, the UK will have trouble attracting inward investment for a very long time because the UK will be regarded as suspect, with Brexitism simmering just below the surface, ready to boil over again.

R7 Also, Japan and the EU have a new FTA in place. It only makes business sense for the Japanese to manufacture their cars meant for the European market on the continent after Brexit, and not in the UK. They have royally screwed themselves.

Sunderland (Nissanland) voting for Brexit was like turkeys voting for Christmas.

R6, what are you smoking? The vote to crash out of the EU failed to pass last week. The majority of British elected officials did not/do not want Brexit, and the consensus is that exiting the EU, deal and especially no deal, will have further deleterious long term repercussions for Britain both economically, militarily.
Britain is going to further isolate itsekf if they allow Huawei to build their 5G networks. Because that will alienate their closest ally, the US, who will severely restrict classified information if there’s a threat that the Chinese could be spying.

I'm talking about the ERG group of the Tory party that is trying to crash out without a deal, or alternatively accept the deal and then use the Vienna Convention to renege on it.
The real question is, what are [italic]you[/italic] smoking?

They voted by 312 to 308 to reject a no-deal Brexit, so it was really close

After Brexit, Scotland will declare its independence and the UK will be relieved of its permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

R5, technically, the vote for Brexit was under 52% - not 54%.

Dream on, R5. Not only is Brexit happening but the UK will crash out without a deal. The vote last week meant nothing.

Bercow has blocked further meaningful votes on the same deal that's already been rejected. Good for him.

so that's good, right? he's forcing the issue to "vote for managed brexit or stay in EEA for 20 more months"?

Agreed, r18, but what the fuck happens now??? Someone has just been reported by the BBC as saying that the queen might go for the “nuclear option” and end the current parliamentary session to allow May to represent the same deal to the same parliamentarians. That would set an extremely dangerous precedent, and I wouldn’t normally imagine ERII would agree to this harebrained scheme, but at the moment nothing seems to be beyond the pale...
