Yup, and unanimously at that.
UK parliament has to be shut for 25 working days before an election. I'm not sure how many working days there is due to be between now & 9th Dec because parliament doesn't always sit on a Friday, but 25 working days would be pretty close to the 9th. Lib Dems are complaining about not wanting to give Boris time to ram through legislation after a GE has been set (even though if he had the votes he'd do that regardless).Is there a rationale to this or is it just the Lib Dems playing Nader to Corbyn's Gore?
Boris has clearly said he doesn't want a new Scottish independence referendum. If he's not careful, both Scotland and northern Ireland may dissolve back into violent and deadly disagreement. This is dangerous, but what does he care? He's still made history.I feel I am watching the UK dissolve in real time here.
The one good thing about this election is that Corbyn has finally realised that he has to go as leader of the Labour Party. Hopefully we get someone at least halfway sane in there so that there is finally a creditable alternative to the Tory madness.Also, fuck Corbyn. Any decent Labour leader would've done better.
I don't know if it was the actual "goal," per se, but once it became apparent that that's where it was heading, I sure didn't see anyone try to step in and slow it down.The goal of Brexit was to intentionally crash the economy so the ultra rich can buy everything up on the cheap.
Brexit was largely funded by a guy who literally made billions doing this in the post-USSR region. I'm sorry I can't remember his name because my googlefu is failing but I beleive he's from New Zealand if that's any help.I don't know if it was the actual "goal," per se, but once it became apparent that that's where it was heading, I sure didn't see anyone try to step in and slow it down.
My brother has a second house in France, and quite a few people in their area are Brits - it's a typical area for them to retire. Since Brexit, over the past few years, the pound has really fallen a LOT in comparison to the Euro, already making it difficult. The looming future of a no-deal Brexit is really scaring them a lot - they might be forced to leave their possessions, due to Covid might not even be able to get everything back to the UK in time, .... It's a sad and scary situation to be in.That story is funny, but I feel bad for any Brits in that situation who didn't vote for Brexit.
