I see Trump just took a massive dump all over Theresa May. If shed any balls shed buck him out allies dont come to each others countries and tout another person as leader.

Trumps happy thoUgh hes causing chaos wherever he goes and his press conference at NATO was one big propaganda exercise... barely a word that came out of his mouth was truth.

Likelihood is him and May will come out all smiles in a few hours having had some big beautiful conversation about how their trade is going to be the biggest and best!

Exciting times people!

If the EU reject her offer as is expected, she's going to have to take it from Trump to have any chance at a trade deal. Without an EU deal, the Brits desperately desperately need a deal with the Americans. Trump knows this, so expect them to play hard ball with her like.

I agree that the leader of a foreign nation throwing favouritism to someone ready to pounce on the top job is incredibly cheeky and unheard of.

All together now... "Strong and stable, strong and stable."

Are we all still sure there's going to be a Brexit?

The head of the Confederation of British Industry said it took the UK 2 years to agree a position leaving 2 months to get a deal. Suboptimal

100%

Iain Duncan Smith said he didn't vote for a Soft Brexit. Out is Out, not halfway out. Or words to that effect.

No voter was given the option of Soft v Hard Brexit. No voter was actually told at the time what Brexit actually meant! But still there's nobody (that I've heard) complaining about that. Nobody talking about a new referendum. Corbyn is anti-EU, but he can't be seen to shout it so he's just keeping out of the way.

There'll be no new referendum. Brexit is inevitable now, and only a few months away.

Corbyn clarified his position on the EU recently where he said he was pro EU but against free trade as it drives workers wages down.
Make of that what you will.

ERG new clause:
new clause 37, which would make it unlawful for Northern Ireland to form a separate customs territory to Great Britain

All moot as Brussels won't accept it anyway! We're headed for no deal . . .

Its looking increasingly like a no deal BREXIT, and all the chaos that goes with it. 

Where does that leave us on the island of Ireland now ... no deal means a hard border, put a border there again and I envisage a massive clamour for a border poll.  The DUP and their Brexiteer cohorts are sowing the end of the Union right before our eyes.

8 and a half months or so to go. Surely there'll be some deal by then?

Best chance is if may is ousted. Far from beyond the realms of possibility. Then it would depend who got in as they could be worse. Big chance of no deal currently.

The last election was a catastrophe. May was banking on a 70+ majority to sideline the Eurosceptics. She lost her majority.
There is no deal she can push through parliament. An election wouldn't change much . The country is polarised.

And so much for the will of the people.
The only thing that might help is more time. A few more years for things to work themselves out. No deal would be suicidal

No deal being talked about a lot. I think this will increase over the coming months so it is easier to sell the deal for the soft Brexit at the last minute.

If she goes she'll be replaced by a pro Brexit looney and that'll be worse. At least she supported Remain and is trying to get as soft a Brexit as possible. Corbyn's behaviour is pretty shocking in my opinion. He should be Remain through and through as this is the only way to protect workers rights and human rights. However his lukewarm approach is making it easier for the Brexiteers. Rees Mogg mind you is a particularly abhorrent piece of work. Sooner he gets his toffee nose comeuppance the better. Him and his feckin nanny

Spot on. Labour are getting an incredibly easy ride from the critics, mostly because of the lunacy among the Tories.  Labour should be leading the charge for a reversal of the referendum and a Remain decision.
