Potential game-changer at the Labour conference as Keir Starmer declared (off his script, apparently) that remain is still an option. It went down famously. Of course, 35% of Labour voters who took part in the referendum voted leave, so he has a job on. Bit of a dark horse, is Keir...

Gotta be firm here. I'm going to try the following:

1. Ignore everything posted by Iains and Keith.

2. If possible, post something relevant to the thread after they've posted but without referring to any points they make.

3. Do not refer to them by name.

4. Don't make points that may appear to be responses to something they've said.

In short, cut them dead. Completely. They get what they want not by making constructive arguments but by provoking. As soon as we respond they win. They're both sick in the head. So let's try harder, eh?

Starting... NOW! :-)

As much as I don't want there to be any more referendums, I feel that one that doesn't have a remain option would be a bit pointless. One other thing. We haven't got a lot of time to set one up and get this people's vote done and dusted before March, have we? It isn't as if we're all going to agree within the next few days to have one...

Much as I agree, Steve, the consequences of that could be very mixed. On the one hand, as it happened on their shift, it would do irreparable damage to the tories. Which is good. On the other hand it could open the door for old frog face and his merry band of fascists. Which is bad.

It could of course be an opportunity for the Labour party to take real control of the situation and say what they are going to do about it in the event of an election before next March. But the vaguely pink Tories in the party are more intent on saving their own necks while joining in the right wing game of kick the Corbyn.t

I don't think the state of politics in this country of the world has ever been so bad. The establishment and rich king makers are running so scared of an educated and well informed electorate that they are trying their utmost to destroy the gains the common people have made in the last 100 years. They would rather see the world destroyed by their puppets than give away one ounce of their power.

Ok. Rant over. Who's next for the soapbox?

According to the Guardian, Jon McDonnell told the BBC "However he appeared to confirm that senior figures believe any referendum would ask voters to approve Theresa May's deal or leaving without a deal - removing any option of staying within the bloc."

The Independent reports the BBC interview in very similar terms.


This is substantially different from the BBC's report on agreeing the motion:

"But what was left out of the conference motion is as important as what went in.

The leadership had to agree that wording which restricted a future referendum to "the terms of Brexit" had to go.

This means that the party could, in theory, back a referendum that gave voters the option of remaining in the EU and not just a vote on the final deal."

It sounds like the BBC interview by Robinson had McDonnell taking the stance "that had to go".

The debate tomorrow will focus on this I think. In tactical terms, a distraction from May's difficult day today.

We neither need a 'people's vote', nor is it democratic. We have a system of Representative Democracy, with 650 MPs being very well-paid to make decisions on behalf of the electorate. What's needed is for those very well-paid MPs to do their bloody job, debate whatever ramshackle deal this bunch of incompetent spunk-trumpets manage to come up with (or, more likely, 'No Deal'), and vote according to conscience in a free vote?

That's true democracy in action, and it's precisely how the decision to leave, or not to leave, the EU should have been made in the first place.

"Farage-populism."
We've just had a visitation from this twot - he booked a hall in Dublin and held a rally (couldn't find a Biergarten) to encourage the Irish to leave Europe
Hopefully it will fall as flat as the beer he appears to drink
Ireland has been fotunate with the E.U. - it's backed new roads and has been a godsend to the arts
I have litle doubt that, without E.U. support May and her Mayflies would have hung Ireland out to dry and walked away from the implications of re-establishing the border
As it is, their indifference to the little bit of Ireland that considers itself England, they have not had a workable administration up there for nearly two years and the Foster enquiry that is taking place at present looks to drag that out for even longer
Their only purpose at present is to help Britain's dying dog over its stile

I think that anyone who finds trivial stuff such as typos or accidental duplicate posts "particularly irritating" should visit their doctor with a view to being prescribed tranquillisers. On the whole, I've found that such people have their own well-rehearsed ways of being "particularly irritating" and, not infrequently, are given to displaying semi-literate traits of their own. That's not irritating. That's highly amusing.

I'm very worried about this people's vote malarkey even though I seem to be in a small minority of Labour members. It will be down to the Tories to set up and run the thing, including setting the question, and another close vote would do nothing to settle the issue and everything to whip up a nasty brand of Farage-populism. I'd like to see Labour coming out to oppose brexit. Not much chance of that, but the ground could shift significantly within a few weeks. Who knows.

Repeat posts are just accidents. You think your post is hanging so you try again slightly prematurely. It happens to me when I've forgotten the insurance of putting it on the clipboard before submitting, so I keep trying again in panic mode for fear of losing the damn thing altogether. It honestly isn't worth commenting on. Some forums give you the chance to remove duplicates and edit typos. Not this one, so these things shouldn't be turned back on the poster. I've found without fail here that the people who take the mick out of other people's typos, etc., are guilty of all sorts of glitches and absurdities of language in their own posts. They are the only people who deserve to be ribbed. I mean, YOU don't exactly use many capital letters, eh, Pete... ;-)
