There is every chance of the government folding. It is very weak, terribly split, fractious and propped up by the UDP! It is undeniably the most fragile government we've had in decades.
On the other hand Corbyn's Labour look stronger every day and their policy on Brexit much more reassuring that the Tories. Its not saying much but compared to the disgraced Fox, the simple Davis and the self-centred buffoon Johnson Labour's Brexit team of Starmer and Gardner looks serious and trustworthy. Plus, they have a plan! They understand that leaving the single market will be disastrous for the UK's economy and in the name of protecting jobs and our industry want to stay in. And BTW, despite what the mass media say, this has always been the parties stance.
With May's supremely weak conference speech and her acceptance of Labour policies it can only be a matter of weeks before her vicious, backbiting party take her down. Then there is likely to be a bloodbath with that juvenile loose cannon Johnson taking a central part. The issue of the EU, always the Tory Party's Achilles heel could even split it.
So, personally I am becoming more hopeful every day. The odds on a better scenario for Britain is getting ever more likely.
* Tory government falls apart amongst infighting
* Labour win election but with no majority
* Labour form government with lib Dems accepting Lib Dem condition of referendum on final Brexit deal.
* The UK votes again, but this time with knowledge of what Brexit actually is and what it will mean for our country.
This final vote, truly democratic as it will be taken by an informed electorate will be seen as final by all and accepted, hopefully going some way to heal the damaging divide this issue has so clearly brought about in our population.
The icing on the cake of course would be the Tory party splitting. This would remove the greatest obstacle to the UK becoming a modern democracy that places its own citizens at the heart of its policies.
Barry. Our government has failed to guarantee the rights of EU nationals in Britain or addressed the Irish border. Many people (and the EU) believe they should before talks go any further. Currently there are millions of people who cannot plan their futures and are living in fear and insecurity. And we cannot see the bad old days of the Troubles resurge and our government's Brexit policy (and deal with the UDP) is making this much more likely.
You do know that the owner of the Express, pornographer Richard Desmond is using that excuse for a newspaper to brainwash you and your ilk and is leading you by the nose to your own poverty? The rag has always been Britain's main outlet for Fake News, well before the term was even invented.
As for money. There's no magic money tree, unless you need to pay the UDP billions to prop up your party in government. But seriously, if we leave the worlds largest single market there really will be no money.
I read your article in the Express, despite what I think of that newspaper and its owner. Are you open-minded enough to read this article by Nick Clegg in the Guardian?https://www.theguard...ries-nick-clegg
