    May tried some sort which Jezza & Co poo-pooed. Quite a few yippees on here too when they were defeated each time.
    I've seen this sort of thing claimed a few times and don't understand it. May, and later Johnson, were appointed by the Queen because they could command the majority in the House that would allow them to go about the business of government. It's a tight majority but it exists - the Tories and their chums outnumber the rest.

    Unfortunately for May, she was abandoned by large numbers of her supporters when it came to voting for her deal. Most of them were fervent Brexiteers. As a result of this insurrection the natural business of government broke down, on three occasions.

    How can you possibly claim that the opposition was responsible?

      He's winding you all up.

      What the Tories (and their supporters) are desperate to do, is get out before January 2020, when the EU tax avoidance/evasion rules come into play.
      you'd have thought they could just not implement the EU rules?

      Indeed - apparently we can veto anything we don't like.

      As each day passes - and the silence on how we continue to trade after 31 Oct 19 becomes deafening - it appears tax is becoming an increasingly important factor. I genuinely do believe the Tries want us outside of the new EU Tax Directive to preserve our tax havens and turn us into an ultra-low tax economy.

      The only way to stop a flight of capital out of the UK would be to slash taxes, and with Boris promising an increase in the Higher Rate income tax threshold from £50K to £80K and Corporation tax already committed to falling from 19% to 17% next April God help those depending on social services and state handouts.

      So, if Jezza had whipped his comrades into line and they'd voted for May, would it have passed?

      its barking up the wrong tree. the sort of corporate tax avoidance the EU rules are aimed at are the Ireland and Luxembourg scenarios, where countries channel EU based business through those countries to benefit lower tax. until recently we did not have as low corporation tax, so why would this be the driver for leaving? private tax arrangements, holding assets offshore/abroad will be unchanged so im led to believe. as rules stand, until there is standardised corporation tax and other fiscal policy across EU, we are free to set our taxes lower just as Ireland does.

      The EU route is going to be higher corporate taxes, attacking tax havens and more transparency throughout. I can therefore see the attractions in profits being crystallised in the UK and / or monies moving to tax havens with UK links - all away from EU jurisdictions.

      The blind panic out there from the likes of Lord Adonis and co is unreal using things like self-harming and cliff edge, guys like him are doing far more harm for this country.
      The problem is the all the doom monger sheep believe all these t+ats.

      He is creating divide and hate and spreading it like a disease and the other remoaners are just visionless to believe it all.
      He should be stripped of his title and castrated, that's if he has any balls at all.

      I will not waste my energy any more on the remoaners, but if it comes down to us not leaving the EU on October 31st the remoaners will have caused an issue which will not subside for decades to come.

      Can they not see the damage that they are doing by trying to reverse a major decision, kids will think they can demonstrate at everything they don't deem as fair.

      The long term situation is frightening, their kids and grandkids look up to them for guidance and they are acting like teenagers.

      They are ripping the country apart, the decision was made by the PUBLIC and it MUST be delivered on October 31st.

      LEAVE means LEAVE.
      Exactly but we're dealing with an element of undemocratic arrogant people who seem to think they know more than anyone why people voted to leave the EU ,the silent majority will have the last laugh over undemocratic loons Mouldy as you rightly say LEAVE MEANS LEAVE

      As has been pointed out many times on this thread, there are approx 11% of EU laws that apply to the UK. Nobody has ever said we can veto anything and everything.
      @Pavilionaire has explained it better than I could.
