A small segment of Question Time has just summed up the Brexit debates that we've witnessed across the country. A professor in EU law from Cambridge University makes a detailed and informed point, while radio shock jock Julia Hartley-Brewer sits there shaking her head.

Looks like she may not get the numbers after all if this was her last, best gambit.

 May’s hopes of winning over Eurosceptics and the DUP to back her deal have been dealt a fresh blow after the “Star Chamber” of Brexiteer lawyers rejected a further attempt to allay their concerns about the backstop. 

 

The group of lawyers, led by veteran Tory Sir Bill Cash, said the suggestion that the UK could use the Vienna Convention - the international treaty that lays down the rules about treaties - to unilaterally pull out of the backstop was “badly misconceived”. 

 

The panel of lawyers, which significantly also includes DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds, rejected supplementary legal advice from Attorney General Geoffrey Cox. 

 

The Attorney General’s advice hinges on Article 62 of the Vienna Convention, which says that if there has been “a fundamental change of circumstances” following the conclusion of a treaty “which was not foreseen by the parties”, then the countries involved would be allowed to withdraw from it. 

 

But the Brexit-backing lawyers said “given the high burden that a state must meet to use it, and given the extreme reluctance of international courts and tribunals to accept it” the Vienna Convention route “supplies no assurance whatsoever that the UK could terminate the Withdrawal Agreement in a lawful manner”.

This fucking cunt getting a dose of Brexit reality. Couldn't happen to nice fella.

 

 

Profits at UK pub chain JD Wetherspoon fell 19% in the six months to the end of January.

It blamed a rise in labour costs, interest payments, utility bills, repairs and depreciation for the fall.

Its chairman, Brexit supporter Tim Martin, who generally accompanies results announcements with his colourful opinions, expressed concern that Brexit would be reversed.

This, he said, would have "adverse economic consequences".

Listening to an Austrian Minister talking about the extension short or long etc. Very civil, restrained and cooperative, got me thinking.

 

 

Imagine this was the Germans or French carrying on like we have. The Mail would want us to invade or at least bin them off without any compromise. Dirty foreign bastards.

The EU would terminate Britain’s membership of the bloc on July 1, if the country has not taken part in European Parliament elections, according to leaked documents outlining conditions for a delay to Brexit.

The draft document, circulated to EU ambassadors on Friday and seen by the Financial Times, makes clear Britain has to take part in the May 23-26 votes if it seeks an extension of more than three months.

Britain’s membership extension beyond March 29 is to be debated by EU leaders at a summit next week and European capitals disagree over the terms and length of any delay. Any decision requires the unanimous consent of 27 remaining EU leaders and the UK.

The document makes clear the legal constraints on the EU over a possible extension. It warns that EU institutions would “cease being able to operate in a secure legal context” if Britain remains in the EU after July 1 without having held elections.

The legal conclusion could help Theresa May in her efforts to persuade recalcitrant Brexiters to back her withdrawal agreement in a third vote on the deal in the House of Commons next week.

The British prime minister has warned that if her deal is rejected, the UK will need to seek a much longer extension — which would force her Conservative party into an election campaign it has no desire to fight.

“No extension should be granted beyond July 1 unless the European Parliament elections are held at the mandatory date,” the paper said. “If they are not held, the extension should terminate its effects before the European Parliament meets on 2 July.”

And here in their natural habitat of mid-year Christmas lights and gas BBQs, we find the species Brexitus Cunticus. This specimen is, we think, female. You can tell this lesser spotted Cunticus is a female from her British Antlers and nicotine yellow hair.

This belongs on here rather than the funny picture thread but I somehow couldn't find it earlier so now you have to cope with the same post twice.

https://newsthump.com/2019/03/16/nigel-farages-brexit-march-proves-nation-cares-more-about-brackley-town-vs-curzon-ashton-than-brexit/?fbclid=IwAR2pYfX2x51c2QS7QMC5OhTcGFuxaQwVkpx1PiRSyeHZJWR6X8GuiiLgVxY

 

The people of Britain have spoken and made it clear that the result of Brackley Town vs Curzon Ashton is twice as important to them than any potential threat to Brexit.

 

Despite Nigel Farage’s march managing to secure the support and attendance of 0.0003% of the population, more than twice as many people attended Brackley’s home match against Curzon Ashton in the National League North division, with 450 turning out to show important it was.

 

Brackley secured a 2-0 victory in front of 250 more people than attended the start of Nigel Farage’s march, in the starkest illustration so far that Brexit no longer matters to anyone.

 

Farage himself spoke of the numbers, telling reporters, “What you have to remember is there would have been a million people here – like there was for the people’s vote march in London – if only the roads hadn’t been so busy due to immigration.

 

“Hard-working Brits who wanted to come out and support us today were unable to do so because of the Bulgarian plumber round the corner who keeps stealing their petrol money.

 

“Whereas the million people who turned up to support a people’s vote in London all had their petrol money paid for by George Soros, so it was easy for them.”

 

Reporters sent to cover the Brexit march said they were a little disappointed, given Nigel Farage had been pushing the event very heavily on social media.

 

As one TV reporter told us, “He said it would be the biggest protest in history, but there was a bigger queue outside my local Tesco when they made Heineken half-price just before Christmas.

 

“I’m not going to suggest that nobody cares about Brexit anymore, because that’s probably too big a leap, but people clearly don’t care what Nigel Farage says about Brexit any more.

 

“And no, of course he’s not doing the march himself. Have you learned nothing from this man in the last few years?”

Farage’s Fascists tried to cross the Tees on the Transporter Bridge today. It’s closed on Sundays. They had to walk 5 miles extra to get over the river at Newport Bridge.

Not sure they need stewards for that. And some of them look like walkers who’d mistakenly thought they’d tagged on to the local rambler’s association group.
