Finally some constructive political leadership emanating from the UK

Khan said Britain was now facing either a bad deal or a no-deal Brexit, both of which were “incredibly risky.”

If the Brits were to choose to go with an "approval" referendum for whatever deal gets hammered out, they would still be facing either a bad deal (if it's indeed bad) or no deal.

The UK already served its notice of resignation.  There's no reason to believe that if the UK decides it's unhappy with the proposed severance package then its job is waiting for it like none of this ever happened.

And honestly, it's not the EU's problem that the UK spent the last two whole years since voting "leave" to fight internally, moan and groan, point fingers, resign, try to propose Plan B through Plan T for how to land butter side up, and act like everything since June 2016 has been a "practice round" that doesn't really count.

They've got about six months now to get down to business, and it counts.

George Galloway's Opening Monologue,  21 Sept, 2018 (and vid)


Galloway rips into Salzburg, Theresa May and the EU. 'This country is adrift on an ocean of incompetence, entirely bereft of leadership and a General Election is inescapable."


The Skripal Affair - Another False Flag  in NATO Litany to Criminalize Russia


"If we start from a premise which understands that Britain and its NATO allies are capable of mounting false flag events in Syria with chemical weapons, then it is entirely possible that British secret services carried out a similar propaganda stunt in England with regard to former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal..."


The Neoliberal Order is Dying. Time to Wake Up  -  by Jonathan Cook


"The neoliberal order goes unquestioned - presumed against the evidence of history, to be permanent, fixed, unchallengeable...The story of Britain's Labour Party is a case in point."

Brexit according to at least some Brits is about money Some Brits feel they are paying more into the EC than they are getting out of it


More fundamentally they wish to be governed by politicians at least theoretically accountable to themselves not faceless and unaccountable Eurocrats in Brussels. 


Actually most Brits are opposed to Brexit 

Whether they will get a chance to express that in another referendum is the question and that seems unlikely at the present time


Actually, they already had a referendum to determine the question and remain lost.


Brexit Leavers Are Out in the Cold and Totally Misrepresented


"Protests against the IMF and WTO used to be extremely popular on the left, but the EU - which has an identical neoliberal agenda - is not getting misguided support. The idea that you might vote to leave because of the EU's neoliberal agenda got buried, and with it  the plight of those who suffered most from it when they took the opportunity to protest.

The EU elite, closely associated with bankers, financiers and those associated with the 2008 financial crash, are using a poisoned cocktail of 'suppression and mainly deception,' according to Takis Fotopoulos in his article 'The Systematic Efforts of the Transnational Elite to Crush the Brexit Revolution.' He notes that the left, long associated with 'societies victims, has clearly changed sides in the globalisation era."


Breaking Brexit: England's Difficulty is Ireland's Opportunity   -  by George Galloway


"The chickens of Britain's Irish problem are coming home to roost and making a 'hard Brexit' whereby the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal - a frightening possibility to London and what is left of the 'big capital'..."


The Oligarchs Behind the 'Humanitarian' Regime Change Network Now Exploiting Jo Cox's Death To Push For UK Labour Split


"Only by masking their otherwise unpopular policies in the cloak of Jo Cox's tragedy, and humanity's natural empathy for good samaritans and the downtrodden, has this small group of powerful individuals been able to launder disastrous wars and military adventurism as 'the right thing to do."

And as always in such dirty business there is an 'ugly Canadian' involved. Who is Jeffrey Skoll?
