May's Speech Abbreviated:

We still have nfi how we are going to do this. EU this is your fault. You sort it out. We are too lazy, workshy and fighting like high school children to work it out ourselves. Be our whipping boy.

I support democracy as long as I get to do whatever I like
I support human rights as long as I can ignore them when I like.
I support the rule of law except when it doesn't suit my agenda.

Waffle waffle.

"Creative", "Dynamic" PR for my Premiership.

Waffle waffle

We really need policing cooperation, PLEASE keep it with us. I know I threatened to withdraw this, but I'm sorry, I was wrong and a bit of a dick about this.

Gets to the point FINALLY.

"2 year transition period"

(With another time bomb lock which is still too short for IT departments. Nothing to do with the next general election, honest).

RULE BRITANNIA!

Polite Applause.

Thank you, Red. What an embarrassment. All those air fares for that??!?!

I only caught some of it, but that was enough to make me realise she wasn't going to say anything. And she still managed to be more embarrassing than the last time she made a speech.

smile cheers red

She proudly stated how respected UK Law is throughout the world.

Two points:
1. Has she forgotten about Scots Law?
2. Not it isn't, any more.

Thanks again Red

You're surprised?

I'd have been gobsmacked if it was any different.

This is what eating humble pie very, very, very slowly is going to look like.

prettybird Fri 22-Sep-17 15:16:11

"Smooth and orderly". Can we have a drinking game?! wink

BiglyBadgers Fri 22-Sep-17 15:17:50

A new thread...same old shit...sigh..

@stephenkb
Won't be Singapore, won't be Norway, won't be Canada. Why don't we just stay in the EU?

John Hyde‏@JohnHyde1982
Theresa May couldn't name a single specific concession we've secured from the EU during negotiations. #florencespeech

Law and policy‏@davidallengreen
May's speech more-or-less means that the Article 50 notification should not have been sent until at least March 2019.

Peter Foster‏@pmdfoster
Boom. "UK will honour commitments we have made"
#FlorenceSpeech

This was key language EU wanted. Word for word.

LurkingHusband Fri 22-Sep-17 15:18:32

So. Anyone here watch the speech with a Leaver ???

I'm holed up in a hospital outpatients ... No one here knew there was a speech .

Badders08 Fri 22-Sep-17 15:18:52

Does this mean an end to a hard brexit?

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Fri 22-Sep-17 15:19:39

Thanks red

I knew there wasnt going to be anything good in the speech

So I plugged in death rates and birth rates, and I think that by about 2021, Remain would win a referendum

The Tory party conference speech: explaining why free movement, payments to EU and ECJ continue until 2021.

LurkingHusband Fri 22-Sep-17 15:22:43

Why don't we just stay in the EU?

Many moons ago, somewhere in these threads, a Leaver expressed their view ...

I just want the best possible deal

To which the immediate reply came:

We had. It was called the EU ....

Badders08 Fri 22-Sep-17 15:23:55

There will be some leavers very unhappy that we aren't just walking off a cliff away

Law and policy‏@davidallengreen
Very little of this May speech engages directly with Barnier's speech yesterday.

Still huge gap.

Jennifer Rankin‏@JenniferMerode
The Tory party conference speech: explaining why free movement, payments to EU and ECJ continue until 2021.

BBC commentary is hilarious. They are pretty much saying that most of the stuff that May said, we can do WITHIN the EU or ALREADY happens.

What is the point in Brexit again?

And the EU could just say 'No' to May's one thing about wanting a transition.

IrenetheQuaint Fri 22-Sep-17 15:25:25

So are we staying in the EEA/customs union during transition? I'm still unclear.

woman11017 Fri 22-Sep-17 15:26:49

Transition to cover the life of a tory gov. Labour takes office while economy goes into tailspin.

LurkingHusband Fri 22-Sep-17 15:28:46

So are we staying in the EEA/customs union during transition? I'm still unclear.

If they'll still have us. And we abide by the ECJ ?

allegretto Fri 22-Sep-17 15:28:49

I don't think the Italians realise the live feed is still on!

Rufustherenegadereindeer1 Fri 22-Sep-17 15:31:55

Oooh what are they saying
