Tick tick tick.

What do we think?

Yes? No?

Another week of wtf-ing at British politics.

Thanks yet again RTB!
Personally I think it's bedtime.

Checking in. Thank you RTB!

Things have been quite quiet since the rash of resignations on Thursday, but I have noted several MPs on Twitter (both Labour and Tory) arguing for another vote. I suspect it will be a busy week...

Thanks red

Thanks, red 💐

It's looking like the ERG have either bottled it, or messed up.

Can it be that the planned "next Chancellor" can't count up to 48 ?

I imagine Graham Brady not back in Westminster until tomorrow. Tomorrow evening we should know either way.

Plaice mat king. I think this thread would fill up again soon

Interesting times

Thanks RTB.

The latest polls aren't good for the Cons. Enough to make a few waivers think they better do it after all or they might lose their seat.

Evening all, thank you red I'm still catching up on the last thread 😏

Peregrina Sun 18-Nov-18 00:09:10

Wonder how far the thread will have moved when I get up tomorrow!

Is it time to start investing in spam futures, or has the canny money already moved on to SAS survival skills manuals and Mad Max style bunkers?

RedToothBrush Sun 18-Nov-18 00:21:33

Spam is no longer made in the UK...

Hazardswan Sun 18-Nov-18 00:22:50

I thought things would be quiet over the wkend but if Brady is back tomo - eek!

I'm off to look up the latest polls before bed I lead an exciting life

Thanks again red halo

place marking - I haven't even managed to get on the last two threads, they've moved so quickly.

RedToothBrush Sun 18-Nov-18 00:37:30

Google is my friend.

Apparently the last factory closed in Liverpool in 1997.

lonelyplanetmum Sun 18-Nov-18 00:44:12

Here's some spam
To thank red for her threads.

tava63 Sun 18-Nov-18 00:53:16

Thank you RTB - struggling to keep up but hugely appreciate these threads.

You can invest in futures of commodities produced anywhere,
e.g. oil, sugar, cocoa, wheat

However, it's yet another way to lose money if you don't know what you're doing

At least Marmite is made in the UK - and is something that can be stockpiled.

I looked at that list of leadership hopefuls and the word that came to mind was 'twat'. I wouldn't trust any of them to organise a piss up in a brewery, let alone run the country.

*Leave-voting MP Nadine Dorries slams May's Brexit deal because UK won’t have seats in European parliament*



< resumes banging head on desk >

“But unfortunately, the future of the country and of our relationship with Europe is at stake.
This deal gives us no voice, no votes, no MEPs, no commissioner.”

BigChocFrenzy Sun 18-Nov-18 01:11:19

If you wondered how the country ended up in this mess,
it*s because the Leave leaders are mostly fucking idiots like her, Raab, DD
