Exactly, it is a great saying . I like this forum, got used to it and I like the people from the Convention quite a lot, whom I exchange private messages with, etc. If I am not around, then I genuinely don't have time, cause regardless of liking this forum — I don't like it enough to do it at the expense of my job, or time with my family or friends. Usually post when watching telly or on the train, or when kids are playing video games, etc. Like for example today it is my day off and I should be having a lie in, but I can't — cause there are workmen in our house (we have some repairs going on in the kitchen and dining room) and they arrive at the crack of dawn and create a lot of noise. Once my kids and hubby go to school and work, I will try to go back to sleep again — probably in my oldest's ' bedroom — it is two floors up from the kitchen, so there won't be as much noise there. I need to rest as planning to run for at least 12 miles this afternoon.

Well, this is what she says:

She emerged from the marathon cabinet meeting on Wednesday evening and declared the choice before the UK to be clear.

«This deal, which delivers on the vote of the referendum, which brings back control of our money, laws and borders, ends free movement, protects jobs, security and our Union; or leave with no deal, or no Brexit at all.»

The EU said the agreement marked «decisive progress», clearing the way for a special summit of EU leaders to approve it.


I asked John just half an hour ago — he is always right about everything, he is just very smart — and he says she is full of shit, she bodged it up so badly, it would have been much better to stay in the EU. It was always about either a proper clean break from the EU (bad in the short term, that was to be expected — she didn't have the guts to do that). or — staying in. It is a long subject, that I don't want to go into — but she just gave up all the benefits of staying in (control, rebates, etc.) and gonna pay a shit load of public money for the arrangement which is not in the national interest and which is not that far off of what people voted against in the first place. My husband says that she is a psychopath, who wants to cling on to power at all costs. Like — I don't care if I wreck the country, as long as I am still Prime Minister. He said she was the same when she was Home Secretary — she wrecked the police force during the time, literally gutted it of all the funds (that is why we are having a crime wave now) and opened the door to all possible immigration, making it short of ridiculous — the highest numbers ever, but she was the longest serving Home Secretary in the history of the UK (usually — Ministers don't stay in that job for long, as it is the hardest job in the Cabinet and they invariably ef up and leave the post and someone else then comes along to try to do a better job).
I am watching the news right now and even the Times is coming out this morning with the headline like «Bad deal — that splits the Cabinet, the nation, the country, etc.». I hope it won't go through Parliament. But I hope it won't be Hard Brexit either. Ironically enough — the best thing right now would be a second Referendum and if people voted to stay in.

P. S. To be fair, people here are always judgemental about the Government and very critical. The situation is not as bad as he makes out in reality, it is just here people overdramatize things a lot, make it sound a lot more awful than it actually is — the press is the same in that respect, always negative. Cause compared to two years ago — apart from the pound falling slightly against the Euro and people putting some decisions on hold until the Brexit outcome — nothing in one's day to day life actually changed that much. And John is talking of some massive crime wave, but I personally didn't notice that something is that much different from how it was before. It is just that the mentality of people here is to make things sound worse than they actually are — quite the opposite from the Russian mentality — where they praise everything regardless. So I take everything that the English say «with a pinch of salt».

I am still not sleeping, watching the telly, all my mates are as well — we are what's upping each other and that —

This is what she is saying now — «Accept it, it is not final, we will change it later», what a twat (cunt) really. Sorry to say.

Brexit deal latest news: Four ministers quit the Government over Theresa May's agreement

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/11/15/...

Resignation watch: Cabinet ministers who've resigned over the Brexit deal - and who could still go


https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/11/15/resi...

In the Telegraph they are allready «replacing» Theresa May

Who could replace Theresa May as Tory leader? Here are the runners and riders

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/11/15/...

To be honest — if the deal doesn't go through — then Hard Brexit — bad, if it does go through — that'll be the end of the Tory Party in this country — the Party that has always defined this country, Churchill and so on- people will never vote for it again. Now Jeremy Hunt announced he will be the next one resigning. We are watching resignations coming in - in droves at the moment.

So many resignations. May I call it «министропад» (по аналогии с листопадом) ? )

What a mess. I heard MPs laughed at May when she said that her deal will help the UK to leave EU in a proper way. Is it true?

Of course you may, knock yourself out.

<nobr>P. s.</nobr>

knock yourself out
Equivalent to «Go for it»
«Can I have a piece of your burrito?»
«Knock yourself out."

Shouted her down, booed, her and laughed at her, yeah. Not that it is having any effect at all. She doesn't listen to anyone. Today she came up with new appointments to the Cabinet, including appointing the New Brexit Secretary, which is a non job as long as she is PM. Why? Because Raab said that she never listened to his advice or opinion, one was pretty much made to follow her lead and not ask any questions.
Right now the Tories are submitting letters to the 1922 Committee to trigger the vote of no confidence in her. 48 letters are required to trigger the vote, 23 MPs already submitted theirs and they reckon there will be enough letters in by early next week and the Vote of No Confidence is deemed highly likely.
But so far she has proved indestructible, very resilient. A bit like a rat or a cockroach.. Sometimes I think she is like some sort of Devil or something. Sad really.
But to be fair — it is such a hard job to deliver Brexit — I wouldn't like to be in her shoes right now at all. And I suspect that people like Boris and JRM are also cowards, they could have put forward their names for the Tory Leadership in the very beginning of the Brexit negotiation process, but they didn't, cause everyone understands that in these negotiations one can't do right for doing wrong. There is no Brexit which would satisfy everyone, It is a lose / lose scenario — at least in the short term (if done properly that is). Instead they have been rebelling and undermining and criticizing her all along. I just don't know, so sick of it all to be honest. Today we have been talking about it all day at work and how dreadful and messy it has all become.

It is not available anymore period. Someone deleted it from Youtube, but it is not that important anymore. Here is May this morning answering people's direct questions on LBC — watch this one instead.



God, she is so false and unpleasant sounding. What on Earth did Britain do wrong to get such an awful Prime Minister?
