At least Scotland, NI and to an extent Wales have had delegated powers, as well as major English cities. Those are the core of the remain votes.

If Westminster bribed England outside the South East with 10's of billions of investment I'd bet they couldn't care less about Brexit.

Part of me wanted the vote to pass today just to get this pathetic mess out the way.

For me, it's basically England having a personality crisis, and blaming the EU for life's current problems. I don't think those problems will go away, meanwhile we'll have 10 years of unwrangling this Brexit mess (as the UK).

Meanwhile in the rest of the EU: “We don’t care if you are staying or leaving - just tell us what you want!”

I'm working on a news app with Mojeek, I'm using 'Brexit' as an example term for clustering of similar news results. Familiarity breeds contempt as it goes...

When my daughter is old enough and Mrs loses the charm of Scotland, think I'll push them to get back to Canada.

Apart from family, coming to the UK for me was good for schooling and the society of the UK. This Brexit mess has been very ugly and for me as really tarnished the UK's better qualities.

This, so much Like.

The problem is, England has fecked off the other countries in the union so much that you can be guaranteed that within a couple of years Scotland will have voted for independence with Wales closely following, and the inevitable referendum in Northern Ireland will have them vote to unify with Eire. These things are going to come to pass.

Maybe some good politics will come of this. The current lot are useless, all of them. They always were to be honest.

I saw today that one Conservative has been voted not confident due to his pushing for second vote.

It's plain to see the public are getting pissed off.

Interesting, but tiresome times.

Apologies, just to qualify, it's the Conservative Party having an identity crisis, and trying to drag the rest of the country over a cliff with them.

For sure, but what about the working class outside the South East... there's definitely some solid pro-Brexit opinion outside normal Tory places.

I'm genuinely curious what the fake numbers on that would be or dupes.

"However, over the weekend, May was quickly confronted with warnings that the Tory party is in no way ready for an election, in terms of money, organisation, the backing of her own MPs or support in the country.

In no uncertain terms, the prime minister has been told by senior Conservative party figures that it would risk 'annihilation' and Jeremy Corbyn being installed in No 10."

Labour would probable get a fight kicking too.

Then possibly some UKIP type might do really well.

She was stupid calling the last GE

Most of the oldies I meet at present have no idea who they would vote for. Serious dislike for both.
