Quoted @JuliaLarden

Rory Stewart doesn't want to revoke Article 50. He doesn't want No Deal either. He wants a sensible compromise soft Brexit between these 2 extremes. This is basically Labour's position, which we are regularly told is soooo confusing. When Rory the Tory says it, is great?

There’s absolutely no point at all to a “soft Brexit”, whatever that may mean. We continue to trade with EU but we lose any influence or voting in that trade deal & other EU policies. We gain nothing & lose a lot. #Brexit https://t.co/5cxGxDK6Km

  • @JuliaLarden Julia, like many remain voters I could see some problems with the EU. But leave have not produced a single coherent reason for leaving, & all it will do is make us worse off in most ways-economically,less powerful against eg. tech companies not paying tax, no FOM.Not one gain.

  • @TimPollard2 And that place is a newly reinvigorated and very brutal Conservative Party which will slash the remaining public services in the UK even more. Whether you are Labour, Lib-Dem or Green or even what is left of Change UK, I presume you don't want that?

  • @JuliaLarden I agree with much of what you say, but I’ll never be reconciled with leaving. It’s plain stupid, with no deal being off the scale of stupidity. Bad for UK, bad for me, bad for my children. No positives at all. I will always vote for the party that promotes remain/ rejoin.

  • @TimPollard2 Can see that you care. However, the LDs, Greens, SNP etc CANNOT deliver Remain. They will not be in power. All that does is split vote away from only party which has a hope of removing the Tories. Sorry but it's the toddler tantrum position. I want ALL the pie!. Won't share.

  • @JuliaLarden So, if I understand correctly, you feel Labour will stop or lessen the effects of #Brexit. I voted Labour in 2017 even then with doubts. Abundantly clear now that Corbyn is the wrong man at a crucial time, because he’s 100% pro- Brexit. History books will not be kind.

  • @TimPollard2 (2) I don't understand how you think that even if Corbyn was a dictator who simply ignored his Party & went hell-for-leather on a policy which the majority of the country is going to reject how on earth he would get that through Parliament. Lab has 38% of the vote in the HoC ...
