Mark Carney is the prophesy of doom....inflation 25% and unemployment accelerating. I thought he suggested this a couple of years. Sounds just a little wide of the mark....although he is pro EU
I did see some journalists commenting that after his last advice of the apocalypse for just voting out, a lot of people would ignore what he is saying now. Project Fear 3.0 was the phrase used.Mark Carney is the prophesy of doom....inflation 25% and unemployment accelerating. I thought he suggested this a couple of years.

I think the Maybot has cooked her goose. The legal advice has been blown open, and while I understand her desire to push it through, she's too stubborn to realise it's as toxic as staying or going.This is becoming hilarious! So if parliament fails to back May's plan, MPs will have a free vote on the direction of travel.
One of the options available is likely to be no Brexit. Confusion reigns. Will all MPs vote the way the majority of their electors did? Doubtful. Could MPs reverse 'the will of the people'? Possibly. An 'affront to democracy'? Depends on your view point. MPs are elected to make decisions on our behalf. Impossible for them to reflect the views of every individual elector, and how does an MP know how many constituents want in or out NOW, rather than at the time of the referendum?
David Cameron has a lot to answer for. Chickens coming home to roost and all that ....
I agree with you on this. Those in power have managed to get us into a situation where there is no good outcome and I can foresee trouble (of the financial, social and 'in the streets' types) happening whatever they eventually cobble together.I am concerned about how toxic this could become. The top could be about to blow off the whole thing and I am worried about where this could end up.
This certainly seems the most likely option. We know May doesn't have enough votes in the house at this stage to get her deal through, and with only days remaining it's difficult to see big business or public sentiment influencing enough MPs to change their minds.Let MPs decide on a 'no whip' conscience basis. We all know that Parliament is 'remain' in majority. If the MPs decided that remaining was in the best interests of the country (and apparently we could just change our minds about article 50), that would put Parliament at odds with the result of the referendum.
