ParochialYokal posted a topic in Real World NewsBury North: ‘England is a total joke. We’re a laughing stock abroad’ In the foothills of the Pennines, the market town of Ramsbottom was busy with afternoon shoppers when news broke of a looming general election. Teacups clattered, eyes rolled and heads shook wearily in a town that voted 53% for leave in June 2016. .... Chingford: ‘We’ll carry on going around in circles without an election’ For 33-year-old Jamie Bourn, who works in a homewares shop in Chingford, north-east London, an election can’t come quickly enough. “I think we’ll just carry on going around in circles like we are now if we don’t have an election,” he said on Tuesday afternoon, following the announcement that Labour would back a pre-Christmas poll. Mary Jenkins, 87 – another Tory supporter who voted to leave the EU – said the debate around Brexit had been dragging on too long. “In the end it gets boring,” she said. “It has taken up a lot of my time because I live on my own and I put the TV on to see what’s on the news and you get hypnotised by it.” Her message to politicians: “Get on with it before I kick the bucket.” https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/oct/29/its-doing-my-head-in-uk-voters-sick-of-brexit-and-the-election
If it wasn’t the U.K. in 2019 I would think this was a mistake or a joke. See the jobs advertised in the Dept for Exiting the EU, notably - senior policy advisors and negotiations planning and policy advisors. Closing dates 6/7 October. So by the time we have left, do or die / dead in a ditch if we haven’t, we won’t even have recruited the staff who should be helping to plan and negotiate out exit. I can only conclude that No Deal was always the Govts plan - remember Bohnson saying it was a million to one shot a few weeks ago? No point in having negotiators in place for a deal if we were always going to leave without a deal.
