0 Have your say Changing your mind to changing circumstances is a normal reaction, says Tommy Shepherd, so why not revoke Article 50 now? So we’re not leaving the European Union tomorrow after all. As the Brexiters cancel their street parties and put away the bunting the rest of us should think carefully about what to do with the reprieve.This week started with parliament voting to take control of the process from government, a move without precedent. In truth, we were forced into it. What else can you do when faced with a government welded to a deal nobody wants and unwilling to change one dot or comma? Someone has to find a route to a majority. So now we’re starting to see what a majority of MPs can agree on, a process that should have started two-and-a-half years ago.Instead, Theresa May hijacked the Brexit referendum result for her own ends. She ignored any view outside of her own minority governing party – save for the extremists in the … [Read more...] about Brexit: EU elections are chance to show UK wants to Remain – Tommy Sheppard

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz says he is in favour of a short Brexit extension in order to avoid the UK leaving without a deal and taking part in EU elections. "I think that an extension is better than a no-deal scenario and so for that reason she (British Prime Minister Theresa May) has our support, but we will have to discuss today how long the suspension should be," Kurz told reporters as he arrived at a meeting of EU leaders in the European People's Party — the EU's parliament largest group. "I think it is important that the UK does not take part in the European elections and it's also necessary to make clear how we can solve the open issues because a suspension is one step but the necessary second step is to find a way how to guarantee that we have not a no-deal scenario but a well-organised Brexit," he added. For the Austrian leader, the UK taking part in the upcoming European Parliament elections would be "absurd". "They are going to leave Europe and if somebody wants … [Read more...] about UK taking part in EU elections would be ‘absurd’, says Austria’s Kurz
Hundreds of jobs are expected to go at Nissan, trade deals worth billions could be axed, and experts are warning the North East will be the worst hit region. And, a No Deal Brexit is becoming a greater reality as the UK prepares to leave the European Union on March 29. When the UK leaves, forecasters are warning the North East's economy could shrink by 6.5% over the next 15 years - and up to 11% in the event of 'no-deal' exit. If there's no deal, 70 international trade deals will be gone , which includes Turkey where the North East exports food worth £480 million to each year, and Norway, which £180m of goods are exported to each year. Nissan announced it would be moving production of its X-Trail model to Japan, saying it was a business decision but also that the UK's unknown relationship with the EU was proving a hindrance. The UK and EU did reach a Brexit deal, but it was voted down in the House of Commons. Downing Street announced ministers were "ramping up" plans … [Read more...] about 21 ways you’ll be affected if UK leaves EU with no deal
SO – with every long day that passes the UK is shunted closer and closer to a Brexit deal which is a travesty of what we meant by “Leave”. Or towards a second referendum. Or a delay in leaving altogether. You can tell what side the House of Commons is on, can’t you? The one thing slipping away from our grasp is “No Deal”. They won’t let it happen. The Commons would vote against that by a majority of two to one. And yet that is what we meant when we voted Leave. For months now the Remainer politicians and the BBC have been telling us about all sorts of disasters that will befall us if we leave with no deal. The Beeb even managed to dig up a kebab shop owner in Gloucester who reckons people aren’t buying his kebabs because they fear a No Deal Brexit. Yeah, I can just imagine. You’re walking along and think: “Oooh, I really fancy a nice doner kebab. Bit of chilli sauce and a crisp salad. But hang on a minute, what about Brexit? … [Read more...] about Remainers warn of kebab shortages and incurable STDs after a No Deal but it’s all lies – they just want to stop Brexit
