I wonder what David Cameron is doing right now...

Not a good day, for Theresa May. Lost Brexit and now hit by a non-confidence. What happens now should be interesting.

She has done her bit, time to walk away and leave the mess to those who created it.

Yeah I think that's what I would do. I never liked the whole concept of dismantling Europe anyway. Especially when you have Putin looking west licking his lips while having the current potus kissing his rosy red Russky arse.

She suggested the non-confidence motion, probably is fed up and wants a way out. She is right the today's vote didn't solve anything, there is a deadline soon approaching and no direction.

I understand she will pass the vote, continuing the deadlock.

I couldn't imagine the complexity of that deal.  It's amazing how many aspects of a policy the EU is involved in.

You can't have a successful democracy if your leaders actively court idiots.

Yes that does explain what is going on in the US and Canada at the moment. Thanks for the reminder.

I have never felt closer to right-of-centre people with a brain.  I feel like there are hordes waiting to bring us down...

I'm actually becoming patriotic.  Maybe this is the last gasp of nationalism ?  Or was I wrong all along ?

Well May survived the non-confidence vote. What is plan B?

1. Same as plan A
2. Beg Europe to extend the deadline
3. Referendum 2.0
4. Fall off the cliff

You're an alt-right white supremacist colonialist.

I never did think of the EU as a threat to Russia, more so NATO, but you are right. Come to think of it maybe a strong EU is even more dangerous than NATO to Putin. That said Britain wanted out because of a reaction to its lack of control over immigration. So now what has happened. May's party turned on her. Why the betrayal. They knew exactly what they were getting with her when she ran. Why the flippity flop? I get the Scottish National Party, Liberals, Labour, even Northern Ireland's MP's of all parties being pro EU. That I get. However where are all those pro exit Tories now and why did they run?

I think you have it back asswards, the threat is from Putin toward a weakened EU. Especially when you have Trump wanting to leave NATO, all the while cozying up to his murederous dictator buddy. Well, one of a few actually, but you can figure out which one I refer to here.

They're threats to each other.  The EU is certainly a threat to Russia, as opposed to a less unified Europe.
