But both sides have to get ‘approval’ to negotiate. Why should Trumponson keep his hand hidden when the EU have to be open?

As for ‘will of the people’, that’s a meaningless catchphrase created by the legally-proven liars of the leave campaign. Meaningless. It means nothing. Nowt. Nil. Bugger all.

PS typing on a pokey phone makes it hard to see spelling and grammatical errors, so you'll have to guess.

There is some legitimacy in the argument that parliament works under the remit of the people. Where parliament is obfuscating the will of the people, there may be a case for closing parliament.

No one can negotiate by explaining in public what taticsvthey are going to use, and how much they are prepared to give and take, which is essentially what parliament is demanding to know. You can understand why they would want to know, but it does rather destroy the negotiations.

So there is an argument to complete the negotiations, then call parliament back say what do you think. That may have been the thinking.

If MPs are failing to act the way the people have voted, then it's time for a referendum.


Now, if course, that's very simplistic, because the argument the MPs are using is that you common  people are fu  :censored ing' stupid and didn't know what you were voting for, we will save you.

As I maintain, I don't know what's best. (I actually don't think anyone else does either, which is why nothing is crystal clear and obvious). I was accused of being arrogant which I find interesting as I don't actually know enough to have a real opinion of value.

So is proroguing of parliament legitimate? I don't know. I can see the arguments from both sides, and if I were trying to negotiate, but had to explain my strategy to the party I was negotiating with, I would resist telling if I could...or fail.

What does piss me off is that many people do have clear view of where they sit and I'm a c :censored t if I don't agree with them.  How can I agree if I don't know enough??..and my suspicion is, they don't either.

That's just wrong, it's the sort of thing the yanks would do, like peanut butter and strawberry jam* sandwiches.

We get 24 doughnuts every week and there's always a couple with peanut butter fondant in them.

What about peanut butter?

That’s not a doughnut, that’s a sick and perverse fantasy of yours and yours alone.

It has to be raspberry jam first and foremost.

Strawberry I'll accept if you're feeling a bit light on your loafers  :gay.

Vanilla custard only if nothing else available and you're sugar is at emergency levels.

Apple is acceptable if you're a girl on a diet.

Chocolate is not allowed.
