    Unless it was requested by the UK government then yes, absolutely I am. And I struggle to imagine that it would have been, seeing as it clearly reduces further the prospect of government policy (the WA) materialising. Introducing the prospect of a long delay - which I believe May explicitly ruled out when requesting the extension - amounts to nothing less than a clear manipulation of the circumstances on the EU's part in favour of such a delay, as far as I can see.

    Worrying that it is not even close to being the maddest Brexit thing this week.

    It’s not true, May would never set foot in the home of a bender.

    I think that we could all be tempted by the offer of touching Churchill's spoon in a Caddy.

    You see my problem with you here is that leave only just won, yet when Scotland rejected indy by 10% you still think the indy nutters are right and they should get another vote.
    Hypocrite, not you eh.

    Have you actually read the article or even the headline to the article?

    I was just having a bit of fun imitating our beloved MPs behaviour when they think the EU are bullying them:)

    My current position I clearly stated a few pages back.

    So let me get this straight... You are upset that the EU is giving the UK more than one option?

    You want the EU to dictate to the Uk what our one option would be?

    How does more time "clearly reduce future prospect of government policy"? Its the opposit. And April the 12th is not a "long delay". Never mind.

    Or, rather than being intransigent that they give an unhelpful Yes/No, they offered up options in response to a request.

    That really is a normal practice in life.
    And adult.
    And how a negotiation works.
    It's not trolling. It's normal.

    No deal will be a total clusterfu.ck but part of me wants it on the second ref ballot just to put this to bed properly.

    How would we do:
    Mays deal
    No deal
    Remain

    Without accusations of splitting the leave vote?

    Simple two questions:

    1) in/out
    2) if out which option, May's Deal, No Deal (could even throw in customs union)

    But then you risk no deal or Mays deal getting... say 30% of the votes and us leaving on that deal.

    My thinking is a simple first second and third preference.

    The option with the most third preferences gets ruled out straight away. Leaving the option with the most first preferences to win, if it is a tie on first preferences then second preferences come in to play.

    If anyone says it is too complicated to put a number of one, two and three in To a ballot then they don't deserve the right to vote
