@B/S - as I have said before. More information has come out in the past 26 months or so since the referendum as to what leaving the EU might actually mean. Voters are now seeing through the spin they were spun (duplicity?) by the Leave campaign back in 2016. As Dominic Raab, the Brexit Secretary, said only very recently: real livelihoods are at stake.

To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.

Before the referendum the terms "soft" and "hard" Brexit did not exist, it was just Brexit. "Soft Brexit" is something dreamt up by Remainers as a way of keeping us in the EU by the back door, just as May has proposed in her Chequers document.  It won’t wash, voters can see straight through her duplicity. We are not negotiating with the EU, they just want abject surrender from the UK.  ...

A No Deal  hard Brexit for you then? With all the consequences that such a scenario would bring? Perhaps people and businesses need to start thinking through just what that might mean. "amidst all of the technical detail, we understand that real livelihoods are at stake." https://www.gov.uk/government/news/secretary-of-state-dominic-raabs-speech-on-no-deal-planning

I suppose she can always fall back on her medical career. We haven't even left the EU yet, an exit agreement has still to be finalised, so any consequences are pure speculation. Under May's Chequers proposals we won't really be leaving at all, she must think we are all bloody stupid.  Hopefully when parliament resumes next month a serious challenge to her leadership will take place, and ...

Maybe she no longer cares. Country before party and all that. And a lot of information about the consequences of Brexit have come to light since June 2016

Wollaston needs to retain the support of the local Tory association if she wants to be the Conservative candidate at the next election.  Given her track record of teaming up with a couple of other traitorous colleagues and voting against the government on key EU withdrawal bills, I wouldn’t say that support can be guaranteed. By the way, almost without exception, the electorate in the south ...

The nearest candidate to Sarah Wollaston in the 2017 general election was the Labour candidate whose total vote was some 13,000 behind that of SW. SW had more votes cast for her than all the other candidates added together. http://electionresults.parliament.uk/election/2017-06-08/Results/Location/Constituency/Totnes

Since the 2010 general election the Lib Dems have lost 50% of their voters in this constituency, normally I would say Wrigley hasn't got a cat in hell's chance of taking back the seat but given the parlous state of the Tories and May's total surrender to Brussels I wouldn't say Morris's position is very safe.  One thing I do hope is that Sarah Wollaston in Totnes is kicked out, that would ...

It most certainly does! and here's a Tory Cllr who had something to say along similar lines http://www.middevonadvertiser.co.uk/article.cfm?id=103577&headline=Tory%20councillor%20votes%20%27in%27%20so%20that%20%20his%20grandchildren%20will%20be%20part%20of%20Europe&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2016&_ga=2.147048048.612595507.1535396029-1460230017.1532516433
