    This is the point we've now reached: the brave new world of limitless possibilities we were promised were waiting for us outside the EU has shrunk to 'British Bulldog spirit'.

    We had Hong Kong before we joined the EU, and now look at it.

    So the British government couldn't be arsed claiming the money they were entitled to from individual EU countries but now find it worthwhile to claim from individual people after Brexit. A non story but a vote winner amongst the Gammons. Strap yourself in, there's an election on the way.

    I watched it the other week. Carol Cadwalladr is very enlightening.

    Cambridge analytica, had their paws all over Brexit.

    Brittany Kaiser's part in the whole affair is extremely worrying.

    What's next.

    Iíve just caught up with this thread, and Iím so annoyed that someone beat me to the Bungle joke.

    As an off topic aside, Iím going through cold turkey with Edinburgh beer prices after 10 days in Slovenia. 😱

    And Grieve, Boles, Letwin, the Greens, Plaid and SNP all willing to at least engage.

    Wtf are the Libs on? Actually, what is the point of the Libs anyway? When was the last time they achieved anything "liberal"?

    Theyíll cave under pressure. Swinson has misjudged the situation.

    The usual then. Channel 4 seems to be the only British broadcasting network that asks politicans and leaders the questions that they should all be asking them.

    As self-serving now as when they propped up Cameron. They were given a 2nd chance at the Euros and it's given them ideas way above their actual station. I can't stand the man, but if the best way of stopping the current clown in chief from hurtling us over the cliff, is to unite under Corbyn, then so be it. Swinson needs a wee reality check

    Do you think her proposal of an anti-Brexit temporary government under Harriet Harman or Ken Clarke is worse than Corbynís proposal where he leads things?

    If it's a temporary position with the sole purpose of steering the UK away from Brexit, then why does she care if it's Corbyn?

    If she wants it to be Ken Clarke so badly, then why doesn't she give up her own leadership to him, instead of expecting Corbyn to give up his position to a tory?

    The lib dems can do a direct swap, one tory leader for another.

    If any vote of no confidence fails by a margin that the Lib Dems could have influenced then Swinson will decimate their vote more than Clegg ever did in a fraction of the time. Hopefully their MPs will disobey any whip and vote with their conscience.

    You are falling for sectarian politics I suspect.

    There are many Remainers on either side who could stomach Harman or Clarke if it meant avoiding the cataclysm, but crucially what also unites them is a complete lack of trust in Corbyn.

    That mistrust is less about his competence, though he has repeatedly shown he is incompetent, it is more to do with him being happy to allow Brexit to happen in the first place.

    No, I think her proposal is much better. The problem is she has to recognise the fact that she has a much smaller amount of mpís.
    I can see why they are wary. The GE would be fought with Corbyn as PM and labour being presented as the remain party. This would kill the Lib Dem revival.
    She should not rule out Corbyn leading the temp govt but she would be mad not to get some major concessions from Labour including a non aggression pact in seats where Lib Demís are biggest challenge to the Tories or where Lib Demís have a sitting MP.
    It would take a lot of horse trading to get to a situation where the remain parties could say they have a deal but they have to start somewhere and they need to start now.

    Good analysis. My fear is the swivel heads like Seamas Milne will stick rigorously to the purity of their ideology and pull Corbynís strings in whichever way they want. Which will be Brexit in whatever form, but hey, it is ideologically pure.........

    Itís crap like that that lost the Republicans the Civil war in Spain. Strong parallels.

    The Left being unable to unite themselves against a galvanised Fascist leader.
