Since we have a huge (90+ pages) Brexit thread and approaching another Brexit deadline (31 October), here is the poll.

 

So, make you predictions, ladies and gentlemen! Among other things, they (predictions) are the good test to check the adequacy of your worldview :)

If it happens on 31st October (as I increasingly suspect it will), then Labour will only have themselves to blame – for insisting on having the weakest, most dithering, and pathetic excuse for a leader in the 100-year history of their party.

I wish I didn't have to vote on the bottom one because I genuinely don't know. I voted "no" and "Yes, sometime after 2020"  The second one is a false vote because I want to see the results. 

 

I voted no because everytime I've thought brexit is about to happen it gets delayed so I've come to expect some spectacular excuse as the norm. Not saying it should happen the way it is, wish the whole thing would be called off for now.

just curious, hypothetically if there was an FSB agent in our midsts, what would said FSB agent think about Brexit  :wink:

I guessed No and No, but its a toss up at this point, no one really has any idea what is going to happen except a few people who are certain they will get whatever their preferred outcome is.

 

We either have:

 

"The end of democracy as the advisory referendum is ignored or rerun by the democratically elected parliament" 

 

Or we have:

 

"A democratic no-deal Brexit by an unelected prime minister with no majority who illegally shut down parliament because it didn't agree with him. All based on  mandate of approx 38% of the population voting for some unspecified Brexit in a referendum full of lies, and illegal campaigning"

 

​I can't speak for the Russian government, but I suspect their unofficial attitude towards brexit is: "LOL!"

If this poll had a "Don't know" section we all would have voted for that. Pretty much sums up the Brexit process.

There is always a chance that nothing much changes after brexit. If this happened it would be a huge anti-climax from the remainer side. (that's the best case scenario* as far as I can tell!)

 

But the brexiters would still hail it as a great triumph! Of course the real hardcore brexiters will hail it as a triumph if there is any non zero number of survivors. 

 

In the spirit of fairness there are plenty of hardcore remainers who would look at a doubling of UK GDP over the 10 years following brexit and call it a total disaster, but any improvement in the UK economy seems likely to come about through years of hard work in spite of brexit than because of it. 

 

 

*best case brexit scenario, obviously no brexit looks like the best option economically.

I don't think politicians in either the EU and Britain really want brexit, I think that populists used it in order to gain political power and still are using it in order to maintain it but never really intend to go along with it as they wanted. Any brexit that will occur will essentially be brexit in name, and wouldn't really differ all too much from when they were still in the EU. It just seems incredibly unlikely to me, from a political perspective, that both sides would ever let a no-deal happen, or even a hard deal. If there's money at risk as well, then nothing will definitely happen. But I'm not from Britain, and don't really follow it as closely as I do Canadian and American politics, so I'm not really sure.

In the light of the latest news, I decided to lift up this thread. As of today, the votes are:

 

Will Brexit happen on October 31, 2019?

Yes - wjfox, rennerpetey

No - joe00uk, Outlook, Maximus, Erowind, PhoenixRu, Alislaws, Zaphod

 

Will Brexit happen within next few years?

Yes, sometime in 2019-2020 - wjfox, rennerpetey

Yes, sometime after 2020 - Outlook, Erowind, Zaphod

No, will not happen at all - joe00uk, Maximus, PhoenixRu, Alislaws

 

So, WjFox and Renner were wrong in first answer but, as it seems from now, they may be right about the second one (I'm not sure they'll be happy with their victory though).
