    I read about this bus including Dublin in its tour, and asked why TF is it coming HERE? The campaign is to get people to lobby their “MPs to stop Brexit.”
    Eh….this is Ireland. We did not hold a referendum to exit the EU.

      If some big knob is giving you a cash money to promote their own agenda, you might as well spend it on a piss-up while the opportunity is there.

      Starting the tour in Brussels; I’m sure that they needed to convince the British eurocrats who will soon be losing their jobs that they should oppose Brexit :/

      Because as Brexit itself demonstrated you cannot bind or prohibit anyone from working to democratically change, alter or overturn previous democratic decisions. Now that would be undemocratic.

      1. Andrew

        Not when the most recent democratic decision hasn’t even been implemented or put to any reasonable test. That is not democracy. We’d have an election every month in that scenario.

        1. Nigel

          There are no time limits to this sort of thing, to demand such would be undemocratic. If the wheels come off a political project so quickly that opposition is strong enough after only a year or two to undermine its support or viability then that’s too bad. Otherwise we’d still be paying water charges. A savvier political operation might have secured assurances from their opposition to give it a chance. They didn’t bother.

            You don’t know what you’re on about. Corbyn, you know, the labour of the opposition always wanted out. Working class Labour constituencies voted leave.
            The MP’s are deliberately working against the will of their own constituents.
            What takes the biscuit is middle class Labour MP’s and unelected millionaires like Gina Miller sneering at working class voters and deriding their motivations for voting leave.
            This will not end well for Ireland despite the glee with which the certain commentators in this country seem to be taking in the impasse. Fintan O’Toole has completely lost the plot over the last two years.
            If we’re relying on the EU to look after us, people have very short memories.

          2. Nigel

            Yes Brexit is a mess and Corbyn’s useless on it, but that’s not the point. The point is it would not be undemocratic to have another referendum that offered the choice to reverse Brexit. It is, in fact, undemocratic to suggest they can’t. And since everyone agrees Brexit will be bad for Ireland, it’s even in our interests that they do.

          3. Nigel

            Of course it would. It’s just not usually a viable proposition, but Brexit was incredibly ill-conceived and badly executed, so far, leaving it vulnerable, and if the Labour leader were an actual Remainer it would probably be in train by now.

    Now these are my sort of English people.

    Clever move, they’ll get way more media coverage from here at home than travelling up and down the country.

    Ahem, s7 of the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act 1994

    “7.—(1) It shall be an offence for any person in a public place to distribute or display any writing, sign or visible representation which is threatening, abusive, insulting or obscene with intent to provoke a breach of the peace or being reckless as to whether a breach of the peace may be occasioned.

    (2) A person who is guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding £500 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months or to both.”

    Jail the fuppers for three months.

    Park it on the other side of the border or go home. There is no sympathy in Ireland for Brits now after centuries of arrogance and superiority. They have it coming. The UK is sooooo over.

    In future, to come here that’s 7 euros please – up front / join the special line and wait.

    Jeremy Corbyn has tabled a vote of no-confidence in the British prime minister Theresa May. As 117 of her own members wanted her gone last week, she’ll be gone by Christmas, and then what, a general election, more chaos?

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      “…. if she fails to set a date for a meaningful Brexit vote before Christmas”.
      Well I’m very glad to hear that for three reasons;
      1. Corbyn is actually doing something and seizing a political opportunity;
      2. No kicking the can to January – get your cabinet and your advisors working on this before everyone slopes off to their country piles and fox-hunting;
      3. Entertainment.
