    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Perhaps. The fact the tory quislings bottled it in the face of a possible vote of confidence/general election, putting party before country, has put the anti Brexit fight in parliament on the back foot somewhat. You have to assume those people would vote for a deal as they didn't your with their conscience last time. The fact is that parliamentarians don't really support Brexit though. They're still doing it because they have to do it. If no deal looks likely (and let's be honest may will try to conceded everything to avoid that so long as she can spin the concessions as not concessions) then it'll be hard for mps to accept. Besides, despite remainer moaning, we've embarked on two years of negotiations. Leavers have had two years to give us a viable plan and have failed. Vote leave campaigned of a ticket of getting a good deal, not no deal. Most Brexiters were talking about the Norway option during the campaign but now claim that would be something in opposition to the will of the people. If public opinion significantly shifts against Brexit, is it genuinely democratic to force it through without the public having the right to confirm it's wishes?

    This could all get quite interesting if the labour policy ends up changing. If public support for no deal, and Brexit in general, continues to wane, it'll really put the Tories in a difficult position when the rest of parliament is calling for a second referendum.

    I'm sure it is hyperbole but it's still footsteps in the wrong direction. The gulf between what vote leave said then and what Brexiters call for now is stark.

    True, but jobs is jobs: The London Stock Exchange, which owns the London-based LCH clearing house, has warned that the loss of euro clearing could cost the City 100,000 jobs. Its shares had fallen by more than 1% in early trading in the wake of Deutsche Bank’s announcement. A spokeswoman for Eurex said it had a market share of 8% of euro clearing, up from virtually zero a year ago.

    Questions Thread

    It probably depends what you currently earn. And what you do. And what the salary was advertised as. At £15k ask for £3k, at £25k ask for £4k, at £35k ask for £5k imo. Generally, if you are the preferred candidate the manager will want to get you in and to have a happy staff member. They'll have an idea of what they want to pay but if you explain that you would expect a small bump in salary from the move alone but need to take account of increased costs you should be able to secure a rise.

    I think it's a very bad idea for the public to be led to believe that tech might bail us out. If some miracle can be done, great, but it should be talked about as virtually impossible. Mankind must urgently get away from fossil fuel and into green energy. It must do so asap. It is often those that don't care about the climate that try to put us off this path by talking about tech solutions publicly.

    Sky have been running a poll on Brexit. Given it has 12m customers and they do weight scoring etc their polls generally give similar results to other pollsters. Seems like we might be seeing public support for Brexit waning significantly: Sky Data has released the results of an extensive poll on Brexit. Its headline figure is that 78% of people think the government is doing a bad job of negotiating Brexit, up 23 points from when Sky last polled on this in March. This reflects the findings of many other polls suggesting confidence in how the government is handling Brexit is falling, including ours last week. Here are some of the other poll findings. 65% of people think the government will get a bad Brexit deal, the poll suggests - up 15 points from March. Amongst leave voters, 51% think the government will get a bad deal. People are increasingly likely to think that Brexit will be bad for the economy (52%), the country generally (51%) and themselves personally (42%), the poll suggests. Half the public support a three-option referendum on the final deal, leaving with no deal, or staying in, the poll suggests. Some 40% of people opposed the idea. With a preferential voting system, staying in would win, the poll suggests. https://news.sky.com/story/public-opinion-is-shifting-sharply-against-brexit-sky-data-poll-reveals-11453220

    I've always thought we should have a sticky thread on here where members with their own businesses can sell business and receive reviews in return. Not sure if that would appeal to self employed members or not?

    No. This isn't fact, it's compete balls from somebody who clearly doesn't have the foggiest how the economy works.
