Dipper

you link to an article 'Brexit's impact', but the article is completely wrong.

It goes on about t'he effects of Brexit' but we haven't left! Any consequences of actually leaving haven't happened yet.

It would be more accurate too say it is 'the effects of failing to deliver the Brexit vote'

So its a piece of misrepresentation.

Yes because the party whose stated public policy is that its going to negotiate a deal to leave the EU then campaign against it in a referendum is the one offering stability.

Do you actually read what you write? Or are you just permanently blinded by the 'Left good, Right bad' blinkers?

King Lear

"I will have such revenges on you both,
That all the world shall--I will do such things,--
What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be
The terrors of the earth. You think I'll weep
No, I'll not weep:
I have full cause of weeping; but this heart
Shall break into a hundred thousand flaws,
Or ere I'll weep. O fool, I shall go mad!"

Meant that as a reply to @Dipper, my bad...

@Jim, Labour's policy is to give voters a choice between a soft Brexit and remain. From the perspective of the City, both outcomes would be highly predictable and together they represent economic, if not political, stability going forward.

The point of Chris's post is the rationale of the City, not the internal coherence of Labour's position.

Dipper

@ Dave Timoney.

Why offer a choice? If Labour would be happy to implement soft Brexit why don't they do that now? Parliament requested the people gave them an instruction, and the people gave it. Why would you ask again if you have a perfectly acceptable way of implementing the previous request of the people?

This parliament has spent two years telling us they are representatives not delegates, and act on their consciences not under instruction, so why would they now seek instruction?

... and just to make a point, why should I, as a Leaver, accept a deal that has been put together by two parties neither of whom believes in it and both who would prefer the UK stays, as a valid implementation of the referendum result?

Dipper; "why should I, as a Leaver, accept a [soft Brexit] deal that has been put together by two parties neither of whom believes in it and both who would prefer the UK stays, as a valid implementation of the referendum result?"

Err ... because then you'd be rational in your thinking? If you rejected the soft Brexit deal they concoct and deliver just because of who created the deal you'd be guilty of a mistake in your thinking. A category error.
