    Default Brexit cancelled

    There are no excuses now for remain voters. Either vote for the Lib Dems or Greens (or SNP across the border) at the next GE, or stop whinging. A vote for any other party is a vote to leave.

    If the Lib Dems don't get close to 48% of the vote in England and Wales then remain voters deserve to see the UK taken out of the EU by the Tories or Corbyn and should just STFU

    I agree.

    Do you think that the LDs would support Labour in a coalition? (personally I don't see LD bagging 48% or even close)

    Do you think Remain would win a 2nd referendum with LD and Labour campaigning vigorously for Remain?

    Do you think LD would bring down the coalition if Leave won again? I do admire them for being honest that they want to just stop Brexit and would ignore a second referendum result if it didn't go their way).

    Genuine questions... I quite enjoy pondering the hypotheticals that politicians never like to talk about when interviewed.

    - No. Once bitten twice shy. They may do a vote by vote support, but can't see them forming a formal coalition and especially not with Corbyn as PM
    - Agreed, can't see the LDs getting anywhere near 48% because British voters are idiots. They complain constantly, but when push comes to shove they vote for the same colour rosette as always. If you're a remainer, and don't vote LD then you have no right to complain when we get brexit

    - Under Corbyn Labour won't back remain in a 2nd ref. Corbyn is a leaver, hence why remainers only have the choice of LD, Green or SNP if they truly want to vote for a remain party. Any other vote is a vote to leave.

    - If (and it's a big if), there was a 2nd ref, and Labour were somehow leading a minority government, and leave won again, then who knows what will happen. Would LDs have enough seats to make a difference (same goes for the SNP)? How minority would the Labour government be? What would be the Tory stance to a labour brexit? Too many ifs to a situation that is very unlikely to happen.

    This is why remain voters have a clear choice at the polls - vote for LD and to remain, or vote for Tory, give them a majority, and let them have their hard brexit and see how well that goes for them. A Labour vote isn't in the remainer's interest.

    Thanks! Very interesting. In fact I just heard on the news that JS said today that she "won't prop up" a Corbyn led government. So you're right, coalition is off the table.

    Ah I forgot the SNP they would certainly support a Labour coalition.

    I agree Corbyn is a leaver, but John McDonnell and Emily Thornberry have both said recently that Labour would campaign to remain. We'll see how this one develops!

    I think we're gonna need a bigger popcorn container

    Won't we have already left by the time of a GE? Oct 31st do or die, and all that.

    Will get binned for sure, just hope the leave voters pick up the invoice for several years of lost economic activity. A special tax code perhaps.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I suspect any financial loss you incur will be self-inflicted not Brexit-related
