Debate House Prices


We’re struggling at the moment with the huge volumes of messages we’re getting from Forumites about coronavirus and the impact it’s having on their finances. We’re a small team and we’re doing our best to manage this spike in demand. As a result, we’ve reluctantly decided to temporarily close the Debate House Prices & the Economy Board so that we can redirect our limited resources to those who need us most at this time.

Please do not post content intended for this board elsewhere in the forum – we appreciate your help and understanding during this exceptionally difficult time. It goes without saying, we hope to get back to full business as soon as possible!

Doesn't matter whether you want it to or not, do you think it will or not?

I don't want Brexit, but I thought it was inevitable. I have moved to thinking the possibility of any party delivering Brexit is minimal now. It will become one of those intractable issues like Northern Ireland used to be, that will just go on forever causing discord.

    I'm a remainer but a form of Brexit will happen. it's unlikely to be a version that pleases many people but I think that it's almost inevitable.
    I hate verisimilitude.

    If there was any political appetite or workable plan for it then it would have happened already.

    At this stage, we're going to drag it out until cancelling it is a sure fire winner.

    Not that it matters anyway, we'd have rejoined within a decade.

    It will happen....in that we will no longer be members of the EU.

    It won't happen in that we will still be a vassal state following the edicts of our betters in Brussels.

    Worst solution for UK, best for Euro federalists. Why do you think they did their best to encourage the Brexit vote, having the UK in the decision making process always slowed federalization, having us out of the decision loop but still following orders and paying is ideal.
    I think....

    There is a political appetite for it, but in almost the same ~50:50 split as the country.

    I don't think anyone can predict what will happen, but both sides are becoming more entrenched and any compromises that the conservatives make to get labour support are likely to lose just as much conservative support.

    At some point they will betray the result of the 2017 general election and ignore the will of the people and keep holding general elections every five years until 'they' get the result they want. Something may then change one way or another.

    Er, there's general elections every five years anyway. Unless of course Corbyn gets in, momentum woukd probably then unseat him, put McDonnell in and declare him emperor for life.
