If you look at the political scenario in Britain at the moment it is not exactly a heartening situation. A Conservative government which is effectively split down the middle because of Brexit and a Labour Party, in opposition, which looks incapable of taking power. All this at a time when Britain faces its biggest challenge since the Second World War. To be honest the only party which actually appears to make sense and have an idea of the direction they want to take are the Scottish Nationalists of Nicola Sturgeon and that is from an Englishman! The Liberal Democrats have a golden opportunity to recapture some lost ground with their pro-European message but at the moment they are not in any position to change the political landscape.

I think the only real solution is for an early general election. Let the electorate decide and it could also be the opportunity for a second referendum on Brexit. Opinion polls show that many Britons would now vote against Brexit because many of the statements which were dismissed as scaremongering have now come about, such as a lower pound, more expensive holidays and a possible exodus of foreign firms from Britain. Prime Minister Theresa May, who is PM by default, should do the honourable thing and go to the polls. Back me or sack me, should be her war cry. I do not think that you can take Britain into such a critical year without the full support of the British public. Britain is effectively divided.

What a wonderful thing this Brexit affair is. You leave the EU and all of a sudden you will be able to get doctor’s appointments for your kids, a school that they want to go to or an operation they need. Presumably you can't get any of those things now? Truly amazing! Methinks some folk live in cloud cuckoo land!

I agree,there is continuing confusion in UK. Britons will have to wait until the announcements in March,April or is it May. Dependent upon those proposals, will determine the General Mood of the UK, and the possibility of a snap election, and further Referendum. Sturgeon the Surgeon, is determined to have a Scottish Vote on REMAINING in Europe.Perhaps Scotland should be disconnected from the UK.

The pound is stable and climbing, none of the predictions have happened, from the remain campaign. During 2017, elections will take place throughout Europe, i doubt whether the EU will remain in its present form by the end of the year.

If there is a general election in the UK,Theresa May will be re elected by a landslide, that's a four for sure, and if there was a re referendum the leave vote would be increased by another 15%.

I am sorry Jason, i think you have got it all wrong
