    1. If they have put party before constituents then yes. But I suspect local associations will toe the party line and decline.

    2. A boycott is stupid. You HAVE to vote if a second referendum happens. I would rather it didn’t happen because I can see various leave options against a single remain option, which splits the leave vote. Rather than a boycott a better campaign would be to get everyone to vote WTO option.

    3. What plan B? Ditch the backstop without EU agreement? Norway Option? Canada+++? Remain?

    4. Yep. I’d campaign and vote UKIP. Change will not happen if you keep voting for the same parties.

    As for futurology, it’s too early to tell, there are so many options and no one option seems to be ahead of the other. Personally I think May will resurrect Canada++ as a plan B (after all pre-chequers it was THE deal) and then claim it all as all her own work rather than David Davies’. There will be some negotiations with the Irish so the border moves between The European mainland and UK+Ireland. The North/South Irish border issue dissolves and the Southern Irish get to benefit from our cheap EU-tariff-free goods and EU grants at the same time. The Irish are a pragmantic bunch and pushing the border South (keeping a foot in both camps) could reap them vast benefits. Oh, and all those Irish-trained Racehorses can still cross the Irish sea to our race courses and keep earning betting cash.

    James, have you ever been on the American Intelligence Media YouTube site?

    If any of what is asserted is true, it tends to support the view that our swamp, here in the UK, were actively and prominently involved in the plot to overthrow President Trump. This video is about 45 minutes long but is worth the time:

      JiC … our swamp, here in the UK, were actively and prominently involved in the plot to overthrow President Trump.

      They were, via FVEYS – https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/the-five-eyes-the-intelligence-alliance-of-the-anglosphere/ – working with the Obama Administration and HRC and the corrupt FBI/DOJ/CIA which Trump is in the process of cleaning out. Overall responsibility for GCHQ lies with the PM – Cameron and May in this time frame. NZ and Canada swamps were also involved which is why HRC and others had frequent trips to both those countries to collect data.

    Not only do we not know what the politicians stand for, clearly THEY don’t either and might do their own thing at any time. See Brexit.
