    Emphatic results coming in from the EU Elections. The new Brexit Party is sweeping up the votes across England and Wales. A strong indication that Brexit means Brexit.

    Or, by share of the vote (as it currently stands before counting complete I believe) - it is the clearly pro-remain parties (LD, Change UK, Greens, SNP, PC) that have the largest percentage of support as a group at approximately 40%. Didn't include Labour as they do not have a clear stance IMO. Conservatives are also still split internally. Pretty similar as the recent local council elections. If you want to take it as a single issue vote - Remain won.

    Will all the new MEP's be entitled to a good pension even if the UK comes out of the EU, some could work as an MEP for months?

    Unfortunately, the boat on "Remain v Leave" left port 3yrs ago. The last boat now boarding concerns How do we leave, Deal or No Deal. This boat sets sail on Oct 31, 2019.

    Boris Johnson: Premiership will be the start of a golden age

    Boris Johnson has promised the "beginning of a new golden age", as he made his first Commons statement as PM.

    Speaking to MPs, Mr Johnson said his government would throw itself into Brexit negotiations with energy.

    He said Michael Gove would make planning for a no-deal Brexit a "top priority", and EU citizens living in the UK would have their rights protected.

    But Jeremy Corbyn said people "do not trust" the new PM to deliver.

    Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has also written to Mr Johnson to say it is "essential" her country has an alternative option to his Brexit plan.

    Brexit: Corbyn plan to stop no deal meets resistance

    Jeremy Corbyn's plan to prevent a no-deal Brexit by being installed as a caretaker PM has been met with opposition from key potential allies.

    If he wins a no-confidence vote in the government, the Labour leader plans to delay Brexit, call a snap election and campaign for another referendum.

    The SNP and Plaid Cymru did not rule out supporting a cross-party government to stop a no-deal exit.

    But Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson said she would not support making Mr Corbyn PM.

    Responding to Mr Corbyn's offer, she said Mr Corbyn's plan was not "viable" because he lacked the required support among opposition MPs in Parliament.
