    Will the British rise up and overthrow their monarchy and create a democratic republic?

    Actually Think -I am in UK at the moment for a few weeks- I think he is right- certainly majority opinion here is folks are 100% fed up with Brexit and the EU and just want it all over asap - yes preferably with a deal but closing in on 50% not fussed either way- just fed up with the nasty pettiness on Brussels the last 2 years and want OUT.
    MPs had a golden opportunity to approve a dal a few months ago that was probably not totally out of line with the average 52% who voted out in 2016 - but they just fought among themselves all the time and have lost the respect of the electorate.
    If MPs force a No Deal Law- the Brussels will simply refuse any changes( and they have said to Boris- up to him to offer them now as they know he is serious) and the whole farce will drag on and on to benefit of nobody but the rest of the world as UK looks more and more stupid and 3rd Worldish! Ok accept that would perhaps suit you!
    Yes a No deal would be bad news for the islands as well - how bad for how long is a guess,
    maybe just a few months - maybe longer.

    Actually Timlander1... Stop for a moment and Think...

    Are you really endorsing a Non-Elected Engrish Prime Minister suspension of the democratically elected Engrish Parliament with only the consent of a God appointed Geriatric German Monarch...?

    Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee....., Chay....
    There was a time when I wished South-America could approach Anglo-Saxon political maturity standards...

    Instead I got the Anglo-Saxons (BoJo & Donald) reaching South-American political immaturity standards...

    You are right in one point though...
    As a declared Anglosphere rival... it suits me fine...

    Think- actually the current UK Primeminister,e election by his party followed the same system as many have before- last one being Mrs May and Labour,s Brown before . Yes in due course he/she then faced a general election - as Boris will one day likewise but he is a lawfull PrimeMinister - like him or not.
    Facts and Reality are all he has done is suspended parliament for 5 more days
    than normal happens at this time of year anyway - party conference season is coming up as it always does each year.

    Mr. Miller- actually this current American-Engrish Tory Prime-Minister is still not elected by the Kingdoms citizens...
    Lawfully designated by his own party and..., maybe..., his mom..., alright...
    But not elected by the people to rule them through these..., “ More than Interesting Times” left over by their previous..., also Non-Elected Tory Prime Ministerette...
    Facts and Reality are..., he has just..., as a Non-Elected Prime Minister..., suspended Parliament during..., in this humble Patagonian opinion..., a crucial time for Engelands and its BOT's future...

    Hoping for the worst...

    Brussels will refuse any changes anyway, and Boris knows it, that's why he's suspending parliament in order to force no deal through. It's painful watching this happening to my country, we're already a laughing stock and now we're choosing the most disastrous possible option. I can't understand how people can be so blind.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
