  1. Teresa ty nie pierdol farmazonow walczysz o swój kraj ty hipokryta a pamiętasz i zdajesz sobie sprawę ile twój kraj uczynił zła na świecie?! for example : kolonizowaliscie inne państwa jak barbarzyńcy! mieliście ludzi za nic! wypierdalac z EU Polska wam pomogła w czasie wojny a wy kazaliscie zapłacić nam za samoloty i co najlepsze zdradziliscie Polske 🇵🇱 Karma wraca I życzę sobie żeby jakiś inne Państwa was zkolonizowaly tak jak wy to robiliście,. świat Powinien odebrać wszystko co jest nie wasze!

  2. Northern Ireland is now Ireland – there is no other option or Nothern Ireland has to pay the Brexit pice.🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️

  3. HA ha . I love the cartoon. And to others who commented on this video, I think Margaret Thatcher is the second greatest PM that Brittan has ever had.

  4. What a mess May has made of this. She is a politician not a negotiator, should have used hard line negotiators to deal with the EU, no wonder businesses are moving out the UK….

  5. General election???. can you imagine in your wildest dreams a government led by Jeremy Corbyn , with Diane abbot as home secretary and John McDonald as chancellor. The rich, the media and the ruling classes wouldn't stand for that, not with McDonald tax regime no way, they'd vote Tory to a man.

  6. Teresa May wants "to force the EU to give in to her demands"? What a strange perspective!

    A better way to put it would be: "She's going to the EU and saying that she can't persuade parliament to give in to one specific European demand"! That's more like it.

  7. U.K. govt simply needs to repeal the European communities act 1972 in accordance with U.K. priorities. Why wait till March now ?

  8. If the government had not tryed to con us into a brexit only by name then we would have been in a better position now we didn't use our best negotiators designed to fail by a government that wanted to remain stifling brexit corrupt traitors

  9. Why, when the '' have been found guilty of data breaches related to the referendum is the referendum result not anulled? Surely the triggering of Article 50 is unlawful. Thus the intentions and actions of the PM and government are unlawful re brexit?
