We have been spectators for almost three and a half years now on the Brexit of the UK. Maybe, this issue will be finally decided within the month (end of October 2019).

In the past few years, everyone has had plenty of opportunity to make up one's mind what the UK should do, considering facts and non-facts that came up during this time that might not have been known in March 2016 when the original poll on this question in this forum started.

As the original thread seems to be of continuous interest with close to 2700 posts, it would be interesting to know how people feel about the issue right now.

Basically, it appears at this time that the UK has only three possible options. Which one should it choose?

  1. Remain in the EU?
  2. Leave accepting the deal which the EU has offered?
  3. Leave by 'Hard Brexit'?

At this stage I couldn't choose between.

1. The disUK remaining means a sane brake on EU centralisation.
2 & 3. Have a good chance of the break up of the disUK.
All 3 mean damage to the Tories.

Whichever happens there are silver linings to this mess.

Not many have yet responded to the poll.

As Britain has not left by October 31st, 2019 which comes as a surprise (Uh, wait... :unsure:) there is more opportunity to do so.

(Edit: Added '2019')

We need a 4th option:

4. Hail a passing TARDIS and go back 5 to 10 years. You'll still have half decent internet even back then. Rinse and repeat.
