    In these divided times, there may be one thing that many on both sides of the Brexit debate can agree on: that this is a national humiliation.
    But can an entire nation be humiliated?
    David Grossman reports.
    Dr Priyamvada Gopal, author of Insurgent Empire: Anticolonialism and British Dissent and Professor Richard Tombs from the University of Cambridge, join Katie Razzall in discussion.

There we are May is gone and cried like a baby . Stop putting these retarded hacks into power. If you want out .. GO OUT and dont come to bruessels haggling like a fucking carpet merchant in a turkish bazar to get a better deal. You wanted out. Now fucking pay the price. BTW the only reason why that piece of shite farrange and his clique wanted out is to save the money laundering class of rich assholes financing them and of course their own offshore interests and not because of PATRIOTISM. Its pure GREED. And average joe is going to pay for it as always.

It is unfortunate that people seem to think democracy and freedom exist because of the ability to vote, and equally by leaving the EU, there are those who surmise everything will be better. What people never realise is that until a country and even the World get out of the Central Bank system of money issuance, nothing will ever change. It is not the politicians or the Kings and Queens that rule but those who can create deposits with the flick of the pen. One day you will take time to understand this, and when you do, perhaps, you will be clever enough to stop bickering and realize you, us, are nothing more to the system than useful idiots! All these 'experts' and commentators with nothing poignant to say because they neither understand the system and fail to see where true power is held.

I'm going out on a limb here I'm assuming the one professor is of Indian descent . The one question that the reporter didn't ask her was if the country of India was better off today for the British having colonized it or worse . It would have been interesting to hear her answer .

The Asian woman seems to be suggesting that because Britain colonised other countries in the past it cannot be "colonised" or have its sovereignty subsumed in the present. Well Britain has seen unprecedented levels of foreign immigration despite opinion polls showing broad public opposition. It is also undeniable that membership of the EU transfers sovereignty away from Britain's historic sources of democratic legitimacy (i.e. Parliament & the Monarchy). She is right to point out that Britain is not being "colonised" in the same way as the past but if we define colonisation as the mass arrival of foreigners + the various ways in which a nation can be subject to the designs of foreign interests then yes the British people are being divorced from institutions of power in this sense.

The logo picture on this video of May excrementing EU stars is very on point. Al least it's out of both ends! It's the gurning and freezing-up as she is asked any direct question while she dreams up more verbal diarrhoea that gets me: When will she ever stop. P'haps when the court-case of her actions legality is heard in the High Courts next month: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTZ6sWkij-I&t=1s Can't wait. Excuse the bad pun, but even Newsnight May attend and do a report!

Here’s the truth - I rather suspect people – including our friends in the EU realise the British humiliation is down to the pampered dandies we have representing us in Parliament. I give it to you now… Have a middle class upbringing – mummy and daddy both have good jobs and can afford to send me to Uni. I’m not really that bright but I’ve left Uni with a degree in something or other – yes I remember now – it was something to do with sports training or religion – anyway I got my degree and I’ve joined our local Political party and started going door to door campaigning. Isn’t it wonderful – I’ll soon be an MP running our Country – I really can’t wait to get started. I accept the fact that I have never really had to work for a living - but I know deep in my heart that I would eventually make a good leader for our Country - because I do follow current affairs and watch the BBC.

The overaged hippie Cambridge professor is what we, in Flanders, would consider a seeing blind. She sees the problem, but fails to internalise/speak out about it. Britain has representative democracy backwards. You need to have parties with clear, unique agendas on certain aspects of public life, proportionally represented in your governing body, then reach a majority consensus by coalition/compromise. Instead you have parties which are coalitions, with differing internal agendas and a majority by a first past the post system. Do you even realise how f'ed up having two major parties with both leavers and remainers in their ranks and a remainer Prime Minister trying to push through a version of Brexit almost nobody in your parliament really wants, looks to people in the rest of Europe, who have 'normal' coalition governments?

She didn't have to go with her hat in her hand though. She made our position weak from day one by grovelling to what she believes is the superiority of the EU. Anyway, the only people who should feel embarrassed are the politicians for their distain for the will of the people and the propagandists for trying their hardest to sow division and dodge democracy

what do you guys expect in a world where facts do not have any weight. Its a world of demagogues, its a world of fading education, a reverse time of enlightenment, a time when the incest of aristocracy is replaced by incestuous power elites and this enumeration could go on and on... . For me, as a european, born in Germany its a frightening time. The germans of my generation grew up with the burden of the german original sin, we learnt about the signs that led to the catastrophe, a lot of us fought for understanding in between cultures; and what I do see now in Great Britain and all over the world is a backward feeling (cause its definitely not thinking) that for the first time in my life makes me believe we might have violent times in front of us. And what might be the resolution: EDUCATION

This is what happens when you have a Remainer who has shown her true colours and that she really does not believe in Brexit: How else can you describe May's behaviour? May seemed to want to please everyone else except the Brexit voters who won the vote! May has no shame and still wants to carry on her shameful excesses by carrying on! At least one good thing has come out of this; the dissolution of the two party system in the UK, who were always two faces of the same coin. For the reputation of democracy: we must Brexit as soon as possible. It has also shown that the bulk of our MP's are turncoats and anti-democrats!

Well, that ticked a box for a couple of academics. Added nothing to the debate. No mention either of the BBC's concerted efforts to derail Brexit, if we want to look around as to who is responsible for any type of humiliation. Love the guest banging on about colonialism. Amazed she didn't hold up a copy of her book for the camera. The standard of journalism in this piece is back of the envelope planning, let's fill five minutes.

More propaganda from the establishment propaganda channel the BBC. I for one will pray that Farage and the BREXIT party hold the keys to power after the next election with the privatisation or closure of the BBC being one of their top priorities. The evil home for the elitist privately educated unemployable's BBC must be stopped now.

@Temps Perdu I could not disagree more strongly. The measure of any organization is the people that work for it. How in Gods name can an organization that claims to be balanced and impartial have staffing levels that don't represent the country or its people so so clearly as is the case with the Privately educated un-representative state-controlled machine that is the BBC? The BBC distorts the entire British media by not having to worry its privately educated little head with such base issues such as income as if the peasants don't pay we shall put them in prison. The BREXIT party must make a commitment to privatize or close this vile establishment propaganda machine for privately educated unemployable's as a condition of any coalition.

@Andy GoldieAs broadcasters go, I think the BBC does a fairly good job. It's impossible for any broadcaster to be completely neutral all the time, although I think the BBC should strive to be so. It's their responsibility to report the facts and try and maintain a balanced discussion from different voices of the political spectrum, and for the most part, they do this pretty successfully. The problem is, strongly opinionated people's views of the world are often coloured by their own bias, so that reports that reinforce their own prejudices are seen as as 'neutral', while anything that challenges their worldview is 'biased' - thus the BBC faces continual accusations by the right but also even by the left.

@Temps Perdu So are you proposing we continue with this clearly totally corrupted (bought and paid for) two-party scam we currently have and pay for? Neither you or I know whether Farage is the solution or not. However, anybody with a brain knows the BBC is totally corrupted not even attempting to provide news but preferring to make it. Infested with a fast over-representation of privately educated privileged left wing tossers. Much the same can be said about the senior levels of the civil service, hence the Olly Robins BREXIT currently on offer Theresa May being little more than a useful idiot.

@Andy GoldieFarage is not the solution, he's part of the problem, don't you see? I'm all for democracy, just I don't think the Brexit Party is going to help us or has any positive vision for Britain. I actually don't think the American and British models are the best examples of democracy, to be honest. The US electoral college got Trump elected when he lost the popular vote by 3 million votes, while the UK's first-past-the post system means votes for smaller parties very seldom get translated into seats in parliament, even when they have significant popular support.

The ☪ BBC ☭ wrote the book on humiliating Britain so they are the ones to ask, fronted by their pet Marxist historian Mary Beard et al. For example by 1900AD *800,000 Europeans live in India* with a then population of 294 million Indians so eventually Mahatma Gandhi says 'enough is enough' and sends them away, this was considered 'colonialism', in BBC world this is a bad thing. Fast forward to 2019 and around 13% of the British population of around 65-70 million are now immigrants who have a far higher birth rate, by 2007AD, *500,000 Indians were living in London alone.* This however is multiculturalism which in BBC world is a good thing. Little wonder nobody with the ability to think critically higher than a lab rat takes the MSM seriously any more.
