As I'm sure we are all aware, it is an extremely uncertain time for this country at the moment,. Following today's news about the potential extension of Article 50, we have 3 basic options for moving forward with the Brexit process.

Which one do you think is the best and most productive way forward?
My actual preference should next weeks negotiations or indicative votes fail to succeed is to essentially accept the flexible 1 year extension (we leave when we wish according to Tusk), have May start the leadership contest and then have the new leader go to the country on no deal (recent Youguv polling suggests there is now majority support in every English region bar London). We would then on that timetable and allowing a few months to manage the coming situation leave at the end of the year but be able to declare in summer that No Deal is what we have chosen (with the caveat that we would ratify May's withdrawal agreement only if we have a unilateral right to exit - Giving the EU the opportunity to force Ireland to cave).

That's not entirely correct. Read YouGov's full release on that...

Extension to allow for a GE or second referendum. It appears the only way to break both the deadlock in Parliament and to try and force the Tories to actually move the process forward. Since I’m sure we don’t need reminding (though we get it daily anyway) on the mess they’ve created with this process.

What we really need is a second referendum where the younger population votes (which won't happen anyways) because these voices are extremely important

The experts that predict "no deal" will be an economic catastrophe . . . what do they predict regarding the future strength of the Euro-economy?
I'm hearing reports that they are *actually* going into recession!

If we are in a customs union with them, we get the "benefit" of a shrinking market and are obstructed by tarriffs from exploiting better markets outside.

Hopefully a second referendum and stay, as half of the public didn't even know what Brexit was in the first Referendum. It was more commanly reffered to by the downies of EDL and Nigale Farage supporters as a button to stop immigrants coming in, overall leaving the Eu would be really bad for our economy, staying in Eu is our best shot at prosphering further

To be perfectly honest, I've felt a bit of guilt recently at just how much I've been enjoying all of the political drama that seems bent on making my future a hell of a lot harder. An indefinite extension would be my ideal solution, endless drama with no new major damage done.

You do understand that a lot of the economic disruption is caused by the uncertainty, a ploy that's being used by the remainers to make the idea of brexit less appealing, a ploy that most of us leavers can see right through though.

All media organisations are doing very well out of it, LBC has had record audiences and bloggers are also well up. Nothing sells facetime like Brexit! Imagine if the media knew that in advance and had helped conspire to make it so. It's quite incredible to imagine the likes of Facebook and Rupert Murdoch ensuring a Leave vote just to boost sales.

Watching other people's bad news on Telly has always been enjoyable for many. It's not quite so enjoyable when it's you. After we crash out and there are riots, food shortages, armed gangs of marauders and army rule, will we still be glued to Sky salivating for the next round of amusing chaos?

Honestly I think there should be a second referendum with the options of may's deal or no deal or even remain if people really want (but I don't think it's that good an idea). If they don't want to do this then just go with no deal because negotiating with the EU is hell, they're dicks tbh and I think a lot more would have liked to leave if it didn't have such bad economic effects.
