In any normal society each and every one of these fuckers that are profiting out of Brexit would be jailed.  

Shame we don’t live in such a place anymore by the sounds of it because this really isn’t news :Monty Oh Well

I think Trump has proven you can be as outrageously blatant as you want, and no one will stop you anyway.


It's one of those things in 40/50 years people will be asking how it was allowed to happen and we'll just shrug our shoulders and say it just was.

Dominic Cummings and Boris Johnson are going to test the boundaries like mad whilst Parliament is prorogued and the BBC will stand by and do nothing because in the interests of balance, they have to be left to do that and go unchallenged or else it could be biased.

These guys have found the cheat codes and are going to destroy democracy from the inside if they can.

Gauke moving towards referendum

Quote: The law means an extension will have to be sought if a deal has not been reached. How about getting a deal? (To be fair, even with a deal, an extension will be needed to put in place the legislation, but that was always the case.)

This approach means being realistic as to our demands of the EU (so that rules out scrapping the backstop without a workable replacement) and looking to deliver a deal that will have some cross-party support (assuming that some Conservative MPs won’t support any kind of deal).

This is my preferred option for a number of reasons, including the fact that it would enable the recent split in the Parliamentary Party to be reversed (on which point, I obviously have a personal interest to declare). But, to be fair, it is worth acknowledging the problems.

First, there is no guarantee of getting a Parliamentary majority for a deal. A lot of work will be needed with MPs across the House. (This might be easier were the Commons sitting, but that is another matter.)

Second, it means taking on Nigel Farage and, potentially, losing the support of voters enthusiastic about No Deal. It is a real problem for the Conservative Party. Too many of our voters have listened to those who have argued that any compromise constituted a betrayal, and that this great nation had nothing to fear from a no deal Brexit.

That type of rhetoric has boxed the Government in and made it harder for us as a country and Party to face up to the trade-offs inherent in reaching a sustainable compromise. Only a very skilled communicator could move from being an opponent of compromise to an advocate for it. In my view, we have a Prime Minister with the capacity to do that, but it will not be easy.

In short, Johnson has two options if he is going to face an imminent general election. Tough it out, be a No Deal Brexit Party and lose votes to the Liberal Democrats. Or get a deal and risk the return of the Brexit Party.

There is a third option, of course, if a majority for a deal cannot be assembled. Try to resolve Brexit this side of a general glection by holding a referendum, as suggested recently by Oliver Letwin. This could mean that Brexit will have been resolved by the time we get to that election and, the argument goes, the traditional Conservative coalition of voters can be restored.

This, too, has its risks and downsides. Speaking for myself, I have long argued against a second referendum and still want to avoid it. But unless we can make rapid progress towards Parliament supporting a deal, those calls are only going to grow.

It's the sort of stunt that will play very well with aggrieved little englanders. How dare poxy little Luxembourg deign to tell the prime minister of England what to do.

All the headlines are now about a nothing spat, and not the fact that there's still no solution even been offered to the irish backstop, which is what Juncker's statement was about. Johnson has very literally walked away from the problem, but the real issue is that he's not addressing the issue whatsoever.

Oh hi and welcome to court. You must be new here. Monty Chuckle Monty Chuckle Sorting the papers is always a shambles.

Tbf they are trying to digitalise and making a decent stab at it, they only wants papers served electronically now. Quite Good The bundles will be huge as well so I wouldn't hold this against them too much.

Can’t (well, can) believe the pelters he’s getting. Guido unmasked him as a labour activist anaw so his views aren’t valid. Shameful.
