Re: PM Boris forms a government

She is an arch Remainer who showed her discomfort with her pretence at supporting Boris. Why she accepted a cabinet position is a mystery to me.

Re: PM Boris forms a government

Not really a surprise. She is a rather moderate one nation Tory and would have been one of the rebels had she not been in the cabinet so as soon as they were gone her days were numbers. I think Hancock and Gove might be looking at the writing on the wall too.

You said "interesting call on Gove", so I wondered if Mr Redwood had shared some gossip with you.

Maybe he will see you a little earlier if you announce that you are a valued CF contributor?

I assume that’s because he’s busy the previous day...

Not really. It certainly doesn’t help you.

Article 50 is the mechanism in the “Treaty” of Lisbon. Which is a Treaty, is it not? To terminate membership

In the discussion Nomadking claimed the Backstop was illegal because it prevented the unilateral Withdrawl from an agreement. I.e. A.50 Treaty of Lisbon.

You then went off about the Vienna convention, which quite simply doesn’t apply in this instance because A.50 exists in the Treaty of Lisbon for this very purpose.

The backstop isn’t illegal, because it is not binding and we can choose to ignore it if we so wish. But the question over whether agreement of us leaving or not has been answered and is not in question.

So next time you try to put an amusing Gif on a post, make sure you fully understand what it is you’re trying to take the piss out of, or you may look a bit thick.

Re: PM Boris forms a government

The most worrying thing about this to me isn't BoJo breaking the law but Ian Duncan Smith's talk of martyrs. That is the language of extremists.

Re: PM Boris forms a government

The following letter in yesterday's Torygraph says it all:

"The schedule of the Bill being passed this week instructs the Prime Minister to sign and send a letter surrendering his government and its foreign policy to a foreign power - the EU. What we have witnessed is not democracy but the first Vichy Parliament in British history."

Typical disingenuous spin. IDS used the term "martyred" in
the sense of "crucified".

If that is the "most worrying thing" to you than I suggest you re-evaluate yourself.

As soon as someone tries to invoke WW2 metaphors in this context, you know they don't have a convincing argument. This letter is a prime example, published in a paper that is anti-EU as its rich proprietors the Barclay Brothers dislike attempts to clamp down on their tax lopholes.

Says a lot about the loss of perspective some have. Vichy Parliament? Really?
