Meanwhile, the Scots are trying to do away with Parliament altogether and use their courts (again) to decide what we do.

It does seem Cummings is out of control though. He clearly does not tolerate leaks in No. 10 and so the "leaks" to the Spectator and the one about the Merkel phone call are clearly penned by him.

This description of No. 10 from the other side of the table is apt and accurate:

Embarrassing times to be British ..
And how is "EU’s longstanding position that a customs border was not compatible" inconsistent with what Merkel is claimed to have said? Was Tusk in on the call? Doesn't seem so.

Special sitting for MPs to decide Brexit future.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49984367

Quote:
The House of Commons has only sat on four Saturdays since 1939, including on 2 September that year, due to the outbreak of World War Two.
Quote:
The last time there was a Saturday sitting was 3 April 1982, due to the invasion of the Falkland Islands.

I think the Smurf was be humorous which I for one, applaud on this desperately depressing thread.

If he wasn't being humorous it's become more depressing..

The depressing part is that you actually don't know for certain if he was being humorous

Just ignore the spin from the Propaganda Ministry at No. 10. Probably the best course of action ..

Re: Brexit Development(s) Discussion

Wars, nasty things that happen occasionally.

Lots of people see combat once, and for a very brief time.

Some people make quite a bit of money from them.

They do tend to cull excessive population growth nicely though.

Those who want and instigate wars should lead from the front

I honestly believe some of our older senile generation would love a war. They could wheel Vera Lynn out, eat powdered egg and sing rude songs about foreigners, who they are reliant on for care....

Re: Brexit Development(s) Discussion

There's always the possibility that Boris is planning to leave the EU with a purpose.

If we crash out there will be economic chaos in both the UK and the EU.

However, once we are out of the EU he can take up all the deals that Liam Fox provisionally facilitated around the world plus of course a deal with America.

The EU won't really be able to do that and they also need to find where the contribution money gap created by the UK leaving is going to come from.

The EU will be losing out on the UK market and our businesses will be using our new deals to market the products that would have gone to the EU, so that's the EU's loss.

Then of course Boris can apply sometime later to do a trade deal with the EU but on his terms. Given that our trade potential should be a lot higher from all the new deals, the EU might be happier to do a deal with us in the future.

But we'll have to wait and see.

I believe in gambling that sort of proposition is called a six-fold accumulator - a lot has to go right to win it...
