Quote:
Damian Green, leader of the One Nation caucus of MPs, says Boris Johnson told him at meeting:
- he will not go into election promising no deal Brexit
- he will not make a pact with Nigel Farage.
"We looked each other in the eye. I accept and believe the reassurances," says Green

Interesting.
Firstly that he now admits Brexit maybe delayed. Secondly that going into an election on a No Deal platform is unacceptable to many in his party, Also he hates Farage, and who can blame him for that.

He could of course be lying, unlikely I know...

No mr K you're the one who hates Farage,Boris just won't have an election pact with him, you should seek medical help for your hate issues before your health is impacted.

When did this forum become full of medical professionals? I suppose with the inevitable medicine shortages after no deal Brexit we might resort to following old wives tales in vain attempts to heal illnesses.

There won't be a no-deal Brexit. Not even Boris will sign off on it.

Is our current position anywhere near that ??? I don’t believe so

Also the EU et all would have to agree to the use of Article 24
I don't know where you get that from, that you have to be 'on the verge' of finalising an agreement. It's a protection period of up to 10 years, remember?

Anyway, both the UK and the EU know what they want from the trade deal, so it would be relatively simple to set that out in an appropriate document to satisfy Article 24.

Why would the EU not sign it? They don't want a disruption of a 'no deal' according to them, and this provides the breathing space both sides need. If we can't agree on a deal, this is the practical means of resolving the transitional problems of our leaving.

No EU country will weaken the union by voting against an extension. It's in no member country's interests.
The point made is incorrect. You cannot point to any part of the GATT Agreement that proves your point. It's just more smoke and mirrors from the Remain side

You appear to be confusing people who reference barristers and judges with people who think they are barristers and judges.

For example, I don't think you're the Daily Express, even though you reference it frequently...

Wrong, that does not say it is impossible, merely very unlikely in practice.

You're willing to throw £100 on Boris not doing a 'no deal brexit', yet continually harp on about Boris and his chums definitely wanting one in order to earn their £millions . . . make your mind up fella
