The Brexit side of the media and the internet has gone crazy for Johnson’s deal. There has been a great deal of favourable coverage, and triumphalism over it. ‘They said he couldn’t re-negotiate, and he did’ the headlines yell. ‘They … Continue reading →
So it looks like the EU/Boris plan is the same as the old EU/Theresa May plan (as I have been saying for years): (1) Have a really awful thing in the deal. If you can get that through then great, … Continue reading →
What happens if Johnson doesn’t get a deal agreed and in place with the EU soon? Then he’s up to his neck in it. That’s why, for his sake, he has to get a deal. Think about the possibilities. Assume … Continue reading →
… it’s from the government. The Remainers can do nothing against a determined government. The Benn-Burt bill can easily be sidestepped, for example, by sending an additional letter to the EU making an extension impossible. Other Remainer last-minute tactics can … Continue reading →
A fitting end to a wretched Prime Ministership. The music fits perfectly.
A lot of Conservative MPs are making big claims about bringing down the government if they try to pursue a WTO Brexit. I say: call their bluff. They won’t do it. As soon Boris becomes PM (assuming he does), he … Continue reading →
Some people wanted a Boris coronation to save the pointlessness of a month run-off between Boris and Hunt, when it’s obvious Boris will win. I can see one advantage of that — getting Theresa May out of office before she … Continue reading →
As Theresa May escapes from the Downing St roof in a helicopter, I look forward to the new Tory leadership team betraying Brexit in their own way. They’ll have learned from May’s mistakes, and I expect they’ll do a much … Continue reading →
I have long said that in the current situation the Prime Minister can force a No Deal Brexit if he or she wants, regardless of what Parliament thinks. In this I differ from many commentators who insist that this is … Continue reading →
It would have been difficult enough for a highly-competent and beloved party to survive betraying Brexit. The idea that the Conservatives, a party which is both incompetent and widely disliked by its own voters, could survive it is just not … Continue reading →
I have finally discovered what the White Walkers were trying to say! Here’s the message: “PASS THERESA’S WITHDRAWAL AGREEMENT OR YOU SHALL ALL DIE”. [P.S. This is my created graphic, it’s not just something stolen off the internet.]
Forget the headlines about the men in the grey suits finally coming for Theresa May. She’s fudged the whole thing, with their connivance, because they’re all terrified of doing anything definite. Just ask yourself this question. Have the 1922 committee … Continue reading →
So. Game of Thrones. I don’t watch it, except the occasional bit when I can’t avoid it (my wife is a fan). Latest episode: dragon burns city. So I watched this short clip in a story about the Simpsons predicting … Continue reading →
In an amazing new scientific finding, it has been discovered that Conservative MPs perceive time slower than everyone else.
So Michael Gove continues his quest to completely torch his previous good reputation amongst conservatives and Leavers by saying that Theresa May should be left alone so can she go in her own good time. Michael Gove has called on … Continue reading →
