    Likewise you'd think Conservatives would be proud of the NHS given what labour created was, iirc, a slight modification of a Tory proposal [which in turn was based on a Liberal white paper].



    ...But the European Convention on Human Rights and the Single Market were Tory ideas and they seem equally intent on setting fire to those too.

    I know David Davis is more than a bit stupid but did the 15% fall in the value of sterling after the vote teach him nothing? He's now asking if a further 20% drop is this such a bad thing.

    If the 15% fall didn't make UK exports more competitive what on earth makes him believe a 20% is going to be any different, all it's going to do is make things we buy 20% more expensive, it means my planned end of year upgrade is going to cost me £300+ more. :mad:

    It does make it cheaper for Russian Oligarchs to launder their money through property acquisitions in London, so all good in the eye of Tories:naughty:

    Meanwhile the ferry company that has no ferries and no port to operate from turns out to never have had any backers. Grayling managing to achieve fractal levels of fail.

    Oh, and the government now admits it won't have those bigly 40 trade deals ready to roll over in time for Brexit day. Interestingly it mentions that Japan doesn't want to roll over any deal at all, but start negotiations with the UK from scratch.

    As Redflames said...
    Oh, and after Boris said "**** business", business is now saying "**** government".

    Oh, and remember when I said (to nobody's surprise here) that Boris Johnson is a sociopath? Well, he is a sociopath.

    Erm, how many times must they be told, its pretty hard for anyone to stockpile medical isotopes?

    Or do the laws of physics stop at the point of Brexit?

    Normalcy bias at work. "It would be crazy to have no deal, so surely they'll agree on something/surely the other side will cave in at the last moment..."

    And enter Gavin 'Airfix' Williamson now chiming in his surreal Brexit piece, has Westminster turned into Walmington-on-Sea only except it's not funny.

    So did Mrs May come back with anything? I know she spent the last two weeks or so in Brussels trying to renegotiate and she was updating parliament today but I've not heard much on what she's managed to achieve, was it basically nothing?

    No, no, no she got an agreement to talk again...

    Besides that I think she got a load of Belgian chocolate and beer to sell on ebay after we leave.

    Basically she confirmed the stories about MPs having no real say in Brexit until end of Feb, then sometime in march there will be a final vote for MPs...

    In the meantime she will continue her current charade of randomly picking between the following five:
    "nothings changed, honest"
    "Brussels has to and will surrender"
    "National interest"
    "But Corbyn"
    "leave is totally compatible with the GFA and CTA, there will be no border but we take control of the border and the backstop will be changed or removed, just don't ask me commit to either removing it or changing it"

    While in reality she is just kicking the can down the road and refusing to acknowledge that the clock goes tick tock as she quickly runs out of said road.

    She did promise to kick the can herself:

    So as far as Brexit is concerned they could go on holiday until the end of the month and it would make no difference.

    I guess I'll have to keep hoping that one day I'll turn on the TV or look on a forum and see Mrs May standing outside No.10 saying how she sent a letter to the EU saying the UK withdraws A50 and that she's stepping down, then.
