    I wonder if it's traitorous to call the Queen a traitor with no real evidence..

    You're not missing anything, the people who champion 'No Deal' seem to forget that only one place on earth sells unicornium so stamping your feet, screaming at the sales (wo)man, and telling them to get stuffed is counterproductive as if you want unicornium you'll return next week with a big slice of humble pie in your hand.

    It's like unobtainium, only rarer.

    And there's cakeium, which is some sort of quantum state element --you can consume it and still have it at the same time.

    A work colleague used to talk about a 3 state version of Cakieum, that you could in the right conditions eat, still have and also make trifle with the next day...

    Brexiteers are probably souring on the idea of being like Switzerland too -

    Statement from the EU on what they expect from May.
    Time to put up or shut up.

    To be fair, Switzerland was always the worst inspiration for Brexiteers...
    Because Switzerland has been in an endless negotiation about its future relationship with the EU since basically the day the EU was founded.

    Sounds like the revolutionary new Boris Johnson quantum theory of Cakeium. The one involving parallel universes.

    I always thought Switzerland was a strange choice for some Brexiteers, I mean they love having loads of referenda over there - that's enough to send some of them to the doctors with high blood pressure.

    On the other hand the constant referenda do provide some counter to the "Elites" the leavers love to complain about.
    Of course they also have another option available, not voting for authoritarian cu**s, but that is probably a bridge too far:p

    LOL. They actually thought that 21 months was enough to negotiate a trade agreement? More like 21 years.

    21 centuries wouldn't be sufficient to coax a concensus from the current crop of MPs

    A crushing, nihilistic void from which not even light can escape. Sounds like Brexit.
