    Better hurry up, we may lose NI and Scotland soon so we'll have to change it to "But we're Little Britain? Yeah, but no".

    South China Post is not that optimistic:

    And Aljazeera enumerates the first seven signs of what Brexit Britain is about to become:

    1. Damien Green advocates a US-style, insurance-based social care system

    2. Confirmation extra nurses and hospitals will not materialise for at least 10 years

    3. Plans to outlaw boycotts of Israeli goods and institutions

    4. Ditching workers' rights and environmental protection

    5. Axing pledge to allow MPs a vote on extending Brexit transition

    6. Abandoning plans to raise the national living wage

    7. Finding support among the far-right

    I read this this morning, it's about what happens to the brain when we disagree and while it may not seem related to Brexit it sort of explains why reasoned arguments and all the evidence in the world simply doesn't register when it comes to being right or wrong.
    IDK what parts of the problem leavers and remainers could agree on though as they seem so diametrically opposed.

    That's why we shouldn't have referendums and shouldn't ask the people should we leave or stay, it opens up divisions to where there is no common ground we can share. Referendums are not called tyranny of the majority for nothing.

    Doesn't want to go to the World Economic Forum in Davos because it's 'elitist', but happy to jet off to a private island in the Caribbean to celebrate New Year's.



    The People's Prime Minister of The People's Government, remember.

    Not just the Telegraph:
    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10631...-by-flying-economy-to-caribbean-for-new-year/
    https://www.express.co.uk/news/poli...tish-airways-election-holiday-st-lucia-brexit
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...taxpayers-flying-British-Airways-economy.html

    Notice the striking similarities in the headings (which are ******** by the way; the PM always pays for their own holidays). Propaganda machine going full tilt.

    You gotta admit though it's pretty cool seeing how propaganda works in real-time, I've found a new sense of empathy for people in 1930-40's Germany.
