    The Russia report tl-dr seems to be -

    Did you find any evidence of Russian ****ey? No
    Did you actually look? No

    "The day after we vote to leave we hold all the cards and we can choose the path we want." --Michael Gove (9 April 2016)

    "There will continue to be free trade, and access to the single market." --Boris Johnson (26 June 2016)

    "Getting out of the EU can be quick and easy – the UK holds most of the cards in any negotiation." --John Redwood (17 July 2016)

    "Within 2 years, before negotiation with the EU is likely to be complete, and therefore before anything material has changed, we can negotiate a free trade area massively larger than the EU. The new trade agreements will come into force at point of exit" --David Davis (July 2016)


    "To me, Brexit is easy." --Nigel Farage (20 September 2016)

    "The free trade agreement that we will have to do with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history." --Liam Fox (20 July 2017)

    "I believe that we can get a free trade and customs agreement concluded before March 2019" --David Davis (January 2017)

    "It will be easy to negotiate a trade deal" --Paul Nutall, UKIP leader (January 2017)

    "Trade relations with the EU could be sorted out in 'an afternoon over a cup of coffee" --Gerard Batten, UKIP Brexit spokesman (February 2017)


    “What’s the requirement of my job? I don’t have to be very clever. I don’t have to know that much. I just do have to be calm.” — David Davis (12 November 2017)

    So: no trade deal with the EU, and no trade deal with the US.

    I say, this whole Brexit thing is going splendidly, isn't it?

    Will there be no EU deal though. Or will boris accept/put forth the shittest of deals just to proclaim his brilliant negotiations have proved the doubters and 'no-deal doom mongers' wrong.

    Look at the last time.
