  1. Brexit: The fallout

    There is this Nobile Officium concept in Scottish law that could see Lord Carloway of the Inner House of the Court of Session deliver the note on behalf of the PM if Johnson refuses to do so and he has been ordered to do so by the courts. I suspect even he would resign rather than run the risk of being prosecuted for misconduct in public office, which carries a possible life sentence!
  2. Brexit: The fallout

    Bettel absolutely laid into Brexit and the mess in London. Johnson ran away rather than face any questions.
  3. Brexit: The fallout

    Undermining the judiciary was key to the Nazis seizing control of the country. The parallels are there for those willing to see them.
  4. Brexit: The fallout

    If the Tories and BXP form a pact then I'd compare Johnson to von Papen and Farage to you know who. British democracy would genuinely be at risk if people vote for this far right sh1tshow.
  5. Brexit: The fallout

    Aaaaand we're back to UK govt ministers and Tory MPs making veiled threats to Ireland's supply lines (last time it was Ms Patel and her food, this time Barclay/Evans and medicines)...      
  6. Brexit: The fallout

    Hurray for turnips!
  7. Brexit: The fallout

    So stuff that currently gets delivered by lorry from Holland would be flown in by plane now. Not enough planes in the world and if there were the price of Dutch tomatoes would quadruple.
  8. Brexit: The fallout

    As suspected, that 6 page "report" is a very short executive summary really. The detailed stuff has NOT been released by HMG who are playing games again...
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    Anyone who thinks Brexit has not been manipulated to make some people very rich are naive or liars. The whole thing stinks. What was Aaron Banks doing in winter in Moscow Balticis? He says he was on holiday. Asked by a journalist what he did there he says he took a river cruise...only the water was frozen solid at the time of his visit. Why did he lie? Banks is a front for Russian money used to deliver Brexit and the weakening of the EU. Trump delivers the weakening of NATO. Russia benefits from both! Get lost.   And now we have the Völkischer Beobachter digging up "dirt" on the Scottish judges who stood up for parliamentary democracy yesterday! One likes Jazz, Jazz!

    A wealthy individual can set up a fund for him and his rich Tory mates to invest in! Moggs investment company does exactly that day in day out.
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    Ah the Völkischer Beobachter of Brexit is also "on message" I see. 
  12. Brexit: The fallout

    I can't believe the entire extent of the Operation Yellowhammer documentation extends to a whole 6 pages. There should be much more and if there isn't then God help the UK.   It should be noted that this document is ostensibly the exact same one as scooped by the Times a couple of weeks back. What has changed? The date and the heading. The heading used to say "Base scenario" now it talks of worst case. How dumb do they think people are? Very is the answer and they are correct.   The Daily Mail and Telegraph front pages make no mention of the Scottish court ruling yesterday. These rags are largely why the UK is in the mess it's in now.

    Follow the money.

    Oil refineries I read elsewhere.

    Ironically the Scottish-English border would be much easier (practically speaking, not for people who need to cross it) to police than the one in Ireland. It's shorter, straighter, more remote, has far fewer crossings and has historical precedent as being an actual border with a wall and everything.
