Now why does that cartoon remind me of something straight from "Protect and Survive " the lower right in particular ......

And this 50p coin....presumably embossed with Boris's smiling fizzog on one side......and his posterior cheeks on the other. Plus, the wording " Friendship with all nations.....as dictated by the UK ! " on one side and " (rude word ) off EU foreigners ! " on the other.

But, the good news for the voters in the Mail reading heartlands is........Boris is getting tough on crime !.......not that their "for recreational use only " habits could possibly involve their own contribution to crime of course, pillars of society and all that.

Our dog has expressed concern however as to whether her supplies of smoked salmon and fillet steak will be affected once we leave, plus, she's demanding to see the labelling on any chicken products prior to consumption .....madam is a very discerning diner I should add.

And let's not forget that a proportion of the EU boats fishing in UK waters are actually fishing using UK quotas as UK fishermen were keen to make a fast buck and sold their quotas to the likes the Spaniards and quit the industry.

" As for the rest of the left wing guardian lobbyists GET OVER IT. WE ARE LEAVING."

Nothing like capitalisation to add emphasis to a dictat, or diktat of course,

Did this come in a telegram from the M.o.I , to be relayed thereafter, or, is this your personal wish ?

As Boris has informed a suitably bemused, overawed, beleaguered ,indifferent , Brexit saturated nation and electorate, the UK is indeed flouncing out of the EU in October....until the usual assorted rags splurge every jingoistic hyperbolic headline the day after we do, nothing is definite and there's always a glimmer of hope Boris and his grandiose plans, mainly for Boris it has to be said, may yet turn into his personal Armageddon.

Like it “Meatloaf Remainerism” (from the Grauniad)........


“An obvious problem with the alternative government plan has already emerged. As leader of the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn states that it should be led by him. Yet the Lib Dems and moderate Tories will support only a temporary administration headed by a neutral figure. The stand-off has led to an outbreak of what has been dubbed “Meatloaf Remainerism” (I would do anything to stop no deal, but I won’t do that).”

Well that's the Guardian and culture for you ORAC........and it's a very good adaptation I have to say. Can't fault it in the slightest.

However......fancy that...not every Tory is in accord with Boris......

Jack D - not a 'cheap shot'. The video referred to was the most significant learning experience in respect of flight safety and its relevance is to the present descent towards disaster, ignoring every contra-indication en-route. The crew would have claimed to be fully competent professionals, yet chose to ignore the obvious. Our present 'Leader/s' would, no doubt, claim equivalent talents.

If I had ordered the fish in a restaurant, been waiting three hours while the two chefs who had promised to cook it had quit and a third one promised to bring it in five minutes, whether it was cooked or not. All the waiting staff were arguing amongst themselves as to whether I wanted the cod, the grilled salmon,the jellied eels or the dolphin kebabs, meanwhile parts of the restaurant were on fire but nobody was taking any notice because they were too busy arguing about fish then I think I think that I would quite like to be asked if I definitely still wanted the fish.

Cornish Jack: Are you sure the aircraft you referred to earlier was an Evergreen flight? The only accidents I can find for that operator are a couple of 747s at Anchorage, a DC9 in Texas and another in India.

It could have been so much easier...the EU could have thrown Cameron a few crumbs and it all would never have happened. Alas they pished on his chips and laughed him out of court. He could have said, sod that and campaigned to leave. Whereupon a better, but irrelevant deal would have appeared and that would have been that..
Alas that didn’t happen and the electoral maths of the UK meant he had to quell the UKIP vote to win the GE with a referendum promise .. That worked better than expected which was his first clue ..
when said referendum was won/lost the next step was to agree a fudge. . Alas the EU went for hard ball. The UK folded like wet cardboard. The electoral maths of the UK finally led us to Boris and a proper Brexit. A calamity of errors that is almost amusing. And can be blamed entirely on the EU,s inablility to co promise. And in the UK the remainers inability to accept the final score. Each step has led us to a harder and harder Brexit.
In my opinion that’s good for,the UK in the long run. But how we got to where we are now from,Cameron being sent home with a flea in his ear, is laughable from the Remainer point of view.

I’d leave the restaurant without paying any sort of bill.

The UK already had a significant number of concessions that no other EU country had. And it wanted more. Cameron had a Conservative party problem “oh balls someone with more charisma is bringing up the spirit of 2 world wars and one World Cup. Quick save my party”.

The EU told him to swivel. The EU is not at war with the UK but a lot of brits wish they were at war with the uk.

Yes the EU will temporarily be economically damaged. The UK will for a very long time be damaged goods. I know the mail and the sun make think you matter on the world stage, but you really don’t anymore.

I'm sure the Brexiteers will have a good laugh at this. For once I would agree with them.

I don’t recall anyone mentioning the war, or any war... I’m pretty sure lots of Brit’s don’t want to be at war with the EU, even if the EU could actually have war . Well not yet anyway..
but I do agree the EU told Cameron the swivel. The catalyst for the whole show.
Also,the mail and the sun don’t make me think anything .. and I reckon the UK matters a tad more than you would think.

It's these simple facts that seem to get lost amidst all the noise . Maybe should be in capital letters . Similarly we hear the mantra --" let's get it done and end all the uncertainty " . Wiser heads make the point that " it " , (be it hard or soft ) will not end uncertainty but in fact be the start of a very looong period of uncertainty .

But that seems to fall on deaf ears.

​​​​​​​Yellowtriumph, I agree entirely, but Brexit is going to make leaving the restaurant quite tricky. On the subject of Cameron, if he had any decency at all he would go to his posh shed with a bottle of single malt and a pearl handled revolver.

Anyway Boris's 'strategy' is becoming clearer by the day. Led by 'Thomas Cromwell', Dominic Cromwell, sorry Cummins.
The plan is simple, promise the world. It goes down well with the Brexit voters. Money for the NHS, clamp down on crime. Blame the EU and the Paddies for everything. Next it will be immigrants. Something of a round up.

Next unfulfillable promises for the military.

Not sure how he plays it next, after all I'm not in the inner circle. But he'll find an excuse for a snap election before October, not Boris but Dominic Cromwell sorry Cummins.

You see it's obvious and I don't know why I never saw it before but an election after a no deal Brexit would be disastrous for Brexiteers. Because the consequences would be obvious and the Tories would be wiped out as even the most ardent leaver would be confronted by reality of a no deal exit.

So there has to be an election before Halloween. A majority Tory government would be better placed to deal with the unrest when the no deal reality hits.

No wonder there's more police and prison places planned. They'll be needed.

If the bookies are betting on a snap election in September I'll have some of that.

Time will tell. With Cummins in charge of Britain. I know that's what I'd do.

It is increasingly looking like it, especially when you read:

“Why women? Because I believe women have shown they can bring a different perspective to crises, are able to reach out to those they disagree with and cooperate to find solutions,” she wrote.
If Caroline Lucas believes any of that is true of the last PM (especially the ability to "reach out" and cooperate bit) then I'll have a pint of what she's been drinking.
