Re: Boris Gate

It's all treated as a game and a laugh to Johnson, with him sitting there smirking. I just felt like kicking it off his face!

He was thankfully defeated on the move to bulldoze the bill through in three days, so it wouldn't get much scrutiny. There's still no sign of an impact assessment.

He's going back to his puppet master Cummings, to see what to do next.

But will the EU allow any extra time?

Also, in other news, I see Germany is suffering the early effects of a recession.

Yes, they will grant the extension that was requested in the albeit unsigned letter.

Jim sweety ! Calm down. You know you're not supposed to get agitated with your medical conditions. Besides, we all know you are just a cuddly harmless little puppy dog really. Just chill out and relax. Just a few days to go now sweety and Boris will be leading us out of the EU and into a much better way of life for all.

Re: Boris Gate

Boris has not got the WAB through it was only approved to move to the next stage.
More importantly, the time allocated for parliament to discuss the bill was defeated.

3+ years is obviously not enough time for remainers to vacillate and think up new reasons (scams) to try and stop Brexit! Every MP has been paid (Note: not earnt) at least £250,000 over that period and what have they achieved?

Really hope a general election is the next step, we can then start to drain the swamp.

And build a new Hadrian's wall too, just as long as the Scots pay for it.
Perhaps we can impeach Boris too!

It is many years since I took part in 5 November celebrations. I am tempted this year...

Not so fast. There will be toxic waste in there and no shortage of Piranha fish, sharks, alligators and some very slippery snakes.

I'm not anxious about it.

I will be very satisfied if we get a chance to vote and get rid of MP's from all parties who reneged on their promises

Democracy will, I hope, win in the end.

Re: Boris Gate

Wonder how the Tory nationalists like Hogg will fare representing strongly remain constituencies.
Not doing it for those who oted them in, to use a favourite term of the brexiteers, traitors

Indeed, a general election will solve nothing. The only way forward is a second referendum. A revocation of Article 50 would make the most sense but would be liable to cause unrest in some quarters! What I cannot understand is the Tories' lead in the polls having cause such an almighty mess, only because the Opposition has no leader capable of resolving it.

It would make those who promised to honour the result of the referendum face up to the electorate.

Yes it would, and rather them than me:

It's potentially going to be very messy indeed.
