    I think perhaps he UK got the short end of the stick there. Or maybe it doesn't matter.

    Can I just confirm? When you use the term: 'hard remainers', whilst not identifying as a Brexiteer yourself, how are you using the term? Is it those who just say 'we must remain in the EU come hell or high water' ignoring or unaware of the EUs neoliberal character, or also people who just oppose Brexit on justifiable grounds?

    I can see justifiable reasons for both remaining and leaving, but the thing about the 'democratic vote' sticks in my craw because it wasn't democratic it was gerrymandered from the start. And on the back of decades of propaganda. The referendum itself was not even put forward in good faith it was a mandate gamble by Cameron.

    That's an outright lie. Leave lied about the consequences and now you're still lying. The vote was non binding cos leave knew they could never achieve the figures a binding vote would require so n reality, it was a vote under false pretences. Plus, had it been a binding vote, then it would have bene set aside because of the Leave campaigns illegal activities. I don't care what your politics are, it was a grossly stupid idea and is the equivalent of the mid life crisis bloke ending up living in scratty bedsit and seeing his kids every other weekend and no amount of prevarication and utter twaddle from the likes of you can change that. You were conned b y a bunch of disaster capitalists and the idea it was about sovereignty were complete and utter moonshine.

    I think auto-correct must have changed "idiotic" to "iconic".

    Just so long as you ignore almost certain funding of the leave campaign by a hostile foreign power, minor detail if you are a leave fundamentalist and don’t give a damn about democracy.

    I remembered years ago reading about some dodgy LibDem MP called Hancock, old and no catch himself, being targeted by a young attractive Russian woman called Ekatrina in a Russian honey trap operation. He then spent a lot of time helping another young attractive Russian woman as her MP, also called Ekatrina who had married a local geriatric living on benefits.

    Next time she turns up, husband number 2 is none other than Arron Banks and Banks goes on to have multiple undeclared meetings with Russian embassy officials while making the largest political donation in British history to the Leave campaign.

    Funnily enough the Tory party didn’t see fit to look into this at all, maybe Boris was told that there was nothing to worry about by his friend Evgeny Lebedev at the party in Italy where he forgot to take his security detail and turned up at the airport the next day apparently still intoxicated, as you do when you are foreign secretary.

    Eating grass is a possibility. There's next to nothing in the supermarkets just now. Big holes in the meat aisle, no semi in milk, and veg racks only half full. I might have to take up fishing.

    Unelected adviserette to the Board of Trade Daniel Hannan is bullshitting about the prospects of a US trade deal and attempting to contradict Democratic Congressman Brendan Boyle, a close ally of the President, who’s saying it’s not even on their agenda. He compounded his idiocy by calling the Congressman an US-Irish lobbyist.

    Johnson’s team are clueless about influencing the US and in fact shoot themselves in the foot and further alienate the Biden administration with their high handed petulance over Ireland.

    His body language looks awkward. The man has no style...or substance. Why is he even Prime Minister?

    Even the demented Express isn’t attempting to polish the turd,

    “Boris meets Biden LIVE: Ireland border ruled out by President as US-UK trade deal dashed”.

    But they managed to redirect their furious eruptin’ at Nancy Pelosi,

    Keep your nose out of it!' Britons rage as Nancy Pelosi issues US deal ultimatum”.
    BRITONS have reacted with fury after Nancy Pelosi threatened to block a UK-US trade deal.
