No 10 Spokes-twat now saying that if Parliament votes for a delay they will pull the Withdrawal Agreement Bill and go straight for a General Election before Christmas.

In other words "It's my ball and I'm not playing any more."

If this were the plot of a movie, critics would write it off as too far-fetched to be remotely credible.

BoJo tries to ram through his Brexit deal in three days, refuses to publish economic impact data and wants MP's to vote for it because it better than a no-deal.

A similar bill, the Maastricht Treaty, took 48 days to put through the Commons.

PM to pull Brexit bill if timetable not approved

The government will abandon its Brexit bill and push for a general election if MPs vote down the planned timetable and the EU confirms a delay to the UK's exit.

Exactly. A PM who has proven repeatedly and blatantly that he can't be trusted is basically saying to Parliament "This deal is fine, nothing for you to worry about, trust me."

In the year 2257 the PM of Great Britain will travel to Brussels to ask for an extension to Brexit. No one will know where this tradition started, but they will do it every year just the same.

Meet Dominic Slack-Oxley: the biggest source of fake news in Britain

British journalists have become part of Johnson’s fake news machine

It’s chilling. From the Mail, The Times to the BBC and ITN, everyone is peddling Downing Street’s lies and smears. They’re turning their readers into dupes.

Extension confirmed until Jan 31st.

General election, hung parliament, still no agreement on anything and around the loop we go again. And again.

Can we just cancel this misery already?
While you're at it, why not ship the Brexiteer leaders to St Kilda, one way? That'd be a sufficiently "traditional" place for the likes of JRM. They'd not even have to worry about someone wanting to "invade" their island! ;-)

I watched a bit of the debate today and every time BoJo talked all I heard is:


But he wasn't as whity, or as coherent.
