Not sure it has support from Veradker. He's happy to have a deal with backstop replaced (it's only there as a fall back anyway) however it requires UK to find a solution.

At the moment there's still no workable solution being proposed.

The mood noises seem to be changing as the DUP reevaluate their political clout with the Tories. Reaching a position where they will ultimately have control through the devolved assembly might now suit them but its fraught with potential knock on problems

Yes, the most immediate being getting the devolved assembly operating. Second they share power in it, similar to holyrood its not designed for a majority party.

Bonking Boris has gotten himself involved in a scandal over £126,000 of public money paid to an American businesswoman whilst Mayor of London.

Quote

Mr Johnson was a regular visitor to Ms Arcuri's flat in Shoreditch

OK it's all a bit nudge, nudge, wink, wink, - but what made me chuckle was her description of herself as a "legitimate businesswoman". :oohlala

The Conservative Party is in turmoil trying to work out a response to the Supreme Court's ruling - their MPs have been told not to say anything at present although Mark Francois has been on TV to call the ruling a disgrace.

Where exactly is BJ at present  - is he still at the UN meeting in NY or is he winging his way back over the Atlantic? Answer - Still in NY.

Didn't Bercrow look like the cat who'd got the cream?

When the Tories elected BJ to be their leader in July prorogation of Parliament was already high on the agenda and they had no alternative response to yesterday's SC ruling than "we respect the SCs ruling but disagree with it" - they're now so far down the "Boris vs The Establishment" road they've no alternative this side of the forthcoming GE.

The opposition have the numbers.
Call a VONC, get rid of Boris and put in the interim government.
What exactly are they waiting for?
It's almost as though they are scared of how the electorate will respond.
I'm thinking corbyn prefers shouting from the sidelines rather than achieving power and implementing his solutions.

McDonnell also becoming the main media spokesperson for Labour instead of Corbyn.

I think you know the answer to this in common with most of us. The opposition parties want a cast iron no leaving without a deal position before doing so. With a government playing fast and loose.. What's to stop them leaving and essentially saying.. Well suck it up guys.

I think you are right.

If he really wanted it, he could get a VONC this week, get into power next week and kill Brexit dead.

He doesn't want to be remembered as the man who did that. Either that or he really is afraid of being in charge. It's all very odd.

I can't be bothered finding the link and everyone's probably already seen this but there's a funny LBC (?) radio interview with Nigel Farage where someone called in to talk to him. I'll paraphrase roughly how it went.

Caller: I want to thank you for all your great work in politics over the years Nigel.

Nigel: Thank you.

Caller: I used to be an ardent Remain supporter for many years but following a monumental incident in my life, I have completely changed my opinion and now support a no deal Brexit.

Nigel (nodding): Hmmm. If you don't mind me asking, what was the monumental incident which changed your mind?

Caller: I was kicked in the head by a horse Nigel.

 

Now that was funny.

Dangled the bait, massaged Farage's ego then delivered the punchline

The last thing ardent Brexiteer Corbyn wants to do is kill Brexit stone dead. He can't even bring himself to take a stance instead he wants to "stay neutral " until after a GE. He's a fekin lunatic as bad as Boris.

Watched Boris in a couple of interviews, he doesn’t really come across as a confident, knowledgeable man. He’s obviously a clever individual but if he had the skills in front of camera as Farage does, I don’t believe he’d be in the pickle he’s in.
If he joins forces with Farage at the GE, then I believe they’ll sweep the rest aside.

Corbyn knows Brexit is killing Labour though. Stick to remain and completely obliterate their core vote in NE England, or go with leave and be the next in the endless line of failures who can’t sort it out. The PM job has been a poisoned chalice since Cameron called that referendum, it’s no wonder he bolted for it when Leave won, and it’s no wonder May and now Johnson are found out as useless cunts.

It’s easier from a Lib Dem perspective because they got ripped apart at the 2015 GE. They couldn’t sink much lower, so casting themselves as the big Remain party was only going to help them get back up to a better level. Labour have plenty of room to sink further, and any decision made will cause that. No wonder they are sitting on the fence at every moment.

More chance of a pact with Labour ie Zilch. Farage is an utter charlatan who should be nowhere near a Parliament and hopefully won't be. An opportunist of the highest order.
