I hope it goes ahead as theres going to be a lot of fun to be had ruining it.
Its beyond naive of them to think it's a good idea.
Oh come on there's no plans for it whatsoever are there? It's another "bridge to Northern Island" absolute bobbins story to get the tweets and memes rolling in an attempt to distract all the actual shit going on.
It's been out there for a few years.
I see I am not the only person to have Googled this this week
(The answer appears to be along the lines of "meh, sanctions or something idk")
Yeah, May floated the idea for the Brexit Festival in much the same way that a turd floated to the top of the swimming pool in East Kilbride one day and the place had to be evacuated. Much like the phantom shitter's bowels.
If a cat eats chocolate? Seems harsh!
They can have all the wasps they like, though.
Cats can have a little wasps, as a treat.
I’m sure EVERYONE will be lining up to sign trade deals with a country that agrees to something and then a few months later decides NAH we’ll pick and choose what we want.
Whatever happens I'm quite sure it will be us the public that suffers rather than all the fucking cunts involved in this entire fiasco being thrown in a FILTHY JAIL CELL like they SHOULD.
An end to peace in Northern Ireland or chlorine washed chicken? Feels like a catch 22.
Screaming at the Plastic Paddies in Congress coming through with a deal-blocker. Yas queens.
I'm sorry to say this to all the British girls here, but I am so here for the total cancellation of the UK come 1 Jan. Time for Britain's "ARTPOP", no sorry "Rebel Heart", actually make that "Forever" era.
Visions of Priti Patel, JRM, Liz Truss and Mark Francois in skimpy leather numbers performing 'Tell Me Why'.
We have no choice but to un-stan.
Oh I’m British and I’m looking forward to that as well.
Can’t wait for the Great Famine of 2021
I appreciate the appeal of imagining Rome collapsing around the ears of our current rabble, but honestly I can't see any good coming of it. It'll just make us a poorer, meaner, more racist country.
The best outcome would be for the EU to call our bluff, as they seem to be doing - Boris and co buckling at the 11th hour and making a load of humiliating concessions, thereby infuriating their core base of right wing loonies who will never be satisfied by anything but the hardest of Brexits.
I think the UK "as a country" (I appreciate the vagueness of the statement) needs a reality check on where they stand in the world in 2020, but I agree with VoR that the country falling on extremely hard times is in no one's interest. If food prices go up 20% we are all cunted except for Mr Sainsbury's.
I think having to negotiate concessions at the eleventh hour and some symbolic humiliation that you can rub in the face of Brexiteers is the best outcome, short of crawling back to the EU at some point.
The Brexiters will never be humiliated though. They are a cult. Every failure of the UK will be due to EU intransigence, meddling, bullying, what have you...
Obviously the Sinn Fein leader has been on the news a lot more again. Hard to believe that a) they went from Gerry Adams to Mary Lou Mcdonald and b) she has a 27 year old son.
I agree, but having played the game of No Deal brinkmanship, I do think an embarrassing climbdown would be the only exception.
Shit is going down in the Lords among Tories, even Brexiteers. Michael Howard has dressed Johnson down and they are threatening to change the bill significantly.
Imagine getting tangled up in a legal argument with the EU and your Attorney General is SUELLA BRAVEMAN.
I don't understand how these LUNATICS (at least publicly) think they are emancipating the nation, when in reality British history will judge them worse than OLIVER CROMWELL.
Are we surprised that Gordon Brown made sure he wasn't subject to a live mic for longer than necessary?
@Soldi, were you even born when Gordon Brown called a bigot a bigot?
Was during the 2010 campaign was it not?
Lads, lads! We've got a trade deal with Japan! It'll boost the economy by 0.07%! That'll make up for Covid AND Brexit, right? UP YOURS DELORES!!!
Liz Truss set to spend December opening up new sushi markets in Tokyo I presume?
Yes. My first election as I turned 18 the month before! I agreed with Nick, and regretted it ever since.
Well I don’t regret voting for Labour last December
And that’s only because it’s the only country I can order Parma Violets from
I wish Gordon Brown would have a moment to call someone a bigot on live TV and own it
What an utterly pointless "win". Surely the UK already had a trade deal with Japan as part of the EU so the actual headline should be "The UK HOLDS ON to its existing trade relations with Japan when leaving the EU" as opposed to making it sound like Brexit has opened up a new market.
