    Given that Liz Truss was "leading" the negotiations, it's remarkable we didn't come away with a dodgy Blu-ray player and some magic beans...

    The way they insist on dragging us into the upside down...

    Surely a U-Turn on Brexit from them now wouldn’t be that much of a shock, even to their biggest supporters. They’ve u-turned on every other policy!

    I suspect that Liz Truss is mainly delighted that she managed to get such favourable rates on tentacle hentai.

    Ed Milliband standing in for Kier Starmer today. It is very nostalgic and I am enjoying it thoroughly. He is sassier than Kier.

    They should bring back a lip synch assassin every week to eviscerate Boris.

    I have never despised a PM like I do Boris. It's deeply personal. He could implement a raft of pro-LGBTQIA+BLM policies and I would still HATE him!

    It's so deeply depressing that the bill is being (justifiably) torn to shreds from every angle, and yet it'll still pass because of their massive majority.

    wow, a prime minister that sits with arms folded and shakes his head instead of jumping at the chance to defend "his" policy. blatant example of what a game of charades the UK government is

    The worst thing about Brexit is that it makes you second-guess all your favourite popstars from the 90s. You know LSL is pro-Brexit.

    I hadn’t been feeling the reboot of Brexit so far. It had kind of been overshadowed by its dystopian spin-off series Coronavirus.

    That being said, the ratings grabbing returning character today might have got me back on board again. Might need a bit of a recap of what’s happened so far though...

    Much like EastEnders, the scenes feel spare with very few background players, the scripts have been stretched well beyond the point of belief and some of the actors are technically present but not exactly working for the money. And, much like EastEnders, the male alcoholic lead is banging everybody but his own girlfriend.

    It's the way Johnson just sits there sulking with his arms folded like a schoolboy who couldn't be bothered to do his homework. Which, when you strip it down, is exactly what he is.

    I love how jovial, optimistic Boris has been revealed to be a total PR creation. When he's under the microscope when he doesn't want to be, he's sullen and sulky.

    Imagine a world where eating a sandwich wasn't how we chose a prime minister.

    Actually, that's probably why we never see Boris Johnson eat. He probably still needs his sausages cut up for him.

    The minute I realised that just because the then Labour MP In Gloucester was shit didn’t make the Tories any good. I voted Lib Dem 2005 onwards, apart from last time tactical Labour :o

    And so it came to pass.

    Unspeakably depressing. Our country is completely fucked for the next four years minimum.

    It was always going to pass. I would say nothing suprises me concerning Brexit anymore ......but fuuuck...how quickly we got to this point.

    Apparently there is one more vote on it coming up, where they can add amendments. There were a lot of abstentions this time too “clutches at straws”
    Well we can all leave the country if we don’t like it, that should be easy enough shouldn’t it... Oh :(

    Not an awful lot as of now.

    The currency markets have, by and large, already priced in that it's going to be a shitshow, so I wouldn't expect anything massive.

    The value of GBP against the Euro is an absolute joke.

    And it has gone down in the last two weeks, my friend who did a big Euro transfer this week says it's close to 0.94 to the pound. I remember when changing 100 pounds would get you 150 euros!

    Miliband kicking fuck out of Johnson was one of my TV highlights of the year.

    My only regret is that it was in a debate. I'd much rather see Miliband setting about him using a snooker ball in a sock.

    Just think of all of the devastating improvements that would have made to Johnson’s face.

    Miliband was a class act. It’s just a shame he ate a sandwich a bit funny that one time and became unsuitable for a job currently occupied by a lazy, incompetent shagabout with hair like a child’s drawing of a Labrador.
