    OT: Labour are going to look so amateurish if they do end up debating the finance bill.

    He's basically saying that almost nothing will change. If you'd keep the open market, what kind of immigration will you control more than now?

    I'm surprised Carl Bildt hasn't already responded on Twitter.

    Wait a sec.

    People are interpreting this as a indication he's simply going to go for EEA status. :disco:

    And now there's a source saying that Cameron won't invoke article 50 on Tuesday..?

    Article 50 won't be invoked until we have a new PM at the earliest (3 months away).

    I don't think the EU will LET them have EEA status. Plus all the leave voters will be up in arms! They'll not be able to get away with free movement. \

    And Cameron won't invoke Article 50, it will be his successor, sometime in the autumn.

    And even then, there would have to be a good reason to.

    Is Schengen an obligatory part of EEA?

    It's not clear. It would be a matter for negotiation I expect. The EEA currently has five non-Schengen states, so it's not as if it can't work without it.

    Again, I don't understand why it would be high up on either side's shopping list.

    I don't think Boris is bothered about blocking free movement. He's fine with some sort of EEA arrangement.

    It's the random street attacks on migrants we'll probably start getting that I'm worried about.

    Plus, if Britain First were doing militia training for paramilitary attacks during a democratic referendum, just imagine how many more are going to think violence and terrorism are the only answer if they perceive that a referendum vote can be satisfied on a technicality.

    It was only a matter of time before the right started to become genuinely dangerous.

    I broadly agree with the sentiments but it's a bit JOHN OLIVER EPIC TAKEDOWN. (yes I am pissed off that I haven't got offered a Vice column yet)

    The Lib Dems were NOT IN CONTROL. The Tories were. They did what they could. If they had sole control, I absolutely 100% believe they would stand by this statement. They've never been in a position where they can actually do the good that they believe in.

    The whole belief system of the Lib Dems is about multiculturalism, integration and making good for everyone. A belief in fairness and equality for all.

    And I repeat, because it's RIDICULOUSLY important... They were in government as the minor part of a coalition. Not in full control. If the Lib Dems had been in total control, I am absolutely convinced they would have stuck by not raising tuition fees. They had to make certain allowances to get the coalition in the first place.

    What a fucking FARCE.

    But come on Boris, try to get us EEA status. I can't wait for the EU to fuck you hard with Schengen and as many refugees as Merkel has to spare! You played with fire - time to get first degree burns!

    At this point I am ready for the Queen to declare martial law, dissolve parliament and bring back Tony Blair and Gordon Brown at the head of a Provisional Government to try to sort this all out :D

    It's going to be shitty areas in cities that as a whole probably voted remain, though. I kind of feel bad about that.

    The Conservatives offered the Lib Dems the chance to abstain on tuition fees. Nick Clegg refused on the basis that it was more important the coalition was seen to be working together in lockstep.

    Not that they couldn't have given concessions in other areas during coalition negotiations in exchange for keeping their landmark promise.

    I'm thinking of starting a petition stopping cold weather payments for old people. I just need 5 signatures. Who's with me?

    The silly little BOY in my office still claims that it will all be okay in the long run. I hope he's first to lose his job here!

    (and I hope I'm still here to see that!)
