?

Will we have a brexit?

  1. Yes - A fully independant Britain making its own way in the world (apart from scotland).

    17.1%
  2. A Semi-Detached Norway type deal

    31.3%
  3. No - 2nd referendum and/or face saving fudge to let us slink back in feeling a bit fucking stupid

    51.6%

    Problem with the backstop, but more positive about Johnson's plan.

    PM's proposals meet EU objectives better than backstop: David Trimble - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk

    Indeed, I wasn't trying to be (a)cute, telling somebody that is being obtuse that they are being obtuse -in the most obtuse manner I can think of, is to me an instinctive reaction

    It's been a long time since the UK negotiated free trade deals. A very long time.

    Lots of obfuscation garnished with jingoistic nastiness mainly.

    Well, there was that thing where Boris Johnson was holding a coffee cup and then he wasn't.

    I’d say it’s becoming increasingly clear that Dom, DeFeffel and Nigel actually want a no-deal because of their speculator backers’ short positions in the markets. But that’s just me.

    You've been saying that for a lot longer than two weeks.

    A recent ComRes poll showed 51.2% of brits are in favour of a no deal Brexit with 48.8% favouring a delay.

    Aside from that, lots of shouty rhetoric.

    One thing that might not have found space in the news yet:
    Government last week sent out a letter to a bunch of charities & NGOs working with refugees in the UK who are currently in receipt of funding from an EU grant called the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) to say that in the event of no deal on 31st their funding (used to help people access stuff like housing & mental health support) would stop immediately. This despite having reassured them for months that this funding would continue regardless of brexit outcomes. Didn't say why they've made this u-turn.
    If anyone's got a minute to sign this its a letter from refugee council asking that gov reverse this decision:
    Emergency action: sign the letter - Refugee Council

    Even so, the poll finding is something of a record of just how far that Overton window has been shifted.
