    The drowning man is clutching at straws- a British Government enacts laws to leave the EU with some members of that very same government actually calling for a complete severance and now “they will make clear who’s fault it is if it comes to pass”. So it was a threat they were unprepared to carry through? A bit late for that.

    German factory orders down 4%, this is your moment. Announce on Twitter UK is leaving the EU immediately and because EU has treated you very unfair, put an additional 25% tariff on all EU products starting August 13th.

    Time for our steely-eyed negotiators to strike now. We all know they need us more than we need them, the prospect of a no-deal will fill them with such horror that they will cave in to our legitimate demands. Rule Britannia!

    If only the French didn't have nuclear weapons. Then we could negotiate from a genuine position of strength.

    Will Dominic Raaahhhb go down in history as The Minister For Exiting The EU who drove the burning clown car off he cliffs at Dover? He’s going to join the pantheon of fame along with DaveCam, Bojo and DD.

    Article 8 of the Lisbon Treaty states that the EU must “develop a special relationship with neighbouring countries, aiming to establish an area of prosperity and good neighbourliness, founded on the values of the Union and characterised by close and peaceful relations based on cooperation”.

    So we've got them then? If we don't get a preferential deal we can take the case to the ECJ.

    But, but ... no deal is better than a bad deal and according to the ERG, any deal is a bad deal. Why are the Telegraph upset?

    I've been adding 'a's to his name with each farcical announcement.

    He's Dominic Raaaaaab so far.

    The co-operation and values of the Union bits are the issues there, no evidence of the former and less of any sort of values from the Brexit Light Brigade so far.

    It f*ing would be if some of us hadn't voted out based on a pack of lies and impossible promises and handed the keys to a set of knobheads who intend to destroy the place.

    Question is, will the motor land with a crunch or a splash? Will Treeza be back seat driving or will she have bailed by that point?

    You tend to specialise in faux humour, sir, so I tend to ignore it.

    Your 'knobheads' have been determinedly striving to bring us the Brexit that you actually want - i.e. no Brexit at all, or a Brexit of total subservience to the EU/EC. In order to do this, 'knobhead'-in-chief T.May has engaged in eye-watering levels of duplicity that have served to progressively enraged the 17.4 million who voted to leave the European Union, whilst digging herself into an ever-deepening hole in which she is simultaneously infuriating everyone else.

    The lies and the impossible promises go on and on. She tells us all that we will be 'leaving the EU, leaving the SM and leaving the CU, whilst simultaneously actually attempting to do just the opposite, and thinking that nobody will notice.

    In which case I sincerely hope that they succeed. If they do, I will applaud them from the rooftops and celebrate with French wine imported without import tariffs.

    So if she can't deliver this, then what version of the impossible dream do you want to see?

    To be fair, many of the Leave campaign, including Johnson, Gove, Cummings and Farage said we could either stay in the SM & CU or 'have exactly the same deal' after we left the EU.

    These were also 'impossible promises' that leave voters bought as 'project fear' when Remain brought up this particular example of a total lack of understanding of the EU processes that we helped write.

    Most of us 'remain' voters said a vote to leave the EU was a vote for a hard Brexit. The only difference between leave and remain is that remain voters understood clearly the consequences of such a move while leave voters dismissed (and still dismiss) it as 'project fear'.

    'Project reality' starts next March.

    Computer: show me a painfully accurate metaphor for Brexit.


    The "sir" thing is currently very much favoured by Katie Hopkins, and other far right twunts, so I trust you're joking.
