I never said I believe it. Suedy said laws can't be finally passed until Parliament is officially opened and doubt that will be before Christmas whoever wins the election.

Blame Cameron then.

Don't worry. There are many people who can never forgive that idiot. He's the one who decided to legislate for an advisory referendum (with a consequent lack of any threshold or provision to annul the result if the winning side broke the law) and then announced that the government would implement the result.

He is the one who, by legislating for an advisory referendum, helped the Leave campaign to get away with not providing anything remotely resembling a plan.

He is the one who did precisely nothing to promote the benefits of EU membership while he was PM. Such was his reluctance to do so that he delegated responsibility for EU matters to Nick Clegg under the coalition.

He is the one who decided that it was worth gambling the future of the country for the sake of his career.

He is the one who made no attempt whatsoever to get any of the right-wing tabloids on his side in the referendum.

That statement just helps to underline the point made by many of us countless times. A responsible press would see it as their primary duty to inform their readers rather than to promote the political views of their owners. That would have meant that they would have made it very clear that Johnson's promise was undeliverable.

The BBC are little better. They know that any attempt to suggest that anything coming from a minister's mouth is anything less than the 100% gospel truth will be denounced by the Tories and their lackeys in the press as proof of bias. Therefore, they decide to play safe and interpret their obligation to be impartial by reporting politicians' claims without comment.

Look at a map. You're both in just the same way that you can be a Yorkshireman and British.

Sure, we might technically still be European, but we'd feel a lot more belonging if we were part of the project that encompasses the vast majority of the continent.

I mean, Russians are technically European, but is there really much affinity in practice?

Actually whether you like it or not, you ARE European. EU or not, the UK is geographically part of Europe. So therefore you are both British and European even if it doesn't resonate with you.

What you're saying is the equivolent of a guy from Beijing saying "I'm Chinese, not Asian".

£120 million cost. More money wasted.

I do hope people become more aware of how much money is going to be wasted via Brexit, particularly as the election goes on. The fiscal position of the UK is likely to get a lot worse with how things are currently setting up.

Royal Mail said they will take industrial Action leading up to Christmas and the general election. It could effect Black Friday and 12th December. The union boss was asked by ITV news, why don’t you strike in January. What a daft question? laugh.gif


This will affect postal votes and Xmas mail too.

The Farage Fanclub are shedding MEPs even faster than UKIP managed with four of them (including Nancy Mogg) leaving the party / limited company.

He's also lying about getting the UK out of the transition period (where we are out of the EU but effectively everything regarding trade etc. operates as it currently is) by the end of 2020, when it is more likely to be December 2022.

Throwing NI under a bus and making them the sacrificial lamb for this deal is going to effectively put a huge strain on the peace process.

Brandon Lewis is saying now that the latest will be Dec.2020 as many of the trade agreements will be signed by July.

He's lying. Unless, of course, the negotiations will consist of the UK agreeing to everything the US, EU etc. want.

Does it matter how long it takes though? At least we'll know we're definitely leaving and there's no chance of A50 being revoked.

Had to laugh at this. He gets funnier. biggrin.gif

Boris says there'll be a boom in babies born 9 months after Brexit. He thinks the feel-good factor will be so great, bit like in 2012 at the time of the Olympics that it'll lead to a "Bonking Boom". Nine months after the olympics there was a rise in the birth rate.


Wonder if he'll lead this baby boom. laugh.gif


In an interview with the Sunday Times, he predicted that pulling out of the European Union will lead to a "big baby boom".

He claimed that Brexit will have the same positivity on the United Kingdom as the Olympics did back in 2012.

In his latest series of waffling comments, he gave the answer: "Cupid's darts will fly once we get Brexit done. Romance will bloom across the whole nation."

He continued: "There was one after the Olympics, as I correctly prophesied in a speech in 2012, it was quite amazing. There was a big baby boom."

Social media users speculated that the "bonking bonanza" would mostly come from Boris Johnson.

"No doubt spearheaded by Boris Johnson himself," said John Crace.

But when Johnson was pressed on whether he was looking to create a family with his existing family, he told the newspaper: "I am not going to make any demographic projections."
