You lied before the campaign, you lied during the campaign and you're lying now.

English political elites don't know how to deal with Varadkar because a) he doesn't fit into any near Irish stereotype to which they've been accustomed with previous Irish leaders b) The Irish are now more powerful than us, which the English can't even even begin to internalise.

On what democratic basis does Farage maintain leadership of the Brexit Party? The party has no members only supporters and there is no process for electing or replacing the leader? That sounds like fascism to me.

The government’s no-deal zero-tariff policy is likely to lead to the closure of two oil refineries and a reduction in fuel availability. This disruption to all UK goods distribution and cutting off of oil for heating has never been raised publicly...

Johnson’s letter to Tusk is a toe-curling embarrassment of doublespeak. We are committed to the GFA and want to ditch the backstop which is the GFA’s insurance policy because, guess what, the backstop breaches the GFA. War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.

Worth repeating: • The current iteration of the backstop came about at the UK’s insistence. • Its indefinite nature reflects the UK’s indefinite legal responsibility under the GFA. • If Brexiters truly had “alternative arrangements” ready, the backstop would never take effect.

Other names for the backstop: ‘The necessary backstop’ ‘The best of both worlds backstop’ ‘The broadly popular in Northern Ireland backstop’ ‘The relatively economically attractive backstop’

Briefly in the UK. Turn on the evening TV news. Lead story is straight report about urgent stockpiling of food and medicines for no-deal Brexit. It’s the normalisation that is so chilling. Nobody else seems to find this extraordinary In peacetime, in a prosperous democracy

Once central, inescapable truth about the Boris Johnson letter If he and his government had the slightest confidence in "alternative arrangements" then there would not be any concern about the backstop For the backstop is only insurance for such arrangements not happening

And its not how big your gdp is or - even more laughably - gdp growth. It is how much do you import? How big a market will you be for OUR goods and services? The EU and US have similar GDP. China has GDP growth to beat the band.... but look at imports. Who's the Daddy?

This graphic shows the value of the EU single market & cooperation. Instead of being rule-takers, working together ensures European countries can help to define the terms of global trade & push for higher standards.

Here, from the same speech. Either what we voted changed to what David said "We' have to negotiate a deal" or it didn't. They want it both ways because they are lying twisting disingenuous scum.
