I’ve thought about that as well. The problem is he has to hold an election soon because he has no governing majority. His best chance I think is to sweep up the Brexit Party votes and that can only happen before the end of October. Hence the posturing.

1. Brexit has taken another strange turn with the announcement (again) of the end of FoM on October 31, the government’s rejection of the previous government’s interim approach to FoM, and the promise of an as yet unspecified approach. So what’s going on?

I thought it was mainly due to diesel.

I remind you only around 30% support no deal over remaining - and my view is that this number will fall when the consequences are known.

Also it strikes me that the “What did you know and when?” question in the inevitable public enquiry will be very difficult for Johnson to answer!

Or rather than underlining things from a news article you could read the document - and certainly don’t reply to me again until you’ve read it.

Could you quote the section of the report which says this? I can’t see anything that supports your assertion but I only read it quickly.

The source is the government of Mr Johnson.

I think your judgement is wrong. Remember that at least 70% of the population do not support no deal and are not prepared to endure hardship for the cause. 3/4 of the country will be looking for someone to blame. That’s also in the document, under ‘threat to social cohesion’.

If you read the report, you’ll see that this is the central planning scenario. It explicitly states this is the most likely scenario in governments view, and not the worst case.

I don’t think so. If Johnson knowing reduces the country to chaos I don’t think many voters will look beyond No 10 for a scapegoat. In this case of course the scapegoat will actually be responsible !
