Brexit - Creating a Cuntocracy - Now with 4d chess option


#9783

An explanation of yesterday’s People’s Vote shenanigans. It really is 4D chess apparently.

Even Gina Miller was against it.

I don’t think last night was the time to lay down this amendment,” she told the Today programme.
“Yesterday was about extension and the day before was about taking no-deal off the table.
“You have to try to exhaust all the other options first, and if Parliament can’t resolve it, it’s at that point that it goes back to the people.”

This had the sort of slick co-ordination the government whips or Chris Grayling would be proud of.

Maybe we really are doomed.

To be fair the UK is a depressingly long way down that road already. And the EU’s record on, how shall I put this, ‘accommodating’ iffy financial practices is not the best (accession of Greece to the Euro, the fact that not even their own Court of Auditors has been happy with their books, although that is improving https://fullfact.org/europe/did-auditors-sign-eu-budget/, etc).

Fixed

Doesn’t matter a fuck what we do then really… Didn’t someone write a song about that?


#9787

Oh no.

Obviously the look of a man with a full thoughtful understanding of international economics.

To be fair to him, he wouldn’t look out of place in a gathering of international economists. In fact he looks remarkably ordinary compared to many of them (or academics in general). However, as soon as he had opened his mouth to speak you would realise he was the oddest one out in the group.

Interesting that he hasn’t put any of it down to politicising his business and therefore alienating a proportion of his customer base.

I certainly won’t set foot in one of his pubs willingly on point of principle.

Got one his mags the other day

Priceless Brexit quote - from UKIP-ex Suzanne Evans….

“The problem we have got is MPs voting with their own consciences and beliefs”


#9794

This isn’t real…?


#9795

Sadly it is


#9796

I find myself asking this a lot these days… Reminds me of Armando Ianucci saying he couldn’t have written half of this shit in the Thick of It because people would have dismissed it as too far from reality…


#9797

Great to see that tree sprouting cash again;


#9798

Getting the DUP on board may still not be enough to get this deal through no matter how much spaffing Hammond is prepared to do.


#9799

How many muffins are we talking about here?


#9800

Thirteen?


#9801

Nor his replacement of European drinks with cheap British knock offs. it’s like going to one of those cheap Spanish all inclusive hotels, the drinks look familiar but taste fucking gopping.


#9802

Holy fuck, that much? :open_mouth:
