Johnson's opening Brexit bid: rip out the Irish border backstop

Recommended Posts

Johnson wrote. “Time is very short.”

 

Yes, time is so short that Parliament is currently on a SIX week break. Well, as they say, best thing to do in a crisis is go on a nice holiday. They're back on 5th September but then there is the main party conferences from 22 Sept - 2 Oct, but they don't get back to Westminster until the 8th leaving 18 days until the big day.

They'll be so exhausted by then they'll need a nice break.....

The Ashes? Are you serious? How do you expect us to win the Ashes with all this Brexit uncertainty?

 

Frankly, I'm surprised the stadium isn't empty, or at the very least overrun with zombies. It certainly will be soon if we continue with this car crash, cliff edge, falling sky, scorched earth, apocalyptic, catastrophic, cataclysmic, crushing, calamitous, ruinous road to extinction that is simply inevitable if we don't hand over 39 Billion to the EU for SFA. If you don't believe me, buy The Guardian.

 

Anyway can't stop, I'm off to stock up my bunker with canned tuna and semi-automatic rifles. Over and out.

 

 

Zombies all on holiday for summer recess.

No, it's Bambridge, on the River Bam.  😂

I see 3 ways of looking at this.

 

1. He's gone soft and wants to reheat May's withdrawal treaty (relabel and soften the backstop). Very, very bad idea 🙈.

2. He's just pretending to negotiate so he can say that he tried his best and then blame the EU when we leave with a glorious, clean break Brexit. Great idea 🥳.

3. He's just pretending to favour a softer Brexit to bolster support amongst the predominantly Remain Parliament in anticipation of the impending Confidence vote. Once he's won that he'll lean back towards his more sensible, glorious, clean break Brexit. Pretty good idea 🤩.

 

Hopefully it's 2 or 3.

 

      Good  post ..    

                      My shilling is on option 1 .  

                         Dont bend ,  he will be broken,  sooner than expected .

                  BJ , back peddling , really .

                  Politics is all about survival ....

Which he knows is not acceptable to Eire or the EU.

 

Of course. It's an opening salvo, a Trojan horse, a deflection. 

 

Just as the EU know that the backstop with it's current wording will never be accepted by anyone with a brain.

 

The problem is neither one has an alternative workable option.

Why has no-one contacted Farrage?

This was all his idea so surely he has all the answers.

I know you thought this was funny, but you raise a good point.

 

Farage was the catalyst who started a new brexit party (that eventually forced the tories to hold a referendum) - so why hasn't he been invited to be an UK negotiator?

Didn't you see the way he taunted the European Commission in parliament? Very funny, even though I don't/didn't agree with his position/politics.

 

Nobody in their right mind would put a negotiator on their team who is reviled by the other side to the negotiations.
