France's Macron tells Johnson: not enough time for a new Brexit deal

Recommended Posts

Pre Brexit campaign of Boris of course was we will end up with a better deal out than in is this it then or have we got to wait a couple more months or will Corbunkel cobble together a Zimmer frame to oust him or will the EU cave in by the 14th of September would be good the last night of the proms so we can sing Rue Britannia and BoJo can wave his sand castle size union jack flag as we lock away our island for a decade as the rich aspirations claim we have never had it so good as the poor inevitably pay for it 🤔

As always, it depends on one's perspective.

 

The "ridiculous" part is that it appears Boris is only looking for a slight re-wording of the appalling EU/May WAG re. the backstop - which he will then present as an entirely new and acceptable deal.....

Or alternatively he’s making demands/promises that he knows can’t be met, choose any reason you wish for why.

 

Trying to discern Johnson’s intentions is made problematic by the fact he’s an inveterate liar.

 

His habit of not telling the truth is not the only concern, don’t dismiss the very real possibility that he simply does not know what he’s doing.

 

With Johnson fronting* this it is anyone’s guess what will happen, his words are not a reliable guide to his intentions.

 

 

(* it’s also anybody’s guess who’s actually running the show).

So you think Boris is seriously looking to leave the EU with no deal?

 

Personally I think he's looking for the same EU/May deal that changes nothing - other than a slight re-wording of the 'backstop'.....

 

I hope you're right, but doubt it....

I suspect you might be right, but then because it’s Johnson who knows.

 

Members of the ERG have stated they will voted against the deal, backstop or not.

Which begs the question, who’s running the show.

 

I’d be careful hoping I’m right, my assessment of Johnson includes the expectation he’ll dump Brexit altogether or opt for a second referendum if he believes that is best for Johnson.

 

He’s a liar, he can’t be trusted.

Liar who’s lies and being caught out lying are a matter of public record says he’s not a liar.

 

Learn from the past.

 

As somebody with a close up

personal view of a lying and philandering politician once said.

 

Well he would say that, wouldn’t he’.

Not according to the BBC or some French newspapers.

But Sky News political correspondent Tom Rayner offered a different perspective on the incident, saying it was part of a good-humoured exchange.

French media have made light of the incident, too.

"No, Boris Johnson did not insult France by putting his foot on the table in front of Emmanuel Macron," was the headline on a story by Le Parisien newspaper, which then outlines the light-hearted exchange between the two.

"Internet is quick to react - and sometimes overreact," it added.

The websites of the weekly L'Obs and FranceInfo radio similarly saw the funny side of the episode.

Having just watched that clip I can confirm that the selective nature of this post/photo is utter baloney.

Macron is just cleaning off the poodle poop.

 

And Merkel had the flags in a different order.
