Ah the old Brexit Dunkirk spirit 🙂

You know Dunkirk was a bloody disaster yes?

In your eyes maybe,

I thought this one was better though.

No they aren't. They are all retired will be whinging why their pensions/dole haven't gone up and where is all that money the red bus promised them for the NHS. Should the be feeling slightly adventurous - they'll also be genuinely confused why after Brexit they aren't allowed to easily settle and retire in Spain anymore.

 

The ones who are genuinely going to make a difference now, the younger generation - have seen a great market of 400m people shut off to them, all by a soon to be dead generation.

And there was me hoping that you were going to come up with something salient, up-to-date and overwhelmingly relevant instead of 'old people' and the ubiquitous 'red bus.'

 

I am used to disappointments though. Maybe you will get used to them too. Eventually.

I'll take you more seriously if you weren't the author of the 'plucky brit/right stuff' post...

Brexiteers are made of the stuff that made Britain 'Great' and will keep Britain 'Great. They thrive on turning uncertainty and adversity into achievements and success.

 

Remainers are ALL about uncertainty, doom and gloom and going cap in hand to Brussels asking, 'Please sir, may I have some more?" And that includes the ones in uncertainty denial.

 

BTW. who on Earth is Daniel Cummings when he's at home?

He may well be gone, but he'll be back. Reported on LBC this am The Tories are polling 37%, Labour 22%. Even more remarkable Boris is polling 32% with young people under 30 years of age to Corbyn's 22%. Remarkable, and very bad news for Corbyn. Easy to see why Labour are using every excuse possible to avoid an election. They can't hide forever though. 

Corbyn is too old to be PM.

He should be too old to work at all in anything but clown world.

DUP says it cannot support Boris Johnson's Brexit deal

PM’s proposed deal suffers another blow as party objects to customs and VAT terms

 

The Democratic Unionist party is threatening to scupper the Brexit deal that Boris Johnson is on the cusp of agreeing with the EU.

On the morning of a crucial EU summit in Brussels, a joint statement from the DUP’s leader Arlene Foster and her deputy Nigel Dodds, explicitly says the party cannot support the deal that is close to being finalised.

The pound fell 0.5% against the dollar and the euro within minutes of the announcement.

Don't agree for the obvious reason that a deal could well be passed by parliament. Whether that's true or not is irrelevant, but it's nearer reality than the above statement.
If its not true, then hardly obvious.

No, no, no... the fact that the DUP have concerns over how VAT accounting can be handled to everyone's satisfaction is far, far removed from anything scuppering anything.

 

Here's an extract from the official comment from the DUP (my emphasis)

 

"As things stand, we could not support what is being suggested on customs and consent issues and there is a lack of clarity on VAT.

We will continue to work with the government to try and get a sensible deal that works for Northern Ireland and protects the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom."

 

Straw clutchers... reading things that simply aren't there.

it done over & out for the moment ….. next extension or nothing , I don't see any solution in this short few weeks day's

can not be done technically as 27 country heads have to be informed if ANY changes could be made to "sweeten" the DUP ...

Still spouting the tired old cliches about Brexiteers? No wonder Remain lost the Referendum with such a poor understanding of the Leave demographic.

 

It's amazing that Remainers still haven't learnt that insulting people doesn't make them change their minds. Should you be fortunate enough to get another referendum, no doubt you'll be in a state of shock when Leave wins again. Maybe you should get out and talk to some Brexiteers face to face (no doubt you'd drop the insults when you're not hiding behind a keyboard) and find their real reasons for leaving. You might be surprised.

It's time to test how airtight the Benn (Dover) surrender act is.

 

Stop wasting more time negotiating with people who have no interest in reaching a mutually beneficial deal. Get ready for a clean break Brexit.

The EU has an interest in a deal but when they talk with BJ they have no idea if parliament will accept what was agreed upon. The DUP have just rubbished BJ's proposals so an extension is due, BJ's speaker has said the letter will be sent.
