    Doris is not as incompetent as he poses but he's fatally deluded and is hurtling towards his own political disaster. He has twin goals but the main one is to try and manoeuvre himself to win the coming election. His 2nd plan involves the delusion that the EU will fold on the 'backstop' if a 'no deal' breksh1t looks unavoidable. What he's heading for is no EU folding and looking at defying the legal requirement to request an extension.
    If we get to this point his only way out will be to pull out a rabbit from his blond beehive that will amount to the original May backstop and Arlene and Sammy under the bus. This will be an interesting lesson for the DUPEs.

    Queen Trains Corgis to Attack Boris Johnson If He Ever Comes to Palace Again

    By Andy Borowitz

    September 13, 2019

    LONDON (The Borowitz Report)—Queen Elizabeth II has trained her corgis to attack the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, if he ever comes to Buckingham Palace again, palace sources have confirmed.

    For Johnson, who recently suffered another setback involving a dog, the news that the Queen was prepping her beloved canines to eviscerate him was just the latest indication of his precipitous fall.

    The Queen reportedly supervised the corgis’ training herself, instructing them to lunge at Prince Charles, who wore a shaggy yellow wig for the exercise.

    “When the corgis tore into Charles’s trousers, the terror in his eyes was palpable,” one observer said. “The Queen looked very happy.”

    Although the Queen has been publicly tight-lipped on the subject of Johnson, a royal source indicated that she was heard muttering “that lying bastard” when the embattled Prime Minister appeared on television this week.


    There’s only room for one unelected ruler in this country,” she reportedly added.

    Bolton out? Bang goes democracy and happiness for sh*tholes Iran, Afghanistan and China.

    On the positive side...........

    If Bolton ('have my say in due course') brings his book out at the height of the 2020 campaign it will annihilate Trump.

    I think Bolton was one of the few people in the world with the will and the power to start WW3. It's newsworthy alright.

    To be fair, firing that f#cking psychopath Bolton was probably the smartest thing Trump ever did.

    Farage's offer of a pact on the basis of no-deal, Johnston rejection of it and the likely delay of the election until November combined put Boris in a very difficult corner. Farage is going to outflank him to the right preventing him taking Labour seats in the midlands and north of England and he has already sacrificed 25-40 seats in Scotland and the southwest to LDs and SNP.

    fitzy73 a few weeks ago you seemed to accept the narrative that Cummings was playing 4D chess. I think he just throw his ludo pieces off the board to see if he can do any better with the snakes and ladders on the other side.

    November election with a hung Parliament and Labour as the largest party is my bet now. Minority Labour gov't with SNP backing and LD abstention. 2nd referendum on May deal plus Labour single market amendments and remain to be held between Easter and summer next year.

    If you have a few quid under a mattress buy call options on Sterling at EUR1.30 for 1 July next year (I'd be fairly sure that's what Somerset Asset Management or whatever Rees-Moggs outfit is a called are already doing).
    I'm beginning to think Cummings isn't as clever as he thinks he is. However, I have no doubt that he has a few more tricks up his sleeve.

    I can't see Labour being the biggest party. The FPTP system means that even on 50% of the vote Labour and LD would fall short of a majority. I really believe they will need the SNP, and their price for coalition will be indyref2.

    A lot can happen between here and November though.

    Another fine example of how the Irish media are becoming over interested in things outside Ireland that have little
    if anything to do with us. TV 3 news has a lead story on the 8pm news of Trump firing someone in his staff. It’s ahead of a report on Vaccines and how the Government is going to tackle the mis-information on them.

    Presumably I missed the Brexit stuff, where nothing of consequence was repeatedly reported on.
