    Freudian slip from Soubry there:

    "...what it's about, is healing the great divide that has occurred in our party".

    Other MPs: "country".

      Priti Patel speaks.

      There are members tabling amendments, and rightly so. But I don’t think we should listen to, really, those that simply do not have the confidence in this House, in our democracy and also in our country going forward, along with the suggestions that we are incapable of governing ourselves. Fundamentally, we should be rejecting that.

        Deny pessimists the vote, damn right. I’m guessing her seat is safe as fuck no matter what. Scum sucking maggot.

          As I've mentioned before Patel's constituency ends a mile from my house, my MP is Tory Boy lookalike Will Quince and a few miles up the road where I work the MP is Bernard Jenkin. Help me.

            That’s some Bullshit Triangle right there

              Christ.

              Quince has likely got problems next time, at least. Might have had problems this time if Labour had already been a clear second in 2015.

              There's a nice bit near you that once had 2 of the last 3 Monday Club MPs next to each other.

                Tubby, on Channel4 now (about to start), your Grimsby people fishing for concessions...

                  Have just watched it. And I'm really glad I did: I had completely forgotten what a gorgeous Italianate tower they have in Grimsby harbour.

                          Yeah, that's exactly what she meant.

                            any of the irish contingent able to comment on the usefulness of this analogy between Brexit and the Irish Free State's "economic war" on Britain

                            Comment


                              That arose when Dev refused to pay land annuities, which were a legacy of a commission established to progressively wind-up landlordism, and the UK slapped a tariff on agricultural produce. Ultimately, Ireland got the better end of the deal, as the annuities were abolished, and the Treaty ports were handed over, allowing us to stay neutral the following year.

                                Of course, the analogy depends on the generosity of the larger party - back in the Thirties, Britain could have kept the blockade in place indefinitely, but chose not to, whereas a similar UK outcome to the Free State requires simultaneous agreement among the 27.

                                  David Davis proposing free movement for the City. I've no idea why the EU should concede that.

                                  Maybe financiers can carry cases of haddock from Grimsby with them.

                                    It makes their game more transparent that Davis has said that though. Freedom of movement for the City, everyone and everything else can go fuck themselves. Which makes it a continuation of most Tory thinking of the past 40 years.

                                        David torn to shreds in germany tonight. Still giving it the you need us more than we need you schtick.

                                        "Davis warns German audience not to put EU politics ahead of getting a trade deal - 'putting politics above prosperity is never a smart choice.'

                                        he added that the UK + EU should continue to match same rules on drugs, scientific products, and safety standards - 'Leaving the European Union should not necessarily change our approach on cooperation — even as we diverge.'

                                        To which the first question from the German press was- "if you want that cooperation, why are you leaving?"

                                            There was a good thread on Twitter. Brexit is basically an English nationalist revolution. Which because is not interested in logic or rational argument is immune to warning signs about prosperity. It will also end in tears.

                                              That is something else. Single market and customs union Brexit or chaos in the North crazy tailbacks at Holyhead/Dover and economic depression. But nah they will bail with no deal, some patched together shit like Open Skies (at massive cost to the Brits) in March 2019 or shared intelligence for the things that need to continue for all sides almost no matter what.
