    Mullin was a bit of a harmless auld arse that hadn’t been expected to take Slab Fortress Kdy, so no great mischief losing him from the SNP benches, but Laird is a whole new level of Pure Idiot Fife bullshit.

        Interesting comment by May just now - whole UK would be bound by SM to avoid regulatory checks with NI!

            It was in the Guardian live thread - GB would voluntarily agree to remain aligned to the SM during the backstop to avoid regulatory checks.

              But only in the event of the backstop that should never be used. Thought she’d begun conceding on SM for a second.

                I don't see anything new in what May said. It's implicit in how the backstop is structured.

                  Labour seem to have confused a few people by saying no backstop would be needed. Is that them backing the Single Market on withdrawal?

                      The spokesman said that Labour wanted to consider the deal that the government had negotiated, and then submit its “alternative Brexit plan” at the time of the meaningful vote. Under that party’s plan the UK would remain in “a comprehensive customs union” with the EU which would “make unnecessary largely any kind of backstop arrangement”.
                      Sounds like the same old cake they've been peddling for months.

                        Is Corbyn an establishment Mole? A double agent with the mission to first embarrass the Left, and then incapacitate the labour Party?

                          No.

                            Another week of this and I'll be looking for people to prove unprovables.

                              Sturgeon's position at least seems more consistent than Corbyn's - push for an EEA + CU relationship if the Commons will allow, and then for a second referendum if that proves impossible.

                              Comment


                                Norway plus customs is the only alternative to May’s deal the EU would be willing to entertain. Which is why I think Labour will reject it in favour of more Racist Cake.

                                    God they love a bit of Yannis on BBC don't they? Go on there Yannis, be sexy and tell us that the EU is undemocratic. Tell them how you tried to unsuccessfully tried to dictate terms to a lender of last resort, when the previous democratically elected Greek Govts hadn't lived up to the terms of previous loans.

                                      Every time I think he has a point, I remember he is a stout defender of the Sleep Rapist, and I doubt everything else he says.

                                        Well, he was up against a politically motivated lender that wasn't actually interested in getting any money back.

                                              The rise of populism across Europe, which is being documented by the Guardian this week, has everything to do with the failure of Europe’s flagship project. [the Euro]
                                              That would be why the current wave of populism started in Hungary and Poland, neither of which use the Euro. Do better.

                                                Yep.

                                                He seems to think the UK was in the Eurozone too. Otherwise what's the relevance of the stuff about Italy?

                                                Comment


                                                  Note his spectacular lie (the same as Kippers tell) that the "same people said we should join the Euro". That'll be news to Simon Wren-lewis and a few others.

                                                  Comment


                                                    Surely all forms of political party aim to be populist? They aim to win the popular vote.

                                                    I think the centrist liberal catch-all term 'populism' conveniently lumps the likes of Bernie Sanders in with Geert Wilders.

                                                    Grauniad can go and do one.
