    Junker letter concludes by saying if we're not out before the European Parliament elections we're legally bound to take part in them.

    Comment


      If the DUP swallow this maybes eyebrows Arlene survives as leader despite her cash fer ash difficulties. Difficult to see how Full Force Orange Bastards and conduits for dirty Scottish Tory/Russian/Arron Banks money like Dodds and Wilson can save face but.

        Rees-Mogg on Newsnight being his usual cunty fucking cunt self.

        Juncker is playing hardball now, telling the UK that any extension can't go beyond 23 May, unless the UK participates in parliamentary elections. Meanwhile Maybot is pissing in the wind with "legally binding" changes which add up to the sum total of fuck all.

          This is proper emperor's new clothes stuff, isn't it?

          As far as I can tell, there's a "legally binding" statement that Britain and the EU are going to negotiate their future trading relationship which is the "alternative to the backstop". Which is what the next two years were all along.

          And the EU not agreeing to the UK statement that the UK would try and leave the backstop agreement.

              Is that Morph/Tommy from Rugrats looking presenter Cunt from Dragons Den/the Serious New Romantic haircut lady presenter actually doing anything to challenge the ERG narrative v reality?

                      Maitlis on Newsnight has just mentioned the "Canada Plus" deal.

                      THERE IS NO SUCH FUCKING THING AS CANADA PLUS. WHY IS THIS STILL A THING?

                          Evan Davies hasn't presented Newsnight for months now and Emily Maitlis is about as big a Remainer as you're likely to find. The ERG doesn't get an easy ride.

                            because the BBC are in the pockets of the Conservative party. Next...

                                There is something to be said for them having continued with the fundamental misrepresentations of material facts all the way through the process.

                                    See Maitlis referencing Canada Plus references above . Even "Remainers" in the UK (especially fucking telly) media are woefully ignorant of what is actually being discussed. Or at least feel obliged to give creedence to bullshit Leaver tropes. A fucking disservice to public service broadcasting, from the evil Kuenssberg down. Or they are at least supine and useless in the face of their fuck awful Sarah Sands/Robbie Gibb type editors. It is physically painful watching the BBC news or Newsnight from this side of the Oirish Sea.

                                    Fuck me RTE is rubbish in the main, but it's grown up news compared to the Brexit analysis youse get.

                                      I haven't even mentioned BBC Scotland who should all have a serious think about where they are going with their lives.

                                        Well, if we're talking about Newsnight, as we were, their presenters are Remainers to a man or woman, (not sure about Mark Urban but he rarely gets the gig). I mean, could it be, given how much you detest the ERG, that you don't believe they should appear on the programme or should be interrupted every few seconds? Did you think that Maitlis gave Clarke or Gethins a harder time than Rees-Mogg, because I certainly didn't? Frankly, the idea that Newsnight gives hard Brexiteers an easy ride is absolutely ludicrous.

                                          Mark Urban's an asset of the British Secret Service

                                              Doesn't appear to me as though anything meaningful has changed, but as long as the Commons thinks it has, we'll happily keep schtum.

                                                I met Sergei on a few occasions last summer and found him to be a private character who did not, even under the circumstances then prevailing, wish to draw attention to himself.

                                                  They don't ever ever ever seriously engage with the facts. They mightn't be John Cuntin Humphreys on the Today programme but there is always an element of Team Britain in the analysis, the bullshit pernicious Both Sides Balance drowning out any cogent thought, any reality based analysis (or attempt to really understand the EU position) drowned out as Cassandra moaning. I'm sure most of em are remainers, that makes the piss poor job of their presentation even worse.

                                                    Maitlis: <occasionally interrupts Rees-Mogg from his mastubatory fantasy but doesn't actually challenge him on any point>

                                                    Maitlis: <references "Canada Plus" which doesn't fucking exist>

                                                    The idea that Newsnight and the BBC, even with their remainer presenters, are opposing this shitshow in any meaningful manner is absolutely ludicrous.
