    Nothing to do with Brexit.

    Move along please.

    The fact that Japan has signed a trade deal with the EU to allow import of vehicles more relevant.

    Which would explicitly exclude the UK post Brexit

          We have now received some Farage thing - straight in the bin.

          My wife also received a "personal" letter from Vince Cable.

          "Dear -----,

          It is now nine years since we enabled David Cameron to form a government. The rest as they say is history."

          (it did not say)

            I was musing earlier about where we'd be if the Referendum had been a narrow win for Remain.

            Leavers wouldn't have given up but perhaps, like the Scottish nationalists, would have decided to take a bit of a breather and wait until they could re-establish some momentum.

            Cameron goes on with Osborne at the Treasury. The economy grows respectably but austerity and spending restrictions still generate criticism.

            Corbyn's leadership still has many internal Labour Party critics, the exact strength of his current position determined by local election performances and reactions to new Government initiatives.

            The Liberals have yet to bounce back from the 2015 GE disaster and continue to languish in the polls.

            Cameron has announced the date of his resignation and the Conservative leadership campaign is underway a year ahead of the next GE. Osborne is the overwhelming favourite to win.

              Did anyone in Scotland get a similar one from the SNP saying it's 40 years since we inflicted Thatcher on you?

                That's a really silly and utter bullshit Labour Party nonsense story, Guy.

                  Corbyn, Findlay & Leonard were bringing it up this spring as well. 40 fucking years ago and a bogus factoid anyways. Corbyn is worse than fucking useless on The Scottish Question, and the Lexit faction now in charge of Slab will ensure their oblivion just as surely as Blairite Kezia types.

                      Same week that Trump visits. She really hasn't thought it through. Again.

                        More to do with political inequality than Brexit, though the latter was frequently touched upon, but Newsnight's guests to kick the issue around was a bit of a classic line-up: Peter Hitchens, Will Self, Bernard-Henri LÚvy and Michelle Dewberry!

                          Fuck sake Newsnight.

                            It was a cracker tonight. Maitlis was interviewing UKIP Deputy Leader Mike Hookem (the one who chinned a fellow UKIP MEP) and was pretty much laughing in his face when he tried to answer her questions. Then Stephen Smith got Nigel Farage to admit to "35 years of self-abuse".

                                Each of whom were profoundly annoying and nowhere near grasping the issues at hand.

                                  Haha! Actually, I think that he is a businessman now.

                                  I remember when Doobs came to celebrate in front of us after a victory while suffering from an attack of Bell's palsy. Bloody terrifying, he looked!

                                    Indeed and pretty much par for the course. Giving someone two or three 45-second, often-interrupted, slots to analyse a hugely complex issue rarely produces much food for thought.

                                      I don't understand this one at all. There's no incentive for or pressure on anyone to switch their vote.

                                        The best that I can do is that she hopes it will detract attention from and perhaps quiet the constant calls from within her party to announce her departure date. See also the fantasy of the UK being out by the summer recess, from which the 3 June date appears to have been derived.

                                          There's also the question of how it gets permission from The Speaker to go forward. One would hope he'd kick into touch ASAP.

                                            Not a surprise.

                                              I read that as, "ex Chelsea stripper".

                                                    That would be interesting, in terms of seats.
