    Johnson would't have been the leader. Philip Hammond would have been Chancellor.

      Hmmm. The ERG/Gove/Johnson/Cummings axis would have brought it all down anyways.

        Raab's visit to Washington went well:

          That's the Advocate General for Scotland gone from Johnson's mob now, unable to stand over the general shitting over what passes for rule of law in the failed state. Fuck knows who he'll bring in as replacement, I hope it's fucking Adam Tomkins.

              We're looking at a Chicago school totally deregulated economy come January 1st aren't we?

                That’s the - for want of a better word - plan.

                Or a Russia style kleptocracy.

                  I rather suspect you already have a Russia style kleptocracy. Here in Australia the Libs appoint fossil fuel shills to secret committees to decide on COVID recovery projects and act surprised when the secret committees select fossil fuel COVID recovery projects.

                    In which case, we can expect ahistorical gems like this from the FCO next year:

                      I'd. love to compare that with the FCO's description of how the British left Kenya- or indeed Britain's involvement with the Iraq war

                        Toby Young has abandoned Johnson, as he is more Cromwell than Prince Hal:

                            I knew someone who was in the Polish Army when the war started. He said that they spent more time fighting the Russians than the Germans.

                              I have told the story here before of my sixth form Russian teacher who was an ethnic Ukrainian living in Soviet-occupied Poland who was deported with her village to Karelia by the invading Soviets.

                                  c. insistence on paperwork requirements (export declarations) for NI goods going to GB, thereby compromising the principle of “unfettered access” in Article 6 of the Protocol;
                                  So it will definitely be triggered then.

                                    He must have been on the eastern side then, because they spent 36 days fighting the germans and nineteen fighting the russians.

                                      Yeah, so? He was one of the many Poles (amongst others) who made their way to the UK either during or after the war.

                                        I'm not saying anything other than it he must have been in the part of Poland nearest Russia for that to have been his personal experience. The poles killed 12 germans for every Russian fatality, but if he was stationed in the East he would have been fighting a desperate rear guard action against the Russians, and the Germans would have barely crossed his mind. The big caveat that military historians always have to put on soldiers personal accounts is that this is what the war looked like from their individual perspective, and while what they saw might be true for them, it may not be reflective of the wider experience.

                                          And as it's part of a joint trust with County Durham, Memorial Hospital Darlington is also on enhanced measures

                                              I would imagine at the very least TSB and Santander would go for Spanish authorisation (maybe TSB more likely), given they have Spanish parents.

                                                So the TSB didn't remutualise then?
