    Even before looking at complications with Northern Ireland and the Good Friday agreement, the problem for those who properly look into it, has always been how does the UK actually do a Brexit without decimating the economy for at least the next generation. So BINO (Brexit in name only) has been a damage limitation solution for some.

    Default ... and down she goes ...

    Farage's and BJ's poison starts to work: Business confidence at its lowest point since referendum.

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...endum-deloitte

    The first-quarter survey gauges sentiment among the UK’s largest businesses in the wake of parliament’s successive rejections of Theresa May’s Brexit deal. Deloitte interviewed 89 CFOs, including 48 representing FTSE 100 companies and smaller firms on the FTSE 250.

    Pessimism about the short-term effects of Brexit remains high, with nearly half (49%) of CFOs expecting to reduce their capital expenditure and 22% anticipating having to trim mergers and acquisitions activity. More than half (53%) of CFOs also expect to reduce hiring staff because of Brexit – the highest level in more than two years.

    Since the 2015 general election, the Conservative Party and the government has been all about Brexit; everything else is way down in priority. It seems to be a sink hole for resources. Attention and public manpower are occupied by Brexit. That doesn’t look like it will change any time soon!

    Many British electors were persuaded to vote for Brexit with the promise of wonderful unicorns by people who did not have to make it reality. Instead, after reality struck home they were presented by their PM Theresa May with a Brexit deal which gave them asses. A large segment of the ruling Conservatives now think “No deal” will find these elusive unicorns no matter what the cost. Promises made before and after the Brexit referendum have been shredded.

    The UK local elections have seen the ruling Conservatives punished for their handling of the whole Brexit affair. Labour did not do well either - no doubt for their prevarications.

    The following is an old post from the end of last year but it probably captures the mood of some of the 48% who voted for remain and probably many more who have regretted Brexit since.

    Outstanding letter, thanks for sharing.

    Still worried though, that the fully deserved payback the Tory's (as well as the indecisive Labour) will get from the voting public will ultimately strengthen scum like Farrage and his BREXIT party.

    The damage is done - and the ultra-right cancer will grow.

    Ex-UKIP Party members have already joined local Conservative Party constituencies. Conservative MPs that do not favour hard Brexit or no deal are under threat of being de-selected. With the Ex-Ukipppers able to take part in selecting conservative candidates I imagine the Conservative Party could tip even more to the hard right.

    Harding has a good turn of phrase. I went from out loud laughing from imagining the Frog’s legs on the bald man’s pate to despair at the thought of his childhood with a father in a war grave in Holland. Long may Europe prosper with peaceful Co-operation.

    Default Boris Johnson going to court!

    Judge accepts the private prosecution against Boris Johnson for lying in public office:

    Unfortunately - Justice is not for free ...

    If you can, support the crowdfunding campaign to bring Boris to justice:

    Why is it so funny?

    If the allegation of lying to the public about information, of which a politician holding public office had knowledge, results in a prosecution, then it could provide precedent and have ramifications for the conduct of election campaigns for all common law jurisdictions.

    Let’s find out what the swamp is like and if the swamp can be drained.

    Did Boris vote or did he not? The waters are murky.

    The funny part is him spruiking for donations for the prosecution on Sharetrader. I'd rather burn my money than spend it on a moronic prosecution of a politician from another country. He will never be found guilty.

    Find me one politician, anywhere that doesn't lie.
