    That’s probably the case if the UK leaves. I’m sure Farage will moan if the UK ends up striking a deal with the EU, but once the country is out then he won’t have much support.

    It’s so amusing watching the outrage today over what Boris has done. Remain have broken many constitutional rules to frustrate the Brexit process but when someone else tries it then they’re furious. Parliament has had 3 years to resolve this and have gotten nowhere which is why Boris is absolutely right to remove them from the equation and deliver the result of the 2016 referendum.

    Personally Im still not convinced we will leave. i think it will be such a transformational month, we will end up looking for another 6 months.

    Nevermind Parliament blocking Brexit. Looks like Boris is about to block Parliament. Glorious!

    Its about 1pm here now and its kicking off big time on the radio. This is the big showdown! if Boris gets through this, he’s won. If he doesnt, remain has won.

    sounds simple, but its boiling down to that.

    I’m not so sure, I think he’s won either way. If the courts, or Parliament find a way to stop him, he’ll just call a General Election and campaign as Parliament verses the People. He’ll win by a landslide.

    He’s killed farage off, thats for sure.

    So since we posted this we’ve got the British kidnapping an Iranian tanker and now the Iranians taking a British tanker. Could be the start of something really nasty, especially with Trump in charge.

    And Boris is about to be crowned PM! Could it get any more dangerous ???

    America are making moves to stop the tanker leaving Gibralter with a decision due on Thursday says Sky News. I wonder what thats all about, it was the British who stopped it initially, why are they happy to let it go ? and why is Uncle Sam so keen to keep it when they wouldnt help before ?

    SO its sailed – strangely with a new name ?! – but Gibralter said the US had no right to keep it. Trump, in his wisdom has said he doesnt care because Iran “hasnt taken any of our tankers”. Well thats alright then. As long as US tankers are good, no problem.

    I wonder how long it will be before the british flagged one, complete with poor bloody indian crew on board, see the outside world…

    Its brilliant! The tanker is now on the move and the oil “has been sold”!! we dont know who to, the US dont want it sold to anyone, but Iran is just running the show here. I wonder what the response will be… https://news.sky.com/story/oil-on-tanker-released-by-gibraltar-has-been-sold-says-iran-11794546

    It’s really beginning to look like no deal is happening! Today Boris meets Angel Merkl but she has already said that they dont give a toss about continuing discussions if his “drop the Irish Backstop” line isnt altered. I really think it might happen now and it could be really weird, with food shortages, medicines and the rest of it. No one actually knows but its really coming to a head!

    And now even Macron is up for the 30 day challenge! Its like Dry January on Steroids!

    You couldnt make this stuff up. The West Coast Main Line, is going to be run by a company from Scotland (soon perhaps a seperate country) and the Italian Government (!), check it out on Sky https://news.sky.com/story/first-trenitalia-to-take-over-west-coast-main-line-rail-services-11785017

    This is just ridiculous. I am all for privatization instead of nationalization but this means the public owner of Italy effectively now runs part of the UK rail network!! its absurd!

    Independent today pointing out that now all main lines are partially run by foreign government owned companies, crazy. Richard Branson said he was “bitterly disappointed” to be losing the franchise, I didnt realize he had had it for 23 years.

    She’s been blown out of the water with this, saying it has to be a women only cabinet but then failing to include any ethnic minorities so critics pointing out only white females then, and certainly no males!

    Lucas has always been a basket case. Green is good, but not the kind of fanatical green she promotes.

    It’s going to be a massive slog out in the next two months. Dominic Cummings versus Remain politicians basically. It’s fascinating to watch from the outside.
