Deal Done 21 November?

Number 10 is playing this down, doubtless because they want the glory of announcing it!

People Want Brexit, But Not May's Version of Brexit

As per Guido Fawkes a poll carried out by Deltapoll shows that only 26% of people want Brexit to be abandoned altogether.

However there is scant support for May’s current Brexit approach either, with 14% saying she should “go back to the drawing board and come up with a more acceptable plan” and 22% in favour of her leaving without a deal rather than making any more concessions to the EU.

Only 10% support her pressing ahead with Chequers.

No Deal Means Extra Budget

I have no doubt that No Deal would mean an extra Budget. That would be a "give away" Budget as Hammond would need to prime the pumps to keep everything financially afloat.

I guess that's what May meant when she said austerity was over!

UK MEPs Checking Their Redundancy Arrangements

One good thing from Brexit, we won't have any more MEPs.

Before you all howl in protest, how many of you know the name of your MEP?

No, I thought not!!!

Brexit Boost For May From Labour

I will believe it when I see it!

To put this into context, the journalist claimed a few days ago that David Davis was "admired" by some Labour MPs.

Brexiteers To Meet Barnier

Seemingly Brexiteers including Owen Paterson, David Trimble and Ian Duncan Smith will meet Michel Barnier in Brussels today, in order to tell him why May's Chequers plan is unworkable.

It has come to this that members of the governing party are now briefing the EU against their own leader!

There Is No Plan

In case anyone is wondering if there is a plan (eg Chequers II, "No Deal" or some variation thereon), there isn't one.

US Shoots EU's Fox

Christopher Giancarlo, head of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, called the EU plans to amend European Market Infrastructure Regulation “unprecedented and wholly unacceptable” and warned they could create “costly burdensome regulatory requirements” in the US.

Mr Giancarlo said that if the EU did not change the existing plans he would have “no choice” but to select from a wide range of actions that includes barring EU banks from using US financial infrastructure such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

A Question of Trust

Sadly, for the country and for May, I don't think people trust her to keep her word or to mange this well.

Gove's Treasure Hunt

I see the media are using Gove's idea of looking through rubbish (in order to reduce excess waste) as a post Brexit plan.

As amusing as that is, I am pretty sure this isn't anything to do with Brexit.

Dominic Raab Nails It!

The post Brexit "problems" are not rooted in the laws of physics (eg if we throw a ball into the air it will return to earth), but are rooted in manmade bureaucracy (which can be changed at the stroke of a pen).

These problems will cease to exist if people wish them to cease!
