no shock at all from the moment May stepped down he was going to win, he was trying to force her out because he knew it.



Trump was already parody gone mad, Boris takes it to another level, you would struggle to create a show with 2 crazier leaders. both have pasts that would kill off political careers, have gaffs that should of done them in too. hell in there minor infractions are nuts.

both also are puppets in there own way, rather than having morals and policies they change as the wind blows pushed by those behind the scenes.



Boris ddnt even want to leave the EU, he saw it as a way to score political points, the same way Trump didnt even want to be President he just wanted to get some juice from running.



now he has to go get a super deal with the EU and all the wonderful things he promised right, wait he doesnt because the courts say you can just knowingly tell lies, sounds great.



so much time has been wasted on the extension already and more is bound to be wasted.



so now its down to the MPs to somehow save us.

he would be far superior to the other options, flawed but things would be better.

The good news is that I think Boris is already on borrowed time. We've had a few resignations already with quite a few more predicted. Amazingly it isn't completely out of the question that his premiership ends as early as tomorrow if he cannot command a majority in the House of Commons. Right now that majority is 2.

It's unlikely though so I'm going for a tempestuous 2 or 3 months where Boris realises just how intractable the whole Brexit mess is followed by a General Election and some kind of hung Parliament. We end up staying in.
That's best case scenario.

Worse case is we leave on October 31st without a deal and the economy goes into meltdown and we're in full blown recession by February. Longer term Scotland forces a referendum and wins it. Ireland does the same after the IRA blow up a load of parked cars on the mainland. There's a fragile peace as Ireland unifies but civil war is constantly a possibility. The Welsh get told to poke it as 2 newly independent countries on our doorstep is enough to deal with. People in Cornwall get restless. Car manufacturing all but disappears, farming teeters on the brink. After a massive bailout most UK fishing boats are sold to spanish and french companies as most of the fishermen took the money and retired with it. A leg of lamb in Tescos costs £47. Insulin can be found on the black market. The NHS is sold piecemeal to the US.

Rees Mogg retires to the Bahamas though after selling his equity stake in Somerset Capital and, after a brief period as the British Ambassador in Washington Nigel Farage gets kicked to death by a horse while on holiday so it's not all bad.

News just in- Rory Stewart has just gone. No surprise there I guess, the only principled realist in cabinet.

Worth stating that all these resignations are just for show. They’re jumping before pushed as all know Boris would sack them anyway, either because he doesn’t want them or because he did but they already made clear they won’t work with him.

true but the balance in the house is fine and maybe Boris does make it worse.
