The news cycle today has been unenlightening. Parliament are back from their nice long weekend break. Guess it wasn’t all THAT important to stay in session… So who knows what they are up to now.
The E.U. has said “Sure, we’ll extend. No particular date. You move first”.
It looks to me like everyone is trying to avoid blame for an exit instead of embracing it as a Good Thing.
With luck, it will all collapse into a WTO Terms Brexit on the 31st and everyone can point fingers at the other guy.
The Boris Deal is almost as bad as the May Deal. Fishing still dominated by EU. EU Courts still making rules. Lots of money to the EU. Etc. Hopefully Parliament are unwilling to vote it in.
Maybe Nigel needs to remind EVERY EU LEADER that they get HIM for a couple of more years unless they refuse an extension…
So It’s Monday here, late Monday in the UK. That leaves Tuesday & Wednesday to actually get anything “done”. Then it is the 31st. Does anyone know if the exit happens at 00.01 on the 31st or at 23:59.59? I.e. does parliament still have screwing around rights until Thursday Midnight?
So this posting is just place to put “Breaking news” as it is broken ;-) I expect something to happen in the next few days, but no idea what. The Boris “Deal” is horrible enough to have me wondering if he is a “secret remainer” or does he think it is so bad it will assure a “no deal” WTO terms Brexit…
