We have gone from "we hold all the cards" and "easiest trade deal in history" to "the EU is legally required to take pity on us" in the space of a year



So if I was putting money on the table, is May going to be around in 6 months?

It's looking increasingly likely that Boris Johnson is preparing a leadership bid.  His latest "Muslims are terrible" column, right after meeting with Steve Bannon, strongly suggest he's trying to whip up the far-right and gain their support for a putsch.

I just don't see the Commons doing anything about it until we're actually in No Deal territory, at the start of April.  When food starts running out and everything jumps up in price and people start rioting...then they will consider it.  But not a moment before.

How the fuck are the Brits even putting up with this?  I'd have figured they'd go full Cromwell by now.

No-one wants to believe it can really be that bad.  Everyone right now, with the exception of certain mid-tier civil servants, people with experience in customs and ports and people who handle anything that has to do with European based supply chains, is completely deluding themselves.
