The EU, in a rare sign of foreign policy competency, actually planned for this.

While it was hoped the draft would be finalised at the EU summit happening tomorrow, they factored in the possibility of talks falling through and November being the actual final chance to negotiate something before the December EU summit.

However, that at least part of the problem is that the UK is failing to negotiate because of it's own preconditions does...not inspire confidence.

So, the left-wing screeching about the dems has reached new levels on social media.  Apparently, if you vote to stop the redneck trash in the GOP, you are literally the next Hitler.

Do your part, America.  Shove a progressive down a manhole today.

20 minutes behind the headlines:

EU leaders have scrapped plans to discuss and publish a draft declaration this week on the bloc’s future trade deal with the UK after the derailment of the talks over the Irish border, in a blow to Theresa May.

An outline of an agreement was due to be “on the table” at a summit dinner of leaders on Wednesday night, before which the prime minister is scheduled to address the 27 other EU heads of state.

Developments on Sunday, when the Brexit secretary, Dominic Raab, refused to sign off on an agreement on the Irish border, have brought the carefully choreographed plans to a halt.

I felt bad because I had a Trump, then I saw that my neighbor had an infinite number of Trumps.

Hajimete no Shoggoth! / My First Girlfriend is a Shoggoth!
Suzune is a little bit sheltered -- her parents have discouraged her from socializing outside of school, for fear that it would impact her studies. But, she was told that once she entered high school she'd be allowed to go out & even date. So, after school on her first day of high school she goes into the city, where she's promptly accosted by a group of older boys who want to take her to 'karaoke'. She doesn't really know what's going on, but she's saved when she hears someone shout "HENSHIN!" and they are engulfed by a blob of putrid flesh. A girl about her age with strangely damp skin takes her hand and brings her to safety. I turns out this girl is a shoggoth who, upon accidentally thawing from an antarctic sample in the apartment of an archaeologist, accidentally imprinted on the transforming hero show he was watching & was given the following prime directive: hide your true nature, protect the weak, and fight for justice. Can love bloom between this naive teenager and this justice-obsessed shape-shifting blob of alien goo? Of course it can: it says so in the title!

Yes, a general deal should have been agreed by tomorrow's EU summit, as I recall.

Things are going to unravel from this point.

I think the UK should have been negotiating with itself for about 4-5 years before article 50 was signed.

Figure out a stance and go into negotiation with that, not go in suggest something and come home to be told by the old ball and chain (Arlene) that these are not acceptable.

So in the short term, if the EU summit is missed, we'll start seeing businesses activating contingency plans. Some will be bad for the UK, expect manufacturers first, then the financials. The clearing houses will be making their mind up in November, which will be bad for the EU and bad for the world, 2008 here we come.

But if we throw them in the Thames, what will we eat once the shops run out of food?

My post-Brexit plan involves: burning copies of the Sun and Mail to keep warm, eating Leave voters and travelling the country in an armoured bus with an advert about NHS spending on the side.

I'm in. We have a massive stockpile of scottish unionists up here I've been fattening up for the lean times. Trust that will be enough to pay for my bus pass?  :evil:

The mass hilarity begins at the very bottom of page 2.

Discordian Fundamentalists really do exist.

Well, yes.  That - the Tao/EvT thing - ended in horror, madness, and death, so it all turned out okay.

Let the good times roll!
