Don't forget the lawyers, who will happily do deals predicated on the value of those loans, then turn around and sue people for selling those loans without due diligence.

Keir Starmer and Dominic Grieve are pretty poor replacements, even if I wish both of them would seize control of their respective parties in bloody coups.

Off-site processing centres are all the rage these days.  The EU has them in Libya, which is of course a wonderful example of a migrant policy that hasn't gone completely wrong and turned into a humanitarian crisis/people smuggling opportunity/actual slavery.

Any attempts by Remainer MPs to delay or obstruct #Brexit must be opposed. Today I have formally asked Polish Government to veto any motions by EU to allow extension of Article 50. We are leaving 11pm on March 29th as promised @StandUp4Brexit

Colluding with a foreign government, to potentially thwart the will of Parliament....there's a word for that, its right on the tip of my tongue....

Isn't that why you guys have Traitor's Gate?

Sadly, our rules about treason are as restrictive as yours, if not more so.

It is funny though, watching the Brexiteers screech about democracy, then undermining Parliament.  Rees-Mogg was arguing today that May should shut down Parliament for a few days to prevent legislation on preventing a No-Deal Brexit be debated and voted on.

A Brit in my office explained it like, "It doesn't matter, the people voted to leave.  It would be like the US asking for a do-over on the 2016 election in 2018."

Except that this is a non-binding resolution.  Hell, Parliament can just say "we're not doing this."

Lots of MPs would lose their seats though.  Most MPs are against a hard Brexit, and always have been.  But they're completely spineless on this issue.

And there is a growing call for a 2nd referendum, but I fear that a) little has actually changed and b) the actual questions to be asked are still to be determined.

Necromancy! Kill it with fire!

It doesn't.  They are talking about what happens in March, without a deal.

But, well, things have to start moving now.  France has already activated it's own "No Deal" planning, Ireland and the Netherlands will soon follow suit.  Markets are looking nervous...if anything the EU should be shouting louder.

UK civil servants are also being seconded to departments where they will be needed to deal with the fallout of Brexit.  Borders, education, health...it's crippling departments like the Treasury.

But tHe WiLl Of TeH pEoPleE!

Labour have decided, a day late and a dollar short, that they want a second referendum.

May has said "lolno".

The Brexit minister has said there's no guarantee that the EU will even agree to an extension of Article 50, if Parliament goes ahead with it.

The EU has warned that in the event of there being no deal, the EU will have to impose a hard border in Northern Ireland.

My bedroom is slowly filling with pasta and tinned food.

I mean, we've been running interference for the Polish and Hungarian governments because they hate the EU just as much as we do.

That we're begging help off of two of the worst regimes in the Eurozone is a) pretty telling in and of itself, and b) will just piss off everyone else even more.

Fingers crossed.  Now I just have to overcome this fever and maybe get a new chair for my room (this one is rather, uh, uncomfortable) and I'll be set.

Maybe being ill will throw his life into perspective and he will run away and join a punk rock band, touring people's couches across the country.

Also, new place again.  This place looks a lot cleaner and seems (so far) a lot quieter than the other one.  And for only £15 more a month, it has double the space and a faster commute as well.

Apart from some sneezing, I've not seen or heard from the new flatmates.  I consider this a good sign.

They're now trying to be as noisy as possible without waking the neighbours.  Aw, that's cute.  Too bad I'm taking a day off tomorrow.
