Fuck its actually come to this. Reading those comments on that though.
So many people think this is a game of chicken, that the EU is going to blink, its not a harmonious union, the member states mostly hate each other, agreeing anything is slow and tedious, the only thing that is agreed is that a fair rule book be applied to all members, its not a negiotating position to insist that if you want the benefits, you get the cons, no other option was ever going to fly.

Nonsense As Salvation, then?

Is Pinealism the answer?

It has more power if it is funny, not the same old jokes retread, though nonesense applied in the correct doeses at the right time has its place.

The kek pepe god emperor false religion was fun, at least at the start. It distilled anger and the illusion of counter establishment into Trump; the perfect symbol to promise fun: just enough Alzheimer's blended with Kim Kardashian, with ridiculous outlandish claims, and the best part was everyone hated him.

Chaos and its iconography has its seasons, it currently belongs to people who backed a shitty joke candidate into office who is trying to fulfill his promises to the people who wanted weak xenophobic anxiety to be policy.

Eris's favourites are likely chosen by butt dialing, and this time she gave favour to the nazi's.

The best way to take back the flame of chaos is to make it FUN again, to be the walking glitch, to be rediculous, because at the moment it belongs to a group who dance to the awful tune of that orange one man band

The long term gain of clean trade could be good for the U.K provided the EU fails, if it even stays the same or grows the UK in all likelyhood loses out on the benfits of that. Or if Europe decides to be the bad guy in another world war. Which makes me wonder if that is the real push to leave? What do leave know that we dont, because its certainly not the benefits of fisheries and blue passports.

Parliament added an amendment  to block NI being in a different customs union, and no possibility of a border in the Irish sea.

That's the pooch screwed, there is no longer a negotiating position in between full EU alignment or no deal.
Regulatory alignment means being tied to the EU, it is the most humiliating option so I am now preparing for a no deal WTO scenario.

I don't know why Mogg and co thought Ireland would back down on the border or "soften our position if the deal is sweetened". It was fundamental, the basis of all other negotiation, as such the veto is going to played and we all get the worst possible outcome.

Can't you just ignore May's government entirely and just trade as normal?

43% of all agriculture is currently exported to the UK. On world trade organisation rules, these suddenly have 21% slapped on them on both sides. We can live with it and the EU has floated that it will absorb half of that in new demand for milk and dairy to european countries.

The border in the north of Ireland is the issue.  In anything but full EU alignment for Northern Ireland, it needs a border. The EU will push us for it in a non WTO scenario where NI isnt in the customs union.

The republic will now need to veto negotiations if they dont get that alignment, as in WTO the UK its forced to address the border while the EU has to give leniency to the republic or rather can't enforce fines on us.

If the U.K. puts in a border, there are more crossings than the border in eastern Europe it would make trumps wall cost look like chump change, in this scenario the north will have a border poll and will either become part of the republic and the UVF(UK nationalists) terrorism problem becomes ours or they vote to stay in the U.K. in which case the IRA (republican nationalists) rise to the tune of  Delores ni Reardons Zombie. Either way sucks. Europe will repeatedly say that the republic Needs to put up a border if the UK dont, which we will ignore unless they intend to pay for it which they wont.
If no border is erected and the UK ends up on WTO  with no border, northern Ireland basically becomes a smuggling port like a more rainy miserable Morocco/Interzone. (Which ironically undermines the whole thing of controlling foreigners going into the UK).
That shitty position of putting the UK on WTO at the moment looks like the best possible option for ireland, we know what a century of no work and a crippled economy looks like. For the U.K. it might come as a shock, it will make the Thatcher years look like a bump in the road.

So, this state visit is going well  :lulz:

Undermine May at every chance, recommend the hardest possible brexit, probably wants the UK to leave the WTO, says he supports may but that boris would be a better pm, insult ireland as a passing afterthought not realising were not part of the UK.

On the plus side i hope this runs counter to any future of a boris pm. The tories play an elitist game that trump ignored the rules of.

So far its been less offensive than I thought it would be.

Boris is no great loss either. I'm told he is the next rat who has left the stinking ship. [sic]
Boris never does anything in others interests, leadership challenge or election incoming

Rate me based on this formula:

We need a little more info, how many time have you been to mass?

So, David Davis (Brexit Minister) has resigned, a woman has died from Novichok poisoning, and the Donald is coming here in 4 days time.

Davis was no loss anyway, he was just parroting whatever he had been told to. A lot of resignations in the last year, at least he wasnt trying to make illegal arms deals with isreal like Pretty patel was.

Times running out, Cain I think you called it two years ago when you said the EU wouldn't budge an inch, be as punitive to the UK as possible and had no real intention of doing any deal, this is looking more and more likely. WTO results in the border in Northern Ireland so that is the last thing I want.

It does dawn on me that the brexit promise of "We will be able to make trade deals that we couldn't" is the crux of the matter. The UK wants that... But with the individual countries that make up a trade block that are the only ones it cant make a deal with. Soveirnty will allow the UK to make deals with the US with China, India etc but not any of the geographically closest nations to it, and thats what's killing the negotiations because May and the hardliners know without that, whats the point? Shipping, food and medicine become restrictive and expensive.
If the EU wont make a deal it's a choice between lost decades of trade and a much reduced economy, or loss of pride and having to stay in the EU. I strongly suspect they will go for the former but it may be the worst possible outcome.

Just because you unearthed my corpse from a bog in 1347 and suddenly the black death, and again came by my cairn right before a potato famine,  and here we are again on the eve of the next big oops doesn't mean we are both time travellers, one of us takes the slow road.

Concentration camps weren't enough, so lets have Kangaroo courts to try legitimise the villainy

Well, yes.  It is not at all unreasonable to put a 3 year old in court without the presence of a parent, or even notifying the parents that the hearing is to take place.

Fun question:  If a child were to be found against, how do you deport an unaccompanied 3 year old, when you have lost track of who the kid is and who his family is?

Based on the last two weeks track record of doing the worst possible thing I imagine ICE hand them over to the nearest sex trafficker
