In further "you did not see what you think you just saw" news (after the Covington thing), THEY'RE COMING RIGHT AT US!

For some reason, I thought it was important to find out what he was actually out there hunting.  If he shot the elephants purely in self-defense, it would stand to reason he was out there for something else.
But after digging a little, it turns out that Buzz Charlton, the other person in the picture, is a professional elephant hunter.
So...you go to Africa to hunt elephants...and then kill two of them... but it's okay because it was self defense:horrormirth:


"I shot that guy in self defense."
"You were robbing his house!"
"Yeah, but I thought he might have a gun."

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."
The leavers argument was "It was an instruction to parliament". Coming from a country that they have chained referendums; in light of new information a more detailed choice is presented.

The first was "Should the UK leave the EU", the next should be:
Remain
Deal
No deal
Extend and re open negotiation.

Ireland prepared for the EU saying a border would need to be imposed. The UK have treated the position as a threat or negotiation tactic;
Ireland will be effectively quarantining its own economy. We wont put in a border, we will increase checks at sea and on movement of people to and from Europe. Goods will need a certificate of origin from here when exporting to the EU.
If this satisfies to them that it protects the customs union it will limit the damage.
It will be catastrophic to both economies, the difference is, Ireland can gradually rebuild over a decade or two, the UK will face permanent veto to anything other then WTO with its closest and largest trading partner (the EU). In five years, ten years, twenty, the demonstration that Ireland wont accept any ideological partition of the country should be complete and the backstop should seem a comparatively small price to pay.

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?

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.
