Its swung past that already, options on sanctions being discussed

And rightfully so. The AG's statement on the legality of the legislation was a disgrace. This is every bit a sledgehammer at the knees of the concept of international law as the Iraq War was.

Funny I just thought of Iraq too, when I read "Critics say reneging on a legally binding international commitment will trash Britain's reputation for upholding law and order." Like, we're a walking fucking warcrime It'd be easier to kick a woman square in the nuts than do any damage to our reputation at this point.

I'm up to my arse in Brexit Numpties, but I want more.  Target-rich environments are the new sexy.

The only hope is enough rebellion in their own party or the Lords blocking it.
Im not sure what they are thinking. Even if they try and avoid the WA now it will be prerequisite to starting off talks again in the future

If it wasnt for Cromwell ravaging Ireland in the first place, this wouldn't even be an issue, this is his legacy continuing to unfold

Cromwell didn't actually ravage Ireland.  He was there for six months, and paid chieftains to attack each other.

Which they had previously done for free.

The war campaign was one short and bloody factor, the penal laws targeting Catholics was lasting and destructive. It also paved the way for the land and subsequently food laws that caused the famine.
Yes the clans warred, and some worked for him, they all came to regret that

One Tory MP has said he will vote against it, so far. Only...79 more to rebel!

We're fucked.

Yeah, there isnt enough resistance there to block it. Lords might punt it back but they will be overruled

Meanwhile the EU has threatend the Nuclear option

Remember the clearing houses that were too big to tamper with even with brexit, that 1Tn goes through per day, roger mentioned it way back right after the vote just happened. If the UK tears up the WA, the EU is going to press the big red button on the world economy

Most of the world has been firewalling their economies against this the best that they can.  The UK may have noticed this, or perhaps it was obscured by the plague.

Yeah, the main damage will be to the EU and the UK, Asia and the US seem to have taken measures to use smaller clearing houses for the Euro

This fucking "blockade" story they are pushing:
The choice was simple, border across the land, dividing Ireland, and Ireland will never ratify a trade deal, or a border down the sea.
Free movement of goods only stops if the UK drops its standards on foods and good.

And if, if they had a point to complain on that the time was last year: the outcome was clearly stated and reported on, and complained about by the DUP, and then ratified and voted in by their party in the international treaty that was signed in January.
