Government asks Queen to suspend Parliament

The government has asked the Queen to suspend Parliament just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the IIIWW deadline.

Boris Johnson said a Queen's Speech would take place after the suspension, on 14 October, to outline his "very exciting agenda". But it means MPs are unlikely to have time to pass laws to stop a no-deal IIIWW on 31 October.

Those in various shades of blue and marple. They don't like to mention the part where we have to obey the rules anyway, because it doesn't fit their narrative.

Seems pretty clear-cut that we're taking back control of our fisheries and immigration at the very least in the blue and marple scenarios. That much seems to be agreed in May's deal that the EU refuse to renegotiate on.

Well, I guess if we can overfish the North Sea and tell darkies to go home, that must make up for all the other rules we'll still have to obey.

Bless their little cotton socks for thinking we will be able to set our own rules independently of anyone else. If we buy goods from the EU, they'll still be compliant with EU rules, and if we sell goods into the EU, they'll have to comply with those rules. The same goes for any agreement with the US, or China, or whatever other major trading nation we want to deal with. We will be the junior partner, and in no position to make demands.

FWIW, it's entirely their right to refuse to renegotiate, since we initially set the terms. If we want a different agreement, then we have to change the terms of the negotiation. That means the red lines have to either move or become less red.

So you agree that we can set our own rules in these areas under blue and marple. Good, I can put the kettle on then.

I mean, it's fairly obvious remain is the losing bet for them. All it would achieve is splitting their vote with the Lib Dems, even if it could be assumed that in terms of voting intention remainers out number leavers or even that voters will divide along those lines.

The fact it'd be taking a stance against the deal he will have negotiated would be called a sign of weakness by the media, by staying neutral it's a 0 sum answer to a lose lose scenario, remain would split their vote and make his deal seem weak, siding with his deal would make the mostly remain members of the party turn on him. As far as I see it the neutral stance is the only logical response to the situation if he wants to keep his position.

Taking a clear Remain stance would all but wipe out the Lib Dems, while taking a clear Leave stance would win back some otherwise loyal Labour supporters who switched to BrexKIP or the Tories over IIIWW. Fence-sitting might be good for Corbyn, but it completely scuppers Labour's chances at the next election. They aren't remainy enough for the remainers, they aren't IIIWWy enough for the IIIWWeers and Corbyn is nowhere near popular enough to side-step the IIIWW issue and win on his own merits.

I really don't see this.
Supporting remain would be suicide for Labour, but for the lib dems it's their best option to claw back votes they lost in the last two elections. The only question is going to be whether the votes will be too split to win many seats despite a large share of total votes. But I still think the best way forward for the lib-dems is to portray themselves as the only alternative to the red and blue shit show.

Imagine Jess cackling with laughter at your muffled screams as she smothers you into unconsciousness with her voluptuous arse cheeks. You drift off into the blackness, before being roused by a stream of hot piss all over your face. As the terror subsides and you start to regain awareness of your surroundings, she slaps you across the face and says "wakey wakey bab, I'm not done with you yet".

He's not even that posh. His branch of the family drifted from nobility, and his father was a farmer in Devon. He had to earn his places at Eton and Oxford. His net worth is only about £1.6m. That's about half of Are Nige, and JRM is around the £100m mark.

Everything about the man is a lie. It's very possible that he's 100% veneer and there really isn't a "real Boris" to be found underneath.

Posh or not once he's a former PM he can write a book, Cameron style, get paid to turn up and give a rambling speech at corporate events for silly money and do the same in print for a great number of newspapers around the world. He's not going to have to worry about American drug companies rogering the NHS senseless or his hometown's main employer packing up shop because whatever hard-right yahoo's in charge of trade sold them down the river to the Chinese.

It's my answer to all problems of the "romantic" kind, but that's only because I'm totally convinced it's the correct one; confidence. If there's one thing Johnson believes in it's himself, you just have to make sure you don't turn into a complete dickhead in this regard, because that's almost as much of a turn off as rampant insecurity. In my opinion this is best avoided by being jochular and gregarious, which once again, despite his many, many flaws, are traits Johnson seems to possess. I would also consider these traits to fall under the wider umbrella of "confidence".

Greatly. There was definitely a "real Dave", who was really rather posh. Fee-payer at Eton, less than 1000 places in line to the throne, got his first job arranged for him. Boris seems to be just a set of Russian dolls where the smallest one is empty.

The DUP have really stumbled into an amazing game with this. Between Northern Ireland seemingly unable to form an executive and their sway over Westminster they have simultaneously locked out any Nationalist voice while dictating the IIIWW process themselves and bringing home the bacon. There's urgent need for government in Northern Ireland but I guess not even they could've predicted how long this would go on.

Not that I really blame them for being prickly. They don't want a hard border over the Irish sea just as the nationalist community don't want one with the Republic only they don't have as many people fighting their corner and seem to be passed over as an inconvenience in Great Britain. It's perfectly legitimate, being British they don't want to be ruled from Dublin or end up as a proto-colony of the EU and unlike IrishPassportlad they're not willing to sacrifice their identity for money.

Thankfully for them, they're willing to sacrifice all sorts of other things for money, like their integrity.

I find it funny that the complexities of the departure and the general shitshow that arises from a lack of functioning government haven't really bothered them but even the slightest hint of a woman getting an abortion and suddenly they're desperate to get around the table.
