    OT - EU straw poll...

    The point is less about this perogation, which as you point out @PurpleCanary really failed in it's purpose and as has also been pointed out only amounts to four sitting days, but any future perogation Johnson might try to use.

    Optimism rising that the Supreme court will see Johnson losing (again)

    SNP's QC was quite pithy about Johnson's non-appearance at the Supreme Court. He said it would require Johnson to tell the truth, the whole truth under oath.

    So, did you use a source? Or did you create this table yourself?

    Go on, @SwindonCanary, what is the source of the figures? Btw a percentage can't be in US$.

    I'll keep it simple. The EU have provided two options: A Border with all that entails The Withdrawal Agreement The UK have rejected both, they then invented something called "alternative arrangements", the EU asked what this would be and the UK doesn't have an answer. And for @paul moy's information a FTA needs 1 or 2 agreed before anything works. A FTA does not avoid answering these difficult questions.

    Simply untrue @paul moy, the failure rests squarely with the Brexiteers. They don't have a plan now, they didn't have one at the time of the referendum and have covered this up with lies. You cannot even spell FTA let alone understand what it really means. The UK has used up whatever leverage it once had, in truth it didn't amount to much.

    Christ on a bike @SwindonCanary, are really this stupid? The Single Market is a great British achievement, the EU will never put that a risk. A solution was agreed which allowed the UK to leave without damaging the SM and the UK reneged. Now the Brexiteers want another solution BUT CANNOT SAY WHAT IT IS. The suspicion is it doesn't exist. The only arrogance, combined with Herculean levels of stupidity, is from Brexiteers like you. The UK can have the WA, the UK can have No Deal but it can't have both. Johnson wants to crash out and then blame the EU. Only the very stupid will believe that, that is you.

    True, and that is the view of the EU. A new governement unable to articulate what they want, that would work and would pass Parliament.

    It's simple @SwindonCanary, the UK decided to leave, the UK government agreed a deal, UK government now wants to change the deal, Uk government has no idea what can be agreed that will fix the problem and the UK government wants someone to blame. Do you notice a theme?

    A disaster for Johnson, richly deserved, and a continuation of the humiliation for the UK of having this man as leader. The EU know him for what he is.

    Yep, now we know the UK's place in the world as the leader of Luxembourg rips Johnson a new one. Johnson's reponse, to silently slink off in shame

    That would be good if it was true, but as ever another of your posts is inaccurate @Jools. That is just the higher rate of income tax. Only the little people pay income tax. The wealthy have ways and means to avoid. Not least by being paid via dividends for once (max 38.1%). Inheritance Tax is 40% above the threshold. Capital gains is either 20% or 28%. Marginal tax rates tend to be higher for the working poor than the rich.......personally I think taxation is the price we pay to live in a civilised country. It should be at Northern European rates, where the economies tend to be stronger and the normal people richer and the public services better.
