UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson

…In Brussels, the European Commission insisted it was open to talks but made clear Theresa May’s Brexit agreement was “the best possible deal” Britain was going to get.

That position was underlined by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, who insisted that the Withdrawal Agreement, including the backstop, could not be re-opened.

The latest exchanges followed reports from Brussels that EU officials had concluded that Boris Johnson’s new government had no intention of negotiating and that its “central scenario” was a no-deal break on 31 October.

    But he’s very funny…

    …when’s the last time you laughed at Thatcher, not including her funeral?

      When the rumour went around she was dead which subsequently proved to be unfounded- but a particular SF individual in west Belfast suggested we bury her anyways?

    The Brits don’t want a deal. When will the EU get this? As foolish as it may be, through hell or high water, they are going over the trenches. We’re the ones who are screwed, and Leo needs to accept it and prepare for chaos, the border being the least of it.

      The Brits are still split 50/50 down the middle- they still don’t know if it is a sh|t or a shave they want.

            …possible…but the only way you know is to have an election…or referendum…but why would you bother voting when your vote is going to be ignored or betrayed…

      Johnson ins entrenching his position calling for the back stop to be removed and backbenchers say they won’t even support the withdrawl agreement if the backstop is removed. The face is Jackie Stallone. It can’t be saved.
