Just listened to Rachel Reeves on the news complaining that the government have had four years to get customs checks in place at Dover. What a bloody hypocrite! Labour and Remainers have spent those four years obstructing any and all progress on Brexit and now they are trying to shunt the blame onto the government. Shear barefaced cheek!

Yes, and some of the remainers are now saying that "of course we should stay in due to the pandemic" just for a few more years of course. Or perhaps remain partly in indefinitely.

The Tories fought the recent Election on a 'Get Brexit Done' message, and won a massive majority.
They have a totally free run - it's the Boris & Dom Show.
Brexit will be in their image, and theirs alone.

Already this year:
Coronavirus - total shambles - now trying to blame/abolish PHE
Exam results - total shambles - now trying to blame/abolish Ofqual

I see a pattern here, but let's wait and see.....

In the fall of 2021 but perhaps much changed from traditional practices.

Whatever happens with Brexit now, covid offers the perfect excuse if the economy suffers and blaming the EU doesn't stick. But blaming the EU will probably stick.

Did anyone really doubt that the EU would be obstinate buggers in negotiations? It's win-win for Bojo Cummings.

I've always thought that the EU wouldn't give an inch. If they did they would have a queue of nations wanting out on similar terms. We should have gone for a "no deal" exits over a year ago because that is probably what we'll end up with and a wasted year as well.

I never doubted it for a second. When the USSR was challenged they got very nasty very quickly. The EU(the theocracy not the people) have stated quite openly the UK must suffer for leaving.

But contrary to popular opinion the UK is quite a role model for democracy. An indefatigable stalwart that goes back to giving the middle finger to Napoleon when he wanted to starve the British to death.

We have seen off better tyrants than Mick Barnes.

I thought the rich wanted english cannon-fodder to fight Napoleon because he wanted land reform, changes to inheritance and trust law dating back to medieval times?? When did he threaten Britain [first]?

Yes. Barnier has completely overplayed his hand. He thought that if he played hardball on fisheries and state aid, the UK would cave in. How wrong can you be. Bojo knows that caving in would be politically disastrous, and is fully prepared for a no-deal in January. Basically Barnier thought the UK was bluffing, but the UK was not bluffing. There's no way the UK will allow EU access to UK fisheries now.
