On the international stage, an ineffectual like Boris is going to take a daily kicking. And this is the public face of Brexit negotiatons. People on here are optimistic about Brexit , but not with good reason..


quite a strong article about what happened to Blobby when confronted by the US journalists

“She’s got dyed blonde hair and pouty lips, and a steely blue stare, like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital,” he said. “You also compared her to Lady Macbeth. Do you take these comments back or do you want to take them with you into your new job as some kind of indicator of the type of diplomacy you will practice?”

Close observers of American politics may know that John Kerry has not winced since around September 2013. They can now restart the stopwatch.

"I think we’d all much rather talk about Syria,” Johnson answered, the sort of conversation switcher that could only be uttered by a man gearing up for a house share with Liam Fox and David Davis.

Fox, Davis and Johnson. Sounds like a trio of dodgy solicitors. I think may has been shrewd about putting these three into play as negotiators for Brexit for the following reasons:

1. She wants a very slow, protracted Brexit. Possibly 3-5 years (the commission can extend the first two years by another 7)

2. She wants brexit to fail.

3. She wants rid of the three aforementioned stooges asap.

4. She's angling for a Brexit lite, one which she can run by an unsuspecting electorate.

Fox was a complete wet blanket in government. I wouldn't trust him to negotiate a two for one on Digestive biscuits.

Davis is all about conflict. He could pick a fight in any mortuary.

And as for Boris... You get the government you wish for.
