Brexit Thread IV - Negotiations begin (and we're all screwed)


#1301

Yeah, this


#1302

Yes. Although we should probably ‘balance’ this ourselves knowing that the BBC has an impossible job and generally does adequately in the circumstances.


#1303

Apparently he had also previously mentioned that the PM had read them, but I can’t find a quote for this. I’d love to see it thrown in Theresa May’s face if it exists though…


#1304

if i’m reading these tweets right atm, apparently may just said no, they don’t have any brexit impact assessments because they’ve already released brexit impact assessments, but at the time they weren’t called brexit impact assessments.

she turned into a corncob.


#1305

I find it crazy that this should be proper downfall stuff, but the Tories will inevitably just ignore it all and carry on regardless. These fucking reports have been used to justify all sorts of stuff directly and indirectly, including reassuring UK businesses that they won’t be entirely stuffed. Could we see the £ utterly crumble later today?


#1306

It’s alright… it’s ok, it’s fine.

Peter Bone’s just offered to go along and help ‘sort out’ the EU negotiations.

It’s all going to be ok.


#1307

it’s like a really passive aggressive, quintessentially english version of what’s happening with trump and his weekly fuck ups.


#1308

Isn’t his thing just waffling until time runs out? It’d almost be worth a no deal Brexit just to see him manage that for 15 months.


#1309

It’s either him or Bill Cash. I get these dinosaur Europhobes all mixed up.


#1310

how the fuck is all this happening ?

It’s like one long racist episode of Fawlty Towers where the initial lie has to be backed up and doubled down on so many times that the entire nation implodes

it’s fucking terrifying imagining this lot will forcibly hard-brexit the UK & then set about implement those new arrangements

fucking terrifying


#1311

Now you see why nobody was ever stupid enough to suggest a referendum on capital punishment, we’d have probably been stringing up shoplifters before too long.


#1312

People voting yes for Sharia punishments on anyone trying to implement sharia law.


#1313

Exactly. Same fucking reason we didn’t hold a referendum on whether or not we should keep sterilising homosexuals. Hope history remembers Cameron as a particularly moronic PM rather than just the generic evil Tory he otherwise was.


#1314

Would’ve been so easy to rig as well. Chuck in a minimum turnout clause, overall majority or a soft/hard brexit option and this Wouldn’t be happening


#1315

I definitely think he’ll be looked on very unfavourably. Him and Osborne.

Plus, he fucked a pig.


#1316

looking back now it is absolutely ridiculous that the referendum didn’t include multiple options

hard brexit
soft brexit
soft remain (keep everything the same)
hard remain (join the Euro)


#1317

What about the Red White & Blue Brexit? I thought that’s what we were getting and yet I don’t see it on your list.


#1318

worst thing is that he probably looks back and goes “aah well it didn’t all go to plan but being PM for 6 years was a jolly good laugh” rather than going “oh wow i’ve really fucked things for… pretty much everyone”

i hope all his friends like cheese-maker bellend from Blur give him a hard time about it constantly


#1319

He’s almost certainly perfectly happy and insulated from the effects of Brexit in his £25k shed.


#1320

it’s almost like i didn’t think this referendum thing through!
