New thread for the summer months?

Boris Johnson is being a dick, so that’s novel:

Spring 2018 Brexit Thread - Dooooooooomed

I love the Mail’s reaction: ‘Boris Johnson is being wilfully insubordinate yet again - Theresa May should sack Philip Hammond!’

It’s almost as if this was a question that should never have been put to the public to start with.


I came here to share this. So with that one we can assume the right/wrong split is roughly 50/50 but everyone thinks it’s going badly! Brilliant.


So safebruvs one is a readjustment of this survey? How on earth has ‘right’ increased?
