Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Well what a day. Johnson has behaved comically, making a complete fool of himself in Europe, looking unprepared and rambling, making us embarrassed to be British.

In the meantime, we have Swinson. The Swinson who called for an in-out referendum almost before it was a twinkle in call-me-Dave's eye. The Swinson who, as a minister in the coalition, helped to enable ten years of austerity, pitching millions into misery. The Swinson who helped to break so blatantly the solemn LibDem promise on tuition fees. So now, ha bloody ha, she's telling us that a majority LibDem government would scrap brexit just like that. As Tommy Cooper might have said, not like that, like that. No referendum. And she would refuse to support either Labour or the Tories in a hung parliament.

Well I'll tell you summat. My constituency, North Cornwall, and the West Devon one next door, we're always traditional LibDem seats. Like nearly all the seats in this one-time LibDem stronghold which is the south-west, most people voted leave. So that's screwed it then. The Tories keep 'em all. She and her ragbag assortment of a handful of electees and a tawdry bunch of opportunist disaffecteds are going to be very disappointed when they get about a tenth of the seats needed to get their majority. And they WILL support one of the Big Two. It's what glory-seeking LibDems always do.
