Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
As I understand it, he's likely to try to get someone like Orbán to veto any request for an extension as his ploy to crash us out without a deal on 31 October. It would take just one nation to do that veto. I wonder how much the Commission can lean on its national leaders to do the right thing... One thing's for sure. There is nothing even remotely approaching a deal in the pipeline. The EU has already trashed his elaborate pie-in-the-sky nonsense about customs posts away from the border and "technological solutions." Bullshit reigns supreme.
This bloke is going to get away with lying repeatedly to the country, shitting on the legacy of Jo Cox, giving taxpayer bungs to his lover and putting his hand up women's skirts, because the leaver-ignorantes of this country think that these things don't matter, that he's just a characterful Jack-the-lad. If he's still in office in six months' time they'll soon see how much they do matter. Unfortunately, the rational among us won't feel inclined to indulge in schadenfreude.
