While the rats are busy fighting in the sack the polls will be all over the place. I will wait until around the 5th Dec and see how the polls are behaving then. Magic grandad is 12 points behind at present, and who knows what damage the brexit party will cause in the labour heartlands?
We need all the opening phase infighting to settle down and re evaluate what the polls may be indicating.It is interesting the way the polling changed as soonas the brexit party released their mission statement.
If the brexit party and torys refuse to deal the dynamics change! Can the torys take that risk? Is the treaty Boris is trying to ram through worse than remaining?
This will be an election on brexit, no matter what attempts are made to broaden the discussion,

And a very interesting opinion here from Prof. Sir John Curtice, the UK’s leading election expert, on the possible outcome of the election, and the very different effect the result may have on the two main parties...and hence on the likelihood of Brexit happening or, hopefully, not.

'No 10 blocks Russia EU referendum report until after election'

That is the title of an article in the Guardian today.

I wonder what it contains that Johnson, who has had the report since at least the 17th October, wishes to keep from the UK electorate.

Could someone please link to the article.

I note that Johnson has said that there is no way he would ask for an extension to the transition period at the end of 2020. As there is no chance of a deal with the EU being finalised by that date, he is in effect promising us a no-deal brexit. Be advised.

I don't know if anyone else here heard it, but if so what to you think of Andrew Bridgen's attempts to excuse Jacob Rees-Mogg's blunder? To me, Andrew's remarks were very nearly as bad in casting the majority of the population as in need of patricians to tell them what to do.

It's all very well to portray it as guidance from patricians, but the thought process at the time would have been:
"I'm in a burning building, should I follow my instincts, and get out, or follow the advice of the fire brigade and stay put?"
While the fire brigade were giving what they believed (at the time) to be the best advice, it has since transpired that "I'm in a burning building, I need to get out" would have been the best response for most of the victims.
JRM may not have phrased that well, and it may be that there is no way to phrase it without risking offending someone. But, generally speaking, his comments were truthful.

And what has this to do with Brexit anyway?

Compo behind the curve as usual!
Corbyn has just called on the government to activate the Bellwin scheme to provide financial support to communities affected by flooding. The Bellwin formula makes funding available immediately to local authorities, such as those dealing with flooding in the Midlands and Yorkshire. An obviously good idea from Jeremy Corbyn. Which is probably why the Prime Minister activated it 3 days ago…
As one more polite commentator says:
"Scared chickens watching their increasingly shrinking poll numbers, frantically running around trying to politicise any disaster for their own political ends. Completely lacking in competence and morals."

Seems a fair summary to me.

I am not sure we will leave with a deal. on 1st July they have to ask more time to go beyond 2020. Given Johnson's campaign, plus a hard line element and arguably over confidence, I am fairly certain they will decide against and stick to the Dec 2020 date. Whether a deal of any kind or we leave with no deal at that point (as some ERG member claim they were promised) can be agreed in that time remains to be seen.

The one good thing to come from the election omnishambles is the neutralisation of the ERG, although I’m sure they will continue to try to get a Brexit crash-out. The problem is that, with a compulsive liar like Johnson, it’s impossible to know what his real intentions are - this particular ‘white man speak with forked tongue’.

According to Boris, the end of 2020. But it is an assumption that "we will leave with a deal". Boris says that that is what he wants, and I believe him. But no-deal (WTO terms) remains on the table, at the least as a bargaining chip.
No-deal will only be needed if the EU prove unwilling to agree suitable terms, (within the timescale) but the possibility of no-deal might encourage them to be more reasonable.
People will remember the EU saying that when Boris took over there could be no re-negotiation of Mrs May's deal. Within 3 months there was a new deal on the table. Boris clearly knows more about negotiating than Mrs May did, and possible more than the EU team. He says we will leave by the end of 2020 (preferably with a deal) and I believe him.
