Glad you had a good celebration

This view is not shared by our Julia but here goes anyway:

That’s the majority view, everyone on our side so wants it to be true, when it quite palpably is not:

#  Still in the Customs Union
#  Still in the Single Market
#  Still only a small percentage of our fishing waters
#  Still in the EU Army and no plans to leave
#  Still paying the EU billions to prop them up to keep fighting us
#  Still HS2.

And what’s more, with people somehow believing in the triumph of hope over experience that the EU in its death throes will cease demanding all those concessions it can eek out of Johnson – whyever would it cease demanding whatever it can con him into giving, playing hardball, when almost half voted to Remain? Maybe that’s about one third now but the third in high places of influence.

So what has changed? There’s been some movement on the ridiculously named ‘backstop’, the only thing Johnson is interested in. However, to mention it:

… is not done, is it? Just saw this:

EU reveals there’ll be customs checks in the Irish Sea after Brexit despite Boris Johnson’s repeated claims there won’t be.

“In addition, EU representatives have the right to be present during checks, request information & direct UK to carry out checks.”

    A small victory in a longer term battle. HMG should now begin a legal battle by any means necessary to right the wrongs of the past half century. Not just under International and Treaty Law as such might with reasonable costs be available, but against those internally who enriched themselves on the proceeds of the sale of our national sovereignty and our democracy. Maybe not as criminal proceedings but as a truth revealing exercise in the spirit of a similar post-apartheid exercise in South Africa.
    Concurrently, as strange as it could possibly be, President Trump’s impeachment trial collapsed in the US Senate, as the BREXIT vote of Britons finally became irreversible. This too will now inevitably result in the real rot at the heart of UK politics soon becoming almost fully revealed. To fail to now further hide the facts from the British public as the UK MSM have achieved over the 3 plus years since 23/6/16 will only further retard any national reconciliation now so urgently necessaty in the opinion of this seasoned fighter for proper BREXIT by blog, book, and Internet for more than thirty years!

      Quite right, Martin.

      Kenny Rogers:

      You never count your money
      When you’re sittin’ at the table
      There’ll be time enough for countin’
      When the dealin’s done

    At long last the word DEMOCRACY meant something, The Bureaucrats Paradise of Brussels has been humiliated, Trump beats the Psychocrats in the Senate.The sun is shining I feel great (for now).

      So do I.

      It was worth celebrating our entry into the transition period, as the Brexit Party London Assembly member stated.

      David Kurten is very good in the London Assembly chamber, especially when questioning the mayor.

    By the way, CM, thanks for the post again. VG cheers too.

      Thank you very much, James — greatly appreciated. Hope the new year and new decade are treating you well, too. House renovations chez moi resumed promptly on Twelfth Night. The next six months are already being planned.

      Regardless of our reservations about ‘Brexit’ (Transition) Day, I still think we have much to look forward to. The new Conservative MPs from the North are absolutely stellar, especially Dehenna Davison, who represents Bishop Auckland so confidently.

      I anticipate that when we are fully out, by then, there will be a grand UK-wide celebration that lasts for a couple of weeks (Big Ben on the day, nationwide parties, television specials, coffee table commemorative Brexit books, etc.). Maybe even Wallace and Gromit will feature, doing something other than advertising sofas. Who knows?

      Boris and ‘Classic’ Dom are planning for that moment. When it comes, Guy Verhofstadt will need to bring in more wine from his Italian vineyard to drown his sorrows. Good luck, Guy; be sure to invite Jean-Claude, too.
