Here’s the Government’s Brexit “No deal readiness report”. It runs to 155 pages. It is a peculiar mix of jolly pro-Brexit cheerleading and hair-raising warnings about everything that’s about to hit us with the force of a charging rhino.

Hunt has sent this letter to EU foreign minister (ht @bbclaurak). First, am sure it wasn’t the intention, but it comes across as the ‘dear Europeans, let me explain things to you because Britain knows best’ that so annoys many member states (beyond Brexit)

      Mornin Nana. Fiasco the inside story of the brexit talks, a very worthwhile read.

      Oh what a tangled web we weave etc. Right from the start, so many lies, now so many missed opportunities. Sad, sad, sad. Now where are we, in the middle of the biggest bourach imaginable.Bozo and henchmen still trying to sell the lie that the talks are progressing and doing well, then from the EU, well, there are no talks and nothing sensible to talk about. Window dressing from no 10.

      Then there’s Northern Ireland. They never ever really even thought about it, did they. Same as with Scotland, we don’t really matter. Collateral damage, oh dear, how sad, never mind. Unfortunately for Westminster, they do actually have to mind. I find it pretty terrifying , crashing out with no deal, and, as for what might happen in NI, doesn’t bear thinking about. After twenty odd years of peace, they will be thrown under the bus and left to get on with it.

      We no longer have politicians in Westminster, worthy of the name. Instead of what’s best for the UK as a whole, it’s all party and personal benefits first. I truly despair somedays.

      We in Scotland still have a lifeboat, but I wish that they would bloomin well get on with launching it. I appreciate what the SNP have been doing, and that brexit has not yet been delivered, but, I fear for Scotland and all our fellow citizens under this bunch of charlatans.

        Hi Marie,
        The brexit fiasco article is by Peter Foster europe editor for the Telegraph. He’s been reporting the facts rather than the BBC shite.
        Here’s his latest thread on Hammond’s mutterings from earlier today

        I’m hoping the FM will give us a wee hint during the conference, it’s getting harder being patient but at least we don’t have to be the one making the decision and she won’t want to get the timing wrong. For the sake of all our mental health and especially for the EU nationals living here, I hope it will be soon.

        Re EU nationals and their settled status

        Secretary of State @BrandonLewis confirms that EU citizens in UK WILL be subject to full immigration enforcement and liable to removal if they miss Settled Status deadline in exclusive Interview with @StefanieBolzen in Germany’s

        This is the best I could manage… Clarity urgently requested from @scotgov after announcement of pending future detainment and deportation of EU citizens not approved for Settled status by the UK government.

        It is criminal how they have and are being treated.

    Just to round out the Trump-Kurd situation. His reasons for ditching the Kurds: they did not help at Normandy!!!!! From the Guardian:

    Has the world gone mad?

    I usually settle down with a cup of coffee to read through your links. These days the coffee is getting stronger and stronger but it is not giving me the usual buzz. I think I may have to start taking it intravenously.
