We should just leave without telling anyone. Like leaving a bad party.

Nah, won’t work. They’ll see us leaving and block the driveway.

He woke up one night,
In a nightmarish fright,
That his country was run by a cretin

Mammon, pigeon, gibbon, baboon, moron, buffoon, strap-on and bonobo are words which came to my mind. I didn't notice that it was supposed to be about BoJo :-) Things are looking good on the bunny-hugging extremist front, we have a common enemy - climate catastrophe. Ugli declared that she wouldn't let any Pole in the UK after 1 Oct. JRM banned "awesome", "due to", ... I have nothing against BoJo's government so far.

Meanwhile, Mr Johnson believes the EU will blink first in the Brexit stand-off but acknowledged there would be "bumps along the road".

EU hasn't blinked yet, so WHY would they at this stage?

They are waiting to see how the enemy within does in their attempt to overthrow the will of 17.4m people.

But Mouse, you are not alone,
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes of mice and men
Go often askew,
And leave us nothing but grief and pain,
For promised joy!
