funny, you pipped me to the post :-)
I suggest for each day:

<\day><\main event>

e.g. Today

50:"Ye are all going to hell" (D. Tusk).

British MP and Brexiteer Boris Johnson was paid over €58,000 to speak at a business conference in Dublin last month. Although Mr Johnson's speech lasted for under an hour, the politician also took part in a meet-and-greet with guests at the summit.

I think my favourite option for 29 March is looking more likely now. It is "Don't Know." 

I don't mean "Don't Know" in the sense that we don't know what will happen. But "Don't Know" in the sense that there'll be so much confusion, so many legal opinions, and (I rarely say this) hopefully lawsuits that we won't know whether we are actually in or out. Interesting that anyone who answered "Don't Know" to any poll could turn out to be correct.

It could be fun!

"It’s perfectly simple. The UK has three options. Accept the agreement we negotiated with you in good faith. Reject it and leave without a deal. Or say never mind and stay in the EU."

I really want a no deal. I need to know what will happen after all the predictions. Open the box! Open the box!

I want May's deal. Then to vote for Tories I will close my eyes and think about a hard border with Ireland on the sea. I'm only not sure exactly where. Some shallow waters.

Not possible. The Isle of Man is in the way.

And UK pays for this border.

As long as the Man doesn't try to take my abortion right his Isle can stay on our side.

I think that is exactly the kind of statements that Tusk is making that plays into the the brexiteers hands. I can only assume that Tusk thinks that actually Europe is better off destroyed. What kind of diplomacy is it? However he is of course right? Who in their right mind would support anything when no-one has ANY idea as to what will happen? Only idiots.

It recalls this blog post. The parallels are striking.

But some politicians earn >> 50K (you know who I mean), their utility = O(chaos). Smart guys and they all fall for it. This elite will be fine post-Brexit, no matter what.
