Excellent. He might make it more left wing.

And more readable for the rest of us. I would vote for Boris. Great chap. 

And more racist.
Not really. It's just the banter from the playing fields of Eton

I was a Thespian in my student days. A song from The Hostage by Brendan Behan in which I played the leading role of a British soldier. I was executed by the IRA at the end of the play.
BTW any Wilmotters who play croquet? It's my favourite sport.

Revenge fantasy?

It was the role in the play. No one else wanted to do it.I resigned when the season ended. Still, I got rave revues, dahling!

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

On the border they don't care one way or the other.

Food has become a commodity. People want cheap, mass-produced chicken.
You're 5 years late. Now people want hummus and veggie sticks. (I call this new species Hummus sapiens.)

As Garfield the cat says, you are what you eat... :-P

I've been wondering what draws women to such a mediocre guy like Boris Johnson and I think I figured it out. Nothing. He's just always there and willing when all other options fail.

EU airports not prepared for No Deal:

https://news.sky.com/story/eu-airports- ... s-11502372

Almost worth booking a flight to Schiphol for 1 April 2019 to watch the chaos.

Looks like the EU are sleepwalking into a No Deal situation, they’d better get their act together ASAP.

The EU is not known for being light on its feet. If there is chaos in the EU then can you imagine all the blaming that will happen and the mountains of EU paperwork that they will generate?!!

In absolute terms, no.

Relative to the EU, yes. Or rather I would hope that we would be better able to respond. Depends how much Remoaners and Brexiteers blame each other!

I just hope it ends in March. The media's obsession over Brexit is obnoxious. Instead of just the Tory party "banging on about Europe", we've got the whole country doing the same.
