At least the English supporters didn't demolish the stadium this time around.

So, what trick do we think BoJo and the Rees Mogg will rely on to accomplish their goal of a no deal exit in two weeks? The supremacy of EU law over the Benn act?

It has become so unpleasant that we could end up with Leavers boycotting Remainer businesses and vice versa. I'll boycott lawyers, journalists, academics, Prosecco and foie gras, etc. Although I'll make an exception for doctors! And Remainers can boycott plumbers, electricians, mechanics, farmers, food, etc.

It's like Groundhog Day, only with each iteration things are getting worse, not better.

It’s obvious now, even to the dumbest Remoaners, what was obvious to everyone else from the start, that if they’d butted out and we’d had a decent PM then we would have had a fantastic deal years ago.

As it is all they’ve done is to bugger up the deal that has been achieved.

However, there is still some hope. My dream scenario is that the Remoaners and their lawyers continue to cause so much disruption that we end up with the hardest of Brexits. And a government of proper Conservatives.

You mean - a government of ghosts. All proper Conservatives are dead.

There are plenty outside parliament! We just need to replace most of the current lot.

I don't think anything can change in this country without a revolution. Even major scandals can be swept under the carpet: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-50107320

What would a UK 21st century revolution look like?

AKA as the "no true Tory puts backstop in his Withdrawal Agreement" fallacy.

Or France. But, no, I struggle to visualize that in the UK.

Barcelona? But there is still hope that this will hold off the riots:
