Re: Are you ready for NO BREXIT?

The Danish Brexit act is a temporary scheme and will apply until replaced by a permanent solution. The Danish Brexit act applies to British citizens and their family members, who are legally residing in Denmark on the withdrawal date in accordance with EU-rules on free movement. This in itself will not affect many tourists who visit cities like copenage on their vacations and regularly use bus rental copenhagen for their activities in Denmark. The law will also apply to frontier workers who work in Denmark on the withdrawal date while residing in another EU / EEA-country.

As the other countries see, they prepared for it. However, new UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he plans to renegotiate the Brexit deal agreed with the EU by his predecessor Theresa May. He says he is committed to leaving on 31 October come what may.

Mr Johnson's plan is to negotiate with the EU to remove the Northern Ireland backstop from the withdrawal agreement (WA). The backstop was designed to ensure there could be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland. (It would keep the UK in a customs union with the EU if there is no free trade agreement that avoids a hard border ie physical infrastructure and checks on goods.)

BoJo created his share of myths too, when he wrote for The Telegraph. Some people are just pathological liers and, admittedly, pretty good at it.

Yes, the advantage of having gone to Eton. Some of my best friends are old Etonians.

Why is Charles Stewart Parnell trending? Ghost of Home Rule leader haunts House of Commons in Brexit debate

https://www.independent.ie/business/bre ... 64850.html

And as the debate gathered pace, the Conservative MP declared: "The approach taken today is the most unconstitutional use of this house since the days of Charles Stewart Parnell when he tried to bung up parliament."

Nigel Farage: ‘I’ve long been a great admirer of Charles Stewart Parnell’

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland ... -1.4009139

A secret admirer, because there are no records on this, well, at least up to yesterday when JRM mentioned him.

Mr. Farage: I worked with Parnell. he was a friend, you are no Parnell.

Boris is clever; it would be a Pyrrhic victory. To quote Pyrrhus hisself “Another victory like that and we are done for.”

Presumably Labour would prefer to contest an election where either Johnson has asked Brussels for an extension and thus incurred the wrath of Farage or one where he is dead in a ditch (just adding a little more detail to the "or die" part of his private election promise). In addition, since nobody, including friends and family, seems to trust the dynamic duo of Johnson and Cummings any further than they can throw them, they are disinclined to give them much rope.
