Can't Brexit start soft and then get harder and harder until separation?
How you play that hand depends on whether it contains a Johnson or not.
Again, the ultimate configuration is a UK within the EU, but without power.
So a softer and softer Brexit, generally.
Flaccid Brexit? Flaccit?
The EU could give them a hand…
I actually think it'll be good for the English psyche, in the long term, to rid themselves of post-Imperial delusions of grandeur. But that might be better in the new thread.
It'll probably be far more coherent than whatever (the remains of) the British government can do by then.
It's going to result in that, but not as a result of any careful planning; rather, it will be a result of the lack of it.
Let's see if she can last out the week first (actually quite likely), otherwise July really might be the end of May. We should have an interesting choice of thread title for the next contender anyway. I was going to suggest the last poster on page 120, but that happens to be me, so how about page 125?
Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson… is the dearth of capable politicians (assuming this is not an outright contradiction) that dire? oh yes it is, this is the Conservative and Unionist Party of the United Kingdom!
So that's where you get your so-called jokes from!
I can't imagine anyone else has enough support to do better, so I'm sure she'll keep her job.
I do nominate you to make a new thread though. Get going with it.
So every 2500 posts we get a new thread?
So, in the spirit of posting more would-be useful content:
Farage threatens to lead UKIP for third time unless Brexit ‘put back on track’
One of the comments under that article reads as follows: This guy [Farage] calling a soft Brexit a "betrayal" is the same guy i watched during the Brexit campaign saying "Norway does all right, why can't we be like Norway?" and presenting EEA membership as the obvious post-leave option OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
I actually made an audible laugh on the bus home today when I saw BOJO resigned.
Though it is funnier seeing some of his sycophants trying to portray it as a "principles" resignation. Pffft. Since when did BOJO have "principles"?
didn't he have them in skool?
Those are almost my thoughts exactly.
Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is of noble birth even if not of noble behaviour, so watch your tongue, commoner.
*Searches the internet to check what piece of literature or pop-culture Takhisis in referencing in this joke*
Nope, actually, really, actually his real name.
We like our bumbling fools to have vaguely blue blood, don't you know?
We have a few of those too. Our former defense minister (who's married to Bismarck's great great granddaughter and had to resign because he cheated on his dissertation btw) comes to mind, but their names are usually less whacky.
The dude's fulll name is Karl-Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Joseph Sylvester Buhl-Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg
Then there's AfD Deputy Leader Beatrix Amelie Ehrengard Eilika von Storch.
German noble names seem to be more long winded, but the English ones just sound funnier.
He is not really blue blood in the traditional sense of the word, his parents were not aristocrats and he was a scholarship boy at eton. From his wiki he is descended from royalty, but out of wedlock.
Also I do not think he is a bumbling fool, I am sure it is an intentional act he puts on. He is clearly a self-centred skeeming *&%£ though.
Separate names with a comma.
