Britain’s former ambassador to the European Union Ivan Rogers has predicted that Britain will leave the post-Brexit transition at the end of this year with no deal, describing Boris Johnson as a Trumpite politician who wants the EU to fail.

“Johnson and his team persuaded themselves that the EU would be so panicked that they would give in eventually. And it didn’t happen. Boris didn’t, I believe, start off as a true no dealer, but he seems now formally in the camp with Dominic Cummings: ‘to hell with it, we should walk away’,” Sir Ivan told The Irish Times.

Keep voting Tory. It's working well.

The Tories seem to be some weird quantum state between climbing down and doubling down. They seem to be trying to get a deal over fishing rights with the EU and backing down to their backbenchers and the North Ireland Sec has said the EU has acted in good faith. Then Johnson has said they haven't been acting in good faith and Raab is trying to win the Americas round.

Yes it's illegal but if we all agree to do it that's ok.

Never rely on Tory rebels for anything, ever.

Why are they doing this? Surely this doesn't solve any of the issues with the bill?

Course not.

They were never seriously going to rebel (their Tories after all). This just gives them an excuse.

It's not actually illegal as long as the entire gang agrees robbing the bank is a good idea.

I actually believe I've been sucked into The Thick of It. It's the only explanation. Nothing else makes sense.

I kind of want to see the country burn now. Obviously, I'd like my wages to be paid in Euros before that.

You'll probably get your wish. I'm really not looking forward to next year.

Who'd have thought other countries would want us to obey international law and deal with any breach so bluntly.

We've got 'em right where we want 'em boys! They'll be lining up to do deals with us now.

The far right Tory reaction to Biden was as expected.


John Redwood, a leading Brexiter, said: “Trade deals are nice to have but not essential. We did not have a trade deal with the US when we were in the EU. Getting back full control of our laws, our money and our borders is essential.”
