Depends on what they want more. Johnson in jail or a Brexit extension.

I don’t want to leave the EU, but the thought of locking up Boris Johnson is damn tempting….


We can have both, if someone else asks for it :datass:

There is nothing wrong with current LED light bulbs. Yes, they cost about £25 but they last forever. They're excellent. Also changed the one in my kitchen this year (from the old tube).

I think people that are incandescent with rage must still be thinking of those shitty energy lights from 2000 that took a while to get to full beam and then gave you a headache.

Despite his history of lying, cheating and failing, there are still a lot of people out there that think “Boris has something up his sleeve!”.

I guess anything is possible, but is there anything in Johnson’s history that could lead anybody to believe he is capable of finding a loophole that would allow him to crash us out without any deal?

What he is doing is playing up to the Leavers out there, Johnson knows he will be forced to send the letter (or delegate sending it) and so he needs to appear like he is being forced to. There’s nothing up his sleeve, he’s just conning people. Again.

I mean I think most people are aware that what he has got up his sleeve is that he's an habitual liar and that he's going to resort to the con approach. Only the most deluded idiots think there is anything more elaborated going on!

I feel this is akin to Alex Jones trying to admit in court that he is playing a "character" in his shows. Once legal powers are involved bullshit that would go down in public/the press quickly goes out the window.

On the other hand, Hungarian officials were seen coming out of a building the cabinet were holding an emergency meeting in, so he could well have a veto agreed with them or something equally outrageous (sovereignty!).

Johnson's number one priority is Johnson. The idea that he was willing to offer himself up as a Brexit martyr was always unlikely.

He and Cummings are bluster and pomp, nothing more.

The trouble is there are still a hell of a lot of deluded idiots out there.

Also worth pointing out, with the new prorogation of Parliament he doesn't have to answer questions on this in PMQs.

Could be Hungary using the threat of a veto to get favours from other EU countries. Might benefit them more to do that and avoid the impact of no deal on the EU compared to whatever Johnson can promise them and really angering the rest of the EU.

Johnson wants an election but is also proroguing so that he can have a Queen’s Speech.

The two things do not go together, a Queen’s Speech is to set out the governments agenda, which is meaningless if there is an election shortly after. He also knows that he has to request an extension so closing down Parliament isn’t going to force through No Deal.

He is either trying to use the Queen for Tory propaganda or he is trying to close this session of Parliament so he can bring back May’s Deal.

I think every light in my house is now LED, wouldn't ever go back to traditional (i.e. gooseberry fool) bulbs.

LED bulbs are pretty cheap these days as well, I think I got a pack of spotlight ones recently that worked out at not much more that £1 per bulb. :datass:

But yeah that poll is insane, hopefully lots of the people who think like that are on the way out anyway. :dread:

Ack, they just want the LED light bulb traitors to hang from a noose. Fairly normal behaviour.
