Good to see the EU's much vaunted 'European Values' on display again tonight.

Is a Brexit deal close to being done? The phrase "difficult but possible" is now being bandied around. Personally I'm expecting a deal to be done but it will be the UK capitulating to the EU demands - the EU's puppet MPs in our parliament have undermined our negotiating position again, so that was always going to be the case. The net effect of this will be that when the people are finally allowed to have a say in a general election, I and a few million others I suspect will be voting for the Brexit Party. This makes a marxist government led by Jeremy Corbyn more likely but people are sick of being mugged off by the Tories.

Interesting development this morning is that a group of "people's vote" MPs are off to Brussels to beg the EU not to do a deal with the UK.

Trump ambushed Harry Dunn’s parents by revealing the woman responsible for the teenager’s death was waiting to meet them at the White House.

The couple were invited to the Oval Office on Tuesday after travelling to the U.S. in the hope of pressuring Sacoolas to return to Britain to face justice. U.S. national security adviser Robert O’Brien, who was present for the talks with Trump, told the couple “quite emphatically” that Sacoolas “is never coming back” to Britain.

Deal has been done, but DUP won't support it.

A vote in parliament is scheduled for Saturday (normally parliament is closed at the weekend), however remoaner activists have already issued a legal challenge to prevent parliament voting on this deal. It wouldn't surprise me if the EU come out and say that they won't offer the UK an extension if this deal is rejected, ensuring its passing in the HoC.

It pays to go legit. Just 13 years after forsaking violence, the Irish have fully reclaimed their entire island. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

So people are saying what a great deal this is, it looks beurocratically more complicated than the backstop was, with more room to administrative mistakes.

Is it really an improvement to backstop?

Yup, sucks for the Northern Irish who will be stuck under the EU yoke for the forseeable future. I actually think that the deal breaks the principles of consent in the Good Friday Agreement so wouldn't be surprised to see things changed in the courts down the line.

It's an improvement to the backstop because literally nothing could be worse than the anti-democratic backstop. A clean break Brexit is vastly superior, but I don't blame Boris for coming up with this deal given the way his hands have been tied by our parliament.

Yeah well poor Boris wanted this job so bad. Now he has it.

This is the guy who said 75k plus expenses wasn't enough "to live on". Out of touch neolibrasist idiots all of them.
