Boris Johnson ‘could face prison time’ if he breaks law in pursuit of no-deal Brexit.

The prime minister will be in “contempt of court” and will face the same punishment as any other citizen, Lord MacDonald, the former director of public prosecutions, warned.

I am on the remain face of the sphere, but i kind of agree that we need to be breaking laws. Not UK law though. We should have broken the EU's rule that we can't negotiate trades while still in the EU.

Clearly that rule was written to ensure no member states got preferential treatment. It was not written under the perspective of a country planning to exit. As such we should have been able to prospectively negotiate looking forward to a post brexit Britain as long as the effects of those negotiations only came into being after Britain left the EU. It was forbidding the UK from prospectively seeking trade deals in advance of Brexit which gave the threat of 'No Deal' the power to paralyse the entire Brexit negotiations.

The rule against Britain being able to plan for Brexit was essentially the EU putting the No Deal gun in Britains hands and forcing Britain to point said gun at herself. This mobe actually made me wake up and understand the Eurosceptic point of view more sympathetically.

Boris Johnson forced into retreat after threatening to break the law to deliver Brexit.

In private conversations with colleagues, Johnson has assured senior colleagues that he will "abide by the law," according to the Times. Downing Street's initial threats simply to break the law and refuse to seek an extension now appear to have vanished, with senior cabinet ministers including Robert Buckland, the justice secretary, and Nicky Morgan, the culture secretary, thought to be ready to resign if Johnson did refuse to uphold the rule of law.

EU officials reject Boris Johnson claim of 'huge progress' in Brexit talks.

Johnson told the Mail on Sunday there were “real signs of movement” in Berlin, Paris and Dublin on getting rid of the backstop, the persistent stumbling block to a Brexit agreement. But EU officials involved in talks with Johnson’s envoy, David Frost, have dismissed his upbeat account.

EU official calls for a European Empire at LibDem conference, applauded.

At least he's being honest I suppose, Nick Clegg, a previous LibDem leader (now Facebook exec) told us all in 2016 that an EU Army was 'a dangerous fantasy'.
