^ This is not about individuals to decide whether they want one chlorinated chicken, but about a government having to guarantee buying masses of said stuff from the US.

Trump just bullied the EU to buy vast amounts of soy beans no one needs or wants here, to make up for his chinese tariff losses.

Boris ask the BBC why they have robbed pensioners of their free tv licence and now plan to spend £1 Million on adverts to get the young back watching the BBC.

More money wasted by the BBC and what is Boris going to do?......NOTHING I BET.

Actually on this matter he is quite correct, not that I'm overjoyed at the prospect.

"Under normal constitutional processes in Britain, when a government collapses, the leader of the opposition is called on to form a government"

It would appear there is a level this Tory traitor will not stoop to.

But is it necessary, that the leader of that party has to be the PM? Finland's late-president Mauno Koivisto was never elected to the Eduskunta (Parliament of Finland) and he never served as leader of the Social Democratic Party. Despite this, he served twice as prime minister (22.3.1968–14.5.1970 and 6.5.1979–26.1.1982) and after second term he was elected by Eduskunta to become Finland's 8th president (at the time, parliament selected president, not public).

Boris Johnson will tell EU leaders there needs to be a new Brexit deal when he makes his first trip abroad as PM later this week.

The UK will leave the EU on 31 October with or without a deal, he will insist.

However, No 10 said there will be "very little discussion" of Brexit during the meetings in France and Germany.

I suspect he'll be wasting his breath and if you read the article in full you'll see 'Project Fear' is in full swing.

The road to non-deral Brexit: terms, timetables and conditions explained:



https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-49004486


It gets tight at the end, and a legal battle at the supreme court is likely. I do not like such most profound political course plotting being decided by judges. Because judges are not responsible to the public, but responsible to encrypted administrative rules - this and not more is what laws are. And many use them to hide behind them.



We have experience with EU-related and Euro-related conflicts in Germany being decided by the Bundesverfassungsgericht, our highest court. They are almost all very bad, for the courts proved to be cowardly and very obedient - not to say: submissive - to EU and the ECB.

I see the nameless one spouting off the usual promises vote for me and all will be dandy. I will never vote Labour while that thing and that things gang of loony headbanger only agenda is to bankrupt the country because they can not add up 2 + 2.

I will not vote for any political party at the moment as all of them are unfit to vote for. They all have there internal faults and all of them twist bend and turn the truth inside out. I will not vote for the sweet lies, try telling the truth all the time I dare you.

Surely this can't be the Euro sceptic (since 1983) they are quoting?

"After Brexit the government will introduce a new, fairer immigration system that prioritises skills and what people can contribute to the UK, rather than where they come from."
A Downing Street spokeswoman added that "tougher criminality rules" for those coming to the UK will be introduced.

Somebody will try to make a big deal of this, but - isn't that just sounding like old-fashioned plain reason...? I wish this view would spread all over Europe.
