  1. It seems the job of Brexit secretary in a May government appears to be preparing the country for ‘no deal’ whilst May herself tries to negotiate the deal. Hence Raab’s resignation.
  2. That’s all true but I was more looking at what May should have done once she became leader. My basic premise was that she should have gotten the UK’s own house in order before triggering article 50 and going to the EU with a united position to negotiate from.
  3. Interestingly enough this is roughly what the political commentary was making of things here in Australia today. Essentially that May had an up hill battle from the start, doing a thankless task with no obvious solutions and it is to her credit that she is trying to see it through rather than squealing and running away like a number of her ministers. Personally I think the uphill battle was of her own making because she triggered article 50 and gave herself a 2 year deadline before having any idea what the UK was aiming for. There should have been cross party consultation on what sort of Brexit deal the UK wanted (Norway, Switzerland, Canada etc) and then once some sort of majority was found (even with a follow up ‘People’s vote if required) she could have triggered the clock and used the 2 years to try and improve on that preferred outcome.

    Do we reckon Turkey still has information up their sleeves to be released in due course that ties this to the Prince?

    Well Trump is now claiming the reports are true but it's all ok because he knew about the new missile sites all along apparently. Nothing to see here...

    I forgot he used to play for Monaco. It’s no wonder he wanted to have crack there.

    The first time in 8 years that the Democrats have had control of the lower house.

    A click on the twitter link would indicate 'Big Al' (the big guy) is Alex Bulter, the team masseuse. Don't know who 'smudge' is.
  10. Doesn’t ‘kicking the can down the road’ on No Deal require unanimous agreement from every member state? That makes it risky that one country decides to just get it over with and denies the request.

    He's cost us points and will cost us more. If we were aiming to finish top 2 you cant afford to drop those points.

    He's a wild card player. When it comes off it looks magic but when it doesn't (and more often than not it won't) then it can be very frustrating. There is a place for this kind of player in a side that is performing but in a side that is finding its feet he can be a liability. I think we need to be patient but he can be an asset.

    Can we just score a third and head to the showers?
