Wasted millions on those 'get ready for Brexit - October 31st' ads

Will they get any backlash for it?

Of course not.

Mate, they are Conservatives, brilliant with money and all that.

The biggest public information campaign in history which told us absolutely nothing and only served to remind idiots that Brexit means Brexit just before an election - funded by the taxpayer.

For one annoying example, the Chancellor of the Exchequer literally worked at Deutsche Bank, in the department that structured collateralised debt obligations, in the run-up to the financial crisis, and for some reason nobody ever mentions it.

Not. Labour.

A financial impact assessment of his actions might be instructive.

Johnson shouting and answering no questions during PMQs. Corrupt scummy clearing in the woods

The UK is planning to invest in Argentina’s controversial oil shale industry using a £1bn export finance deal intended to support green energy, according to government documents seen by the Guardian.

UK Export Finance, the government’s foreign credit agency, promised in 2017 to offer loans totalling £1bn to help UK companies export their expertise in “infrastructure, green energy and healthcare” to invest in Argentina’s economy.

Instead official records, released through a freedom of information request, have revealed the government’s plan to prioritise support for major oil companies, including Shell and BP, which are fracking in Argentina’s vast Vaca Muerta shale heartlands.

One government memo, uncovered by Friends of the Earth, said that while Argentina’s clean energy sector was growing, it was “Argentina’s huge shale resources that offer the greatest potential” for the UK.

Fracking sites could become a permanent blot on the landscape because of a weakness in decommissioning rules, according to the public spending watchdog.

The government made false assurances that the Environment Agency would be able to pursue fracking companies and landowners for the costs of restoring sites, the National Audit Office (NAO) has said.

Its report, published today, also questions the government’s claims that fracking will yield economic benefits and be consistent with Britain’s climate targets. The report is a further blow to the shale gas industry, which has already warned that fracking may not be viable in the UK unless limits on earth tremors caused by the process are relaxed.

Tory filth lying? What a surprise.

They've really run down the policing of environmental damage and it's clearly intentional.

Johnson has no respect for anything does he be it the rule of law or parliamentary procedure. I dread to think how he'll behave or what destruction he would oversee if he got a majority.

I'd like to think that even dyed in the wool Tories are disgusted by what he is doing but given that his actions have hardly come as a surprise, and he was elected leader of the Tories by a big majority, there is a fair chance most don't give a shit and are lapping it up.

Apparently, Johnson due to address HoC after the Queen's Speech vote and is expected to say that, on Monday, they'll put forward something asking for a GE again.. I suppose that sdepends on whether they lose the vote - though I thought it was dependent upon the response from the EU. Perhaps they've had confirmation on an extension?

It's going to be very interesting what kind of motion is actually proposed on Monday.

The letter he has written to Corbyn is here:

Edit: Mogg confirms it will be a motion under the FTPA. In which case, Labour should think very, very carefully before they agree to it.
