    BREXIT

    It's because these Eton boys treat Westminster as a personal debating club. Johnson has absolutely no morals or ideals. As Pete says, he just wants to win. He couldn't care less what happens to the country.

    BREXIT

    You said it far more succinctly that I did! Johnson always knew this but he couldn't be the Prime Minister who breaks up the United Kingdom (even though they're not). The official name of the Tories is the Conservative and Unionist Party. It's his own party and the DUP who have been stopping...

    BREXIT

    I have a theory that it was Boris Johnson who came up with this Athena reference rather than Varadkar. I knew about that Jeremy Vine anecdote and I don't for a minute believe Johnson is a bumbling fool - he knows what he's doing and he's dangerous. I think Johnson is looking for a way to get a...

    BREXIT

    I get the feeling that some sort of "One Nation" centrist party (a bit like Macron's En Marche) will emerge over the coming couple of months.

    BREXIT

    It looks like Johnson is snookered. He's going to call for an election on the 14th... wait, no, 15th... wait, no 16th October (the 14th and 15th are a Jewish festival and Jewish can't vote on those days). Because of the Fixed Term Parliament Act (2011) he needs to have a two thirds majority...

    BREXIT

    It's quite extreme what Boris Johnson is doing. The proroguing of Parliament may seem abstract, and only for a few days, but it's very serious. It sets a precedent. Johnson and his government have tested the waters with this and it means that if it's unchallenged, they could do it again and for...

    I got a ticket and it was cold. Still ate it.

    BREXIT

    Johnson is looking to ramp up the nationalism. He will try to rabble rouse the disaffected and get them frothing at the mouth. On the other side, there are thousands of young people who are really, really angry about this. It'll end in fighting.

    BREXIT

    She can't do that. Magna Carta, Cromwell's parliament and lots of subsequent legislation and procedures means the monarch is a figurehead with minimal powers. I don't there's going to be a polite way out of this.

    BREXIT

    This is fucked up. If you look at how quickly the civil wars broke out in Rwanda and in the Balkan states in the 1990's, what's happening in Britain is a serious cause of concern.

    Words and phrases that are soooo...meh! Like meh

    Once a colleague said "snorkel"... as in a brief investigation in to a process or project rather than a "deep dive". I also remember "caveat" circulating around an office I worked in. Someone used it in a meeting or a document and it caught on. Soon people were using "caveat" even when it...
