Like him or loathe him or loaf him even 🍞:

The article 24 scenario is an interesting one which Farage suggested while in Europeon Parliment a couple of days ago. Juncker, Verhofstadt and Co. are normally seen sneering at anything Nige says however they seemed to have been caught unusally listening to him properly here, all the while looking expressionless, almost as though they fear that solution too as it makes things much easier and simpler. And they donít like other countries like Italy warming to the idea of leaving too now do they.

A link for the video below:


Iím not saying every word he says perfect, but boy didnít it make Juncker, Verhofstadt etc shut up and listen quietly

That didn't make me loaf him (or this weird idea that the UK is somehow just entitled to have every cake and eat all of them that he peddles with so many Brexiteers) any less. The "arrogance" Tusk has been accused of this week shows just how deluded some of our politicians are. I know much of it is politicking but if any of them do actually believe 27 other countries should bend over backwards for us after we, ourselves, asked for this... well... game over. UK politics is officially dead in that case.

I think what's consistently censored from all arguments around Brexit on this weird island they once called the United Kingdom is that Ireland and the EU have every right to strike a deal that works for them too. It's like we're trying to redefine the word "negotiation" over here. Do Brexiteers just expect the EU negotiators to ignore the fact that 27 countries are relying on them to get this right for all of them? 1 vs 27. If you were one of those wielding influence during the referendum campaign who was somehow ignorant that those would be the odds (or worse, like most people with half a brain, you knew they would be) but still hurled us into this mess then yes, there should be a special place in hell for you because you're either clinically insane or just an utter imbecile.
