    Trump's progress

    I agree, I thought the way he was received on UK soil with an honour guard was extremely well done and respectful.

    That is what I thought I had read on here, but it has just been repeated on the half hourly news update.

    Just heard a report on LBC about another Police incident in the Zizzis restaurant that the Skripal's ate at.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Kenneth Clarke remains very committed to the european project since its inception. The big beasts are no longer centre stage.

    Charlie is still alive and reportedly speaking to the Police?

    I was having a look around to see what the Russian perspective and came across this article by George Galloway on RT. He pointed out the difficulty in taking seriously the changing story which many have already highlighted on this thread. "The 44-year-old mother of three, Dawn Sturgess, was both an alcoholic and a heroin user, living in a hostel, but with a boyfriend – Charlie Rowley. He, too, is literally clinging to life in intensive care. This sorry, tragic story has been the casus belli for a new wave of attacks upon Russia and even President Putin. Grown men and women, educated men and women, working in media and politics in Britain are actually seriously speculating that Russian assassins sought to murder this tragic couple. And that the president of Russia, in the closing stages of Russia's triumphant World Cup, ordered the hit! The Amesbury story has even more holes than the Skripal story – and that is saying something. I will return in depth to those holes and that story on another day, but I wanted to leave you with, if you will pardon the pun, a taste of it." It is getting so convoluted that it really is a stretching credibility.

    White paper is out tomorrow, negotiations continue on Monday. Barnier gave an indication of Eu time frames yesterday. “After 12 months of negotiations we have agreed on 80% of the negotiations,” Barnier said, adding that he was determined to reach agreement on the remaining 20% by October or November. Not sure of Parliament vote.

    Over the Border (Brexit thread)

    A rather blatant hit piece from the NY Times entitled "Boris Johnson Has Ruined Britain" released. Seeking to weaken him before a leadership challenge?

    Fair do's, Khan vs Morgan on Good morning Britain isn't going to be a celebrated debate. In previous encounters Morgan seems to be firmly ensconced in a mainstream position whilst covering himself in the mantle of being a champion of the working classes. I did find it unusual that Morgan took up this position over the impending Battle of Britain, as did his co-host. In fact in the interview Khan seemed injured and commented on Morgan's position.

    Consumate political operator, no doubt about that. I dont think he measures up as a man of conviction. Whenever he is speaking he looks to be referring to an inner set of guidelines when forming a response. I may be being unfair on him though

    Over the Border (Brexit thread)

    I have a feeling this forum is bit of beacon for those kinds of people. So you didn't mean this sardonically? In what sense did you mean it? Thanks for bringing it over here @billfunk

    Piers Morgan seems really angry as he interviews Sadiq Khan. Rather unpredictably Khan goes into lawyer mode as he carefully words his responses. Notice the flawlees use by Khan of the nlp style hand gestures a la Toni Blair. These politicians really do all go on the same management courses.

    Van lady makes a very good but seemingly too subtle point. As nobody is prepared to yield on whether Brexit is a good idea or not, could I kindly suggest that we all shut the fuck up about it and talk about the soon to be forced resignation of the PM. Treason May has just tried to undermine parliamentary democracy by carrying out her own private negotiations in the absence of her parliamentary colleagues input as witnessed by @Long time lurking twitter post above. The thread title of Treason is remarkably correct if this is proven to be the case. Two more resignations today and still the she clings on like a dung beetle to her own particularly wretched and stenching pile of dung, the Chequers creation. It is clear that there is definitely no plan B and Theresas own personal turd is going to be pushed and obfuscated through at the cost of her own political career. To continue the metaphor at what point is the party going to pull the chain? I have to wonder if Treasons only reason for continuing to support her Chequers paper is that the establishment had miscalculated that both the proles and the MPs would be sufficently distracted by the soccerball and Novichuck St to actually put a stop to it.

    10.30pm. Three cabinet resignations, Brexit Minister, Foreign Secretary and Health Secretary. 40 plus letters waiting at the 1922 Committee Chairman's office. Government Brexit strategy and white paper in absolute tatters with no public or Parliamentary support other than the most mealy mouthed. The Foreign secretary has stated that there is no plan B or contingency I don't think that May has any of the leadership abilty to bring her party onside and her Chequers debacle has backfired into one of the greatest political clusterfrumps in living memory. How on earth is big business and the masters of the european project going to enforce our compliance and loyalty to the project?

    The leadership must be up for grabs. Boris would not have shown his hand early so must be certain that he had enough backing in the party to be installed without another bloodbath in the party. Interesting to see how Boris is going to tread the line of satisfying the obvious demand from the city and tory grandees for the UK to remain and the requirement of the voters to really Brexit. If the people are denied this the loss of faith in the political system could get very interesting indeed. Cometh the hour, cometh the man.
