    I seem to recall him refusing to condemn antifa thugs for beating people up at some point in the past so fuck him I say.

    I’m not holding my breath but I do now at least think it’s possible. I don’t think the numbers are there for a no-confidence vote and I’m certain the numbers aren’t there for Corbyn as PM but, with connivance from that cunt Bercow, I think there’s more than a 50% chance of a binding vote preventing us from leaving without parliament approving a “deal” first (aka not leaving at all).

    I have way more experience of using Indian IT outsourcers (forced on me by company policy) than I would like. I can tell you that it has never been cheaper to use them than locally hired staff and I’ve never heard it justified by senior management in individual employee cost terms either. It’s always come down to the ability to scale up or down quickly. The kind of people making the decisions about technology are never technologists themselves so they completely fail to understand that good software and infrastructure take time, patience and consistency to produce. That means they think that being able to call TCS or whoever and have a team of 20 people in place two weeks later and then ditch them all as soon as the project finishes is somehow efficient whereas, in reality, it’s the exact opposite. Again, this is nothing to do with Indians, the same model would be equally catastrophic if it was Brits doing it for Indian companies.

    This is the most likely outcome. The cunts will vote to keep their jobs and benefits. Bercow will scupper it. He's the fall guy now.

    If Boris actually does this, and in this way that'll be fantastic. Pure class.
    I'd even actually vote for the tosser in the next election as a thumbs up for pulling off such a fantastic move..

    Ok, here’s a thought (likely not unique). If Treason May had either not held a GE or done a lot better than she did, then her surrender agreement would have made it through the commons and we’d now be a colony of the EU in perpetuity. Likewise, if she’d lost Steptoe would likely have abandoned it completely, done a WA style “deal” or otherwise put it off. It’s only because of the governments wafer thin majority that we now have some real (but small) chance of a Brexit that looks like what most people voted for.

    An ex-girlfriend of mine began to suffer colitis in later life. She went on holiday without her medication and had to be taken to hospital with a perforated intestine 4 days later, ended up losing a good portion of her intestine just from being off her regular diet and medication for well under a week.
    The preponderance of people with severe mental abnormalities also have some degree of intestinal trouble, so something like this may not be particularly unlikely.

    And why the fuck would you go to Singapore to "escape" Brexit even if it had happened? Surely a university somewhere in the EU would be the right choice if that was your problem?
