So, having not just voted through the "oven ready" Withdrawal Agreement that he fought an election campaigning for, but also voted to rush it through Parliament in 3 days to "get Brexit done", ignoring protests that this would prevent proper scrutiny, Iain Duncan Smith is now whinging that the Withdrawal Agreement that he voted for isn't a good deal after all because of some stuff "buried in the fine print, unnoticed by many" due to the lack of proper scrutiny that he voted to prevent. This is world-beating stupid.

Never has 'didn't know what you were voting for' been more apt.

Penny drops.  Brexiter finally realises that Brexit is a bit shit.  It's almost funny.

Surely it's their job to read the small print and make sure these 'nasties' are spotted? Jesus wept.

Well yes. That's why it was so unusual that they rushed it through in 3 days, which denied Parliament the chance to scrutinise it properly, sweeping aside all objections that such scrutiny was vital for such an important agreement. IDS voted for that as well as the WA itself and is no wailing about not just the agreement itself but also the lack of scrutiny that he campaigned and voted for. It's almost like they're a bunch of fucking idiots who couldn't be trusted to run a bath, isn't it?

It would be some relief if you could just ignore them as idealogues, but they are not.  There is no ideology, strategy or philosophy apart from 'Let me have power'.

Some MP's did their job and voted against it because it was shite, they were the more intelligent ones who subsequently lost the whip.

Most importantly, there will be no "ever closer union". That's what I voted for (or against).

There's also a plan apparently to have an internal border preventing lorry drivers from entering Kent without the correct paperwork.

That will be peak Johnson, he has already managed to create a border within the Union accelerating its break up, creating a border within England will be an even greater achievement.
