but I also liked Michael Portillo on that.  He sounded pretty reasonable, which I simply couldn't square with his political career!

Having done some TV work with Portillo  Yes he was a generally nice bloke during the afternoon we spent together (shocking pink shirt aside!)

 See the fella who replaced Davis as Brexit wallah, Raab, admitted in a speech that he hadn't quite understood that so much of our trade passed through Dover.   Smiley

Slowly, the penny starts to drop.

We will do a deal with the EU, because there is no alternative to that.  (Contrary to the Brexit bullshit we've had to listen to for several years now, we need them way more than they need us.)  And the terms of deal?  The terms will be whatever the EU decides they will be.  It's called realpolitik.

I'm weary of this nonsense now.

 See that Johnson's bro has resigned as Transport Minister over Brexit.  He thinks May's deal will leave the UK significantly worse off with no say in what happens in the EU..... JRM's vassal state, or in a state of chaos, if it's no deal. He intends to campaign for a second referendum, so that the electorate can ratify what they want.

What annoys me (wrong thread?) is this use of "vassal state".

A vassal state was a weaker state that would be obligated to support the pre-eminent state in supporting military campaigns.  This is a pseudo-educated phrase misapplied.

The only recent example of the UK acting as a "vassal state" was the Iraq War with the unelected (in the UK) George Bush directing one man, Tony Blair and a few of his appointees.

The basic problem is that there never was a single concept of Brexit.

Look at the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution etc.  Knew what they were against.  Rather painful and prolonged consequences searching for what they did want.
