    So the Brexit campaigners were claiming that he would do something, and he said they were wrong.

    Is that scaremongering, or responding to false claims made by known liars?
    The truth scares liars.

    It's the only plan that seems half sensible for Tory Scum - use tariffs as proxy for VAT increase (but without breaking manifesto promise), cut VAT a bit, income tax a bit and declare they've won.

    We're not allowed to talk about that, remember?

    There must be lots of solutions to it, but none that anyone can think of.

    I believe in democracy. Thats why every few years we have democratic votes to decide who should represent us in various levels of government.

    Trump can't deliver a US-UK trade deal without approval from Congress and as far as they're concerned the UK is at the back of the queue.

    That's a lie, you're a scaremonger, etc.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Sounds like sabotage and treason. The true democratic defenders of the folk demand an Enabling Act.
