    No thanks!

    Wrong part of the forum - if you want a rant about B go here https://www.contractoruk.com/forums/brexit/

    You can rant about the feckwit PM and leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party here though.

    Oh dear the Democrats in the US are kicking off

    Brexit: ‘Absolutely no chance’ of US-UK trade deal passing Congress if Boris Johnson damages Good Friday Agreement, Pelosi warns | The Independent

    Nancy Pelosi has warned the UK there will be "absolutely no chance" of a trade deal with Washington passing Congress should the government override the Brexit withdrawal agreement signed by Boris Johnson.

    The Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives said Brexit could not be allowed to “imperil” the Good Friday Agreement - brokered to establish peace in Northern Ireland after years of sectarian conflict.

    It comes after Mr Johnson unveiled plans to override key elements of the Brexit deal with the EU regarding Northern Ireland.

    In a statement on Wednesday Ms Pelosi said: "The Good Friday Agreement is the bedrock of peace in Northern Ireland and an inspiration for the whole world.

    "Whatever form it takes, Brexit cannot be allowed to imperil the Good Friday Agreement, including the stability brought by the invisible and frictionless border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland.

    This is all an act by the Tories to enrage their supporters against the EU. Then, when Brexit goes t1ts up, as it will, the Tories can again blame the evil EU. The Tories know that they are cornered so this is their last gasp effort to turn the public against the EU.

    Yeah, but if the US kick off again, even the dimmest might begin to understand how misled they've been. Except for...

    Our leaders, who people then re-voted back in with a majority, signed this legally binding agreement. No one forced them to as they had a majority. They whipped their MPs to support the WA. If you want to get mad with someone, try Bojo and his Eton pals

    You're missing the point. For gammony cretins like Owly, it's always someone else's fault.

    It is someone else's fault - Bojo and his Eton pals Oh yeah, and the gullible idiots who voted for them

    As I've said before ... no one who voted for the Tories have a right to complain. We said this would happen, and they still voted for them so there is no excuse. They need to own their decision to put the Tories into power.

    Well yeh, but don't forget the only other option at the time was that lunatic Hugo Chavez admirer Corbyn. A dead spider would have been a better option than that. Doubt EU issue was the main driver of the Tory vote.

    Not as though Germy Carbuncle was a huge EU fan anyway.
