Yeah, it does get a little bit Mr Bean at the end but curious to find out if it eventually pops up in some newspaper or snopes.com. Oh well.

Quote

If democratic aliens came down from Mars and looked at the EU referendum result, they’d be compelled to take the view that the UK, hopelessly fragmented by de-industrialisation and neoliberalism, is now finished as a political entity.

Covid has come at the right time for our administration, many have taken their eyes off the Brexit ball and its thundering along in the background without us realising (myself included. So many other things to worry about!)

We've got little over a month to avoid a no deal brexit, it's not looking good, but at the same time I wouldn't be surprised by an 11th hour capitulation from the Brits. Trying to recover from the covid recession on top of a no deal scenario would be a total fucking nightmare.
