    Yes, exactly. The big Irish deal that Johnson ‘pulled off’ was quite a climb down, which is why the DUP was entirely fucked off with him. If you though our ranking in Eurovision was bad because of politics wait until you see how the brexit talks go.

    The way it works with Conservative plans over the past ten years has been this:

    1. Politician says dumb fascistic thing, ie, 'all vegetables must be
      from Britain'
    2. Outcry as left-wing people point out that reality works different,
      while right-wing papers talk about how brilliant the new policy is
    3. The policy is taken away to be looked at for a number of months, and
      either comes back in a slightly less dumb way, or is 'pending review'
    4. People who don't read the papers think that the policy is now law
      because they read about it, oooh, ages ago
    5. People who do pay attention to the news are provoked into being
      outraged about something else, and forget to fight the new slightly
      less dumb version of the policy

    We're firmly at stage 2 here. Don't forget that the UK and the EU are doing some big trade talks, so the UK needs to show that it is totally tough and wants to go it alone. There's room for some deals to be cut there, but that depends on how much of a fucking idiot the post-Brexit trade guy is

    I don’t think they want to apply for a UK-only banking license, considering the number of UK customers they have

    Amazon lost money for its first 14 years, so it’s not like this is a normal business. If your local corner shop lost money for 14 years you wouldn’t expect it to then turn into the biggest shop in town.

    I would guess that the Ayn Rand readers of the front bench (Patel et al) think that this new legislation will force companies to make new interns, trainees, etc, to fill gaps in the workforce. This is a very simplistic reading of what will happen, because most of the front bench are very simplistic people.

    It's weird, all he seems to do these days is go online and shout extremely TERFy stuff. I guess the money from Father Ted and the IT crowd means he doesn't have to work and he got radicalised by watching youtoob videos about evil trans people.

    Goosechat is great. I'm learning a lot. Schoolchat is just people yakking on about a thing they experienced historically, and it's all one-up'ing the last person.
