It would be quite something if the offer put forward by the UK Government is accepted by the EU, but rejected by the UK Government.

The DUP have said they will categorically not vote for anything that sees NI and rUK diverge in any way.

So there goes the majority if they want to change the status of NI.

I think this will happen, mainly because it's such a mess to begin with, and the pointless, stupid, rhetoric spewed daily which does nothing means if must be so.

Would be a strong and dangerous tactical play for the rest of the opposition to use NI as a tactical porn at the last gasp of brexit negotiations to force a no confidence issue.

Presumably this would mean that any future trade deals the UK signs will be filled with little asterisks saying "BTW, this bit doesn't apply to Northern Ireland".

Well, a machine whose action is to slowly destroy itself, rather than a Panda with an automatic rifle.

What an absolute clusterfuck.

Still, that's the world all over at the moment. Now, more the ever, I do wonder what sort of a world we're leaving for Keith Richards.

This is fucking embarrassing.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... dApp_Tweet

Quote:
Confidence early on Monday that an agreement was within reach came to nothing when, during a working lunch with the European commission president, Jean Claude Juncker, May was forced to pause discussions to take a call from Arlene Foster.

The unionist leader, whose party currently provides the Tories with a working majority in the Commons, told the British prime minister that she could not support Downing Street’s planned commitment to keep Northern Ireland aligned with EU laws.

In London, Tory Brexiters, including Iain Duncan Smith and Jacob Rees-Mogg, told the Brexit minister Steve Baker, and the prime minister’s chief of staff, Gavin Barwell, that they were also rallying behind the DUP’s stance.

Lord Trimble, a former first minister of Northern Ireland told the Guardian said Tory MPs at the meeting had shown “unanimous backing for opposition to the draft proposal he said was “minted in Dublin”.

The development raises fresh questions about May’s ability to deliver on any deal she proposes to the 27 member states, and has filled diplomats in Brussels with a deep foreboding for future talks, should they develop in the new year to take in the future relationship.

Diplomats were waiting for two hours in a negotiating room at the Council of Ministers headquarters, for a meeting that had been planned to follow the Juncker-May lunch. When it became clear the two sides could not get an agreement, the officials were sent home.

Amazing! This is just the warm up as well. I wonder how much of a shitshow it will be if/when they ever get to the actual negotiations.

I'm so impressed that the opposition party are taking so many shots at this massive open goal and about to bring the government down.

Oh, sorry. Wrong timeline.

Even refused to go on Today this morning after the DUP and Tories had already knocked it back. Kier Starmer could have gone on and kicked the absolute shit out of the process but no, sit on your fucking hands and get the outcome you want and fuck the consequences just hoping it leads to a Tory collapse so you can get your hands on the reins of power just as the entire country is heading off a cliff.

Yeah, you don't even have to worry about upsetting Brexit supporters. Just bang on about 'Tory Brexit causing chaos' and everyone would be happy. But no.

To have a Prime Minister being destroyed by Europe is par for the course for contemporary British Conservatives; to be destroyed by Ireland is practically historical re-enactment. To be undone by both would be a towering achievement for her.

Totally agree. It's painfully dire.

Both of these get a sizeable "good work, fellow".

Half of me feels sorry for May - she's in a basically no-win situation now, with no real way to square the hard Brexit press and backbenchers against the grinding realities that are now hitting home, and she doesn't appear to be up to the task of handling it. Then I remember that it's her own bloody fault she's here, and she really could have sorted all this out before notifying under Article 50 and then calling a snap election and drawing arbitrary red lines everywhere and taking 6 months to agree something that could have been sorted in the first week and I stop.
