I would suggest that anyone who saw Boris Johnson as a trusted source of information in the first place deserves to be looked down upon.

Though it's besides the point as there isn't going to be a second referendum; the Tories as a whole are too fucking stupid/nakedly self-interested and Theresa May is too weak/power-hungry to overcome that.

I'm not so sure about this now. I think the tectonic plates are shifting in favour of one on the final agreement and arrangement (I don't like the term 'deal'). If, as seems likely, it is unacceptable in different ways to either the hard core leavers, the soft remainers, the soft leavers, and however else with divide it, a plebiscite on the final terms would allow the parties to wash their hands without having to support something they find utterly distasteful.

It wouldn't be a second referendum because the question and the extent of knowledge will be vastly different to how things were in June 2016. In parliamentary terms, if the original referendum was second reading (do you agree with the principle), this would be a third reading (do you agree with the execution).

My view is that it's going to be a Hobson's choice and the UK will crash out with no deal.

I got my gran's birth certificate from Irelaid with Kern's help (he did everything). As I opened it, MrsA helpfully said "It could turn out we're cousins".

We're all cousins, when you go back far enough.

We're all probably directly descended from Charlemagne and Mohammed.

You're probably directly descended from Gazza and Mekon.

Atilla the Hun is probably a better bet, if I understand the time periods required. Although I've always though of MaliA as more of a Alexander the Great type, to be honest.

The right wing press commentariat outrage at the Cheddar Man story has given much entertainment over the last week or so.

I also am outraged, but solely because nobody thought to call him Cheddar George.

How did you manage to spell both of his names wrong? :)

I think uni fees will go up post brexit, and it'll end up like America.

I note in Ireland it's €3k a year, so I'm a bit tempted to move in 10 years to qualify if all looks to be the same.

General cost of living in Ireland is way higher though. Even in rural Ireland in the town my wife’s family live stuff costs more than in London.

I have no idea what anything costs in Dublin because I'm drunk every time I'm there
