Fantastic work of fiction!

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

The Brexit Party is now consistently the most popular party in the country, topping the third straight national poll. Meanwhile the Remainer Lib Dems sink from second to fourth. If career politicians don't get us out of the corrupt EU, we'll get them out of Westminster!

My first day in Brussels as a new MEP was enough to get a taste of the astonishing privileges that go with the job. Ultimately, MEPs are just window dressing - an inconvenient but necessary doff of the cap towards fig-leaf democracy.

Tsk, tsk...

Visit to the Brexit Party [by the Electoral Commission:
The Electoral Commission visited The Brexit Party on Tuesday 21 May to review the systems it has in place to receive funds. We have concluded that the fundraising structure adopted by the party leaves it open to a high and on-going risk of receiving and accepting impermissible donations. We have made recommendations that will, if implemented by the party, achieve and maintain robust procedures for receiving funds and help it comply with its legal requirements.
Nigel Farage's Brexit Party ordered to check EVERY £25 donation for foreign cash
Nigel Farage has said that the majority of the party's funding has come from individual 'supporter' fees of £25 a time.

But parties are only required to collect information on the source of donations over £500, so there’s no way of knowing whether someone has done that using PayPal.

And there are no regulations at all governing cash given to political parties as “membership fees”, such as the £25 payment to register as a Brexit Party supporter.

The Commission also recommended the party revamp its online system to require donors to provide addresses and contact details and only accept payments from cards that match the payer’s address.

And it suggested removing the site's £500 cap on online donations because it "may encourage those who want to make a payment in excess of £500 to make multiple payments, which the Party has to monitor, identify and check for permissibility."

The report also include a lower-risk recommendation to separate the £25 supporter fees from other donations. This should be in place, the Commission say, within six months.

The Commission said they were "concerned" that the party had no written procedures for accepting the £25 supporter fees, "given that the Party’s existing funding model is based around the receipt of such payments."

The Electoral Commission's Louise Edwards told the DCMS Committee: “They need to go back and look at the payments they have received, over or under £500, and they need to satisfy themselves that they are sure those amounts of money are permissible. And if they are not, they need to forfeit those amounts of money.”

She added: "It’s for the party to satisfy themselves of that - and we’ll be watching them do that work"

Electoral Commission Chief Exec Bob Posner told the Committee that any money that the party couldn't be sure is permissible should be returned - and any money that could not be returned would be handed to the Treasury.

A spokesperson for the Brexit Party said they would be implementing the recommendations in full "to the best of our ability."
The best of the ability of Farage hardly inspires confidence...

so insane. All that leaving without a deal will settle is the uncertainty about whether we will leave without a deal - nothing else. All the real uncertainties will increase for business. it's almost tempting to hope that no-deal Brexit will happen, if only because then the morons, from Bill Cash to coffee, will realise that they were wrong - of course, at the expense of so many jobs and people stuck between this mad nation and the rest of our continent. But, it is not going happen, Alan, is it? Do you agree with me that the only conceivable end to the Bojo and Faraj madness is that our MPs, just about, are certain to stop the rot?

The failure of Brexiters all along has been to understand reality and to learn from their mistakes when they are pointed out. They just keep spouting the same old nonsense whether it's 'we'll be fine on WTO rules' or 'we'll solve the Irish problem with unspecified alternative arrangements'. But the certainly about leaving with no deal is that there will be tariffs - and no one will like them when they are imposed. And if we do away with tariffs for one country, we do away with them for all countries and let everything in: that will devastate industry and agriculture.

Will it be stopped? Who the fuck knows. I have no faith that there are sufficient MPs who are compos mentis, let alone capable of stopping this utter bloody madness. There was an Asimov novel where some humans had some superhuman skills and called those who didn't possess them 'non-comps'. I think we could appropriate that term for many of the 650 in Parliament - and just about all in Government. Anyone who cannot see the outcome of this madness must surely not be compos mentis?
