Aye. The Tories have shown absolutely no sign of even pretending to have a serious stab and negotiating a proper trade deal. All they've got to do now is sit on their hands for a year to get their no-deal Brexit while blaming the EU for being intransigent.
Wrong.
When Boris was asked during the election whether he would allow the UK to crash out without a deal, he replied: "We have a deal".

...so the pretence is there.

Yet the interviewer (I think is was Sky) didn't follow up with:
"That was May's deal with the added cherry of throwing the DUP under the bus, a deal that you personally voted against"

:smug:
Yup. The 'deal' is basically the divorce settlement plus some stuff about future cooperation and the outline of the basis for a possible trade arrangement. They prevaricated over that for three years so getting all that resolved in a year will be... you know... 'the easiest thing in human history.'

The Guardian view on Trump’s war: UK goes from poodle to lapdog?
This country will not profit from pursuing a reckless Brexit while hitching ourselves to Donald Trump’s Iranian misadventure

A British prime minister flies back from a Caribbean holiday where he has been, courtesy of millionaire friends, sunning himself on yachts while the Middle East is in flames and Britain in the grip of a security crisis. Britain’s key ally is accused of war crimes on foreign soil in a fight with Iran and its regional proxies. European opinion has quickly solidified around the idea that both sides show restraint. The British response is to defy this advice and endorse a belligerent US administration’s approach. Deja vu? It certainly should sound familiar.

The year was 2006 and the British prime minister was Tony Blair. His stubborn refusal to call for a ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon dealt, by his own account, a “fatal blow” to his premiership.
................

The fact Mr Trump did not think it necessary to inform Britain of his rash decision to assassinate Qassem Suleimani – Iran’s second most important leader after Ayatollah Khamenei – ought to tell Mr Johnson how little the White House thinks of him. Because the prime minister refused to return home early, his foreign secretary ate his own words in public. Dominic Raab was given a dressing down by his US counterpart after first siding with Europe over the almost certainly illegal killing of the thuggish Suleimani. It was disappointing to see Mr Raab replace his temperate response with self-serving US propaganda.
A "special" relationship?

Asylum seekers who crossed Channel from France over weekend could be forced back to Europe
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/h ... 39836.html

I would assume that after the end of this month, Europe will be under no obligation to take them back.

The navy are going to be pretty hard-pushed turning back asylum seekers in the channel while also sending a battle fleet to the gulf. It's all looking a bit 'Children Of Men' isn't it?

Yeah, maybe. But I wonder how the "Make Britain Great Again" morons will take to that?

The same as the American "Make America Great Again" morons. If they had a brain between them they would be dangerous.
