So bloody true. But the Blond Scrotum knows no one will talk to him.
The EU have stated quite clearly that they will listen to his new ideas.
He has nothing except to offer May's deal with the word "backstop" crossed out and "Boris' bonzer new cunning plan, details to follow after we leave" in its place.

The only way the EU accepts a treaty without the backstop is if Northern Ireland leaves the UK and joins Ireland 🤪

Doubt it Jim. The people in the North are far more pragmatic. They dont want to lose the peace the GFA has given them and they voted by a large majority to stay in the EU. The DUP is a very vocal minority and only have any real support in one county which does not touch the border strangely enough. Some of the greatest movements for unifying various local schemes along the border have come from the North. The also know remaining in the UK outside the EU they will be treated as second class citizens by London.

I think you would be pleasantly surprised Svarty. Dont believe the UK press.

Sam Gyimah rejects ‘populist Johnson’ as he joins Lib Dems

Boris 'The Bodger' Johnson has suffered a fresh blow as the former Tory universities minister Sam Gyimah dramatically defected to the Liberal Democrats, accusing the prime minister of “veering towards populism and English nationalism”.

In a major coup for the Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson at the start of her party’s annual conference, Gyimah said he had left the Conservatives to fight against the government’s “scorched earth approach” to delivering Brexit regardless of the cost to the country.

Announcing his defection exclusively to the Observer as his new party gathered in Bournemouth, Gyimah said centrists were being “cast out of both main parties”. The East Surrey MP called on them to unite and fight back against the drift to the extremes.

“I listen to ministers undermining the courts,” he said. “Ministers questioning experts because their views are inconvenient for what the government is saying about no deal. You have a government that says law enforcement is the centrepiece of its platform, and yet says in another breath that it will pick and choose what laws it chooses to respect.

“This is in many ways undermining key pillars of our constitution and the functioning of our democracy. The issue for me is not just Brexit. It is beyond Brexit – how you conduct politics and the veering towards populism and English nationalism.”...
