There are plenty of people in ILX that I can work with, that I do work with. But xyzzzz is a Brexiteer. He cannot be trusted on Brexit. That is abundantly clear.

and if it means that 50,000 more disabled people must die under austerity so that we can have that monument, so be it

The UK is a notoriously impoverished country whose ruling class simply can't afford to invest more in handouts charity than it already has. I mean, the fact that you have so many caritative organisations per capita (quite unlike socialist France) is proof positive that Brits are the most generous humans in existence.

He reminded his audience of ministers and party staff of his campaign mantra: “Deliver Brexit, unite the country and defeat Jeremy Corbyn.”

Pointing out that this spelled “dud”, he joked that the final e – “energise” – had been left out. “I say to all the doubters: dude, we are going to energise the country!’”

http://eroticreviewmagazine.com/articles/horny-tony/

“On that night of the 12th May, 1994, I needed that love Cherie gave me, selfishly,” he wrote. “I devoured it to give me strength. I was an animal following my instinct, knowing I would need every ounce of emotional power to cope with what lay ahead. I was exhilarated, afraid and determined in roughly equal quantities.”

The first thought is, of course, disgust. Blair devouring, Blair as an animal. Then there is hilarity. Then, rather suddenly, the mind recoils in horror. It’s the imagery, you see. No matter, how developed the intellect, it’s simply impossible to get past the imagery.

Boris Johnson appears to be on the brink of reaching a Brexit deal after making major concessions to EU demands over the Irish border.

A draft treaty could now be published on Wednesday morning, according to senior British and EU sources.

It is understood that the negotiating teams have agreed in principle that there will be a customs border down the Irish Sea. The arrangement was rejected by Theresa May as a deal that no British prime minister could accept.

Johnson will still have to win over parliament – including the Democratic Unionist party and the hardline Tory Brexiters, the European Research Group – on the basis that Northern Ireland will still legally be within the UK’s customs territory.
