    I'm waiting for the TV reports of fishermen being confused by the the fact they can no longer go down to the Bay of Biscay.

    Watching Election '97 on the BBC Parliament channel. It's worth it just to see the likes of Hamilton, Mellor, and Portillo get humiliated.

    They also have Frank Skinner.

    Opinium tonight has the tories with a bare 5% lead. What should be more worrying is if the numbers are correct the SNP are tracking towards 60+%, and Scottish Parliament elections are in less than a year - 31 MSPs on the chopping block and IndyRef 2.

    Cummings would see that as a fair trade for his hide. The 1922, not so much.

    Well, there will be a minor event that will probably also slightly affect the voters before that vote, some thing called the best brexit ever.

    There's only one thing that would make this government allow Indyref 2, and that's them needing to get rid of 60+ opposition Westminster MPs in order to remain in power. And even then, you need to offset that against them using the SNP as a bogeyman to scare potential Labour voters in England.

    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    No mention of Diana or temperatures in high numbers, but other than that, solid daily expressing.

    Of course they are.

    Covid19 hands them a perfect shield, all the economic fallout from hard brexit can be rolled into covid19 fallout. The cynic in me might suggest that the reason we're opening up now, despite being laughably unready to do so, is to make sure that second wave is good and peaked in late August so we can lock down for another 3 months and push the economic fall out into 2021. That's the cynic in me, mind.

    30th June is under the Withdrawal Agreement the last date that either side can ask for an extension to the transition period. However, the UK now has a law that makes it illegal for us to ask for one or to grant one if the EU asks for it.
