    Can you copy and paste that? Its asking to sign in.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    That's behind a paywall, I think, but presumably is about the government's inability to produce anyone willing to swear that Johnson's intentions were good, true etc.

    Yes thatís pretty much it.
    This keeps happening to me with the FT links. I open it, read the story, post the link and it doesnít then work for others and I canít get back into it either.

    Don't know how likely it is, but Bozo desperately needs that ruling to go his way. Everything is going against him, which is pleasing.
    Even his gullible base will give up on him if he's been misling the queen shirley?

    Signs of the beginning of a climbdown by Boris Johnson on the 21 Tory rebels? The chief whip Mark Spencer has written to some of the rebels outlining the appeals procedure, adding pontedly that future support for the government will be taken into account. Not going down well

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Unionists have gone Full Froth claiming that the:
    "ruling doesnt count because its Scottish courts",
    "we wont be told what to do by Scotland",
    "ignore these illegal courts."
    And every statement further confirms the case for independence.
    Magnificent.

    Tiny point: Scotland was guaranteed a separate, independent judiciary and legal system in 1707. One would hope UK officials, especially ones who claim to support the union, would understand and respect that.

    Scotland is only part of the "union" when it suits them.

    Scottish court system should sue the UK Government for defamation after claiming that their ruling was influenced by political bias.

    If Johnny English had been able to understand these simplest of nuances the Union would never have been under threat.

    In my life, it has been the repeated failure of England to recognise us as partners with rights, rather than as a northern offshoot of their country, that has irked the most.

    It's partly the demographics and partly that the "unaligned" switch sides in the event of a hard or no deal Brexit from favouring the UK to favouring a UI.

    Ideally now the English Tory press will run a "Jocko judges stole our Brexit" front page and Indy gets another step closer.
    That was just about my first thought when I heard the decision. Get rid of those uppity Jocks Boris!!

    Kwasi Kwarteng embarrassing himself on Andrew Neil. Is he really the best stooge the government can put up?

  20. #1459
    I love the increasingly contradictory positions some people are being forced to take. The same people desperate to get out of the EU so we can 'take back control of our laws' are now declaring the British legal system as 'unfit for purpose' because a Scots Court has made a decision they disagree with.

    Government says it will defy Commons vote to release communications concerning prorogation. Another mess.

    Surely if they had nothing to hide and if this was all above board like they claim it is, they'd be more than willing to release them.

    We're into Watergate territory now. How long till Boris cones on and tells us he's not a crook?

    His some-people-but-not-me comments about the judiciary were an absolute disgrace.

    So that's the yellowhammer document published, a summary-

    The U.K will be more badly affected than the EU.
    Delays for vehicles and people at borders.
    Electricity price increases.
    Medical supply shortages.
    Potential increase of zoonotic diseases which can affect food supply chain, animal welfare and human health.
    Food price increases and reduced choice of fresh food.
    Potential for clean drinking water to be affected.
    No more free healthcare in EU countries.
    Gibraltar completely ****ed.
    Protests, public disorder and community tensions that'll take up a significant amount of police time.
    Job losses.
    Fuel shortages and price increases.
    Northern Ireland ****ed.
    Increase in black market economy.
    Unable to patrol fishing waters so EU vessels can fish illegally in our waters, causing further tensions.
    Social care providers going bust due to lack of EU workers.
    "Low income groups will be disproportionately affected..."

    And our government are happy for this to happen to us, tories eh.

    It's likely to be overturned next week though isnt it?
    Yup. The Supreme Court may dispense with the Gina Miller appeal at the same time.
