Brexit - Through the Looking Glass

Gather ye for more Brexit-related speculation and fulmination.

The options appear to be narrowing to:

1) Impossible

2) Not a chance

3) Nah... you've got to be kidding

Which will it be?

Or, to sum up more succicintly, which will give way first: the immoveable object or the irresistable force?

Or; we'll do it anyway, and sod the lot of you.

My money is currently on: a cosmetically-modified (but hardly different) form of the WA passed by the scared-shitless Tory party and a few Labour weirdos at some point shortly before the 31st Oct.

I like the first post.

Resistance is futile.

Cold porridge.

"the immoveable object or the irresistable force?"

Reminds me of coming off codeine - there's a point where the immovable object becomes the irresistible force.

Do you have any money left after your last brexit bet Mingloss?

mingmong - 20 Jun 2019 11:36:53 (#9 of 2618)

plenty of virtual money :)

Very zen Frankiesattva

FrankieTeardrop - 20 Jun 2019 11:39:39 (#11 of 2618)

Zen and the art of going to the toilet every ten minutes.

mingmong - 20 Jun 2019 11:44:25 (#12 of 2618)

that explains #7

FrankieTeardrop - 20 Jun 2019 11:45:13 (#13 of 2618)

Yes, that's one of the famous side effects of opiates.

Translating this in Brexit terms, it would be quite something to see Boris and TWOTP shat out of the British body politic with great velocity

But unfortunately, its probably going to be more a case of much pushing and grunting finally resulting in a small rabbit-dropping, with a large amount of unfinished business waiting in the pipeline

FrankieTeardrop - 20 Jun 2019 11:50:55 (#15 of 2618)

That's a strained metaphor.

TRaney - 20 Jun 2019 11:53:11 (#16 of 2618)

Shit, how did I end up on the Brexit thread?!

FrankieTeardrop - 20 Jun 2019 11:55:50 (#17 of 2618)

No such thing as random, TRaney.

As Jez 'Grandmaster' Corbyn makes the final moves on his 3D chessboard, will the crowd gasp and hail him? Or will he look up with that cute furrowed brow and say "Hang on... which way does the horsey move again?"

Gotout - 20 Jun 2019 12:12:40 (#19 of 2618)

Resistance is futile, Boris will assimilate you.

levelgaze - 20 Jun 2019 12:14:29 (#20 of 2618)

The Borgis.
