Johnson likes publicity.

Any attention is good attention. Whilst you are talking about how crazy his idea is, the less you come up with your own.

And there it is. The lack of plan to stop no deal. Just a bunch of idiots who argue over who is more right about politics without offering up a practical solution.

Unable to see their own flaws.

And leading us ever closer to the cliff edge and operation Yellowhammer.

The Trump playbook.
Thanks Red.

Thanks, red 💐

Remainers who won’t back Corbyn as a caretaker PM,
even as a last resort after all else has failed,
have been called

‘Meat Loaf Remainers’.
< Meatloaf hit: "I’d Do Anything For Love (But I won’t do that)" >

Meat Loaf Remainers would never let Jeremy Corbyn into Number 10.

They would do anything to stop hard Brexit, but they won’t do that.

Meatloaf remainers. It would be funny if the situation wasn't so fucking desperate.

farmers could be forced to cull up to 45,000 dairy cows.

Fake news/scaremongering.The BBC report in your link was updated the following day with this;

"No-deal Brexit cattle cull 'scare tactics' - Ulster Farmers' Union"
"The Ulster Farmers' Union (UFU) has rejected claims that 45,000 dairy cows will be culled in Northern Ireland as part of a no-deal Brexit."

"UFU president Ivor Ferguson said it was "scare tactics."

"Mr Ferguson said: "We certainly don't anticipate culling dairy cows."

"He told BBC Radio Ulster's Stephen Nolan Show that the figure of 45,000 cows appeared to have been "plucked out of the air."

""I don't agree with it and nobody in the Ulster Farmers' Union would agree with it," he said."

"A spokesperson for the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) said: "We are not planning a cull of animals; rather we are exploring ways to support industry through contingency measures and potential funding streams."

"The spokesperson added DAERA had "recruited additional resources and trained existing staff" in anticipation of significant demand for export health certificates."

Radio presenter on LBC earlier this evening pointed out that The Times headline today is misleading - the Yellowhammer report reveals that the government are not expecting an overall shortage of food.
