And their other mate Farage is now  ‘actively being investigated by the FBI’

Can you tell the future? Yesterday I hadn't seen a word about his status being upgraded now it's all over.
Chicago -> Milwaukee -> Galway

You sure about that?? Can’t find any sources for it.

He was a person of interest with regard to Trump and Russia collusion but never investigated as far as I can see.

All seems to be coming from this https://twitter.com/jdpoc/status/1058007548203331585?s=21

Hasn’t been officially confirmed so a bit of caution required.

The propagation and membership of the internal/single market was considered by former Tory chancellor Kenneth Clarke to be Margaret Thatcher’s greatest achievement.
  The idea of trying to set up new trade agreements in a world that is going protectionist fast is for the birds
  But, thanks to the trade agreements the EU has with a fair proportion of the rest of the world, as the Office for Budget Responsibility reminds us in its Discussion Paper No 3, “when added to the 49% share of UK trade accounted for by members of the EU, altogether [existing] trade agreements reduce or eliminate tariffs for around 66% of UK trade.”
The idea of crashing out of the EU and trying to set up new trade agreements from scratch in a world that is going protectionist fast is, or ought to be, for the birds.

End game really approaching now. Ireland / EU really needs to stand firm and call UK's bluff. No hope in hell a No-Deal will get passed in parliament so it's either a GE or another referendum (cf. Channel 4 last night). Chickens coming home to roost now for Brexiteers.

There really is no doubt about the DUP. Their hatred of everything Irish exceeds their interest in the economic wellbeing of their constituents. For f**k's sake

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/11/06/brexit-latest-theresa-may-set-pressure-cabinet-accepting-new/
"Theresa May's efforts to find an acceptable Irish backstop with her cabinet today risk being overshadowed by her Democratic Unionist Party allies warning that the United Kingdom is "heading for no deal".
The provocative assessment was made the DUP's chief whip, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, as he pointed out on Twitter that it would mean the UK "won't have to pay a penny more to [the] EU". Such a scenario, he added, would have "serious consequences" for the Republic of Ireland's economy and force it to suffer a "big increase" in payments to EU coffers.

Only 30% of Brits support a no deal.
I suspect the DUP will get tangoed.

IMHO I don't think either a GE or another referendum will solve the issue. People are divided nearly 50/50 on Brexit and the two main parties are also split. What it needed from the start was a cross party delegation to negotiate.

Jeffrey isn't wrong in what a no deal would do to the Irish economy but he forgot to mention the huge damage it will do to the already fragile Northern economy.

Wait till all those big Protestant Farmers are washing their milk down the drain and no money coming from Westminster.

We're all couped if that happens.
