I read the MP for Dover is an ERG Brexiteer, as are a couple of other MPís in Kent.

Bizarre really, the town and the county most likely to be affected by no-deal. Dunkirk-spirit will see them through I guess.

Anglesey (Holyhead port) also voted leave.

So Rees Mogg's sister has now entered the fray . . . I don't think parody or satire could be as absurd as real political life at the minute!!

Irish Ambassador has written a rebuke to said Spectator.
And as far as I'm aware Britain's loan has been paid back with Interest.
Now as regards reparations for 800 years of oppression, torture, murder, land stealing, genocide, cultural and religious genocide.......etc etc

As far as I am aware the UK loan has not been paid back as it had a penalty clause for early repayment.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

"Little Leo"??

Really? Forget about the fact that he's 6foot 4 or whatever, theres still that notion in the English mind that Ireland is an inferior country to their glorious Britannia.
The EU treats Ireland and the UK as equal members and equal partners, and the British just can't understand this.

That's it in a nutshell.  While the English have bemoaned the death of the empire and watched their stately homes crumble around them, the rest of the world has moved on.  This has been masked slightly by some North Sea oil and a boom in financial services in London... but the underlying trend is there.  Britain, after centuries of punching way above it's proverbial weight, is now fcuked.
