Boris Johnson and his cohorts would remind of Prince George in Blackadder III the old ‘We can do this, we’re British. A shower of in bred lunatics
Careful now

Interesting that the journos were from across the spectrum, including the Government's normal mouthpiece the Torygraph.

Apparently there is a lot of tension in the Cabinet between 2 factions - one wants to address the inequality that spurred the Leave vote and protect jobs while aligned to the EU. The other wants to destroy what doesnt belong in the future and do a WTO f**k you to the EU. This sort of shite wouldnt work on a Junior C hurling team.

Latest poll has support for Scottish independence surging at 52%. The Tories will have a battle on their hands to try and fend off the SNPs calls for Indy Ref 2.

The Tories can just keep saying no can they not? What can the SNP do about it?

They can keep saying no but they run the risk of driving an even greater wedge between middle England and Scotland thus increasing support for independence in the process. If the Scots do not see any tangible benefits accruing from Brexit then it will just become greater. Denying people a vote will not improve relations as the Spanish have discovered in Catalonia.

As it's already been accepted by Westminster that the Scottish people are sovereign over Scotland I suspect there will be a case taken under Scots Law to order a referendum.

I think the longer the tories delay on granting a referendum, support will grow even more for independence .

If they want Scotland to stay, they should grant it now while it’s too close to call and the effects of Brexit hasn’t manifested yet.

Looks like the morning of the Long Knives in Downing St. BJ moving out some of the more hardline Brexiteers and possibly moving towards a more One-Nation cabinet outlook. The utterly useless Villiers and Leadsom both gone, as is apparently bombastic Geoffrey Cox. Also alas Julian Smith NI SOS, who seemed a man of empathy and ability and who achieved more in half the time than his numskulled predecessor Karen Bradley.

That Smith lad seemed an able operator.
Mind you compared to his 3 or 4 predecessors.....
