Mr Johnson's apparent hardening of his stance on guaranteeing Brexit "with or without a deal" came as former civil service chief Bob Kerslake called the October 31 pledge "a complete hostage to fortune".
In comments reported by The Independent, the former Whitehall mandarin warned Parliament will not countenance leaving the EU without a deal.
"It is always a good maxim in politics not to enter a room unless you know that you can get out of it," the peer told the Chamberlain lecture in London on Tuesday.
"Boris Johnson has not only entered the room but he has put on the straitjacket, padlocked the door and started the tap running."

Brexit civil servant in charge of no-deal planning quits

"The top government official in charge of no-deal Brexit planning has quit just as the chances of crashing out of the EU appear to have increased.
Tom Shinner, 33, director of policy and delivery coordination at the Department for Exiting the EU, was in charge of coordinating the domestic policy implications of Brexit across government departments to ensure a smooth exit from the EU....   "

A 33 year old in charge?

Not a f**king surprise with the Civil Service. Ineptitude is their specialty.

What has his age got to do with his role - you have to be a particular age to get a certain job is that it - what a ridiculous statement. 

Mark Zuckerberg is 35 and leads one of the biggest companies in the world.

The demographics of people who voted for brexit are the people over 50 - suppose we shouldn't let over 50's vote - then he wouldnt even have had the job
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience

Mark Zuckerberg is 35 and leads one of the biggest companies in the world.

... and what do you think Mark Zuckerberg knows about just in time shipping?

or about sourcing and supply of medical drugs?

or about international policing treaties?

or border controls?


There is likely no way anyone under 50 - and its gonna be 1 in a million of over 50 year olds - has the breadth of knowledge to take on that role.
There is absolutely utterly no way anyone under 40 has the breadth of knowledge for the role.

To be clear - its not the age that I have an issue with - it is that such an age clearly means they cannot be suitable qualified and experienced for the job.


But it is not surprising that the stupid service appoints someone who is clearly not suitable for the job - as they probably only have a pool of equally inept clowns to pick from - and their selection systems for roles are shocking.


This post was written by an under 40 year old who has been lucky enough to have covered a shitload of disciplines in his field.

I've no time for grand standers like Brand. If western democracy is so insufferable let him go elsewhere to see how he fares out.

So because other places might be in worse shape, that means that people shouldn't speak up about the corruption and injustices in their own country??

Perhaps the best political blog on the web. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Borisí bridge. Sure itís never be open due to weather.

Telling unionists what they want to hear. Are they really that stupid to believe it?

Finance is not the issue. Sure what's 15bn going to take from the NHS? ;D
