James O'Brien sums the situation up pretty well:

He's an arrogant sod, no doubt, but part of my daily entertainment now is listening to him exposing the stupidity of Little Englander Brexiteers and more often than not laying bare the fact that mostly they just want to keep foreigners out.

And I enjoyed his pigsticking of Farrage:

I quite enjoy the arrogance he shows to these t**ts who ring up the show but are completely totally misinformed. He puts them on the spot time and time again and they have no real answer for him.

He completely eviscerated Johnson this morning and with mention of a "Love child running around west London" I'm sure he has peaked the Foreign Secretary's interest!!

Barnier today said the backstop would apply just to the wee six and that Britain would not be included.

Difficult to find transparency but there does seem to be an agenda of a de facto economically unified island outside of a hard exited UK being pushed by the EU, without a push back from downing street.

Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity

Interesting analysis of the BBC poll here
https://bangordub.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/on-a-knife-edge-brexit-lucid-talk-and-the-border-poll

among other things, it notes that interest in the UK is actually less among ethnic minorities than among Catholics, all the Poles etc now favour a United Ireland. Consequently, the vote might depend on who is allowed vote, e.g. everyone resident in NI, everyone born in NI etc.

Interesting times ahead.
