Brexit update

There have been more votes.
There have been more attempts to renegotiate.
There have been many factions.

I'm not even going to try to explain it. What I'm seeing is a bunch of headless chickens who don't know where they've been or where they're going.

Plus, we have an MP in jail, but who isn't going to resign because she wants to keep on getting that nice £77,000/year.

What we are seeing here is a synchronised display of incompetence, and of the British Public loses faith in parliament, it won't be because of any future referendum, it will be because we never realised that they were such plonkers.

And I've found out that if we leave the EU, then I can't use the VAT Moss scheme for paying vst to the EU-27 as I have before. I have to join a different scheme, and to do that I have to sign up with some other country (Ireland is my choice, because they'll speak English there)
to pay my VAT obligations to the 27 remaining EU countries.

Except that I can't do that until after March 29.
And my VAT quarter ends on March 31.

These idiots have absolutely no idea what chaos they're causing.

  1. As the much missed Douglas Adams might have put it:

    “There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what Brexit is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

    There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

  3. "These idiots have absolutely no idea what chaos they're causing."

    A depressingly accurate observation. You're just the sort of person Channel 4 News & Newsnight should be interviewing.

    Alas those who both peddle & crow about fake news & project fear got there first and have utterly destroyed what little quality broadcast news & journalism we had left in this country (after 22+ years of spin doctoring).
