Raab: Vote Leave Critics Just Trying to Block Brexit

Raab obviously right that the allegations against Vote Leave obviously did not change the referendum result, and that the Remain campaign did far worse…

Raab: We Will Be Ready For WTO Brexit

If Raab can achieve one thing at Dexeu, let’s hope it’s convincing Number 10 to properly prepare for a WTO Brexit…

May Insists Pairing Scandal “An Honest Mistake”

Not sure fibbing that you didn’t tell MPs to break their pairs, and then admitting you did when caught red-handed, can be described as either “honest” or a “mistake”. Ministers and Tory MPs requiring pairs in future will have grave fears about how things are going to play out under the current chief whip…

UPDATE: Tom Watson:

“It is unbelievable that the Prime Minister has repeated the desperate and blatantly untrue excuses made by her Party Chair and Chief Whip. This is a serious issue that goes beyond efficient administration in the House of Commons. This is about public trust in politics. At such a crucial time for our country, people expect candour and decency, not cowardice and dishonesty.”

Suella Denies Telling Sky She’d Resigned

JoCo: “Did you, Suella, talk to the Sky reporter Lewis Goodall and say that you would be resigning in the morning after David Davis had handed in his resignation?”

Suella: “No.”

JoCo: “You didn’t?”

Suella: “Not at all. I’d love to see some proof of that conversation. That never happened.”

It was Russia Today fake news merchant Afshin Rattansi that first claimed Suella had quit:

More fool any Lobby hack who copies RT…

UK Government Spaceport Sited in Worst Place

The government is getting excited, the UK is set for new space age! Launching rockets into space from Scotland, supported by the taxpayers with spaceflight grants worth over £30 million as part of the UK’s Industrial Strategy. Sutherland at latitude: 58° 10′ 18.00″ N will be the northernmost operational spaceport in the world. The reason spaceports are usually and preferably sited near the Equator is because that is where the Earth’s rotational speed is the highest. Rockets launched from sites near the Equator get an additional natural boost that helps save the cost of putting in extra fuel and boosters. So putting a spaceport in the North of a northern hemisphere country is just plain dumb.

This is why government industrial strategies are a bad idea. Politicians pick projects for political reasons, “local jobs” – a for-profit enterprise would never consider a launch site at this a northern latitude. There are plenty of British territories nearer the Equator. Even Cornwall would be a better launch site…

UPDATE: Scottish Rockets: Correction

May Makes Clear We’re Unlikely to Ever Diverge

This is the key section of May’s Marr interview. She makes clear what Brexiters know to be true: under her Chequers deal, if we ever diverge on something in the common rulebook, it means a border goes up in Ireland and the UK faces consequences she cannot accept. Which means we are realistically never going to diverge in anything. Marr is right: this is fake sovereignty and not Brexit.

Trump Says Boris Would Be Great PM
