Nobody wants this Brexit - it's time to grow up, and ditch it. Daily Mirror on 🔥🔥🔥

"If you have to blackmail someone into doing it, the chances are it's not a good idea." #Brexit #BrexitShambles

"If you have to blackmail the Prime Minister, Cabinet and Parliament; threaten your friends; ignore the predictions of businessmen, scientists and experts; commit the grossest breach of campaign finance law in history...."
#Brexit
"...steal people's data' rely on Russian bots, fake news algorithms and racists; paint lies on a bus and keep Chris Grayling in a job because he was one of the people who thought this was all a great idea..."
#Brexit #BrexitLies
"... then it's almost certainly a festering dungheap of a plan and it should be ditched before the cack hits the spreading device."

"But in the brief space where Laura Kuenssberg fills her lungs before launching into the commentary for our anaesthetic-free national amputation we have a last, brief opportunity to pause."

"On June 23, 2016, 26.5% of the UK voted to jump in a legislative blender. Dragging with them children, prisoners, the mentally-ill, can't-be-bothereds and the 25% who expressed a strong view for staying out of the blender, they demanded to leave the European Union." #Brexit
"At that point it was possible. Perhaps unwise, but doable if we had some intellectual titans in charge who could unpick 40 years of law, undertake the biggest trade deal programme ever needed & unite a country divided along lines cultural, political, intellectual & financial"
"Instead we got Margot Leadbetter, who thought this was a great way to keep those frightful immigrants out...."
#Brexit #BrexitCrisis
"Her plan was to concentrate on scraping mould off the jamin the hope we could still eat it for tea, while giving the task of complex negotiations to three of the thickest people in blue rosettes she could find."
#Brexit #Brexitchaos
The Free Trade Agreement that we will do with the EU should be one of the easiest in human history," said The Disgraced Liam Fox.

"There will be no downside to Brexit, only a considerable upside," wittered David Davis."
#Brexit #BrexitChaos
"There is no plan for a no deal, because we're going to get a great deal," burbled Boris Johnson."
#Brexit #BrexitLies
"Two of these titans fell over each other to crash the pound and resign first, having wasted two years of nationally-critical time in farting about, arguing, telling Margot she was doing it wrong and achieving absolutely naff all."
#Brexit #BrexitShambles
"The third has managed six trade deals that are exactly the same as our current deal, so long as we are prepared to trade all our cars, financial services, food, fissile material and chemicals with Israel, Palestine, Switzerland, South Africa, the Faroe Islands & Chile"
#Brexit
"Liam Fox realised slightly later than the rest of us he couldn't do any deals, and the other two spent their time doing the political equivalent of wiping their bums on the windows."
#Brexit #BrexitShambles
"It says much that one of them was replaced by a man who did not know what Dover was for, and the other by someone who was the most useful idiot David Cameron knew"
#Brexit #BrexitShambles
"We're now facing a vote on a really bad deal which Margot will probably lose, a vote on no deal which Parliament will never support & a situation where the country STILL can't decide what it wants & Margot has to ask the EU if it will let us faff about like morons a bit longer"
"If it refuses, we crash out without any agreement on what happens next. That will delight those in a position to short the pound, move their investment funds to Dublin or destroy the NHS with a cripplingly-massive increase in costs & seriously annoy 73.5% of the country"
"The hard fact of the matter is that nobody voted for no deal. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying."
#Brexit #BrexitLies
"The Leave campaign didn't just specifically state that if it won, there would be a plan in place before we left

It explicitly said there'd be a cross-party negotiation with the EU. It said it would include experts from business, law, and civil society"
mirror.co.uk/news/politics/…
"The Leave Camp described a four-year legal framework [to] pass laws ending the right of EU citizens to come here, cut 5% off VAT on energy bills, guarantee £100m a week extra for the NHS, a free trade bill & the end of jurisdiction for the European Court of Justice"
#BrexitLies
"Not a single one of those promises has been enacted. Despite the fact that the greasy arsewipes who promised it have been in government THIS ENTIRE TIME."
#Brexit #BrexitCrisis
"It's also worth pointing out that, had any of the above actually happened, there'd probably be majority support in both Parliament and the country. But then, we'd all applaud a jam-smeared, diamond-hooved unicorn if it pranced down the street."
#Brexit
Boris promised a deal. Gove promised a deal. The Leave literature, press conferences, posters & social media feeds all promised a deal"

"In such a situation, a grown-up nation stops. It agrees that a race entered 3 years ago has attracted no other competitors, cost jobs in the automotive industry, and led to a series of self-inflicted wounds while simultaneously screwing the NHS."
#Brexit #Brexitchaos
"Only someone with the mind of an infant says that, because it is what they want, it's what everyone must have despite the obvious consequences of increased poverty, more expensive medicines, higher taxes and fewer public services."
#Brexit #BrexitShambles
"You cannot respect a decision arrived at through disreputable means, dishonoured in its execution, and which dismays all those who look upon the absolute state of it. That's the sort of decision you disrespect, hard.

Euthanase #Brexit. Now."
