Not sure why the question, since that's the only logical outcome of A50 and transition. Perhaps he needs public confirmation?
Completely untrue. But nobody is allowed to point out it's a lie. Commons procedure, and all that.
BJ's answer: "Perhaps the RT Hon lady had made up her mind before she scrutinised every word of the text."
BJ shuts that line down pronto.
BJ confirms they will.
Thing is that's *not* the problem when you look into the detail. Clearly she hasn't.
BJ claims she's misread or misunderstood the agreement. (She hasn't. CL is spot on.)
BJ: We want to reach a deal blah blah ambition etc.
- This deal
- No deal
- A50 extension
Those are the 4 options.
BJ: "Blah blah. Certainly would not *want* to extend past the end of next year." Peter Bone looks gloomy. He knows that's not a commitment.
Another lie. It's in the Political Declaration. No legal standing.
BJ: Yes, ho ho, what a magnificent human I am.
No recognition that if GDP takes a gut punch from Brexit, there will be less money for anything.
Sounds like he's sharing a dream he had last night.
BJ: "What this deal does is protect NI. Physical checks would only affect 1% of the goods coming in." Everyone perks up. First hint of physical checks.
BJ: "Best thing is to vote for this deal tonight. He says he's opposed to no deal. This is the way to avoid it."
