Dear Mr Johnson, what was needed to protect the integrity of the UK was for you to make sure you had a good withdrawal agreement that served that purpose before you agreed to it. M. Barnier spent a lot of time explaining to the UK negotiators what the issues were with NI.
Theresa May spent a lot of time trying to solve that, and to square the circle, so as to preserve a no border system. We said at the time, only you didn't listen, that your withdrawal agreement was rushed and unwise, and had an impossible internal border.
You could have seen this coming. Indeed unless you are utterly stupid, you did see this coming and you let it happen because you are unfit to be a statesman and you promise things you never intend to keep.
Which is worse? Signing an agreement intending to go back on your word or signing an agreement whose disastrous implications you haven't bothered to notice even though the partners to the agreement themselves tried to explain them? It's worse for a statesman to
Glad to see this poll is beginning to get its morality sorted out after a rocky start!

Truly embarrassing misbehaviour in the European Parliament today from the thugs in the Brexit plc seats. A disgrace to our once respected country.
And now they are all totally absent for the award of the Sakharov Prize to human rights defender Ilham Tohti. How low can a human being sink?
The left of the house is full. The right is more than half empty. The Brexit plc seats are completely empty.

Dear UK voters, I understand that 48% of you voted to say that you think that the job I have been doing on your behalf, since last May, is a complete waste of money...
the job I have been doing to improve the lives of animals across Europe, to defend human rights in other countries, to promote good practice in farming, fisheries, and energy, to support research opportunities and to improve transport across Europe—including this country...
You, the 48%, think that this job I have been doing is a complete waste of money. You think that it is enough to look after our own people and animals, and play no part in helping others to do the same.
