    In which case he's being hugely disingenuous to the country. All his supporters tell me he's an honest poplitician standing up for his principles. He's not standing up for anything at the moment.

    It's hard to disagree with the statement because there's just nothing there. What do the opposition disagree with? What would they do differently? What is their Brexit vision? Labour has abdicated its position as opposition to the government choosing instead to be a student union.

    I think of it as a responsibility for all of us not to be seduced by a party like UKIP, just because you might agree with one or two ideas. Reforming foreign aid or points based immigration shouldn't be an excuse to ignore the fact that the party is now not far off the BNP or UK first. The fact is that most of their policy ideas are wishlist ideals that won't face much scrutiny, so they don't need to worry too much about them.

    I meant our red lines. We will offer something softer. Virtually every lever of govt is extremely fearful of brexit

    I dislike the commission as much as a Brexiteer but leaving the EU in a disorderly fashion onto WTO terms will really **** us over. I don't have an answer and we are playing an incredibly weak hand but if we can't get a deal, we're in for an incredibly difficult economic adjustment.

    I agree. It's one of the reasons I voted Remain as I feared this would become a divorce deal where no-one wins. I now wonder whether the European Commission is actually as keen as hard Brexiteers to see a no deal, so that the UK suffers punishment.

    I think the issue here is the EU commission. If this was to be a deal negotiated between the UK and the heads of the member states, I suspect it would be a whole lot easier. Instead, this is now a battle because the last thing the EU commission will want is a thriving UK outside the EU. If such a scenario occurs, then there is an existential danger to the EU, with other Eurosceptic parties increasing their share of the vote within the member countries.

    There's a reason May has hardly been touring the TV studios or sending ministers out to defend the Chequers plan. She knows the plan will be negotiated with the EU and is not the final deal. Those seemingly red lines will move. Once a deal is hopefully agreed, she will be out defending the agreement along with most of her Cabinet but it will not be the Chequers plan.

    Let's have a TV shows thread.

    I actually think BoJack is Will Arnett's best work, which is weird as it's a cartoon, he's great, and it's impossible not to hear the Final Countdown without thinking of where the lighter fluid came from. But despite it being a cartoon, I think he nails it every time. I was reading something at the weekend that if they were casting Bojack today, they wouldn't have cast Alison Brie, not because she's not good, but because they'd look for a Vietnamese-American actress. Rick and Morty is great TV, but you can pick it up whenever you want, whatever mood you're in. I find with Bojack, you've really got to sit down and switch on. By the way, if you like Alison Brie, I recommend watching Glow on netflix. That's a good watch too.

    Let's have a TV shows thread.

    That's early on in the season isn't it? The whole season is heavy, but the penultimate episode takes it to a new level and just left me sitting there for a good ten minutes. I'm not going to issue any spoilers or go into detail for you, but I don't think I'll ever see an episode on a TV show like it again. It was 10/10. There's also an episode with Princess Carolyn that's incredibly well done. To be honest, I'm amazed Bojack hasn't got much traction as a show over here in the UK. Maybe it's because it's only on netflix. I only stumbled upon it by chance.

    Absolutely incredible show, especially being an animated show of such bizarreness. It allows it to explore stuff in a way that other shows can't. Some of the episodes in season 4 was something else. And the new season is out now so there's something to watch on telly again.

    Salisbury, Skripal, Poison and Russia.

    The interview was in Russian. Only an idiot would believe they actually travelled to the UK for a three day holiday, to see Salisbury cathedral. And most of that time would be spent walking the wrong way.

    I don't even think you can say it's well prepared, unless reading Wikipedia and being able to regurgitate it is considered good prep work, Wikipedia: Salisbury Cathedral, formally known as the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is an Anglican cathedral in Salisbury, England, and one of the leading examples of Early English architecture.[2] The main body of the cathedral was completed in only 38 years, from 1220 to 1258. Since 1549, the cathedral has had the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom, at 404 feet (123 m). Visitors can take the "Tower Tour" where the interior of the hollow spire, with its ancient wood scaffolding, can be viewed. The cathedral also has the largest cloister and the largest cathedral close in Britain at 80 acres (32 ha).[2] It contains a clock which is among the oldest working clocks in the world, and has the best surviving of the four original copies of Magna Carta.[2] In 2008, the cathedral celebrated the 750th anniversary of its consecration.[5] Russian interviewees: "Our friends have been recommending that we visit this wonderful city for a long time already." "There's a famous cathedral there, the Salisbury cathedral. It's famous not just all over Europe, it's famous all over the world I think. It's famous for its 123-metre spire, it's famous for its clock, the first clock made in the world that still works."

    The biggest joke will be when the likes of Galloway parrot the official line as fact.
