    She is a cathedral of dust motes and ancient cobwebs held together only by the fear of total edifice collapse.

    I accidentally put my finger in her the other day while throwing her away and she was all squishy and gross.

    Seriously though, how much longer can this go on for? 'Omnishambles' doesn't begin to describe it. Isn't there some ancient procedural mechanism for calling for a vote of no confidence in HMG?

    So many appallingly offensive and idiotic takes on irish politics and history from Brexiteers at the moment I actually cant take it.

    And its just going to get worse when the Tories tank the negotiations and sacrifice any hope of sane divorce on behalf of the DUP in December.

    Merkel struggling to form a functual government (or even new general elections) in Germany aren't helpful developments in the whole Brexit mess either.

    I was seriously worried that the EU would sell us down the river now they've gotten their cash, but Tusk just made a very strong statement in support of our veto of phase 1.

    The unionists have been losing their shit all week, so now we're in a situation where the Tories have to choose between a deal on Brexit and DUP pullout and collapse of government (and the DUP will do that, even if its political suicide) or no deal and retaining power. The third option is some incredibly clever written commitment on the border that's acceptable to Dublin, and bear in mind that the last time we accepted Britain's word on the border was with the boundary commission in 1920 - and we're STILL waiting on it's final report.

    Should be an interesting week.

    Big news. The border will now effectively be in the Irish sea.

    The DUP are going to shit the bed, but presumably this will gain enough support from everyone else to push it through, after that though, all it will take is one no confidence motion for a collapse of the government.

    Assuming of course that the brits aren't just lying through their teeth.

    I really cant stress the importance and the huge irony of the most anti-republican Tory lite Irish political party delivering a hammer blow to the Tories potentially breaking up the union (if Scotland follow tack, which they will) and bringing Irish unification closer than it's ever been since 1922.

    A ruinous civil war, another 35+ years of conflict, death squads, terror bombings, thousands dead and countless more lives destroyed... all wiped away because of a spat between a couple of Bullingdon boys.

    With labour running 7 points ahead of the tories this is an amazing risk for May to be taking. If I didn't know better Id say this is a desperate move by someone who doesn't have a clue what she's doing.

    Is that a rollback I can hear in the distance?

    DUP scupper the deal. Europeans apoplectic at May's bizarre behaviour. Chances of progress now bleak but customs union for entire UK now back on the table. Expect ructions in Westminster this week.

    Half expecting May or Davis to go now. Something has to give.

    It's getting ridiculous. Someone during the leadership election described it as being like Game of Thrones if all the characters were total fuckwits, and they seem to be carrying on in much the same vein. It's like they're involved in a slow-motion car-crash with reality, and it'd be hilarious to watch if it wasn't for the actual consequences.

    Also, Rees Mogg's enthusiasm for No Deal is about the most Tory thing ever - you take a thing which might almost sound like a solution to a problem if you ignored any of the reality of the situation, and cling to it as a sort of sacred doctrine regardless of how obvious it becomes that it's a completely awful idea.

    Anyone emigrating for the sake of themselves/their children/grandchildren?
