I make that around 114-1 in favour of the EU, based on the last 4.5 years.
Agreed, but the optics on this one are terrible.
The shitrags will always have a pop even if the reversal had occurred earlier in the day. I don't think there is too much to worry about in the long term, especially when compared to the Johnson government.oboogie wrote: ↑Fri Jan 29, 2021 11:54 pmYes, but it still happened and the reverse ferret was too late for the papers (I've just watched the review - even the pro-EU papers are having a go about this).
I fear this story is going to hang around for a long time.
I wonder how big Johnson's bouquet to Ursula von der Leyen will be?
As Flashman puts it in his Papers, you don't have to be lucky all the time, just at the end. Johnson is getting lucky because the one thing that will end this shitshow is currently out of his control. The NHS is getting on with it despite all the prevarication, dithering and policy-changing. Ministers can't hand contracts to their mates and waste fortunes on things that are unfit for purpose. The much-maligned pubic sector is riding to his aid, and at the end of it the same useful idiots who voted for blue passports will be able to say that they survived so everything turned out fine and Boris led us bravely to victory.
To be fair, UVL and the Commission made the u-turn (presumably after getting a right bollocking from Michael Martin) realising that the optics looked bad, not to mention that its become clear that AstraZenaca has been overpromising and underdelivering what they could supply in time to customers. After days of politiking both in Brussels and in London, cooler heads look like they are starting to prevail.
