Meanwhile Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab had his own struggles to contend with, as he made the mixed up the Irish and Red Seas:

‘We’ve made clear and I made clear in the House again earlier that we would do nothing that would draw a customs border down the Red Sea.’

Is there such a thing as a Moses Complex?

Dominic Raab is an anagram of Midair Bacon (aka flying pig).

Shamelessly nicked from a Guardian BTL comment.
Today's flying pig is tomorrow's floundering gammon.

Q: In the Sunday Telegraph you said the UK would only pay its exit bill if the EU offered a trade deal. But at the moment the draft withdrawal agreement does not include a conditionality clause, does it?

Raab accepts that is not in the withdrawal agreement now. It needs to be added, he says.

He says this can be done in different ways.

One option would be to insert a clause in the withdrawal agreement.

But there must be clear obligation on the EU to move expeditiously and get the trade deal agree.

Q: But the December agreement said the financial settlement was without prejudice, and hence not dependent on a final trade deal.

Raab says the government has also always made it clear that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.
So we've always made it clear except for that time we did an agreement saying the opposite.

Watching Raab giving a press conference on "preparations" for the no deal Brexit.

Lordy, but he is fucking creepy. He keeps wiping his top lip with a handkerchief, or just rubbing it with his fingers.

He sends a shudder down the spine.

The body language was telling. Very uncomfortable.
It was also very noticeable that he is unhappy reading out a speech - many errors, including reading through the punctuation. Presumably getting him to speak from bullet points was unrealistic. An amateurish performance.
He read Law (rather than PPE) at Lady Margaret Hall, but has never practic(s)ed - in either sense of the word, it seems.
