A small matter that The Sun and others have overlooked.

A US-UK trade deal will not get through Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday Agreement, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives has said.

Democrat Nancy Pelosi, whose party controls the House, said the UK's exit from the EU could not be allowed to endanger the Irish peace deal.

Her comments came after the US national security adviser said the UK would be "first in line" for a trade deal.

John Bolton spoke after meeting Prime Minister Boris Johnson in London.

As ever, it's just those troublesome Micks not knowing their place.
Which is exactly where the fun starts. Ingerland gets fucked up the arse by a queue 27 patiently waiting participants who have been forced to become involved.

"mwah, s'not fair", they scream. Aye, that's the way these things work.

Hammond gets a kicking. Strange really. The only people who are never ever to blame for Brexit are those who brought us Brexit and those who should apparently take all the blame are those who continuously warned against the dangers of Brexit.



THE SUN SAYS Philip Hammond hangs around like a bad smell only to sabotage another PM and kill Brexit

LIKE a particularly unpleasant smell, it appears Philip Hammond is intent on hanging around.

Yes, the human sleeping pill is back, continuing the work that so endeared him to the country during the three years he spent in the Treasury: undermining our negotiations in Brussels, attaching ludicrous conditions to the 2016 Referendum and talking the country down.

A nation yesterday sighed in unison as he mounted another assault on the possibility of Britain leaving the EU with a clean break. Plague and pestilence, imminent recession, everything short of

the apocalypse itself. He morphs ever more into a 21st century Grim Reaper with every passing day.

The former Chancellor’s failure to prepare for No Deal in the Treasury is, more than anything else, the very reason that we’re still stuck in Brexit limbo.

Brussels knew that with him holding the country’s financial levers, there was no way we’d be ready to leave with a clean break. So they pushed, and pushed, and pushed Theresa May until she was forced to accept a terrible deal and the hated backstop.

For those who think our judgment harsh, we are confident that history will be even punchier.

And now, with a Government that actually believes Britain can prosper outside the EU, he’s back to blow up another attempt at negotiations.

Brussels will be watching his Eeyore act and calculating that Parliament will be able to stop No Deal. The odious toad of a Speaker John Bercow is sure to help out, as he confirmed yesterday.

The Eurocrats will gamble they don’t need to renegotiate the deal, and British Remainers — like the former Chancellor — will push for the Second Referendum they’ve wanted from the off.

It takes some political skill to sabotage two different Governments in the space of a couple of years, but Hammond seems keen to see if he can manage it. If he’s successful this time, he risks a historic constitutional crisis and Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street. It doesn’t bear thinking about.

The sooner he moves on from public life the better.







Trading blows

WE trust the Remainers who cheered the UK’s negative growth figures last week will be equally thrilled that Germany appears headed to recession. No? Hmm.

The news comes as Irish consumer confidence has fallen to the lowest level in years. We take no glee in any of this.

We do, though, point out that there is far more going on in the global economy than Brexit. With trade slowing, economies across the world are being hit.

The answer isn’t wild over-reactions to the latest data.

It’s getting the engines of free trade and the free market firing again.

Did anybody actually do that though? I think with two of Europe's largest economies on the wobble, to plough ahead with this no-deal lunacy is no time for cheers - it just makes me want to stock up on baked beans and dried pasta.

That's about as accurate as their Hillsborough reporting.

Under the hilariously titled "House of Chaos".
THE very idea of Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street sends a shiver down the spine.
"Jerry! Fetch me the smelling salts!"
Mercifully, it seems most of those he approached to form a “Government of National Unity” are as horrified by the idea as the rest of the country.
Wrong. The idea is supported. The sticking point is who will lead it.
Anybody with two brain cells to rub together knows that a “time-limited” Government with him in charge would be the start of a Marxist experiment that this country simply cannot afford.
Anyone with two brain cells to rub together knows that:

A) The sole purpose is to extend Article 50 to give time for a General Election and possibly a referendum afterwards. He has not stated he will attempt to push through Labour policy unless he wins a General Election.

B) Should he go rogue, he will immediately lose the confidence of the House and will be forced to stand down.

There's no "Marxism" involved at all.
Magic Grandpa, his sinister pal John McDonnell and their barmy army of anti-Semites and half-wit economists would be off to the races. And the country would be off to the dogs.
Yawn. It's really getting boring now.
The Lib Dems rightly rubbished the plan but then managed to outdo even Labour’s collective idiocy by proposing Ken Clarke or Harriet Harman as leaders to unite the country. Or at least the 48 per cent of it they care about.
The other 52 per cent can vote too. They can vote for what and who they like. Nobody is stopping them. The Government the majority want will get in.

Oh yes, I forgot. Rupe elects the Government.
One is busy playing Westminster Dream Team. The other is getting the country ready for Brexit.
We're about as "ready for Brexit" as I am ready for work the second I step out of the shower. Like that, we will not be ready and it won't be a pretty sight.

The Sun tells us to shut up and stop moaning and just eat the chlorinated chicken:



Clucking mad

THE faux-outrage about chlorinated chicken is laughable.

It’s safe. And if you’ve got a beef with the idea of chlorine on your chicken, you might want to throw out your salad and stop drinking tap water — because it’s there too.

Alarmists claim the procedure hides hygiene flaws earlier in the treatment process and that Britain’s current system is apparently perfect.

Nobody mentions that more than half of the chickens sold here have traces of the very bacteria that a chlorine treatment is designed to eliminate.

The political posturing over food safety is just people squawking nonsense.





A-level the field

CONGRATULATIONS to those who got the A-level results they wanted.

But only half the country’s 18-year-olds take them. Just as important for the other half are BTECs, the results of which get very little fanfare.

New Education Secretary Gavin Williamson must make vocational studies a priority.

The route to success doesn’t have to go via university.





Sweet nothings

THERESA May’s legacy: 220 different measures to cut salt and sugar.

The octopus-like reach of the Nanny State stretches ever further. Boiled sweets are next in the crosshairs.

It leaves a bitter taste indeed.

Have the fuckwits at the Scum looked at the relative incidence of food poisoning between the UK and the USA, and survival of same?

But then the elites at the Sun won't ever be eating in the places that'll be the target for this shit.
