Yawn. No Christmas special needed. The same old suspects coming out with the same old stuff. A bunch of very bitter and twisted old men whose circular arguments reinforce epic proportions of confirmation bias. As I’ve said elsewhere it’s pointless even attempting to have a debate because none of you are interested in anything other than your own views and opinions.
Brexit is going to happen and the Tories have a huge majority, not least on the back of Brexit it has to be said. How ironic that Gurnelista should come out with “People will often lie to themselves just to feel better about their choices”, but then Gurny never could see any of the irony in his own comments.
As for what’s happening at Dover, it is, indeed, a shambles. Anyone who believes this is down to covid is naive, a complete idiot or both. It would appear, however, that Macron has very probably over-played his hand as this is highly likely to backfire on him.
Germany is flying in perishables while the lorry drivers most likely to suffer are from other EU countries; and the fact they can’t now get home for Christmas is going to go down really well with their home countries. As will the European businesses hit by this every bit as much as those in the UK.
What you need to understand, though lying to yourselves means you’ll never accept it, is that people across all walks of life in the UK just want Brexit done and dusted and what’s happening now will simply harden their resolve, not weaken it.
