I was finally able to sign the petition to parliament to revoke article 50 (exit from Brexit) after 4 days. The site kept crashing. Over 5 million voted. This upset the Daily Express somewhat - which was the minimum limit to my expectations. In contrast, just over 500,000 voted for the petition for "no deal". Over a million demonstrated in London for remaining yesterday. In contrast Farage's leave march on London managed 200. Still, Farage claimed, with Discoboyish panache that "20 million were with us in spirit." I suppose dead people's support can be an asset in certain situations...

Ha ha!! Apply Farage's own logic: if 200 turn ups equates with 20 million in spirit, that's a factor of 100,000, so 1 million turn ups equates with 100,000,000,000 - yes that's one hundred billion.

Shouldn't one-hundred trillion be shown as 100,000,000,000,000? 8)

My bad, it's obviously a hundred billion. You could just have sent me a pm to fix it.

On the day 29March 2019 Britain was set to leave European Union, the official campaign finally admits it broke the law. Deliberately. Massively. And overseen by Theresa May’s closest advisor & one of her ministers.

So Johnson loses his majority, loses 20 MPs, loses a vote to hand over control of the parliamentary agenda to parliament, loses a vote on a bill to prevent no deal Brexit, loses a vote to call a snap election and then he loses his brother. What a remarkably successful debut before parliamant as PM. No wonder he wants to prorogue it. "Britain Trump" indeed.
