Here's a clue - they can't actually implement brexit. You cannot be in, and out of it, or have the bits that we like and not the rest, so at the moment we are going to be matching the EU but implementing legislation that it has designed to disadvantage us. Eg Financial Services Directives that help France get City business like euro clearing. You couldn't make this stuff up. Through Brexit we heave jettisoned sovereignty and now have no control. Oh, and we still pay for this.

Why is the Press Corps so eagerly stuffing our throats with royal wedding dress designs and flag waving morons camped out in Windsor Great Park?
Surely we deserve a better press?

And tomorrow is just going to barf inducing sycophancy with that "dreadful little man" Nicholas Witchell draping his tongue on the pavement before him, and endless ex-debs with names like Petronella Farquarharson-Ponsonby cooing about her headgear, as they interview star-struck plebs on the pavements and grovel and genuflect and get the tone wrong somehow.

No, this Conservative stuffing of the Lords has to go. It was embarrassing under Cameron, who ennobled hairdressers and image organisers, and this is just a fit of pique over the EU Withdrawal Bill amendments.

Why on Earth is the Cup Final at 5.15? Its devalued! We used to get endless "Cup Final Build-up" with teams in new suits, leaving the hotel, on the coach down the M1, the road to Wembley, Motty and Barry Davies having orgasms, fans in the stadium, the marching military bands, Abide With Me, etc.
Now it just comes on after racing has finished, and we have had a ten minute news bulletin, and the teams pass the ball around sideways, backwards, and probably field weakened teams to spare Carlos kickaballs' groin strain for the big international paydays on the "pre-season tour".

I always look to the JC to provide independent critical scrutiny of Israeli policies in the occupied territories.

Unfortunately after thirty years I have yet to find any!

Its not democratic now that we know what a thin, empty shell of brexit is going to be delivered, to insist we hold to a vote taken when it meant resources for the NHS, Border Controls, the full cake and eat it with cherries on top farrago of lies and deceptions. If you cannot see what May is being reluctantly forced to accept is very different, then you are not looking. A democrat would accept the difference, and admit that the public has been diddled.

The member for the 17th Century has six Mogg-Sproggs (the latest is called "Sextus") and has declared he has no interest in himself becoming PM.
Neither does the UK.

The exact parallel would be cornering the residents of Yorkshire, gradually forcing them to live in a shrinking area until its the size of Leeds, and putting them under a blockade, restricting electricity and water supplies, periodically invading Leeds to drag people out, and shooting them with live ammo when they rattle the fence.

Its not good enough - and America should be embarrassed by its international isolation on this. But no wonder when Trump is decimating State Dept (and other Departments) and has made its ambassador to Israel Trump's Bankruptcy lawyer.

We still have to tell them that massacring kids with slingshots is unacceptable. Indeed we could do with toughening up on illegal settlement policy and violations of human rights in occupied territories. Palestinians support Hamas because Israelis have seen off everything else. They are rioting because of ten years of the blockade. They are fed up. Not terrorists, fed up with the stunted lives of poverty and discrimination that they are allowed by the occupiers.
