Ok, I feel like I just distractedly binge-watched several seasons of "UK 2019" while playing on my phone, who won the tournament, Tyrion or Jamie Johnson?

I think we're technically still mid-season (although it's a very short season because Mad King Bozo is still committed to the prorogation [where do the showrunners get these terms] of "Parliament" for 5 weeks).

Bozo is suffering lots of defeats and resignations but I do get the feeling he's just drinking wine and gazing out of the windows of the Blue Keep with a self-satisfied smirk.

Operation Yellowhammer is the codename used by the UK Treasury for cross-government civil contingency planning for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit.

The government isn't releasing the Yellowhammer report...

After Johnson's gaff about Britain making a 'Titanic success of Brexit ' gaffe, you'd think the right would be a little more careful, instead we have the Telegraph saying "hold my beer"...



Not surprisingly some of the replies are gold.

Edit: Ok, I didn't read the article (and can't as it's firewalled) but apparently they do know the tale of Icarus. My bad. Reacted too quickly to the funny headline.

Along with the well-known bird story, Yellowhammer is also an anagram of Orwell Mayhem.

Just saying.

Johnson humiliated by Luxembourg PM at 'empty chair' press conference | Politics | The Guardian

Quote:
But Bettel said: “People need to know what is going to happen to them in six weeks time. They need certainty and they need stability. You cannot hold their future hostage for party political gain.” Gesticulating to the empty lectern, he added: “So now it is on Mr Johnson.”

Bettel raised his voice in frustration when asked by reporters whether Downing Street may be pursuing a sham negotiation in order to pin the blame on the EU for a no-deal Brexit: “I told him, ‘I hear a lot but I don’t read a lot’. If they want to discuss anything we need to have it written [down] … Don’t put the blame on us because they don’t know how to get out of the situation they put themselves in.”

Asked about the suggestion that Johnson would break the law to avoid extending article 50, Bettel said: “This wouldn’t happen in Luxembourg.”
