    Sounds like you are describing EU leadership, and Barniers report to the 27 heads of state.
    The EU matters, and everyone else must toe the line, wherever the EU decides to draw it. They are not as important, or significant as they seem to think they are.

    So you aren't aware Angela is taking over the EU Captaincy for the next 6 months Syb, Barnier is a fukin muppet with a straight jacketed negotiating position with means that under the Yermans tenure the EU will cruise into a WTO exit over the next 6 months - Angela won't let that happen and will tell the Frenchman and the midget running France to back off in favour of concessions on their hardline approach - simple enough for you ya muppet.

    The way in which the German Government has handled the Covid-19 crisis has given them some much needed support with over 60% backing their lockdown policies. That's the result of some very strong leadership in a national emergency, putting people before the economy.

    A pity Boris didn't do the same, especially when he had a couple of weeks grace with knowledge of what was happening in Italy. His lack of leadership in such an emergency, including the failure to sack Cummings, has pretty much sown the seeds of failure in his government as shown in recent opinion polls.

    Even now the UK has failed to implement strategies...all talk and no action, just like the way it has handled Brexit.

    No point in hiding from the reality of the gap between a country that gets things right and one that gets things wrong.

    Yeah, Boris has gone right off making any comparisons lately, for some unfathomable reason.

    I rather think the incompetence of this rabble Tory cabinet led by its feckless and lazy buffoon of a PM is becoming increasingly apparent to pretty much everyone except, I suppose, for the more profoundly intellectually challenged and those entering their dementia.

    What is of notable interest is that the inflexible and absurdly dogmatic stance adopted by the inner BoJo cabal of Orcs, manipulated by Goebbels Cummings, of refusing to negotiate sensibly an EU trade agreement or to extend the process is not shared by the British people or for that matter the captains of industry. And of greater interest, certainly to th world at large, the collegiate approach taken by the EU in supporting Barnier is now polarising to the degree that several key member states have had enough of appeasing the Brexit loons and now want to fuck Britain and be done with it, a reaction that is much deserved in my book and somewhat overdue.

    As I have said before, one of the mainstays of the UK's attraction to Uncle Sam was, is, and always shall be, its close trading connections with the 27 EU member states and if BoJo undermines that relationship in pursuing his barmy Brexit policy, devoid of any doctrine beyond the destructively anarchic lurch back into some weird Empire Redux fantasy, then broken down Brexit Britain will almost certainly be the inevitable economic consequence. Lynne Truss, the stupid and air headed trade minister soon to be sacked, was told this in no uncertain terms during her trip to suck American cock in Washington but Dommo Goebbels is no economist and, like most of the Brexit rabble, is tone deaf when it comes to reality.

    Europe is tiring of the Clown and his silly posturing, they are serious minded folk who believe in doing the best for their citizens, so this egregious, flip-flopping of BoJo as he does his impressions of a vaudevillian, cod Churchill with bad jokes and piffle-waffle ad-libs does not play well to them other than to provoke amused scorn and derision.

    In some ways we are indeed living in interesting times but only in the sense that Britain is now governed by a pack of Jokers elected by a majority drawn from the constituency of the stupid, the ignorant, the deluded and the malicious.

    I see £ buys 38 baht today and we are back to a EUR 1.11 but the slide back down against the dollar, now at $1.24, is the real marker and as BoJo again threatens WTO Brexit, something even the WTO have said is dumb, the markets are building in further rate falls in their trades.

    If the fat buffoon does hasten a WTO exit and this is finally acknowledged as the British position by th end of this week then the collapse is assured.

    Near parity at $1.1, EUR 1.00 and 35 baht is the future.

    There was a time when I might have pitied your impending downfall and personal failure, but you continue to wallow in the apparent shortcomings of others, rather than admit your failure, and move on. So be it.

    Next round of EU budget talks next week. Germany looking at a prospective 42% rise in contributions and a c1 Trillion Euro budget 2021-27 based on 2018 GDP, with the COVID impact those contributions and increases are going to be more thorny.

    Kick out Hungary from EU, that would well compensate for the loss of the British net contribution.
    Would also send a strong signal to other member states who are thinking of dismantling democracy.

    Crikey, this bloke has Sausages levels of delusion, with more than a hint of Buttfly. He is conveniently ignoring (as is the EU MO) that the UK was the one that vocally challenged the EU but had a cohort of other countries behind it, countries which will now have to step into the limelight. I for one am going to enjoy the next decade.

    Brexit has 'unblocked' EU from doing what it wants, bloc's ambassador to UK says


    Britain's departure from the EU has 'unblocked' Europe from acting in certain policy areas, the bloc's ambassador to the UK has said.


    Joćo Vale de Almeida, Europe's first representative to Britain after Brexit, said the UK leaving had also increased support for the union overall.


    He argued that while Brexit was a "lose-lose" situation, there was also a "bright side" whereby Britain's previous vetoing of important EU policies was no longer taking place.


    The spectacle of the difficult departure has also served as a warning tale for EU citizens to "realise that nothing should be taken for granted", he said.


    While inside the union, the UK had a reputation for blocking integration and being a difficult partner.


    EU parliament says no 'consent' for watered-down Brexit trade deal


    Separately, polls have suggested a general increase in support for EU membership across most member states throughout the course of negotiations - the opposite of the "domino effect" predicted by some Brexiteers.


    "I keep saying and believing that Brexit was a lose-lose situation. This being said, we always have to try and look on the bright side of things and the bright side in terms of Brexit on the 27 is two things," Mr Vale de Almeida told a seminar hosted by the Chatham House think-tank.


    "First, is that a number countries and citizens in the union realise that nothing should be taken for granted and you see that in the opinion polls - the support for the EU went up instead of down after Brexit. That's a sign of people being aware how attached they are to the idea of being together. That's one positive effect of Brexit in a way in political terms."

    He continued: "The other is that it has unblocked some policy areas where there was some restraint on the side of Britain and that has liberated some impulses and some dynamism within the Euroepan Union.


    "I take foreign policy and security, in terms of the defence side of it, what we can do together. There's been a remarkable development in the last few years in the EU's capability to act in this domain.


    "The other one is of course everything that has to do with the budgetary dimension ... all in all I remain of the opinion that it was not good for everybody, but there are bright sides of it and we are trying, I guess, to maximise the new possibilities of action inside the union once the UK is out."


    While Britain's reputation for blocking EU initiatives was largely justified, since it left other countries have stepped forward to raise objections on certain issues.

    As if COVID and QE were insufficient by themselves, the latest BoJo piffle waffle about a WTO Brexit has devalued £ yet again. It's back down to 37 baht, EUR !.10 and $1.23.

    Broken down, bankrupt Brexit Britain ..........Labour government in five years for sure.

    Bo-Jo is still banking on leaving without actually leaving. It's not going to work out well come December.

    The likes of Rees-Mogg and Cummins want sterling to tank and have directly or indirectly placed bets on it.

    BoJo is a credulous buffoon.

    This is a genuine danger, not just a bargaining position.

    The only consolation is that there could be an unprecedented and completely justified collapse of confidence in this government, which would allow an invigorated Labour party to step in at the next election.
