@AlanEngland4 You are of course correct. But that’s my argument not yours. There wasn’t a mention of deals on the ballot paper. But you then contradict yourself by claiming leave as a mandate for no deal or some particular deal. It can’t be both not mentioned and a mandate for no deal.

@Arron_banks I don’t agree that it is a surrender document but if you think it is then I see why your position follows. I note and understand your position but don’t share it and it isn’t self evident. It’s s matter of opinion.

On the night of the referendum result I was waiting with Toby to go on ITV. It looked like Leave would lose narrowly. Toby told me that this wouldn’t be the end of it. He told me of plans to press on, call for another referendum and use the loss as a springboard for leaving.

Just to be clear what it meant to my family. The confiscation of their property, years in hard labour camp for my grandfather, exile to the edges of Siberia for my Dad (aged 10) and my grandmother. Never going home again. All this happened because of October 1917.

I’m in an unaccustomed position with Katie Hopkins. My normal attitude is sympathy to almost anyone in trouble. But she’s different. She hypothesised she could make a fortune by saying awful things, becoming a horrible racist. It’s important for public discourse that she failed.

I wonder if it’s ok when condemning the behaviour toward Owen Jones & Anna Soubry, to gently point out that John McDonnell called for Tory MPs not to be able to show their faces in public without being challenged by direct action. And this shows at least the problem with that.

How can someone be Foreign Secretary, take themselves seriously as possible PM or even be a lead columnist on the Daily Telegraph and still think that there will be an implementation period without a deal? Here are the final 2 pars of Boris Johnson’s column this morning. Amazing.

The idea that the person responsible for the quote on the right was selected as a Labour candidate AFTER this became public is so appalling I genuinely wonder if I am reading a piece of invented news or have somehow misunderstood. But I don’t think I have.

Amazing how people don’t even realise they are antisemitic. Got an email saying “the Jewish lobby is getting desperate”. I suggested she might want to rethink that because it it was racist thinking. She was furious at being called racist adding “that’s a typical Jewish response”.
