And now broke the law too, apparently.

I think I am going to run out of popcorn soon.

I got an email from my local council saying as an overseas voter I should quickly choose a proxy voter for me as a postal vote may not be quick enough in case of a snap general election.

And now, the EU has rejected Johnson’s plan.

Interesting that Johnson uses The Who's Won't Get Fooled Again as his intro music.

While pretty sure writers/artists have little or no say in pols' choice/use of their songs, would imagine Johnson did so with the blessing of Roger Daltrey who is a diehard Brexiteer.

Daltrey's reasoning being that The Who toured Europe before the EU therefore everything should still be the same as it was before.

In fact, many people in the music business say it will be "unviable" for smaller bands.

No, you’ve heard Johnson: All or Nothing and otherwise another delay

A deal worse than May's deal and much worse than the one we already have. Well done to everyone involved.
