If you read the words quoted, that are attributed to JB and you disagree, you should be sectioned (if you lived in a country that had appropriately resourced mental health care).

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49683797

In that lecture the serially biased JB said “what conceivable moral force do the public’s representatives have in seeking to tackle knife crime if we disregard a law enacted by parliament”

Obviously the prospect of being sectioned is unappealing so can you explain why I should agree that Boris not asking for a deal impacts knife crime

I should have been very clear that you don’t need to be sectioned if you are bizarrely radicalised edited by mod

and if there isn’t a deal, we lose control of our society completely, I’d wager knife crime increases. I have sat in and teleconned in to many Local Resiilence Forum’s for London (obviously I’m a minor player but we will need environmental regulation), it will be meltdown, Gove had advisers in the meetings and Boris is very much aware.

Sounds realistic nice guy. Can you post a link to the evidence that in the event of No Deal we lose control of our society completely?

Or perhaps post a link to the opposition’s version of Yellowhammer. Would be interesting to read an impact statement considering the risks of abandoning Brexit and Remaining or a Corbyn government. Have much civil unrest do you expect? What affect does it have on political engagement? I’m sure you guys have properly assessed all the implications and produced a study right?

Agreed, enjoy it while you can because soon there’ll be no wine left and brewing moonshine in the garden shed will be all that’s left

Which will disproportionately affect the poor who don’t have gardens or sheds

Yellowhammer is for the purposes of contingency planning so it's reassuring the report is realistic because the response will be appropriate. All the gasps and European style gesticulations that the government has produced a report resembling any one of Tighty's links from the last 2yrs is standard remoan behaviours.

It matters not what the starting point is and any fixation with historical point A is another tactic to manipulate remaining. Looking at point B and where we finish after preparation or recognition that it's merely 3 months of tomato looting is a more progressive outlook. Yellowhammer concludes preparations slowed because of Brexit fatigue caused by pointless delays and division. So rather than unite and deliver clear vision & direction Remain have sabotaged planning, moaned about no planning, moaned about money spent on planning and now moan about realistic planning.

The only moan I have is the Yellowhammer title which is not catchy enough, Black Swan has more of a ring.

Sat here watching the BBC news and its borderline scandalous the negativity being spread is foolhardy and somewhat dangerous.

Talk of rioting on the streets does no one any good.

If only Andy McDonald was as well briefed as Blonde.

So true, it will be the fear of looting next, then riots and looting will be played out

Remain approach/rhetoric right from the start has been a real eye opener. Let’s keep pushing worst case thinking, so socially responsible

If you don’t agree with something these days then green light to disrupt to the max. I also see on the news that climate protesters are going to bring Heathrow to a standstill flying drones. Find this attitude all very French really.

Looting for the last fresh tomato gonna be a thing

The BBC coverage on the ten o’clock news last night was bang out of order.

It the old tactic of portraying the worst case scenario findings as expected to happen.


once again the title change: Original doc was the 'base scenario', a month ago and they have changed to 'reasonable worse case scenarios".

We knows there are other, longer more detailed docs govt not published either

It was published like 6 weeks ago. It's an organic process. The title is only accurate/relevant if you're saying zero progress has been made to mitigate as the deadline draws close.

It's six weeks until your holiday and your suitcase is stone cold empty. But what's this? The day before you travel it's full of clothes and amber solaire. Yet for accuracy you must still call it an empty suitcase?!?

desperate stuff.  Have you ever worked on a project (that wasn't an unmitigated disaster)?

The document was written to highlight likely risks.  If action is taken to reduce the risk it should be detailed in an accompanying document.  It is crystal clear that the document was renamed to sync with the government lies about it when it was leaked.

Only to say when you're ordered to publish specific confidential documents you probably don't voluntarily add bonus accompanying confidential documents for free.

It's like being stopped flying back from your holiday in Colombia and security asking you to open a specific suitcase. You don't open all your suitcases, empty your hand luggage, pull your pants down, squat on the floor and start coughing.

the government have now allocated like £8b to prep so taking a guess I'd say action is being taken to reduce risk and any document is out of date on the day of publication.

This is a great piece of analysis by Beth Rigby

Boris Johnson has provoked a culture war he might come to regret

https://news.sky.com/story/sky-views-boris-johnson-has-provoked-a-culture-war-he-might-come-to-regret-11806666

Is it a great piece of analysis or simply unfounded personal opinion?

The analysis part is e.g. the polls show twice as many voters think he makes a better PM than his closest rival. Which is qualified by pure speculation "But the confrontations which are coming could prove so divisive and radical that many of those middle of the road voters think Mr Johnson is too big a gamble as prime minister"

The analysis part is e.g. "Paula Surridge, political sociologist at the University of Bristol says the evidence suggests the fifth of voters with weak or no Brexit identity are leaning to the Conservatives". Which is qualified by the illogical "But his entire success or failure is predicated on leaving the EU on 31 October"

I think criticism of any PM is comical when the challenge is illustrated like this "There will be angry clashes in the Commons if he does bring back a deal. And if he doesn't? The conflicts will become uglier still"

As an aside when talking about the 21 Tory MP's heartlessly expelled do we need to keep referring to "Winston Chruchill's grandson"? It's the kind of introduction people get when they enter Celebrity Big Brother. I'm sure Andy Murray's mum started all this, whatever her name is.

One example

Yellowhammer doc confirms that there would be medical supply shortages in event of no deal because they’re so dependent on Dover crossing. They say the govt cannot stockpile all the medicines that we need.


Yep they confirm that the problem is the reliance on a single route...not the global availability of goods

So a big benefit of Brexit is that our reliance on a single route can be drastically mitigated...thus solving the problem EU membership brings

But the cost/time of the other routes drive the cost of goods up. Also, no matter how many routes you're using, won't one of them be your most reliant?

numerous competitors drive price down. For sure there are logistical challenges and transportation issues but they’re for the supplier to solve if they want to add a big chunk of commerce to their bottom line. I don’t think that the stress is on government to provide solutions in natural business. Added supply costs can be absorbed by reduced margins from competing businesses. We might even see a variety of ports spring back into life for the benefit of costal communities. Customer habits are more fluid these days and Boris just needs to compares the meerkat for medical every year like insurance or energy.
