The oven was not quite ready

Boris Johnson says the UK must prepared for no trade deal with the EU from Jan 1

Says EU not willing to give UK a Canada style deal

If the EU comes back "with a fundamental change of opinion" then the UK will listen. But says that doesn't sound likely after the summit

An Australia deal is a deal, and much like Canada requires state aid.

The PM is conflating no deal with an 'Australia deal' and hoping people don't notice. (and it seems to be working!)

A really grim winter ahead unfortunately

2021 will also be a year where they can bury bad recessions, it's been a longheld suspicion by some commentators that the government would be able to mask financial impacts of a no deal behind the recession caused by covid.

Australia wants a free trade deal with the EU because it's unhappy with the current arrangement !

"London is behaving exactly as you'd expect if it was preparing to sell a compromise involving painful concessions as a hard won triumph.

That doesn't guarantee that's the plan, but all the hysterics and drama would fit neatly into that script."

Talks that were never really off are back on.

Frost

"We have agreed that a basis for negotiations with the EU & barnier has been re-established. Intensive talks will happen every day & begin tomorrow afternoon, 22 October, in London."

Fishing and state aid were the previous stumbling blocks

Still loving Marcus Rashford's work right now.

https://twitter.com/MarcusRashford?

A lot of these businesses offering help must have really struggled over the last few months.  Mumtaz used to be a really good curry, though I haven't been for years.  Will make an effort to visitif I get the chance when this blows over.

isn't 13/8 SPOTY the equivalent of finding money in the street?

Incredible efforts all year

or will they find a special humanitarian category for him?

Weird stuff this week anyway. 

Chancellor hands out another £12 billion ...

... while PM loses baton to Burnham for a paltry £5m

and doubles down against popular soccer player on child poverty issue for the sake of £20m

He has to get in the top 6 though. Can imagine the hoohah from the scum if he gets nominated for the top 6 for non sporting reasons.  Think he is a lay right now.   I think you lay when people are flavour of the month with SPOTY and back when somebody else is.   Think he wins if in the 6.

He's odds-on on Betfair right now.

Usually there'd be no chance - they'd give him some other award or something but there may not being an issue with giving SPOTY to someone for non-sporting reasons in a year when there has been absolutely sod all sport.

FWIW I backed him at about 7/2 a while ago.  I have just laid him at 1.4 for top 3 (he has been backed at 1.1 at some stage).   I think he is a first or nowhere bet.

£44 done at 500/1 on bf on rashford.   You have to feel for that 'stealing it' layer.  Rashford is a million without covid.
