He is senile at 70. Living with a 100 a day would drive any one around the bend. Poor guy never had a chance. THe Greek was the worst father you could have. Plus his gran and her friends (Cartland) being told to marry Diana.
I doubt if he wants the job. Poor guy is played out. Leave him to talk with his flowers.

The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) has said it "could not support" Boris Johnson's revised Brexit plan for Northern Ireland.

Well that is to be expected. Why Johnson is still trying to get them on board is only part of the blame game.

Boris Johnson’s Brexit negotiators have so far only presented the EU with a draft of the withdrawal agreement with the backstop scrubbed out, UK government sources have confirmed.

In a move that has caused tensions with EU leaders, Johnson’s team are refusing to put forward a written proposal to Brussels at this stage for fear it will be rejected out of hand or publicly rubbished.

Instead, they want to wait until almost the last minute before the October summit before presenting a plan to the EU, with just two weeks before the UK is due to leave the bloc.

Johnson has his deal without DUP support.

Boris Johnson and EU reach Brexit deal without DUP backing
UK PM announces ‘great deal that takes back control’ despite refusal of DUP to back agreement

Boris Johnson and Jean-Claude Juncker have jointly announced agreement on a new Brexit deal despite the refusal of the Democratic Unionist party to give its backing.

After weeks of negotiations that went deep into the early hours of Thursday morning and with mounting pressure to have legal text ready for EU leaders to read before a summit, the two leaders said an agreement was ready.

The prime minister tweeted: “We’ve got a great new deal that takes back control – now parliament should get Brexit done on Saturday so we can move on to other priorities like the cost of living, the NHS, violent crime and our environment.”

Leaders are now expected to give their political approval to the revised withdrawal agreement and political declaration on Thursday afternoon.

In a letter to the president of the European council, Donald Tusk, Juncker, the president of the European commission, said it was time for the British parliament to do its part to bring the first phase of the negotiations to an end.
Will it get through Parliament?
Remember this is only the withdrawal agreement. Next is the trade negotiations.

'Playing a blinder' means performing a tatical action with exceptional skill - mostly used in relation to sport.

Yeah, the deal on the Irish sea crosses one of their infamous 'blood red line'. They also don't like the idea of a simple majority at some point voting to basically unite with their Southern cousins.

Which we all know will happen. The DUP will be given new drums for Billy boy to belt the living daylights out of. :lol:

a), it's not yet happening soon, the demographics are not right yet.
b) as soon as any move in that direction happens, the orangescum will resume the Troubles.
