As Svarty says there is nothing to negotiate but this exactly the arrogance shown by the UK politicians on both sides. This extension was not room to renegotiate but to tidy up the withdrawal process and has been completely misinterpreted by especially the tory gits. The new leaders in the EU will even be less amenable to the UK. They want a even more harder line drawn.


For what it's worth, I know Johnson is bluffing with an empty hand. They all are, even Rory despite him trying to give the impression that he's got a vague toehold on reality. Still, when three quarters of the Tory vote wants Brexit delivered come November, they've got to pretend they've got something that can do just that if they want to win.

Reality will start to bite as Halloween approaches and nothing happens though.
