Of course. Have you ever been given a reason as to why Brexit is a good thing other than a crying baby gif?
Same number of reasons given for why remaining to have all these awful things implemented by the EU instead would be a good thing, I guess.

Theory now seems to be this is bluff as he's passed his own deadline.

Either way it's Vote Leave fascism and an end to all that's good and survives the plague.

i think we should remember that a lot of the sensible adults in the room that are now agreeing with the tories on social policy last year were painting themselves blue and yellow to bounce up and down on trampolines yelling "stop brexit" while Corbyn's labour was keeping the option of a soft Brexit open.

now we've got a sad blobfish who cant even be bothered to lie properly anymore driving us off a cliff while bald football fans on twitter post that toddler having a tantrum gif at anyone who points out the obvious. hooray

I see.

Pleased with how the workers Brexit is going then?

Your mistake was leaving it in the hands of the far-right. Still never mind.

The only reason they mention Australia rather than, say, Canada is because Australia have really hostile immigration policies. It's pure dogwhistling.

Why even go to the effort of that? He was elected on the basis that he had a deal ready to go.

it must be galling to Shoulders who has spent probably over a month's worth of time posting about Brexit over the last few years.

Business leaders have warned Boris Johnson that Britain’s economy is ill-prepared for a no-deal Brexit while companies face severe disruption from the coronavirus pandemic.

Business groups called for an urgent resolution in the Brexit talks after the prime minister told UK businesses to get ready for trading with the EU on terms “that are more like Australia’s” – code for leaving without a deal and relying on World Trade Organization terms.

Carolyn Fairbairn, the director-general of the CBI, said: “After four years of negotiations and so many hurdles crossed, this is no time to give up. Neither side can afford to fall at the final fence. A deal is the only outcome that protects Covid-hit livelihoods at a time when every job in every country counts.”

Mike Cherry, the national chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses, said firms were not ready to cope with a no-deal Brexit with only 10 weeks before the end of the transition period at the end of December.

“They’re being told to both prepare and simultaneously manage a fresh set of Covid restrictions. Many simply don’t have the time or money to make adjustments, even if they want and need to,” he said.

The pound fell on the international currency markets after Johnson’s televised intervention, sliding from a high of $1.2956 against the US dollar on Friday morning to a low of about $1.2869, before gradually recovering its losses. The currency also sold off against the euro, falling from €1.1050 to a low of about €1.0991 before staging a recovery...

Still trying to get my head round why anyone genuinely believed we'd get a socialist Brexit under the Tories. Unless they're accelerationists.

He's entirely human, here we see him with other non-lizard humans. He's trying to taste the air to see if there are predators around, but also, trying to lick someone in the line of succession to try and steal their power:

I’ve used my Canadian passport on those gates because I didn’t want to line up like a sap. Are they supposed to be strictly EU passports only? Always thought they were for any passport with one of them special chips in it.

Britons spend on average around 25 seconds at the passport control desk at Schiphol. It is estimated this will increase to 40-45 seconds next year due to the need for additional document checks.

It's a fucking nightmare!

E-gates are for use by non Visa Nationals (including EU, set to continue after December 31st).

Those extra 15-20 seconds will soon add up when there's hundreds of people needing to get through passport control. Bad news if you're at the back of the queue.
