“Unlikely” disappears from UK government Brexit papers

WINSTON SMITH GETS TO WORK ON BREXIT BRIEFING PAPERS

Faisal Islam has just pointed out some subtle rewording of Government papers on Brexit. The word “unlikely” in relation to a “no deal” has been quietly removed. Note the before and after examples below regarding medicines. Apparently, all departments have done the same thing.

Before…

After…
Update notice.

Although Mrs May says that her deal is the only deal, that she will not allow a second referendum and that she will not contemplate crashing out with no deal (although at one time “no deal was better than a bad deal”)…

And although traditionally, Cabinet responsibility demands loyalty, I see that this morning Rudd was proposing that if there should be no agreement on Mrs May’s deal (pretty much a certainty), a second referendum might have to be called.

And at the same time, Leadsom, the fox hunter, has been suggesting that a “managed” no deal (what’s that?) would be possible.

So, that’ll be May being strong, stable and clear… huh?

Pretty unfortunate choice of words, Ruth.

You know, I use Twitter and Facebook and it never costs me that kind of money.

I’ve wondered why, if the EU costs us so much money, we’re going to have to put up taxes and cancel spending projects when we leave, as opposed to having money to burn.

Well, that could explain stuff.

Ooops… mouth, foot, insert.

No, she will not.

Murray has been trying this one on us again. ┬áHe’s surely not stupid enough not to know this, so he must be lying.

Hey, Adam, we can feel the love. Hope you had a good St George’s day.

Good to see that the Tories will be campaigning on local issues. Ha bloody ha.

It’s funny, these guys are protesting about women wearing the hajib. Still, they probably look better covered up.
