…Because, according to Laura Kuenssberg, David Davis went to see Theresa Maybot today, being unaware of the latest plan to get the Cabinet, if not the Tory Party to agree on something that they can take to Brussels next week.
It didn’t go that well…
“Hear that David Davis went in to see the PM this morning after not knowing about Number 10’s ‘new plan’, but left the meeting still not having discussed the ‘new plan'”
So… if he doesn’t know the plan, how can he sell it to the EU?
I suppose it doesn’t really matter that much. After all, it seems (from what I heard on the radio…maybe Mr Davis should try listening to his?) that they want to be in the single market for goods, but not services, people (except for Ireland) or finance.
Since day one Brussels has said that the four freedoms are not divisible and that the UK can’t cherry pick!
I suppose it’s just possible no one in Whitehall or Westminster knows what “divisible” means.
Do you remember when Mr Davis first went to Brussels to meet with M Barnier… and Barnier and his team had all this paperwork and Davis had… erm… nothing? He was back in London by lunchtime.
And how at that point we all thought it would get better.
Hmmmm. How wrong we were.
And Scotland has come out of it worst.
Rather like our own referendum, everything they promised has turned to dust.
And if that wasn’t humiliating enough, it’s frequently been this no-hoper who was responsible for turning it to dust.
Imagine, decisions being made about Scotland by the likes of him!
Please, someone, rescue us from this…

It is simply unacceptable that UK Govt has so far refused to say that they will pick up the policing bill for President Trump’s visit, he is a guest of the UK Govt. I’ll be writing to the UK Govt demanding an urgent resolution to this matter.
So, there you have it.
Post Brexit jobs crisis sorted.
When you get paid off from your highly-skilled Aircraft factory job, you can easily get a job picking rasps. Well, for at least 2 months, off and on, dependent on the weather and the ability/willingness of someone else to pay the rent/food/electricity on the days you get no work.
Thank goodness for a brilliant PM, I say.
(Thanks to Ross Colquhoun for bringing it to my attention.)
Fluffy must have been needed in the kitchen to make a nice cuppa for Theresa after her hard day of being told over and over on social media by economists, journalists and lay people alike, that there is:
Hopefully, however, there will be a Brexit Davidend.

Someone needs to sit down with her and say: ‘Don’t smile. When you smile you look like someone who has never smiled naturally in their life & had to learn how to do it from a book.’
Over 5000 people have joined the SNP in the last few days. I’d like to say that we welcome you all. Together we can do this.
And finally, to those Scots, and folk around the world, (and very specially to Abu, who’ll be here in a few days), who are celebrating the end of Ramadan, Munguin and I wish you all ‘Eid Mubarak’.
