    Lol will be interesting to see what the Labour Twitter trolls do with this one. They went after the SNPís Joanna Cherry en masse the last time, when she also spearheaded the successful case taken to the European Court of Justice to prove that revocation of A50 was both possible and legal.

    I still have a faint glimmer of hope that citizens of Uxbridge and South Ruislip can pull their shit together in the next election, just to top it all off.

    Official summary of decision in the Cherry case: "The Court will accordingly make an Order declaring that the Prime Ministerís advice to HM the Queen and the prorogation which followed thereon was unlawful and is thus null and of no effect."

    Back to work you slackers

    He had over 50% of the total vote last time, labour with 40. I cant see it sadly.

    It's tough, what with the dribbling idiots that tend to be attracted to that particular backwash of London. Especially as it voted Leave in the first place.

    It would be hard, but not impossible. They'd need to get a lot of mileage out of the Heathrow betrayal.

    If the brexit party ran against him there it would certainly help.

    He could, apparently him and JRM were both doing to heavy polling in their areas with concerns about their seat.

    Though there is the whole 'chicken' hypocrisy angle he might care about.

    Interesting thread here on why English law was never going to find against the government.

    The reversal on the student visas policy is going to lose him a fair few Tory voters.

    It's strange why he did that, and the timing of it.

    I can only think that, after No Deal, the Brexiteers will be wanting the drawbridge pulled up, so the detriment of business. So allowing international students to stay for longer after they study is probably their way of offering a compromise for recruiting talent.

    Or, they just dont want poor people? But are happy to take in high skilled as big business needs them?

    Yep. Whether they like it or not, the government will need to concede to big businesses' demands to recruit talent from abroad, particularly in areas where there is already a skills shortage.

    Although the twats at Migrations Watch are already claiming this is a way to recruit cheap labour after Brexit.

    Hmm. Unfortunately it's exactly that audience that needs to hear his message, and you know Morgan will make some smug remark about him not wanting to appear.

    Canít help but feel that Boris is actually being a lot of peopleís ideal PM at the moment. As much as it all smacks of complete idiocy Iíd say heís probably already cemented a huge swath of Brexit parties votes.

    Exactly. I honestly don't know why anyone would go on there. Unless youre a contact in his phone, you get booked for a 10 minute slot and he spends nine of those shouting over the top of you.

    Every now and then you get an 'Im quite literally a communist' moment but, in the main, its just not worth the hassle.
