The Grenfall Tower fire is shaping up to be really, really bad. 100 people feared dead due to shoddy building that people were repeatedly warned about.

Sinn Fein told May clearly that am agreement with DUP would be a violation of the Good Friday Agreement.

I love reading and watching the Brits go at it in politics. It makes all of the rhetoric here look tame.

Man restarting The Troubles just to try to prop up a government that's guaranteed to fail shortly anyway would be a heck of a move.

I'm guessing there's another election before the year is out.

Brexit: UK caves in to EU demand to agree divorce bill before trade talks

QUOTE
British negotiators have capitulated to key European demands for a phased approach to Brexit talks, agreeing to park discussions on free trade until they have thrashed out the cost of the multibillion-euro UK divorce settlement.

Putting a brave face on a concession that may further strengthen the tactical dominance of the EU, the Brexit secretary, David Davis, insisted his initial retreat remained consistent with long-term government strategy.

“It’s not how it starts, it’s how it finishes that matters,” Davis said in Brussels after the first day of formal talks. “Nothing is agreed until everything is agreed.”

Previously Davis had threatened to turn the issue into the “row of the summer” in a bid to avoid being held to ransom over the divorce settlement. He had hoped for talks on trade to run in parallel with divorce discussions.


These negotiations are going to be absolutely brutal for the UK, and there's no "undoing" this for them probably ever but at least for decades.

They're actually following through on Corbyn's suggestion and housing Grenfell victims in empty luxury condos nearby.
