96 per cent of Facebook users backed a no deal Brexit in our latest emoji poll.  1,622 people participated.

Suggestions that Boris may capitulate following the departure of Dominic Cummings have not come to fruition, with UK negotiators appearing to stand firm.  Even if a deal is struck it could still be vetoed by EU member states, with France the likely stumbling block.  Any short-term hit to the UK economy in the event of a clean break will probably be barely noticeable thanks to the government's economy-trashing Covid strategy.

If it weren't for the cowardice and complicity of the last Parliament, all this could have been dealt with last year and a post-Brexit Britain would have been back on its feet by the time the virus came calling.  Instead we face a crippling recession and may never be able to show that remoaners and project fear were wrong all along.
