Today's Excess....the same rag that tirelessly promoted the immigration fallacies.....sadly, that's a very large chunk of text, and includes words that are likely to cause confusion for the readership with their inability to understand their meaning, but, since "Enemies of the People " ! has already been used, "Traitors " is simplistic enough as an alternative for the readers to comprehend .

Anyway, the operational delay now means we can go on holiday to Brean Sands that week, static caravan to save you wondering, terribly common I know, without fear of road blocks and burning tyres on the M5 both ways.

Of course, if this charade extends to June, this will clash with the Ashes series and Cricket World Cup !

A bit slow to start but worth watching.

I note that that human bogbrush Carney is very quiet now.

Astute readers will immediately note this is not Brext related.....however, it does involve another much adored Tory ideology ....

Here's another glowing testimony to ?....privatisation.

From Brexhibitionist to Brexhaustion... a brilliant new dictionary of Brexit

The UK’s decision to leave the EU has given rise to any number of fascinating new words. There’s “Brexit”, “Brexiteer”, “Brino”, “Bregrets”, “Brexodus” – and now, as Theresa May begs the EU for more time to work out what on Earth to do next, “Brextension”.

But what other useful new Brexpressions will we be hearing in the coming weeks?

Brexhume (verb). To bring a completely unchanged Brexit deal back before the Commons in a 78th attempt to pass it.

Brexercise in futility (noun). Any attempt to explain how the Secretary of State for Brexit can passionately urge MPs to vote for a delay to Brexit, and then immediately vote against it himself.

Brexpertise (noun). The blend of skill, wisdom and judgment that leads a Prime Minister to permit her Chief Whip – the man in charge of getting MPs to vote for her plan for Brexit – not to vote for her plan for Brexit.

Brexpletives (noun). The considered response to the news that Parliament has now voted against every conceivable Brexit outcome.

Brexistential crisis (noun). The moment a voter, journalist, or Prime Minister starts to question whether life has meaning.

Brexhaustion (noun). A heartfelt longing for the days when no one outside their immediate families had ever heard of Steve Baker, Anna Soubry, Andrew Bridgen or Lord Adonis.

Brexhibitionist (noun). Backbench Conservative MP who can be found at any time of day or night on television news programmes, typically bellowing spurious analogies about the Second World War.

Brexcitement (noun). Eager anticipation of the moment when representatives of the German car industry leap out from wherever they’ve been hiding and shout, “Don’t worry, Britain! Here we are to save the day, by ordering Angela Merkel to order Jean-Claude Juncker to order Michel Barnier to offer you a completely brilliant last-minute deal!”

Brexcommunicate (verb). To deselect a parliamentary candidate for displaying insufficient enthusiasm about the prospect of a no-deal Brexit.

Brextortion (noun). The process of extracting £39billion from the UK Government after a no-deal Brexit, by simply refusing to talk to it until it hands it over in a panic.

Brexpiry date (noun). The moment when the UK’s political agenda will finally stop being dominated by Brexit, forecast by experts to coincide roughly with the heat death of the sun.

The fightback is starting, in the news this evening,
An anti-EU group which calls itself Brexit Direct Action claims it has been inundated with requests from campaigners to stage mass blockades of Britain’s major transport links. The group, which aims to “organise and coordinate action against those whose intension is to delay/stop Brexit”, has urged its followers on social media to mobilise after MPs voted for Brexit to be postponed. Brexit Direct Action wrote on Twitter: “Several social media groups have been in contact to ask if we’ll help gather support for a national truck drivers protest if #Brexit is delayed.”
It has vowed to take “direct action and protest” if an extension to Article 50 is granted by all 27 EU member states.

The plan to “bring this country to its knees” and urged Brexiteers across the country to get involved.
A statement posted by the group on Twitter read: “Brexiteers all over the country are planning to bring this country to its knees by blocking the main arterial routes - M1, M6 M25, M62, A1, A55, M5, M4, M42, M55, M61, A66 etc.
“If you live close to one of these major motorways and are willing to take part then prepare to move at short notice.”
It added: “Don’t worry about the legal side of things, the national organiser is sorting that out.”
Brexit Direct Action’s Twitter followers responded enthusiastically.
One person replied: “Go for it, most of the drivers I talk to just want to get out.”
Another said: “Totally agree with what you’re planning.

Judging by traffic in central London last week, no point in trying to block Euston Rd., Oxford Street, Pentonville Road etc etc. Highbury Corner is a disaster too...
