Useful place to start for up-to-date research:
2021 seems to be carrying on where 2020 left off...
11 countries, and we have trade agreements with 7 already, and are negotiating with 2 more.
Still, opportunities for all those fishermen to sell their fresh fish to instead of the EU I guess...
About 350 days since first UK covid case, and we still haven't controlled our borders properly...
Island nation, yet one of the highest covid rates per million population...
Still, at least the fish are happy (not going to link to that idiot).
Another link to the original trilogy leaves us ☹...
(Only 2 weeks left of 2020, how much more can it do!?)
Carry on films on TV form a big part of my childhood.
Another part of my childhood film going passes... RIP.
(2020 just keeps on giving, and we've still December to get through!)
2020 keeps on giving ☹
And buy an EU passport from Malta or Cyprus...
All those movies while going through cancer treatment... RIP.
(2020 is NOT a good year!)
Isn't thst (bullying) another report they're trying to redact/bury?
Ken Ishiwata passes away...
Not the most reliable source, but apparently Leadsom has said its only a temporary ban (until scientific understanding improves...).

He used a trick... he lied.
Exactly, we paid £267 million a week, not £350 million.
Osborne said that is what he would do / what would happen. He promised something in the future. And you've already pointed out that politicians can do that within the law.
Johnson said "we give £350 million to the EU". That was a lie, as we didn't.
Its strange how leavers like to apply the facts so loosely to support their arguments...
A manifesto is a promise of what might be done/happen in the future.
In this case a specific lie was made by a public official. E.g. he actually repeated the lie as the official statement of the mayor.
(And repeated it after it being written about by the head of the ONS.)
Not sure if I like the ending. Yes it makes perfect story telling sense... but with all the characters and stones there, it doesn't make sense to me.
Nearly 3 years since the referendum.
(Advisory, not a super majority, law breaking and bending on both sides, but mainly by leave.)

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Plausible analysis of what Brexit means in near/mid/long term (not sure how many of the Brexit voters thought they were voting for this):
(Again sorry if link not working...)
Now I'm completely for remain, but as things move on I worry if anyone in the government is actually doing anything to sort out this sort of stuff:
(Edit - Sorry can't get link to work properly.)

No nice EU trade deal for UK?
Why can't the country change its mind...
It could be in the interest of hard line Brexiters to stall. We then fall out of the EU with no deal, out of customs union, trade area and freedom of movement. UK then has to slash taxes, and state spending (e.g. privatise the NHS), and turn us into the large tax haven just off the EU shores.
