This neatly sums it up.

Johnson capitulates on Brexit

Britain will have a one-way open border, but government has little choice. Eighty-five per cent of all our fresh vegetables and fruit and two thirds of our bacon, bangers and ham arrive in 10,000 lorries each day from the continent. Lidl alone has 1,300 trucks bringing food each day.

If each of those lorries were subject to the routine WTO-type checks, then even a five minute inspection would produce queues going to back to the Belgian border.

If you are that good then why aren't you a world leader or making wads of cash telling peoples fortunes or making predictions. Seeing I am in a somewhat happy mood I clicked on it for you and guess what CORRECT

Sorry - should have put a warning on that for the unsuspecting.

My humble apologies to any who've opened it.

HUGE (or FURY or OUTRAGE) in caps is an express clickbait trademark. "Brexit victory" is another telling sign. For the express, if a pigeon shits on a statue it's a "Brexit victory".

If you are using a real computer then you just have to hover over the link with a mouse and it reveals the target. I guess there's no such equivalent action on a phone ...

Press and hold the link, and the address comes up with a message asking do you want to open this in a new tab.
