Besides leaving that makes 2 things to do in Stranraer then.

Unfortunately there is no longer a port in Stranraer.

Johnson will soon find out that delivering Brexit is going to be far, far, far more difficult than he realises.

We might be facing five years of Toryism but the impact of Brexit will rip them apart.

The only good thing about a large Tory majority is he might be able to sideline the ERG nutters and avoid doing anything too disastrous economically.

I think the right wing nutters in the Parliamentary Conservative Party will have far greater sway now than even before.  I don’t see many of the newly elected Tory MPs as being ‘one nation moderates’.

 (Johnson's) false claims about the withdrawal agreement are part of his wider rhetorical pitch: that, as he put it again in his victory speech on Friday morning, the UK is “leaving the EU as one United Kingdom”. Even if we ignore the Scottish question, this is utterly fraudulent. It is a matter of fact that Northern Ireland is not about to leave the EU on the same terms as Britain.

He's a compulsive liar.

Aye, one nation canon fodder.

Yanis Varoufakis is the first name that springs to mind, certain he was a professor prior to becoming Greek finance minister! Some great talks on youtube from him about his time as finance minister and other subjects, as an aside.
Also, his wife is the girl Jarvis Cocker is singing about in Common People.

UK banking system 'resilient' to no-deal Brexit, says Bank of England

The scenario, which goes beyond what most analysts would expect even from a worst-case Brexit, involves a UK recession with GDP falling by 4.7%, with interest rates rising to 4% and the unemployment rate going up to 9.2% and is the toughest "war game" test yet thrown at the UK banks.

We're fucked but the banks will be fine.

They won't.

They won’t buckle. But once “no deal” is the default position of the UK then it will force some hard discussions within the 27 and flush out what really is their combined bottom line. The “ticking clock” that Barnier kept spooking Theresa May with will now be ticking in his ear too as he tries to make sense of 27 different competing national interests.

So Mr Johnson is going to enshrine a 2020 only transition period in law to ensure no deal is on the table. EU will no doubt buckle.

Maybe I'm being whooshed but doesn't this 100% strengthen the EU negotiator?
