In other news, the Senate has voted by a margin of 59 to 41 to block Trump's emergency declaration and restore military funding he's stolen to pay for his fake border wall. This is the second time they've voted.

Meanwhile, the CEO of JP Morgan, the world's largest investment bank, says he does not believe there will be a trade deal between the U.S. and China before the 2020 election.

Finally, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called for an election and a vote of no confidence in his own government, again, and he's been shot down. Again.

Britain’s main opposition leader has rejected Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s taunting demand for a no-confidence vote in the government, saying he won’t support a new election unless a no-deal Brexit is ruled out.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn says Johnson should secure a delay to Britain’s EU exit — scheduled for Oct. 31 — and “then let’s have an election.”

I feel like both sides are doing the wrong thing here. The solution is to cancel the Brexit but no one wants to lead on that. Corbyn is still calling for another delay instead of cancellation.

    “I say we should cut off our hands because they get cold in the winter!”

    “Right! That sounds like a great idea….we’ll be better off without hands and then we can get prosthetics that won’t get cold”

    “How should we cut off our hands? I say just a clean swift cut and then we can worry about what happens after. I’m sure the artificial hands will be just as good.”

    “But…won’t we bleed out and be in a great amount of pain?”

    “Once we have the prosthetics it won’t be a problem.”

    “Shouldn’t we have some medical trappings to stop the bleeding?”

    “It’ll only be a little blood.”

    “No…that’s not how it works…it’ll bleed a lot…and maybe kill us. This may not be a great idea”

    “The hands are coming off come hell or high water! Just think of how great it’ll be for Halloween!”

    “Yeah…maybe, just maybe, we should reconsider…?”

    “Who’s with me for cutting off hands?!”

    Hold another referendum and have Brexit cancelled. I’m sure all the reasons it can’t be done or would be prohibatively hard would eagerly be listed by those folks who are in favor of Brexit (aha, morons) or who claim they are opposed but really want it to happen so they can complain about it (self important idiots). I can’t see that that’s really so hard to do if they just cut the crap and posturing and do it.

    And if the vote ends up pro-Brexit again, well, fuck ’em. Britain will get very much what they deserve.

    I can’t claim to have any real understanding of English politics but I still think it’s pretty clear that Brexit is a disaster waiting to happen and should be undone.
