Not entirely sure what to think of this analysis. And if he's right where it is going to lead us.

I used to think Boris Johnson could get a Brexit deal. Not after last week | Simon Jenkins | Opinion | The Guardian

Even the watered down version: Although officials working on the rewrite said the paper had been deliberately “neutralised” it was still seen as too gloomy for publication to the general public.

Obviously a lot of guesswork, but I'd say educated guesses:

Is Boris Johnson bluffing? | Prospect Magazine

I tend to agree with Jonathan Lis, Of course it's still possible that the EU might blink, but I think it's much much more likely that Boris Johnson is indeed miscalculating and it won't. Which in turn will either trigger the U-turn of the century or the shortest premiership possible for Johnson. Because despite all the Blitz/Dunkirk/Bulldog Spirit propaganda, the British public will not accept the disruption no deal is likely to bring, especially because almost 50% voted against Brexit anyway and of the 50% leave voters the vast majority didn't vote for no deal (despite the assertions of Vote Leave etc).

Waffling in Latin, ignoring details and claiming you just need to believe won't help against the harsh realities of economics and business. And no amount of money from the magic money tree will help to prepare for no deal.

Sky Views: We can't prepare for no deal nearly as much as you might think

Oh, and don't claim you weren't warned once it is too late and the damage is done. When thousands of animals had to be slaughtered pointlessly. When hundreds of small businesses built over years or even lifetimes have needlessly gone bust.

The article is a bit older, but nothing substantial will have changed. Better stock up on tinned fruit and veg. And be prepared for rioting. Remember people were fighting over turkeys before Christmas, people were calling 999 when KFC ran out of chicken, etc.....

Blimey, even the tame BBC comes to the conclusion that Raab and Gove didn't talk about no deal in their EU referendum campaigning. And yet they keep claiming they did. How and why do they keep getting away with this?

The UK is well prepared for a no deal Brexit. In the case of medicine, food, fuel or water shortages the stoic Englanders will just be optimistic, develop a can do spirit and think of Dunkirk. Something like that.

The myth of “ruling out a No Deal Brexit”
 
According to Jacob Rees-Mogg the view of less than 100,000 people represents what the country wants. In other words, according to him the Tories are the country. Interesting attitude.

Is it time to start panic buying yet?

Currently I'm moving towards thinking it will be either Crash Brexit (formerly known as no deal Brexit) by incompetence (formerly known as accident) or no Brexit at all. I'd be very happy with the latter, but I fear the former is the more likely. Here's my reasoning:

As we know Theresa May's "deal" (it's not the deal anyway, just the withdrawal agreement) was just voted down again. Resoundingly. Tomorrow will see a vote about no deal. I think parliament will probably vote against no deal. So what happens then? In another vote parliament might then vote for an extension of article 50, but only just. But there's a catch: The UK can't unilaterally extend article 50, it can only ask the EU for an extension. To which the EU needs to agree unanimously. And the EU has already clarified that they will only consider an extension if the UK can present a clear reason and most importantly a clear plan how to resolve the issue. Which the UK can't. Because nobody has a f***ing clue how to fix this mess. Well, or at least not in a way they can agree on.

So the clock ticks down to the 29th of March when the UK will drop out of the EU by automatic operation of the law. Simple as that. Something the ERG nutcases will be very pleased with, and they will do their everything to achieve exactly that.

If no extension is granted because there is no agreeable proposal how and by when to resolve the issue but parliament still wants to avoid Crash Brexit, then it needs to get its act together and push through a revocation of article 50. Which the UK can do unilaterally. But at this point nobody is really talking about and at least at this point I don't see any real appetite for it either.

And all the while life is on hold, business is spending millions (or more likely billions) in trying to prepare, more and more international businesses are abandoning the UK, jobs are lost or not created and the economy suffers.

Interesting times we live in.....
