Yesterday’s election in the UK has overshadowed a less important but pretty spectacular development in the South Pacific: The archipelago of #Bougainville, which is home to 200.000 people, has voted for #independence in a #referendum. A crushing majority of 98% voted for secession from Papua New Guinea which means that the world is likely to have a new nation pretty soon.

What are the bets that nothing will happen with this until at best at least until after the election, but more likely until after they pushed through Brexit, if ever?
The revelation comes as it was confirmed that prosecutors have received a file of evidence from the Metropolitan Police that could lead to criminal charges against the Vote Leave campaign, which was spearheaded by Johnson and Cummings.
Johnson ‘knew about Vote Leave’s illegal overspend’, says MP

I think he's slightly too optimistic and it will be very difficult to stop Vote Leave (who now form the government) from ruining the country. Otherwise I think this is a good summary of the mess we're in now.

The Window for Brexit May Already Have Closed

Interesting. Nigel Farage has just proclaimed that the Leave vote in the EU referendum has power, but no legitimacy.
She [von der Leyen] was confirmed by a margin of 383 votes to 327. She needed the backing of 374 out of 747 MEPs to win.
That's 51.3% (383 votes out of 747 MPs) or even 53.9% (383 votes out of 710 votes). As a reminder, Leave won the EU referendum with 52% of the votes (i.e. less than von der Leyen). Logical conclusion: The Leave win in the EU referendum might have power, but certainly no legitimacy.

Fascinating (and I think very plausible) read about what might have happened if the result of the EU referendum had been the other way around. In a way we would be in a fairly similar situation now, a deeply divided country with a destroyed political culture. Showing that the real culprit for the mess we're in isn't Theresa May (although she contributed heavily) but David Cameron, who instigated the referendum in the first place for party political reasons, to unite his divided country. And failed abysmally. Quite possibly destroying his party (I think there's a good chance the Tories will split up) and breaking up the UK (I think if they get their referendum there's a good chance Scotland will leave the UK. Northern Ireland being reunited with the Republic of Ireland I think is also possible).

For the next time Piers Moron (or any other moron for that matter) claims people voted for no deal:

Okay, someone explain this to me: quite a few Brexiteers and Leave voters as well as parts of the government keep saying we can't have a second EU referendum. One of their arguments is "you can't ask the people to vote until you get the result that you want". Yet it seems to be fine for the government to have one "meaningful vote"after another to try to get Theresa May's Brexit deal through Parliament. Isn't that voting until you get the result that you want?
