"Any deal? What utter rubbish.

He is not stupid, so the is he dishonest?


Yes. He is, after all, a politician, and politicians are not renowned for honesty.

He can of course say 'I do not believe that any deal which will in fact be offered will be worse than no deal'. But he didn't. It is cheap and manipulative.


I agree.

He turns his own presumption of EU benificence into a rule of logic. It is shameful.


Indeed, it is. He is consumed by his own arrogance and his misplaced faith in the cesspit of corruption, waste and gross incompetence that is the EU.

Keir Starmer is almost certainly right, in the circumstances of what "no deal" would actually mean.


There is huge uncertainty in all this.

Would a deal whereby the EU demanded 1,000 billion be worth it? With no recogniseable or yet explained principles which might underly any calculation who knows what might be demnded? He turns a political prediction into an assertion of absolute truth. It cannot be right. He is a clever man. He is repeating this phraseology time and again. Ho can he possibly not understand the fallacy of what he asserts?

He may be a clever man in some respects, but it seems that his arrogance about his view on this exceeds the scope of his brainpower.

Maybe the extensive media exposure he's recently enjoyed has caused him to become rather swollen-headed?
