Well, think that if you like, Nigel. But for example you said

Yep,
Accept that we are never going to reach an agreed settlement with the EU, and use the remaining 4 months to plan for leaving on WTO terms.


Four months after November 2018? Ah yes, the end of March 2019. It is no great leap to believe your statement of 23 December, about 4 weeks later, was referring to the same date. And then, a little while later (12 Jan 2019) I also suggested your prediction was for that date, and whether you overlooked that post or chose not to reply, you did not correct me then.

So while I say for the third time I accept you did not explicitly give both halves of the prediction at the same time, you did tie leaving on WTO rules and the date together a few weeks earlier, so it is not unreasonable to consider you still had that date in mind for the prediction. Certainly, you gave not the slightest hint against it.

That's all I have to say on this. Shall we agree to move onto actual events to do with Brexit, shall we?
