I suspect Brexit and Tory will do an under the table deal.
Labour is wandering around in the wilderness with numerous splinters up its arse from fence sitting and the Libdems have clearly demonstrated they give not a fig for democracy by talk of repealing article 50
All in all it should be an interesting election with many more honest politicians on the benches and the treacherous dwarf sent packing.

I detect a little ray of sunshine - let us hope it does not turn into a winter of discontent for the democracy loving brexiteers.

I see Farage says the new deal "is not Brexit."

That suggests when the next election comes there is a fair change the Brexiteer vote is split, despite Johnson's efforts to get as many as possible of them to back the Conservatives.

At the risk of getting told off, of course anyone can add a few rows to a spreadsheet. The complexity comes from the administrative systems you need to obtain the numbers you enter, and be able to prove them to be accurate when the tax inspector arrives.

Adding a few more lines to a spreadsheet is hardly a stepchange in complexity.Even the most mediocre book keeper could accomplish such a task. Each time there is a budget a company has to review it's payroll deductions and revenue liabilities and review the impact on the bottom line. That applies to a one man band or a cast of thousands.

Just to clarify that a bit: I realise the biggest companies that already trade outside the EU probably have such systems already and it is a relatively small increase in complexity. It is the middle size companies that trade widely but only within the EU that have the step-change in administrative complexity.

What happens about VAT for Northern Ireland will be a bit of a nightmare. As pointed out by many, including Nigel, the UK wants to be free to use a different system. For the sake of a name, let's call it Purchase Tax (PT), though it may differ significantly from the earlier incarnation of that.

So when I sell into the UK, I need to use PT, and when I sell into the EU, I need to use VAT.   And I also have to keep sufficient checks to ensure I do not ever accidentally apply the wrong tax to a product, o I need traceability right through from product, through warehousing and dispatch. Some components in the product may have come from an EU source, and the tax is reclaimable, and some from the UK, where whether there is any ability to reclaim is unknown.

That sounds a lot of bureaucracy added into each and every business, and VAT was always claimed to be heaviliy bureaucratic on its own.

Angela Merkel is quite rightly pointing out that a large economy will be sitting on the EU's doorstep and will be more of a competitor than a partner. She is particularly concerned about the banking sector, which the UK dominates. No-one has ever suggested that the EU won't be hurt by brexit. But she was putting the EU side. She was not focusing on the UK side, which is that we will be hurt by brexit a damn sight more than the EU will. Only hubris-ridden little Englanders who have decided to ignore every economic forecast by every economist are denying that. And even they are a dying breed, I've noticed.

The biggest poll since the referendum itself, conducted for ITN by ComRes with 26,000 Britons, conclusively shows the public want Brexit sorted, with 54% of respondents saying we should support abiding by the referendum result and leave the EU. Even greater than the original 52:48 split…

As for saying Brexit is a tory thing, since when was blair a tory?
You do post some rather silly subject matter BWM. Remember this:
Tue 20 Apr 2004 13.30 BST

Mr Blair said: "The electorate should be asked for their opinion.
It is time to resolve once and for all whether this country, Britain, wants to be at the centre and heart of European decision-making."

He concluded: "Let the issue be put - and let the battle be joined."

The EU is an organisation of States working under an unequal and gradually failing system, as all countries are
In the opinion of some Labour members, that is not worth supporting, others believe that it is the best on offer at the present time
Given the rise of extremist right wing extremism/violence, I would tend to go along with the latter - for now
The fact that that extremism has been encouraged and even fostered by Brexit, only adds to my qualified support
It needs to be remembered that not all Labour Party members are socialists - yet

The influence of that Extremism has now been spotted in Ireland in the shape of right-wing outside groups honing in and taking advantage of recent (unfortunately successful) protests opposing the opening of Oughterard in County Galway - dangerous and sad at the same time

Brexit is nothing to do with the Labour Party. It’s a Tory project, begun by the Tories, who steadfastly refused to co-operate with any of the other parties to form a cross-party Brexit team.

No reason for Labour to get involved, the Tories are making a very nice bollocks of their insane project on their own. Which, of course, is why you’re busy trolling in order to draw attention away from the utter disaster the Tories, led by their Unelected Bureaucrat and his poodle-PM, are getting us into.

Meanwhile does anyone understand the Labour Party position on Brexit?
I suspect a general election in the near future is inevitable and one of the major parties still has no definite stance.
Good news that Antoinette Sandbach not only lost the whip but has also been de selected. Hopefully the first of many. She was elected on a brexit ticket and continually voted against the government. Very pleasant to see her get her comeuppance.
Magic grandads past is catching up with him. During an Emergency Question on Turkey in the Commons, Raab raised the importance of the role of NATO, fairly going on to remind the house about Corbyn’s prominent anti-NATO past. Thornberry began spitting feathers over Raab’s audacity to cite the past stated positions of the Leader of the Labour Party…

(As an aide-memoire for the shadow foreign secretary, her dear leader has in the past claimed NATO was set up to “promote a Cold War with the Soviet Union” and wrote a column for the Morning Star entitled “High time for an End to Nato” )

However, it added that there had been "short-term genuine rises in hate crime" following certain events such as the 2016 EU referendum and "part of the increase over the last year may reflect a real rise in hate crimes recorded by the police".

"Racism does not exist because of Brexit. "
Of course it did - it's our legacy from Empire Days
Brexit took what was basically a benign racism and turned ito a POLITICAL WEAPON and we got Brexit
Powell tried the same tactic and it it failed miserably - Britain, for all its faults was a little more decent then
Where Powell failed Farage succeeded
The link between the the sharp rise in racism and the Brexit is no longer seriously disputed - NOT EVEN BY THE TORY DAILY TELEGRAPH
And it's spreading all over the planet - go look at what happened in Germany last week and even at the Bulgarian football match

Well, Stanron, at 07.06am today I gave you a quote that I was honest enough not to edit to my advantage. Since I did that you've said that you wouldn't look at it ("first four words...") and, later, you quoted from it selectively ("The Home Office said increases in hate crime over the last five years have been mainly driven by improvements in crime recording by the police..."), dishonestly failing to continue the quote which referred to the referendum and the terrorist attacks.

I said you were in denial, and all your posts today confirm that. You make things worse by rattling on about "proof," which no-one else is doing. So here's the thing. The referendum leave campaign, cheer-led by the PM you support, dishonestly whipped up xenophobia about EU citizens with a poster promoted by his biggest ally that depicted refugees of colour, not EU jobseekers. His main slogan was about taking back control of our borders, which meant keeping foreigners out. Compounding this, your leave cheerleader has a long history of racism (piccaninnies, watermelon smiles, letterboxes, bank robbers), of homophobia (tank-topped bum boys) and of misogyny (hot totty, tottymeter, pat her on the bum and send her on her way, naturally fickle women, vote Tory and your wife will grow bigger breasts, blubbing blondes). That's your man, Stan. And argue all you like that all that stuff has nothing to do with hate crime. Well he may protest that he doesn't actively support hate crime, and he may be right. But he is the prime minister, and, as such, he is one of the leading setters of the agenda in this country. I can't prove, and don't want to, that his agenda and woeful past history has exacerbated hate crime. But your lament that we can't "prove" it is just laughable.
If the PM of this country serially acts in a thuggish and boorish manner, most sentient beings would conclude that some of that is bound to rub off and steer the whole ethos of the country in the direction of crude philistinism.

That racism existed pre-Brexit is not being contested - it’s a fact that it did exist.

But it is also a fact that the racist nature of the Leave campaign - posters of The Man-Frog pointing at a line of refugees (as it turned out, queueing at the Slovenian border, fuck all to do with the UK), references by the same Man-Frog to ‘70 million Turks waiting to flood into the UK, vans telling foreigners to ‘go home’, demonisation of Eastern Europeans and Muslims - gave the racists, who had previously kept their racism very much in the dark for fear of transgressing the hate-speech laws, a voice, a belief that they now had freedom to express their racist views openly.

That is how Brexit and racist Brexiteers carry the burden of blame for the rapid increase in hate-crimes.

And, of course, the Brexit-Boneheads denying it won’t change the facts one iota.

Do you ever actually think about what you are posting? Racism does not exist because of Brexit. There was plenty of racism before 2016. It suits the Left agenda to misinterpret some genuine social concerns as racism and then campaign against it. This in itself can be read as a cause of increased racism.

It's a really clever trick. Exacerbate racism and then blame it on something you oppose. It might fool sheep.

Why the selective quote, Stanron? Why not give us the next line

They said there were "spikes in hate crime following certain events such as the EU Referendum and the terrorist attacks in 2017."

Why not tell us how many leave supporters have been murdered for their views?

Or how many times you have been told to "fuck off back to Poland where you belong"

Or been called a traitor who should be taken out and shot?

Or how many remain posters showed hoards of dodgy dark skinned characters waiting to come and take your jobs?

Maybe then you can tell us that brexit has nothing to do with the increase in hate crime.

"I don't deny that there have been hate crimes. "
Good
Thoose hate crimes have ben linked to Brexit since people began to ask people "when are you going home" the day after the result was announced
They are now approaching a totally unprecedented rise of 50% - perfectly in line with the gradual disintegration of Parliamentary democracy and the increasing warnings of civil disorder - including those contained in "Yellowhammer"
Jo Cox's murder should have been warning enough of what happened
Farages's poster was a direct appeal to Britain's historical mistrust of foreigners - the same mistrust that Powell used when he was drummed out of politics
Last week's attack on a German Synagogue is an indication that the hare crowds are no longer confining their attacks to Musilims
It's about time you people acted responsibly and look at what your behaviour is doing - to other nationalities as well as British democracy
If you don't smell the toast soon the kitchen will burn down around your ears

In denial of what though?

I don't deny that there have been hate crimes. The only definite connection between hate crimes and Brexit are chronological. They have happened in the same period of time. You may choose to believe that hate crimes are caused by Brexit but I believe you are fooling yourselves. It's a convenient belief so you conveniently accept it as true. I suspect that proof will be hard to come by.

”The first four words will do.”

Which translates as, “La-la-la” (with Stan’s hands firmly clasped to his ears). Hardly an intelligent response, either as written, or in translation, is it?
