Is Boris the Cloaked Remainer?

Teacher’s Pet continues to grapple with irate, brick-lobbing farm-workers across France and can ill afford a big market for French cheeses, wines etc suddenly closing down over the Channel. The “yellow-jacket” protesters are determined and angry, on occasion burning EU flags.

The Crazy Events of the Past Month and What They Mean for 2020

"North Korea has indicated they have no intention of continuing, and the initial deal itself is being exposed as the fraudulent nothing-burger it always was.
