    I'm a sucker for history and while i thought about the worst scenario for the current "U.K" at the dawn of a very hard brexit my brain scanned for how many revolutions the Britisch Island had in the past and when it happened.

    In no particular order and not complete:
    Magna Carter, 13th century that wasn't really a revolution but the first brick to end absolute monarchy
    Bill of rights, 17th century the beginning of the end of absolute monarchy
    Cromwell, 16th century Britain was a republic !!! for a short period of time
    Peasants’ Revolt, 14th century got smashed but in aftermath serfdom faded out
    Industrial revolution, 19/20th century although that one was global but it roots are in England


    Maybe the island can add some more revolutions soon:
    In 2 to 5 years peeps will protest to get back into the E.U. because England's economy is smashed to pieces.
    Scotland independent, no more U.K.
    With a hard brexit i give Irland a good chance to get reunited within the next 10 years.

    Funny you mention the Japan deal...
    FT wrote an article on the 13th, paywall so I cannot link.

    You remember the big State Aid rules blocker in the UK-EU trade deal negotiations?
    (In short UK doesn't want to limit how much a private company is supported, although UK's State Aid figures are about the half of the EU average.)
    Funny thing is, in the UK-Japan trade deal UK signed a waaaay harsher State Aid rules, and the UK has to legislate... or brake their first major trade deal.

    Mr Frost must be shitting bricks right now.
    When I read it this morning I almost spit my coffee.
    I can just imagine all those trade negotiation professionals around the world congratulating their Japanese peers for this excellent move.

    I've a feeling the Lords will rip that bill to pieces. And as it wasn't in the Tory manifesto and isn't related to the budget, I'm not sure what the government would be able to do to force it through other than creating about 300 new peers.

    The lords can't block something forever. It will pass eventually

    The withdrawal agreement pingpong last year proved that

    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    I think they can reject it three times before it can automatically pass the lords. If there is a hill to die on, this isn't a bad one.

    The Lords can bounce it back as often as they want within a single parliamentary session. The Commons can bypass the Lords with the bill in the subsequent parliamentary session.

    What makes a man turn neutral?

    Lust for gold?

    Power?

    Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?
