With the major Parties locked in splits from the start - it's been certain that to get Brexit through the HoC would be 'problematic' in the extreme.

The way forward now ? Hopefully the Tories will elect a Brexit minded Leader. IF there is still a majority for Brexit amongst General Election voters, that could then deliver a Tory/Brexit Party coalition Government over a Lib Dem 'Remainer' coalition opposition. OR, looking down the barrel of a General Election gun  ::)  enough 'Remainer' Tory MP's might go with a Brexit flow to save their seats?

For sure, the Tory Govt. now needs STRONG and IMAGINATIVE Leadership . . .

I see the EU are as helpful as ever in their comments and am reminded of this posted by Hector some time ago - worth watching indeed. Love it  ;D

''Boris Johnson victim of 'plot to stop Brexit' as he faces criminal trial over Leave campaign

Britain’s top prosecutor has been urged to prevent the courts being “abused” in a plot to stop Brexit after Boris Johnson was told he could face trial over his part in the Leave campaign. The Tory leadership contender has been summonsed to appear before a judge to answer three charges of misconduct in a public office following a complaint that he “lied” about how much Britain gives to the EU. Marcus Ball, a Remain-backing campaigner, took out a private prosecution against Mr Johnson, claiming he was wrong to say during the EU referendum campaign that Britain gives £350 million a week to Brussels.''

Crikey if Mr Ball is going to sue every Politician who exaggerates, makes a mistake or a misleading statement, he's gonna be VERY busy   ;)  Time to move on from that one methinks.

Maybe the figure should have been GBP 250,000,000 a week -  ??? I don't suppose it made a jot of difference to anyone . . .

Thanks for that TW - that's Pattaya Utd in a new guise is it not ? After the game we stole last season, when Pattaya played us off the park but lost to Pina's shot from the half way line, I guess they truly deserved the luck this time  ;)

A tiny crowd  >:(  Were you there ?

Would've been a good one to win being nicely placed but now we are below minnows Trat !
Briefly I hope. ATB

Dateline 29th May 2019

 FT Samut Prakan City 2 NRFC 0

Attendance; 1530
The Swatcats took on high fliers Samut Prakan in this mid-week fixture. The visitors started without skipper Chalermpong.
The hosts opened brightly but in early action from the visitors, Henri, struck the upright with an angled drive after a splendid solo run down the flank.
With both sides willing to throw men forward and plenty of space in midfield, an early goal looked likely. On 20 minutes Ibson Melo nearly opened the scoring when his low drive shaved the post. The men from Korat countered with a period of pressure that culminated in Amadou being foiled by the home keeper after a mazy run.
Samut Prakan probed with Ibson Melo a constant threat, as they continued to play some great approach play. Unfortunately for them their final finishing was poor.
They finally opened the scoring in the 42nd minute when a shot cannoned off the upright into the path of Chayawat Srinawong who tapped into an empty net. The visitors replied with a looping cross that outfoxed the keeper and rebounded off the bar. 
An entertaining first half came to an end, with both sides trying to play positive football and with the Swatcats slightly unlucky to be one down.
The second half began with neither side able to create clear cut chances. It took until the 57th minute for a shot on target as keeper Cunningham smothered a low drive. This was becoming a “ping pong” battle with both sides breaking forward with very little end product.
The visitors began to exert pressure, looking for the equalizer and with inevitable gaps being left at the back, Samut Prakan sealed the points when Terraphol broke forward and stroked the ball into the net in the 73rd minute.
In the 93rd minute Ibson Melo almost made it three as he broke forward but his shot was comfortably saved by Cunningham.
A fairly straightforward victory for Samut Prakan tonight. The Swatcats looked dangerous going forward and defended stoutly but a talented Samut Prakan side deservedly took the victory and a valuable three points.

As usual, not for the faint hearted . . .
Almost unbelievable that 'Coroner' services are quite like this . .

Glenn Close does not want her spleen eaten by a dog  :o

''Now Mueller, speaking at long last to the American people, has again announced with fierce precision, that the President of the United States may have committed federal crimes, and that there is a process to prosecute a chief executive. And he reminded us, once again, that contrary to Trump's endless equivocation, "The Russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system," trying to "damage a presidential candidate." They aimed to hurt Hillary Clinton, he made plain -- something Trump refuses to acknowledge.''
