I'll be first by saying well done Boris. Now let's get Brexit done.

It can’t be *done* for at the very least another year .

But will it be Well Done, Medium Rare, Rare or Blue?

Is it a coincidence that blue is the opposite of well done?

Looks like Blue could be off the menu: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50818134

I'd say that guarantees the opposite of well done.

Personally I don’t think Brexit is a good idea and I don’t think someone who has lost multiple jobs for lying should be Prime Minister. That’ll be Mute’s cue to point out that the other candidates weren’t much good either. Mute is very protective of Boris.

However, Brexit is happening and Boris has won an election. So he needs the space to get the best Brexit deal he can in his own way.

I’ve just seen Mr Gove on TV reassuring the nation that there will be a deal by the end of next year. Let’s hope he is correct but I also hope we all agree that if that isn’t achieved it will be an enormous failure on the government’s part and that they can’t shift the blame onto anyone else.

It takes two to agree a deal, now the leaving date is settled Im sure the big businesses that export to the UK will be applying pressure to the EU side to stop paying silly buggers, of course there will be some in the EU that will worry if the UK thrives outside of their club others might get itchy to leave. At least if the end date is confirmed by law as the end of next year it will concentrate minds on both sides

That’s what I believed during the referendum campaign but I was told I was part of project fear. The Tories have said they’ll be a deal by the end of next year. They didn’t spell out that this is conditional on the EU offering us exactly what we want. If the Tories don’t deliver they have failed. You seem to be starting to line up an excuse already. I’m guessing you don’t have much confidence.
