Brexit impact ████████ likely to be █████████

As we know, the Government has ███████████ fifty-█████ reports covering sectors as diverse as █████████, ███████, ████████ █████ Banking, and Higher ███████████. Understandably, people ██████ in those █████ wanted to know precisely how ████████ they were.

In what has been a regular ████████, the ███████, led by the ████████-in-███████ ████████ ██████ decreed that we mere ████████ were too ███████ ████████ ███████ to ██████ the contents.

So, finally, after months of pointless █████████, the massed forces of ██████, the L█████l Democrats, the Scottish National ██████, and the likelihood of rebel ████████ forced the ██████████ into a humiliating ██████████.

But no sooner were the █████████ out of the ███████ than certain Government figures exposed their ████████, ████████ing to ███████ out of a tight hole.

Lord Callanan, Brexit ████████ in the Lords’ ██████, claimed that while the motion ████████ ██ impact statements, the ███████ had actually █████ ████ ██████ ██████ sectoral analyses. A neat bit of █████████ by the Noble ████.

And then, ███████ ██████ ██████ cunning wheeze. Obviously, the ██████ runs, the EU must not be ██████████ to know █████████ ██████! If they knew what a brilliantly █████████ ███████ Brexit would be, then our ███████ to bluff successfully ██████ ████████ be fatally █████.

So, for the ██████ of our future ███████, ██████ and ███████, we can be █████ everything other than anything that ███████████████ if Brexit is ██████████ ███████ or ████ ███████ steaming ██████ of █████.

The decision of what constitutes ███████ seems likely to be ████████ by the very ███████ ██████ ██████████ that ███████ █████ ██████ this ███████████ ██████████ in the first place.

And who can say fairer than █████?

    It is true .The country does not deserve redacted information on the outcome of Brexit.The EU is not stupid they can get information on redacted info from statistics and other sources etc as to how Brexit will hit the outcome of negotiations. The people of the UK need to know the truth so that they can make an informed decision on our futures t does seem to me the Brexiteers are afraid to inform us. It would not be a sign of confidence on their part to redact the information.

    Shush! Surely you do not want people to find out that the government and the brave brexiteers are in disarray?

  • My worry is that they will retype the papers rather than publish them with gaps. We will not even know what sections have been tampered with. It happened to me once – I produced a paper for government, while working for a public sector body, but it was retyped with key sections missing before it was circulated, giving the impression that I had not reached the conclusion which I had.

  • @Nick Collin – You’re talking in an echo chamber again. You’ll only get 7% wagging their chins in approval.

    @ Jays – And where are you talking: in a sound-proof booth?

    Please don’t stretch my credulity by telling me that you think the government is doing well.

    Fadel: do you mean https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/200394 ? You seem to have set up a near-identical petition to that one.

    No-one but the Conservatives would negotiate on such a pivotal decision in such secrecy and think they can get away with it politically.
