Post Brexit Development(s) Discussion

For clarification purposes, we are not stifling Brexit Debate. You have to admit there has been a lot of it, for the last three years.

Lots of bickering, lots of petty insults from both sides. We have to move forward.

So this is the absolute final Brexit thread that I’m going to allow on CF.

This thread will be open during any new Brexit Developments. Should the thread return in to the usual squabbling. Then I’m going to introduce individual topic bans. Members will be forbidden to participate, for a period to be predetermined by the team. If you post in the thread while banned from doing so, your post will be deleted and you will be suspended for 1 day and possibly longer.


Today’s update on Brexit: Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has gone to Brussels for talks with Juncker and Barnier.

UK Supreme Court release information on timing and other information... Has a nice link for Case by Case Arguments, which the SC Justices would have reviewed by now.... Looks like a three day affair.

Snails for lunch, quite apt given the time leaving is taking.
i think BJ is playing his cards close to his chest and not leaking any information until the moment is right.

Plus there's always the possibility that he hasn't actually got a winning hand and is just putting on his poker face and bluffing.

That might well be the case as it might be all bluff.

His backers are "all in" for no deal to the tune of shorting the pound by £8bn. There will be no credible offer to the EU.

Re: Brexit Development(s) Discussion

I read that Junker would actually like to get a deal before he goes, presumably as part of his legacy. However, I am really not sure what game he is playing! One thing he will know is that BJ isn't in a mood to take any nonsense about yet another extension or settle for the backstop.

Not much time left now, though. Looking forward to what Boris will say at conference!

The Hulk runs scared of protesters and leaves the PM of Luxembourg to upstage him.

Given that the protestors just wanted to drown him out, I don't blame him for pulling out. It's not a case of running scared. He's just not prepared to waste his time trying to shout above the noise of the hooligans.

Here I thought the right to peaceful protest was something key in a democracy.

By not being accountable? Sounds closer to Marxism to me. Abolish all media except that friendly to the state.

Surely, you don't invite a leader of another country you're about to share a press conference with, in front of a very very noisy rabble.

It was damn right rude of Xavier Bettel and he jolly ought to know it, he knew what he was doing and he and the EU might come to realise how much this will backfire back at home. You do not have to like Johnson but there was no need to be so rude, we are the guests and they treated us with contempt with that stunt.

Re: Brexit Development(s) Discussion

I keep seeing it mentioned that the EU are adamant that the 'backstop' remains in the current withdrawal agreement, but "is willing to look at alternatives, but that an insurance policy like the backstop must be in place".

I was under the impression everyone has been looking at an alternative for ages, but nobody has found one. Has Boris found something that's 'almost' good enough that the EU are considering, and this is why they're all playing things down until it gets sorted?
