Or we could just go our own way.

Re: [Updated] The UKs future relationship with the EU

I agree with Pip.

The psychology of the UK side saying we'll walk away in June if there seems to be no prospect is a correct negotiating position. It might, only might, focus the arrogant EU's mind so that something reasonable might emerge - failing which our efforts must concentrate on going our own way.

I think we need to focus our efforts on the Coronavirus. As Chris says, the request for an extension will most likely happen in the Summer and not now.

This is case of working together. Doesn't matter who makes the breakrough, as long as we share info and don't duplicate research. Little Englanders and Brexit are pointless waste of time and effort atm.

Another person who *still* doesnt get it.

Brexit was about taking back control, not withholding cooperation. There are plenty of ways in which intergovernmental cooperation can occur, without the dead hand of Brussels bureaucracy adding layers of complexity. We manage it via the ESA, to pick one single example.

Vaccine research can occur quite happily with laboratories in different countries talking to each other and sharing the workload. The last thing we need in emergency situations like this is bureaucrats insisting on their cherished regulatory frameworks.

Where is the evidence that the EU as a whole has done anything about the virus? It's left to the individual countries so far as I can tell. There's no defence against a pandemic and the EMA might as well not exist for all the effect we have so far noted. That'll get you going.

Re: [Updated] The UKs future relationship with the EU

It’s just the whining remain lobby grasping at anything they think they can still use to keep the UK tightly aligned with the EU.

I’m all for intergovernmental cooperation. The problem with doing anything through the EU is that it is enormously difficult not to get sucked in to the wider bureaucracy, oversight of the political activists at the ECJ and pressure to ‘dynamically align’ our processes as those within the EU change.

Re: [Updated] The UKs future relationship with the EU

If the EU approves something, we in the UK can rubber stamp acceptance of it in the UK. The other way around might not be so simple, ie the UK approves something, how long would it take the EU to accept it?


The EU whinged about the US travel ban because the US didn't ask permission from the EU to do it. Now certain EU countries are having their own travel bans in place.

Wrong link. But, of course, I note you pray in aid the Grauniad and Observer, top Project Fear rags.

I think it's not a bad idea to go our own way and build our wealth according.
