They'll blame remainers, if only people had believed more they'll whine, conveniently ignoring all the stuff that's been pointed out to them for years by experts whose opinion they dismissed out of hand

Why should we be economically poor? We're not Ireland, not Greece etc and nothing like them.

We are divorcing the political union, they can and hopefully will still be our largest trading partner. Why do we have to be in a political union with them to still trade with them?

Re: Brexit

Sometimes I think those supporting Brexit, think it means we'll get the Empire back and most of the World will be pink again.....

How many trade agreements has the wonderful Dr Fox set up ? How many do the EU have? If we do negotiate any deals we'll be on very weak ground and other countries will know it. The US, China, Russia and the EU will have strength, we on our own will not. Wake up to reality chaps.

Well you’d be wrong then wouldn’t you.

Quote:

As you well know, we can't sign any deals until we leave. As to how many we have “ lined up” i don’t know, perhaps we’d be a bit more successful if the countries we hoped to do deals with actually thought that we were leaving. Why would you do a deal with us now? Why would you waste time and money trying to do a deal with a country whose Parliament wanted to remain in the EU??

It’s a trade deal, not a hostage negotiation.

They will protect the Republic of Ireland as they are EU members.
Expecting an easy ride over trade as we are quitting the EU political union seems overly optimistic. Just like any large trading block, they hold the power.

Easy ride over what exactly. What power?

we don’t need to be in a political union with them to trade with them.

Well, of course. That's what May did wrong. She started out wanting a close and special relationship with the EU. They spotted her weakness and boom - they set the rules which she stupidly accepted. It would have been very different had we been preparing for No Deal right from the start and taking that position as one for the EU to solve if they didn't want tariffs on their goods.

Whilst on the subject of Ireland, which country immediately lent them 7 billion to tide them over at the financial crash? Yep - the UK and that's hoe that perfidious Varadkar thanks us. A reason on its own to leave with no deal.

Only if you believe it was a failing relationship - better for the kids (the U.K. population) if the parents tried to resolve any issues, rather than divorcing and making everyone worse off just because one of the partners had their head turned by a smooth talking Lothario* who schmoozed them by promising them the earth, but had no means, or intention, of trying to deliver it...

No, but we have to negotiate with a bloc of 400 million people and a GDP six times the size of the U.K., which gives them the upper hand in negotiating.

And what outrageous demands are you expecting from them as seen as we are absolutely aligned in regards to standards and regulations?

Sovereignty allows us to make our own way, our own muffins, without their domination, without their corrupt CAP, without their corrupt Fishing Rules, without things being skewed for France and Germany.

That's got to be worth something.
