As pointed out, there's no indication that these will offset against loss of trade with the EU.

The fact there's trade doesn't mean we will be better off for it or that growth and wages will keep up with inflation in the long run.

It's just possible OB, that a single country won't get as good deals as they had as part of a larger trading block. Schoolboy economics. Bozza and his Eton buddies probably studied Latin or something as useless instead.

There is nothing different about your view though, you’ve regurgitated the same negative crap since, 2016!

One endeavours to maintain a certain continuity Mick True, my view hasn't changed. I just meant a different one to yours, which also hasn't changed which is fair enough. However still room for both views, surely?

Some peoples views have changed though, it's been nearly 4 years. Maybe we should ask the question again, now we know what deal on offer? i.e. brino, the break up of the United Kingdom, and an economically poorer country. Not selling it to you, am I?

Re: Brexit Development(s) Discussion

Not at all and I’m not convinced we need to ask again. It wouldn’t bother me if we did, the way Remain Maniac MPs have been behaving and the EU itself, we’d win again, but we shouldn’t have to ask again. The original result should have been enacted by now.

The DUP has threatened to unite with Labour to back a customs union this week as it warned it will unleash “guerilla warfare” to bring down Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal.

In a move that could torpedo the Prime Minister’s strategy for delivering Brexit by Oct 31, senior DUP figures have threatened to back proposals which could prevent the UK from pursuing its own trade policy.

Should MPs back an amendment for customs union this week, Mr Johnson could be forced to pull the legislation required to ensure the UK leaves the European Union on time.

On Sunday night a senior DUP figure told The Daily Telegraph there were “multiple scenarios with multiple options for us to resist Johnson’s anti-UK deal,”...

Re: Brexit Development(s) Discussion

This farce has gone on long enough.

This Parliament is impotent and not fit for purpose.

We need a 1 month extension, and a general election.

The entire purpose of the photocopy and no signature was to create a red herring.

The real story that BoJo didn't want the media to focus on is that he has gone back on his word to leave on 31 October. And the red herring worked!
Indeed, the leave date of 31 October is now being downplayed on Government websites. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-50117797

Quote:
Parliamentary sovereignty is a principle of the UK constitution. It makes Parliament the supreme legal authority in the UK, which can create or end any law. Generally, the courts cannot overrule its legislation and no Parliament can pass laws that future Parliaments cannot change. Parliamentary sovereignty is the most important part of the UK constitution.
