"Think about it again," German minister urges UK on Brexit

BERLIN (Reuters) - German Europe Minister Michael Roth urged Britain on Monday to think about reviewing its decision to leave the European Union.

 

"The door to the EU always remains open - perhaps think about it again," Roth told German broadcaster ARD. Asked if that meant holding a second referendum, he replied: "Exactly."

 

After seeing her deal to leave the EU resoundingly defeated in parliament last week, British Prime Minister Theresa May has opened talks with lawmakers from all parties to try to find a way to move forward with Brexit.

 

"I have often said Shakespeare could not have written any better the tragedy we are now witnessing in Britain," Roth said. "I am not so sure now, because Shakespeare would have pushed up against the limits of his imagination," Roth said.

 

"I expect firstly that the Britons say now what they want. They have in the past weeks told us what they don't want. Now we need a clear signal. We are ready for negotiations," he added.

 

Separately, Economy Minister Peter Altmaier told RBB radio he was optimistic a so-called hard - or no-deal -Brexit could be avoided.

A wise man not afraid to say what many British people also think and say. Danke sehr!

 

But the stubborn arrogant inept and intellectually challenged May will flog her crap deal till it's too late and Britain falls into the hands of the loony tunes Brexit backers like barmy Boris, dubious Reece Moog and weasel Gove; and the communist Corbyn who flounders like some 70's time warped militant.

 

A "back to Victorian Britain, of a very rich elite minority and very poor everyone else" or socialist "paradise" a la Venezuela under the neo-communist anti UK terrorists' friend comrade Corbyn.

 

Difficult to decide which is more repulsive!

They should have thought about this two years ago and negotiated with Britain a better deal than the one just voted out. The best way forward now is to leave with no deal. 

 

That's right - jump of the cliff into the unknown. Might be a soft landing on your feet after all!
