Only fools and horses would want to see it. Just accept it and move on.  Why? because it's a compromise which is about as it's good as it's going to get even if brexit was prolonged for eternity. Forget ideology and stick to real life challenges - the ones that affect most of the population.. 

I suspect the people who are impacted by the deal would like to see it.

The realism is that it could never happen. Too much water has passed under the bridge to even hope for that. 

There are no sure bets when it comes to Brexit ! Any the deal is the just the beginning of a huge amount of effort , red tape, shadowing EU rules for deals still more wasted time to be worse off than we were.

Oh no, not another 17.4 million... IMO, any freaking deal is better than no deal which would impact practically everyone.

That's for the UK government to resolve, not the people who are probably fed up to their bottom teeth with brexit.

Apparently May and Johnson both had briefings from the heads of the securities services and Northern Ireland police that intelligence strongly suggested that any infrastructure built either in NI or the Republic or any lorry checks in event of a No Deal would be magnet for recruitment and revival of the IRA - he is reported to have blanched when told he would be responsible for that should it happen. No Deal from the tories was off from then and forever.

Probably time to retire from the Brexit threads then as this is entering The Mousetrap territory.

Why is there so much negativity on this forum? A British trait, I suspect. Sitting on bar stools bemoaning about anything that is flavour of the month. If and when johnson succeeds, people will forget everything and move on to other topics in a few days.  

 

Hopefully, climate change.

No barstool here am on sofa watching all this on a 65" TV. Anyway I will hold Johnson to his promise 'to leave the EU by October 31st' or die in a ditch.

I quite prefer Boris actually, much more of an entertaining clown show.

 

But you missed my point, he opposed essentially the same deal as a way to undermine May and get him to PM. Now he’s PM, the deal is all of a sudden ‘great’.

 

 

Nope, you are wrong .

Boris rejected Mays deal unless She made real change to the Irish backstop question .

  Now Boris has made changes to the backstop .

Boris has a new different deal to Mays previous proposals

Yes, the difference is that it took solid leadership to convince the EU we were leaving regardless. The EU dragged their heels all this time and took it right to the wire, letting us out only when they had punished us enough for the uncertainty and were finally convinced that we are going to leave.

 

In other words, we have endured years of hell entirely because of the remainers' ceaseless and pusillanimous tantrum that fuelled the EU's desperate hope that it wouldn't happen. The remainers have undermined British political integrity all along with an unequalled exhibition of utterly grotesque and unbritish behaviour.

 

Well done Boris. I would rather get out without any compromises at all, but in the circumstances let's just get out and watch the EU crumple.

Strange comment since this deal seems quite similar to May's deal. And May's deal was rejected by UK, not EU.

I think it is more related to 'leave now with this deal or without one', I don't think many really want a new extension.
