Brexit brinkmanship: Johnson says prepare for no-deal, cancels trade talks

That's not what we want.

 

We'd like a simple, mutually beneficial FTA, similar to the one they already gave to Canada. But if the EU is still sulking and crying about being rejected by Britain then that's fine, we'll go WTO.

 

The price the EU currently wants for an FTA is way too high. If the price is too high, it's always best to walk away. Especially if it's the EU offering the sky high price, because they have proved themselves to be a bunch of charlatans, no better than conmen and shysters with their pathetic bait and switch tactics. The British people and the British government are sick of their nonsense. Roll on 31 December.:clap2:

At last...

There will be no downside to Brexit, only considerable upside. David Davis   The day after we vote to leave we hold all the cards and can choose the path we want. Michael Gove

Why should the EU negotiate with an ex-member, that voted to leave ? They should let Britain stand outside in the cold for twenty or twenty-five years. Then maybe let them back in, if they ask nicely.

Hilarious so if  those 27  countries  all had an 3  trillion economy it should   be  81   trillion instead of the paltry 18.4  trillion

He said Downing St was in a huff, perhaps referring to the comment telling the EU rep not to bother coming to London for talks.

On Marr's programme, Gove said the door to further talks was not closed, it was ajar. 

"No we are still in the huff and dont want to talk". This is what he quoted, the clues in the quotation marks. I asked if he could provide source for his quote, is it wrong to question someones quote?

Your United Kingdom does not appear to be very united though does it?

In fact your only method of currently keeping the UK together is to refuse people a democratic vote on whether they want to stay in the union.

Now the last union I can remember which adopted the same policy was the USSR. 

I presume you're referring to Scotland - they already had one! In case you don't remember, they voted to remain in the UK. Or do you want to keep having them until you get the result that satisfies you. 555

please read again my previous post on Canada: the short negotiation format imposed by the UK makes a Canada deal impossible. The CETA started 2004 ended in 2010

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comprehensive_Economic_and_Trade_Agreement

 

To kickoff a Canada FTA the UK negotiation team would need to pragmatically set up the timeframe and DO IT 

 

another issue : to negotiate such a deal you need a big competent team of experts, and sadly these competences are not here.

 

You all remember the opening of the negotiations. The UE team arrives after extensive preparation and ready, while the UK team arrives with a big smile having done nothing

 

I guess the UK will go on complaining about it, but there can be no Canada deal, whatever Boris Johnson wants you to believe.

Now Mr Macron is threatening an embargo

You know these English tabloids are absolute <deleted> do you? 

 

Nowadays, even taking serious sources, it's very complicated to sort out lies from the truth.

 

 

...But if you start with a <deleted> source, there is no way ...

As per now  the British government has a particular attitude towards the E.U..

This attitude may change if it obtain what it wants from the E.U..

 

The British people has expressed their opinion about Brexit 4 years ago.

What their  opinion is about the actual Brexit situation is unknown,

and thus open to speculations.

There are some polls about it,

the results  are accepted or disputed, 

based on each own opinion of the matter.

But as everything has a price,  your government is prepared to lease/rent its land and sea to others, but at the right price and conditions. 

Ah, but you're missing the whole point. It will be OUR right, OUR price and OUR conditions - not the EU's

Read up on the recent general election that was called to sort that out Brexit.

Boris had a landslide victory, something the remainers are still smarting over and don't mention.... 

Yeah first past the post.

Fantastic democratic system of voting that is. 

In Hollyrood we have a far better system which means you have to actually get over 50% of the votes to get even a small majority.
