(Reuters) - More than 70 British business groups representing over 7 million workers have made a last-ditch attempt to persuade politicians to get back on the dialogue table next week to strike a deal with the European Union, the Financial Times newspaper reported on Sunday.

 

The groups ranged from the CBI, TheCityUK and techUK to the National Farmers' Union, British Retail Consortium and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and asked for the sides to find a compromise over trade terms, the report added https://on.ft.com/2H8JayB.

 

"With compromise and tenacity, a deal can be done. Businesses call on leaders on both sides to find a route through", the newspaper quoted the groups as saying in a statement.

A few polls from different political tendencies may give an idea.   Personally I think, except a few radicals, nobody really care about this Brexit thing now, 4 years ago, sure.

However, starting next year, assuming it change concretely their daily life, it may again.

A few radicals! 🤣

As Johnson is hell bent on sinking sterling, I doubt he'll take any notice of business groups, only the commands of his back benchers who keep him in power.

 

As for the EU, I trust Barnier will sink the Euro as well. Politicians - we could do without these despots.

Yes, indeed.

An opinion of course, as there are no up to date data available.

Best to use the last known data point then. It's only 4 years old.

Churchill said the biggest single argument against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with your average voter (or words to that effect)........the average voter is how we ended up with Brexit.

So cruel..with fickerunus connotations of course.
