I was summing things up in my mind and came to the conclusion that the most important single event that will ultimately lead to a "no deal" Brexit was Theresa May's failure (for whatever reason) to resign after the historic rejection of her Brexit deal by Parliament. I think if she had resigned we would have had another course of action and not the running down of the clock that we are seeing.

We may have had an extension of Article 50, its withdrawal, a vote of no confidence and an election, or some such.

Essentially Tory Party politics have kept her (there is nobody else) in power, which means that the UK is going to go over Niagara Falls in a pork barrel.

Closely followed by the EU, perhaps?

Hmmn.....


Eurozone crisis: German output slumps AGAIN - fears grow for bloc’s largest economy
GERMAN industrial output surprisingly fell in December for the fourth consecutive month, putting the eurozone on high alert and increasing concerns around Europe’s biggest economy.
The latest data from the country’s Federal Statistics Office revealed industrial output was down 0.4 percent on November. This was in complete contrast to a forecast from Reuters for an increase of 0.7 percent. Industrial output was also down 3.9 percent on the same month a year earlier.

The Federal Statistics Office said the motor sector -vital to Germany’s economy but has been a drag because new emissions standards translated into fewer new vehicle registrations - rebounded as output rose more than seven percent.
The figure total for November was revised up to a fall of 1.3 percent from a previously reported drop of 1.9 percent.
Thomas Gitzel of VP Bank Group, warned not to expect an upturn in the German economy anytime soon.
He said: "A positive GDP reading in the fourth quarter of 2018 now looks tight.

It is the latest in a series of blows for Germany’s economy - valued at £3trillion - as it struggles to rebound from struggles in 2018.

Last week, the country’s manufacturing sector plunged into contraction territory, dropping to 49.7 points in January from 51.1 in December, according to the latest figures from IHS Markit.

On Wednesday, Deutsche Bank warned the country’s economy is under serious threat of hurtling towards recession.

Germany’s largest lender expects Eurozone’s largest economy to contract further during this quarter, with new business surveys pointing towards souring moods at companies and worsening expectations for new orders.

Deutsche Bank economists, including Sebastian Becker, wrote in a report: “The start of the German economy into 2019 has been a major disappointment so far.
“The development of several key cyclical indicators is telling us that the German economy is drifting towards recession right now.”

Clearly, the governor of the BoE is economically clueless!

Or, if I want to be kinder (and I don't), maybe a little schizoid.

Why should she have resigned? I don't think you understand UK politics.

No one else wants her job at the moment and Corbyn cannot even agree with Kier Starmer what Labour's policy on Brexit might be.

How much can we charge for scotch eggs being exported ?
do we only make them in scotland ?

Can we use the champagne /vodka ruling and ensure that they are genuine and charge an arm and a leg ? lol

edit a deceiving title, so looks like they were aptly named as some soldiers made them in the scots guard in London
other source say William J Scott & Sons of London made them.

Will this still be occurring if no deal is reached?

I think the time and date is set, no matter the deal.

The EU might be willing to give us time to revoke Article 50, but i don't see them giving us an extension to arse around any further.

if its legal then invoking article 50 means Scotland invoke their article 30 legally !

What's legal for some is not always legal for the rest through.

Especially where "There" type is concerned.

Just need to wait and see what happens i suppose.
